Posted in: Efforts continue to achieve hanged killer's final wish See in context

I'm all for capital punishment.

once you have chosen to take someone's life or lives..

no matter how bleak or desperate your own situation is.

you the killer should face his or her own consequences.

if not, who should pay for the lives of those innocent victims who were killed nonsensically just because your own situation is TOO bleak and pathetic.

unless schools in fukuoka starts really late.

on a weekday, elementary kids usually would be up and starting their day by 630am or 7am...

the dad claims that his wife and kids were still sleeping by 7am when he left for work...

and he didnt even think of waking his kids up for school?

Posted in: Maternity clinic in Nagano sparks debate over sperm donation controversy See in context

In addition, many couples he works with actively seek to use the sperm of a close family member to secure a blood connection and inherit genes from the father’s side of the family. *

they are missing the point that daddy's infertility genes might had actually been passed down from the father-in-law himself.. so why use that same faulty genes to create a baby?

this is just gross in all ways...

Posted in: How would you rate Narita airport when compared to other major airports around the world? See in context

Overall the service is so so... Not very fantastic. I was travelling with my 5month old baby & would like to loan a baby troller. Everywhere i asked, they dont have it. They make me walk from this information counter to the other counters to ask for one while carrying my baby. In the end, i gave up & just walk straight to the departure gate. No piority boarding too! Although i'm with an infant. So... nothing fantastic about their service in this airport.

Posted in: Body of newborn infant found floating in sea in Okinawa See in context

I wonder if the baby was already dead before ending up in the ocean. I wonder if the girl was raped. I wonder if she was overweight and didn't know she was pregnant (a few cases of that with adults). I wonder if the child was a result of an affair and husband didn't know about it. I wonder if the child would have been aborted at a hospital but the pregnancy was too far along to be done. There are a lot of questions. We shouldn't jump the conclusions until the facts come in. I think this is extreemly rare.

Even if the mother of the child did have any of the reasons as stated above, she doesnt have the right to dump the baby into the sea. Thats an act of MURDER. No matter how unwanted the baby is, at least the mother should be humane enough to bring the live baby to Akachan Post or find a foster parent for her or at least do the right thing to abort it when she had the chance to.

Bottomline.. They are just not good enough. Who wants to listen to manufactured popbands who cant sing live in tune or boybands looking so girlish or havent gone thru puberty?
