Good luck to that primate. He is a mean SOB and if the guy with the sedative dart gun had been any closer, his face would have been chewed off. The three phase power (for those of you that don't know electrical power) the three power lines on the top of the power pole carry what is called three phases of power to run equipment that requires three phase power unlike home appliances that use single phase with a ground like your rice cooker that has two flat prongs and a rounded ground wire. So long story short, they must have shut down the power in that area because if you grip at least two of the three thick electrical lines or their connections you will be electrocuted. If you don't believe me try it.

@anonymous jones. First of all I have used hawkeye as an online moniker since I was a kid using cb radios in the 70's and have been also on line the internet since around 1990 so grow up. Anyway for example if you were on the beach in Japan and were at the beach with your jwife and kids for the day then some Japanese or foreigner with tats and body piercings plunked themself next to you and tried to strike up a conversation, I would pick up my family and move because I dont want to be identified with them. Maybe that is prejudice but I have a life and career to support my family and don't give a damn about tat life.

I think tattoo's are low class and body piercings too. Personally I dont want to bathe or soak with people with them so it's fine if some onsens allow them and some say no but make separate areas for tat and non tat people. The next challenge to onsens is going to be the transgender issue.

Im sure the usa ranks below japan in an english proficiency test from what you hear when people speak on the streets. Lol. In Japan since it is an Isolated island culture there is little need to learn any foreign language to do your regular job or go about your daily life. Countries whose borders are touching have always had to use other languages to trade etc. I think starting kids off in kindergarten with short classes and when you are in high school your doing up to 90 minutes three times a week might do the trick

Das ist ein autobahn? Really 120 kph is a joking slow pace considering the Japanese Tomei for example is easily designed for 150 kph or more. The problem is not in the highway spped limit, it's in the ability of everyday Japanese drivers not being practiced at driving at those breath taking speeds. Lol to 120 kph.

Political correctness means nothing anymore, we are at war and the enemy has infiltrated and lives next door. Start profiling the obvious persons, investigate them, question them, deport them to a big Gitmo style camp on an island very far from any land mass.

Ok lets let every numb nut with a passport go to north korea, get arrested, tried by a kangaroo court and the USA tax payers need to shell out millions to get them back as well as heighten tensions between all the neighboring countries as well as have to spend more millions on military preparations. All for some dumb idiot who should work the rest of his life in a maximum security prison breaking boulders with a tack hammer to pay back the millions of wasted money to save his dumb rear end. I say let those turkeys rot in the DRNK.

Typical stupid situation that will waste tax payers money. The USA should forbid US citizens from entering DRNK unless on a government authorized visit. If you break that rule you get jail time in the USA plus have your passport permanently revoked.

I dont understand the obvious insertion of constant black people into the everyday media. I watched the academy awards with my j-wife and almost never saw a latino or asian yet black comments ans or references were so prominent that I question the system ans media of ppropaganda tactics. Not everyone in the USA is responsible for slavery and it's results but it is 2016 so get a life and move on.

I have avoided getting the flu shot for more than ten years because I think it is bs. I also have not been infected by the flu since then. I go out in public, eat and drink in public places, I have been a regular visitor to hospitals with my wife or visiting my mum in a nursing home, shake hands etc and have never been ill with flu? I just dont eat fast foods, use public toilets and wash or clean my hands or stick my fingers in my nostrils after making personal contact. Seems to work for me, try it.

@strangerland. I do not like to conduct direct replies to questions on blogs as they are always some form of one on one arguments. For the record my children when living in Japan and then also living in the USA always confronted prejudice from class mates who told them they are not japanese or white which made them feel they were not one or the other and something less than perfect in either culture. I dont know about your cultural or ethnic background but if you are a 5 year old and told there is something wrong with not being a 100% one or the other race or culture that sucks.

Why was the family treated in such a manner. I hope that Allegiant Air, the subsidiary of Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel Company goes belly up and anyone of their staff or their families gets a taste of bad karma. Dirt
bags but hey it is a Las Vegass based company.
