Here are two stories that caught my eye. First we have mutant rodents sabotaging Fukushima. Many of the TV reports I saw pointed out that (a) they still only have a lorry on site with all the switching gear on it, and (b) there is no built-in redundancy in their power supply and they are all interconnected, so when one popped a fuse making rat toast, they all fell over in succession on detecting an anomaly in the power lines, or something like that.
According to the judgment, he convinced the mother, who he met while his first wife was pregnant, with the promise of a reconciliation to their own troubled marriage on arrival in Australia.
But that didn’t happen. Pregnant and alone, she was convinced to hand her in-laws legal guardianship of the boy while she returned to Japan, where her ex-husband was working, to sort out her affairs.
While she was there, she caught him cheating with his now fiance. When she called her mother-in-law to declare she wanted her son back, she was told the boy was going to New Zealand to live.
This story also has a little bit of Fookooshimar:
He granted the mother sole parental responsibility, finding the boy was not at "unacceptable risk" from radiation exposure back in Japan.
Looking at the court judgement (PDF), it appears that the mother lives in Tokyo, and paragraph 191 says:
Each country has risks. In Australia, there are risks from venomous spiders, sharks, bushfires, floods and other natural or man-made dangers. In the Court’s view it is not a matter of placing a child in a position where the risks of the ordinary exigencies of life are non-existent.
