    If they put all murderers in solitary confinement and give'em a rope, we'd hear more news like this.

    I'm sure it's a matter of time before the truth is revealed. Whoever did it, solitary confinement for life with nothing but a noose in the room sounds reasonable to me.

    If he had no receipts, how did they know how much he spent?

    Basic accounting. The money was obviously missing and unaccounted for.

    In Japanese business, people with authority get cash advances out of the petty cash fund, fill out a form stating the business reason (get approval if necessary), go spend the money, then bring back the change and receipt. I don't know for sure if this is what this guy did (minus the receipts), but maybe something similar.

    Some people will come up with anything to make a buck. More power to them I guess, if it puts bread on the table.

    Only 15 years for taking a person's life, while knowingly and intentionally concealing an illness that could potentially severely impair his driving ability. This why Japanese laws a so screwed.

    First of all, 15 years is not so different from what you get for killing a person while driving drunk in the U.S. Secondly, even if the max sentence were 30 or 40 or 50 years, do you think this guy would have done anything differently? The law was already revised from the "loophole" 7 years to 15. You can raise the max sentence all you want, but stupid people still make stupid decisions so you're always going to have cases like this. Just like drunk driving; people know the risks and the punishment if you kill someone, but they still do it. I just think that blaming the law when some people are going to break it anyway is pointless.

    @The Principle: I hear what you're saying, but I still think stress itself is not the underlying reason. IMHO stress is a result of something else that an individual believes is a serious problem. These problems can be serious, like financial hardship, or maybe not so serious, like romantic rejection; but if the individual feels it is a big enough problem, then they will feel "stressed"..... then add to that stress, a failure to understand why it's wrong to hurt other people (ie.mental illness, or just a bad upbringing), and voila! ...you get this guy.

    He was also quoted as saying he had been stressed out, and had committed similar acts countless times before.

    Another pathetic excuse. How can "stress" be the cause to a premeditated act like this? Get drunk, take up boxing, go karaoke, heck, go to the soaplands! Basically what he is saying is "I'm a 29 year old loser who has no self control and cannot function in our society so please remove me from it".

    I know that ranting about it here will do nothing, but I'm really getting sick of the pathetic excuses these people can so shamelessly say on record.

    I wish the article told us what the explosions were from and where they occurred in the first paragraph, and not the 3rd last paragraph. The title of the article and most of the article leads one to believe that the explosions occurred inside the Toyota plant.

    If they make a car that matches the quality of their other products, I'd consider buying one.

    Really? Personally, my bar of expectations for a car is much, much higher than that of an iphone. Like Hawkeye said already, there are lives at stake when making/selling cars. You can't "update" mechanical safety issues with a car like you can update software security.

    Hopefully, the lawyer/victim will be able to recover and be a productive member of society again...

    But seriously, I feel sorry for him. No one deserves that for what he did.

    @Mirai Hayashi

    Actually, I was wondering that myself. Then I read this paragraph:

    Her film argues that whale meat provided food in the lean years after Japan’s defeat in World War II and was frequently served in school lunches. The practice has been phased out, and most Japanese these days though have never eaten whale or dolphin meat, no more than Westerners have.

    I'm not sure, but this paragraph hinted to me that she's not rebutting the portrayal of the dolphin hunt at the Taiji cove itself, but more so the portrayal that all Japanese people eat dolphin meat and consciously support what's going on in Taiji? I dunno... the article is not very clear on sending the director's message.

    It's all good to me. But then again, I grew up eating Japanese food so maybe that's why.

    Too bad; don't like the OUTCome, DON'T BOMB Pearl Harbor...simple. Live with the consequences.

    @WA4TKG: That is the most ignorant and belligerent comment I have seen in a long time, because it has NOTHING to do with this picture or its message.

    Who is your comment directed towards? The people in the picture? The Japanese Government? Do you really think they care about the outcome at this point in time? "Don't bomb Pearl Harbor"??? .......they DIDN'T bomb Pearl Harbor.

    ....wait, I get it now! You're directing this comment towards the Japanese Imperial Army, aren't you! You know, the ones who are dead now. .....or is it the tens of thousands of civilians who were killed by the bomb? Is that who your comment is directed towards? Or maybe it's their families who are alive today? Why don't you go to the Hiroshima city hall website and post your comment on there if you feel so strongly about it and feel it's necessary to voice your opinion?

    ...it's clear you people don't work in a corporate environment. Bonuses and pay increases are often directly connected to performance.

    @Akula: I do, and bonuses yes, but pay depends on individual performance.

    Charges dropped against 29-year-old woman arrested for killing 2 young daughters

    I'm speechless.....

    ...the presiding judge said the woman would not stand trial, but gave no reason for the decision...

    That's crazy!

    A quick wiki will tell you that the minimum age for capital punishment in Japan is 18, not 20. So this guy is certainly a candidate. Also, 9 juveniles have been sentenced to death in Japan since 1966. Logic/reason tells me that if 9 minors have been sentenced to death, there have been more that received lighter sentences, but not "walking free" or "without as much as a blemish on their record" like some of you say.

    Yup, good to hear. It'll be interesting to see how it affects Tsutaya (Japanese equivalent of Blockbuster Video in North America). It was unbelievable how quickly such a big video rental chain went down after the introduction of netflix.

    I agree with eradicating all of those.

    In addition:

    1) The youngest person has to drive

    2) Staying at work until the boss goes home

    3) Always bearing a gift when visiting someone

    @Spinnyd: Social security benefits COLA increase (Cost of Living Adjustment) has been around 1.3 - 1.4% for the past couple of years. Curious as to where you get 3% from?

    Also, if your wages went up every time your company posted profits, and in amounts which reflect those profits, then are you willing to pay your company every time they post negative profits? ....food for thought.

    Are they also going to ban pictures and D.O.B. on resumes?

    Out of the box wacky questions are very important for my purposes.

    @JapanGal: Huh???

    .......well, whatever "floats your boat" then. I just have to say that "out of the box" seems very different from "wacky". I think most people would be turned off, and wouldn't want to be hired by such a "wacky" company that asks "wacky" questions at the interview... but then again, maybe that's what you want: "wacky" people...
