    well if you are to believe the IRC, this is a joint venture between japan and the IWC; hence, it is all above board. but the fact that it hunt is not in a "protected sanctuary" pisses off less people, i guess.

    no alcohol on flights? that ridiculous. just because a few idiots a year can't hold their alcohol doesn't mean that the rest of us can't. in my lifetime, i have never seen anyone act up because of getting wasted on a flight.

    and it's not "free," you pay for it when you purchase your ticket.

    seeing his face on tv made for a good laugh. his snorkel equipment only protected the area around his eyes so the rest of his face is a deep brown. but what an amazing story. glad he was able to keep his wits about him and not freak out.

    This girl obviously has a history of displaying symptoms of psychopathic tendencies. Those issues just intensified with her mom passing, her father remarrying, and her isolated living. Unfortunately, in normal Japanese fashion, the family chose to ignore it and sweep it under rug to avoid embarrassing the family name instead of getting the girl help.

    what a joke! first off, there is no treatment for psycopathy. from wiki:

    Psychopathy has often been considered untreatable. Harris and Rice's Handbook of Psychopathy says that there is little evidence of a cure or effective treatment for psychopathy; no medications can instill empathy, and psychopaths who undergo traditional talk therapy might become more adept at manipulating others and more likely to commit crime.

    second, your sweeping generalization about what japanese families do is outdated. more and more modern families these days seek treatment for their children's problems. but obviously you would rather stick with an outdated and uninformed prejudice against japanese families.

    why the heck did he come back to japan? that baffles me.

    rola is mentioned because this comes with the package for being famous. i don't feel much sympathy for her since she's making money hand over foot for not really doing much.

    how would the parents know that she wasn't "home" since she doesn't live with them. this story has too many holes in it.

    what's the point of hounding her now? she's yesterday's news once she agreed to retract her paper.

    They could have parked a car outside of her apartment. They could have assigned an officer to escort her and do a sweep of the apartment when she got home. They could have just given her a mobile panic button to push if she saw him. They could have given her a can of mace. There are lots of things they could have done.

    In this particular case these measures might or might not have helped, but the measures I describe above are fairly standard in many countries.

    once again, i would just like to see one iota of proof for these statements. these are not common police procedures in a vast majority of countries, especially giving mace to people, and there is no such thing as a "panic button."

    this would be great news if it were ever to happen, but i doubt it. competition isn't really built into the japanese way of doing things.

    You know, I actually believe she thought the child would be alright. We all know that common sense is not a strong point among Japanese people. Leaving kids in cars is just common practice here.

    if it were "common practice," you would be reading about kids dying in cars everyday. yes, a very small percentage of parents are idiots, but that doesn't mean the whole country is filled with them. leave your racism at the door.

    blindly firing into a thicket is not a mistake, it's negligence bordering on manslaughter. this isn't a wild boar that could attack, it's a deer that would run away at the sight of a human. who gave that bozo a hunting license?

    hamas fights with a few guns, some home-made rockets and bombs, whereas israel fights with US supplied tanks, laser-guided missiles, fighter jets and the latest in US supplied guns and combat gear. and all the talk about hamas using "human shileds" is AIPAC talking. independent observers have verified very few instances of this happening. and israel wonders why the international community is against it? puh-lease. i could list a hundred more reasons.

    if you're screwed in the head, kill yourself, but leave your kids, family and the public alone.

    it seems like the plane was flying on a route approved by the UN:

    Malaysia Airlines have moved to stress that the flight route taken by the plane that came down in Ukraine had been declared safe by the UN aviation arm, the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

    if the mom saw a suspicious silver car in the previous months, shouldn't she have warned her daughter about talking to strangers with silver cars?

    why confiscate her "artwork" if her crime was sending people schematics of making a 3-d manko?
