Sometimes I don't understand the logic behind these prison sentences.
Throw logic out the window when you're dealing with bruised egos.

She sought the advice of an otolaryngologist who told her, "Nothing can be done." Another doctor prescribed her traditional "kampo" herbal medicine, but her condition did not improve.
Sadly, this sums up a lot of doctors here.

Looking for volunteers when over 80% of Japanese people think the games should be cancelled entirely. Someone's gonna be disappointed these frugal individuals don't show up.

This mindset shouldn't be too surprising considering these old fossils were never home to actually interact with their families to begin with.

Are Japanese politicians elected just so they can throw up their hands and say "しょうがない" at every problem that comes our way? I say our because these old goons are driven around everywhere and don't need to interact with us common folk. Make them stand in a packed Tokyo train during rush hour and they might change their minds.

Extend the SoE, you say? Meanwhile, at my office in Osaka, people continue to wear masks below their nose or take them off entirely when entering from outside. It baffles me how selfish and ignorant these people are.

If there was ever any doubt as to how greedy and corrupt the IOC was, the Tokyo olympics should be a testament to how vile they really are.
Last year, Canada was right to withdrawal from the games after the pandemic started surging.
It's time for countries to prove their loyalty to their athletes by dropping out of the games.

It is pretty funny how alt-righters are already cannibalizing Trump after he waved the white flag during during his speech. It looks like this movement won't end with a new president, either.

After speaking on this topic with several Japanese men, I doubt anything will ever come of it. They're utterly convinced Korean comfort women willingly entered a "social contract" with Japanese soldiers, thus clearing them of any wrongdoing. The mental gymnastics these people go through is impressive in its absurdity.

Whose money is being used for this bribery?
Thsts right, you guessed it...
Surely it's money out of Takahashi's own pocket and not at the taxpayer's expense. Japan has a squeaky clean history with these matters and would never sink to that level of depravity.

Xbox has a ton of great games. PS5 always does well in Japan because it's made by a Japanese company and that's all. Oh and they offer more anime type otaku games so....
Because the Xbox One outsold the PS4 in every other country besides Japan. Oh, wait...

Regardless of whether he's actually guilty, it's ludicrous that the deck is being stacked against him. What happened to presumed innocence and the burden of proof being on the prosecutor?
