@ Ex tanker.

One is small and lethal the other is big and can be lethal.

But if we must compare sizes, then how about removing crocodiles, that would be an awkward task though somewhat different to a bear.

It is sad that they wish to kill the problem rather than remove it. We have extremely venomous snakes here in Australia which can often get into people's properties and houses. The policy is to call a snake catcher who finds, captures and returns the snake to the wild.

It is possible that the snake could return, find another property or even bite a person wandering around, but they are not destroyed here and there are no shortage of snakes in Australia.

No memory of causing the accident and he was three kilometers down the road with the evidence all over his car.... does the no memory escape clause actually work in Japan?

Curious that the brother in law who actually committed the murder got life ina Thai prison in 2016 and she got the death penalty now. I wonder which one got the better deal...

Pocketing any pension may of happened, but it is not mentioned in the article.

Do the Hustle offers another explanation of cold heartiness which would also be a major factor.

Her father died in January and she moved out, then her mother died not long after. Maybe the expense and sadness of her father's death then her mother's was all too much for her so she just walked away and ignored it?

They both had debts to some type of hosting club. Just shows the type of people who would get involved in this type of activity.

Maybe a silly question for this forum, but why was the murdered husband and the wife's surname different?

The whole story has some big gaps and question marks in it. With the information supplied here I would be very reluctant to speculate on what probably happened. There are two sides to every story and the information here is vague at best.

Many UNI students are often on a tight budget, so they were most probably just chowing down on a bit of roadkill.

Statistics released on a previous post about foreign crime in Japan indicated Vietnamese were the highest offenders I recall. So I'm guessing due to statistics that the suspect is probably Vietnamese ;-)

@strangerland lol

Probably but I think there could be a bit more to it... e.g. were they too selfish to not care about the major disruption they will cause, or did they want to cause a major disruption to give themselves some type of notoriety?

If this was suicide and I'm assuming it was can anyone explain to me why so many people decide to do it on a motorway or a train line where they know they will cause a major inconvenience to so many other people

Posted in: Man arrested for stabbing 62-year-old mother to death in Aomori Pref See in context

I appreciate and respect all the comments above and definitely don't sympathize with the offender. But I do know long term unemployment and living off the family being dependant upon them for support is an extremely difficult situation to escape from for many, many people. My son was in a similar situation and trying to get him out of it without overly criticizing him and forcing him into more depression was a precarious situation. Long term unemployment is a mental and attitude illness I feel and criticizing the person worsens the situation which can develop to the state which happened here. I got my son out of this spiral just by constantly letting him know he is good and valued always and thus making him believe in himself again, but it did take quite some time.

Posted in: Cairo named most dangerous megacity for women; London, Tokyo best: poll See in context

I feel this article is quite believable as it is only comparing mega cities with each other of which there is only 31. Most of these mega cities would be in third world countries and therefore culturally it is not such a high beam to be in the top of the list. Of course there would be many better places for women and health around the globe than the winners here but as they are not mega cities they are not included in the comparison.

She certainly has some issues and a few demons appearing from her. Maybe she just needs a bit if a break to sort herself out and regain a proper perspective on life..... maybe that is.

Posted in: Tokyo ranked in third place, behind London and New York, in Global Power City Index 2017 report See in context

Hi everyone, I'm from Australia and find the rankings and commentary very interesting. For Sydney to be in the top ten would also cause an outcry here from people in Melbourne who constantly brag that their city often gets rated the most livable city in the world. So the argument here in Aus is not about Tokyo's rating but how did Sydney beat Melbourne?

This kid is a serious bully and needs to be taken down a few pegs as an example. I have read several other articles here about the bullying culture in Japan schools and by the reports of the other students laughing and cheering as a means of encouragement then that culture does not look like it will go away any time soon.

No problems with polar bears down there, only a few pesky penguins. Of course this could also possibly be some type of clandestine whale reconnaissance.
