Posted in: Apples stolen from orchards in Aomori See in context

Someone needs to get to the core of this problem. I think the issue stems from the lack of security on the orchard. And a lot of people seem to be wining about stolen grapes as well. It's time we put an end to this succulent mystery.

Posted in: Tokyo 2020 marathon move decision 'final', says IOC's Coates See in context

So Japan and the IOC had years to change their minds about the venue. Yet they choose less than a year remaining to change the entire city? Good job all planners involved. You guys are doing a spectacular job.

Police not doing their job by patrolling the streets.

Pedestrians not paying attention to their surroundings or traffic signals, just walking without checking.

Drivers definitely not paying attention to the roads.

Government not doing things to help transport the elderly more.

The list could go on and on.

EVERYONE is at fault here, and they all know the issues.

But of course, nothing is being done about any of it.

Why not just line the entire course with people carrying buckets of water and arm them with super soaker water guns. As each runner passes, everyone can just shoot away! Fun for all!

"hmmmm, he's done it twice, he'll do his time, then we will let him out. I think he will learn his lesson then and then never do it again."

(one day after he finishes his upcoming sentence.......)

"oh you're back again? I am quite surprised, I would've guessed you could be a good boy now."

ahhhh the ignorance in the Japanese justice system.

A woman? As in one? I am positive there were at least a dozen more who did the same, you just didn't notice.

Posted in: Shibuya bans public drinking for Halloween in some areas See in context

Well. SWAT better gear up, and handcuffs better be a plenty. Just make sure you make examples of whoever does wrong. No mercy, start making arrests.

I mean this kind of nonsense drives women away. Without women around, there's no point for these Halloween celebrations. At that point, it's just a bunch of drunk dudes making a mess.

But it's just like "Japan" to focus on just one area. You can ban Shibuya, but then what about Shinjuku? What about Ikebukuro? What about Roppongi? etc etc........

This should be fun.

If high schools would end their absurd "no PT work" for students nonsense rules, you would at least get more people to cover the swing shift. And oh yeah, actually offer a decent wage. There are enough workers out there, you just have to entice them to work for your company.

Dude had strength, sign him up to a construction company for employment.

Multiple dash cam vids of the week would make a great show on TV.

Three students threw a plastic bottle at his head and then beat him up and stole a coin pouch containing 1,300 yen from him.

Let's see 1300 yen divided by 3 teens equal no more work for life!!!! They can all retire and live the good life!

Obviously they don't know how wives give their businessmen husbands daily allowances either.

Posted in: Japanese Winter Olympic medalist admits causing collision See in context

Does it even matter if he was in the olympics? He nearly killed people due to his negligence.

I guess if he were a GOLD medalist, this would've been "fake news."

and this.....

> Hiraoka, who had been drinking the night before the accident, explained he "confused the accelerator and the brake" when driving in Katsuragi on Sept. 29, sources close to the matter said.

Police are investigating whether he was under the influence of alcohol.

According to investigators, Hiraoka, who hails from the neighboring city of Gose, hit a minicar around 9:55 a.m.

Let me save you some time. He was drunk and is guilty. Case closed.

"Yeah, we wouldn't want to spread the wealth around Japan would we? We MUST keep everything in Tokyo right? These are my olympics, not yours sapporo. We are Japan!"

sheesh. it's one sport out of hundreds. Tokyo could spare a few to other areas and allow them some exposure. You know, encourage tourists to visit OTHER lesser known areas in Japan, to support tourism?

since February 

This has been going on for 8 months? And this was the first lead?

the unnamed suspect, a 25-year-old man

He's an adult. Name him.

he couldn’t control his lust for the girl. 

I'm sure he could control his pokeballs when playing pokemon go though.

 a police officer noticed a man riding such a bike.

Whoa! A police officer was actually paying attention to the streets?

Wow, such fun.

IOC: We are changing plans and adapting to help save the athletes and spectators some heat stroke. It's called adapting to the situation when necessary.

Japan: Adapting? Never heard of it, is that a new concept?

Changing plans? Was there a meeting about it? I don't remember contemplating it for months and then just hoping the problem would just disappear.

IOC: We make the rules, not you.

Sounds like he would make a GREAT detective in the Japanese Police Department. He can find out where people live easily and take full advantage in harassing women.

That's what it seems they are best at, based off of the articles here.

Well, good to see he is creating business for his division..................

Ah, I misread this part.

crimes such as theft and groping inside trains and at stations

INISDE the trains and stations, which doesn't include a person's house. Pretty sneaky guy there......maybe he deserves a raise instead for thinking outside of the box?
