As much of a tragedy as this is, it is hardly surprising. Until the next senseless act.

Only 75 whales caught this season? and how much money was spent on catching them? Surely that money could be well spent on other pressing issues in Japan - the rebuilding of the devastation in Tohoku for example. It’s time to face the reality and to call it a day, forever. Well done SS for another productive season - take a bow! no pun intended!

Great job SS - if it weren’t for you, many more whales would be slaughtered. Yes, your methods may not be moral, but then again, neither are the whalers.

If the SS weren’t out there doing what they are doing, how many more whales would be slaughtered? Yes, their actions may not be moral, but then again, neither might the whalers.

How sad is this? The problem is people are most likely becoming desensitized to such issues.

Why waste your money at a gym when there are a million and one ways to do it freely. One requires slight imagination.

I love taking the train and watching almost everyone engrossed in their phones - of course then i proceed to remove my Iphone from my bag and tinker around.

Horrible processed yellow cheese, mystery meat thingy encassed in something which can hardly be called a muffin. Yes, they must have to give it away. Who would truly pay for such contempt of food?

illsayit, why on earth would you be ashamed to be Australian about cigarette companies being required to package their drugs in plain packaging? surely one could only applaud the Australian government for pursuing this issue. Far too many people are attracted to smoking because of the ‘cool’ factor and the glossy advertising surrounding cigarettes. Time to put it into perspective.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it! I’m just looking forward to the day when Japan finally catches up to the rest of the modern world and bans smoking in all restaurants and bars.
