    Probably took them that long to file the paperwork.

    Or, this girl and her family were trying to get money out of a driver who was alone on the bus with her. She says, he says.

    What's the Japanese youth jargon for "Frack Off"?

    Since when did a date and "become romantically involved" become synonymous. Even if there was sex involved, there's plenty of sex without romance going around.

    *Is something brewing underneath our feet *

    Yes there is, it's called plate tectonics and it's been going on for at least 300 million years and was much more drastic millions of years ago (see the Himalaya mountains).

    Getting more and more frequent lately

    No. getting reported more frequently lately.

    @Dustin Etheridge:

    More pertinent is the fact that Turkey has had (and still has) a decades long war with the Kurds over Kurdish claims to parts of Turkey for Kurdistan. It stand to reason that they don't want to help anyone arming their enemy.

    Hiroki Okabe, the vice chairman of ALS Japan, said there had been some complaints about the “nominate three other friends” rule of the bucket challenge. Many worried that the effect is not unlike “chain mail,” and may possibly lead to bullying among children, he said, according to TBS. Others accused celebrities of taking part just for publicity.

    Leave it to the Japanese to put a negative spin on a golbal charity effort. Of course celebrities use it for publicity, they also donate a TON of money. George Bush, Danica Patrick, Taylor Swift all have generated millions (in Dollars) by accepting the challange and posting on Youtube,

    2.35 million, out of a population of 150 million. I have not been in Japan for one of these in many years, I always seem to be on assignment somewhere else but if I remember right, this is a bunch of old men, pensioners, running around in day-glo vests telling everyone else what to do. Of course when a real desaster hits, these are the first one to die. School kids in World War 2 relic quilted hoods? I always kept a survival kit around, bottled water, flashlight, first aid kit, blankets, dried food, etc. It's best to be prepared to take care of yourself and your family and not depend on someone else.

    **It is not softball, the pitching mechanics are the same as hardball and the ball weighs basically the same it just has a reduced injury factor with regard to being hit by a pitch or struck by a line drive. This is a quote from a Johns Hopkins paper on the subject:

    *"The growth plate is a specialized part of the bone located near the joint which is where growing of the bones occurs (Figure I). This area is not as strong as the bone, ligaments or tendons. As a result, when the shoulder or elbow feels the stress of a baseball pitch, the growth plate is affected by this stress more than the other structures. This is only a problem if the stress occurs too frequently and if the stress is large. Players who pitch are at risk the most for these problems because they throw hard and often. This is one of the reasons that the number of innings (and hopefully the number of pitches) allowed by a player are limited by league rules." *

    So, yes, requiring a young arm to throw that many pitches is a form of abuse and can lead to permanent damage.

    It's not vengence, it's not a deterrent, it's friggin' punishment for taking someones else's life. The vengence and deterrent part are collateral.

    The virus that is not affected by the drug will reproduce immune viruses. How will it get out of the isolation ward? What Isolation ward? We're talking about Africa here, how is the virus spreading now?

    I reiterate: If the treatment does not work, it can produce a more virile strain.

    A Canaadian company is also offering an experimental vaccine but health experts warn that using untested drugs can be dangerous and counterproductive. If the treatment does not work, it can produce a more virile strain.
