    Expect the following headlines in the next few days, if these reports ring true:

    "Japan lodges protest to WTO over Indonesian fast-rail snub" / Abe : "Indonesia has hurt Japanese feelings with this regrettable decision"... and so on.

    Anyway, does Indonesia really have the money to throw away on fast-trains when they FIRST should be investing in basic health/school/water infrastructure? A 50-year loan is a looong time.

    Tough luck to Kei. I really thought he would go deep into the tournament, maybe Quarters or Semis. (Winning a Major is a stretch for him) Ah well, maybe 2016 will be his year to dominate.

    There's nothing wrong with Visa and ID checking on peoples in the street.

    @ Chop Chop - Im not sure if you are just having a laugh here. But if not, if you like that sort of thing, great. Go and live in China where ID checks (and worse) for "public safety reasons" are commonplace. I can promise you this: Australians have never and will never tolerate ID checks for no reason on the street. Any government of any stripe would be annihilated at election if this was implemented. End of story.

    Yet another one of buffoon Abbotts political stunts that has backfired spectacularly. His Gestapo-like "Border Force" was created for purely political reasons, and this planned crackdown was simply planned to whip up fear. Thankfully Aussies generally cherish the right to free movement and will - hopefully - never tolerate the authoritarian "random" ID checks of individuals on the street that exists in less free societies.

    The drugs will always be there - the real issue is the weak-as-water penalties that exist. Half the field in the 100m final were drug-cheats who had served suspensions, ranging from 6 months to 4 years (and thats the ones who had been caught!). In drug-cheat Gatlin's case, he has been banned TWICE for using illegal drugs, yet they still let him compete!

    I believe (hope) Bolt is clean - but if he wins Gold in the 4x100M it means little compared to his individual golds : some of his Jamaican team-mates are convicted drug-cheats.

    Malaysia - yet another Asian nation that hilariously pretends to be a "democracy". Heres hoping Razak and his government is torn down soon.

    I feel truly sorry for the great majority of Indonesians. The corrupt regime of Widodo should be ensuring citizens have safe drinking water, sewage and hospitals BEFORE taking out 50-year-loans to build fast-trains that they cannot even afford.

    Congratulations Mr. Koide! There you have it - don't drink any alcohol, don't smoke - and avoid any stress - and you have a better chance of reaching that ton!

    the government is reportedly considering scrapping or scaling back a 52-year-old program that presents each person reaching the century mark with an ornate sake dish and letter of congratulations from the prime minister

    This Abe government really is taking mean-spiritedness to a new level...

    Rest in Peace to these two poor and innocent kids. What an awful end to their young lives. It appears CCTV has done its work in identifying the vehicle of the horrible child-killer, so we should be thankful for that. Years ago, the child-killer would likely never have been found. There is little doubt that - if found guilty - he will be sentenced to death by hanging.

    Caucasian girls really need to avoid wearing kimono and yukata.

    Why? Should Asian girls also stop wearing dresses and jeans, and stick to their traditional clothing? I think this is a nice example of a cultural exchange. The ladies look fantastic, and they are having fun in Japan - great for tourism!

    “We liked the characteristics of the people of Myanmar,” Flex Japan’s Toshihide Sakai told the Nikkei. “No riots, no strikes, no emotional outbursts.

    Translation: "The people are willing to worf for $2 a day, they are great!". Just make sure you are not an ethnic minority or show dissent toward the ruling elite...

    Melbourne is probably the best city in the world if you love sports of all kinds, and the Melbourne Cricket G round is one of the worlds truly great stadiums. However, like all Aussie capital cities, everything is obscenely overpriced. Japanese friends who visit are always stunned by the prices!

    Slightly harsh there, MyTime. It is best Kei gets his injury sorted out before the big games, namely the US Open where he must be one of the favourites. I think this may just be the kid's year - he is getting better all the time and the likes of Federer, Nadal, Wawrinka and Djokovic are getting on a bit. If Kei does not snare this Major, 2016 will surely be his time.

    Rest in Peace to the victims. Sadly, flying in Indonesia or using Indonesian airlines is taking a massive gamble with your life. No wonder most of their airlines have been banned pretty much everywhere.

    Rest in Peace to the poor woman, and hoping the others somehow pull through. I read recently that going for a week on 5 hours sleep per night renders one at the same competence behind the wheel as being 0.1 Blood Alcohol Content i.e. several beers. This country comes down heavily on those who even drink one beverage and drive, so it is right that the penalties are equally harsh for drowsy drivers. Jail time is necessary in such cases.

    Never, ever get behind the wheel while tired or drowsy!

    In horse-racing terms, the poor lawyer is now officially a gelding. I genuinely hope that within the next decade, he will be able to obtain a full and functioning penile transplant.

    Good. If I had someone sleazing around with my wife I'd take action too.

    Thats a very nasty thing to wish on anyone, my friend. The mind boggles as to what barbaric action you would also take against your wife in this event. These situations in life are sadly very common, and should not be dealt with by violence.

    As cracaphat says - it's not life and death.

    Actually, it is. Countless young gay people have sadly killed themselves or attempted suicide, growing up in a culture that made them think how they were born was wrong. Ask your gay friends and you will find out.

    And now those Aussies amoung us here who love dumping on 'septics' can shut your gobs.Put your own house in order.

    Well said, Black Sabbath. America, Spain, France, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, the UK, New Zealand, Sweden, etc etc - pretty much every developed and enlightened nation - has shown the way for equality and left us in the hands of redneck conservatives. Led by an old, failed priest, Abbott. The guy has failed, lied and embarrassed everyone at pretty much everything in his life - and this is merely his latest failure. The dope will be gone very soon - and marriage equality will be enacted.
