In my next life, can I be reborn as a monkey? They seem to have more fun.

So translation/interpretation will no longer be a business? Lots of people out of work, but that's technology.

Posted in: S Korea's Moon says Tokyo Olympics may be chance to revitalize diplomacy See in context

Very suspicious. The Olympics will introduce dozens of new COVID variants into Japan, destroying the Japanese economy. What is Moon really thinking?

If your biggest life problem is noisy children, you must have a great life.

Is this "Schitt's Creek" supposed to sound like a dirty cuss word?

I never realized that along with skin, voices could be colored. Do we Japanese have a voice color?

Posted in: TV series 'Frasier' latest '90s hit to get a revival See in context

Is this because of nostalgia, or because Hollywood has lost its creative imagination and can't think of any new shows?

Posted in: Biden's 1st month was about erasing the mark of 'former guy' See in context

Actually, in the above comment, maybe I should have said Trump spent his whole term erasing Obama.

Posted in: Biden's 1st month was about erasing the mark of 'former guy' See in context

Well, Trump spent his first month erasing Obama, so I guess this is a new trend in American politics.

Yeah, I don't get it. They appear to be floating midair, not in water. I've never been there, so I don't know.

Posted in: 21-year-old woman arrested for sending hundreds of nude selfies to woman in her 70s See in context

If she is a lesbian, she is called 老け専 (fuke-sen) in the gay world. It means you are attracted to an old person, and you like a grandpa or grandma figure. There are lots of types like that.

Posted in: Japan growth slows in Q4 as economy shrinks 4.8% over year See in context

For some people 4.8% may not sound like a lot. But 4.8% of something huge is also huge!

Posted in: Gov't to review next week early lifting of state of emergency See in context

It is strange that nobody believes the Japanese government statistics, but they believe without doubt the statistics of Taiwan, Australia, and every other country.

Posted in: Mori to resign over sexist comments; Kawabuchi, 84, tipped to replace him See in context

This is a good thing. If he stays, that will end up completely negate whatever good he did in the past. At least he didn't try the Donald Trump strategy. When Trump said something really stupid like that, he would just say "I was just joking!"

If you buy an artwork because you like it, does it matter that it is "fake"?

Posted in: Olympic organizers apologize to volunteers over Mori's remarks See in context

We have a pandemic and we have a president of the organizing committee with a medieval attitude towards women. What else could go wrong?

If these guys are smart enough to pull this off, why can't they get a regular job in security or engineering?

The good side of this is that it may bring about the cancellation of what is likely to be a health disaster.

Anyone stupid enough to say something like that is also too stupid to realize that he should resign.

Posted in: Mori apologizes for sexist remarks, but refuses to resign See in context

Any man stupid enough to utter such remarks is also stupid enough not to realize that he should resign. What an embarrassment to Japan!

And now no women will want to be involved with anything Mori is connected with.

Posted in: Foreign trainees hit hard by coronavirus See in context

If you read more widely, you can find that there are many more situations where the trainees are actually trained, live in good conditions, are paid as promised, and return to their home countries after 3 or 4 years to a well paying job. Only the bad situations, and they do exist, make the news.

The first thing I wondered when I saw the headline was whether or not he really had 100,000,000 yen. And he didn't.

So you get coronavirus at home during the shut-down or outside? Might as well go out and enjoy life.

Posted in: Biden tells Suga U.S. committed to defending Japan See in context

Historically, the US troops are not here to defend Japan. They were placed here at the end of WWII to ensure the rest of Asia that Japan would never repeat what it did during colonization of Asia and WWII. And the bases here allows the forward deployment of US troops in Asia. That is all.
