    Demanding money from a twelve-yr-old? This guy on some designer hallucinatory/deliriant drugs? That would explain his subsequent action.

    Wow!! This is sad. Attacking a 71 year old woman for money. As a regular he thought he was entitled to some form of returns and thought that was the best way to get it? I'm surely gonna be more on my guard, as I keep seeing this man at my door leering at me. Glad it wasn't fatal.

    Wow!! Black is truly a striking hue. Such a striking yet simple emblem. Truly the best Olympics' emblem I've seen so far. Good work Japan.

    The parcel was sent from Kentucky on June 8. She appeared to be in Japan on June 8th. Therefore, if someone sent it on her behalf she could plead ignorance, and take the stance that she did not know they would have tried to disguise the contents. Hmmm....then again, this isn't an OTC drug so she must have been fully aware that it was illegal to have it mailed. I don't condone wrong doings, but I kind of feel sorry for her.

    Still, she would be in a mess, as it has been disclosed that she did a health check after the incident, and was found not to be in need of that drug. It could have been for someone else or substance abuse. Maybe they will now check for the substance in her blood. Then again, the drug is available as a prescription drug in Japan, so availability for legal use shouldn't have been a problem. Hmmm....maybe this could be a blessing in disguise for her where her health is concerned. Shoganai.

    There goes the white privilege myth.

    Murderer...your heart must be hollow...how does it feel to take the life of another?

    They are old enough to understand the extend of their crime, even before committing it, and are capable of determining right from wrong. Most of these youths in Japan, are well aware that they can hide behind their age, so they do what they shouldn't be doing, just because it can be done with little consequences.

    **Black Sabbath Apr. 25, 2015 - 09:17AM JST Tons of children are abused and killed in wars started by Nato

    Cursed fermented soy beans**

    That cracked me up. Obviously you don't eat natto. I think it would taste better than Nato/NATO anytime, though.

    Okay...now down to serious business. The women who were abducted/lured and coerced into having nonconsensual sex cannot be referred to as 'comfort women'. That term is too mild and consenting. The women who were abducted and forced into having sex were indeed sex slaves.

    This matter is plain and simple. Abe should apologize, and it shouldn't be a comfort apology. He is the one who resurrected an issue that would have been forgiven but not forgotten, since at least 2001. From Wikipedia:

    In 1993, following multiple testimonies the Kono Statement was issued by Japanese Government confirming that coercion was involved in seizing the comfort women.[82][83] In 2007, the Japanese government made a cabinet decision, "No evidence was found that the Japanese army or the military officials seized the women by force." Shinzō Abe, the prime minister at the time, stated on March 1, 2007, that there was no evidence that the Japanese government had kept sex slaves, even though the Japanese government had already admitted the use of coercion in 1993. On March 27 the Japanese parliament issued an official apology.[110] On February 20, 2014, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said that the Japanese government may reconsider the study and the apology.[111] However, Prime Minister Abe clarified on **March 14, 2014 that he had no intention of renouncing or altering it.

    Prime Minister Shinzō Abe and most members of his Cabinet are affiliated to the openly revisionist organization Nippon Kaigi, that negates the existence of Japanese war crimes, including sexual slavery for the military.** Source Wikipedia

    Abe nullified all the apologies that were made before him. Only his heartfelt apology can psychologically help these women from feeling like wartime prostitutes.

    Wow! I'm always speechless with news like these. I try to put myself in their shoes in a worst case scenario, but still can't understand how they do it. I can only ask, "Why?" I wish I could be of more help.

    Have they found the gun yet, that she was holding to the heads of the panel of Japanese judges? The judges freely made their choice, so why is this young lady being verbally abused at all angles? Still, she must have been somewhat mentally prepared for this. It's somewhat sad though, that whenever she speaks she has to keep defending her nationality, and justifying her motives for entering the contest. Ariana, the haters gonna hate hate hate. It's a disEase. Shake them off.

    Ironically, she won out of a field of 69 or so beautiful contestants, and then we have some commenters here professing to pass more beautiful ladies on the streets every day. You ever seen some of these 'beautiful' women you pass on the streets, after the makeup is gone? I have. Not a pretty sight.

    The best woman athlete in history. Your humility is kind of ridiculous

    “I hope not,” she said. ” I would be how old? No, let’s pray that I don’t get to 12.”

    I'm looking forward to your future accomplishments.

    I assume you'd have to pack along a keyboard, which reduces mobility quite a bit.

    Should have on-screen keyboard.

    After watching this game, I have come to realize the psychological effects it may have on someone. Dodging those foods is an adrenaline boost, and to think you can actually get into one of those things (plane) and do the same is an appealing challenge.

    You don't have to be tough and brawny for that. Skills are essential too. I guess the game is appealing to the skills side of its target group.

    This would suit the funny video shows they have on Japanese tv. Wait, since this is a Japanese person don't think they would show it.

    Why Japanese people! Why! This is discrimination. It must be the person inside, as this mascot is no fatter than the others. If you're fat, you're not welcome to the frat, get your tummy flat.

    Now is the blonde hair blue eyes era. Sometimes I yearn to see a natural Japanese. When I see a natural Japanese these days, I almost stare, because seeing one is so rare.

    Had a little go and it's just a platform game... I don't see anything sinister about it.

    You don't have the urge to enlist after playing it? Hmmm...I wonder what impact it will have on the intended audience.

    Is it just me or what? There seems to be a possibility of a major war in the near future. It's like something is quietly brewing. Hmmmmm....I hope it's only my paranoia acting up.

    A spokesman said no decision had yet been made on whether they would commercialise (sic) their tear-free onions.

    No tears, no onion. There goes the potency of this magical food.

    Homosexuality is not a genetic trait otherwise it would have died out a long time ago, since many homosexual don't procreate

    You have to think outside the box. You are well aware that homosexuality carries very negative stigmatization. There are many people out there who are trapped in heterosexual marriages, producing children, but would rather remain in that situation than admit they would rather be with someone of the same sex. Point is, not because you may see someone marry the opposite sex and seems reasonable happy, doesn't mean that person is not suppressing and denying his or her true feelings. Many married men and women indulge in discreet homosexual behaviors. Some use marriage as a cover because they do not want to be stigmatized.

    In my opinion, most people who lash out against homosexuality to the point where they want to kill people, are the ones who have been suppressing and denying, and to get rid of/kill homosexuals would be like killing that part of themselves. Even homosexuals are against homosexuality. Trust me the homosexual gene is real.
