Posted in: 68-yr-old woman killed in hit-and-run at pedestrian crossing in Yamanashi See in context

Saw a semi-trailer truck hit a K-car head on during the snowstorms in Kansai. The car had its front end almost ripped off, but luckily the driver inside was fine. The truck had pulled into the opposing lane of traffic to get past a stalled car and it was totally the truck driver's fault, so he just kept on driving after the totalling the car.

Actually, it was kind of amazing that he could keep momentum while going uphill, during a snowstorm, after a head-on collision. Watch out for those trucks, many of them do not care at all for other drivers and their cars.

When I'm 71, I hope to have the strength to beat my 32-year old son to death. Not saying that I will do it, it's just nice to be able to.

There are many documented cases of toddlers and children falling several stories without injury, yet this poor baby drops 70cm and cracks his head open. Life is random.

And for baby bed designers: how bout putting some guards around the edges?

YAY!! Every time I went to Tokyo, the first place I went to fill up after the long bus ride was BK. It tastes better than McDonald's, possibly cuz I miss that true barbecued meat smell.

And for all the haters out there, if you don't like it just don't patronize them. Everybody makes a choice of what they put into their own bodies and how much they exercise.

Anyways, Japanese food isn't all that healthy either, mayo on everything anybody? How about pork fat and loads of salt in ramen? A bowl of empty calorie rice?

Only when the US stops the war on drugs and (heaven forbid) admits that prohibition is impossible will Latin America be free of this scourge.

That's a little oversimplistic in regards to this situation. The Zetas are operating with a paramilitary mindset and their objectives are both to dominate the international drug trade around that region and to cow the authorities through terror tactics. They started a new front in the war on rivals (not drugs) and will not stop until their enemies or themselves are exterminated.

Posted in: How one Japanese village defied the tsunami See in context

wanderlust at 08:55 AM JST - 16th May An example of the Japanese concrete coastline, while it saved the village, it just doesn't get much uglier than this. Looks like they'll soon be proposing a 20m concrete wall around the whole of Japan, to keep the tsunamis out.

sengoku38 at 09:34 AM JST - 16th May At the same time, you have to learn to live with nature, not just dominate by building huge concrete walls everywhere.

One gets the feeling that these people are the kind who don't wear seatbelts because it makes them uncomfortable.

Posted in: Sony unveils tablet to compete with Apple offerings See in context

Do you also get the feeling that this product is already a failure before Sony launches it? I don't want to bash Sony, if only because I want them to keep on producing Playstations for a long time, but their strategies need to be rethought from scratch. Proprietary formats and inflexible IP protection schemes are strangling any advantages they get through hardware innovations, which leaves them playing catch-up with other electronics companies who don't have such a handicap.

Plus, if one looks back 10 years from now, this period of time might possibly be the beginning of the end for the company. Think about it: Japan's pre-existing economic problems, exacerbated by the disasters, their electronics divisions slowly being eaten by better competition, and now a profit center (PSN) is being threatened along with the hardware PS3.

Remember Atari. Remember Sega.

Time for some further relocation. I know I'd be trying to hitch rides down south closer if I found out about the much better conditions that evacuees are living in near Tokyo. Why stay when all of one's belongings are ruined anyways?

If the tsunami had been bigger, the mess they have up there would have been dragged into the ocean, then the clean up would have been much easier.

Right, and then Japan (plus neighbors) would have to deal with a sea-mobile Chernobyl.

This could be an opportunity for invention: robots that could withstand high radiation levels and could do the job of decontamination much better than humans. Sounds like a Japanese manga already!

Microsoft attacks Google over security

Didn't Micro$oft just release their biggest patch to Windows ever? Fixing around 46 known security flaws that affect ALL versions of their operating systems.. Kinda hypocritical to complain about security when they have none!
