    Funny how Vancouver, Canada didn't get mentioned. An average 75 sq metre place rents for over 185,000 yen per month and insurance for a middle of the road car costs just over 190,000 yen a year. Parking a car in the downtown area costs 340 to 510 yen an hour and gas is 115 yen per litre for cheap stuff. May not be top five but still pretty high. FYI, no company pays for your transportation to/from work there either and taxes are much higher that Japan's.

    I knew this was coming months ago when China started copying Australia's strict food importation bans on people entering China. The irony of China making claims that people can NOT bring food items into China because they are trying to protect their delicate farming and agriculture. It's SOOOOOOO obvious that China is simply trying to stop it's citizens from going to places like Japan to buy safe food and make people spend money within China.

    I had all my food thrown out on my last business trip over there earlier this month because of that stupid new game they've started. I really had to be careful what I ate while I was there and still got sick. Three days with gut wrenching runs. I lost just over two kilos because of it.

    Looks pretty cool. I had tons of Lego as a kid and built a lot of stuff with it. Nothing quite reminds you that you left a few pieces in the carpet like stepping on them in the middle of the night while barefoot.

    China brought this on. Only China is to blame. Anyone that thinks letting China continue to do what it wants without being challenged is a good idea must clearly be from the Chinese group that wants total control of the area. If you let China continue too long, China will just claim that no one said anything and so it's theirs. They are already partly claiming it as it stands. Just look at how far the world has let North Korea advance. When will it be too late to stop either of those two?

    People need to get their priorities straight...

    Governments across the globe have begun to step up measures after the H5N1 strain of flu killed six people in Hong Kong in 1997.

    I wonder how many die each year in Hong Kong from smoking related cancers. 100% preventable if people just stopped smoking.

    Tobacco use is behind six million deaths annually around the world. By 2030, if current trends continue, that number will rise to eight million.

    And they are worried that up to MAYBE 640,000, maybe, may die when 6,000,000 die each year and have been for years and will, WILL continue to die at even higher numbers?!? Someone needs to get their priorities straight!

    The sky is falling but only for the sake of print and advertising revenue.

    Next year will be too late. Unless it's to pick off the remnants of Phatty Mc Nutter's regime.

    If 15 years ago someone has said this would play out the way it is happening right now, I'm guessing most if not all of you would be saying "it would never happen".

    Now, let's imagine with this current ship of fools in control of the 'USS America', that China will be less willing to get rid of that toxic door mat aka Phatty Mc Nutty, so how do you think it will work when the US wants action that the Chinese don't and the South Koreans are too busy cleaning house to look up while the Japanese are freaking out and preparing to arm up? Sounds like a really bad B-movie that went straight to infomercial laden ultra late night TV. Sometime this year, someone is going to blink. I sure hope it's all for the best.

    It feels worse than the mid 80's did with that cold war, going to drop the bomb any moment because back then you had two sides that knew it was a losing battle to start while today we have one raging nutter hell bent on getting nukes to kill another raging nutter hell bent on doing whatever he pleases, laws be damned!

    No matter how much money you throw at dealing with stupidity, the old saying will always hold true. You can't fix stupid.

    I always find these articles amusing mainly because they point out just how stupid people can be. As if common sense was something that only the super elite could afford and the rest of us must some how make due without.

    I AM SHOCKED!!! No, I'm not and anyone who is, clearly lives in a world of fluffy cute stuffed animals and unicorns farting rainbows believing the world is full of only honest politicians and construction corporations.

    Live by the sword, die by the sword. If your organization is in the business of hacking people to get their information, don't come running to us all screaming foul when you get hacked and exposed. Some people, I mean really! No shame! Makes me sick.

    I knew he wouldn't be gone for long. One so brilliant can not just simply stop doing what one does and move on. It's in their blood and they need to live it to survive much like a shark needs to keep moving through the water or it dies.

    This story is poorly worded and the image doesn't help clarify anything.

    The window is clear and you are able to see through it with no loss of clarity. The thin laminate layer in between the glass plates has a reactive substance that when the small projector, that is outside of the whole glass plate sandwich, shines the laser light, that layer 'catches' the projected image and allow you to see it. Not really all that high tech since you still need an outside image projected which is EXACTLY how HUDs work now. Therefore this story is misleading. If they manage to place a transparent LCD membrane in between twp pieces of glass and have the image display clearly, then I'd say that would be what this should have been in order to make news.

    WOW!!! This actually hurts the brain to think that somehow this is even newsworthy. It makes my skin crawl and my teeth itch.

    NEVER going to happen for regular people unless it is 100% computer controlled. Just look on any street in any country and you will see people doing stupid and quite dangerous (read as illegal) things while driving with running red lights and changing lanes with no signals at the top of the list. Do you seriously think putting that mentality up in the air would be a good idea? Commercial pilots have a saying that the most dangerous part of their day is driving to and from the airport.

    Alex, that damn crossing needs someone from Keio post there to issue late slips for when one is tardy due that ridiculous crossing. I missed an appointment once because of it and another time about a half year later was late getting to Kura sushi. :(

    ALL airlines must do this at the check in counter and most airlines re-check everyone's passport prior to boarding as they pass the 'gate'. The reason for this is that MOST countries will levy a fine to the airline for allowing a passenger to arrive on their soil without proper authorization. This is not new, Air Canada, of all airlines, has be doing this for well over a decade and I'm pretty sure that Canada is not a Nazi state.

    Making runways longer and then using the end as the emergency stop area really doesn't help stop an aircraft, it just gives it more time to stop. The real problem is when pilots don't land where they are supposed to land. There's a saying that pilots have to the effect of nothing is more useless than runway behind you. So if you look at the majority of runway overruns, you will note that great number of them were caused by the pilots setting down WAY TOO LATE!!! This logic of adding more space to the end of the runway on a runway that is safe to begin with for those aircraft is like setting the stop line for traffic at intersections further back because people keep deciding to brake late. Fix the attitude, do NOT just simply accommodate it.
