Not true Supey, there's this big, huge in fact, thing called: Chance. It increase over time. Never rule it out. Especially when you're thing that lives for a mere 70 years-ish, seriously, what DO you know?

The IOC may want to reword it's recent progress report; as for the olympic themselves, it's an omnishambles of a rip off event.

@Supey, if there's one thing nature keeps doing it's dumping our 'sound and definitive' impossible all over our stupid heads.

@Sf: No longer 100% true,it is improving. In fiscal 2014, partial recording was implemented in 2,845 cases, down 260 from a year earlier. But a total of 24,107 audio and video clips were produced, up by 15,414. Recording sessions per case averaged 14 hours and 2 minutes, up from 3 hours and 3 minutes a year earlier.
Police started partial recording of interrogations in September 2008 in Tokyo, Osaka and two other prefectures and expanded it nationwide in fiscal 2009. Taping of entire interrogations began in some regions in fiscal 2013.

Prosecute, prosecute, prosecute and bring the full force of the available laws against the bullies, the school and he authorities and not until Japan begins to prosecute these 'people' as such this plague of needless deaths will not be stopped.
An appalling way for a young person, any person to die. STOP the bullies, put their sickness away, out of main stream society.

@Noble, you should report the idiots for endangering other road users.
Typhoon number 9 certainly did hit Naha, and is still hanging around.

Kazunori Harano, the 61-year-old father of Sayaka Harano, one of the victims, said he couldn’t believe he had lost his only daughter, whom he had driven to work every morning.
“I thought the police were kidding me when they told me that the victim is my daughter,” Harano said. “I feel like I have become a living corpse.”

How was it racist? The museum needs to borrow a couple of cannon balls and wear them, AND go ahead with letting people experience a kimono.

Just in case some of the newcomers to Japan don't know, Japan is a patriarchal society, plus, as with the military, males will tend to be very male in attitudes towards women. That's where 'they get it from'.

You need to say "monsieur" to get a waiters attention in France, if they are male and "mademoiselle" if female. Tourist traps in Paris do NOT have good service. Always look for smiles from the staff. Got smile? Sit down. No smile. Passer!

Mental silliness manifests itself into horrors such as these. So sad that innocent children become victims of what should have been identified and treated.

Wherever you are if it's a big occasion, have a drink whatever the time. It's not the Prohibition Era here, there or anywhere. In the 19th century Americans drank ALL the time, water being dangerous and plenty of my North American cousins get cracking the beers in the morning when it's time to enjoy something.
