It is appropriate that they have that big red blob on their tails.

Wonder if they ruled out the possibility that he was hit by a Yamanote line train.

Looks like Mao Asada put her boots on before she put her tights on. Strange..

Apparently he has just been released on bail of $10m. If you accosted a robber who had just stolen $500 out of your wallet, would you accept a promise from him not to run away if he gave you a bond of 10 cents? (Hint: He still has $499.90 of your money).

If they spent more time digging and planting in their fields like real farmers, rather than milling around in Hibiya Park, they wouldn't need tariffs to protect themselves.

Congratulations to Honda! Think of all the mindless generation of greenhouse gas that will now be avoided.

"Does that paint cause any harm?" It would seem to hinder creative innovation.

He is not completely wrong. The West was busy carving up Asia for themselves - Japan could not just sit back and wait to be the last thing on the dinner table.

Tragic. But I cannot believe that Islam extremists are behind this because Islam is a religion of peace.

Posted in: NTT develops shoes that generate electricity See in context

Great idea! These shoes should be issued to death-row inmates so that they could generate the electricity needed to power their chair. That way less expense to the tax payer. The electricity they generate during the months of their appeal process would be gathered and stored in a big battery ready for the big day.

That’s not the story. She caught these kids red-handed in the act of spraying graffiti on that wall. Round them up and ship them off to reform school before they turn really bad! The one without a hat looks a real tough-nut. Glad he's off the streets.

I guess we will never know whether there really was a hornets nest. But I'm sure that nice fat insurance check will come in handy...

Posted in: Police suffer from inappropriate emergency calls See in context

I assume an appropriate call for the Japanese would be go something like this: "Come and arrest me. I did it. I admit everyting. I'll sign/put my thumb-print on whatever you want. It's a fair cop."

Sail an inocent-looking cargo ship packed with special branch forces through these waters. Then let them have it. After hijacking a few of these ships I think the message would get through.

Computer simulation shows the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport has absolutely no imagination. I would have included some people floundering around in the water or paddling about in boats. And, of course, a shark fin.

an estimated 116 square kilometers of land lies below sea level

Does that mean normal sea level or some kind of storm-surge or high-tide sea level? If it is normal sea level, how do they drain rainwater, etc, out of these areas?
