the crumbling danchi of East Tokyo.
haha nicely put. Ben leaving in Katsushika-ku for 12 years and loving it! Tateishi area has so much vibe . If you guys are looking to take a trip back to Showa Jidai hit this spot.

It's good that Japan is showing more lenient sentences fro drug use, a step in the right direction. Now let's make sure that it applies to gaijins too!

4 years old is fine without hand holding,
This story proves you wrong. Not sure if you have kids but in my case it's not fine. Anyway just my opinion, not raging.

Forgive me for doubting you, but people regularly claim what they've read elsewhere, and then it turns out they've misinterpreted what they read. It's not that I doubt you specifically, just that people are so often wrong on this site, without supporting links, it's pretty safe to assume that the claims are not correct.

The boy had been accompanied to an area near the intersection by his father but was crossing the lights by himself.

there's nothing here that can logically be used to determine they weren't holding his hand.
The fact that only the kid got hit maybe?

Sure the police is to be blamed 99%.
1% goes to the parents letting a 4 years old crossing the street without holding his hand.
As for Ambulance being slow, you can't drive too fast with a patient in the back... especially if he has IV in his/her arm.

That's too bad because whenever I wanted to smoke outdoor and could not, I used to rush to the nearest elementary school to light up... Damn Japan, you are changing!

But Minke Whales are not.
Let's read the article.
".. the Japanese whalers brought ashore one of their first minke after the resumption of commercial hunting"
Let's read further:
Japan's fisheries agencies has set a quota for commercial whale hunting through December of 227 whales -- 52 minke, 150 Bryde's and 25 sei whales.

and a separate trilogy by "Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson.
No please no no no... Not Rian Johnson...
including a trilogy by David Benioff and D.B
Again no, they are demonstrating that without GRRM original material they can't write characters and logical story lines...
As a fan I want Star wars to rest in peace in our hearts an on bluray. Write original stuff guys!!

Problem with rock music, is that it requires a minimum of music savviness (not as much as jazz or classical of course) but still need the ability to appreciate a nice guitar riff, bass line or drum solo and angry lyrics. Today R&B and mainstream hip hop are on top because it's not disturbing, no message, no soul, only bling and flexing pushed by the media to sell their stuff... But i'm hopeful there always be kids grabbing a guitar or drum stick and readying to rock in their parents' garage! Long live rock n' roll.

Trying not to spoil too much:
Wasn't impressed by the movie, did not have the feel of a Star Wars more like a Guardian of the Galaxy.
Too many plots and too many plot holes... Poor decisions made by all characters, hard to relate or care about them. I guess they are trying hard and succeeding in killing the "old" saga.

This kind of nitpicking and over-reaction to tiny events is why Trump won
He won because of gullible people. I understand he's recently been elected and way too soon to come to any conclusion. BUT when in your 1st month you are more concern about your "victory tour" and what people say about you it's not looking great.

Ok, so now is anyone going to DO anything about the actual problems that exist?
Let Sweden and Swedish people deal with their issues (if you are Swedish go vote for the people representing your views). Here the main issue is not what we do but how we do it. Trump decided to speak before thinking, twisting the truth, calling media fake and his opponents liars. He is making a fool of himself (and USA) every time he tweets, comments, or speaks on TV. He act as a pyromaniac fireman. Creating a fake problem and offering solutions to it when he should be focusing on real issues (unemployment, education, healthcare). I guess he is too busy celebrating his victory to take care if his own people.

It is obvious (and he said on Twitter too) that he was discussing all the problems Sweden is having
No he was not: "“You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,” Trump said."
Last night seems pretty specific to me, not a general situation.
