    Yes just like the way the US views radiation although it has been proven that low dose exposure does cause cancer. The US and Europe have such high limits for what is acceptable in food, water, soil what have you. It is just criminal..... if radiation is so dangerous and it is. Why in the world would they call it nuclear medicine. It is the very thing that can give you cancer in the first place and hospitals are using it to supposedly heal the very same thing.

    You took one hell of a swing there with that nonsense. You missed spectacularly, but I am sure we all appreciate the effort nevertheless.

    I hate when people assume more megapixels equates to better image quality...

    Awesome, they come with special hats so you don't need to constantly tell everyone that you have the new iPhone! Wake me up when they have a battery that can compete with the Nokia 3310...

    The insane vehicles put together for the movie were the true stars of this one... really enjoyed it (twice!) at the Toho cinema in Shinjuku. It's loud and stupid, but doesn't make the mistake of pretending to be otherwise!

    usually Robert Downey JR loves to visit asia but I think he is busy filming Captain America: Civil War

    He isn't allowed in to Japan due to drug convictions...

    I spent several months on the beta/preview builds and it was enough for me to decide that it's time to move on from Windows 7 (I skipped 8). It's got some really cool features on the DX12 api seems impressive in how quick draw calls can be made.

    In Japan, cashiers always count out the notes... surely that would have been a big indication?

    i will be disheartened if another church puts aside the teachings of the bible to cater to the whims of a group coming to power. for man to decide that the bible, especially the new testament is no longer valid is wrong, this was a book written by witnesses of Jesus under the hand of the Holy Spirit.

    Considering a lot of Christians wear gold, eat pork, get remarried/divorced, and allow women to speak within church, I think it is safe to say that things have already become "loose" across the board concerning the bible rules.

    The food

    Carbs-on-carbs with a lot of salt is the reason I tend to cook at home more often than not... Even after more than a decade here, I have no idea how the average Japanese person isn't constipated all of the time (or maybe they are?)

    I think Japan should go on a points-based system like Australia's. We should be accepting a lot more skilled and professional migrants, not unskilled or uneducated

    Japan actually has such a system in place already. The problem is that the people Japan is trying to attract for employment or research tend to head to America.

    ...but then again, it sounds like his parents weren't exactly interested judging from the final paragraph. Poor kid :-(

    Street surveillance camera footage showed Uemura pushing a bike and walking with three other boys about the same age as the victim toward the riverbank early in the morning of Feb 20. Later on, the footage shows only three boys returning. An autopsy revealed that Uemura was killed at around 2 a.m. and his body was found at 6 a.m.

    Was he reported missing prior to the body being discovered? I can't believe a 13-year old boy can be out so late without the police being notified...

    Lower it to something like 1 million yen (100 thousand dollars) and you'd get more head scratching.

    The head scratching would probably be done by economists wondering how on earth the yen has appreciated so much ;-)

    You were searching for hostages in the wrong kind of bunker, Mr PM.

    What kind of "car" was this? 10 people?

    Pro tip: When an article mentions the same person twice, you don't need to count them as 2 people.

    In America there used to be a slogan, "Speed Kills", and it still holds true.

    Well, technically speed doesn't kill you. The sudden deceleration, however...

    Japan can't pay the ransom... As horrible as it feels to say that, $200m will buy an awful lot of weapons to kill even more people with.

    I just hope everyone on here has private pension schemes... I have to pay into the national scheme, but made sure to get a "real" one to run alongside it. No point risking my future for the sake of a relatively small amount per month.
