Bungled response backed up by further bungling and the government has had a whole year to eye a response?
I can assure you that I have had nothing to do with formulating the government’s response to COVID-19.

The correct option when in an abusive relationship, as ever, is to disengage. Pull up the drawbridge to Moon and the loons across the Sea of Japan (not East Sea).

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Give the parents and extended family a stint in the slammer and I'm sure these boys will see the error of their ways. Collective punishment works.

My wife has taken to wearing hair curlers at home, and I recently found a brand-new rolling pin in one of the kitchen drawers. Should I be concerned?

We are getting close to a state where a cartel of California Big Tech moguls can decide what people are allowed to say and what not.
That is the crux of the issue. Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter - private corporations with absolutely no democratic accountability - fundamentally own and censor the public sphere. Any startup which cannot be bought out gets deplatformed and squashed.
And the morally righteous do their shilling. Incredible!

When I was there, I noticed Italian neighborhoods, Vietnamese, Turkish, Arabic, East European... and they didn't mix well, if at all

As someone with a deep aversion of social media apps, could someone tell me what this “Parler” thingy is?
Whatever it is, Amazon, Apple, and Google have hit it with a triple deplatform-combo. Why? And why now?

An apt analogy. A termite with wood is nothing but trouble.

At two months, they don´t usually recognize faces yes and do not really laugh and smile.
A very cute one! In fact, he started recognising faces at about six weeks and even laughs and “talks” to me. Now if only he would sleep through the night...

I think most of you here do not recognise the significance of current events. What we are witnessing is the death of libertarian conservatism and the concurrent rise of nationalist conservatism.
From here on in, things are going to get pretty ugly.

As father to a two-month-old boy, this just breaks my heart. Sure, in between the wailing, grunting, and farting (and that’s just the wife, by the way). I have not had much sleep this year, but seeing him laugh and smile puts a lump in my throat and makes it all worthwhile.

Or if you're America telling Britain they have to give you a non-American citizen who is somehow subject to American law...
Or like Japan telling Lebanon to hand over Ghosn. ;-)

Does the court have the ability to tell another country not under their jurisdiction to do something?
It does if you happen to be a member of the European Union... but I guess in this case the Koreans are howling at the Moon.

Spoken like a true terrorist. The sight of anarchy and revolution are things terrorists love to incite and watch.
Then we agree that, if we are to be intellectually honest, this line of thinking also applies to last summer’a civil disobedience.

A nine-year-old boy pushing a baby stroller was hit and killed by a car
I'll wager the kid raced ahead with the stroller (as kids are wont to do) and straight into the road. Neither kid not driver saw each other, and this is the result. Still 75% on the mother for not keeping her offspring under control - doubly so as it was night.

People just don't seem to get that the rules are somewhat arbitrary, developed by politicians under political pressures and are generally aimed at preventing the hospitals from being overwhelmed not at reducing infections to zero.
That's right. Save the NHS - die at home instead.

I blame Murdoch and the other press barons for brainwashing people against immigrants, trade unions, people on benefits, climate change, public ownership of anything, the EU, .... The BBC is to blame too for letting climate deniers, Nigel Farage, discredited trickledown economists, etc. go on and sprout nonsense that never gets challenged.
LET IT GO!

In the case of your scenario, you probably exaggerated the value of X. They'll say something like "Really, you claim you had 12 hours between bottle and wheel, but your BAC makes it look more like you had two hours, three at the outside. Would you like to try telling the truth?"
In this situation, I AM telling the truth! I genuinely believe (albeit incorrectly) that the alcohol has been metabolized from my body. Therefore, I can surely NOT have the guilty mind which the justice system demands for conviction; which is surely Koganezawa's defence.
For the record, in the U.K. you can be convicted of drink-driving simply my being in possession of your car keys (and with alcohol in your blood). The police use those as evidence of your guilty mind.
