    Another annoying 'fashion' trend thankfully dead or on life-support, along with loose socks, platform shoes, yamamba, etc.

    Pretty awesome thing for her to do! Wish I had that kind of loot to be able to do that kind of thing and not blink.

    Just weeks away from retiring and still doing boneheaded stuff. Now, he's really got something to be bereaved about. By the way, just what does it mean to be ''rumbled'' as written in the article? Does it mean ''exposed?''

    Don't care about figure skating but at least I (probably) won't have to hear Hanyu's name every 10 seconds or see his face on every domestic channel 24/7 for the next month.

    What was the criteria used in determining what stalking is? Was it just these people's feelings that determined this or was it based on real evidence? I can tell you a situation back in the early '90's where a slightly unusual girlfriend practically invited that behavior due to her own strange behavior: we had been going out a few weeks but one day, out of the blue, she wouldn't answer the phone or open the door. Last weekend everything was fine but now I'm getting the cold shoulder? Went to her place a few days in a row and talked through the door but there was no reply and I eventually gave up. She could easily claim I was stalking her but, believe me, I was not as I didn't even know we had broken up. She's probably someone's psycho ex-wife now.

    Sabotage? Hijacking? There was no communication from the pilots as to any type of trouble so they may have been under duress. Could have also been like the one in Greece where the pilots were unconscious and therefore not able to contact the control tower. Very tragic. Condolences to the families and RIP to all the lost souls.

    'Deliberating how to punish?' He should have been fired as soon as he admitted to doing such a horrible thing.

    Surveillance camers were hopefully around and will lead to the capture of those responsible. RIP.

    The take probably wasn't enough to offset the cost of planning these heists.

    Truly one of the greats, and also one of my heroes. Not many men of his stature left out there. RIP, sir.

    There’s a bit of an overbelief in technology as a solution, even though everything we have learned demonstrates that people’s own insights and instincts are really what makes a difference, and technology in fact makes us a bit more vulnerable,”

    So true, but few people seem to believe that.

    Yes, it really is common and I've also witnessed the same thing a few times (most recently in a department store, and not even on the escalators). You mention the broad demograpic but every single male I've seen doing it has been a perfectly normal-looking salaryman in his thirties (suit, tie, spectacles, briefcase, the works). What is wrong with these people?

    I saw one guy hanging around the steps near the food court in MinatoMirai a couple of weeks back and was about to shoo him away when he ran up the stairs. There seems to be a good amount running around. Never acquired the needed social skills to actualy talk to women and go on dates or something.

    So, once again, the point is to try to tout how much better Japan is at something. Do they ever give this a rest? Can't even watch a TV show without some 'talent' spouting off at the mouth about how everything is so much better here. As I write this, my one and a half hour flight to Hokkaido is about an hour late. I would have taken the shinkansen yesterday evening but it was a bit pricey and the last one was leaving at around NOON, which is way too early for someone who finishes work in the evening. Not very convenient, it seems. They didn't address that angle in the article but I'm sure they could find a way to explain it away and show me how it is more convenient than anything else.

    Fargo was great. They should have gotten the Coen Brothers on this too. Rinko Kikuchi seems to be one of the very few Japanese who can handle complex character roles in Hollywood movies.

    No need to bash ''America'' over something that happened in a small city in Okayama. I lived in one of the worst neighborhoods in the U.S. back in one of its worst periods and my junior high graduation had absolutely no incidents. It was a joyous occasion which I still remember fondly. Yes, Japan is much safer, has less crime, the kids give less trouble, etc. It's OK to highlight those, as is frequently done on these news sites, but there is no need to bring America into it. At least not in this case.

    Not going to happen in Japan, especially not with their love for bluefin. Although, they didn't write all the names of the chefs in the article, I am willing to bet no prominent Japanese ones were at the gathering.
