....unemployed? really, how many unemployed people are there in japan? omg its such a shock! is she the only one?! (sarcasm) very uneeded informaiton to tell the whole world shes unemployed. why not tell us her hair color and bra size while your at it. >8(
but for the woman, she should be properly punished.. that was attempt at murder.. and yet they only took it as 'oh i didint try to kill him' lady grow up, you cant handle the children. you disapoint and both sicken me.....thou it does make me wonder why he japanese are so leniant as to let the children suffer and barely punish the adults..

Ishihara may know what he's thinking.. but i hope he knows the PRos and cons of doing this.. chances of war with china over a small peice of land and having th U.S be dragged into this to try and calm both down... -headdesk- ...last thing we all need is a war over a small bit of territory..

......she looks like a creepy pin up in a playboy magazine... personally im not a fan of what shes wearing or how shes poseing.. the light doesnt compliment certain features. the undergarments she's wearing could have been diffrent but still given her a faint classy look. personally i give it a 6 out of 10 ....just cause im bound to see this in a bunch of 'adult' picture sites

first thing i said when i saw this was 'what the fluff?' who in there right mind would harm an innocent child? i mean sure there annoying and disrespectful but you dont hit them. especially in the face, thats low and cruel. i do hope the police are investigating this and find out the cause... because that man deserves to rot in jail...

men of thouse ages should be home at that time... but the matter is, they should have more police men patrolling the areas more where these attacks are happening. Police officers, where are you in helping to protect your civilians?
but matters little, the kids will hopefully be caught and properly punished for there crimes. Least nobody was killed, thats always a blessing.

......hmm alot of odd stuff like this has been showing up alot. just alot of the older generation fed up and not wanting to deal with the younger generation. he could have been drunk or just having a bad day, but for the fact he abused a child and could have caused blindness (thank hyne he didint) justice still needs to be served to this sad excuse of a man.

'please keep it a secret' oh girl... wrong thing to say completely.. but then again i suppose you didint want to lose your male audience...thou hey, dont blame the wife if she finds out your cheating on her and she cheats on you back.. >_> dont blame her what so ever cause you werent devoted~ blame the actress who said it was okay, but to keep it a secret so you can get a disease from your mistress and pass it along to your wife. ^^

....sadly it all could have been avoided if doctors took more interested in trying to help the girl instead of only being interested in money.. then again the parents went really that old so why would they believe a spirit was in their poor daughter? R.I.P little girl, may the next life bless you with good fortune

hahaha.. i dont really give a damn if the incident is happening in japan or in the usa or whereever else. its a cruel act to such a defenseless animal. if it needs to be done, at least find a humane way or keep dolphins and breed them in a secure secluded area where nobody has to know its happening. (im not encourageing it.. im just saying if you must do it.. do it humanely )
As for the man himself.. he's not doing this to make money fame.. he's just showing the world a cruel act against animals. he's not blameing all of japan, he's making it to one single part of the area. he still encourages tourism and everything to japan..... he's not like whale wars, guys and jumping on boats and all kinds of crap. >_>

....personally i am both disguested and mortified by what i saw in 'the cove' .. im not going to lie that i actually cried while watching the dolphins be killed and the whole area turning red with blood.. i still dont understand as to why the goverment will feed it to the peole when dolphins have high dosage of mercury running throu them.... aside from that i still find japan wonderful and i still wish to visit it for the culture and history. =3

so disapointed with how it was runed.. radiation is nothing to mess with, you must always take the highest level of concern and worry. Take the actions nessacery and evact the area's that you think are inbfected.. and then Evacuate another 30+ miles. Shameful how this ended up, people going to live their lives with radiation poisoning and Cancer? Japan just gave its own people a death sentance for now being papred and having the right people do the right job..
People should be fired, companies should be sued.. Shame on the Goverment for not protecting its people like its sapost to. Dishonerable and disgraceful.
