OK, my product XXX is produced in an earthquake zone also, you should stock up now!

I guess everyone used up the last big stock pile scare of 2011.

Toshiyuki Hashimoto, a ministry official in charge of paper production, warned a toilet paper shortage could occur if another calamity as big as the March 2011 earthquake would hit the country again.

Please don't let my wife see this!

But seriously, I can't recline my seat on a 10 hour flight because of your big a$$?

I have no doubt you have already reclined your seat fully with no regards to the person behind you.

I'm thinking life and sterilization would be a little bit of a better sentence.

Too beat and mistreat a 6 year old (anyone) over a period of time take a special kind of monster.

his brother and friend were with him and they left? is that correct? if it is how could they leave him to die alone especially his brother? maybe they couldn't prevent the attack, but they should have at least tried to stop the bleeding and call for help.

Or maybe, the brother is the one who did the stabbing.

How hard could it be to have a loved one wear the same thing with your cell number?

Yes, because Seth Rogen and James Franco are the top actors in the US and they could sway the US to try and take Kim Jong Un out!

Prepare for the “stern” and “merciless” retaliation!

Posted in: Police may film interrogations under new proposals See in context

I would rather that everyone, including innocents bare some of the pain of maintaining a crime free society


Until that person is you.

Personally I trust the police not to use excessive force, and myself not to confess even in the face of psychological duress (which I would welcome) if innocent.

Until day 21 of non-stop questioning.

Change "may" to "must" and your good.

Speed is correct, a 25,000 Yen DVR and camera with a 2TB hard drive will last the 23 days of additional "questioning".

Posted in: What do you think of lasik eye surgery? See in context

Had it done last year, should have had it done long before that. The new higher price one (not the highest) was no pain and glasses in the trash when I walked out.

Was on the table for about seven minutes. Done in Shinagawa.

You can however over correct your vision, I can see for long distance, but now need reading glasses, 1.5.

Posted in: What do you think of the names that Japanese automakers give to their cars? See in context

Like a lot of other products spelled out in Japan, they don't make sense:

Naked, Scrum, Honda; Acty, Brio, Crider, Vamos Hobio, Mobilio, Spirior, Vezel, Nissan: Bluebird Sylphy, Fuga, Homy, Kubistar (rebadged Renault Kangoo), Mitsubishi: Attrage, Colt Bakkie, Freeca, and Grunder.

To name a few.

Posted in: Man arrested over death of 10-year-old boy in tub of boiling water See in context

The big question is, did the boy have clothes on?

If he did not, then there is no way this was not done without malice.

If he did have cloths on, then how did the water reach that temperature to begin with?

OK. I'll post now that a butt load of smokers flip cigarettes out the window here in Okinawa when done.

While your stopped at any signal that has a median, look and see what I'm talking about. If the median has any kind of greenery, you will also see drink cans.

Posted in: Each year, Hollywood comes out with remakes of old movies (one of this year's will be "Godzilla"). Which of your favorite old movies would you absolutely not like to see remade? See in context

Godzilla (ゴジラ?, Gojira) is a gigantic mutant Godzillasaurus kaiju and the King of the Monsters. He first appeared in the original Godzilla film, which was produced by Toho Company Ltd. and released on November 3rd, 1954. To date, Toho has produced twenty eight Godzilla films.

One more can't hurt.

I think the remake of Old Yeller would not go over well.
