I find ‘gokiburi’ absolutely revolting. Thats why we need cats to hunt these buggers down.

Darpa's research gave us the internet. Was that not well spent money? Yet now, Google, creature of the 'net, has been ordered to erase bad memories from their servers, by EU edict, for and by people who prefer to be unknown. Irony. Anyway, this is another great step forward, but to where does is lead. What will be the new creature as a result of these discoveries?

Ill mannered men do no good
nor help the LDP's many worthy causes, with this nonsense.
Grow up, lads.
Learn how to be respectful and maybe others who notice such things would respect you.
One of the quickest way to lose your seat in politics is to be offensive to ladies worthy of respect.
That's my 2 yens worth.

Abe's policies are really very good steps in the right direction and I applaud this latest move.

Japan itself was formed by "climate change", seismic ans tectonic shifting. So what? What legislation by man can alter the course of the wind, the movement of the earth itself? Trying to call opponents of myopic "climate change legislation", knaves explaining away something so obvious to "believers", is in itself beyond belief. Seas rise and fall, continents move, fire spews from undersea volcanoes. Quick, pass a law!

I hope they will discuss how, together with the ROC/Taiwan -- officially & diplomatically recognized by the Holy See/Vatican, Japan can help mainland China evolve and convert into a more peaceful, free, honest, respectful and democratic nation. Good luck Abe-san.

...there seems to be a penchant, among certain homocidal types in parts of Japan, for storing bodies in luggage and related places. Is this an outlier to the dangerous effect of the Louis Vitton craze among Japanese ladies?

The only Japanese territorial claim that US Policymakers say is 100% Japan are the northern territories, occupied by Russia, all the rest have weasel words, like, administered by Japan, per Jim Zumwalt at the State Dept, in charge of East Asian Affairs. Still, Abe's moves are seen as sound and welcome.

Adelsons got his fingers in all those gambling den pies. Its a vice and is a shameful pursuit. I worry for the future victims of gambling addiction, a step up from the gateway of pachinko etc. People lose not just their money.

So Obama said, I am really weak and unpopular at home with barely 40% approval, 60% disapproval --- and you, PM Abe are very popular by comparison...... well, at least on that part, Obama was quite correct. If thats really a good method of persuation to get Abe to start doing unpopular things as well, ummm, that doesnt sound like leadership, that sounds like the swan song of a lemming. Come this way, "concede" to me really unpopular measures, as I have. Oy, ve.

Lets look at this MOL ship seizure for a moment: On a different side to the same coin, it wasn't long ago that the independent US regulatory agency overseeing maritime transport, ruled that both K Line and NYK Lines, very reputable Japanese ocean carriers, pay fines of @ $1 million each for... the kind of things only a statist uber regulator can come up with. An arbitrary number thrown at them to pay up, or else. Then on the heels of that, the same US regulators held a Global Summit of Regulators in DC end of last year, and their vaunted main invited guests from overseas were from... the PRC, plus EU regulators. No one from Japan. Sharing notes on how and who to "regulate". So, the MOL vessel wasnt seized illegally, it was held up by the Regulators. For "just cause" operating under "the rule of law." MOL didnt pay ransom, it was just a fee, a settlement. Until the next time it happens. Yes, the PRC and those in lock step with their mind set -- makes this a more unfair, unjust and dangerous world, and businesses must realize the risk. "Regulators of the world unite", paraphrasing the old Marxist slogan.
