    I think this is innovative and that is solves a real problem in Japan. Puzzled by the comments before mine, wrote by people who people who obviously have never invented anything and have never been to Japan during the rainy season.

    UAW, responsible for the destruction of Detroit and the three US manufactures now tries to take on Nissan? I'm all for responsible unions, but UAW is really far from being one, and it closely resembles a Mafia actually...

    I always thought the skin would come from the victims own body

    Only when the victim's affected surface is very small, or when there is time to stretch the existing skin so that an autografting can be performed (and never in an emergency situation=. The article refers to emergency patients, with very extensive skin damage, where autografts are not possible, as the skin left should not be disturbed, being necessary for other body functions.

    Nokogiri-yama is always worth visiting. It was featured in Topgear. It does have one "balcony" ridge, with wonderful views.

    We paid very little (100.000 something), as the rest of the costs were reimbursed. We chose a private clinic, where the doctors allow (and even insist) that the father actively takes part in the childbirth process. I therefore fully witnessed three births, and can say, it is a very memorable experience. I'm quite thankful for having this chance.

    The personnel and the service they provided was top-class, we really had no complaints...

    Let him swing. Don't waste more food and water on him than necessary... Took a life just like that, probably out of boredom - he just lost his right to be considered human...

    Tokyo? forget it, it takes 12 hours to sail up the Tokyo bay alone! Better find a place in Yokohama (expensive and difficult) Shizuoka or Chiba, and drive the tourists to Tokyo.

    Oh G_d - please don't remind me of the British "cuisine". I've once spent 5 days on British cuisine, my stomach reminds me even now of it... Beans and bread fried in Diesel anyone?

    British breads (cottage loaf, crumpets, muffins....) are the best.

    No, they aren't. Try some German breads in Germany. te British ones are nowhere near them, quality and diversity wise.

    British cheese, yes, Stilton cheese is really good, albeit the stench will make children cry. Beer also...

    A golden retriever is a hunting dog, and by nature require A LOT of movement and freedom just to keep them healthy. If locked inside a small room for too long, they will become moody. That being said, I never heard of a male dog to attack and kill such a small child. For dogs, children and pups are tabu, usually.

    Our neighbors have a Newfoundlander of impressive dimensions. I never met a more gentle and patient animal, especially with children. He looks more like a small bear than a dog, at more than 90 kg body weight, though, so for who doesn't know him, it will be scary.

    I'm living now in a West European country. Knowing Japan for many many years, it is shocking to see here the very high intolerance for any kind or abuse and bullying. All classes are mixed race, mixed ethnicity and often mixed languages, but still, they have less problems than the uniform classes in Japan.

    sensei258 - they are very usefull also against fire, protect against cold and rain. A hard hat does only one thing right, and that is, protect against falling objects. It is useless in a classroom context. Schools in Japan are build so that nothing will fall down on children in an earthquake (and this was proved on March 2011). Hardhats must be adjusted to be effective, a task children will not be able to do.

    The perceived danger of radiation, leading to fear amplified by the media and various scaremongering groups have damaged the people far more than the radiation itself. The levels in Japan are among the lowest in the world, lower than Europe and mainland Asia for example.

    I have really disgusting ear holes no matter how often I clean them, so these are perfect

    most likely you have wet earwax, a genetic trait, uncommon among Asian but common among Europeans. Nothing wrong or disgusting about that, it is what it is...

    Disillusioned, an anniversary can be a commemoration or a celebration. In this case, this anniversary is a commemoration. I'm speaking a Latin language, for us it's natural to understand the word's full meaning.

    But I don't see how that makes what she is saying wrong

    By changing the whole story I meant that she is being criticized mostly for her hypocrisy first, and that this hypocrisy is nowhere to be found in this article. One comment was like: "Feminism this, feminism that, Beyonce is bad... but hey, here are my tits"...

    It is a common understanding that if you do something you criticized somebody else for before, you'll get yourself criticized as well..

    The baby-hatch in Kumamoto is run by a Christian Hospital.

    Yep, the baby-hatch is fundamentally a Christian practice, more than 1000 years old. Why is there a need for having a doctor on hand, and why can't emergency facilities then host such a baby hatch? Because indirectly, allowing babies to be killed is seen more convenient than trying to rescue their life - the fundament of the Japanese society. Mizaru, Kikazaru, Yuwazaru.

    What this article didn't mention (and this changes the whole story), is that Watson criticized Beyonce for doing exactly the same thing (expressing her sexuality), a while ago. Hypocrisy.
