    “It is deeply regrettable that the force could not prevent a suicide due to hazing,” MSDF chief of staff Katsutoshi Kawano told a press conference Monday.

    -100 points. This doesn't mean what you think it means. Stop using the word regrettable, it's asinine.

    why spread it around? The affected communities ARE the storage sites. Maybe they don't realize this yet

    The government has stepped up its disaster response since the devastating 2011 earthquake in northeastern Japan which triggered a tsunami and sent reactors at the Fukushima nuclear plant into meltdown.

    How so?

    Shortman? Batmanchild? Batboy? Little-people-man? It looks like the cape is for an adult but not fitted for his height.

    It's not up to Amazon to determine how much a product is worth then tell the creator the amount they're going to earn, just so they can earn more profits themselves. That's a monopoly and nothing to do with capitalism. The publishing houses can create their own alternative; readers and fans would support the authors

    Japanese government can't apologize because what is left of Imperial Japan which resides in government is not allowed to apologize for anything. That might imply Imperial Japan was wrong, thus ruining their and their supporter's worldview. That would also create a myriad of compensation requests. It is wrong to compensate when you can bury your ethics instead. Thus it's important to keep the apologies as personal statements not official ones. In official cases it's better to run and hide. That's worked so far. After irradiating themselves even children, ignoring comfort women are small potatoes

    Do what the French did, make it a law that you can't sell below 5% of the selling price. That way you don't create unfair business practices that are criminal. It's a concept I suppose

    Japan must be down on their cashola payments. What is the consequence going to be from the UN when Japan doesn't agree?

    I can't see an upside for pilots when companies are running their operations so cheaply. Also with fuel costs to go up and oil shortages expected when the American shale/fracking crashes then there's not a lot of flying that will go on anyway. Not much of a future

    that's half the preparation, the other is a portable toilet and the blue chemical solution. Might as well manufacture millions of Johnny On the Spot's and deploy them around the country in every neighbourhood

    Name a G8 summit that did anything at all? Japan is better off without them. Could be replaced with a 3 hour FaceTime call.

    Also given Russian incursion into Ukraine that should probably be renamed G7

    This is pretty simple to solve. Have two shrines; one for regular martyrs and another for the war criminals. If then no politician visits the war criminals then poof, Asia can relax. Nakasone moving the war criminals into the shrine secretly in 1988 means never ending consternation. It's not like Japan can control spirits so just make another alter and the world can see for itself that Japan is either serious about peace or war.

    too late... nature has a habit of not cooperating with human schedules. I expect it'll unfortunately collapse regardless of these measures. I"m remembering the same mentality that lead up to the Canadian Cod Moratorium before it was a fait du accompli .

    Japan needs to start an awareness program showing other forms of protein and the concept of vegetarian food production. While it doesn't mean the end of fish it does mean that other options need to be acceptable.

    That sucks. When you go to school it's to improve yourself and do something. Condolences to the families.

    I wonder about the Prelude though, the back seats in a coupe' are generally nothing much, so how on earth they got 8 in that thing? Late at night, only one car, and too many need a ride. I can see it happening. What a loss

    Try out a Live-DVD of Linux before upgrading Windows again. The cost of ownership is zero but the benefits are not. It depends though on what your needs are. DistroWatch compares the popular with the specific.
