I am sure we will hear sooner or later that it was not her first time, that she was dressed in a certain way and deserves that, etc.

She was clearly consenting to this.

We all know how some teenage girls do this for money so they can buy designer shoes and bags. Nothing new.

Something similar happened here recently; a kid was being bullied for over a year, then one day in class he slashed the bully with a box cutter.

Why does this story include the name of the nobody who perpetrated this monstrous act. He should not be mentioned by name in any story about his crime against innocent people. It does nothing but turn him into a person, a right he discarded with his actions.

The story also falsely calls him a white supremacist when he was actually a total nutjob eco terrorist who believed in population reduction to fight climate change, no joke.

And this poor creature isn't exactly doing well in Japan, unless you think confinement to a tiny cage, a minuscule fraction of the space she needs, is doing well... "bud".

They're being slaughtered in Africa by poachers. A zoo is a step up, at least they're alive. Ideally they'll go to preserves in places like Florida.

They should have made the battery packs as slide-out replaceables.

Electric scooters like Gogoro already have this and it works a charm. Just slide the battery out, put it in the charging rack with the others, and pop in a new one and you're off to the races again.

Posted in: Looking for love, white rhino Emma arrives in Japan See in context

By keeping her in a tiny cage, and putting her on display for people's entertainment. In order to protect rhinos, or any other wild animals, they should be protected where they are, in their natural environment. Saitama Zoo isn't protecting this creature, it's exploiting her and abusing her.

Rhinos aren't exactly doing well in Africa bud.

Andrew Lloyd Webber, married three times, all to women. 

If you buy those beards of his then I have a bridge to sell you.

No offense to Webber, I'm sure he's a great guy. He's also tired of the Great Reset.

The "tax the rich" crowd was naive to think that they'd actually tax the rich. The rich won't pay any of those new taxes, only the middle class will. The rich will use every loophole and offshore tax haven to keep their money.

I wonder if NFTs will become junk or not; if everyone eventually starts to migrate over to a VR world that replaces the Internet then they'll need some way of verifying their "property" in the virtual world. Just like when people were selling rare weapons for World of Warcraft. All your possessions in the VR world will be NFTs in a sense.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka pulls out of French Open, citing mental health issues See in context

Putting athletes on some type of pedastal about the rest of us is bad for society as a whole and it appears to be bad for the athlete. Putting athletes on this pedastal also leads to foolish decisions such as inviting people from all over the world to Japan during a Pandemic for the Olympics.

Putting athletes on a pedestal is clearly descended from our warrior culture past where the strongest, fastest, toughest, and most physically creative would have been prized as the absolute best defenders of the tribe/city/state. Hence the original Olympics. That said some of them are paid obscene amounts, but it's what the market has been able to bear.

Posted in: Hayao Miyazaki considers 'Demon Slayer' his rival, Studio Ghibli producer says See in context

Oh, I have a friend who is also an artist, and she says that she tries not to look at other people's art to avoid being influenced.

However, I think he knows more about "Kimetsu" than he is leading on.

This is true, but what ends up happening is you go back and forth; sometimes you do avoid others' work for long stretches at a time, but then you see some and take stock of it, look a bit, but try not to be influenced. It's a constant struggle.

I think Miyazaki has a style, and he often feels he has to have a princess character in every film, but Ghibli could stand to make another movie like Porco Rosso and take Demon Slayer head on.

Posted in: Congress OKs bill to fight hate crimes against Asian Americans See in context

Doesn’t matter who attacks someone. The victim is still the victim and feels the same pain/humiliation/loss.

I think it's interesting to study where there's a slightly outsized percentage of blacks attacking Asians.

My unscientific take: It seems to me that Asians are viewed as either physically weaker or less likely to fight back, rooftop Koreans aside. Most of the attacks seem to be on the elderly but I've yet to see any stats that show that elderly Asians are attacked more than seniors of other races.

Seniors, in any case, should arm themselves.

Posted in: Congress OKs bill to fight hate crimes against Asian Americans See in context

Let's pause for a moment to remind ourselves about how this "Asian hate" got started in the first place.

You'd have to back to places like 1800s California for that with Chinese working low-wage jobs during the Gold Rush and depressed wage levels. They were a convenient scapegoat then.

But even then, the narrative that it was purely White people attacking Asians is proved false; look at the Chinese massacre of 1871 in Los Angeles, where 500 White and Hispanic/Mexican people attacked Chinatown.

Not sure where you're going with this though.

So the US gets all righteous with concerns of human rights abuse in China yet cannot voice any words of condemnation towards Israel with regards to the atrocities being committed on the Palestinian people

Israel isn't rounding them up in concentration camps, their territory was ceded in 1917, if they want to fight a war for it like they have since 1967 then that's their choice. Hamas uses women and children as human shields, of course there are atrocities.
