    I was absolutely flabbergasted when I read that they're going to be held in Aug.

    Think about how hot and humid it is right now. That's when these Olympics are going to be held.

    Do you really want to be standing for long periods outside in this?

    If they use this water sprinkling system it's going to cause a lot of hot humid air to rise.

    Nothing wrong with holding them in Oct like they did last time. They were such a successful Olympic games.

    I dig badminton. Gambling guy is out but the others on the team are stepping up to the plate.

    If any of them come up short of Gold, I hope they don't stand on the awards stand with a dark depressing scowl on their faces like the jukoka did the last few days.

    ...the woman managed to chase after him and catch him with the help of a policeman, who arrested him on the spot.

    I hope this slow poke learns to run a little faster if he's ever allowed to fight fires again.

    For where baseball could be played, the J-pro teams could start a week early at the beginning of the season and end a week later at the end of the year. They can then take two weeks off during the Olympics and enjoy a few beers and watch the events.

    He wants Japan to pay more to fund US's hegemony in Asia? Pay more to the colonialist to occupy land in their own country?

    Without these bases the US wouldn't have much of a military footbase in Asia.

    Trump should try and crash a JHS world history class and learn a little something.

    Shigeru Hirose, the teacher at the head of the school’s baseball club, **apologised for the incident****, saying he misunderstood the specifics and only thought to let her on the field as she had been working incredibly hard with the team throughout the year.

    He should've never apologized for this old, outdated and sexist rule.

    If he were a "real teacher" he'd have refused and backed up his little manager's right to be on the field.

    How disappointing it is to still have a high school baseball commission this antiquated and sexist. What a huge disappointment it was to read this article.

    If they build it that would make two nuclear plants close and just upwind from Matsuyama. Ikata and Kaminoseki.

    ....his car had been broken into and a bag containing 300,000 yen stolen from the back seat.

    3 grand in the back seat. That's a hell of a lot of money to leave lying around. It seems quite a lot of people in Japan do.

    It looks more and more like the THAAD sys. deployment is necessary.

    Sorry, China, you aren't doing much to rein in your boy.

    If they are trying to fly their nuclear bottle rockets low to avoid detection then maybe some more US weaponry and presence N/E Asia is necessary.

    I think this country needs less guidelines and more response and action.

    Geez, this killer wrote and informed the government and authorities what he was going to do.

    We occasionally take our kid out of nursery school and we usually call but a couple of times we've forgotten to make the call to the school. They don't call us that day to check why but do call if it happens two or more days in a row.

    Since all nursery school parents take their kids to school the schools don't worry if it's a kidnapping or anything like that hence they don't call to check.

    There's less demand and manufacturing going on but I'd love to see gas prices fall MUCH further here in Japan. Especially since they've (Abe ilk) raised my kei car tax by about 90%.
