No global warming in Okinawa this coming weekend. It will be a record-cold weekend. Possibly with sleet.

He's lucky he's not in prison for a very long time. I thought Singapore was very strict regarding possession of illegal substances. I'm very surprised.

A major winter storm is expected to hit Okinawa! On Monday of next week temps may drop to as low as 6 Degrees C! This could be accompanied by strong winds as well. Now THAT is a major winter storm for Okinawa. Bwahahahahaha! For the rest of Japan - stay safe!!

Japan would be in national mourning if the same thing happened to AKB48. Everything would stop. TV schedules would change, there would probably be no school and government offices would close. But yeah, decent group compared the the "talentos" of Japan.

Wow, ill man. Hope he gets help.

Used to be that 99% of Nengajos were delivered on January 1st. Now you will be lucky to get some of yours by the 10th of January. I noticed this year (here in Okinawa) that there were no High School kids volunteering to deliver them. Only official postal workers. Maybe that's why the slowdown. Of course, more and more New Year's greetings are being done electronically. Facebook, Line, Twitter, etc.

Dang! What a stupid thing to do to a child! Where do they find these people? Geez! He'll likely get a light punishment because it was violence within his family.

I wonder if this is going to result in a civil lawsuit. Wrongful death suit. Wow! Terrible to see this happen.

You mean "breaking and entering". Yes, serious crime. Breaking into a school. Odd behavior.

Mochi would make a great weapon for use on the global war on terrorism. I don't touch the stuff and neither does my J-wife.

I fly in cargo planes for free! Much better and much more space. Okay, I'm being a little cranky, but yeah, must be a really nice ride but flying commercial really leave a lot to be desired. Wouldn't mind trying boarding one of those once, but I'm sure it will be cost prohibitive.

The Grinch perhaps? Still, theft is very bad. Didn't the perpretrator think of all the little kids looking forward to their Christmas cake? Even schools are serving Christmas cake for lunch on Friday. Coal in his stockings this year!!

Even when two cars "bump" into each other it makes a lot of noise. Now imagine a car smashing into an apartment building at that high speed at that hour when everyone is sleeping and everything is quiet. Must have thrown a lot of people out of bed. Wow! Lives lost big time here. Just before New Years too. Terrible way to end the year.

Wow! Seriously dangerous. Would have been really messed up had he choked to death on that. Glad he is okay. Heads are gonna roll over this, but then accidents do happen. Just a good thing it was not a deliberate act which I doubt it was.

Very bad that this happened and my condolences to the families of the deceased. Just thankful this did not happen here in Okinawa. They would be having a field day with us in terms of protests, etc. Be safe people!

Calling terrorists animals is an insult to animals. Animals kill strictly for survival/food/defense. Terrorists kill strictly because they terrorist thugs. They are lower than maggots!!!
