Ive just looked at crazy joes link, the mini van has almost disintegrated, so having any seat belt on, probably in this case didn't help.

This has happened in the UK, it has added to the extra traffic on the roads, it also affects house prices, instead of kids walking to there local school mummy or daddy drives to the other side of town to drop the kid off, and then drives to work or drives home and this is repeated to collect said child, house prices are affected by the school results because if the school does well, people will move closer to that school so they can go to that school, but if its a failing school, its the reverse, will this be the same sanario in Japan? also kids are getting fatter here because they don't walk they get carried in cars, could this lead to more kids in Japan to get over weight?

I am surprised that he even got a job, why? well he had been fired from several jobs on the grounds of constantly filling complaints, IF these bosses did there home work and asked his previous employer why he was dismissed, he properly would not have got the job. It sounds like this guy had a massive chip on his shoulder, it certainly not the way to behave by shooting your work colleagues just for the internet media fame.

I was watching the BBC TV yesterday they interviewed some Chinese politician who was talking about the decline in trade, I was waiting for the sly swipe at Japan who was going to get blamed for the down turn in there economy, but it never came, I am bitterly disappointed!!

I can say, speaking on behalf of the men reading this article, my and there eyes must be watering !! can you imagine the comments from his fellow workers? "morning stumpy!" Iam sure there will be plenty of comments after this, but did the guy go too far? I would say that his actions require him to go to jail for some time, yes what the other guy did to his girl friend was wrong, but his reactions are over the top.

Japanese conservatives, including Abe, say "there is no evidence of direct involvement of the country’s military or government in kidnapping the girls". well there would not be since they burned all of the records!
No records so thats the end of it, job done!.........Abe san grow a pair of b**** and just admit the the Japanese government has got it wrong and do the right thing, and say were sorry!

I can't believe the police never traced her journey home from where she worked, checking to see if a car had left the road, i.e. looking for skid marks or damage to what ever, but at last she can be laid to rest now, and her family can have some sort of closure, but what happened to the two men? and why didn't the tell the police about the accident? where are these two men?.

British Scientists have made a UK version of Erica, they say the robot is or might be sponsored by Mc Donalds, the robot will weigh in at around 450Kg, be covered in horrible tattoos. ware tracksuit bottoms and a scruffy T shirt, the dentist is working on some decaying teeth to give it an "human qualities" the scientists have not quite got the speech pattern right yet, but on the other hand they say since its based on a Chav the speech is about right, on its first trial the robot was asked basic questions, the robot replied with a grunt and told the man to F,,,,,,,,, shortly afterwards the robot asked for a can of strong larger and a cigarette. A large car manufacturing company has expressed there interest in the robot, the spokes man said it would be ideal for those mundane tasks that no one wants to do, but after seeing the robot in action they chief executive has had now second thought, this was based on the chav robot didn't want to work, and started and stopped working at random times. The spokes man for the car company also reported that the Chav robot must have some mechanical problem (as it was a proto type) that it sounded like it was belching and emitted a funny smell from the electric motors. work will carry on with the MK 11 Chav robot next year.

what someone does in her or his own past time is up to them, so long as it does NOT interfere/bring the school into disrepute/effect the students, the school should not get involved. IF it illegal that should be down to the cops to investigate and bring any potential charges.
