Posted in: TEPCO ordered to pay Y1.1 bil in damages to Fukushima residents See in context

Actually... the damage amount sounds fair to me... roughly Y3.4 million each. Remember, this is a "pain and suffering" damage and has nothing to do with "physical" damage.

That means you’ve made a calculation. Do share.

only sad thing is the store getting ripped off by immoral people stealing what isn't theirs

More needs to be known about this case, to be honest. Morals go out of the window when a human is confronted by the choice of fight or flight.

And why is the store getting “ripped off” a sad thing for you and not the death of a fellow human who just happened to lift a morsel???

Superb on the kid to put her drills and teachings into effect. Could’ve easily gone south, this situation.

The respondents is the sampling. The conclusion is statistically correct and applicable to the whole population.

Akie. In that case it’d be 47% of the electorate so we’d need to eliminate those underage. I don’t guess they sampled people of all ages. A population consists of people from ages zero to maximum. Sorry for being pedantic.

How the canines are pampered. I guess the phrase “dog’s life” has a totally different meaning here.

I'm sorry I'm not comfortable working with anyone with metal illnesses

can be a concern sometimes but what it probably translates here is those undergoing treatment for anxiety etc. not full blown schizophrenics.

Not sure if it was meant intentionally but the man in the picture is adopting a threatening pose.

always enjoyed sneaking up on the bad boys and "accidentally" sweeping their chairs out from under them.

Not as a teacher, I’m hoping ;)

Posted in: Brazilian tennis player apologizes for racist gesture in Japan See in context

It was a spur of the moment gesture. But spur of the moment gestures are inculcated and cultivated by the way you're brought up. Let's admit, we've all done something snide in our own lives. $1500 - he got off cheap by today's rates.
