Why are you guys mad about the chef? The customers knew exactly what they were asking for and what they were getting themselves into. There's no need for the law to intervene here: The law of natural selection is doing it's own job perfectly as it is.

Referring to ber as Obama is extremely strange, considering that's how we refer to the president himself.

This is generational, nothing to do with Japan. If they think this is about conformity they're just trying to explain away internet addiction by oversimplifying the cause as cultural, rather than technological/biological.

@kiwiboy, even at at the chance he has a body, recovering the body of a dead person even isn't worth instigating a chase in the middle of traffic that is likely to kill several innocent people. If the driver puts the petal to the metal, just get the plate number and track him down later and SAVE LIVES.

No, it's called a riot when 15+ buildings were burnt to the grounds, along with several cars and countless lootings.

@yabits "How reliable is Wilson's testimony?" The forensic evidence corroborates his story, along with the witnesses who turned out to be credible.

There are plenty of instances in real racial profiling in america. Why the public picked the one incident that wasn't is beyond me.

Guys i was told that japan has specially designed architecture built to sway and endure earthquakes like these, why didn't it work this time? How come no buildings collapsed in the much more severe 2011 disaster??? Anyone know?

He's nothing special, I'd bet the real reason he's considered sexiest is actually because his co-star lover Jennifer Lawrence is the sexiest lovable woman alive.

@yubaru, you just gave every man here the worst possible piece of advice you could have given. It sounds like you are not very well informed on this topic. Please read this carefully http://en.rocketnews24.com/2013/05/14/guilty-and-never-proven-innocent-every-male-train-riders-nightmare-in-japan/
It has been proven that running away is literally the best and only hope you have if you are falsely accused, and no, it doesn't "show your guilt." It shows you don't want to get involved with the highly corrupt legal system of Japan. Just run.

Anyone who was offended by free U2 music makes me absolutely sick to my stomache- You'd literally have to have 0 problems in your life and are looking for something to get upset about if you consider this a move against smalltime bands. Music is NOT some quota that can be fulfilled by having x amount of songs. NOONE is going to say "oh well now that i have these 10 u2 songs I guess I don't have to purchase any more music now, im all set!" People will buy music that they're interested, and people who don't want to buy music will not buy music anyway. This has been proven time and time again.
I think that's enough japan today for today.

It doesn't matter how much of a nationalistic dirtbag this reporter is or isn't, freedom of the press should always be protected no matter what.
