 Locals are accustomed to the treatment, but visitors may not be.

"May not be?" I will not be surprised one bit if some of those "pushers" get shoved right back!

If you intend to shove back, be sure to wear white gloves in order to get into the right Cosplay frame of mind.

What are Japanese people doing wrong that is putting so many in hospital and killing so many in normal summer temperatures?

"Overdressing."

You just took the "fun" out of my fundoshi!

I think the big guy's best technique would be to just sit on people. Would work 99.9% of the time.

Am guessing there are some underlying health issues, and more to this story.

In terms of rehydration, there are many effective Oral Rehydration Powders available at pharmacies. Drinking water alone will not replenish sodium and other nutrients lost through sweating and dehydration and can lead to hyponatremia

Something doesn't add up here. Why would these 2 punks go all the way to a 3rd world country to jack a car in the middle of nowhere, while planning heist. More likely a yakuza inside job, or maybe a drug deal gone wrong. The journos need to dig a bit deeper here as something is clearly amiss.

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.
