Interesting. I never knew they had no warning. Kind of makes sense though when you think about it as Anthony mentioned. However, if this process prevents the victims family from witnessing the execution then it might need some adjusting.

Time to rid the airwaves of that confounded government controlled media. I understand that Japan is not America but a government poluted airwaves chokes out the true voice of the people. (however, America has gone a little bit too far in their recent move to rid PBS and Big Bird). I was really looking forward to seeing PSY on New Year's Eve. Hopefully, PSY gets invited to Times Square and I wish that Dick Clark was still here to enjoy the show.

You can get a way with murder in Japan so long as you nicely place the body in a meaningful and respectful way like you just could afford to pay for a real funeral.

I'm thinking he didn't completely severed his member. He probably just cut a few rings of 4skin kind of like those fried calmari rings.

Although I like Obama, I can't argue with the folks claiming it to be staged. Anyways, who cares? Let's see if Mitt's team can pull off one better.

yep. The author Karen Masuda is only using this to make all the other women non-candidate, throw-outs thus bumping up her own datability value. That's why I take the similar approach by hanging out with nerdy guys to make me look cooler. However, it doesn't seem to be working yet. I'm starting to worry that maybe I am at the very bottom.

If a jet is so great that it can cost $40M, then it must be backed up with a full replacement warranty from who ever builds it. If not, then it's just a $40M piece of crp.

Yes, probably an attempt at harry carey. Hopefully this is the case so we can ease our fears of some psycho running loose. I guess we will wait to see what the JT follow-up coverage will be on this especially since his nationality was headlined which may lead to the belief that this a crime of hate.

Yep. Those chumps should be sued for using Steve Irwin. Steve's family is too nice to make an issue out of it like from what I heard about Bob Marley's family who took the Japapanese whalers to court for using "Bob Marley & the Whalers" on one of their ships. After the court ruled in favor of the whalers and not the Wailers, the ship's captain decided to change the name to just "The Whalers." However, I heard that former fan club members of the both the New England & Hartford Whalers are attempting challenge the usage of the name. Attorney's for the Japanese whalers advised them to not use trade mark names and take a wiser approach like their anti-whaling counter-parts who use the names of real people. So now the captain of the whaler has decided to change the name of his ship to the "Gordie Howe."
