    I don't give a hoot if China censors everything in their own cesspool land but when the US and other nations censor their own productions to sell out and bow down to the Chinese then that's even worse.

    Sony and their ilk are perpetuating China's heavy handedness. Grow a backbone for godsake.

    It's allowing the Chinese govt. to dictate to other nations and peoples. I didn't vote in this totalitarian regime.

    Leave the finished products/movies alone. If they don't like them the way they are then they can stew and watch the crap they produce in their own country.

    I was watching it live when it happened and it was absolutely terrifying.

    A wave, just after he got knocked off his board, blocked the camera's view for about 20 seconds so you couldn't tell what was happening, whether Mick was dead or alive.

    I was so glad to see him climb up on that jet ski alive unharmed.

    This was the last thing anyone expected to see.

    The boy should be at an age where he is taking swim classes at school now.

    None of the elementary school swimming pools have deep ends.

    The deepest you'll usually find are pools that are 1.5 meters deep.

    Basically, this means no practice wading in water deeper than your body.

    Watching this on the news, the boy wrote many times specifically what exactly was happening to him.

    The teacher each time wrote back something asinine like "Let's ganbaro", "Let's enjoy and do our best in the class presentation" etc.

    Then when he wrote that he was going to commit suicide and that he had already found a place to do it, the teacher wrote back, "What's the matter? Is it school work? Club activities? ...."

    The clueless replies made me wonder whether she even understood the gravity of what the kid was writing. It was as if she was on automatic pilot. His please were so clear and desperate.

    I don't think there's anything wrong nor harsh with this punishment.

    There's no need to have an inquiry as to why the other teachers didn't intervene.

    Isn't Jingu-mae the entrance to Yoyogi Park?

    Couldn't it be they were actually in the park and the kid ran out of it and into the street while the dad had his back turned?

    The number of armchair parent quarterbacks that come out on JT and begin sharing their expertise on child supervision regardless of how little information is given is amazing.

    The posters condemning the mother for allowing Ren to play in the backyard at twilight, did you guys grow up never being allowed out in your yard?

    You can't confine a kid or keep him/her next to you 24/7 and still call yourself humane.

    Give this poor mom a break - I'm sure she tried her best and is going through hell.

    Hillary Clinton accused China on Saturday of stealing commercial secrets and “huge amounts of government information,” and of trying to “hack into everything that doesn’t move in America.”

    Basically telling it like it is. The question is, will she still have the guts to if she gets elected?

    Japan's voicing its frustration at having to deal with a compulsive liar.

    There's no way such a draconian dictatorship can't even find one person during this past year and half.

    Absolutely dragging their feet after gaining some concessions from Japan.

    He'll get out of jail, write a book about it, the Japanese public will buy it up and he'll get rich.

    The first was the best. Bring back slower but sensible, straightforward storytelling.

    The eerie music in the first also helped make it unforgettable.
