Western European countries have invaded and colonized lots of other countries in fairly recent history. Yet no ones' going to complain if you dress up in a traditional red coat costume or wear a crusaders cross on your t'shirt.

I'm not sure why they need high voltage for deers. I know with cows it's possible to use a low 12V, just hang a few cans along the fence and when they touch it with their wet nose, it gives them a small tingle and they learn to stay away.

Posted in: Driver who killed cyclist in crosswalk accident found not guilty See in context

In Australia if you're a car driver and your approaching a zebra crossing (without traffic lights), you're required to reduce speed and cover your brakes. If you see a pedestrian waiting at the curb (at a zebra crossing), you're required to stop and let them cross.

With this approach the pedestrian doesn't need to step into the path of an oncoming vehicle and hope they stop.

I don't understand why they have to spend so much money on the Olympics. Don't we already have some stadiums, they can borrow for a few days?

I bet the stress from this court case has reduced the life expectancy of the parents. They should launch a counter suit for those lost years.

Bikes are seriously out of control in Japan. Even at pedestrian crossings right outside of a kindergarten, the cars stop when they see the red light, but the flood of bikes (people racing to get to work) doesn't stop.

They ride in both directions on both sides of the road and the footpath as well.

The other day I hailed a cab, and my wife and kid had to wait for a break in the traffic ("bicycle traffic" on the footpath) before they could cross the footpath. That's insane.

Back home it's illegal for bikes to ride on the sidewalk. You will get an on-the-spot fine if you're caught.

I sometimes see Japanese police cars driving casually down the street with their lights flashing for no immediate reason. They just drive around with them on permanently.

The sad thing about this is, that it's probably going to happen again tomorrow to another little child. Then again the day after and so forth. The government should introduce an education program to teach parents that it's not okay to beat their kids, or leave them in the car while they spend six hours at the pachinko parlor.
