The government obviously has to do their fair share in helping a behemoth like Mitsubishi recover all that money they lost in the first half. It's only the right thing to do, folks.

Good on them to not back down and to let DT know that he was a fortunate son of but unfortunately you can't always get what you want. I say hallelujah for that.

Sorry to kill the hype.
It seems that the guy didn't notice the bike... Some meters after the passenger told him that he felt something, and they tried to get back.
There was no intention to run away, they honestly didn't see the bike.
If you can't see (or feel) that you have hit a motor vehicle which just happened to be carrying two adult human beings, you have some major problems and should never again be allowed behind the wheel of anything, not even a Big Wheel.
You're correct in that he didn't intend to run away only because he DID run away.

Cali's teams have gotten the best of Florida's twice in the past 3 weeks now. Having lived in both states but definitely not a fan of either team, I'll say I'm glad the Dodgers won because I like California a whole lot more.

Charlie Hebdo really seems to like starting trouble. It's one thing to ridicule Erdogan but why always bringing in something about the Prophet Muhammad? You get what you ask for so don't be surprised by the reaction or what may follow. You are asking for it.

Lewis doesn't need Stewart's endorsement to cement his legacy. Jackie Stewart is free to feel how he wants to feel but he is not the sole authority on who is the GOAT. He cannot include himself though because he isn't close to the record. Look, Tom Brady has 6 Super Bowl wins but he has also lost three. Still the GOAT to me. Joe Montana is right there but TB getting to more Super Bowls than the majority of NFL teams, many of which have been around over 60 years says something and I hate the Patriots. LeBron is only 4-6 in Finals but still - 17 years and 3 different championship teams says something. They all have one ingredient that many lack - consistency. Year in, year out, they cannot be counted out, especially with it being over an extended period of time. Lewis is deserving of the accolades.

Another jerk in the news. A serial road rage jerk on a bike. No shortage of either in Japan, nor in the world for that matter.

¥54m is a lot of cash in three years.
I'm Taylor Swift, by the way.
You should contact the father in the story and get whatever cash he has left because you are actually related! His name is Not Too Swift

Go woke, go broke
All the crybabies boycotting because of BLM or whatever can get lost. No one will miss them. The NBA ratings tanked for a variety of reasons - election year cable TV watching, COVID, Finals out of season, etc. Same losers boycotted the NFL a few years ago and nothing came of it. Some think they can control everything but they can't. Waaa.

I would love to work in japan, but am told only native Japanese speaking jobs available, and from what I have read not many of the workers from Asia speak it either.
I don't know where you live and maybe you have heard nothing but good things about working here but you may be better off where you are now. On the surface, Japan may seem like an ideal destination but many companies exploit workers, force you to do unpaid overtime and generally treat you like chattel.

I am embarrassed Japanese people jump to foreign traditional events without thoughts. What are we?
Not a clue as to what you are but maybe it's time to cancel the Olympics, Paralympics, Koshien, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, eating Western food, etc so give back tempura to its rightful owner and undo a whole host of other things that should save you from being so embarrassed. Although it's not a traditional event, I think a good start might be to stop writing about Western events on English web sites in romaji.

People like poster JohnSmith seem to think they know more than the experts and that is exactly why this second wave is going to be worse than the first. Some would rather see millions die than take standard preventative measures.

"I know someone who used to be a doctor. The blood coming from your forehead isn't flowing that fast and your head injuries don't look too serious so I'm not going to stick around for the ambulance or the cops. Take it easy and even if you have the right of way, be good boys stay out of intersections, OK? That way you might live long enough to be an old coot scofflaw like me. Catch you later."

I am all for sending the troops home then all the whiners and people who cherry pick crime statistics or point fingers when any transgression happens can shut the bleep up. If that does happen, one thing that won't is that money Japan didn't use on supporting the troops won't be going to support Okinawa or any of the places that had bases. You heard it here first.

@Badman -What you wrote about the video cannot be ascertained from the reading. Just look at the comments near the end of the story. The article also doesn't say whether it was a homemade video or one on a website and it doesn't detract from my point that the cop didn't have to transfer it. He could have used his phone to take a picture or a video of what he was viewing on the other phone among other alternatives. Strange? Maybe, but no one would have been the wiser.

@Strangerland - My point was he DID NOT NEED TO SEND the videos or photos and leave irrefutable evidence. He could have just used his own phone to take a photo or video of what was on the suspect's phone or gotten the site information, title, URL, or whatever without anyone knowing and gone home. There would be no transfer data so what he did would not have been found out by the suspect. As a case in point, I often use my smartphone camera to take a picture of a picture or of information that is on my old flip phone. No data transfer.
