While I blame the mother in all this...when I was 14 I took care of my 3 younger siblings on a constant basis when my parent was away working.
A 14 year old is more then capable of babysitting 1 small child. Unless that 14 year old paid more attention to her needs and completely neglected her little sister. Just like her mom did to them. Like mother like child, I suppose.

It doesn't matter if you pee standing up or sit down. It doesn't make you less of a man since you shit sitting down.
It's all in the mindset of the guy. If the guy thinks it's degenerating to him as a man to pee sitting down...that guy has some serious issues…
Also, what matters here is common courtesy. If you're going to be a dick and not clean up after yourself, well...you probably don't clean up after yourself when you brush your teeth, or shave, or finish a meal, etc.

You can't pee standing up if you have an erection...
It doesn't matter if you sit or stand, you still have to intervene physically to pee...
Do you not know you're own anatomy?

And for all saying that this is a "noble" gesture, it's NOT. It's selfish. He didn't consider the family's feelings, his friends, his teachers. He could have done something about the closure when he was a live...like rallied people together and protested.
This is a selfish act. Throwing your life away, instead of using it to actually make a difference.

Another day in Japan another suicide. This is very sad...but happens too frequently w/out anybody doing anything about it.

...wait...so why is she apologizing? Why is she making this everybody's business? You had sex. That's what people do. That's what animals do. You're 20 you're not a kid, you having sex doesn't automatically make you become a woman...
WTF is wrong with these no talent AKB48 morons?!

This is ridiculous. You know who you'll be marrying. It's not like you will not know what you'll be getting into. There is this called dating and getting to know the other individual.
Most of the people who complain about marriage are the ones who rushed into them after just under 1 year of being with that person. They probably didn't even live with that person. If you get into a bad marriage it's your own damn fault so stop complaining, unless you like that sort of sadistic thing. Which is a completely different story...

Reminds me when people "predicted" that Mt. Rainier will erupt...we're still waiting...
Reminds me when people claimed that the end of the world will be at Dec 21 2012....we're still here...
Reminds me when we had that Y2k scare...planes didn't fall from the sky...

@ DudeDeuce, you must have been living in a bubble. After day 1 of Fukushima there were comparisons.

@ Nippon Nation
Well yes, and Japanese people like to over exaggerate things.
Still can’t believe that some Japanese individuals think that Fukushima is A LOT worse than Chernobyl…
No Japan…if Godzilla were to happen, it would be from Ukraine. Sorry.

I like Okinawa...it still has that quiet appeal to it.

It's like here. You steal a $1 and you get years.
This has nothing to do with "principal". It's all about corruption.
