Wow and yet if this was Australia or Europe....he would have been 100% fine....since this equates to a bAC of about 0.03....and before you even ask...yes id be fine if he flew my plane in that state.

and 1 in 5 of these 1 in 5 have "been raped" aka woke up the next day after drinking and decided they regret what they did last night so it was rape....yet a man wakes up after the beer goggles have worn off and cannot do the same thing. Real rapes are a horrible crime....though not all reported are actually real.

Not for want of trying. They wanted to take 50. SS stopped them killing the other 49.

Yet only one of these activities is illegal. Those of the SS. Maybe you all should quit putting so much energy into supporting criminals, and support legislature to close the loophole.

funkymofo, wheres your facts? Japans last harvested fin whale was in 2009. They harvested 1. Iceland took 125... So your statement of they take fine whaleS is wrong. They took A fin whale in 2009. (source wikipedia, topic fin whale) yours is missing....

The fin whale sits fairly and squarely on the endangered list. *rolleyes

minke whales are not...*rolleyes

You have a right to not like whaling. But since Japan is conducting legal (see loophole) activity you will just end up like the US, NZ, an Aussies "disappointed".

Japan should come clean and ADMIT it is NOT doing research but WHALING! HUNTING of these endangered species ASAP!!

Well first of all they are not endangered so give that a rest. Number two as long as research is legal and this means of research is legal (see this is the loophole that allows them to continue this...legally) countries will voice their opinions and views, but no country is going to attack the Japanese because the Japanese are within the confines of the law.

With the amount of kids bullied to the piont of suicide and later finding out that the schools did nothing about it...i cant blame the father for doing something...however what he did (violence) is not the right way. Very touchy subject.

Nice! Sea shepherd is gonna lose this one, since they are the only ones ACTUALLY breaking laws here. You might not like whaling, but the Japanese are abiding by the law...albeit a loophole, but because of the loophole it is LEGAL

And there in lies the enigma of the duality of Japan...its both the victim and the aggressor. So depends on which side you want to look at the cup from and how you wanna argue. Also...isnt Japan and Russia still at war? No formal treaty or peace signed between those 2 nations?

probably more from the superficial relationships, lack of support and the loss combination made it easy to slip down the slippery slope. Not much of an outlet here for stress, and relationships are fairly superficial for the most part. Everyones answer here for stress is to throw some back...
