Why do they always call such event "an accident" and not "an incident"?! If the man jumped intentionally or was pushed, then that wasn't an accident.

I have another idea...airline companies should take the biometrics of every passenger upon booking their flights. then they can decide where to put fat people, thin people, hobbits, etc. and again, pay per kilo upon check-in. charge double if anybody lie in giving their biometrics. how does that sound Sarge?

American? Singer? Model? ... Singer; 'popstar' maybe more appropriate... Model; I don't want to 'categorize'...American; is BUN american? then she would be american by marriage, which is just about to end. but as to 'ethnicity', everybody knows that she's japanese-filipina. The point is, JT could have started the article in a different way...with 'hard facts' perhaps.

@Disillusioned...are you living in Japan? If yes, for how long now? You'll discover that 'ignorance is not only an excuse but a way of life' in Japan if you've lived here long enough.
Then again, why were those poison mushroom mixed with the edible ones. Who grew them? Who picked them? Who brought them to Tokyo? Who sold them? Who bought them? Who were rushed to the hospital for food poisoning after the festival? Who among those rushed to the hospital actually went to the festival and bought poison mushroom? Connect the dots people!
But then again, this could be resolved by just an apology here in Japan...apology for not knowing that the mushrooms are poisonous.

Sounds like they are really going after those clueless newbies who thinks that expensive cameras automatically takes good pictures, or videos...What is this exactly, by the way --a video camera or a DSLR?

The Japanese education system just isn't working enough to prepare people for what they really have to live by. They only teach about what, where, who, when, how many and how much, not the hows and whys. Their system continue to breed more and more 'underachievers' with 'very fragile egos' and consider it 'the Japanese way'. This is the result.

I'd say 'air raid scene along a river in the Apocalypse Now movie by Oliver Stone'. I was actually there at the location with my dad to go fishing (it's a popular local fishing area especially for young boys that I once was), but we were not allowed to enter that day because the area was closed for the filming. So my father and I waited and watched how it was done. I wasn't really impressed seeing it on site (LPG bags hanging on the trees), but I got astonished when I saw the outcome in the movie. Oliver Stone actually inspired me more later in life. I make TV commercials now...;-)

Filthy rich people see things differently. And I think nobody here understand how things work for them in their plane of consciousness. Who does? Most of them neither understand how it is to be filthy rich. But everybody here makes a lot of sense in this plane of consciousness - reality.

Another thing is "the Japanese workflow system". Most of them work on daily routine work--like the assembly line in factories. They don't have any control of what they are supposed to do especially those in the ranks. Their bosses decide on everything, even vacations. That's also the reason why they are so scared of their bosses (this could also be a good discussion topic for later). They just work on things as they come on their desks on a daily basis. So others really have to work double if they're covering for a coworker on vacation. They feel bad about that situation. But there are always exception to this.
