Exactly, take away he necktie, shorten the boots to ankle height, (you know where to put the hat) and this photo could look a whole lot better.

Its truly sick and dangerous, morbid and scarry all in one. But schools and teachers have always been known to draw this type of deminted people to the trade. Maybe they start out normal and gradually get overcome various factors in their lives (obviously) and take it out on the nearest and seemingly easiest target. There should be stronger patrols in force, but when even the teachers salaries themselves are cut to the bone, who can think about hiring a force to safeguard the children. Its got to fall on the parents to talk to their kids, stay current with such "news" and tendencies, and work with their children to be aware of potentially dangerous scenerios so the child, as young and trusting and full of life as they are, will at least feel brave to try and thwart a dimented adult from crossing obvious lines of conduct. Maybe the classes should have announcements to the effect, "this announcement is to forewarn our student body (no pun intended) that harassement (sexual, verbal, etc.) is a ZERO tolerant zone in this place of education. JUST SAY NO! And BEWARE. You are not wrong to protect yourself. Don't allow yourself to fall victim. Stand up and fight for your rights! To your beautiful human life now and in the future.

By the way, the above one-way road by the river is almost always under consruction and both sides of the river are used for traffic coming both ways. Sounds confusing I know, but that's exactly what it is. Take what you can get is the attitude while on it. But concerning the other people riding against traffic, it happens on ALL other roads, and especially when you least suspect it (around a turn, at a non-signalled intersection etc.). So I always drive under the speed limit not allowing trouble to suddenly appear. Concerning the Taiji mayor defending the dolphin hunts, he might want to consider saving his elementary school children from eating the mercury-high infested meat......preventing trouble......but maybe not?

We all know the Japanese hate to be pointed out, scrutinized and attacked like that. Their mindset is totally different and not subject to change under heavy pressure.

Simple-minded people if you ask me. (anybody asking?/smile).

But on the other hand they LOVE to tell you about THEIR opinions. "Don't ride your motorcycle against the one way traffic by the river" (a narrow road) on the way to the gym. a man yelled out to me this a.m. in the parking lot after practice. I don't know when he might have seen me doing such a thing, as I go there daily, but I can't count the numbers of times I'Ve almost hit J-people riding on the wrong side of the street against traffic and not giving way as you approach on YOUR bike. Talking about men, women and children on this issue, so they feel instinctively its O.K., maybe essential since yes there are no sidewalks and the roads are too narrow. So I had to laugh when the guy called me out. "O.K. I'll be careful next time Tansaibo Ichiro" I responded.

Posted in: Boy falls onto train tracks while looking at handheld game console See in context

Just being a kid who forgot where he was, is probably the long and short of it. But in Tokyo, a jishin jiko on the Yamanote line at prime time a.m. or p.m. like this influences, take a guess, but I'll bet its more than 20-30,000 people? I was one of those inconvenienced, but thanks to Tokyo's incredible alternatives, hopped quickly to the Toei Asakusa line at Gotanda to Shinbashi to Ginza line to Kudanshita and made my business just on time. With alot more leg work than "ordinary". Still I wonder if more train attendants could be hired by JR (like before), at least in the peak times (a.m. there are plenty, but not after that). Impossible you say? How about a temp staff company. There are lots of construction older people just standing around waving flags, or sweeping floors, or watching for terrorists around Tokyo. Why not more of these people every 15-20 meters of the long platforms? This could have helped children like this one pay more attention, I belivve. Rather than have all the endless announcements "inside" the trains or at the escalators, ("Baby's car are prohibited or don't speed up your walking pace as you approach the doors etc.) how about real people waving flags on the JR the main circle of the JR and give the millions who ride it a greater service? Other ideas? Limboinjapan sounds like good advise too. A smack of reprimand might have avoided this mistep by the 12 year old, who then inconvenienced the masses. Thank God he didn't get seriously injured. How about a fine for falling off the tracks,5,000 yen automatic or something like that? Of course, being pushed would be a 10x steeper fine and time above that.

Yes, for anyone who's tried to up their level of expertise at any discipline, a change of teachers is not unusual. TW with Butch harmon, Hank Haney, and now.... Naysayers always look back to the golden days and say, "he/she should have stayed with A/B/C of the golden days." But life goes on. There are 2nd and 3rd stages of a career.

Himajin good comments. And Yasukuni's comment that It's as if everybody thinks God is watching their every move and will send angels to prevent accidents. Amazing more people aren't hit by cars it pertains to almost ALL facets of life here, when you think about it.

Walk a mile in the man's mocassins. (spelling?). Who among us is without sin let us caste the first stone. I don't believe people are so short on memory as to overlook their own colassole stupid acts while on this earth, only to shoot arrows at a man who gave millions great hope, joy at the marvel of his talent during a spell of downperiod, where yes, he acted stupid, without reprieve. But one's past is simply that. We get a new day each and everyday we're alive, and so does TW. Let's pray for his good nature to once again lead the way in his life. For all his "Badness", he created two children and his first wife will live for ever and a day on his agreed to support earnings. Those are very worthy accomplishments in my book, One sportswriter I've read takes him to task because he broke up his family and left kids fatherless. Its not true. He's still their father. How many father's in this country spend "quality time" with their own children? Most don't have a clue, though they remain married and under one roof. Life is a b...tch. Let's give him a chance. Good luck Tiger Woods! In golf and in your personal life!

TBS drama mini-series contains a trio of superstars, two of which are either gay or leaning heavily towards it. I leave to your imagination who the non-gay is, but its not the baseball player. This type of omission from whats going on in the real world makes this a half-story.

Welcome to Japan. 70 people 2 million yen. Simple math says one time about 60,000 (split down the middle). Expensive, but no shortage of customers 50 X 70 =350 and counting. There are places that charge 10,000-30,000-50,000 etc. This must have had the luxury tax of an additional 10,000 yen for the "underage" deluxe item on it.

"Worked on their marriage a little harder"!? Sorry alladin, any oil in the lamp? TW worked on his mojo to the tune of 18 (some say 80 is closer to reality) full-blown pick-ups. This ain't something that can be "worked on", I'm afraid. Damage is damage. Like a full-blown automobile accident. You just don't piece it together when its totalled. We'll never know whether the trouble preceeded the trouble, but somewhere the nuts and bolts of the "marriage" came loose. Probably between the first and second child as it takes time to accumulate so many. That's what is puzzling. Or is that normal? Whatever. What the public really wants to know is"how much did it cost him financially?" Or in other words, "How much did she get?" Everything else is just so much happenstance. And this is from a TW fan. Its also a lesson to show how quickly a prime athlete can go down the drain, though the speed with which this happened is quite unbelievalble. n other words, he was winning and having the extramaritals, and only when he was discovered did he stop winning. What was going on in his brain? No one will figure it out? No one of the 18 (80) will conflict or tell? Boggles the mind.

Posted in: Companies struggle to deal with workers' Twitter addiction See in context

There's only one way. Ban the use during work. Its a dilemma of our time. People substitute whatever methods of communication with face to face or phone to phone methods of past days. If your going to pay someone, lay down the law. In these days, taking a taxi is prohibited due to rising costs. Put a 9 to 5 ban on twitter and others.......and see how the life of the employee changes.

Yes growing it is a crime, and a very profitable crime at that! I've heard that the people that do grow suddenly have alarming spikes in their electricity bills, like to the tune of 150,000 a month. I'm sure if records were checked, this guys electric bill would be in that neighborhood. Other than that, there's almost no expense, and the turnover is 100 fold or more. And like tobacco smoking, once addicted, the consumer just can't stop, so its an on-going market and on-going cash cow, or in this case cash plant.

Yes, Mike Piazz's bat. I couldn't recall the dudes name at the time of writing. But yes, it was a clear case of roid rage. Nothing compares with it except his beaning Piazza in the head with close to dead heat the previous year. That "message" pitch too, was no accident in my book. And look at Clemens face during now being posted of the time he "testified" before Congress. Talk about trying to lie and get away with it!

Anyone who saw the way he whipped the bat precariously close to Mike S. running to first to force the throw after it broke and rolled benignly to the mound had to think the guy was juiced. Such a reaction never happened before or since, and it was uncontrollabe roid rage, pure and simple. The previous year he beaned the same guy in the head, because he was known to be able to hit RC out of the stadium more than once. The size of his head (both in and out) is very similar to Barry Bonds. This guy is GUILTY as sin. What a BSer to boot. I don't care about his "25 years of service" ha. Multi-Millionaire steroid user who "rejuvenated his career" late in his 30's. Hello?
