Hardly "wild", more like semi-domesticated. The only way to control these beasts would be to introduce cougars into the environment, which of course, could have adverse and unexpected consequences.

Isn't this just a statistical anomaly? If the suicidal people all commited suicide, then statistically there would less suicidal people around, resulting in fewer suicides.

Posted in: Lavrov asks why Japan only country in world that can't accept results of World War II See in context

Cannot believe how uninformed many of the responses are. In fact there are countless cases of unresolved borders throughout the world, many due to colonial powers and the after effects of WW2. The Indo-China border, Indo-Burma border, Thai-Malaysia border are but a few examples. Also why do people only go back to the most recent wars. If you go back far enough, you will see that the whole of the Hokkaido area and these islands belonged to indigenous people until they were "imported" into a "country". The nation state itself has only been around since the 19th centruty so at some point predating this, all these lands belong to someone else. The fact that they have a new owner Russia is just a continuation of what has happened in the past.

Husband sounds totally selfish expecting this poor woman to travel half way around the world every year and forego other trips. Buy an i-phone for god's sake and schedule regular video calls. One trip every 3 years is more than enough!

Natsukawa should stick to points karate tournaments where he can rely on on a hometown decision over the gaijin. On a world stage like this, he will always get exposed. Everyone knows it, but will not admit it.

TigersTokyoDomeDec. 20 02:49 pm JST

Let's face it, the whole tourney is a farce, when you have teams from New Zealand participating at the expense of top Euro squads. They should rearrange like the FA cup and let these third tier Asian and Pacific teams fight it out in the amateur rounds with weekend footballers from England before joining the main draw. People want to see quality, not some watered down PC product, as has happened with the World Cup!

Why is Kashima even in this torunament. They are not even a top 500 club team in the world. Is this due to sponsorship money?

Sounds like he may need a kotatsu and a bottle of shochu rather than thrillers to keep him warm on those long winter nights.

UNESCO is a total political sham. Knew 1 punter whose entire life goal was to visit all the UNESCO sites. Everytime he got close to finishing, they added a few new sites to keep him hooked on his nihilistic Sisyphean mission.

Shocking negligence, though I am surprised his lawyers did not try and invent some sort of Alcohol flush reaction syndrome, and tried a longwided explanation on an accumulation of acetaldehyde, a metabolic byproduct of the catabolic metabolism of alcohol, and is caused by an acetaldehyde dehydrogenase deficiency

Cancel the Olympics for good. They serve no useful purpose, than for a bunch of fatcats to jetset around the world and wine and dine at people's expense, and bankrupting countries, such as happened in Rio, Athens and many more.

The reference to "butt and thighs" is very odd for an article on cultural integration.

Did the possibility of the author simply stating a FACT, without bringing feminism, racism, the Kardashians, etc into discussion occurred to you?"

LOL, funny how the PC brigade always brings up tangential issues, rather than focusing on the crux of the argument.

Alot of nonsense in this article. Japanese has much less vocabulary and a simple grammatical structure compared to French, English etc. The only difficult part is rote memorization of thousands of kanji.
