    anyone who supports higher taxes as an incentive to have babies has little to zero understanding of economics. You can vote that down as much as you like. It doesn't make you any smarter.

    would tax any married couple without children (for example, after three years of marriage) much more heavily than those who have a child or children. There is no reason a woman should get married, be a housewife, not work, and not raise kids, and receive a pension at the end of it for nothing

    That may be close to the least intelligent thing I have read on this site for a long while... and there is a very long list of prime examples to choose from

    and yet there are some who rather irrationally still support the barbaric and uncivilised practice of state sanctioned death sentences.

    ahhh "police statistics" -the bureaucratic construction of social reality... Police can manipulate crime statistics any way they choose.

    better, far better by every rational argument to legalise and regulate. This is nothing more than state sponsored propaganda. There never was any reason to prohibit cannabis in the first place; as so many countries and states are discovering now in the 21st century. Again Japan has it backwards

    @ The Original Wing the first time I saw Herbie play was in Osaka in 1996/7 - I took a train down from Akita to watch him. I saw him several times in London too; the last time with Wayne Shorter. You should go!

    To the ebst of my knowledge this 'friendly' wasn't even shown here. I certainly heard no mention of it at my sport-mad school today.

    Maori King! What a joke! A bunch of northern tribes loosely gathered together to thumb their nose at NZ's legitimate authority. Never was there a more daft movement in NZ.

    It's storys like this that makes one understand and support men's extra-marital affairs. After humping away in the office for life (essentially trading in all their hopes and dreams) to support a family men must face some heartless wench who wants nothing more than for him to die. If you didn't want that life - don't marry the go-getter type. Better yet, get your own job, stay single and die a spinster.

    No, certainly not. Whilst it is an abhorrent and utterly misguided notion (like creationism, or intelligent design) the act of denying the Holocaust is not in itself a 'hate-crime' as it does not incite people to partake in illegal acts, in and of itself. Freedom to express one's ideas is crucial in a free society, however awful or just plain in opposition to the facts they are. That does not mean that anything at all should free to be broadcast to other people; we should ot be free to incite murder, nor rape, nor genocide.... these things should not be protected under freedom of speech as they do actual harm.

    this is just one of the reasons that Japan does not deserve a seat at the table of important International affairs.

    Very interested to read the 2009 Government poll. 86% is obviously a faulty reading and one would be suspicious of the methodology, or even the actual results given the nature of Japanese government. And how very different when an actual criminologist makes a valid survey. 46% in support falling to 36% after explanation of legitimate concerns seems far more believable. One can only hope that Japan moves towards the stance taken by enlightened and humane countries who have removed this unnecessary, irrational and ethically bankrupt anachronism.

    Why is Lorde taking an award instead of Lady Gaga a shock? Although not particularly a fan of Lorde's music (or Gaga's... or Pop for that matter), the rise of Lorde as a media/pop sensation would seem to make awards hardly a surprise.
