Thank goodness for that bus driver! As with most such things, it is the "lowest" people who find the problems, first.

1) Please stop referring to criminals, drunks, and sociopaths as "men."

Men wouldn't do such.

Just call them "males"; it's all they deserve.

2) I'm just wondering what difference it made

as to whether they knew each other!

3) At what point do airlines and airports stop selling alcohol?

What is the point of it? One multi-million dollar lawsuit

versus a $5 drink? Put the booze away, permanently.

Don't give idiots a chance to prove themselves as such.

Posted in: Video shows car speeding through Shibuya’s scramble crossing filled with people See in context

This vid shows how trusting Japanese urbanites are of drivers. On a recent visit to NYC's Chinatown, it was virtually impossible to get more than one vehicle through a particular intersection, because pedestrians know they aren't going to be run over. That doesn't happen anywhere else in NYC that I've seen, except for the distracted (smartphone/texting) pedestrian, the elderly struggling to stand much less walk, tourists, and, of course, the obnoxious, holier-than-thou, egomaniacs. At least the guy in this instance slowed down before nearly running folks down! I hope this serves as a wake-up call to all, everywhere.

The event is for bars, which, after having a few drinks, most men see women as little more than cartoons, so, this is an accurate depiction. ;)

Posted in: Oblivious Chinese tourists wander back into Naha airport’s departure area, causing chaos See in context

Curious that the age of the girls wasn't listed. Regardless, assuming the girls weren't terrorists, it means they didn't recognize that the area was off-limits and/or that signage was bad. It also means that there weren't sufficient sentries at those points (i.e., the breach of security is the airport's fault, not the girls'). Even in the USA, signs are few and far between in many airports, causing confusion among literate and intelligent people.

Now, if they could have designed it to be powered by the moving cold air or motor vibration, THEN they would have had something. Otherwise, at 43 USD, it better come with a lifetime supply of batteries! ;)

In this day and age, not having security at any public event is tantamount to disaster. 50 cm = 20". That's freaking huge, and could easily have been confiscated and/or the man turned away and/or have the police called. Ridiculous. And anyone who seeks to hurt others, especially innocents, regardless of the reason or state of mind, needs to be put away for a long, long, long, time.

Posted in: Snoozing here, there and everywhere See in context

This is why many undercover mass transit cops appear to be sleeping: To catch those who would prey on real sleeping people. A TV news magazine show had an episode about one such in a NYC subway, showing undercover cops on the train and platform, and it was amazing to see the criminals in action (assuming it wasn't staged, of course), some of whom looked like decent businessmen. Even more amazing were the few people who tried to help apparent drunks by getting or calling the police (when summoned, the police - - all of whom were in on the sting - - had to pretend to help the "sleeper"). It would have been more interesting to surreptitiously view real drunks/sleepers to see what might have happened.
