The south Java tsunami (17 July 2006) was caused by a relatively small earthquake (magnitude 7.7) that generated a 0.5 metre tsunami. This tsunami inundated the coast with run-up heights of four meters in some places, killing over 600 people.

I always thought Beaujolais Nouveau is used as a sampler for what the rest of the region's wine will taste like that year after maturation. Don't understand why it's so pricy....

A friend of mine was almost arrested for leaving FAKE brass knuckles in his carry-on. Maybe this guy paid off security somehow to get through??

@Alan Doing that in Germany will get you a ticket. Fight the urge to teach them a lesson and get out of the way. 1 reckless driver is better than 2.

So if I download a movie, Sony or whoever loses 1800yen and I spend 2 years in jail and the government foots most of the bill? Sounds like a great plan.

I totally agree that bikes are in an unfair position. No bike lanes and most roads have no room for them, and no where near enough parking anywhere for them. They need to address this first...

Last I heard, pavement riding is illegal (unless indicated) and carries a 50,000yen fine as does drunk driving etc... Seems like cops need to spend less time in the Koban and more time on the streets enforcing existing laws for bikes AND cars than creating redundant rules like number plates.
Plus, I think children need to have the rules of the road ingrained in them on a yearly basis at school to prevent violations and cops be given more power to punish violators.
