Sorry about that. But when I mean location, I meant it as this would be happening in the United States, where jaywalking is mostly illegal. As of now, I don't know any states that allows jaywalking to be legal.

ugh... now I don't remember the 2nd part of the question now >.<

ps: I'll try to remember it.

The driver can be drunk, drugged or otherwise partially incapacitated, smoking a cigar or eating, it was your fault for jumping in front of him.

Jaywalking (or what appears to be it) is legal and the driver can be held responsible if he doesn't even give you priority, let alone run you over, in "pedestrian areas" (sp? sorry the term may be different). These are not just any area where you walk but special areas designated under special circumstances. Vehicles are also forced to keep a very low speed limit and there the pedestrians literally own the road.
I'm pretty sure that here, it is never, under any circumstance, legal to hit a pedestrian with your car, jaywalking or not. (There is a never applied fine for jaywalking.)

Stop browsing the net and writing posts while you're driving!

I never said purposely hitting someone with your car is legal. By legal I was referring to "jaywalking is legal" that Konpachi mentioned.

You said the driver wouldn't be held responsible. That if you were jaywalking and got hit, it was "tough luck".

Here, a driver is by law required to be in control of his vehicle at all time, so as to not get into accidents even if the pedestrians around him - or the other drivers - are clumsy idiots. Of course, the law isn't applied blindly and I doubt you'd be punished if someone throws himself under your wheels. But, on its own, "the guy was jaywalking" is not an excuse for failing to avoid him.

Did I accidently suggest otherwise?

Well, apparently, in some countries, a driver whose vehicle hits a jaywalker will have different levels of responsibility depending on how far from the jaywalker he is.

If he is on the lane NEXT to the pavement, he is not to blame.
the next lane after - 25%
2 lanes away - 50%
3 lanes away - 75%
4 lanes away - 90%
...

I am having a hard time remembering what Forum software anime suki used before vBulletin. Could someone tell me what it was? I think it switched over in 2004. Thanks

It switched in 2003. I think the old one was Invision Power Board or maybe burning boards something.

Right... after some Net browsing, thought I'd try here. I'm looking for a particular style of furin (japanese wind chimes). Examples:

Recommendations to a retail site that is in or ships to the USA would be appreciated. Almost anyone sells the other kinds but these seem to be non-existent so far...
(Plan B: just make the things, art project ftw).

I've been poking into Japan's National Public Safety Commission out of pure curiosity, and something occurred to me.

Is there some quirk in the way Japanese special forces are organised that inspire creators like Masamune Shirow to subsume different branches under individual ministries? In the world of Ghost in the Shell, for example, Public Security Section 9 frequently clashes against other sections, such as Section 6, which I vaguely recall belonging to the foreign ministry. There is also a Section 4, which belongs to the defence ministry, if I'm not mistaken (probably am; it's been a long time since I've read the manga).

Reason I asked is because something similar occurs in the hume nation of Bastok, from Square-Enix's FFXI.

The special forces of this particular nation — known as "musketeers" — again serve under different ministries. The Iron Musketeers serve the Ministry of Trade & Industry, the Gold Musketeers (spies, in effect) serve the Ministry of Mining and finally, the elite Mythril Musketeers, who answer only to the senate-elected president.

It's explained in season 2.

But season 2 sucks anyways, precisely because they want to give an explanation to the whole deal (and a crappy one at that, to boot). I enjoyed the first season far more because of the mysteriousness of it all.

Well, that really doesn’t exist, at least in Hollywood it doesn’t, and what you would mean when you reffer to a long time? 5 years?

In the meantime, although not officially married, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins have been together since mid 80's ...

There is also Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan, they have been married since the dawn of time...

genryou: I think that's Aya Hirano. A Japanese voice actress. I'm pretty sure anyway, but don't take my sure word for it.
