when will the USA wake and realise that they have a major gun attitude problem? they have vertualy no gun control you can buy anything you want have sh*t loads of ammo without regulation? wow, how insane !! yet again another high school shooting when will they wake up and say enough is enough or is the government spineless to stand up to the National rifle association and the gun groups. I have begun to dislike the TV programs that we import from the USA, why? well 90% of them have gun or violence in them, or sometimes both!! The UK has become more aggressive and violent over the last decade, could it be that we follow trends on TV? or game consoles? it seems that way.

what annoys me with these stories is if your going to kill your self ...fine get on with it, but don't involve other people i.e. your child, the train driver, what about this poor bloke going about his business then some selfish pig splatters him/her self across his windscreen,,, not nice, also do the train drivers have counciling for the trauma they get?? and what about the people that have to wash the trains off and pick up body parts....right iam ready for the thumbs down brigade!!

storm r your dead right m8 you need to stop importing all of that dirty fossil fuel get the nukes back on on line and start paying back the dept! Japan has buried its head in the sand for to long when it comes to economics its going to take a brave man to change from the "old ways" lets face it they have not worked for 25 years, so why carry on with them? you have a brave new leader, give it time and things will recover, but there is going to be some tough calls and a tough time is ahead.

Judging by amount that he was spending i would class his as a pro gambler, so yes all of his expenses should be taken into consideration , if this is the case he should have declared it as a business and payed his taxes like we all do at the end of each year. or the easiest this would be to tax it at source, i.e. one the winning ticket , they could deduct any tax, this would have been simpler and quicker.

These sort of building project throw down the gauntlet to the rest of the world, it’s a huge undertaking, I find it extremely interesting to see how they over come problems, but with these sort of projects the down side is the colossal cost, the Japanese rail service is the envy of the world, whilst others are starting to catch up, but are still a long way behind. So this is the next mile stone that the rest of the world has to get a grip with. In the UK were still hell bent on HS2 that only politician’s want, the project will take up huge amounts of farm and house land, devalue properties, chop businesses’ in half, all so that a few people can get some where else 10 minutes quicker. The down side to this project is its going to be so expensive to travel on this train only a few will or can travel on it, could this be the case of the MAGLEV trains??

Toyota always seem to put there hands up and say we've got a problem, but ford and other companies buried there heads in the sand and denied that they had problems with there cars in the 70,s one of those models use to explode into flames when they were involved in a rear shunt, ford denied this in court after experts proved that it was there fault, it was down to a 50 cent shut off valve they wouldn't fit. well done Toyota for being honest

From what I've read and seen, the Japanese economy has been stuck in the doldrums for years, poor exports stagment investment etc, Sometimes you just need a fresh leader who has not got OLD ideas and old leaders you need some one forward thinking, open mind, I can see where Abe is going, but it will take a long time to change its not going to change over night, but it will be a long a painful route.

I suppose what will happen is that the budget rooms will have no tv but the upgraded one will, of course they will be more expensive to cover the cost, we had a similar court case here in the UK where "the TV has the ability to receive BBC programs" so a few wiz kids removed the the part from the TV that receives the BBC frequency, but allowed the TV to receive any other channel, I think they wone the argument and didn't have to pay the BBC for a TV licence, but it cost a huge amount in leagle fees, so who wone? I think that it was done on principle.

squirrels are a pest in the UK I've seen the damage they do 1 they strip bark of trees killing them also 2 I've seen the devastation where they have got into peoples lofts, and they have stripped out timber from the loft, also chewed through electric cables, house and burglar alarms causing thousands of pounds of damage. 66/1 i would say is very conservative more like 10,000/1 as the red squirrel is only found in a few pockets in scotland.
yes they are fluffy but so is a rat but every one hates them to! I won't get onto the subject of foxes, there needs to be a cull on them as well.
