I can imagine Nishimura's source of such info, late night drunk session with Yaks. But it would be tough to cite that.

Papigiulio, thanks for the link. But section 2 described rules (guidelines?) for pedestrians. Lower down, section 4 describes the rules for autos; and 4.8 states: Pedestrians crossing the street at a crosswalk have right-of-way. Always be sure to check for pedestrians crossing the street. If there are any, be sure to stop and wait for them.
So cars should stop. I agree that many (most?) do not. Cops should enforce this law."
I don't understand why this would get any thumbs down. It is not only the law, it is common sense.

Just so. Having lived in Europe, I watched many children become fluent in 3, 4, 5 languages at an early age, no problem.

"Chuck it into..."
Huh? I was hoping to see language that is understandable. Is this a technical term that I missed the boat on?

Here's the best forecasting site to see when the pm2.5 is coming. http://sprintars.riam.kyushu-u.ac.jp/forecastj.html
Check this site to see the pm2.5 levels in China and then just follow the jetstream to see where it ends up. http://www.aqicn.info/?map You don't have to be a scientist to figure this stuff out. It is NOT coming from Japan."
If you had gone outside and tested the wind, you could have easily understood that this cloud could not have come from China.

Reading the headline, I imagined a 15- or 16-year-old. 19 is hardly youth, and definitely should be adult.
