    "Acceptable?" That's very realistic and to the point, after 25 years together...

    AAC which is far superior than MP3

    Vastly exaggerated claim. Most users won't be able to hear the difference on an iPhone+ cheap (<250 USD) headphones over a daily commute (99% of the use cases in Japan) anyway...FLAC beats them both, but that's not the point of this article...

    Going to bed without a proper bath is really filthy...

    Oh yeah, the situation in the mountains can go from gorgeous to killer in a matter of seconds... I have an alpineer's license in my home country, and get sometimes horrified reading about the lack of preparation that preceeded many deadly accidents...

    Thinking about it, she's so bad into these pills she needed more than 50 of them for her stay in Japan, and her desire for these made her do stupid things and risk a lot... I read you need less than 10 pilsafter a bad operation. Her arrest will probably ween her off, cold turkey mode, and than can only be beneficial for her. Not very good for Toyota's PR, damage control is really the right word here.

    yeah, my g-shock GW-3000 is also solar powered and sets itself to the local time worlwide according to all six atomic sync bands... It also works for months withouth being actualy in the sun (or light). It can go 200 m under the sea, and be dropped from 20 meters without breaking... all this for less than 500 USD. G-Shocks are extremly reliable and really excellent watches (although affciniados would say they're only displays for a big atomic clock somewhere far away, which is also fine with me :) )

    Yea, but it's a bit more difficult to rent a car without the speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (certainly not for 50 EUR/day). I've never driven faster than 120 in Japan, the highways are just too poor quality for this and you're risking a lot. That guy is really out of his mind doing what he did.

    Idiot, go to Germany, rent a car for 6000 yen/day and drive it 250 km/h as much as you wish. Nobody cares...

    Actually the rapid decline of the whale pollution was caused by US, UK and Norway. Japan was a late comet to the business, and interested mostly in the east meat, not the oil. It is highly unfair to treat Japan like this...

    Hotmail, just because Korea won one event, doesn't make them the world leaders in robotics. I guess Japan and US still share this distinction (both by their diversity and by the amount of research done).

    Whale sashimi, and whale furikake are to be experienced only in Japan, don't miss the chance to try it. This meat is now fully legally bought (no grey zones), I wonder what are the complaints?

    Usually spouses have a right to sue the person their partner cheated with

    ONLY if they can prove any financial damage was caused by the relation (as in the husband spending family common money reserved for the kids' college on an extramarital affair). As this family was well being, and as it seems that the affair was consensual and not-paid, I really don't think this was the case here. The mama was not prosecuted here, it was a civil lawsuit.

    For the persons commenting against the decision:

    You all forget the the wife sued the mama, instead of suing (or divorcing) her husband. It is a fundamental human right of the mama to have a consensual relation, regardless of the status of marriage of her partner. As she was not prosecuted for any misconduct (including makura-eigyo if any occurred), I completely agree with the judgment.

    If the wife has any grudge she should sue / divorce her husband first. It is impossible to prove that the mama caused the wife 4million of yen worth of damage...
