    she wanted to donate the tickets but was too shy to do so directly, so she pretended to find them in an elevator

    I think it's very interesting; for better or for worse, this is how Japanese society influences the way people think here. "The nail that sticks out gets hammered down"... in this case, "the nail that sticks out even for a good reason..."

    If the defendants can't be tried as adults, then let their parents take the punishment.

    Poor kid... can't imagine how much pain and suffering he endured... too much for a 13 yr old... and no one to turn to for help.

    I wonder what the English street name for these drugs is? ...just curious to see how "dangerous" of a drug he had.

    OK, gun-lovers don't think more background checks will change anything.

    But if they have a clean record then they can still buy guns, so why not give it a try?

    I can't believe I'm defending Obama, but I think his point is that the situation is desperate, and if expanding background checks can prevent even one more mass shooting, then it's a positive. I don't see any great solutions from the NRA.

    Beyond that, I find it interesting that Aichi leads the way in traffic deaths with, ahead of Osaka and Chiba. And that Tokyo "only" had 161.

    I think Aichi, and even Nagoya has a poor public transit system and coverage compared to Osaka, Chiba, and Tokyo, resulting in more cars on the road.

    Well, to put a positive spin on this, at least we're only hearing about isolated incidents now. A few years back, this was an epidemic, and we would only hear about how many cases of the "ore-ore" scam on the news.

    They may not be the best, or certainly te biggest athletes there, but they were the best players and team.

    That's because being the biggest athlete has nothing to do with baseball so it doesn't even need to be mentioned. Congrats Japan!

    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.
