    I take the train from this station back home from work daily (use another to get to work). It's always spooky for me, the last 6 alphabets of the station name when split into two words....

    his client is mentally incompetent

    As long as he knew to use a knife to stab, stabbing will kill the boy, to do that is a crime and then went ahead executing it, he can be as dumb as he likes but he needs to be punished. Else the next violent crime he commits will make everyone look like a bunch of morons. And we've seen that often enough.

    some chemical name like n3 di-2 methyl hydrolate or something

    Bentley is referring to the name used while dealing. I guess they neither used 'dangerous drug' nor 'some chemical name like n3 di-2 methyl hydrolate or something'. Each of these concoctions is bound to have a 'street name', so to say.

    Nice. The photography tweak makes it look like the structure's on fire, but it's actually monks carrying torches along the balcony. Took me a while plus wiki to figure that out.

    in many cases the girl cries rape if she wants to get the guy in trouble.

    But this article is not discussing the investigation/conviction bit. It is only discussing the punishment, post conviction. What you state is a different matter altogether.

    Great. Hope this is a precursor to some seriously radical technology.

    Such incident should never happen in Japan

    It shouldn't happen anywhere.

    Great, so we start it with race, then country and now down to prefecture, that too one that was badly hit and not only Japan, but the WHOLE WORLD came to empathise with. So sad. And Radium is the one that glows, not Uranium dumbo sensei. Go consult chemistry sensei in the faculty room.

    “A different high school girl made a nasty remark to me, calling me ‘gross,’ so I was irritated.”

    Buddy, here's a free-of-charge Plan-B for you.

    Stop being gross if you are. I can't tell, but you'd know. (side remark: Even if you were actually gross, I wouldn't say it to your face but that's another story. I don't know your situation but there's nobody without one) // Smell good, take regular showers. You have enough time as you currently work part-time. // If someone calls you gross, just let it go man there are many who'd give you a smile back if you were nice enough to give them one. Although you'd have to be a non-idiot to be capable of that // Stop doing stupid things to teenage kids, you're 40 now. // ...especially the wrong ones, silly. // Analyse why the 'gross' comment came. I hope it was your condition and not an action. // In the latter case, disregard this plan, you need stronger medication.

    Grandpa is not to be fully blamed here. The system that allowed a license to an 88 yo with dementia (recorded or not) clearly has loopholes. They should be required go through interviews and physical check-ups or similar after a certain age and re-validate their licenses every 6 months or maybe even lesser. Becsue the deterioration rate for reflexes and general physical ability is higher at that age. May save someone's life. So so sorry for Masaru's parents.

    The man is described as being in his 50s and was dressed all in black.

    Narrowed it down to 2.5 million. Good

    Serves them right I guess, for not obtaining due permission.

    I walk on tracks every day. No big deal.

    Lol, you should give some more background to that comment :)

    Why did this jumper make the news?

    Probably because of her age. Generally at that age, you just want to live on till you can. Just my guess.

    Since it's Japan, maybe one of those folding fans?

    Or a giant fan?

    Haha nice one. But there's no air/atmosphere remember?

    Well, as Jimbly pointed out this was an experimental mission. They should get marks for intent and effort.

    50 microns. Wow. For those familiar with feeler gauges, that's the thinnest (generally) in the set at 0.05mm. Half the average thickness of your average sheet of copy paper.

    But i do agree with some posters that there needs to be more explanation than just material info. Laws of thermodynamics dictate you need a heat sink for the system to be actually called an air conditioner. The explanation above honestly, just indicates towards a super impressive insulation sheet.

    They don't have the same values

    Unless the down votes are for the assumption that the son killed her. It's also possible he was witness to the act and too frightened to stay back. Going purely by the info available in this article.

    In any case, sorry for her.

    My son is 6 y.o. and hates "that PPAP guy". In fact when i just want to irk him, I hum (rap?) PPAP and the look on his face is pecious. Don't expect he'll be much of a Bieber fan either.

    Alber Einstein, Henry Kissinger, Sigmund Freud, Madeleine Albright, they were all refugees! Anne Frank was denied a visa to the U.S.

    The times might've changed a bit since then...
