People are so careless here. I just had a go at the police the other night for giving ME a warning, when a woman ran right in front of my car (while moving). No common sense.

Posted in: Marijuana tops paint thinner as most abused substance in Japan See in context

So legalize it already!!!! Wake up to the 21st century JAPAN!!!!

with some believing marijuana is less harmful than other types of drugs.

This is such an absurd statement! Marijuana IS less harmful. Do you honestly believe that its just as harmful than snorting PAINT THINNER?? And the stupid thing is that the more dangerous chemical is legal!

and just wanted to kill someone so he could go to prison and get away from his workplace. He also said he was in debt.

So, essentially the (non) justice system just gave this lazy bum exactly what he wanted - a way out of a miserable pathetic life so that he can mooch off tax payers and waste away in prison...nice! And in 23 years, he can kill another person so he get another lenient sentence.

It times like this, I believe that the death penalty is not such a bad idea.

I certainly hope that the DOT doesn't overreact to this nutter's stabbings by 'airportizing' shinkansen stations. Its already a major pain in the rump to fly, it would be really bad to make taking the train just as painful.

If guns are banned then incels and other nutters turn to knives.

I'm pretty sure that if he had a gun, MANY more people would have died. Not even a viable argument so don't even start.

Exactly what I was going to say...they're all rigged!! The springs in the claw are so weak, they probably wouldn't be able to hold a feather. If you're going to imprison this guy, you've got to imprison all arcade operators!

Posted in: Mother backing car out of garage hits and kills 2-year-old son See in context


I couldn't agree with you more. Common sense doesn't seem to exist with women on bikes or in cars. Who in their right minds think its safe to ride a bike with one kid on the front, another kid on the back, and yet another kid strapped to the mother's chest or back, all while toting an umbrella? I see it all the freakin' time. Really? One wrong move and the entire family is wiped out. And don't even get me started about obeying BASIC traffic laws, because most of them seem to think that none of them apply to them. I don't know how many times these people have endangered my life, my child's life, and the lives of other people on the road, because they'd ignored a traffic light, or riding on the wrong side of the road against traffic, or swerved right in front of me...etc...ugh!! It's maddening!!!!

2 seconds, is all it takes to make sure that NOTHING is behind the car when backing out. Better yet, as I said above, either put the kid in the car first, or leave him in the house until you've moved the car in a better position to get him in.

Put the child IN the car in a child seat where he belongs, BEFORE moving the car. Not too hard to figure out!

If the child was being disruptive, I don't see this as such a bad thing to do. What was the teacher expected to do? Let the child do what he wants and interrupt the other children's right to learn?

And the police? Really? Such a huge over reaction to a small problem.

Posted in: Associates shocked at arrest of suspect in 7-year-old girl's murder See in context

I find that most Japanese people go out of their way to avoid their neighbors. They couldn't tell you the family names of the neighbors on either side of their own home.

My neighborhood is really old school Japan. Everyone pretty much know each other. greet each other, share fruits and vegetables and other foods, etc. It took me a while to get use to it, because as I child, I always had the "don't accept gifts from strangers" thing ingrained in me.

My daughter also occasionally receives candy and other gifts from our neighbors, and my first instinct is to tell her to them "no thank you", but exchanging gifts is really old school Japan culture, and to go against the grain makes you look like an ass....

So, its kind of hard to want your family to be safe while maintaining a good relationship with other and to not offend them. But with that said, its these kinds of incidents that make one wonder if there are any monsters living near by who are looking to hurt your kid.

At least they're better than the AKB bunch. Having said that, why not use an entertainer who has a more international following. Tokio has a very small international presence, no one will know who they are. Hikaru Utada, DCT, Namie Amuro, and other entertainers, who can sing in English and Japanese would be a better choice.

Posted in: Japan's 3 megabanks consider operating ATMs jointly See in context

Such a stupid move. First of all, it took several years for Mitsubishi-Tokyo and UFJ to combine their ATMs and that was several years after their merger. Aside from the bank being labeled MUFJ bank if you had a Tokyo Mitsubishi bank card or a UFJ card, they wouldn't work depending on which company's ATM you were using. I could see a similar thing happening.

Secondly, cash isn't going out of style anytime soon. There are still SEVERAL places that won't accept credit cards so there is still a need for ATMs. The smart move would be reduce or get rid of service charges, and make it possible for more international banks to use these ATMs.

Posted in: High court rejects man's call over paternity of child born by IVF See in context

I am not sure if I am getting this story correct, so bear with me.

I seem to recall a while back when a couple had a child, and later found out that the child was not biologically related to the father. I don't remember if the wife had cheated on him or what exactly happened, but the husband asked for a divorce and understandably didn't want financial responsible for raising the child.

HOWEVER, due to the backwards thinking of the residing judge and the archaic Japanese laws, he was told that he was financially responsible for raising that child BECAUSE he was married to the mother at the time of conception.

SO, under this stupid law, this woman could go out and have babies by as many men as she wants, and regardless of whether the kid is his or not, he is STILL obligated to financially care for this kid. SO stupid...how is this even fair?

Posted in: Junior high school boy threatens elementary school over Armani uniforms See in context

Kids these days. If you want your own set or Armani uniforms, why don't you go buy one for yourself?

Although I don't condone violence and threats, his point is correct. If this was a private school, then fine, have at it...wear your fancy Armani uniforms. But this is a public school. Parents should not have to shell out (I think it was something like 40,000 jpy) for PUBLIC school uniforms, just because the principal thinks they look cool, and cut some kind of back room with an Armani supplier. Public school uniforms should be affordable for all income levels and should NEVER be ostentatious.
