Posted in: Depending where you live, to what extent have you been complying with the Japanese government's request to observe anti-coronavirus measures during the current state of emergency and quasi-state of emergency? See in context

I completely ignore any "urges" from the government and keep going wherever I want. Tho I do practice social distancing, wear a mask when in public and constantly wash my hands and/or use disinfectant. I stay in contact via messenger with friends but haven't meet them face to face often. Maybe twice or three times since this stuff started and been to a bar once. I freaking miss going out with friends so freaking much.

Posted in: What, if anything, do you believe governments around the world aren't telling the public about the coronavirus? See in context

I believe the numbers are manipulated by the government. One example would be infections all of a sudden going up to around 3,000 the day before SoE.

I don't believe the consistency theories that say governments created the pandemic as an excuse to "control" people. That makes no sense for two reasons. One, they already control you (you've gotta pay taxes and stuff and murica even tracks how much money their citizens make abroad). Two, what government would want citizens to stay home all day? Look at the Olympics. All the that money they invested but will now lose.

The conspiracy theory about microchips instead in the vaccine to track you down... Ha! What an imagination. They are already tracking your every movement. Your "free" Facebook and Instagram accounts, Google location services, they know EVERYWHERE you go, shop, stay, everything.

why not drink and drive?

Coz you'll most likely create a nasty traffic accident resulting in dead and you know. It's the law and all that.

why wear clothes?

Coz without 'em, my weiner would disappear in minus the temperatures during winter.

why not smoke in the restaurant?

Second hand smoke indoors actually creates health problems, not to mention that nasty smell. Outdoors on the other side, none. Same with masks.

Should have just ignored him and kept walking.

I skip tunnels at all cost when I'm riding. I rather go to the closest station and hop into a train to skip them. They scare the poop out of me as I've already had a close call in one of them.

Posted in: Efforts underway to end 'period poverty' in Japan, despite hurdles See in context

If spending 1,000 yen on sanitary products is too much for someone, I doubt lowering the sales tax on that specific item from 10 to 8% would give them too much of a saving. If lowering the sales tax is a fix to period poverty, then why not having those items, as well as diapers and other basic needs products be free of sales tax? That would make a huge difference.

Posted in: Muji announces switch from PET bottles to aluminum cans See in context

The water bottles market is something I don't understand. Why is the biggest bottle a 2L? That means I have to buy 6 -7 every week. Wish there was a 5 or 6 gallons available, that I could trade for another one after I finish that water every week.

Why even bother covering this on RikiWeb, since the movie doesn't have a JP release date?

What does Japan's virus state of emergency mean this time?

It means more lip-service by the government to look like they're doing something. In other words, more of the same.

Posted in: After bars and restaurants close at 8 p.m. in areas where there is a coronavirus state of emergency, many people are buying alcohol at convenience stores and from vending machines and then hang out in parks or public spaces near train stations to continue drinking, thus leading to more possible virus infections. Do you think the police should disperse such groups? See in context

It's not illegal to be outside and there's no curfew. So no, I don't think police should disperse people. And like ADK99 said above, those people were already together at the same table while indoors. No point telling them to go home.

Posted in: Do you think that once the pandemic ends and travel resumes, there will be strong international demand for tourism to Japan? See in context

It's gonna be a big boom. So much that tour agencies and services will have a lot more than what they could handle.

No and I will watch the games on TV (YouTube).

I try (tho almost impossible) not to buy stuff made in China, and nothing on Amazon shipped straight from China.

Is it normal for taxis to do such long drives? They should probably ask for a valid credit card in advanced for such long drives.

Maybe they'll have restaurants and bars display a double rainbow sign, instead of a single rainbow one, as a symbol of "strengthened" measures?

Quasi State of Emergency: Close bars at 8pm

Stronger Measures: Close bars at 8pm

Medical Emergency: Close bars at 8pm

We have some real creative geniuses running this country....

Posted in: Biden tightens some gun controls; says much more needed See in context

There should be no gun restrictions at all. If people can't handle them then that's their problem but everyone should have the right to defend themselves

Justify the need of owning a bazooka and assault rifles to defend yourself in the streets of murica.

Posted in: On average, how much time each day do you spend on social networking sites? See in context

I think I've spend too much time trolling on JT this morning. And during the last two years, too much time on Facebook. I wish I could lessen my screentime but man, it's hard. Specially now I've lost contact with say many friends during the pandemic.

The right wants to ensure gun rights and democracy, 

By "democracy" you must have meant "anarchy." Or... wait. Those storming the capitol must have been leftist antifa, disguised as rightists saint warriors republicans.

Bass, still hitting on that drum "it's always the left, trying to destroy the country vs the right being saints?" When in reality, they're both just the same, muricans.
