@M3, the man was unemployed, maybe not enough disposable cash for a SmaPho.
Chemical castration on the books? Yes? No? What other deterrent can we have to STOP rape?

At this very moment there are numerous infants, toddlers and young children who have been left in stupidly avoidable situations that may up resulting in their death. This is not and has never been unique to Japan. The more we educate people to have a routine before they walk away from their car that ensures they check for their child the safer and better it will be; the more we invest in technology that prevents people walking away from their cars the better and safer it will be. The stupidity of supposed parents really does know no bounds at times. Selfish. Stupid and others.

It sounds really offal. Well, you get what you pay of, and if there is money to be made then someone is going to find the cheapest, most horrible thing they can bleach, flavor and fry and feed it you for your yen. Enjoy!

@Sam: Brilliant. I've down something similar, but was perhaps not quite as polite. Again, it'S what we need. Affirmative action against those who would harm our loved ones.

After years of worsening conditions the ‘occupants’ totally outgunned have started another uprising; I can only conclude it must have been to maintain their human dignity. The outcome is bound to be a disaster. Either way they are going to be killed (Combatants) or murdered (Civilians). I’d argue that the same harrowingly sad rational has held true before in the recent past of the Jewish Nation. Has no one learnt anything from history? Israel –the Israel instigating this war– you either carry out a continuos assault on the Palestinian people, fellow human beings, or you stop, STOP and talk and find and GIVE reason to live together. There are plenty of Israelis who want to live in peace with an equal partner. I hope THAT Israel wins the day.

He prepared a soundproof room. I am willing to put some time aside for him and I to use its properties. To really test how well it prevents sound escaping.

@Hidingout: You mean the kind of world where a powerful nation's foreign policy strips others of raw materials, divides their populations, removes elected officials, bombs them and tells them what to do, 'Or else'?

When you get NO help from your partner, your family, friends or yourself, you begin to believe only YOU can really know what to do. Of course this is unforgiveable, totally beyond anything any of us should have to read about or know BUT... perhaps we need to start understanding in order to stop it happening again. What I would do to offer her sanctuary, care and understanding, to give those children the life they so fully deserve. Just too sad.
