Agree with LostinNagoya. It happens, no need for pandemics. Good time to go out and get some exercise or go Geocaching.

Spot on, Yubaru! Good comments. I live in Okinawa and am vacationing in Germany right now and am staying in my German friend's house right now. I'm freezing in her house because she says it's very expensive to heat the whole house even though they have built-in radiator units under the windows. So, central heat, though nice, doesn't always solve problems. My number 6 request would be to outlaw the phrase "eeeeeh?" (ええええ-)

On an airplane airborne between Kadena Air Base, Okinawa and Naval Air Facility Atsugi. I was on a vacation hopping on military flights to Germany but never made it past Atsugi. I hopped back home out of Atsugi making stops at Misawa Air Base And Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni. Was able to get a good view of the devastation before my day was done. Will never forget this day.

I'm sure he flashed his hazards just before mowing him down as is the case when truck drivers notoriously run red lights. Bad day for all involved.

People keep asking "Where did they find a cicada this time of year?". The article clearly states this happened in July. Plenty of cicadas in July.

Reserve AKB48 for entertaining young preteen and teen girls, for them they set a good example; but for the world to have to see them might be an embarrassment. I say for at least part of the ceremony, send in the best EISA performers from Okinawa so that people can hear and see something nice about Okinawa.

Never negotiate with terrorists, exterminate them. They don't play by rules and neither do cockroaches. Time to get out the can of RAID.

Yes, drugs are really bad but execution for drug possession, production, transfer, sale just doesn't make sense. Don't get the logic. If the death penalty worked, then why are their still drug issues in these countries? Life sentence is more like it.

I used to get stacks of them, now I get very few of them. People don't even use e-mail anymore, everything is via Facebook or LINE. The some thing goes for Christmas cards. I sent out over 20, I received 6. A real shame!
