"Love Padlock" Ritual Poses Injury Risk to Lovebirds


Japan's Nomasaki lighthouse is starting to concern officials in nearby Mihama because its security fence is yet again loaded down with "uncountable" padlocks from young couples wishing to proclaim their love for each other, and faces collapse.

The fence, rebuilt once, still may not be sturdy enough and could crush someone. "We have tried several times to take the padlocks off the fence, using bolt cutters, but it's a lot of hard work and they just keep coming back again," said an official.

"We are really worried that the fence could fall on someone and seriously injure them." A heart-shaped monument nearby hasn't helped."We are trying to tell people about this other marker, which has been built just for them, but no-one listens to us."

Just build a fence that will support an estimated weight & then some.

I love the idea!

  NO ONE  
not no-one
not noone



I've seen a steady rise in the poor grammar of people who choose to beleive 'noone' to be the correct spelling, or even acceptable error in spelling.

Just use noone if you think that's right.

helps me avoid the idiots.

Ha ha ha,

"choose to beleive... is the correct spelling".

Avoid the idiots? Yes. You do that.

  I believe that if I were going to rant  
about poor grammar/spelling and call people idiots, I would use spell check before clicking "submit". But, that's just me, what can I say.
