    Haruku Sanada, a high school student in Osaka, said, “I fell down the stairs. I’m worried that I may become unaware of what’s going on around me when I play the game.”

    And this is what is wrong with a lot of today's youth... they just can't help themselves however they get quite angry when we don't give them responsibilities that give them more freedom. Clearly they can't handle that.

    Queue the line ups at the hospitals for 'go' related injuries and people complaining of trespassers on their property or in places where the general public shouldn't be wandering into.

    A runway was closed at one of Tokyo’s main airports Monday after a Hawaiian Airlines jet punctured its tires while making an emergency landing, forcing the cancellation of some domestic Japanese flights.

    Pretty sure there was nothing sharp on the runway that caused ALL eight (8!!!) main gear tires to "puncture". Perhaps the word 'burst' would have been a better choice. Hard braking and doing so with an aircraft at maximum landing weight for emergency reasons can lead to tires overheating and the safety plugs on the wheels blowing out to prevent the tires from exploding and causing severe damage to the underside of the fuselage and wings which could lead to a ruptured fuel line/tank, hydraulic lines, electrical wires or even control surfaces.

    All these idiots do is speculate about this and that with no real idea of what they're doing except driving markets up and down because of their stupid, baseless speculation.

    Idiots playing the market as day traders and armchair traders are causing massive up and down swings in all markets from commodities to currencies and this in turn is affect us all in the short term as you can see daily if you need to buy something on web. One day it's a deal to get something and the next day the exchange rate kills it. Just stop monkeying around with the markets and keep your "the sky is falling" stories to yourselves!!! Please.

    edojin, I was thinking the same thing. Clearly China is now wasting resources on JT and in Japan pretending to make it look like poor little China is being picked on. Maybe China thinks people outside of China can be brain washed as easily as the Chinese within its borders. Proof of that is this silly article written by Xinhua.

    I wish China would just shut its collective piehole, fix its own problems within its borders and quit trying to steal land, ideas and technology from everyone else once and for all.

    Japan's laws are so confusing now more than ever. You can't buy things that are bad for you until you're 20 which is supposed to be the legal age because apparently before that in Japan, you aren't old enough to make informed decisions that will affect your life but now you can vote starting at 18 years of age and possibly screw up more than just your own life. I'm sure social media won't affect any of those votes...

    I have NO DOUBT that China WILL START WORLD WAR III as soon as it thinks it has the weapons in place to do so or China starts to crumble from within (more probable). It won't be a conventional war of past years but more of threats to call in debts from the USA which it pretty much could ruin and yet doing so would kill the hand that feeds it. That would force stage two of the war to which China would attempt to kill foreign powerhouse countries by damaging their infrastructure i.e. power grids, cell tower grids etc. via hacking and EMPs. Boots on the ground won't happen until it's clear they went too far but if you really think about it, those financial boots on the ground have been happening for almost a decade now in the form of money laundering using real estate as the mode of choice. Those that refused to call a spade a spade for fear of being labelled racist are now realizing they've been duped and are becoming worried they waited too long.

    It's time to STOP China in its tracks as we all know what they are doing and the longer we leave it unchecked, the stronger the uneducated bully will become.

    Funny that it was mainly the old folks who won't be around to see the mess they voted yes for, the dim witted (lack of education) that have no clue why they really voted yes, the racists which have tunnel vision and the DOLE riders that blame everything on anything but themselves.

    If the UK can vote this way, one can only imagine what will happen come election day in the US this year.

    Well, when China has only spent MOST of its money and effort copying all of the world's super computer companies' intellectual property and technology with no regard for laws, what would you expect?

    Of course I am not shocked that China is where they are now with all the stealing and corruption that goes on in that cesspool of a country but that house of cards is built on a very corrupt foundation which has been showing signs of crumbling apart for the last eight years.

    No matter how you look at it, the whole world is going to feel the collapse of that Chinese house of cards. In fact major cities around the world are already feeling it as their citizens can no longer afford to live in the cities they grew up in as the Chinese buy up all the homes to hide their ill gotten gain thus driving up local prices beyond what anyone can afford. Retirees are being taxed out of their homes as the assessment price of their property more than doubles and they can't afford to pay the yearly property taxes on their fixed retirement pension.

    In the news recently in Vancouver, Canada it now only has five (5!) houses left on the market below one million dollars and what once was a noticeable line of where the one million dollar houses were has been lost to the two million dollar line which has only happened in the last eight to ten years. Coincidence? Only a fool would say so. The corruption of China has been spreading to the rest of the world and now we are all paying for it half way around the world.

    Another sign of Chinese corruption in the real estate markets.

    To top it all off the Chinese government is expanding its military and getting ready for war. Those that deny that are clueless as to the reasons but all one has to do is look into the history books to see that history is yet again about to repeat itself unless something is done quickly to stop it.

    “The news is so sad and true,” Jennifer Allen said in a statement.

    The dumbest statement EVER!!! It's sad because it's true?!? DUH!!!

    Yelchin “was killed in a fatal traffic collision early this morning,” she added. “His family requests you respect their privacy.”

    I have no idea what to make of that statement. The 'other news' outlets stated that Yelchin was simply killed because his vehicle had started to roll on his steep driveway and he ended up getting pinned between the car and the base of a mailbox. What collision and in what traffic. Please don't make up crap that didn't happen. It was at best a freak accident IF say the hand brake had been applied and failed. No one knows and won't until an investigation is done.

    Rest in peace Anton.

    That mindset that the Russian government has seems to be one quite common in the country of not giving too much of a damn to how their actions affect others. All one has to do to see how everyday Russians treat each other is to view unscripted youtube videos of driving.There seems to be a high disrespect for others' personal space and safety as if they were stating I am the most important person here. Not all of Russia is like this but enough are that those who aren't either adapt or get crushed. Sad way to live.

    Just think, go back in time only 15 years and just say that you were shocked when you googled yourself and got no results. Yeah, people would be looking at you for a TOTALLY DIFFERENT REASON!!! It still makes me laugh when someone says the googled themselves and were surprised by the results. Yea, my head may be in the gutter but can you blame anyone for that?

    I worked on the set of 21 Jump Street back in the 80's and Johnny Depp was by far the most mellow actor I have ever worked around. Not saying the phone throwing incident did or did not happen but I'd have to wonder at the state of a person's mind which would go and get married knowing that they were in an abusive relationship beforehand. Also, she got Depp into a load of trouble in Australia forcing the their dogs in on the trip. Pretty sure Depp could have lived without the dogs while filming was going on. The more I think about it, the more I feel sorry Mr Depp.

    The only 'drills' that should ever be practiced at school, work places and even home are for emergencies depending on your area such as fires, flooding, earthquakes, tsunamis and the like. Terrorism of any sort inside of the USA should be the last thing that children should ever have to deal with.

    I find it odd that the USA spends so much money in other countries trying to stop wars, killing, maiming and suffering and the parallels between aboard and at home are so similar but yet no one in the USA is ever willing to realize it.

    Clearly the whole world looking at the USA and shaking their collective heads in disgust is NEVER going to have any effect. Maybe the world should invade the USA, capture the NRA, the right wingers, gang bangers and other gun nutters and force a new government upon them that blocks civilians from pretty much owning guns and automatic weapons. I wonder if that would make the world a safer place? ;)

    I have NEVER seen sooooooo many cops on the beat in Tokyo. This past five days I couldn't walk a block without passing at least two cops and in some areas they were two to a corner and two or three walking mid block. At Shinjuku Station and around the underground walkways just around Shinjuku alone there must have more cops than all the cops walking the beat in most mid sized western cities. Funny thing was they had their hands full being roving information counters helping tourists and the like.

    Sushiro is always better for quality, freshness and flavour than Kura or Kappa I have found and it doesn't matter at what time of the day you go. Kura can be quite bad later in the evening when the dinner crowd has died down.
