    I find it ironic that consumers of McDonald's would be concerned about what they put in their bodies.

    a Japanese embassy official in Beijing, who declined to be named

    declined to identify the individual, citing reasons of privacy

    Am I missing something here? What's with all the secrecy?

    A non-American perspective.

    I can see how Beyonce would be up there, but Lebron James? Is this really a "world" ranking?

    Individually, they have the skills to beat anyone in this group. However, their unwillingness to take risks in attack (i.e. shoot more) has let them down again. Still, I would say that's an acurate reflection of Japanese society in general. No one wants to be the selfish guy who fails to score.

    THANK GOD! If not for that stroke of luck, she'd be dead now.

    I have a daughter of similar age and I also feel relieved to see her home safe every evening. What a terrible world we live in.

    That statistic doesn't mean too much.

    Actually, it does. Of course, there are exceptions when a team loses despite having more shots, but I think you'll find that teams that outshoot their opponents by a 3:1 ratio generally win. I've been watching the Japan national team play for over 20 painful years now, and this is a common theme. I doesn't matter how well you play, if you don't shoot, (basically) you can't win.

    I WISH more cars like that would get stolen. Maybe that would wake up some people.

    er... I don't.

    I think it's too late for Japan. Conservative thinking, old business practices and inability to change (quickly) simply don't cut it in the new global economy.

    Good on ya, Virginia!

    I must admit it was my misreading of the headline that brought me to the story, though...

    Handshake events. Where under-age girls meet unknown men who have paid money to touch them. Japan - you never cease to amaze me.

    Great. I can't wait to hear her in-depth analysis on all the players and matches. No doubt we'll get some fascinating input from Smap or Arashi members in the studio, too!

    You are SO WRONG. You obviously haven't been to a PM concert lately. He tours for his fans now, and he ALWAYS puts on awesome concerts. He certainly does not need the money.

    I feel sorry for him.

    I feel sorry for you.

    1,500 yen for McD'S?? What a joke.

    The average starting salary for a salaried worker (4 year university graduate) is 180,000 yen. For an 8-hour day at an average of 23 days a month, that works out to be 978 yen an hour. Even if you consider bonuses and benefits, they still wouldn't get anywhere near 1,500 yen. If we are talking about general pay rises in all fields, fair enough. But do we really want to live in a society where the guy flipping burgers at McD's makes more than your child's school teacher? C'mon, let's be realistic.

    Despite giving her permission to take paid leave (it's the law), her superiors definitely would NOT have approved of her absence on that day.

    I think it's silly that so many parents feel the need to attend school events, particularly for children in high school. For the first day of high school in Japan, students don't need their mothers, they need their teachers.

    Your sacastic offers to educate me on some of the annimated films that have existed in the past are not necessary. I have seen them all, and I could make my own list. My original comment alluded to the fact that the percentage of films that are shown at cinemas these days is considerably higher than in the past.

    If you would like to disagree with an opinion you see on this website, I suggest you do it in a more respectful manner, if you know how.

    Many posters here seem to be too focused on the fact that a police car was involved. The real issue is that one of the drivers has broken a traffic law, resulting in deaths, but there is no way to prove who it was. This is a serious flaw in in the system.

    In a country as technoligically advanced as Japan, why aren't there red light cameras at intersections? I see cars going through red lights every day!!

    I have often thought about this kind of scenario. Unless there are cameras on intersections, there appears to be no way to determine who is telling the truth after an accident.
