    Clutching at straws much?

    You regularly make totally erroneous statements and when called on your BS evade. YOU stated that apex predators don't pose a man-eater risk and act purely defensively. That's FALSE. Regularly weaving arguments around a collection of half-truths is intellectually dishonest.

    that paying to kill things makes up for their inadequately-sized reproductive equipment?

    Ah yes, the reflex argument of the unimaginative female: belittle the man's penis. Do you have data to support your assertion regarding Mr Palmer or just spouting libel?

    I agree that we don't know whether the man was obese. But I also think it is not a particularly relevant point. I think the reason the J media mentioned his weight would be that it would help explain why the wife was unable to move both before she went into the toilet and after she became trapped in the toilet.

    wtfjapan: Japan surrendered in August 10th, the day after the Sovoet Union entered the war. It took weeks for the diplomatic wrangling and paperwork. Actually, Japan sued for peace a month beofre Potsdam, but it was rejected. Politics and posturing is more important than lives.

    US high school history books aren't a good source for the truth.

    I am baffled that a mentally ill person of this degree is roaming the streets. Surely family, school, friends, coworkers know this person is sick. I don't know about Japan and mental health services or if involuntary commitment to an asylum are options?

    Completely unwilling to face the reality that they are ALL at risk from radical jihadism.

    Everyone is theoretically at risk for everything. It's not the presence of risk that should drive decision making, but rather the odds of the action occurring.

    100kg as a weight without reference doesn't tell us whether he was obese, tall, or muscular. I've been 100kg, at 18% body fat - not obese at all. Other people are really tall, and 100kg is their natural weight, though in Japan this isn't so likely. But not impossible either.

    "Christopher", you have a highly selective and misleadingly prejudiced view.

    The war is over. It's time to call an end to trying to exploit it. Sadly, it seems the Communist Party is only starting to. But, frankly, they are hardly in touch with reality and have too much of their own misdeeds and murder to hide.

    Far more Chinese, Tibetans, Uyghurs and so on died under Mao and keep dying than died in the wars with Japan and other Imperialists.

    @StrangerinaStrangeLand

    Thank you.

    All you have to do is look at the decline of "mom and pop" farming the US to see what the big agri-corps are planning from Japan.

    And, yes, it will be a damn shame. On a par with the fire bombing of all Japanese cities that destroyed so much historical and cultural wealth during WWII.

    We live in a bizarre world where gambling on 1s and 0s that don't even exist on a computer screen is worth millions, where producing the food our bodies all need to survive is worth as little as they can make possible.

    I would say that this war was something the bankers wanted to happen and was planned many years from the time Commodore Perry forced his way into Japan. The bankers, (through their puppets, the elected officials), coached Japan into becoming a colonial power with ambitions parallel to Germany's. The end result would be to impose a system of central banking which brings the country to full servitude of the bankers. Do not believe it?

    Jeff, it's easy to "you're wrong" without substantiating how. I'd disagree with you.

    Japan is still, basically, 100% self-sufficient in, say, rice for human consumption - which is why it's part of the argument at the TPP. Japan does not need a flood of cheap Californian rice to destroy it's agricultural communities; it's the big American producers/corporations who do, and don't give a damn about "communities". Not even American farming communities (read up on their decline).

    If you look at the figures, what imbalances the calorific self-sufficiency rates is, for example, corn for animal feed, most of which don't actually need to be fed or consumed. They are unnecessary luxury products. Same too with most of the wheat imports.

    Geographical topography aside, there are problems and difficulties with Japanese agriculture many of which, I would argue, go directly back to the US forced land re-distribution after WWII.

    As to the "U.S. military-economic intervention", pray tell us what you think Perry was doing. "Liberating japan for the sake of the Free World" perhaps?

    One thing for sure, you can directly connect the start of the industrial beef industry to American demand both for consumption and supply the 19th Century.

    'Hillary would be more convincing about her health if she show letters from three independent doctors including at least one from psychiatrist. After head concussion caused by unexplained fall public needs more reassurance.'

    The GOP debate/mental institution day out kicks off in a few days. Look out for someone dressed as Napoleon standing next to someone who is stark bollock naked. I've got no time for Hillary Clinton but she's a paragon of sanity compared to those who belong in the isolation ward.

    The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force is not an official government organization. It's just another animal rights organization. This time, they have lied about the death of Jericho the lion. I suspect that the ZCTF has previously lied about the dentist knowing that the lion hunt had been illegal before he had discovered the tracking collar.

    Is he using Japanese hardwood charcoal? Why bother doing all that on a grill using foil, as you will not taste the charcoal flavor. The only thing with his recipe is to cook the Tuna on the grill. I think he is using those briquette things which are cool, tasteless and must be pure white to kill all the chemical binders and such for making those coals.

    The cost for her luvly BBQ meal in Japan by my estimate would be ¥2700. She should stick with her NY ways in NY.

    Agreed. The western media are a bunch of feckless cowards. Completely unwilling to face the reality that they are ALL at risk from radical jihadism. How many mainstream groups published the much-maligned Muhammed cartoons? None. Only Charlie Hebdo, who took on the risk alone and paid the price. Even after that, how many outlets even bothered to show what Charlie had done to "provoke" such a response? Again, none. If 1,000 newspapers all agreed to publish at the same time, there would be no risk.
