    Is it me or am I reading all these up skirt pictures and other similar crimes constantly coming from government people!?

    Maybe... or, government people crimes are just more newsworthy than regular people crimes.

    ...In a country that touts itself as having respect for the elderly the reality seems to be much different.

    ... and there you go again, painting the whole country with the same brush based on what you see in the news. You do realize that horror stories like this make it to the news for one of two reasons: it's a RARE case that's newsworthy, or it's an epidemic and the public would want to know about it. I seriously doubt this is an epidemic.

    Here's an interesting article on the events surrounding Hiroshima, and it's co-written by Oliver Stone. Yes, that Oliver Stone.

    @Dan Lewis: Agreed.

    Also, is it me, or do the guilty ones always survive? I don't like to wish death upon anyone, but how tragic that the innocent one died and the guilty one survived...

    As a father, I can't help but think about what the @@@@ the husband has been doing this whole time. Probably nothing (other than work?) to support his wife.

    How come everybody here is assuming that the boy in the hospital is the bully victim? Maybe the boy in the hospital is the bully? There was a Youtube video once that went viral showing a school bully victim fighting back for the first time and beat the $h@t out of the bully, probably because he had so much rage pent up, and couldn't control his anger anymore. In this case, a few punches to the back and stomach normally wouldn't put somebody in the hospital, so for a brief moment, I pictured a chronic bully victim fighting back and losing control. Anyways, I guess it's all speculation at this point, but I hope the kid makes it.

    A total of 39 minors, or 2.4%, were victims of serious crimes such as abduction and rape.

    ...and the other crimes aren't serious? child porn? child prostitution? I think that should read "violent", not "serious".

    they probably need to name the animation in the interest of public safety.

    What good would that do? There are hundreds of cartoons showing "a character flying in the sky".

    bluenote1: There is no "Women's F1 racing" or "Men's F1 Racing". Therefore, everyone should at least be given a chance to race among professionals. As a "realist" wouldn't you agree that equality of the sexes doesn't mean you give a free handout to any one regardless of sex, but that you give everyone the opportunity to prove themselves regardless of sex?

    In Japan since it is an Isolated island culture there is little need to learn any foreign language to do your regular job or go about your daily life. Countries whose borders are touching have always had to use other languages to trade etc.

    Totally agree. Most of Japan will never get "better" at English because there is no motivation to.

    three prefabricated two-story chicken coops—approximately 3,000 square meters in area—were destroyed.

    Cleo: It's hard to say because the article also states the coops were "two-story". So does that mean the buildings took up 3000 sqm? or the living quarters on both floors of each building added up to 3000sqm? If it was the buildings taking up 3000sqm, then with 2 floors, living quarters may not have been as cramped as you say. Plus, depending on the design of the coops, there could be even more room (ie. each individual coop could have 2 or 3 levels)... all I'm saying is that it's hard conclude without seeing the actual scene.

    Thanks Fadamor. However, I am still not convinced that automakers including Google will take full responsibility; if a car is completely autonomous, wouldn't that mean every single accident (as long as the car was in motion), including fender benders and minor bumps and scratches would ALL have to be the responsibility of the manufacturer? Could you see any company agreeing to that unless their product was perfect?

    Stangerland, what you say may be true, but I'm just talking about the general human "stubbornness" element, and also the liability of it all.

    You can talk statistics and data until your face is blue, but many people (admittedly, myself included) simply won't trust a self-driving car, especially if the automaker won't be liable if something goes wrong. They'd rather take their chances and trust their own driving (control their own fate) and be responsible for their own accidents, rather than not know when or where some computer will end up killing them... I know, I know, mechanical failures can already cause traffic fatalities now, but the flip side to that is: if there are already mechanical failures in cars now, then self-driving cars will be vulnerable to the same failures, plus computer failures.

    Unless something has dramatically changed, people simply don't want to see the same type of tear-jerking documentary year in, year out. Has nothing to do with loss of empathy. We all still remember what happened and know what's going on.

    I think they are desirable for safety reasons, but I don't think they should be put on the market until they are absolutely guaranteed not to have issues or glitches.... probably won't be for a long time.

    Wc626: I really don't understand what you're bragging about. California? ...never heard of such a country.

    Anyways, wherever you're from, may the Rock Gods have mercy on your soul when they find out how self-centered and closed minded you are.

    Well, that's your opinion and I'll respect that... even though I disagree.

    Oh and btw, you said: "Japan has got it ALL WRONG" ??? Well, Japan is Japan. It's not wherever you're from.

    If you're looking at music through such a closed mind, then I'm sorry to say that YOU'VE got it ALL WRONG.
