You couldn't pay me to live in that area. A huge live-in death trap. Happens every year. Kids had no choice in where they would live and now so many gone. That place should just be left a desolate desert. Rest in Peace.

"In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will deploy from the ceiling up above. Kindly take the mask and place it over your mouth and nose and breath normally. Immediately deposit 33 cents for the first 3 minutes of oxygen and 19 cents for each minute thereafter. Exact change is appreciated."
Yes folks, this is what it's coming down to. The airlines should be regulated by their respective government the way it used to be in the United States. They are clearly ripping us off! I even hear that some airlines will start charging for the use of their lavatories! Are you kidding me?!
Posted in: Do you think airlines are sneaky about fuel surcharges, fees for extra baggage and other charges for various services?

Catch the perpetrator (or perpetrators) just like we catch fish with a hook and line! Terrible cruelty. Carp are beautiful fish.

And those are the "bear" facts. As cute as bears can be, they are very dangerous to humans. Sorry to read it had to be shot, but that's better than reading about children getting hurt or killed by a bear.

What's up with all these accidents involving little girls? I hope she will be okay. Geez. Safety standards at playgrounds/sportsgrounds gotta be looked after and enforced.

I don't know about his passport, but my passport specifically says that it is not valid for passage into North Korea. How does he get in? I'm sure he'll go home with the prisoner.

He'll plead innocent by reason of insanity. This will be another very, very long drawn out trial that we will all be sick of watching on TV. Very sad story though...lives stolen, lives abused, lives terminated.

"The heat is on"! I'm staying right here in Okinawa. Many people don't believe this but Hokkaido and Okinawa are (on average) the two coolest places to be during the long hot summer months!

The next time they move those missiles on to the pads, the world should not broadcast it. Just have our military forces be prepared to shoot them down but no one should glorify their move. It's just the attention the leader of DPRK wants. He needs to be ignored like a badly behaved kid in primary school.

Gun control anyone? When will guns in school end? I too hope he survives but the gun should have never been brought into that school. Could have resulted in another shooting rampage. No copycats please.

This case should be put to bed! She was tried twice, why a third time? Italy, get over it already! I personally think she had a lot to do with it, but it's too late. One life lost, no one won, but it's time to let this go. Amanda, stay home because you're only going to occupy much of the media's time. Stay home and carry on with your life. You were let go, so don't go back!

It wasn't even a cool-biz in Okinawa today either. Cold wind after the cold front moved through last night. Should be better by tomorrow.
