    As the Ozzies say, If you want to drive in to the Outback, get a Land Rover. But if you want to drive in to the Outback and drive back out again, Get a Land Cruiser.

    And they like to accuse Korea of fixating on this subject... What possible good could come of this?

    The same Anri Takeda who claimed to be a descendant of Shingen Takeda, despite Takeda being a stage name - her real name is Suzuki. Real live wire that one.

    Metabolic rate is influenced by factors such as caloric restrictions (they tend to slow down the metabolic rate), sleep , ...... Another consideration is the conversion of excess energy into fat, which is regulated by chemicals such as insulin. Insulin levels vary widely depending on a range of factors such as sleep ......

    Newsflash. Sloth makes you fat.

    Nothing wrong with what OccupyTheMoon said, or this article. I'd take an active big eater over a low-cal couch potato any day.

    Downward trend has a bit to do with demographics but more to do with the improved safety of the cars on the roads. 20 years ago Japanese cars were made of tin (and a lot more fun to drive for it BTW) but now they have high tensile steel in the door frames and scuttle, proper crumple zones and bristle with airbags, ABS, ASC and now even automatic braking systems.

    What I want to see is not the fatality rate, but the accident rate.

    I very much suspect that there are now more accidents on Japanese roads per day than 20 years ago, but that less people are getting killed in them.

    So, the Chinese parliament now has no right to criticize South Korea's new ADIZ. Way to back yourselves in to a corner guys.

    Following the Snowden and Manning revelations nations around the world are forcing their governments to rein in the special powers they were afforded during the knee-jerk days following 9/11. Meanwhile, Japan gleefully marches in the opposite direction.

    The UK (both government and grass roots) sees Japan's $50,000,000 is raises the stakes to $130,000,000. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24970066 Almost 100 times more than the Greatest Power in the Region. Well done Great Britain.

    Big numbers until you remember that JP Morgan is giving $4,500,000,000 (nearly 3000 times more than China's donation) to a bunch of investors who gambled and lost.

    Priorities people. Priorities.

    LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is not "natural gas" and the jury is out as to whether it is a cleaner fuel than petrol or diesel. It is cheap though, thanks to vastly reduced taxes, which is why those in the know convert their cars to run on the stuff...

    "Pollution levels on Fuji have been monitored annually since 2007"

    Good job they didn't do that in the '70s and '80s when you couldn't see your hand in front of your face in Kawasaki and Tokyoites reminisced about the days when you could see Fuji from Shinjuku in winter...

    Way to blur the message Goto-san. As GG2141 says, it's not like the man isn't speaking the truth. Many of the towns on the Sanriku coast were ghost towns before the events of 3/11 and there has been more than a bit of opportunistic pork barrel profiteering by local govt.s and construction co.s since. But now everyone will focus on his captioned pic. of the old dear.

    the tsunami and the earthquake was an event that only takes place once every 1000 years, the last time being in 869

    Noooo.... Massive earthquakes and tsunamis hit the same region in 1896 and 1933.

    Fact and basis should be reported.

    Quite.

    I have taken out insurance for injury and damage my kids might cause... by being kids. It's quite reasonable, but I'll be checking the maximum amount payable tonight - I've got a feeling it's not 100M

    There's an upside. Next time you have a hard drive crash, just contact the NSA and ask for an image of their copy.

    "Tsuruga’s operator, Japan Atomic Power Co, rejected the watchdog’s decision about the fault and said it would continue its own probe in hopes of overturning the assessment. It has commissioned experts from around the world to conduct a study to challenge the watchdog’s findings."

    This word "commissioned"... it means PAID, right?
