An Odd Building in Japan

In the early 1980s, a piece of land in downtown Osaka, Japan, was due for an upgrade. The landowners wanted a big new building on the valuable real estate. The highway department planned an expressway through the neighborhood, and wanted to put an exit ramp across the property. The ensuing fight stalled both plans for years. But eventually a compromise was reached, and both were built on the same plot of land. You can see how they did that in the picture.  
The Gate Tower is one of the strangest buildings in Japan with a freeway running through the center in a tunnel. Plans for the building began in 1983 and because of difficulties in negotiations, it was delayed until changes in the building codes could be legislated and passed to allow its legal construction. Previously, buildings and highways were not allowed to be built in such close proximity. The building was completed in 1992.
The Gate Tower is just one of Ten of the Weirdest Looking Buildings in Japan. Others include a small private home with 32 rooms, homes built on top of other homes, a home with holes in it, and more.

How Is Prangent Formed

It’s not right to make fun of someone who asks a question in order to learn something. It’s not kind to make fun of people who are low on the literacy scale, speak English as a second language, or can’t type well. At the same time, you have to wonder how so many people in the above categories end up on Yahoo Answers, asking the same questions. So enjoy this compilation of questions about pregnancy, and just be glad they are all anonymous (contains NSFW language). Oh yeah, do not watch this while consuming liquid.

Man caught in police sting had arranged to pay prostitute with cheeseburger and fries

Police in Casper, Wyoming, arrested four women suspected of prostitution and one man suspected of soliciting prostitutes in an undercover operation on Thursday evening.
Police arrested Bailey Bruce, of Evansville; Cassandra Combs, of St. Paul, Minnesota; Canisha Martinez, of Casper; and Alexandra Tyler, who was homeless, on suspicion of prostitution. Officers also arrested 22-year-old David Mangus, of Casper, on suspicion of soliciting prostitution.
Undercover police officers contacted the women through online advertisements and the women agreed to perform sex acts in exchange for payment ranging from $150 to $350, according to arrest affidavits. Police arrested the women when they arrived at the location where they previously agreed to meet.
Mangus responded to an online ad posted by officers and agreed to pay an undercover officer posing as a prostitute a quarter-pound cheeseburger and medium fries from McDonald’s for sex, according to an arrest affidavit. Officers arrested Mangus when he arrived at the predetermined location with the bag of food. “Hookin’ for cheeseburgers isn’t normal,” Detective Dan Dundas said. Mangus was booked into the Natrona County jail and later released.

Police remind residents to lock their doors after man entered home, stripped and cooked eggs

Police are reminding residents of Vancouver, Canada, to lock their doors and windows after a man was arrested in connection with an unusual home invasion. Investigators said a 35-year-old walked into a home on Tuesday night, through a closed but unlocked door. He removed all of his clothing, took eggs out of the fridge and began making a meal in the kitchen, police said.
He managed to damage the stove and microwave during his meal preparation. A resident of the home was in another room watching TV, but when he heard the intruder he assumed it was his roommate.
He decided to investigate anyway, and found a naked stranger in his kitchen. The resident chased the man out of the house and then called police, who arrested a suspect a few blocks away. Police have recommended that the Crown lay charges of mischief and break-and-enter.
