The app should also be able to calculate the calories you are burning while chewing and swallowing your food. The goal would be to eat the right amount of food at the right speed to have zero total calories consumed.

If you care at all about what you eat, don't go to McDonald's in the first place. I love the taste of McD's food, and don't care much about strange ingredients. It's the sheer volume of everyday fat and salt in their food that will get you. That's why I stopped eating there, especially after they told their own employees not to eat the food because it is unhealthy.

Many more die from smoking and overeating. But because we choose to do those things to ourselves, and enjoy them, they're not as scary as a bloody jungle virus.

@ bass4funk - You got that right. We lived in LA close to downtown the last four years before moving to Japan. I never had any problem walking several blocks to work and back during the daytime. But my wife and I always tried to get home before dark. Once, as we were entering our building, a guy tried talking to my wife. I said "Hey, that's my wife" and he said "If you talk to me again, I'll kill you". Nice huh, and he lived in our building. So we are very glad to live in Japan, and not afraid to go out at night.
Having said that, there are more cases of children dying from abuse or carelessness of parents in Japan, than from child predators, so let's be careful about that also.
Posted in: Nowadays, for fear of child predators, it is no longer considered safe to let young children go by themselves to and from school, to a friend's house, play in parks or at the beach, go to shops and so on. Was it like this when you were young?

IDIOT BOYFRIEND'S GUIDE TO BABY CARE:
A one year old baby will cry for one of four reasons...hunger, diaper change, loneliness, or illness. So if your girlfriend's baby is crying, and you can't focus on your sleep or video games, try one of these handy tips. Give him/her something to eat. If they want more, then they're hungry. Check the diaper. If it's wet or smells, change it. If it's not the first two, try holding them for a bit, or lay down with them. If they're sick, keep him comfortable till mama gets home, or take him to the clinic yourself if it's serious.

First of all, handguns are banned in Japan, not shotguns, so no problem there.
He was 75 and she was 30? Why not if you have the money? I can make some educated guesses though...1) You know she had friends with benefits on the side, 2) Ojichan found out about them and they had a big fight, 3) She threatened to divorce him and get a big settlement, 4) Ojichan played the trump card.

"detractors who believe her shooting, hospitalization and coma were all staged" That is the stupidest thing I've heard all year. Are you kidding me? Let's see them take an AK-47 round to the head and live to tell about it. "Through Malala they want to malign the image of Pakistan and Islam" Well' DUH. That's what happens when you go shooting high school girls in the head for voicing an opinion.
