    Such is the 'jimusho' system in Japanese entertainment.

    If you look at the channel this video is hosted on you will see many, many mediocre comedians mostly with single trick acts. The agency pumps them out in the hope that one out of a hundred will go super boom and payoff. The majority are like this act - awful and an insult to the genuinely funny comedians out there.

    I am all for following your dreams, but you have to realise when you aren't very good at something like this act.

    Earthquake scales are pretty much all meaningless from a safety point of view, because the shaking will start a few seconds after the initial warning. If fact, there was no warning for this quake because the system is set to send warnings for quakes under 150 km depth.

    Magnitude is not meaningless. The moment magnitude scale represents the amount of energy released. If there is an 8.5 quake at a shallow depth out to sea, there is a very real possibility of a tsunami. Once I saw the depth of this one I knew there was no chance of a tsunami or aftershocks. Deep-focus quakes are scary because they are felt over a wide area, but in reality they are far less dangerous than shallow quakes.

    Still, a deep-focus quake of M 8.1 is a very rare event. The largest one ever recorded is 8.3.

    My dog looked at me in a funny way yesterday, a frog was heard to recite poetry in Manchester, and there is a butter shortage.

    All the signs are there people. Big quake coming soon.

    I applaud the government's swift action on banning these things.

    I was recently attacked by a flock of feral drones In Shibuya. I was treated for mental stress and minor chafing.

    The danger they pose cannot be exaggerated.

    Marshmallow? Voluptuous? Plus size?

    They ate all the pies and are fat.

    They should be denied health insurance until they get off their blubber butts and take some exercise.

    And don't give me metabolism and all that crap. They are porkers because they eat too much and don't exercise. They should also have to pay for double seats on airplanes because I don't want their sweaty tsunamis of lard overflowing into my restricted space.

    As for Cosplay? Oh Jesus. Hippos in maid costumes. Save my eyes and my sanity.

    More than the race issue, my first thoughts were, 'What? They are still doing beauty pageants?"

    The Japanese press are reporting she had an air embolism, similar decompression syndrome (the bends) that divers get.

    The Japanese press also said she was conscious and eating, but still not fully recovered.

    avigatorNOV. 24, 2014 - 09:10AM JST I would not be surprised this is related with Japan's impasse in signing the TPP agreement through HAARP extortion.

    No. It's due to Japan having thousands of active faults all over the country. You silly sausage.

    It was a phreatic eruption - ground water heated by magma.

    Phreatic eruptions are harder to predict than magmatic ones and have been responsible for the deaths of several volcanologists over the years. They often produce clouds of hydrogen sulphide, which could have been responsible for the deaths of those climbers.

    Blaming volcanologists for this is just silly. I studied volcanology at university and I don't envy them their jobs. Japan has such complex geology it is a thankless task.

    Tradition is not an excuse for anything. Neither are national boundaries.

    If something is dumb, it's dumb.

    Using the war dead to express your political beliefs is sad.

    Leave them alone. They didn't want to die for their country. They wanted to stay at home with their families and friends.

    Unfortunately for the conspiracy theorists, the lack of press coverage has nothing to do with government pressure. The TV companies actually follow guidelines from the World Health Organization regarding the reporting of suicides. As Japan is considered a high-risk country for suicides, the WHO recommends that the reporting of such incidents is limited and non-sensationalist. Psychologists believe that it prevents copycat events from occurring.

    An interesting thing to mention about Bali is that sometimes when spiritual protocol lapses strange things happen here... Balinese businesses always pray, or bless their journeys... Just an interesting observation because some overseas businesses may not prioritize that in the same way? Maybe this one did too, hopefully it did... and that may be evident in the rescue..., Just saying it's another perspective, as this place is extremely spiritual and works that way in everyday life. In comparison to other places in the world, we must acknowledge it...

    ...and OBVIOUSLY the prayers of everyone have been heard for survival of those strong, beautiful ladies... so let's keep praying for the other two...

    A lot of the afflicted in Japan seem to be children. Is this really the case in other lands?

    Yes. Norovirus affects people with weaker immune systems - children, the elderly and the ill.

    Most of us have contracted it at some time. We all have it in our bodies. If you are a healthy adult, in most cases you can fight it off.

    110 people made claims to the authorities in my prefecture complaining of illness related to these items. They found no traces of pesticide in the food. Sounds like a lot of people looking for some compensation.

    Makes it more difficult for the investigators to find the real scale of the contamination.
