ummmm stabbing and killing somebody in self defense is one thing, cutting a head clean off is a completely different thing. I have no problem if she stabbed her father multiple times, but to cut his head off?? Anyway, unless we are told how it was done such as standing up or he was lying down, etc it is kind of hard to imagine.

all they need to do is introduce commercials and problem solved and then they can shut up. If they can't get the ratings then go bankrupt and then shut up.

evil evil guy, Japan should have been promoting renewable energy a decade ago and established themselves as the leaders in the clean energy industry. Japan could have easily been world leaders and one that all other countries would look to for insight, but no, they choose a technology that is 50 years old that not only cannot be safely used, but with no means to get rid of the waste. What is wrong with these guys, do they have no conscience...? sorry, stupid question.....money talks....

sure, lets round them up into one room, ID and fingerprint them. Now what they should have done is get hackers to participate online using ShowNet 2013 last week as a base to hack. http://www.interop.jp/2013/shownet/stm.html

since everyone is spying on each other using the same hardware the problem of not being able to "officially" spy on your own people is solved

as if the really bad guys don't use encrypted telecommunications.... all they do is data mine innocent people and eavesdrop on the public. The first major carrier that incorporates a fully encrypted product line will be the start of a new digital era.

just get them to clean it up, repaint the koban, stand outside for a few days and apologize to the people passing by and do some community work like clean the street, plant flowers, clean windows and drains.

there are a number of near uninhabited islands scattered across the region, but Mageshima would fit the purpose. Guam of course should be where intensive training should take place in the first place.

Japan is the only country I know where you could offer any size drink for the same price and people will still choose small. Same with vending machines which are typcially 120yen for 350ml and 150yen for 500ml. These days it is quite common to see even smaller 250ml for 100yen and usually sold out.

transfer HDD to HDD is much quicker and safer otherwise just back up onto external HDD for the same price and these days a 64GB or more SD Card should be enough for most people.

uhh, another failed two-factor authentication requiring a mobile phone. Why can't they incorporate other kinds of two-factor authentication like questions, pictures, ip locked, device locked, sim locked or at worst a different email address.
