Best is to just stay calm, courteous and cooperate to prevent things from escalating. Of course there are rare situations like @peacetrain upstairs. Ive been pulled over maybe twice, but never had any problems.
Also 1 bad apple doesn't mean all cops are bad. Sometimes people forget that I think.

This is just to get her back in the spotlight, she faded a long time ago. We'll just have to wait 1 year to see if it worked out. But me thinks she will hold on to him to get babies.

apnea or narcolepsy it doesn't matter, it's terrible this happened AGAIN. remember the bus crash last year in Gunma that killed 7 people also due to the driver falling asleep (apnea if I remember the news item correctly). They need to screen people better.

From what I've heard Japan doesn't want to execute the aum members because they are afraid of reprisals.
What is shocking is that there are still people joining this cult. I believe they have around 2000 members still!

The story might not be true but something fishy is going on there. Saw on gizmodo yesterday a nightmap from outerspace with north-korea completely black except for some lights in Pyong Yang. They have no electricity or limited electricity in this day and age and Kim Jong Un, gives fark all because I dont see him making any effort improving his country.

@smithinjapan Cant blame Kishida for downplaying the comments, it was not him who said those things, and he is THE foreign minister and responsible for Japan having good contact with its neighbors.
I think Kishida must also be sick of some of the oyaji's making stupid comments and him having to fix it.
