How everyone got out of that wreck unscathed is beyond me.

it is amazing. luckily the fire apparantly took more than 20 mins to spread, so there was time to evacuate smoothly

Posted in: Russia says Japan did not inform it fully about radioactive Fukushima water See in context

but that does not mean they are wrong for demanding transparency.

of course not - demanding transparency is essential. it is just that said countries chuck a hissy fit, block imports, threaten nuke armageddon etc when the same is demanded of them. the countries that are somewhat 'relatively' transparent don't seem to act this way - why? there is a common denominator

why is it that countries known for lacking completely in transparency, demand transparency from others

Posted in: Japan tells citizens in China to lie low after Fukushima water release See in context

chinese nuclear plants release water containing tritium tens to hundreds of times higher in level than what japan is planning to release. japan has been transparent with IAEA and anyone else wanting to test the treated water - try getting ANYWHERE close to a chinese plant to test what they are releasing and you will find yourselves in cuffs quick smart.

all this chest beating by china is the typical hypocritical diversion tactic they use to smother their plethora of domestic ills.

Posted in: Decapitated head found at Sapporo home of arrested doctor, daughter See in context

Not sure why the hell the daughter kept the head for weeks. She could have easily buried it somewhere in the mountain or burn it. Why would anyone keep evidence of their crime around? 

zactly - why keep it. other than changing clothes when leaving the hotel (which she probably only changed cos it would have been quite a mess), the whole family doesnt seem too smart in trying to cover their steps...dad/daughter buying a suitcase and knife weeks prior, their car tracked on cctv all the way home, loads of cooler boxes outside....doesnt really make much sense

so the wife was arrested too, was she also involved? according to some comments on yahoo, the hubby and wife were on the best of terms and he was often seen sleeping outside in the car

Posted in: Doctor, daughter arrested over headless body found at Sapporo love hotel See in context

after 2 weeks, that head is going to start getting stinky unless its in a freezer. wonder if the parents knew, or they were just 'picking the daughter up' to take her home or something. this isnt ISIS - how many 29 yr old women know how to cleanly saw through a neck?

has this been updated? on the TV today, a guest on miyaneya was saying the joint didnt even use gas or have a gas supply agreement in place. some dude they had on suggested methane gas from an evaporated toilet trap, possibly from a tenant on a lower floor....the explosion wasnt a typical 'gas-filled room' type of explosion

Posted in: Woman arrested for failing to pay for 270-kilometer taxi ride in Iwate Prefecture See in context

In my opinion taxi driver is fraudulent!

victim blaming - he didnt force her to ask him to drive 270 km

A 270 km train ride would take much more than 2-3 hours

if you look at the map, the two towns are right along the shinkansen route, so can be done in that time.

12 hours to travel 270km, which is about 23Km/h.

must've been 下の道 and off the main roads, or stopping at combinis along the way to pee - can be done in 2 hours on the tohoku expressway, so the route must'be been 'avoid highways'

How old was the driver?

have you seen some of the taxi drivers here in Japan? 67 would be considered sprightly compared to some of the jiichans
