Posted in: Ghosn's wife says she wasn't in the loop about his escape See in context

Airport security rules meant large items loaded onto private planes were exempt from screening -- a loophole that appears to have allowed Ghosn to escape unnoticed.

SMH....And they never saw this as a problem??

Posted in: Japan to make automatic brakes mandatory for new cars from Nov 2021 See in context

If you are mistaking the accelerator for brakes, you shouldn't be driving.

If you are "stomping" on the brakes or the accelerator, you shouldn't be driving.

If you depend on technology to stop you from running into walls with your car, you shouldn't be driving.

@Numan

Totally agree. Actually this is not even new news; I have known this for years. Women just use men for their needs at the time. For some women, every male "friendship" is a business deal.

@oldman_13

First of all, it wasn't funny. A joke is suppose to be funny. This was offensive and totally in poor taste. Secondly, comedians don't make jokes about people of color needing bleach or being sun burnt. If this is the best these two can do to "entertain" people, then they need to find another job.

I totally agree, especially when cyclist ride against traffic. I have no clue why they do this.

When I think about the years that have passed, I just can't stop asking myself why Yukari is still missing.

Maybe because your dumb a** husband took her to a pachinko palor and forgot about her while he gambled life away. I would be really stunned if she is still married to him

ayayay....again. How much more dumbed down and stupid proof do we have to make our cars? I think we need to bring back manual transmissions and require older people to be able to drive them.

Posted in: Tokyo court orders car owner to pay NHK fee See in context

This is ROBBERY! When I buy a TV or a Nav for my car, I don't actively subscribe to NHK so why the hell should I pay for it? Thats like me saying, I charge people to speak to me, so every time you say something to me, you have to pay me.

You can't just charge people who didn't ask for your services. NHK needs make themselves a proper cable tv provider like Wowow or Star TV and provide services to those who WANT to subscribe.

Every time NHK tries to collect from me, I simply tell them, " hey, I don't know you. Your just some old dude in a hard hat, who shows up to my house soliciting money for services that I never purchased. If you wan't me to pay for this, do what the other services providers do. Send me a proper bill with my name and contract number printed on it, and I will happily pay it. Until then, stop harassing me by asking for money for something I never subscribed to"

If your view is obstructed, you should be driving at very slow speed...basic driving law.

Intellectually disabled? Why is she even having children, let alone being left alone with a child. So many issues at so many levels.

Those bars aren't made of steel. Many are made of bamboo or plastic and are design so that they can easily be raised or break away. I completely don't understand why this man did this?? Is he suffering from dementia or is he a bit touched??

Posted in: 11-year-old boy falls to death from 4th-floor apartment See in context

I can see how this happened. Perhaps he locked himself out of his house and tried to scale up the balcony. Being a latch key kid, I have done this as well, but we lived on the second floor. At age 11, you don't quite understand your own mortality and think you could do anything.

Toy boata sucks! Why don't they ever build their own performance engines. They all built by Yamaha, Subaru, and now BMW, which begs the question, why should I get a Toy boata, when I can get a BWM Z4 if its goingo to have the same engine???
