@David Brent:

Absolutely no offence intended, but J-anime collectibles are worth literally hundreds or even thousands in the West, show/series depending.

Also, some of us just like the toys as collectibles. Who are "you" to judge?

The perp is 28, the girl is 7.

Why do you think he "forced" her into his car? Arts & crafts?

You soft cun7...

I've been staring at this photo for 12 hours now (I had nothing better to do today ,-)) and I still can't work out if they're standing or sitting!

@Riperez: "One should also note that the US helped train and finance the Taliban."

But did they? I thought (and I stand to be corrected here!!!) they armed & trained the Mujahadin against the Sov "invaders" AND the Taliban, and then became the Northern Alliance?

@Reese: Don't get so down, mate.

I have no idea "where" you're staying, but I'm sure there are some Japanese pubs (Izakaya) nearby. I'd seriously recommend you stick your nose into one or two of those. Even if they look like seafood restaurants!

Maybe when you stick your head through the entrance curtain (if they have one), a quick and dirty "Daijobu desu ka?"(or just Daijobu?) and you should be fine.

I'd recommend you stay away from the foreign bars. You'll be in Japan FFS ... go Japanese!
