Suwanose Jima has been going off for years, centuries actually. It's a very active volcano - the most active in Japan. I was down there in 2009 and it was going off then.

As a Brit I am ashamed that this moron has Americanized us.
Give him the full prison sentence and the full fine and then kick him out - pikey!

I’m all for LGBT rights. But even if same sex marriage is legal here, it’s still pretty hard to start a family. The dynamics in the bedroom just don’t really work on a biological level and adoption is a long drawn out process that can also be quite costly and the other options are astronomically more.
Although maybe drawn out, it seems to work fine for heterosexual couples who cannot have children on a "biological level".
Good luck to these two and Al other same sex couples. Very much hope they are allowed equality to the rights that heterosexual couples enjoy.

Who says he was confused? Probably just a tragic compound of mistakes. I don't think age necessarily has anything to do with it. Plenty of very skilled older persons.
Incompetence can be at any age however, look at America!
My friend, a boar hunter in Hiroshima, had his license removed after he shot himself in the foot! In his 40's and incompetent. Now he just runs around the woods with a big hammer.

and the people of color were always servants throughout it's entire history!
what would happen if any boy who is in line to the the throne of Japan says that he wants to get married to a woman of color?
In the Japanese context "woman of colour" would also include white?

Tell that to the over 8,000 people who died!
Oh and you want to "compare", Taiwan has reported 10 total deaths from COVID.
While many countries around the world have had excess deaths during this pandemic (USA 500,000+, UK 100,000+, etc), Japan has not had an excess of deaths and in fact in 2020 had about 40,000 LESS deaths than in a normal year.

In the US Army you get a medal for being potty trained, so being US Army Green Beret is really not all that much cop.
Nevertheless (despite what you see on TV) it's rare that that ex-special forces personel would puff their chests out and boast about their exploits to magazines and TV (even US ex-sf)
I should imagine that the US Army would be thoroughly embarrassed with these too clowns.
(By the way they nicked the green beret idea from the commandos, to who's skill and intelligence they have always aspired to but never reached.)

Couple of special forces wannabes. They'll collapse under questioning like a 99 yen umbrella in a typhoon. Definitely special.

Couple of gungho's that couldn't help but shout their mouths and show off about their exploits to TV, magazines, etc. Morons.
I have no idea what special forces unit that guy says he was in, but most special forces types are quiet, reserved and unassuming; and definitely a lot smarter than these two twits.
This clown was likely infantry cannon fodder and just has delusions of grandeur.

Firmly believe since he first ran for president, that Trump is utterly unhinged and mentally ill psychopath.
The fact that a huge portion of the GOP have put party before country and enabled this madman is horrendous.
The Trump-is-God complex that many replublicans/far right nutters, are now brainwashed with could likely destroy the party. They just are as insane as Antivaxxers and Flat Earthers.

Nah, the internet just makes it possible for us to read what's been happening all along. Japan is still the safest country I know of.
I think this is absolutely correct. This would not have even made the smallest section of the most local news reports in the middle class area of the USA I was living 3 years ago. It's a daily multiple occurrence there and would be publicly deemed the victims fault for not taking better care.

America sends two people to Japan for helping a framed person escape, while it sticks its middle finger to its ally, UK, by not sending back a woman who killed a boy by driving on the wrong side of the road.
Quite right. She has diplomatic connections and political leverage, while these two clowns are just expendable. Welcome to America.

Nothing like digging yourself a massive hole.
And then when you realize you have dug quite deep (but possibly might have a slim chance of climbing out) just carry on digging!!

Terrific. Thank you very much for educating us and generally being a voice of sanity over the last year, with so many FW's spouting copious amounts of utter nonsense.

Posted in: The public, already used to the unrelenting spread of infections and tired of life under self-imposed restrictions, seems less scared of the virus than during the previous COVID-19 state of emergency between April and May last year. Fear drove people to exercise self-control during the previous state of emergency. We can't expect them to do the same this time. See in context
Hopefully they will switch from fear to common sense then.
Ahh... Wait a minute...

So he likes to ram a bit of beak up his hooter... Who cares? Many thousands do it in Tokyo every day... Roppongi is like a blizzard sometimes... Doesn't mean he's an addict.
I could hardly walk either last night after half a bottle of gin, a couple of liters of red wine and a disastrous rugby match... Doesn't mean I'm an addict.
