Posted in: Australian economy storms ahead as COVID recovery turns V-shaped See in context

All this while standing up to our big dragon brothers in the North having hissy fits and trying to coerce us into line through bully tactics and a trade war. Makes you proud to be an Aussie ay ;p

Record prices and exports of our number one earner, iron ore, to that very big dragon up north, has certainly helped our bottom line!

Too much money to be made from investments, factories and cheap labour. I highly doubt Japan will cut off all aid to Burma as these activists suggest.

Trump is an habitual loser. Just like all those pieces of garbage who voted for him.

Posted in: Japan to begin allowing foreign Olympic athletes' entry next month: Nikkei See in context

I approve of this on the condition that Olympic volunteers in high viz jackets follow the athletes around 24/7 to make sure they only go to their accom and sporting venues as "restricted" by the government.

LOL. I can picture it now. 78 year old volunteer Jiro, wearing high viz, in hot pursuit of a group of Kenyans who have gone rogue and ducked into a souvenir shop on the way back to the athletes village.

Posted in: Man killed after leaping from platform into oncoming train in Kobe See in context

I feel for the train driver and commuters waiting on the platform - and for the family of this man. They may well end up being held financially responsible by commuters angry at missing meetings and losing work. It happen in Japan.

Sad for the man, but there are always a million better options than risking the lives of innocent people by jumping in front of a train.

Posted in: 50 LDP lawmakers urge local members to oppose separate surnames See in context

Dinosaurs clearly not living in the 21st century.

If men are legally allowed to change their names to their wives surname (as shown in an article here recently) there should be no barrier for women to retain their birth surname.

Posted in: Brisbane already preparing for 2032 Olympics See in context

Is the Queensland government really that dumb that they want to throw away countless billions of dollars into this endless financial black hole? Whatever it is estimated to cost, quadruple it. Money that should be put into hospitals and schools.

Learn from Tokyo's mistakes. Let other suckers have what this circus has become.

Good on her.

What is the obsession with geriatric Japanese men (especially politicians) dying their hair jet black, and making rules so even kids with natural brown colour, have to follow suit? Weird and embarassing.

Embrace your natural self, kids!

The officer said one Marine, citing a widely circulated and false conspiracy theory, said: “I heard that this thing is actually a tracking device.”

Wow, "tracking device"? Sounds like a Trump voter! If this is reflective of the standard of intelligence in the US Military, I think they need to work harder on recruitment.

Posted in: Why a Japanese man proudly took his wife's last name See in context

I find it odd that this is allowed (fair enough in my mind) yet a woman cannot keep her maiden name when she marries. Both examples require changes on the family register.

Posted in: Over 100 injured, trains halted after M7.3 quake strikes northeastern Japan See in context

@ Mr Kipling - fair enough. It wasnt you that made the "body bags" comment about other countries that just sounds boastful and disrespectful. Lets pinch ourselves we won the lottery of living in first world nations - and still prepare for anything that could happen! Earthquakes and their resulting disaster events still kill many in Japan (yes - less than many other places), and many deaths can still be avoided.

Posted in: Over 100 injured, trains halted after M7.3 quake strikes northeastern Japan See in context

Stay safe everyone. Get those emergency kits restocked if they arent already!

Japan's are very good in terms of earthquakes. A 7.3 in Pakistan, Indonesia or Iran would kill thousands. In Japan... not a single fatality.

In many countries they would be running out of body bags.

I dont understand how a few people try to turn an earthquake into a nationalist chest-thumping exercise. Weird and distasteful.

Posted in: A look at what quarantine is like in Japan See in context

I do not know a single foreigner who has entered Japan and followed the 14 day quarantine procedure properly. It's like letting a dog off a leash, only a rare few can be trusted.

There are infinitely more Japanese returnees than foreigners who have not followed quarantine. I guess only "a rare few Japanese can be trusted" too?

We will do what we need to to stay on top of this because living normally and virus free is better than the alternatives.

Well said. Getting on with things, making short term sacrifices and getting back to normal without being a drama queen like a few sure are.

Posted in: Defending champion Kenin out, top-ranked Barty through at Australian Open See in context

this Tournament is a void. If anyone can’t see the hypocrisy of the horribly authoritarian Australian government , believe you me horribly is the only word I can get away with here, when they let this cash cow come in but imprison their own people on a days notice for months, as well as not let nationals come home even now, well, you can imagine my control on language right now.

Get a grip. Australia is dong infinitely better economically and in overall cases than your country. There is no comparison.

Posted in: Mori's sexist remarks show slow progress in narrowing Japan gender gap See in context

Go Mori go don't listen to the unsophisticated. All smart people support freedom of expression.

Moron Mori is a public official, and has been draining public money most of his life.

No, he does NOT have the right to unchecked "freedom of expression" in public, when the verbal diarrhea from his mouth offends those who have been paying him all these years. He is a nasty, sexist and entitled old man who needs to go away permanently.

Posted in: New Zealand Maori leader ejected from parliament for not wearing tie See in context

Weird rule. I would expect the tie rule to be changed soon, NZ is sensible and progressive enough to realise its an anachronism.

What else is expected from NZ?

New Zealand will take a long time to overcome colonial hangover. It was the second last country to remove white supremacy laws in 1993 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Rights_Act_1993) just before S.Africa (1995)

@ Ahbi - get a grip. I'm not a Kiwi, but you wont find many more culturally tolerant and peaceful societies than NZ. No nation on earth is free of some racism, but NZ is certainly more tolerant toward other cultures than the country you just typed that in.

Posted in: Gone in 60 seconds, Japanese style See in context

These are foreign gangs committing these crimes. An important point the article negates to mention.

The cars will likely end up in various parts of Asia and Russia. But if you dont think Japanese gangsters and crooked officials are also involved, especially at the shipping stage, you are very naiive.

BTW, the Toyota Hi-Ace was for years the most stolen vehicle in Japan. It seems that has changed?

Martyr? Get real. The woman was a dedicated, violent anti-American domestic terrorist, as was every other rioter attacking the USA.

Rest in Peace to the Police Officers.

When he was PM, this Mori dope was described by the media as having "the heart of a flea and the brain of a shark."

I think thats being really unfair to fleas and sharks.

@ Happy Day

Is Kyodo a propaganda arm of the CCP, too? 80% in Japan want the Games cancelled or delayed? Highly doubtful. In the U.S., these are called fake polls,

LOL. You dont agree with the results of the poll, therefore it must be "fake" and the pollsters "communist".

Do you realise how insane that sounds?

People are freaked out nowadays.

1 case and a city in lockdown.


Idiots? Might want to look at your home country.

WA has been doing better than pretty much anywhere on earth with Covid, and if there is to be a 5 day lockdown to deal with this case of the UK strain, people will just get on with it. Its what Aussies have done so far, and its working very well.

This is curious.

A couple of posters who a few weeks back were openly supporting a hetero couple using a public disabled toilet for sex (they were caught and cautioned I recall) are now up in arms about gay guys doing the same thing!

In all cases, straight or gay, get a love hotel...theyre cheap and everywhere!
