A lot of women push those things like them having a baby is the most important thing in the world and everyone else should get out of their way immediately. I can't remember how many times I've been almost run over or hit on the leg by one.

This is all about losing out on the almighty dollar - the money from China. Visit it if you want, kid. I personally hate the history behind the shrine but I still want to visit the place.

This ruling is ridiculous but it better cut both ways. Actually, it could cut quite a few different ways.

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.

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.
