I saw that contraption on the news and it didn't look safe at all. Personally, I would have never gotten inside that weird thing. Are there any relevant health benefits for going inside the decompression chamber besides spending a great deal of time deep underwater?

My heart goes to out to everyone involved in this unfortunate situation...the recovery teams, the victims, and the families.

Mt. Fuji is also a volcano, and everyone is still allowed to go up there. I was up there 3 weeks ago for the 3rd year in a row. I am not too concerned because I understand the risks (last eruption 300 years ago). Volcanoes tend to erupt whenever they feel like it, and the experts seem to show up after the fact.

I guess winter can't come fast enough with these spiders and mosquitoes around Tokyo.

I saw the wound on this poor dog on the news and I was furious. Hope they catch this person ASAP.

Here is some bonus material written in the Stars and Stripes:
According to an investigation by the Army Inspector General, Harrison referred the case to criminal investigators only after a reporter from Stars and Stripes spoke to the victim and inquired with U.S. Army Japan about the allegations. Previously, the general had ordered only an internal investigation of the allegations, in violation of regulations.
More than two months elapsed between the woman's allegation of sexual assault and her first contact with Army Criminal Investigation Command, the IG reported.
In the report, the IG concluded Harrison had:
failed to investigate allegations against a colonel he had known since the 1980s.
failed to treat the victim with dignity and fairness.
investigated the allegation himself instead of referring it to criminal investigators.
failed to remove the colonel from his position despite allegations of a pattern of misconduct.

I hope he don't catch that Miranda Kerr Japanese commercial when she hugs that singer from Exile. He may develop Bieber rage again.

Oh my goodness, that is horrible news. There are no safety features to prevent accidents like this. Parents need to sit down with their kids and warn them about the dangers of playing around apartment windows.

I had plan to go, but it was raining at my place at the time of the event. I was afraid they would cancel it, but I am happy everyone enjoyed it.

Kiss1969 yes you are correct. That commercial for the eye contacts is funny because that guy thought he was receiving a love look from the young lady, but she was squinting her eyes trying to read a sign near him.

If this creep attempts this tactic again, I hope he will find the wrong woman at the wrong time of month. She will make him regret that decision.
