I would love to see the complete fare up front. No. 1 travel will advertise a flight from Japan to the U.S. for 49,000 yen. To get the real price you have to call them up which is horribly inefficient. If the price isn't right I am not going to be tricked into purchasing with a teaser rate only to find that the actual flight is going to cost me three times that.

This is an outrage indeed! Unit 731 is enough of an atrocity but it doesn't end there. 7+3-1=9 7+3+1=11 9/11 What kind of sick code is this? hahahahahahah

I suspect the cops will be out in full force writing citations for two weeks and then will disappear. Outside my window I watch cars run the run light all day long. I should record it sometime. It happens all day long.

Yubaru, What an odd argument. Is Merriam Webster the authority on definitions with the sole power to change the meanings of words in the English language? I am for gay marriage but your argument is weak.

warallthetimeMar. 25, 2013 - 02:06PM JST
Yes. I don't agree that Churches should have to agree to marry them in their establishments if it goes against their teachings though. For the record I am not religious but I can see if gay marriage was passed everywhere, that wouldn't be the end of it. Some groups are constant agitators.

Abe plans to spend 100 trillion yen ($1 trillion)
100 Trillion yen is closer to $1.5 Trillion or did I miss something and the $1 is suddenly trading at 100 yen?

I was very surprised to find out that most Japanese do not get screening for disorders done while pregnant. We had to contact many clinics to finally find one that would perform the screening that is standard in my home country.

Will Obama ever admit his own wrong doing in anything? It truly is amazing that he gets away with blaming others every single time. Just once I want to hear him take responsibility for something.

Scanner audio has been released of police ordering the place set on fire. Execution by fire, no due process. They also fired more than 40 bullets into a truck that they thought Dorner was in. It was two women delivering newspapers.

I doubt drugs have anything to do with it. If the guy was targeting Japanese tourists, he probably went crazy because of the lack of opportunities on Guam. I am not justifying his actions but they have built up that area of Guam specifically for Japanese tourists. The rest of the island is in rough shape. I can definitely see an unstable person becoming increasingly fed up and jealous. By the way his name has been released it is Chad Desoto.

@Bakakun I agree with you 100% Unfortunately nowadays people discredit the founding fathers any chance they can. Those were amazing men. Have a look at any member of the current administration, not one even measures up to the level of human being the founding fathers were.

This is such a stupid story and it has come out that this woman was often ridiculed in the workplace. I wonder how many people jumping to this women's defense even listened to the prank. The entire length of time Jacintha Saldanha was on the phone was 6 seconds. Here is the entire "traumatizing" phone call that she was a part of.
Radio Show DJ:Hello Good Morning
Jacintha Saldanha: Hello, good morning, King Edward VII hospital
Radio Show DJ: Oh, hello there. Can I please speak to Kate, please -- my granddaughter
Jacintha Saldanha: Oh, yes, just hold on, ma'am.
Now are you trying to tell me an otherwise stable person would be so effected by this that it would drive them to suicide? Get real people.
