    @kurisupisu - Quite a list of non-facts there. How about some sources to back them up?

    bulldozing to death (literally ) international observers

    You're obviously referring to the Rachel Corrie incident (who is one person, by the way, not "observers". The driver of the bulldozer testified in court that it was an accident.

    torture of children

    Now you're just being ridiculous. What's next, "serving Palestinian babies as hors d'oeuvres"?

    Every time there is suicide involved, you have a good reason to believe that there is foul play involved. This leads me to believe that it was an inside job to distract attention from the media in which police was the perpetrator and out of a sudden it becomes the victim. The powers out there are dirty and do all kinds of things.

    Either that, or

    The officers' killer, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, committed suicide shortly after the brazen daytime ambush on a Brooklyn street. Investigators say Brinsley was an emotionally disturbed loner who had made references online to the killings this summer of Garner and Brown, vowing to put "wings on pigs" in retaliation.

    Hmm ... I wonder which one is true?

    Totally agree with randomenigma about the hypocrisy of the lawsuit. "Unfair Competition" is what most airlines should BE SUED FOR, given their collusive practice of jacking up airfares during peak periods. Not to mention the huge increase in ticket prices when oil has expensive, but no reduction in those prices since the price plummeted.

    It would be better to package it as a volunteer experience, with a small(er) amount of money being paid out to cover expenses. Calling it a "Heavy Snow Region Experience Tour" seems pretty sly to me.

    > I'm not saying it's the woman's fault, but it's been my observation that many young Japanese women are too naive and trusting. They go overseas and if they meet a local (usually male) who speaks even a smattering of Japanese, they can rather easily get picked up

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Let's say that sentence is correct and/or is a genuine observational belief. Do you really think (in hindsight) it's appropriate to mention such a 'delicate' topic at this time when the news has just broke. Put yourself in the the place of this young woman's parents, imagine them reading what you wrote .....

    I totally agree with you, Noob, and was dismayed (and actually a bit disgusted) to read what Underdawg wrote. The woman who was gang raped over three weeks may have been a bit too trusting, but what happened to her was NOT her fault IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER.

    Anyone not wanting to eat their cigarette alit, should better put it out in my presence.

    I'm only going to places where smoking is not allowed...

    Lucky for the smokers .... they won't have their lit cigarettes jammed down their throats by Ebisen.

    We have a way to prove that we have nothing to do with the case without resorting to torture, as what the CIA does, [North Korea] said.

    LOL Yeah ... I guess all the UN and Amnesty International reports, in addition to what dozens of escaped dissidents have to say, is untrue then.

    I agree with Southwest Yamatojin. Maybe if there were more than seven outdoor trash cans in the entire city of Tokyo, people would have a place to discard their garbage (slight exaggeration, but not by much)! The sarin gas attacks were more than 20 years ago, and there's still a paucity of trash cans in Tokyo. People can't be expected to carry their garbage around with them all night, can they?

    I think a few posters missed the point of the nurse's criticism. It wasn't that she was quarantined, it was how she was quarantined.

    Hickox, who was transferred from the airport to a hospital where she was placed in isolation, described a confusing and upsetting experience at the airport and worried the same treatment was in store for other American health workers trying to help combat the epidemic.

    "I ... thought of many colleagues who will return home to America and face the same ordeal, Hickox wrote in an article published on Saturday by The Dallas Morning. 'Will they be made to feel like criminals and prisoners"?

    Not much different that those sad situations where a nightclub flouts safety standards and a fire ensues.

    I will have to respectfully disagree with you here. In this case, the fans were repeatedly told to come off the grate, but chose to ignore those warnings. As tragic as this accident was, I'm afraid the responsibility lies partly with them.

    It's interesting how a couple of people are discounting psychiatrists' understanding of the human mind and behavior when the very definition of a psychiatrist proves them wrong.

    Psychiatrist --> "a medical practitioner specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness."

    Since most people would agree that stalkers engage in abnormal behavior and that they lack compassion for the feelings of others, who would be better able to analyze that behavior than psychiatrists?!

    The title should read that he 'died', not that he was 'killed', since this suggests that it was done by a Sherpa, not because of a fall.

    Unbelievable. Japan is economically doomed due to its rapidly declining population and yet these moronically insensitive men harass the very women who are helping to stave off its demise. I wish these dinosaurs could die off, but unfortunately it's a systemic issue that will continue to present itself in this chauvinistic, male-dominated culture.

    Shortly after the tax increase was implemented, Abe and his cronies announces a several hundred billion yen 'incentive package' for businesses to 'increase investment and hiring', even though some of those businesses are riding on their largest cash reserves in history. It has been proven that these monetary gifts have very little direct effect on hiring and capital investments (within large corporations at least). The massive debt problem isn't due to under-taxation or flat wages. The main problem is the same as it has always been in Japan - government corruption and waste.
