I think most people here didn't realize that she actually have two kids on this bicycle. There is a smaller child in the front wearing a bike helmet also. Her actions even make this situation even more dangerous.

Didn't notice my left eye. There's a huge difference between 3,000 and 48,000 yen change. Plus they have all your information because you paid your cellphone bill. Hello.

I've seen them sell Prime Deluxe Strawberries for 50,000 yen each and they are half that size. They are packaged in a private wooden box.

Authorities also say foreigners illegally fishing in Indonesia are partly responsible for massive damage to the environment due to the widespread use of explosives and cyanide.
Is destroying the boats another way of destroying the environment as well?

It's not a good idea for anyone to use any images of Godzilla without permission. Toho has a US law firm that will lay down a big hammer against you. It's a very well protected property.

After watching the news it looked like something went terribly go wrong with the driving. The pedestrian that was hit wasn't really near the kids. She was around the corner on the sidewalk on a bicycle. The car was stopped by those metal traffic barriers, and I think it saved her life and possibly others.

Why isn't the Sea Shepherd up North chasing down the Iceland and Norwegian Whalers? Seems like they have no opposition, or is it too much trouble for the SS to attempt to go up against real Vikings.

Over the past weekend a small drone crashed in a Matsuri and it nearly hit one of the participants in the ceremony. I knew this action would be taken sooner or later.

I had never heard of Mr. Sugihara until I come to Japan about 6 years ago. One day I was visiting the Wax Museum Exhibit up in Tokyo Tower and I stopped to read the biography on his figure. I said "OMG", how come this guy never received any credit in the history books for actually saving so many Jews? Japan may have been on the wrong side of history, but Sugihara's compassion made him a true hero for going against orders from his own country and also the Germans. Someone should contact Spielberg to make this movie. This story could be his next Schindler's List.
