um. as for the part against the akb48 commercial for it "encouraging homosexuality", I was told by Japanese friends that the Japanese weren't uptight about sexuality and homosexuality like the west is because they are a secular society that never experienced the influence of Christianity.... Was I lied to? Because apparently the conservative Japanese also got this resentment from somewhere.

i dont think it's as "complex" as they're trying to lead us to believe. First off, there is no reason for a breed that even has a remote inclination to such violence to not be within the confines of a fenced in area.

The title of this article could definitely use some editing.... Taken out of context it makes about as much sense as spaghetti creature.

@SenseNotSoCommon, you couldn't find a single case where the victim actually died, could you? In Japan roof snow casualties happen every year, in Canada nobody dies...
@hokkaidoguy in quebec we can get up to 4m a year, especially recently, but if you head just a little north to mont ste-anne it gets over 6m sometimes. If you want to talk about records though one city in B.C. got 24 meters one year lol. That's not my point though, my point is Japan only has a very small region that actually gets ANY legitimate amount of snowfall, whereas Canada gets snowfall literally everywhere. Hokkaido could fit inside Canada 120 times over.

@aspara we have much more total snowfall throughout canada, yet I've never heard of it happening here, yet I read about it happening in Japan every year..?

if you're dead set on committing a crime so disgustingly heinous as killing your own son, for the love of god at least choose a method that doesn't cause such excruciating and lasting pain (particular if he survives)!!
My heart truly goes out to the boy who just went through more pain than most of us could possibly even imagine in a lifetime.

@Redacted ahaha so you're saying that since you were able to non-violently incapacitate ONE DRUNK GUY, by teaming up on him 2 v 1, that that proves anything at all? These guys were practically out-numbered 2 to 1 against very sober, very angry girls. The only way you could assure winning when there are 2 people against you is if you viciously go all out to defend yourself and beat the girls to a pulp.... I commend the boys for not being aggressive monsters.

@slumdog because obviously what you think is right is completely wrong. The man who stole ignored that it was wrong to steal, the woman who held onto a moving car out of defiance against a petty thief ignored that it's wrong to value your store's merchandise over your own life.

I don't understand this whole idea of "making up for lost time" just because you share dna? Your family isn't a set of biological genetic information, it's the people who have cared for your whole life, and if you don't even have parental figures in your life, your friends become your true family. This man is grasping at straws and will never find true happiness at this rate, as he doesn't understand the true meaning of family.

I agree with CGB, so far Osaka has just been a second-rate version of Tokyo.. Everything it has Tokyo does better. Not now.
