Spitting, shooting and rejection.

From the excellent Boing-Boing.

"A man has been arrested in Japan for carrying out 5 drive-by coffee spitting attacks on schoolgirl pedestrians. In all of the attacks, he spit coffee out his car window and into the faces of the girls before quickly driving away."
The spitter, who was nicknamed “Coffee Bukake Man” [コーヒーぶっかけ男] by locals, had carried out 5 attacks since the end of October. All of his victims were junior high school or high school girls wearing their uniforms, and all of the attacks involved spitting coffee onto their faces from his car window. His final attack took place on December 7th, when a 16-year-old schoolgirl he spit on was able to come to her senses quickly enough to spot his license plate number and memorize it. This led to the arrest of 26 year-old Yoshiro Sumiyama, who admitted attacking the girls. Sumiyama told police that he was irritated after having been dumped by a woman and carried out the spitting attacks to relieve some stress.'

Stress? Seriously what a dumb shit. I'm glad it was 'only' coffee he was hitting them with, it could just have easily been far more serious.
Why is it that when people feel rejected or are rejected by one person, they feel obliged to take it out on everyone else? It's like those losers who shoot up schools over some imagined slight. Or shoot up churches and kill innocent people who have done them no harm. Or shoot up shoppers in a mall a few weeks before christmas because your girlfriend left you. What is it with making other people suffer because you suffered a rejection? Why oh why can't these assholes just deal with rejection like the rest of us and move bloody on?
Spitting I'm against it.
Attacking innocent folk because you are a loser, I'm against that too.

There are plenty of men taking breath who want to punish women for denying them access to pussy. Gee, I couldn't imagine why his girlfriend dumped him.
And you're right, this could have been much worse.

Ever seen the film about the super heroes? Called Superhero in fact. They've got weird powers, like the shoveller, and fork man or whatever his name is, then what about coffee bukake man?
If you're being attacked by a young uniformed schoolgirl (I fucking wish) he jumps out of Starbucks and spits cappochino in her face.
I'd buy that film.

The Japs are weird. Ask Lindy.

Isn't Ben Stiller and Janeane Garofalo in that? Or am I completely off base?
Medbh, imagine indeed. He sounds a delight.

That film with just about everybody in it as superheroes - over here it's called "Mystery Men," not sure if it was released under a different title overseas.

Saw bits of it last night, ironically. It failed in the box office here, but I laughed out loud a few times - it may end up being one of those 'cult classics.' Better than expected.

Anyway, yeah, all of the above. It's an extension of the guy who thinks all women who don't respond positively to their lame pull attempts are lesbians. Spitting coffee on a high school girl - just silly. What a jackass.

There's a guy on the public transportation system here these days who is flashing teenage girls and feeling them up. I can't believe one of them hasn't punched him in the neck yet. Sooner or later he'll encounter the one teenage girl with that capability. I can't wait.

And oh, how we'll all laugh...

Quite right. When I was twenty-one a man grabbed my left breast as I was coming down the stairs of a coffee shop. I was so shocked by it that I just kept walking down the steps. I literally couldn't believe the fucking cheek of him.
However, I was accosted in a similar fashion on the lower Rathmines road a year later by a grinning twat and I can assure you by the time I was finished lambasting him he wished he was never born. I fucking HATE being yelled at in the street or rubbed up or felt up in any way shape or form, the amount of shit I hear when I'm out running is ridiculous. Even with the ipod on.
Seriously, if a woman hasn't bowed and applauded your AMAZINGLY witty comments the first time, calling her a stuck up cunt won't win her over either.

It WAS fucking Mystery Men right enough.

First you were grabbed by the breast, and then in the lower Rathmines road. Is it just me? Or is my flippancy in such frightening matters abhorent?

Docky, the unpardonables are ripe for the plucking with those lines.

One of my favorite stories ever happened in the autumn of 2002. School girls at St. Maria Goretti high school in Philly were being stalked by a guy who exposed himself to many of them. There were flyers up and everyone was alerted. One day he appeared and a group of girls chased his ass down and held him until the police arrived. If I remember correctly, they knocked a few of his teeth out in the process. I was so proud of them.

When I lived in Japan I felt incredibly safe all the time, except on two occasions. One, was just hideous. It was terrifying and I felt like I was trapped in a really bad film. Afterwards I was as a wreck and really angry for a long time, not just because it was simply truly awful but because I'd been robbed of feeling secure and safe. But the thing is - the guy involved wasn't Japanese.

The other time, the guy was Japanese and it would be almost laughable - if it wasn't so sad. I was on the train on the way home and a perfectly respectable, well dressed 50 something Japanese man was sitting opposite me and he kept leaning over to the side and dropping his head down. His head would hit the seat and then he would sit up, with a look that suggested, 'Oh silly old me, how on earth did my head fall on to the seat like that?'I couldn't work out what he was doing - then i twigged, the dirty old fucker was trying to look up my skirt! Harmless, but pathetic and sick. I screamed at him in English which would have meant nothing to him (apart from the fact that the batshit crazy blonde girl was making alot of angry noise) and he pretended not to hear me. We wouldn't own his crime - even worse. We both got off at the next stop. I happened to bump into my flatmate (something which just didn't happen in Tokyo) and told him was happened. He's a big guy and chased after him and seriously abused him in Japanese and fully intimidated him. The guy was shit scared and ran off. I saw him the next day in the 7/11 and he dropped what he was buying and ran out of the store. I felt quite smug (take that, dirty old man).

I think my point is that Coffee Bukake Man really doesn't surprise me after Falling Over Looking Up Skirt Man.

Oh Gimme - EVERYONE's in Mystery Men.

Tom Waits, Eddie Izzard, Hank Azaria, Bill Macy, the DIVINE Jeanine Garofalo, Ben Stiller, Greg Kinnear, Geoffrey Rush, Paul Reubens...hell of a cast.

Tom Waits also surprised me by showing up in Domino, that too-arty-and-up-its-own-arse flick with Keira Knightly and Mickey Rourke.

Tom Waits. Oh, so cool.

As for Nippon? Well..this is a country where the discerning gentleman can purchase soiled knickers from a fucking vending machine.
