Posted in: Australia jails Japanese man for importing methamphetamine See in context

I applaud your^^^^ longing for more realistic sentencing for brutal crimes, yet these drugs are brutal to whole societies, so 9 years sets a nice example, but don't discount the danger of the act committed.

Umm, guns exist in Japan. Shotguns being one of the easiest to be licensed for. But these stiffs (RIP) are from Aichi. Yakuza.

Posted in: Road rage suspect goes on trial for assault See in context

I agree with Vanessa. Having spent a considerable amount of time on the roads of Japan, I've seen heaps, been assaulted (to his demise, but cops didn't chase him up to my knowledge), and have no respect for other drivers or the cops. Mostly don't see cops until after an event. Yet phone use, drunk driving, unrestrained kids, etc, etc is rampant on the blacktop.

Drive safe out there hombres, try not to piss people off, and deffo get a dashcam!

Posted in: Street Kart company ends crowdfunding campaign with dismal support See in context

Jim, on my marikart excursion, 2 of the other 6 'drivers' were Singaporean 'paper driver' ladies, one following the other, sometimes swapping position, always crashing into the back of the other whenever it wasn't pedal to the metal. I don't know how they survived the afternoon.

My Japanese buddies hadn't heard of it and loved it! They are very much left field though.

J-Cops... You are obliged to hand in any find exceeding 500 yen.

Have handed in purses and wallets before, but the hassle of having to explain how you didn't steal it is real.

And most of the infections in Australia have come off of the cruise vessels at berth, or foreigners ignorant of/intent on spreading this horror.

Ha ha, the kids and I were in Toyko recently and while I forget which line we were on, as the problem was widespread, we thought the conductor was making an announcement in Chinese, it was so bad.

Yes Abbey, a recording. By me.

It seems Japanese crematoriums don't employ a cremulator thus the bones remain largely intact.

The laws pertaining to the responsibility of a body and the funeral industry need an overhaul. They don't cater to the needs, wishes or budgets of a huge number of people.

Posted in: Truck may have taken wrong road before crashing with train in Yokohama See in context

You do realise that this employee hasn't committed suicide, he has died trying to do the right thing however mistaken he was. It simply seems to have been a wholly preventable accident. RIP.

It is amazing that no-one else died, and only 33 injured out of about 500 on the train, plus onlookers, local residents, etc...
