    Good to see some of these jerks are being caught. Tip of the iceberg though right?

    To the people downplaying the seriousness of drug trafficking: Not only does turbostat bring up a good point about overdoses, there are countless people (law enforcement, drug traffickers, and yes, innocent people) each year who are killed because of the drug industry due to enforcement, turf/gang wars, other illegal activities that support drugs, etc etc. Drug trafficking is far from being a victimless crime.

    Frungy, I was trying to say that regardless of a machine telling them that they are tired, when people become drowsy while driving, they will either do one of two things: Pull over and rest, or keep driving while trying to wake themselves up.

    The comments came as part of a discussion about the announcement by AKB48's producer Yasushi Akimoto regarding his desire to create a Japan48 group to perform at the 2020 Olympics.

    You wouldn't have to "create" a Japan48 group, all you need to do is pick some random girls up off the street... is that the kind of talent/culture that Japan wants to showcase to the world? I can chug a beer and break some chopsticks with my but cheeks at the same time... can I perform at the olympics too?

    Correction: a vibration or a voice message...

    Hate to play devil's advocate, but a vibration or music playing on the cell phone will not wake me up when chewing gum, opening the windows, and loud music doesn't do the trick... and do I really need a machine to tell me that I'm sleepy?

    Let China toot their horn and flex their muscles. They will probably never start a war with Japan... I think this is all the more reason for Japan not to strengthen their military (beyond self defense).

    Makes you wonder how we would cope if the internet went down for a day... I guess people would split into two groups: one group would be stress-free, and the other would be stressed-out!

    If you look at the trends in global aviation over the past decade, costs and competition have been increasing while fares and airline margins have been falling...

    If competition is increasing, shouldn't you be doing something to reduce the costs to increase your margins instead of making the customer pay? If competition is increasing, shouldn't you be reducing your fares so that you attract more customers?

    If the gate malfunctioned, and the woman was trapped on the rail crossing, the first thing anyone should do is look to see if a train is coming. If a train was coming, she should have driven through the gate to save herself and children, but she didn't... so that means there was something blocking her way (like another car, probably in front AND behind her), which means she probably entered the rail crossing without confirming if there was ample room to escape ahead or behind the crossing. I completely agree we shouldn't speculate, but logic also speaks for itself, wouldn't you say? Bless the little ones, and I really do feel for the mother, but it sounds like an avoidable accident. The mother will have to live with this, regardless of a gate malfunction.

    This makes the news?

    Yeah, makes you wonder how JT picks the articles doesn't it? This isn't even local news. More like community gossip... yet here I am commenting on it!

    The patrol car spotted the two girls on the minibike go through a red light at an intersection, make a right turn and then go the wrong way along a street.

    Police said the patrol car had its siren on and after a pursuit of about 600 meters, the bike crashed into the pole.

    Sounds like these girls would have been seriously hurt or killed anyway without the cops chasing them.

    SuperLib: I too am on the fence, however, I believe that several of the women (or at least one) did go to the police and/or other people for help but it fell on deaf ears mainly due to the fame and persona of Bill Cosby.

    Well you can't have the best of both worlds. You can't have Japanese food being famous and popular around the world without it being changed. On one hand, you can "localize" washoku to suit the taste buds of most locals, but I like it when some Japanese restaurants in America have 2 menus; a local one and a "washoku" one. BTW, I hate it when they bring you miso soup with a spoon immediately after you sit down at your table.

    Correct me if I am wrong here, but "The right to bear arms" in America was meant to defend the country against intruders... not to out-gun and kill the people who protect and serve us, right?

    A typical Japanese jiji!

    Really? I honestly don't think that "typical" people end up in the crime section of the news but maybe that's just me...

    Smith: I have seen child-proofing at most Japanese households I have visited. Go to any baby shop or 100 yen store and you'll find them (Electrical plug covers, table corner covers, cabinet door locks, window and door latches, etc.). As bicultural mentioned, they sell well. There are always going to be people who miss out on the parenting 101 common sense course, in Japan or any other country. Please by all means help your friends out with a little advice...

    3 problems with the Toyota Mirai and other hydrogen cars. The hydrogen costs significantly more than the gasoline that hybrid cars use to go the same distance, the hydrogen stations are far and few between ( almost non-existent as of right now ) and the Mirai is priced at around 7 million yen. Cripes!

    Serrano: I think every problem you mention has been identified and acknowledged by Toyota and the entire automotive industry... as gokai-wo-maneku and Yubaru say, that's probably why Toyota has strategically made this move in hopes to open up the market to reduce manufacturing and hydrogen fuel costs in order to make FCV's more affordable and appealing, thus, Toyota will capitalize.
