But Ishibashi's defense team said the defendant cannot be convicted for the crime because there is no legal stipulation on accidents involving vehicles that are no longer moving.

Charge him with manslaughter if he doesn't want to be charged with reckless driving.

The US owes 542mil out of a total of 650mil. Their annual due is 80mil, that means the US haven’t been paying for nearly 7 years and there’s also a possibility of default. How does the US stays the biggest contributor with debts?

somehow i think it's not the cost of producing those medicine that are high. it's those ridiculous profit margins pharmaceutical companies want to make, if the researchers are SELLING the hens to pharmaceutical companies, i don't think the price are coming down.

see what Martin Shkreli is doing to Daraprim, Thiola. I wonder why the governments are allowing those ridiculous price hike. $13.50 to %750 per pill overnight? that's daylight robbery.

Posted in: Japanese car rentals include stickers that read: 'A foreigner is driving' See in context


Yes, i wonder why there are people disagreeing here. I am not offended by the sticker at all, but I think they should provide a correct translation for the sticker since the sticker is for foreign drivers only, shouldn't it be polite to provide an English translation of the Japanese meaning rather than a nonsensical slogan?

This gave me a feeling like seeing some unknowing Asians with huge bold English "Stupid Bxxxx" or something similar emblazoned in front of their T-shirts or vice versa with foreigners wearing Asian worded T's which they clearly have no idea what it meant.

I don't mind slapping this sticker when i drive in japan. But, shouldn't the english translation be "Foreign Drivers" instead of "Heartful friendship in Okinawa" or "Friendly Driving in Hokkaido" ? I can't help but feel like they are taking advantages of foreigners who can't read japanese.

Posted in: Defense minister visits Yasukuni shrine one day after returning from Pearl Harbor See in context

On Wednesday, Masahiro Imamura, the minister in charge of the reconstruction of northern Japan after the massive 2011 tsunami, went to Yasukuni hours after Abe paid tribute in Hawaii.

How many times have the minister in charge of reconstruction visited those pour souls from Fukushima that are still living in shelters after nearly six years?

@commanteer, the victims don't need japan to keep apologizing, they just need to apologize once and stop slapping the victims by visiting the war glorifying and war criminals enshrined yasukuni shrine every now and then.
