Giant bluefin tuna sells for $396,000.00

That is one expensive fish!

A massive 342-kilogram bluefin tuna caught off the coast of Hokkaido in northern Japan fetched a record 32.49 million yen (about $396,000) at the start of the first business day of 2011 in the famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. This translates to a whopping 95,000 yen ($1,157) per kilogram of fish meat. Or about 1 gram of tuna on a 100-yen sushi sold in the popular conveyor-belt sushi restaurants in Japan.

The catch will be split by the high-end Kyubei restaurant in Tokyo and Hongkong-based Itamae Sushi chain.

The previous record holder was a 202-kilogram fish sold for 20.2 million yen way back in 2001, when prices were much more reasonable than in these recession-infested times.

Corporal Punishment

I just found this on youtube. It has nothing to do with Japan or Philippines but it has to do with schools all around the world and this documents it in Korea.

Are you against or with it?
