    In 2015, there were approximately 30,000 shootings in the U.S. Nineteen of them were by illegal aliens. So it's true that violent illegal aliens cause a problem, but the hype is a lot bigger than the reality.

    Well, I wouldn't call these mass shootings, but they are certainly shootings. It's another wonderful day in the neighborhood. The U.S.A. is an exciting place...

    Well, the idea is strange to me, but 1000 yen and hour is cheap, and it seems a lot of people just want someone to talk to, so ... whatever floats your boat....

    Well, let's see... the wall is built around the country, keeping the Mexicans and Canadians out - we stop all incoming flights and ships, keeping everyone else out - we lower prices on one-way outgoing flights to people with foreign last names ....

    Yeah, that should do it. We'll be totally safe. Well.. except for all the low-lifes with semi-automatics....

    Maybe proximity sensors can be built into the game so that users can know when they are running into a truck, walking into a lake, or crashing into terrorist operatives.

    Sorry for those affected by this tragedy, and hope they can care for those still at risk.

    There is little connection between anything Trump says and anything he says a month later, for sure nothing has been decided about Japan, and he knows nothing about the topic. The only connection is that whatever he says will feed someone's greed, hate, or fear. It's unfortunate so many fearful and hateful people see him as their poster child, but they are doomed to dissatisfaction no matter who is in office.

    The number of criminal cases detected by police in Japan in the January-June period fell 9.3% from a year earlier

    As others have mentioned, the phrasing seems to imply that there were, in fact, crimes, but something has happened that has caused the police to have trouble detecting them. Invisible criminals or something...

    If we can just make sure the bulk of the Pokemon critters are in obscure sections of parks, then we can keep users out of harm's was, and out of our way.

    I still think a joint project on Senkaku Disney would be the best path forward.

    A look at how some people indulge their dogs

    Really, they mostly don't indulge their dogs. That would mean that the dogs want the things mentioned, and that the owners give in and allow them to have them. However, dogs do not generally want a fru-fru kimone. What they want is a great big old leg bone of a cow that they can go bury somewhere.

    I think no first use is a fine idea. What country wants to be the one to begin the end of the world? What country doesn't realize that after the first use, there is going to be a second use coming at you?

    So, if we look at the world, Denmark is the number one consumer of butter (with Germany pretty high up as well), and Sweden is the number one consumer of cream. Life expectancy in Denmark is about 80, Germany is about 81, while Sweden is higher than that.

    Just replace the StayPuft Marshmallow Man with 5 fingers of death Kung fu Marshmallow Man and we're good to go. Oh, and China has ghosts, so that's unexplained science, not superstition.

    This is fine advice. Maybe the author could sell this to various tourist agencies and welcome stations. The infographic would have to be changed slightly, though, so that everyone appears to be having a good time, and so that a happy terrorist experience can be enjoyed by all.

    The Imperial Household Agency seems to be saying that the Emperor has no right to abdicate, no right to say that he wants to abdicate, and no right to even talk about the possibility of abdication. The Emperor, according to them, did not mention abdication because he may not comment on political matters. It therefore didn't happen.

    They believe the Emperor to be completely under their control. . I suspect reality may intrude, even with an Emperor who is a symbol and not a Sun God.

    "traditions similar to prewar-era family values centered on the emperor, and to put national interest before individuals’ basic human rights in some cases."

    Yeah, I really miss the days when you could send somebody else's obnoxious kids on suicide missions and all that fun stuff. Feudalism is pretty nice, as long as you are a feudal lord. It was a rather messy time, though, with all the bloodletting and finger slicing and disemboweling.

    There could be more to this story, though it would be a guess. The Imperial Household Agency has suggested cutting down on the Emperor's duties and hours, and THEN the Emperor says that if he has to do that, he will abdicate. I wonder if there is more to know about this situation... ?

    the residents of Takahama are by and large very keen to start up the reactors and get back to work. Its neighbouring Shiga ken ( Otsu court ) that is putting the stops on.

    Yes , because they get paid off when the reactor runs, while Otsu doesn't. Follow the money.
