Posted in: A mister no more: Mr Potato Head goes gender neutral See in context

I gathered from other news sources that it is only the brand name that is being changed. The names of the products themselves will remain 'mr potato head' and 'mrs potato head'. Watch the outraged idiots crawl out of the woodwork to complain about it though.

Posted in: Early blossoms See in context

I think its more like spring and autumn. Japan basically is just all summer and winter. spring and autumn just don't exist anymore.

Straight from a wooly hat & coat to shorts & t-shirt. A shame the Japanese media is more excited about an early cherry blossom season than the potential end of our planet as we know it.

A dangerous move. If the side effects include fatalities then the medical workforce will be crippled. Much better to test on old people first. Less important.

Arcades have been on the decline for years. This is just the final nail in the coffin. A shame. I used to love getting my ass handed to me at Tekken.

what about all those who lost their careers because of Covid?

Exactly. Why are athletes more important than everyone else who has suffered because of Covid? They are not.

Nice to see Japan has taken something assumes from the pandemic. Save money! (or invest, but whatever). Big business and the government aren't prepared to foot your bills in a crisis.

The demographics for testing have been changed which is why the cases appear to be decreasing. You just have to check any Japanese language social media to see none of the natives are having any of this BS either.

One of my coworkers who was told on multiple occassions to work from home whenever possible, is facing disciplinary action for not having a good enough reason for working at home so much. Ridiculous.

There were 'too many' jobs for the number of candidates last year. Sounds like a fantastic solution. So long as you dont mind not working in Tokyo.

Let's all take a moment to think about those poor poor hedge fund managers. Those poor, altruistic hedge fund managers, who were only trying to make the world a better place with their little gambles. Jeeeezus, give me a break!

Posted in: IOC's Pound wants to examine reasons for Japanese public's concerns See in context

Is this man an idiot? Of course people are concerned about the impact of an international sporting event in the middle of a global pandemic, and of course they are concerned about the ridiculous costs of holding it. For the Japanese public there are 0 benefits to holding the olympics, just more debt. Seems like the UK and Germany are the only ones being sensible, which is ironic.
