Me still waiting for my invitation!

A 140kg Hubbard is competing in 87 kg up category 

Hubbard can't even compete in that weight class in the men's category and now he's competing in the women's 87kg?

A technicality!

87 kg is the highest women's category.

Only one woman was 100kg previously most of the heavyweight women are no more than 90kg

I did find out there was talks and plans to add a new higher category but it was scrapped when they realised the only one competing that would be in it would be Hubbard.

I guess the "I'm still waiting to be notified when I can get vaccinated." is nearly the same as "I have the vouchers, I know when I can start making reservations in my own ward (from mid July - good grief), and/but I'm not able to make a reservation at the mass vaccine centre due to it being fully booked". Have been trying for hours to get a slot in the Otemachi centre, to no avail.

Okay, hypothetical question; what if there was a female-born athlete that had a similar bone density and muscle development to a male? Would you say she should be banned?

Nope, there would be no issue. There have always been people with exceptional bodies, nothing to do with "identity". Next question?

here we see a photo of a patient being led into walled off area for privacy during a vaccination - privacy is of course respected at all times, with overhead cameras, tv crews and a larger cluster of people in close proximity inside the area than outside.

All things considered, who would want to go to any events?

Interesting to see that the Tokyo University is not included, probably the size makes it too similar to the National Government and it is still in the middle of meetings and consultations to decide what to do.

29-year-old Takeharu Komiya is a lawyer living in Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo. He encouraged the high school girl (age 15-18 years) to run away from her home in Saitama without informing her parents. No indication if sex had happened. The man was criminally wrong. He also caused pain for her parents who should sue him for damages. Will his offence have him struck off the bar?

i dont want be part of experiment sorry.dont trust these "experimental vaccines"-any of them.

If you consider the current situation an experiment that means you are part of it, the difference is that you are part of the negative control group, that will be exposed to the new variants without the help of the vaccine and whose data can be used to determine more closely the benefits.

I so love the joke "the Olympics are needed to lift spirits" " needed for the wellbeing of mankind" etc...

Here is a reality check.

They are the games for the RICH and powerful plain and simple.

The last Olympics the top 10 countries took home over half the gold, the same 10 took home half the silver and bronze.

The next 10 countries all first world took home well over half the remaining medals.

There are 205 Nations and dependencies at the games and 20 rich and powerful countries take home nearly all the medals.

These are the countries that finance their teams, with government money sponsors money, the best equipment, coaches, etc..

The rest have near zero chance training with donated outdated equipment, no budget or money, etc...

We could remove 180 countries and dependencies from the games and the competition and medal count wouldn't be much different.

That is how big a joke these games are.

She has since met all of the requirements of the International Olympic Committee’s regulations for trans athletes and fair competition.

Plenty of posters said the Olympics would following the advice of experts and held under the high test scrutiny. I guess you didn’t mean this huh?

Take the package.

I think this was an emergency decision after the first feedback received from the Uganda delegation about the wearability of Japanese standard size condoms. Someone at the Olympics Committee is now writing on each of them “Tokyo 2020 souvenir - Do not try wearing it”. *

*Yes this comment’ like Japan itself, includes both negative and ‘positive’ racist stereotypes and does not reflect reality. Unfortunately that doesn’t make it less likely or logic than any other reason that might have brought to this decision, which also does not reflect reality.

> What do you think a duty is?

Not sure to what you are referring because again, the quote I supplied is below and there is no mention of duty.

If circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens. ***Alexander Hamilton*,** Federalist No. 28, January 10, 1788

If you do not compare with the general population, how can anyone say it is "unusual high incidence"?!!!!

Because this has not been described as happening in the normal population anywhere, and one fifth of the people complaining of pain, difficult of breath or high blood pressure without any other visible cause in just 30 days of following is definitely something that would have been noticed by even a badly prepared epidemiologist.

And the exact same thing can said with regards to the vaccine. It’s an EUA approval only.

That makes no sense, it has been proved to be hugely safer than the infection by any parameter possible, it is then something well know.

An Emergency that DOES NOT apply to the majority of the population. Clearly indicated by the data.

Emergency approval do not need to apply to the majority of the population, this is a a tool to let anybody that is exposed to more risk from the disease than from the vaccine to be immunized to reduce their risk, and this applies specially to vulnerable people of all ages that benefit much more from the vaccine than regular people and that could not be vaccinated without an EUA.

Should named them Thunder & Lightning Bolt.

That might have been “very, very frightening”.

Greatest Olympian ever. Legend.

Bolt is great, no doubt, but I'm a big fan of Jesse Owens. He overcame real hardships, secured 4 gold medals, 3 of which were new world records and the 4th was a tie for the world record - and he did it all within 45 minutes.

And he snubbed Hitler. Not many people have a resume like him!

If the weightlifting thing does not work out, Hubbard could always join the All Blacks.

As the entire scrum.

Kind of is actually, that’s why it’s been hard on Dems to eradicate or amend it.

Understanding constitutional law and changing the constitution see two different things. Nice demonstration of your understand.

China will destroy all that was Hong Kong, a free and vibrant society, and turn it into the cesspool the mainland is.

Will destroy HK? It has already been destroyed, and is simply a puppet region of Communist China. Hong Kong is an extremely dangerous police state, where even talk of democracy is an arrestable offense. Freedom is outlawed. It is almost a carbon copy of Germany under the Nazis in the 1930s.

Hong Kong is now effectively the sewer of China.

Boycott Hong Kong. Boycott Communist China. Boycott the Genocide games 2022.

To clarify: what do you think it means to say: 

that [the people] may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed

What do you think a duty is?

Perhaps adding a special dye that turns them gold, silver and bronze, depending on performance, might raise sales.

I lived on the streets one time. I would rather stay in an apartment with a toilet and electricity.

Glad it’s behind you, sorry to here it happened.

Yes, very true, but that won’t happen to the 2nd amendment, now if the Dems want to kill their future chances for Congress and the Presidency, they should try it, but they won’t for all their bluster.

While I'm sure that this would have been your argument for the validity of the 18th amendment, the 21st amendment was actually good. Consider it.

Rhetorical question?

Yes.

Then why are you misinterpreting the law?

I am not.

Dude--The Constitution is federal law. The court case interprets it.

You cited a decision from a court circuit, which may not be the correct interpretation. Do you understand how the US legal system works? It's fine if you don't. Most people aren't lawyers.

I never said that.

Oh, weird, I could have sworn that you cited:

it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright, 5 June 1824

But I guess I'm looking at an imaginary post.

Wrong again.

Sorry, I'm right.

Here is the quote again---pick out the line that says "people must carry guns" ---happy to wait for your answer as you argue with Hamilton:

if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens. **Alexander Hamilton,** Federalist No. 28, January 10, 1788

I'm arguing with a quote you gave from Jefferson. And now you're giving me a different quote? Come on, friend. Try and keep it straight.

But if Hamilton is your go-to, I suppose you must agree with his proposition that cabinet positions be inherited, like a Lordly, British system. Am I right?

Okay, hypothetical question; what if there was a female-born athlete that had a similar bone density and muscle development to a male? Would you say she should be banned?

Well that depends on certain things, if that is the case then the probably is they will also have far higher testosterone in which case they will be treated like a transgender.

But bone density is only part of the advantage hemoglobin and blood volume, lung capacity, heart size are all a factor.

I imagine if a female had the hemoglobin of a man and the oxigen saturation of a man it would trigger a blood doping investigation.

From what I have read transgender Athletes are expected to show higher oxygenation levels than born female so no investigation into possible blood doping.

So basically if such a female existed they would be subjected to far more scrutiny than the transgender.
