Lol @ the 300 meter car chase... It didn't mention whether or not he himself was in the car at the time of the chase...

Yeah, I would like one of you to tell me that you've never jumped on furniture, much less beds, as a kid. Get off your high horse and recognize this as a simple freak accident.

I believe extinct mammoths and neanderthals are extinct for a good reason.

Let's see whom we currently blame for those... Oh, that's right! Humans! Is it not fine to bring back what we ourselves brought destruction to?

Uh, this story provides almost no information so we go with rampant speculation.

Yeah, but that seems to be the pastime of people on this site. Nothing new.

Posted in: Mother turns herself in, saying she killed her 8-yr-old son See in context

I see that some may blame children for driving their parents off the deep end. And then I see people blaming the parents for not teaching their children to behave correctly.

Where is the point that the parent is taught how to teach a child correctly? How many parents have been through life with at least one younger sibling, or any siblings at all to learn from? How many of their parents offered help or support?

What I am trying to say is that it is an issue of society. Without a basis on family support, it will turn out for the worst. This poor family probably was on the bad end of several bad relationships where this support and learning was not available.

Posted in: The flip side of metabolic syndrome - being too skinny See in context

I found that many girls in Japan are obsessed with the gap between their legs that result from very little fat and muscle. It starts to look quite bad when that gap looks like it's wide enough to fit another one of their stick legs.

They need to promote a healthy look instead.

Posted in: Man fatally stabbed at Mie residence See in context

I've "walked around with a knife" for 40+ years. Wonderful almost-all-purpose tool and, in a pinch, potential defensive weapon. Everybody should carry one, even if it's only one of those little Swiss Army Knives with the built-in sissors and toothpick. A knife and a means of producing fire are the original basic survival tools and still serve well today. Never be without them.

Any knife long enough to be so useful as that is illegal in Japan.

Even if a device was not made to create heat, many battery operated machines can create a fire in a contained space. Better to just put the batteries in another container.

Posted in: Japan's food culture is an endangered species See in context

This is similar to the oil sufficiency of the US, and asking Americans to stop driving cars. Yeah good luck with that. At least Japan here has an excuse - there's simply not much land and you can't ask people to stop eating like you can ask them to stop burning millions of barrels of oil.

I failed to see any excuse... Oil is necessary in modern America. There is no way around it other than being shot back to the iron age.

They aren't asking Japan to stop eating. They are asking them to limit the eating of certain things, especially those of which cannot maintain a healthy population.

Posted in: 2-year-old girl dies in Kawasaki apartment fire See in context

The girl’s father Takayuki, 22, and his second son, 4, suffered from smoke inhalation and are in a serious condition in hospital, police said Wednesday morning.

Seriously, how many responses can I count that said something stupid along the lines of "how can you leave your child home alone?". Unless this article was updated with new info, I find it rather strange that the father would have suffered from smoke inhalation SOMEWHERE ELSE while the children are suffering home alone...

Now.... where were the guardians that allowed this tomfoolery to go on to begin with?

Stop blaming every incident on parents. Kids have the ability to walk home in Japan with no problem. And there is nothing wrong with that. This was just an unfortunate incident.

It is still good to know that even a 10 year old boy knows how to be a hero even when his life is in danger. May he be remembered.

This is an unfortunate example of a misunderstanding being acted upon too hastily. If he had given the officer even 10 seconds to give a 10 word explanation, none of this would have happened.

Posted in: New film has Japan vets confessing to Nanjing rape, massacre See in context

I don't understand why people are still digging up a past that has already been dug up, dusted, and polished. Give it about 20 more years and all those involved will either be dead or too old to care and this will become another sad statistic in the numerous shortcomings of humanity. This is not the last time we'll see an event like this.

Posted in: What are the pros and cons of living together with someone before you marry that person? See in context

If a couple live together before marriage, they often quite happy together. They get to know the other in a fun way where it's all giggles and play. This is the problem.

After marriage, many people subconsciously expect things to get better or change in some kind of way. And it doesn't. You are the same two people and you two will eventually wake up from the honeymoon dream that you were in. This often ends up making the marriage disappointing and results in stupid arguments.

Posted in: Bare statistics mask human cost of Japan’s high suicide rate See in context

As for the adage -- it's not a philosophy -- "the nail that sticks up, gets hammered down," what does an expression of social pressure to conform have to do with romanticized notions of suicide as a legitimate way out of difficulties?

Do you not realize that is what the entire article was explaining? People not being able to live life because they have to conform. Those who cannot deal with this loss of "life" commit suicide instead of living life without "life".

As for the adage -- it's not a philosophy -- "the nail that sticks up, gets hammered down,"

This IS a philosophy. It deals with the "problem" of people not conforming to the ideals of the group oriented mindset of the "Japanese way." Because this directly interferes with one's desire to commit to their individual desires, it often develops into a strong depression.

It's not the fact that it's a girl that shocks me. Not even the fact that the victim was beheaded shocks me; it is that it is 2010, we are massively technologically advanced yet we still kill each other. Can we fix what we humans are?

Humans will always be humans.

Has suicide been ruled out? I mean according to the desperate living conditions described anything is possible?

It's rather difficult to stab one's self and then drag yourself to the pool to die. I'd say it's ruled out.

Posted in: Nintendo to release DS game console in 3-D See in context

Another DS? Do we really need another DS? Need to work on a new console or at least third party games. My first DS works just fine. No need for another one.

Why make something else when the first item is still at the top of the market? DS has room to grow still and I hope this 3-D thing sounds as good as it is.

Will this thing be unplayable for the visually impaired, or will there be some way to show both sets of pixels to the same eye? I'd hate for 3D-only to become the new standard. The perfect-eyesight people don't seem to be clamoring for it, and those without would be frozen out of one of their favorite hobbies.

It'd be the same as in real life. Depth perception will be mostly lost but everything should still be as clear. I don't see where the problem lies... Unless they use the actual 3D mechanic in the game as part of the game...

Ugh, James Cameron has a lot to answer for. I hate 3D.

Real life must suck for you. 3-D things everywhere!

Alright... so when did he try snatching the bag? This IS supposed to be a robbery attempt, right?

That's what I was thinking. They say it was attempted robbery, but they do not really place a point in the sequence of events for the actual robbery.

Gurukun, with your logic, I hope you do not get into the justice system.

I don't want a wii imitation to replace my wii controller... It looks the same (maybe a little worse), acts the same (should work as good if not better), but what is special about it?

I think Microsoft has a good idea entering into the motion market with their Project Natal.

Posted in: Some wives wish their husbands would hurry up and drop dead. See in context

A Tokyo divorce lawyer the magazine talks to speaks of women who come in asking, “Is there a legal way to make a husband vanish?”

There may be, in fact. Article 30 of the Civil Code says that if a husband has not been heard from in seven years and it cannot be determined whether he is alive or dead, the wife can obtain an appropriate declaration to that effect, which frees her to take possession of her husband’s property, and to remarry if she has a mind to.

Does this go both ways, or is it only women who are given the incentive to commit the perfect murder?
