Thanks - I appreciate the explanation! Personally I like Osaka, but I think I can imagine where you're coming from. There is a lack of...graciousness?...that's missing from her persona sometimes, especially with the media. Maybe it's youth like you said, or maybe it's more of a social awkwardness that's an inherent part of her personality. I see it come out when she deals with the media specifically, but much less so if she's talking to another player or the fans

But don’t get me wrong, Osaka is talented for sure, she just needs to mentally grow up more and with agr comes experience and I think she’ll definitely make wiser decisions, so she’s allowed to be wild and crazy, but I just don’t like when the media tries to use this woman for political gain and that’s not cool, leave the kid alone and let her find her own way. Wish her luck and Willams, love her a lot, but she’s got enough money and she’ll be fine, she’s not hurting, they’ll be other matches.

Again? As if the police didn't now that beforehand. They're just staggering the charges so they can detain him for longer than 23 days.

This system needs to end.

And Japan still hasnt realized that no matter how much money they pay. They will not be part of group of friends (Permanent Member of UN Security Council). As Japan gets less influential in the world with the progression of time. The further and further away that dream will be. Nihon Gambare. Iminai-kedo.

I had a friend once that would go to the bar every weekend and buy drinks for everyone. Looking to buy friends as he did not know how to make real ones. In the end he was just weird and uncomfortable to hang around. Just didnt know how to be genuine and have fun. Japan is basically that odd friend that no one really wants to be around.

Cowards! Hope they don’t win any medals with that pathetic attitude. They are young healthy people to whom Covid is practically harmless.

Vaccines are why humans life 2x longer today than in 1900. Fear of vaccines has been around just as long. It wasn't until someone high in British society brought back the idea from living outside Europe that purposefully infected her son with a mild smallpox, which he recovered from, that other high-society people started doing the same. That technique spread among the wealthy, to protect against smallpox.

It was also noticed that milkmaids never got smallpox, but they all caught cowpox and recovered from it. Turns out that cowpox and smallpox are related enough that our immune systems can destroy smallpox after successfully fighting the never-fatal cowpox. Soon, rather than infecting people with a small amount smallpox (2% death rate), they started using cowpox instead.

Thanks to our understanding of DNA, we now can create vaccines to gum up the workings of COVID with the mRNA vaccines. The vaccines aren't so specific as to only work for 1 strain, but they aren't so general as to be a risk for "good things" in our bodies either. That is the balancing act that Pfizer and Moderna successfully walked.

The other vaccines - J&J, AZ, SinoVac, SputnikV each work in the old way that isn't nearly as targeted.

What is the underlying issue as to why Japan doesn’t want to use the received boxes of vaccines that are just sitting their piling up dust? Even a high school kid could work out a way in a class project to get the job done. Does it have something to do with finding a way out from hosting the Olympics or some other political reason? Dumbfounded.

I don't trust TikTok either I have a guts feeling the views are manufactured by the company running tiktok

so as to give the impression one easily gets views on the platform due to alot of people watching hence drawing more people to post on the platform and more companies to advertise on it.

For most people, this was a non-event. The news showed long lines, people filling up gas tanks, filling stations running out of fuel. TV News needs sensational stories to get viewers. I don't doubt those places exist, somewhere.

That isn't what I saw locally when driving to the grocery store. Perhaps I missed the panic or it didn't really happen everywhere? The lawn crews are all out again today around here. They were not for the last few days, which was nice.

If fuel supplies were impacted for 10 days - THAT would be bad for many people. Food delivery would be impacted. I vaguely remember the fuel shortages in the early 1970s, but don't remember our family having problems.

Since the pandemic, we've only needed to fill the car about once every 3-4 months and I happened to fill up about 10 days ago (first time in 2021), so we were fine until at least July.

The computers cracked were billing computers, not the control computers.

Late vaccinations may well be a blessing in disguise. Perhaps s long term side effects will start showing soon in the mass vaccination countries that run on hysteria.

Obviously side effects may be minimal but better safe than sorry

In Texas, you have the right to protect your property with deadly force.

Legally, if the Deputies didn't have a warrant to be on the property, then they should have left immediately when asked. In a small town, I'd expect they weren't too worried about being shot by a neighbor, but that neighbor might have been a drug dealer, human trafficker, or may have run into issues with people who were.

Texas Penal Code - PENAL § 9.42. Deadly Force to Protect Property

A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:

(1) if he would be justified in using force against the other under Section 9.41 ; and

(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:

(A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or

What is reasonable belief will be debated in court. I don't think Jeffrey Nicholas will be found innocent based on the facts in the article. Certain people have a reasonable cause to be on property - like the power & water company meter reader, and certainly the animal control employees.

Eden looks to be a place where 2 US highways cross (they have a traffic light!) and a Dairy Queen exists. Best have a pickup truck there.

In most of the US, carrying a gun in the open is fine. It is certainly 100% fine on your own property anywhere in the US if you aren't a convicted felon, or have been found mentally unstable in court. Most cities have laws against shooting on your property, unless you or your family is being threatened with deadly harm. Protecting property is seldom a reason to allow deadly force. In my Texas Law class, we joked that if we shot someone outside the house, to pull them inside to make it appear we feared for our lives.

I can't speak for the pet shops, but the breeders I know are not "scum of the earth". Quite the opposite.

My son had an internship at a pet clinic here, and the breeders who brought their dogs for checkups were responsible. No doubt he would not meet the others, but lets stay away from the generalizations.
