E-cigs from my personal and non-second hand experience are better than smokes. I used to be a heavy smoker and i've been clean from those stinking death sticks for over 1 year.
I vape with my Halo Triton kit. Lungs have cleared up, health checks fine, can run for km at a time with no pain, and smell like tic-tacs. In my eyes you can't sit there reading articles about how bad these things are until you actually experiment on them. I use them and I am feeling better than I ever have.
Ingredients? Water, nicotine, vegetable glycerin.
No burning and about as harmless as a air humidifier.

5. Japan 1,360,000 10.7
Per year KT.
That's a little bit more of a clear reading of who the leaders of CO2 use are.
Nuclear power is a good energy source but not in an earthquake country. Maybe Japan should focus on a different economy?

Well.... At least they have some idea. Really there is nothing you can do... People will do wrong things, I think the punishment should be higher for sexual assault. Also I think women and men could maybe have free self defense lessons at the local school on Sundays or something. To seriously clean up this crime is to imprison, and "teach" them not to do it again. Yes.

As much as it is exciting to visit the moon, I feel that this money is being wasted. I and millions of others are paying higher tax now... Tax for? Literally burning millions of dollars up to launch a rocket? One thing comes to my mind when I see these articles... I think about the poor people who are basically homeless due to the 03/11 Tsunami.
Why haven't these people been helped properly?
As a TAX paying resident, I'm sure most of you agree.. We should be able to legally control where our money is spent, and if it actually supports our life.

Man I would love to have lower prices on meat, dairy, and rice. I love Japanese rice but I also like long grain rice... Would be nice if that stuff was cheaper!

Serrano easier said that done. Love to see you not panic when you think your going to die in a plane crash. The fact that flight attendants are expected to not panic is dumb in itself. It's always more scary sitting back and not really knowing whats going on!

This really pisses me off to read this. FIX FUKASHIMA then you can restart your death traps. Don't go trying to start more when you cannot even contain one accident.
Also while your at it... How about you move in right beside these nuclear bombs and enjoy your everyday life.
If the answer is NO you don't want to live beside it... Then why force us to?

China did jack all in WWII. The US ended the war. If it wasn't for the US China would be another prefecture. Don't forget that Chugoku.

Stalking in Japan is fighting not to loose someone you care about. Like calling them after a break up and trying to appologise. Stalking is rediculously claimed far too often in Japan. If there wasn't so many silly childish cases from people going through a normal breakup, maybe the J-Police could actually have the time and resources to save people that have REAL stalking issues..

Another stupid performance by communist China. It doesn't matter where SAKURA comes from, what matters is the culture and love around it which is celebrated by Japan. You ask anyone what country do they think of when you mention Sakura and they will claim Japan. China is really lowering it's appeal to me. All I hear these days from China is immature crying, I cannot remember the last time I heard a good thing from China.

I was reading that pedophiles are born with their sickness. It is also incurable. I show sympathy to them. It's the same as being attracted to any persona type, but in this case being illegal. There is two different pedophiles... one that molests and one that doesn't.
Still I agree that families should be made aware of previous offenders, for the right to be safe.
Posted in: When pedophiles or minors convicted of violent crimes are released from prison, do you think residents in communities they move to should be informed of who they are and where they are living?
