All talk and almost no action

Clearly, something went wrong with the government’s plan

Ya think! The words "government" and "plan" don't seem to go well together and usually end in disaster around here lately.

Posted in: Ishikawa town builds giant squid with COVID relief funds See in context

Someone (some people?) actually thought this was a good idea!

Squid is a local delicacy in Noto

Yeah, and in a thousand other places. Let me guess - it tastes better there, right? Give back the rest of the relief money. Now!

In Japan, it has been shown time and time again by the government that saving face is way more important than saving lives.

That headline says it all: We're only concerned with whether or not the Olympics are held, not about the people.

Posted in: Woman arrested for dumping boiling water on 1-year-old daughter See in context

There are almost no words for this kind of cruelty. This woman is several depraved and needs mental help right away. She also needs some serious jail time. Poor poor kid. I wouldn't do this to my worst enemy and to do it to your own child is just unconscionable. Whomever called the cops saved the child's life.

Posted in: In Tokyo, anarchy comes on two wheels See in context

The cleanliness and orderliness of the city is down to the rules its people are expected to live by. Don't play your music too loud. Pick up after your pet. Put your rubbish out on the right day (and make sure it is the right kind of rubbish).

The rules apply to everybody but nobody in particular as enforcement, if any, is quite arbitrary. You can speak anti-foreigner propaganda all day if you are the ultranationalists blaring out of vans non-stop or do like bousozoku blocking traffic and making ear-splitting noise and the cops won't do a damn thing. You have to dodge dog poo in almost every neighborhood I have been in and Shibuya, for one, is absolutely filthy on weekends. This is just your typical clickbait article but for those from other parts of the world who may take this for gospel, Tokyo is much like just about any big metropolis. Yes, crime is much lower and it is fairly clean but don't get the idea that you have a Garden of Eden on your hands.

I could join then, I'm very plus size. To my wife, my shirt is a tent she could use in a disaster.

Lol! I used to hear the same thing until mine joined the club!

Foot in mouth disease afflicts all the politicians here. They seem to have recurring cases regularly too.

Posted in: Woman arrested for attempted murder after throwing newborn son out the window See in context

I can understand not wanting the child but could never understand throwing a helpless newborn (out of a window). The police will wait until she recovers to charge her? How sweet. Are they going to read her some bedtime stories too, to help in the recovery process? Charge her now. So glad the child will be alright.

“LudditeToday  06:46 am JST

That photo is horrific. No one should be travelling.”

japanese culture has a way of sucking the joy out of almost everything due to its forced protocol, for lack of a better term. Good for them the people with the marbles to try and enjoy what little time we have “left”. I don’t want to die of corona but I sure as hell ain’t gonna sit at home like a good little sheep doing what this joke of a government request when the ball has been dropped so many times it’s just not funny. If there was a clear plan insight maybe, but the left hand doesn’t know what the right is doing. The only thing they care about is the Olympics and appearances. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again “soft fascism”.Vive la Nihon”. Yes we mask up and are careful, do we buy a word the government say, hell no!!!

So many comments that are on the mark today, as usual, and yours encapsulates just how I happen to feel. I hope everyone enjoys Golden Week and does whatever they can to stay as safe as possible.

Posted in: Ohtani wins for Angels in 2-way start like none since Babe Ruth See in context

No records were set in this game and he cannot be compared to Babe Ruth for another few years AT LEAST. I get that the J-bandwagon loves him and he is a fairly good two-way player but let's see him doing it consistently, year in year out and against top playoff competition before we anoint him as the second coming. It's bad enough having to listen to Angels "fans" here who know absolutely nothing about the game and don't realize Mike Trout has been the best player on the planet for the last 7 or 8 years talk about only this guy as if he is the whole team.

Didn't even stop to render aid or call an ambulance. Panicked or not, you should have stopped and done something. Throw the book at this guy. Too many of these types driving on the streets but he'll probably get a suspended sentence. Tragic.

Damn! What a turn of events. No foreign visitors and maybe no foreign athletes but don't try to blame outsiders as you brought it upon yourself, Japan.

Good sci-fi stuff and maybe this research can be used in other applications but speed of light travel will never happen for humans as we are now. After earthly death or after Judgement Day, maybe.

It is a feckless toxic endeavor to bring world of politics into sport.

Maybe, but it has been going on for quite along time.The Nazis combined political propaganda, nationalism and white power during the 1936 Olympics and political ideology was at the forefront during the Cold War.

JR was 100% at fault but they passed the blame to the driver. It's a real shame true justice will never come for him and his loved ones as he will always be looked upon as the one who caused the accident. May all the victims rest in peace.
