The guy and the case worker must have done something wrong with that woman.

Why else would the case worker help with disposing the body.

To be fair. It is cheaper to raise a kid here than let's say, United States. European countries might be cheaper though, due to good health insurance policy and free education.

The 2nd 'amendment' is not a holy testament written in stone. It sure can be amended again.

@marcelito So take the money from J tax payers and then give that money to J-inc. We are not going to get paid, just like what they did to China.

I think the government should promote this to the companies, not commuters. Because in the end, employees will follow the company rules, not because they saw some jisa biz ad.

Cocky MMA fighters think they can win everything. They’re just jack-of-all-trades master of none. Same thing happened to Conor McGregor. At least he lasted until round 9 before surrendering.

Posted in: Japanese students’ eyesight the worst in recent years; smartphones and mobile games are blamed See in context

Poor eyesight is also in the genes.

I am no researcher but per my observation I think east Asians are more susceptible to myopia.

I rarely see Africans who wear corrective glasses even though they use smartphone as much as the other person.
