    Therefore, going by the Doraemon cannon...

    Editor, the correct word is "canon."

    Does anybody have the line score for Anraku's shutout effort yesterday? Why keep the kid on the mound when you're up 8-0 in a qualifying game?

    DisneySea had a water show last year where the entire point was to get soaked to the skin. They sell lots of cheap plastic raincoats and dry T-shirts to this crowd.

    Stopping Russians is exactly what is needed to prevent humanitarian crisis.

    Utter Nonsense! It's not Russia firing into the civilian population. But it's the ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine who are suffering. I know this from a friend with a child who has been hunkering down for several days and two days ago said there was no food available. Kiev needs to implement and honor the cease-fire right now. That's what can stop this humanitarian crisis.

    There is a grave humanitarian crisis in Eastern Ukraine where innocent mothers and children are in hiding for their lives without any food. Japan used to care more about this.

    WHY do we have to read about this daily come summer?

    Exactly! Next will be a flash-flood tragedy involving families camping on a riverbed, followed by more people drowning in heavy surf, nearly all of which could have been avoided with an ounce of forethought. It happens every year, despite (or maybe because of) the incessant danger warnings about everything anywhere you go in Japan.

    We don't know exactly what the father said to the son, but it's an inescapable fact that the boy didn't heed the intended message. The father didn't explain it forcefully or thoroughly enough, and that's going to haunt him forever.

    It takes 20-25 minutes to walk the 2 kilometers the rapist "forced her to follow him." Which part of Tama was this? Because the satellite photos show an awful lot of homes there. And if these assaults have been going on since 2010, what have the cops been doing about it?

    Not a lot of meat on the plate here, JT. All "drugs" are "synthetic." And no, marijuana is not a "drug," it's a plant, with proven medicinal value. The usual method is to include facts in stories.

    Superb is not available on the Japan App Store, and it only covers Los Angeles at the moment, so I fail to understand why it's talked about here now.

    Is there just an overabundance of funds for stupid research these days? Wasn't it just month or two ago that another group of nitwit researchers thought that Twitter would reveal proof of aliens living among us?

    Throw some cash my way and I'll conduct a study about how not using Twitter has not affected my life.

    What utter nonsense! This is the sad state of journalism today, where a non-issue like this is played as news. This summit is about figuring out regional security, not Michelle. This was 10 minutes I'll never get back.

    Oh, come on. That last sentence is just comment bait! These Japanese Olympic athletes are meeting their Emperor and Empress to be congratulated in person for winning their medals, for crying out loud -- can you even comprehend what this must be like for them? Why tarnish this by introducing speculation about Masako? This is not about her.

    Faced with the sight of someone brazen enough to reach across the counter for the cash drawer, you grab the orange balls and retreat. The average joe in Japan is not equipped to stop this kind of crime. The cameras are working and the store has insurance. The right thing to do is to back the hell up, let the bad guy run right toward the height markers at the front door (so cops know how tall he is from the video footage), and then try to bean him with the splatter balls if you've got the aim. It makes a mess but you emerge unscathed.

    Or is that not common sense?

    What goes, or doesn't go, through these criminals' minds before they pull a robbery like this? Even without the cameras, he didn't give himself much of a headstart. The clerk got himself punched, and should have just pitched a couple of those ubiquitous bright-orange splatter balls at the robber.

    Among the first suggestions at the panel was a new fluffy yu-ru kyara mascot to dance and sing in order to calm the wild animals. The mascot's design and personality will well reflect the hearts and minds of the local community and serve as a friendly bridge between the poor farmers and the savage beasts who lurk in the forests.

    Yeah, not really, but conditioned reflex took over.

    The language of this article hides the truth about what happened on the ground in Ukraine and Crimea. This makes it sound like Russia invaded against the wishes of Crimea, which broke away overwhelmingly at the polls after the EUS-led coup to oust the democratically elected government installed a bunch of new-Nazis in Kiev. Facts are facts in this instance, and Japan is making a rather immature mistake. Clearly, Tokyo does not understand much about diplomacy.
