I think that there has been several accidents here in the UK already, It might have been on a rail track as well, Ive seen lots of zombied people walking around not paying attention, but on the up side it gets people out and about, wow, and with any luck it might get school kids walking to school rather than being carried in a car, so hopefully we can see some health benefits.

If for some reason I had only 100 yen in my pocket and no food, and I was really down on my luck, I would simply go into a food store and ask them if they had any out of date food that they could give me, before they threw it in the bin, i would also sit in the street and beg, with sign saying no food, no money, please help! I would not brake into some ones house and kill them, its just so wrong, if I was the desperate i would ask every food out let, can i sweep your floors or wash dishes in exchange for 1 money or 2 food? this guy must have been very desperate, but killing someone is not the answer.

IF he gets prosecuted, why don't they put up a poster in some of his local train station? this poster can say XXXsan was caught touching a woman, the poster can say look if you go around touching, filming, lifting up skirts etc, we WILL arrest you we will shame you! don't do it! Iam sure news will get around and these sort of attacks on girls and woman will dramatically drop.

DRLUCIEFER< quite easy in the Uk, farmers have traceability, the farm is inspected and its monitored, the farm has to meet certain criteria before its give the stamp of organic this process can take up to 7 months, they want to know what fertiliser is used etc etc, but in country that is endemicly corrupt what chance that is 100% organic we will have to watch and see.

@jefflee, As a responsible employer i find it difficult to find trained staff, either I've got to train each person, thus costing me a small fortune, and now that i have to pay this pension on top my profit margins have been squeezed and squeezed, its getting to a point that ill chuck the towel in, although there is labour out there, most and I say loosely most Brits don't want to work, I can't charge any more as there is a lot of unqualified people out there undertaking my type of work, and most is cash in hand and I can't and I don't want to compete, sorry I work for nothing, because they get so many benefits its not worth them coming off the dole, so the problem lies with previous governments handing out shed loads of money with little return, i.e. they should do some sort of unpaid local work, and if they turn down a reasonable job offer may be they should forfeit any benefits, we need to change attitudes to work soon, right, back to immigration, there are some sectors of the public that call the Polish and other races, but what they can't see is that they work! they work hard for there money!!! IF all of the poles and XXX go home as they chant this country will come to a grinding halt! I don't have a problem with people that come to the UK and they work and support them selfs and there families, unfortunately there is a small band of people, we have bread a nation of lazy people who rely on hand outs, this has to change,

I have been unfortunately had the pleasure of watching JTV, its not good is it? There is one guy on NHK who i dislike immensely he's on a cooking program and the lady who cooks come up with nice tasty meals, BUT get rid of him as he's just repeats every thing that she says!! like, he's a dam parrot! she says,"lets put the chicken in the bowl with these herbs and some salt"....etc etc... then he has to repeat it, Yes, "lets put the chicken in the bowl".......WHY??? i can see that she's put the chicken in the bowl, this so condescending, its infuriating, its belittling! don't you think that we can't see whats she's doing!!! Grrrrr! Japanese TV producers, PLEASE come to the UK and see how good TV programs are made and then you might see the errors of your ways. take a look at Sir David attenboughs "Blue planet" and other programs like this,The Living Planet (1984)
The First Eden: The Mediterranean World and Man (1987)
The Atlas of the Living World (1989)
The Trials of Life (1990)
The Private Life of Plants (1994)
The Life of Birds (1998)
The Life of Mammals to name but a few.

"Yang had been missing for more than two years." question 1: where has she been for these two years? " was not badly decomposed when discovered. Reports said the woman had not been dead for long". 2: so she must have been alive up until recently, so why kill her, and whats she been hiding for two years? sex slave? why hasn't she made any phone calls back home? very suspicious.

In the UK there are some TV programs showing what stupid people have done IE driving over a train level crossing whilst the barriers are going down, and running in front of a train, 90% of them just can't wait 2 minutes but they will risk there lives and others. could this be the case here? could these two ladies not wait for two minutes?

Its been proven that eating good health meals fuels the mind and body, my late wife was on the board of governors at a local school and she fought off the council, the local council wanted to close the school kitchen (to save money) and then every day bring in warmed up food, this was done on a trial period, it was noted that 90% of the food went in the waste bin because it was foul! warmed up veg!!! no thank you. any way after a long battle the council collapsed and gave in, the kitchen was reopened after some modifications, it was noted that the children in the late afternoon, were more focused and paid more attention to there studies. they were more active and less lethargic, so it just goes to show that good nutritious food is essential to a healthy mind and body.

It does sound like a brake problem, if the brakes had locked on that why it was still one a run way if the brakes were ok it could have taxied to a safe area to be repaired. thus not blocking a run way.

If I could post a picture on here, it would show the uk as 1 big toilet, why? because the UK is in turmoil right now and I can't see it getting any better for years, and this come on the back of a very deep recession which were just starting to come out of.

“There’s not a single female who gets pregnant wishing for an abortion". well i think thats she's wrong on this point, what about a girl/lady thats been raped? and they get pregnant through the mans actions. I am sure that 99% will want an immediate termination. I think that if your offering sex education you should include every aspect, teach children that selling them selfs is wrong, use condoms to stop STD. also that men/boys should respect girls rather than treating them like a piece of meat. Yes its good that she's trying, but what she's trying to achieve is only a small part of relationship, personal hygiene, how to spot early signs of an infection, also when the girl/lady has had the baby what is expected of the new mother and what rolls the boy should play.

what would happen if the op didn't go to well IE if the patient got an infection? would/could he go back to the clinic and get some anti biotic's or if its more serious, and it require a trip to a hospital to rectify a major problem, who picks up the medical tab afterwards? would the insurance pay up because its not an op that they have authorised? and if the insurance won't pay up how or could you sue the clinic for a botch job? and would you because of the embarrassment??

"you’re given a choice between three schoolgirls to initially approach." ok, right, this is already quite disturbing, and they they hate you, There is this underlying Japanese culture with the unhealthy fascination with school girls, I can see in the future that some guy is going to get a complex, (if he has already not got one) is he now going to start to hate young girls? is he going to take fiction into reality? I feel very uneasy with this game, I am sure there is going to be one or two nut jobs who will start taking there hate or revenge out on a innocent girls, is this sort of game encouraging or starting to promote the hate of woman? and with a few rejections from young woman, with the addition of these games, well time will tell and keep looking at the news for more "Girl hate crime".

Are the ambulance crew not certified to pronounce death? is it only possible that has to be done by a doctor, who was back at the hospital? she might have been dead at the road side, just a thought.
