    Japan’s economy slammed on the brakes as the country raised its sales tax for the first time in 17 years in April.

    DOH........I hope someone would have Abe do the ice-bucket challenge with a load of bricks.

    So now all 18 year old's should have their licenses revoked because they are too immature to handle the responsibility of driving a car, plus Japan has such a wonderful and reliable public transportation system that no one needs to be driving a car in the first place. Go figure huh? It ain't just the "old" folks who crash huh.

    . I Hope we see more of this kind of cross-national participation!..

    Have you got your head in the sand on everything? This kind of cross-national participation has been going on in tennis for decades.

    Yubaru -- it matters quite a bit, but obviously you don't want to see that. In many countries, like the U.S., a truly free judicial system often awards hefty settlements to victims of corporate abuse to send a message to big companies -

    America is the land of people who can't take responsibility for their own actions as well and they always look to find blame where common sense would have sufficed, people even sue because their ice-cream wasn't cold enough.

    And you suggest that THAT system is better? Hardly....ROFLMAO.....

    TEPCO is a corporate idiot that needs to be taken apart at the seams and rebuilt, however as long as the government props it up, (just like the federal gov in the US did with the banks) it won't fail, and people like this man here will get their compensation, just using public money that's all.

    Yubaru - this unnecessary, avoidable tragedy happened in Higashi Osaka.There was no need for this man to be driving when he quite clearly wasn't up to the task.

    Did you actually read what I was responding to here before you made this comment? I KNOW it happened in Osaka, and depending where one actually lives in Osaka it can be inconvenient for people to have access to public transportation.

    The person I was QUOTING made a blanket (incorrect) statement saying that Japan has "Japan has one of the best, most reliable, and safest public transportation systems in the world. No one really "needs" to drive here. Driving in Japanese is a luxury, not a necessity"

    That's a fallacy for a huge part of the population.

    True. . .And there would likely be a class action suit . .

    And it matters how? THIS is Japan, why do you and others find it necessary to make comparisons to your country and how it does business?

    Great news...the giant is defeated!

    Hardly, TEPCO plays with public money.

    I would also argue that Japan has one of the best, most reliable, and safest public transportation systems in the world. No one really "needs" to drive here. Driving in Japanese is a luxury, not a necessity

    One more person that seems to think that all Japanese live in Tokyo or Osaka.

    Get out of the city and see just how inconvenient public transportation in Japan REALLY is.

    No need to get mad... I know, is an idea.. and ideas need to be bashed right?

    Then why not come up with ideas that dont impede on the rights of those that are capable. There is no blanket solution, it's a case by case kind of thing. When people start make comments or thinking that one size fits all you open pandora's box, figuratively speaking, and cross a line where there is no coming back from. First you start with drivers licenses, then what's next..no medical coverage after 70? Hell they can't drive, they cant work, what good are they for society?

    Where does it end?

    They can go around using public transportation or hire a service (car pooling service for example). How they are going to pay? They may be able to pay with the money they use to maintain the car (gas, oil, bi-annual revision, car insurance, etc.)..

    Public transportation? Hell lets take away licenses from EVERYONE who causes an accident, no matter their age, and have them use public transport.

    Why dont you volunteer to drive them........instead of imposing your ideas on very capable people, put your money where your mouth is and be on call 24/7 for an elderly driver here.

    You know... I said this every time this kind of news pop up.... Take the license away when you turn 65.... No need to elders to drive.

    Then how are they supposed to get around? I realize that many elderly should not be driving, but there are many that are more than capable and in some cases better drivers than some of the idiot kids Ive seen drive.

    Yearly testing is the way to go, taking the licenses away from everyone at 65 is wrong. 65 is NOT old by any means.

    How can you confuse the gas and brakes? One's on the left the others on the right. Your heel should be in the middle.

    This is because many of these older drivers, and others too I've heard and seen, use both feet when driving.

    Yubaru, John Becker was just making a gentle poke at her age, not her intelligence.

    Then why make the comment about her having a GED? That to me is a poke at her intelligence or education background.

    At her age, I'm assuming she got a GED.

    And your assumption would be WAY off the mark, as much as I do not appreciate AKB , the average, typical, Japanese woman is well educated,and more than likely a college graduate. Besides that, and here's to assuming about your ignorance of Japan, GED's here are a hell of a lot harder to get than actually graduating from a 3 year HS.

    When UN asks Japan to stop Whaling than YOU MUST STOP WHALING! There is no ifs or buts here... What is ABE trying to achieve by ignoring the UN ORDER?

    There is a difference between ASKING and ORDERING. The UN is a puppet with very little enforcement power to back up it's requests.

    Adult member? There is more than one adult member of AKB, but they don't want anyone else to know about it.

    Do people THINK? . . .Honestly .... . . .

    Ironic that a Marine would ask this question.

    Read the article again, it just says last month, not a month ago, last month was 3 days ago!

    Semantics. Baskets are points too. Calling them "runs" would be stupid. Run>point, not point>run.

    Semantics? You are the one that made, excuse me TRIED to make the point that (get it?) that runs and points were the same thing. Your logic is flawed and wrong.

    Geez lets take your flawed logic and argument that points and runs are the same thing one step further and apply it to your hockey scenario............RUN scored! Your argument not mine. You were wrong, plain and simple.

    I've never been in a Japanese school, not do I ever want to.

    Then stop making judgments and comments about things you know nothing about. You make across the board claims that are blatantly false, learn to live with being corrected, you MIGHT actually learn something.

    You should try hockey, it's more interesting.

    Your opinion, not a fact.

    Anyway, they should have made both teams the winner after it was still 0-0 afier 25 innings or something.

    Again using your logic, if this was to happen, for the sake of discussion here, how would the two teams play the next game, which was the championship game of the tournament. What you suggest here is impossible.

    Be like the semi-finals of the Frozen Four being the FINAL match because neither team could end up scoring. Never happen. (See I know the difference between a run, a point, and a goal, and quite a few others too, if you are interested in educating yourself let us know I am sure there are plenty that would help to train you!)
