If it weren't so god damn scary, it'd be funny.

Glad she got away. Anybody else missing nearby recently?

I suppose it's not too extravagant by Tokyo standards. You'd struggle to feed your family once a month with it though... It is typical, however, that unsubscribing is going to be problematic.

So, Randy, what is the remedy? Is it achievable?

Possibly, Kumgaijin, but I've received unclaimed money that I've handed in. The cops sent me a letter inviting me to claim it. I was pleasantly surprised as I had forgotten about it.

I'll bet you a buck that he smokes, drinks and plays pachinko.

'the authorities discovered a half-eaten saury tossed in the trash can used by staff.'

Not so hungry after all, huh?

Some here assume that it is his bicycle. Perhaps, but more likely only through possession being 9/10 of the law.

Soup kitchen in Hokkaido? Me thinks not.

But if I was to put it on the line for food, it'd be from a supermarket, and for more essential items than canned drinks.

Anticipating there will be an appropriate followup story here with his trial & sentencing.

So funny.

@ Alan-

The research is clearly ongoing.

It would be interesting to know more about how Vegan/vegetarian diets affect the genome.

Sounds fishy to me. How does he maintain a smoking habit without money? Does he regularly steal? irregularly smoke? Or just pull the wool over the eyes of his inquisitors?

Aaaaand that's how Surrey Hills gets on the list.

My neighbourhood is so cool it refuses to be acknowledged on such an uncool list.

I think it takes a 'special' cop to be tasked with that counting. I bet there were heaps of officers with their hopes high.

The 260000Y on him wasn't stolen. From his real job, no doubt. Find him the nastiest community service there is. Fuel recovery by hand at Fukushima daiichi comes to mind.

Posted in: Man arrested for organizing rally of 200 motorcycle riders, motorists See in context

I was involved in a procession of a hundred or so motorbikes and cars for a friend's wedding ( the bride, groom and guests were all acquainted with a Harley chop-shop) in Saitama long ago. The police were informed, and permits issued so that, with the cop's assistance at intersections, we could ride in double file and create the least amount of congestion possible along our route. It was noisy, to be sure, but it went smoothly and all concerned were respectful. So with the right attitude and forethought, a mass rally needn't be an unlawful.

The above story doesn't mention bousozoku style antics at all, so what indeed was the fuss?

Such a lack of imagination. The global populace, bar a few nerds, will be rolling their eyes and tuning out.
