People quickly forget that, the majority of prisoners on death row in Japan have admitted to committing their crimes in order to get the death penalty.

"The shock and worry (the defendant) brought upon society and school education is unimaginable," Presiding Judge Toshiro Nohara said in handing down the ruling.

How melodramatic... and naïve.

It's too late for America to turn back. Gun control, gun banishment, metal detectors, more guns, arming teachers... none of that will work unless people learn to respect each other more.

Oldman: No one said he is a bona fide success. I know what you're saying though: the more he plays, the more other players will adjust accordingly.

Reward teams, not managers. Promote teams, not managers.

Consensus management is fine, but IMO, in many critical situations SOMEBODY has to make a final decision. You can't vote for everything, if you do, you'll take too long to take action and your competition will leave you behind.

"Homosexuality is not natural," Conditt wrote. "Just look at the male and female bodies. They are obviously designed to couple ... it is not natural to couple male with male and female with female. It would be like trying to fit two screws together and to nuts together."

...guess that's why he targeted Austin? Austin's got one of the highest LGBT rate of population in the US.

an addendum, the only time using photos / videos is illegal is when someone's image is being deliberately exploited for the purpose of monetary gain.

Correct me if I am wrong, but many famous "Youtubers" are being paid for the number of views through ads. Is that not monetary gain???

If you're not comfortable going to each table and suddenly filming people eating their dinners without their permission, then you shouldn't let a conveyor belt do it for you.

Posted in: Japanese firm seeks to spawn salmon farm revolution See in context

The innovation could be a massive boon for Japan, where a 2017 survey found salmon was the country's favourite sushi fish.

Really??? I didn't know that. I thought it was maguro.

Anyways, does this mean more ikura too? I hope so.

1) I think that 2000yen should be given to local municipalities for funding local projects (ie. child care facilities, retirement homes, parks, etc.)

2) Why would this apply to just casinos? Why not every other gambling venue? (ie. pachinko, horse/boat/bicycle racing)

Correct me if I am wrong, but there already is an import tariff to the US for foreign car companies who do not have a manufacturing plant in the US.

Posted in: Some people are calling Roger Federer, who just won the Australian Open and his 20th Grand Slam singles title, the greatest tennis player of all time. Is it possible to realistically compare great players (or teams) in any sport, for that matter, with those of prior eras? See in context

You obviously can't directly compare players or teams from different eras because they can't play each other, but I think the reason why we like to say "Greatest player or team of all time" is because of how much that player or team dominates the era they played in.

Apparently back when the bubble popped, a lot of people got screwed because their savings were only insured up to a certain amount. As such, they stopped trusting the banks, and keep their money in a safe a home.

Many major banks in Japan to this day only insure savings of up to 10 Mil. Yen

With that said, Fugu meat is over rated IMO. Good, but over rated.

The Japanese criticism comes after Asia's two biggest economies had pledged to improve ties.

Honestly, Japan needs to grow up. If China hasn't done anything illegal, then let it go. This type of bickering is endless, and detrimental to the relationship. When will Japan be able to show the world that it can be more mature than China, or even South Korea for that matter?

A 5 y.o. walking alone in the evening...maybe 20-30 years ago, I would have considered this normal, especially if there was a park literally across the street from home in a quiet neighborhood, or if the kid was playing at a friend's house across the street; but not now a days, knowing what we know of incidents like this, and how many crazies there are out there.

Posted in: American blogger makes more extensive apology for suicide video See in context

Didn't see the original video, just saw the apology video now, in which he says this:

"I should have never posted the video, I should have put the cameras down...."

Well I must say, this is why I personally don't believe his "apology" because it isn't a question of whether he should have put his cameras down, rather a question of should he have gone to that place to begin with for the intentions he had.

I have done enough to know that nowadays in the USA it’s recommended that grapes, hot dogs, and such be sliced before being fed to small children.

Right, but people rarely do so... not saying that makes it ok, but my point being that only so many resources can be spent on warning people.

I just find mochi the blandest of all food.

I guess if you eat only mochi, then it might be bland, but so is bread, rice, and pasta if you eat it with no sauce or toppings.

Yes, of course it's sad that people die from choking on mochi, but IMO, people have been warned time and time again using different media outlets... and if people still do not take precautions, then who is to take responsibility other than those who make the choice to ingest it? It's not like mochi is lethal by nature... companies don't sell or serve mochi laced with poison, or with razor blades stuck in it.

I read once that hot dogs are one of the top choking hazards for children (in the US). Has anybody ever heard people trying to make hot dog manufacturers or servers liable for choking on a dog? Well, maybe in America, any lawsuit is possible...
