TOKYO: A Japanese man who stabbed his father to death with a chopstick was arrested on Thursday (Jun 16), police said.

Michikazu Ikeuchi, 51, admitted that he stabbed his 80-year-old father in the throat with a 30cm-long wooden cooking chopstick on Wednesday night after a quarrel at their home in Osaka, western Japan, according to police.

I've got stainless steel Korean jeotgarak. If you sharpened the tips, you could throw them as weapons.

I've yet to be able to attend a Paul-E-Palooza. I hope to, the next time.

A plane passenger has threatened a flight attendant with a fountain pen, forcing an Air China flight bound for Beijing to make an unscheduled landing, according to the country's civil aviation authority.

In a brief statement on its website, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said a male passenger, who it did not identify, on Air China Flight 1350 attempted to use the pen to hold the flight attendant "under duress".

Passengers and crew were unharmed, the statement said, without providing any further details.

Chinese police said preliminary investigations found the 41-year-old passenger, identified only by his last name Xu, had a "history of mental illness".


Had to get in the mental unfit plug when discussing the assault.

Chopsticks can and have been used as a weapon for a long time.
Nothing to see here...move along.
