What do you expect a 2 year old to do? Understand everything?

This is beyond ridiculous... the things that people do. They should lock him up for awhile for him to reflect on his actions.

Again... while I hate any form of violence against humans and animals, sometimes I feel like those people should get a taste of their own medicine.

This kind of news always upsets me. It's such a pointless act of violence. (not that any act of violence has a point to start with)

Posted in: March 11, 2011: What are your memories of that day? See in context

It was the final day of exams at school so most of the teachers could get out early. It happened in the middle of my commute as I was about to transfer train in Mizonoguchi (Kawasaki) for the last 15 minutes train ride. I remember looking up quickly and finding a pillar to hold on to as it was shaking so much more than any other earthquakes. Most of the people around were all looking at each other and saying "Isn't this really long?"

I had figured the trains would start running again soon after so hung around with the other people stranded at the station, everyone being pretty relaxed. Very little news went around from what was happening, most people were waiting for things to go back to normal. As I was about to start walking home, a German girl approached me asking for information. She had just landed less than 2 weeks before in Japan and spoke little Japanese.

I spent the rest of the day trying to get her on the right bus home, eventually to give up and just bring her home with me so she could Skype with her family. When I got home and turned on the TV, it was the first time I saw what had really happened. It was very surreal. I drove her to a friend's house close to my place after that and asked my then boyfriend (now hubby) to stay home with me for the night. The next couple of days are kind of a haze. Reassuring everyone back home that we were fine, going out and seeing barely any lights on. Very strange.

What is really sad about all this is that the Japanese population has very little interest in how the politics are handled in this country, meaning he can get away with so much. At this rate, Japan will slowly start acting more and more like its neighbors and give even less freedom for people to think for themselves as to what is right or wrong.

Posted in: Man arrested for cutting schoolgirl's skirt in train car See in context


Considering how short the skirt is worn by middle-high schoolers, 3cm might have been enough to take a peek at her undies.

Do you really think that parents and school boards would allow for school uniforms to be that short? The actual school uniform skirts goes a little above the knee line. The girls roll up the skirts themselves to make them shorter. (For having witnessed this a lot at a school I once taught at) As for why they roll it up, well look at what they see on TV everyday leading them to believe that showing more skin is what cool people do.

One less pervert out in the streets, how many left?
