    Find a tenth of a gram of speed and it's national news, disgraced school and teacher.

    Turn a blind eye to bullying that leads to suicide and it's a "regrettable situation."

    These jobs are non-preprogrammed jobs and need creativeness and social intelligence such as high communication skills.

    In Japan?

    Japan's markets went down the most of the Asian markets after Brexit.

    he still trusts the president’s promise to work toward a nuclear-free world.

    I guess "work toward" can be interpreted in many ways. I could write a blog post about how nukes are bad and then claim that I'm "working toward" a nuke free world.

    Lots of folks (including Greenspan) are saying we are on the brink of a HUGE financial disaster.

    Not that Brexit CAUSED it, rather it EXPOSED it.

    Next week should be an interesting week in the financial markets.

    Hold onto your hats!

    This could be the beginning of the end!

    Some say minimalism is actually not foreign but a natural outgrowth of Zen Buddhism and its stripped-down world view.

    Most religions have a history of aestheticism. Many monks took vows of poverty.

    I believe this is the Japanese version of the same.

    But I also suspect that people claiming to be "minimalist" are perhaps trying to one up the Jones' in a different way?

    (otherwise why talk about it?)

    Lots of angry people in the world at the end of their rope.

    Be careful.

    Situational awareness is your friend.

    Yay for her!

    30,000 Otaku in one stadium?

    They probably sold BILLIONS in "goods."

    The mother did a dam good job fessing up for her kid.

    No. Doing a "dam good job" of fessing up for her kid, when she saw CASH, would be to call the cops, not the school.

    So a mom sees her kid carrying a bunch of cash, and instead of asking him where he got it, she calls the school?

    Where the hell were the teachers when all this was going on?

    How about all the other students?

    I've heard of two firsthand accounts of people scamming the system. Nobody is worried about losing a lifetime of "reputation." In the two cases I heard about, EVERYBODY (the alleged hitter and all the freeloaders, and a few people at the course) were ALL involved.

    Zeppelin has settled ten similar lawsuits in the past. So if they are guilty, it wouldn't be the first time.

    Yep, take everybody's guns. That has always worked out well in history. Funny thing these terrorists attacks seldom happen at gunshows.

    Here's an English tip:

    If you purposely CREATE something in a lab, and it only exists before a fraction of a nanosecond because it is so unstable, then I don' think the word "discover" is appropriate.

    This is absolutely useless vanity science.

    Congratulations, Nihon.

    This idiotic comment also presupposes everybody knows who is "high risk" for suicide.

    Given how every poor kid who kills him/herself is met with a cacophony of "Gee, I had no idea."

    Somehow I don't think that the suicidal birthday types have many friends/families that know it's their birthday.

    (As related in a later TV Interview)

    Ali: (In a pre-civil rights restaurant): I'll have the fried chicken.

    Waiter: Sorry sir, we don't serve Negroes.

    Ali: I don't want a Negro. I want some fried chicken.

    Whatever. Nutters' gonna nut. This is likely going to be a "self correcting" problem. These two parents have been deemed outcasts for the rest of their lives.

    They'll either suck it up and not let it happen again, or they'll eventually blame the kid and murder him in their sleep.

    But what did this kid learn from this experience? His parents punished him, and society roundly criticized them for doing so. I predict he will grow up to be a monster as they will now likely be TERRIFIED of punishing him ever again.
