It's THE Japanese culture.

Notice something wrong ? never bring it, or you'll be target of unofficial bullying.

Are you being bullied ? never bring it, because you've just broken the image of peaceful and beautiful Japan, now you've just painted a target on your face, you're officially a bullying target!

Did you just commit suicide ? LOL, what a weak person, you deserve it, because you don't play well with people, and you didn't know the rules of engagement in this peaceful & beautiful society.

Posted in: Can people vaccinated against COVID-19 still spread the coronavirus? See in context

The answer is of course YES. Having the virus (being infected), doesn't equal to being sick. If you have the virus, when you cough, you'll still spread the virus, you just won't get sick from it because the virus can't use your cells to replicate, because the antibodies - your body made after you vaccinate - attaches themselves to the virus, and the virus' ability to attach to your cells is decreased.

Now imagine the virus with these antibodies attached got into another person's body - who hasn't vaccinate -, the virus will still have decreased effectiveness. This is what "herd" immunity means, virus is still spreading, but they find it hard to attach to cells, thanks to antibodies from people who vaccinated.

So, get vaccinated! When you catch it, your body will protects yourself and others around you as well.

Posted in: Investors chide Toyota chief for questioning combustion car ban See in context

I'm all for CO2 reduction and phasing out gasoline cars, but discussions like this never mention the cost to environmental damage of lithium mining. Electric cars are not the answer, it's just the new fad of corporations-funded lobbying to mass social engineer people to think it's "environmentally friendly", when in reality they just shift the dirty stuffs away from the public's eyes (which historically proven to work really well, e.g. dumping trash in landfill, outsourcing dirty industries to poor countries, American wars on foreign soils, etc.).

Refined carbohydrate is one of the sources of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. If I give up meat, I ain't eating this highly processed refined carbs created solely to make profit. Green cruciferous veggies, nuts and beans, and many other real food are so much better.

Mark my words, after the Olympics, the Indian virus is gonna ravage the country. They'll never declare another emergency, no matter how bad it gets. This government is truly a child, promised glamour, but not getting it, so it sacrifices everything to get what's left.

China despite its shortcoming are investing a lot in futuristic industry, like Japan after ww2. If this continues, China will become even more of a power house. Japan on the other hand is just on "maintenance" mode. As much as I dislike Xi, he's a capable and strong leader, compare that to Japan, very disappointing.

Had to stay at a hotel for work a few weeks ago. They do take a lot of precautions, yet, at service area of highway, young people laughing, talking out loud, while having lunches without masks on.

Sure, pausing of goto travel is preventative, it will hit a lot of hotels, but it will not make people stay home, especially those who care little about the virus, they'll still go out and spread it.

China loves Biden, it will be back to business as Japan won't see anything solved, senkakus, kidnapping, South China Sea. I don't like Trump for all things except for his China stance. Too bad our outdated political system doesn't allow us to elect a person to be in charged on certain issues.
