Learner driver flips car on roof in Oxford

Paramedics treated the woman and the instructor for cuts to their hands and elbows at the scene of Sunday's crash.

BSM described the crash as a "freak incident" and said it took health and safety very seriously.

Communications manager Paul Shepherd said: "We have spoken to the learner driver who is fine and is already hoping to book her next lesson with us soon.
That must really crush your confidence in driving.

The most I ever had to worry about was to not stall when setting off on a local steep hillside road. Stalled twice in a row with a ton of cars behind, while trying not to roll too far back... quite mild compared to this.

It reminds me of when my driving instructor brought a newspaper to a lesson featuring an article of an old student of his. The student managed to flip his brand new car that his parents had bought him on his first day after passing his test...

OMG! I'd have been crapping myself if I did that in the Toyota!

Otaku Uproar over Hirano Aya's Ring

I actually read this at MAL but it is very disturbing.

Hirano Aya was photographed with a ring, and 2ch went into a huge firestorm with disillusioned people crying their hearts out.

Image in question posted on Aya's official diary on April 11th 2010.

Quoting from the article:

"You betrayed us. How dare you betray us."
"I cried and cried, and got so angry I punched the LCD of my PC so hard it broke. It's my phone next."
"My life's boring. My life's boring. My life's boring"
"That's not a ring. That's not a ring. That's not a ring"


It becomes even worse with even a death threat.

"I will rape Hirano Aya then kill her."

Source article (in Japanese)

I'm face-palming so much right now. Why can't people just be happy for others? Damn extremists...

Is it that shocking that a woman can go out and get married?

I suppose they avoid watching romances? Do they start punching their monitors whenever the heroine gets all lovey-dovey with the hero?

Did they all fantasize getting together with her? Surely it doesn't take much more fantasizing-ability to imagine her still being single.

Come on. It's just a ring.
Unless Hirano-san declares that it has a romantic meaning, it's not of any interest. :P

Wow, hardcore otaku can be such yandere folk. *shudders*

It's 2CH... judging off of its American imitators, I'm not sure how much of the stuff on there I'd take at face value. Half those posters probably also claim to have no interest in 3D girls.

Just leave AYA ALONE!! Yes, some of us probably think she is incredibly attractive but come on!! It's her decision so let her be happy.

At this rate, I won't be surprised if Aya turns into the next Britney Spears. So please, leave her alone already. You don't have to send her death threats.

Well, to be fair, she did break the rule about Japanese voice actresses are supposed to be lesbians:

It only works in cold climates. Woollen shirt + nylon jacket = POWAAAAAAA.

Anyone know where I can get a woolen shirt which is able to store electrostatic power?

Aya isn't on the list but...

Who is this Megumi with Satomi?

And who is this Asuka Ogabe?

Get rid of those two and leave Yoko/Satomi alone to their own devices. And maybe we'll let Aki/Minako in.


But it would seem Aki is too busy with her orgy with Mugi, Koume, Nagi and Jasmine.

Also...Ryoko and Kana?

Tough luck, Hiro and Miyako.

Saki and Marina? I thought Inami was a manhater. Guess, Natsuru is now forced to stay in permanent girl mode.
