    I was with my in-laws when this news was released, and to be honest I was underwhelmed by their response.

    that is perhaps because no one gives a rats butt about killing whales besides westerners with free time. from a logical point of view, whales are just animals that can be eaten, but in some people's eyes, they are some glorified sentient beings that deserve personhood. if you remove emotion from the picture, you might get a clearer point of view.

    550 bank accounts?!?! holy smokes. logistically, they would have had to visit every small town in japan with a local bank and opened an account there. that's a lot of small towns they visited!

    are you kidding me?! how biased against the cops can you be? the only person at fault here is the driver. how do you think the police could have prevented this accident? by...having psychic powers? give it a rest already.

    four out of 10 mixed-race marriages break down within the first five years

    that's about the average in any country, so this is not such a shocking figure. i'm actually surprised the figure is so low considering these are mail-order brides.

    I may be jumping to conclusions, but this really is a warning to any young woman walking alone: never stop to help a man in a car, especially at night. ignore the driver and run away as fast as you can.

    with the dramatic rise in the population of the elderly in japan within the next decade or two, i think this type of story will be more common unfortunately.

    this recent tax hike is proving to be more than 3 percent. at each stage of purchasing, there is a 3 percent increase. so by the time it reaches consumers, it's more like a 9 percent hike. i've really felt it at my local veggie store, butchers and supermarket.

    The Hakamada case is a serious indictment of the Japanese capital punishment system.

    no, it's a serious indictment on japan's judicial and legal system. both failed him in this case.

    seriously, the koreans have nothing better to do? this is one state in the US, and it has little implication for the US or the world. so basically the koreans paid a ton of money for nothing. what a waste.

    ashley madison is the biggest scam around. my friend tried it and all the winks and messages stopped after he bought credits. just check out the reviews on the web.

    a dollar short and a day late. i don't think MS understands that this "new" feature will do absolutely nothing to increase sales. microsoft has been so "uncool" for the past decade that unless they come up with some revolutionary app, design or feature they will continue to throw money down the drain with window phones.

    the verdict does not condemn whaling, which many posters here seem to do. it merely states that if japan wants to continue whaling then it needs to devise a better "scientic" approach to it. at the same time, this belief that whaling is culturally important is nonsense.

    They said researcher Haruko Obokata, the lead author of the paper in Nature, had manipulated or falsified images of DNA fragments used in the research.

    this was already widely known (and the fact that there was some plagiarism). i still haven't read anywhere that she fabricated the results of the experiment, which obokata and vacanti still stand by.

    i think if you're stuck in an immigration cell in any country, you are SOL because the only thing the host country wants to do is to get your butt out of the country.

    also, i don't understand why many posters think japan HAS to accept more refugees. why should the humanitarian aspect of it outweigh the cost-benefits?

    otsukare sama deshita! i've always liked tamori. he never needed to insult people to be funny, and his rotating stable of daily talents made sure that there was something for everyone to enjoy. and most importantly, there were no segments dedicated to watching people eat food!

    basically the prices are the same from narita and haneda. the only benefit is the time saved getting to the airport. but even though it'll take longer, i like being able to get a seat, relax, and buy a beer from the trolley lady on the n'ex. to me, that signals the start of my trip.
