For goodness' sake they are children! So posters here think they weren't kidnapped because they were enticed by candy? Wake up people please!

Some Japanese women have nice skin but a lot don't! They do heap on so much makeup they have to covering something up ;-)

Everyone said the soccer World Cup wouldn't work in Japan - it was a great success

Agree with seesaw. We pay the taxes so why not?

Davin - you make a good point. She could have just popped to the bathroom. The sill was 120cm (higher than most 4 year olds' height I think)....Ok it's avoidable but an accident none-the-less

I think the mother has been punished enough with the loss of her kid, no? While i can understand (to an extent) why people feel the need to rail at the mother, why is the driver getting no stick for this??

Posted in: In-flight madness with the kids See in context

My kid is well-behaved on planes (though wasn't always the case) and I object when Japanese carriers place us with other families. When he tries to go to sleep he is (along with everyone else) kept awake or disturbed by the racket of several kids screaming altogether. It's annoying but what can you do? Make families stay at home? I'm glad noone has ever told me to "shut that kid up" as I would probably chin them - did that person actually think you wanted your child to make that noise?

USNinJapan2 - I would read that as they knew there was a problem because "they were trying to figure out how..."

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

mirkwood - boarding is down to the airline not the airport. On British Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and many other airlines have always given priority to families with young children. Why don't you take your own stroller? They're allowed in addition to your luggage - I've done several flights with a young child (and luggage!)and had no problem with Narita Airport.

"government is incapable of enforcing laws already on the books, what makes you think anyone is going to be any safer if they deny citizens the ability to protect themselves?"

It wouldn't have made any difference in this case!! Even if everyone carried guns - would they be sitting taking an exam with their guns on their laps? No! That argument (as in so many other cases) just doesn't apply.

I'm sorry but I disagree with you bamboohat. Even if they owned arms they wouldn't be sitting at their desks with their fingers on triggers would they?

To those who think that the people could have defended themselves: they were sitting a test - presumably at desks with no quick access to their belongings....would have made no difference at all if they owned firearms.

Silly question - should be "do you believe that .... is a conspiracy theory". The question reads as if JT believes that all of these are conspiracy theories.

I so don't get this - you have your problems so you kill, or try to kill, someone else? How many crimes in the last few months have been committed and the perp says "I was upset/frustrated/having a bad day/angry about something"....Very scary.

2020hindsight - you work "in finance" and think that's "pretty safe"? I'm curious, as I would think that's one area where jobs are not "safe"...?

Posted in: Three men arrested for robbing drunken salarymen in Tokyo See in context

It's only in recent years in Japan that one has been able to use an ATM outside banking hours - some people probably still have the habit of carryng large sums of cash. Glad the perps were caught.
