I don't get either side of this argument. If you are afraid of your child being touched, don't send them alone on a plane. If you are that embarrassed and inconvenienced by simply having to change seats, don't get on a plane. Seems there's much more people flying these days than really should be.
Posted in: Airlines Qantas and Virgin Australia are under fire for their policy of moving men from seats next to unaccompanied children, causing humiliation to the passengers being moved. The airlines say the policy reflects parents' concerns. What are your views on this?

Lol. Your guy's tax system is so unnecessarily complicated.
Jonathan HuntAug. 13, 2012 - 10:10AM JST
Overall medals? We can't just use whatever quota we want to measure success. Seven gold medals is extremely dismal for a country of 127 million people that all have the opportunity to play sports as children.

Lol. You guys sure seem to hate the police in a country where the crime rate is so low you'll probably never experience it.

Wolfpack, the Japanese team was probably the most under-performing at this year's games.

Wow. Why is it that just the mere mention of anyone over the age of 50 will cause the commenters on this website to go beserk?

When did CHILDREN become a buzzword for people to lose their minds? We're not struggling to populate our world anymore, children are no more valuable than the countless others who are in trouble for whatever reason.

Who says you get to dictate the price of melons? If you think they're overpriced, don't buy them.

Cricky, then let's demolish all bars, clubs and izakayas then. Oh, and every Dunkin' Donuts and McDonalds while we're at it. Let's take down every pachinko palour, video game store- hell, shopping's an addiction for some people, right? Goodbye, malls!

Ranger_Miffy2, how about those same workers who lose their jobs when business tanks because smokers decide not to visit anymore?

tmarie, some people like to smoke. That is why there's areas in which they can smoke while doing the things that people like to do, including drink coffee. If you don't like it, go somewhere smoke-free.

Strong yen? Try weak USD. I'm getting hammered by the conversion rate for NZD at the moment.

Because it's a supermarket? A big box that exchanges food for money? Who cares about the name of the box?

That's the problem with fire, buggerlugs. It's easy to tell the people who've never experienced a major one before because they always say what you just said, as if fire gives you the option to save anything. At a certain point, attempting to get your kids out WILL kill you, no questions asked.
