I understand them thinking it may not be good for human consumption but it could have been put to a different use. The man who urinated into the reservoir should be prosecuted.

Wearing masks that cover almost their entire face (for no reason) wasn't enough, I guess. Now this. I say it all the time - this country should be called Land of the Rising Weird.

To conserve energy, I try not to move around a lot and also watch TV shows on how sloths do it.

In the U.S.government and military, this is the status quo. You have to show you used it all up in order to get an increase the following year.

Seems like hit-and-run incidents are just as common here as in many Western countries. If you are scared, that's understandable but running away will not help your case. With the proliferation of surveillance cameras , it's highly likely you will be caught. If it wasn't at a crossing, it is more than likely that the man was jaywalking so you would have that in your favor. This happens in New York and you probably wouldn't get charged. In Japan, I'm not so sure. RIP to the dead man.

Pretty tragic incident. It seems the woman may have run the light but further investigation is necessary. Hopefully, some cameras may have caught the accident. RIP.

I don't mind wild or exotic game and have tried some ostrich in Okayama. While no one else in my party liked it, I thought it was delicious. The meat in the picture, however, doesn't look like anything to crow over. You had to have seen that coming.

It used to drive me crazy when people peeled fruits that needn't be peeled. I turned blue in the face explaining the benefits of eating the skin and practically forced people to try it. Many people said the skin was bitter even before trying it but I seemed to have convinced a few of them. It's just something their parents told them and they refuse to give up. If you think goya tastes good, I don't see how you can hate apple skins because they are "bitter."

Go to the Caribbean or East Indies and you can pick mangoes from almost any grove, pay a dollar for four and get better flavor. That's Japan: pay extra for style with very little substance to show for your money.
