Road without guardrails. So your standard unsafe for pedestrians side road that is all over Japan. Combine that with Jiji who can't see where he's going and the road probably being barely over one lane wide and this is what happens.

Bet it wasnt the first time she nagged on him. There is a hell of a lot more going on here than just the drinking!

Regardless, you don't beat someone who is nagging you.

I have a sneaking suspicion you're onto something here.

And what would that be? That these types of traitors and other right wing terrorist all have similar background stories? An obsession with guns and militias, anti government/sympathize with foreign governments, desire to commit mass harm to innocent people, white supremacist's always the same story.

It's been the same since the Oklahoma City terrorist bombing.

As is expected, Republicans are the biggest hypocrites ever and would rather side with communist China then Democrats.

The party of traitors, who would have thought that the biggest "patriot" flag waivers would be against protecting US sovereignty.

Yes it's an over reaction but Japanese society over reacts to this scandel as well. They already tried to blame the school this kid goes to because "Japan".

It still boggles my mind that this even happened. The party of "patriots" who apparently love American democracy allowed an insurrection to be carried out in their name.

Of course it will, they agreed to it decades ago. Electing a random anti-base governor will never do anything.

Anti-US base yet nothing has changed under his tenure. Sounds like a wasted effort but they'll do anything to appease the oyajis.

Posted in: 36-year-old mother arrested for abandoning newborn infant in Tokyo park See in context

Rather than rag on the woman like the rest of the crusty expats here I'll just say this.

This is a clear-cut example of the lack of a support network for single mothers in Japan. This woman went through hell, the fact that she thought leaving her newborn in a restroom was her best option shows the mental duress she was under.

These stories will never go away until Japanese society and culture changes, and we all know how long that takes.

I had it recently but didn’t register. I think their are many more just like me. My symptoms were similar to seasonal heat attack.

I had it recently and was laid out with a fever, fatigue, joint pain, horrible cough, and congestions for six days. I'm still suffering with a horrible cough that causes horrible chest pain. I think there are many more just like me.

I feel bad for these people, I really do. But I feel like that after all this time it's effort wasted continuing to raise this issue. They're gone, most likely either still in DPNK or have since passed and the DPRK is not going to tell you anything about them.

He was quoted as saying he had filmed up girls’ skirts on at least 150 occasions because it made him feel horny.

He may be a pervert, but he's an honest pervert.

Sad but again it's because of how horribly designed Japanese roads are when it comes to pedestrians. Always forced to be in the street, competing with cars and mamachari on her phone not paying attention as she barrels down the side of the road.

Police said the intersection has no traffic lights, and there is no crossing, either. Local media quoted local residents as saying buildings on all four corners of the intersection make it hard to see vehicles approaching.

Posted in: Musk offers to buy Twitter for $43 billion See in context

He is doing this for one of two reasons, both are related

Hostile takeover because Twitter won't let him say whatever he wants to manipulate the stock prices of his companies and it's too hard to start your own social media platform for billionaires and their out of touch fans.

It's one of Musky boys pump-and-dump schemes. By becoming the majority shareholder in the company and then spreading rumors of his hostile takeover he drives up the value of his newly purchased share in Twitter and will dump it all to make a quick buck.

Either way, ol'Musky is a spoiled billionaire man-child with a cult of personality of very strange worshipers.
