Posted in: Princess Aiko has pneumonia, agency says See in context

Umm, NO!!! I do believe that tmarie suggested that the little princess needed to be slapped about the had,just like tmarie's mother had done,and then sent to school. That's pretty heartless to me, and I grew up getting "smacked around" myself although, I'm guessing/hoping in a different manner than you. My youngest daughter has two older sisters and was exposed to other children, which is how she got MRSA....I don't wish that on anyone, watching your child suffer, having to take med that's used to treat anthrax exposure, not knowing if she's gonna make it......yeah, I'm glad she has a caring mother. Get well, Princess

Hmmm, maybe the boys at the school acted like a lot of the Japanese men....groping, morphing images, taking pics up girls required sailor uniform skirts....if some of the people who've posted evil comments on here had children in the little girls class, I could easily see something mean happening to her.

I've got to agree with you Hategobo, not sure how it was an attempt when the mother is in fact, dead. Dare I say, only in Nihon/Nippon.

Posted in: Kindergarten bus driver held over girl's death See in context

I'm disabled and at one time had a 6,2, newborn daughters all at the same time. But somehow, I've manged to make sure that none of them were ever underneath a moving vehicle. I am sure that the mother feels absolutely horrible, I know that I don't think I would be able to live knowing my child died because of my negligence. The bus driver, regardless of age should not receive any kind of punishment; who in their right mind would think that a child would be crawling underneath the bus, when the mother is right there.

Who did they give the money they've already dispersed to? From everything I've been reading, it's a lot of people evacuated and the govt isn't helping them.

Posted in: Woman dies after beating administered by son, provoked by incontinence incident See in context

My father died a month and two days ago; I tried to take care of medical decisions since 2005. My dad was an abusive ass and I was removed from my house as a teen, but as a parent it is my job to teach my own children how to behave. I couldn't very well tell them to treat others like they would want to be treated, if I didn't behave that way. It got to the point where I couldn't stand to be around him. I had to quit talking to him, because he was going to do what he wanted to do anyway......but I didn't kill him. So my children learned that they really should treat other's like they would want to be treated.

Woman prostitutes daughter to 72-year-old man for years before discovery CRIME OCT. 05, 2011 - 10:06AM JST ( 66 )NAGANO — A 45-year-old woman has been arrested for prostituting her underage daughter to a 72-year-old man in Nagano, police said Tuesday.

According to police, the woman took her daughter to a hotel where the “transactions” took place. NTV reported that the woman is believed to have received 20,000-30,000 yen each time. Although her current age is unclear, the girl is believed to have been a pre-teen or teenager when she was first sold to the man.

It is believed the pair met several years ago through a mutual acquaintance, following which the woman entered into a sexual relationship with the man herself, NTV reported.

The crime was discovered after a tip-off came from the girl’s school. Police said the woman had been selling her daughter to the man for sex for several years.

Okay, so maybe the facts in this story aren't true...who knows. But, I do know that there was a story in the crime section last week that was similar to this, the girl was going to "juvie".

My question is, what have they done to make any of the other reactors safer? I've not heard anything about that, and obviously an earthquake or tsunami isn't limited to Fukushima.

Posted in: Japan's ear-cleaning salons offer childhood fantasy See in context

I'm a mother who still cleans my children's ears (10- 17), and I clean my husbands ears. It is something that my mother always did, and my grandmother did to her. However, it was because my mom's parents are deaf and they always wanted to make show my mother can hear. I have them lay their heads on a pillow (which is NOT on my lap). Now that my kids are older, I only clean their ears when they ask me to; I feel I should add that all of us girls (my daughters & I ) have REALLY bad allergies & it helps to relieve some of the pressure. I don't use any magical ear scraping tool, I put a few drops of peroxide in each ear & use a q-tip to clean the wax that comes out. I'm Louisiana Creole (French, African, Native American & Irish), but I was diagnosed with Asian form of MS & studied in Japan, so who knows I could be part Japanese.

First of all, I don't believe TEPCO about how much radiation this man was exposed to. Second, a 46 yr old man dies from leukemia and they don't think it has anything to do with his exposure to radiation,REALLY??? After all of the lies TEPCO has been telling, and that's the best they could come up with. I'm pretty sure that the protagonist in the book about the 1,000 cranes died from leukemia too.

MasterHu---I went to the site that you suggested....it does say it's possible to want to orgasm, but because it physically feels good to your body and that one's body is wired for that. But it also says REPEATEDLY, that just because your body physically enjoyed it, it doesn't mean that the VICTIM enjoyed the fact that they were being abused.

My dad died two weeks ago yesterday....and no shit, I found out on my brand new iPad 2. Well, technically the FB message said, "I just heard, I'm so sorry." I found out for sure after I called my friend, who is a first responder & heard the call go over the radio while he was working another call.

It seems like everytime I read JT, some poor child has been injured/killed by the person/people who are supposed to take care of them....although if the monk really needed to perform an exorcism, then it should've been performed on the crazy nurse who was pulling patients nails out....I'm just sayin'

Posted in: Gaijin -- just a word or racial epithet with sinister implications? See in context

I had little kids say gaijin when they saw me, didn't bother me & it wasn't the same feeling as being called the N-word, I know because I've been called that more times than I can count. I actually refer to myself as having been the Jolly Black Giant (a reference to the Green Giant, used by brand of same name in America). I knew it wasn't common for the people around me to see a black person (African American) and seeing as how I was much taller than even my host father, how could I not expect some kind of reaction. After all, when my pale white,redheaded husband and I go to some places in our own country we've been treated rudely. I guess we have a somewhat twisted sense of humor because we make our own jokes about these situations. I am less bothered by being called a gaijin, than I am by all the people in my own country who have said: I don't see color. Okay, well I find that odd because I definitely notice that I have an awesome, non-cancer causing tan whenever I look at myself.

Good Bad JapanGalSEP. 08, 2011 - 12:25PM JST As the generous American Military sits humbly on the side lines.

Umm, the US military did help when the conditions were somewhat safe.....and the US military didn't build a bunch of nuclear plants in a place that is , palgued by earthquake, tsunamis, typhoons, occasionally volanoes......while the US military has done a lot of shady things, this is one thing they didn't cause.

Lilith, I am so sorry for your loss. I really appreciate you posting your daughter's words, I have frequently thought the same things as she did.

This "theme park" idea is HORRIBLE! I hope that its just a joke, because I can't imagine any sane person allowing their child to go there.

Is it just me, or have there been a lot of crazy people in JT stories lately? We've got this guy, the man they suspect of placing the body parts in the trash can, the man who killed his wife & then offed himself by jumping out the window, the foster mom who is a star but killed her foster daughter....and these are all stories from the past week.

Why a park.....can we say,"to frame him." If he felt so guilty that he wanted his crime to be known, why not just call the police?

I love Japan, but realized long ago that I am way too American to live there. Although with the increased crime, radioactive food, and governmental denial of said things I would probably feel right at home now, lol.

How on earth is Canada rated with those others for high-risk? Aside from extreme colds, ice-storms, and a few tornadoes the place seems to be quite stable. True, there's high risk for the West coast if the San Andreas fault line has a major quake, but beyond that... ?

Anyway, Japan gets it all -- typhoons, tsunami, earthquakes, volcanoes... Scary when you think about it.

At least Japan doesn't have tornadoes too
