My car hasn't gone up in value, neither has my TV. But my UK house has. Even though the carpets are worn, garden fence is rotting, guttering is old, bathroom is outdated....

Posted in: Decision could be made over foreign spectators for Tokyo Olympics by May, says Bach See in context

The huge number of "Olympic fans" is a myth put out by every bidding city. It simply isn't true. Its not like soccer or Rugby where fans travel the world to support their team. 50km walk fans and small bore pistol shooting fans do not exist. London had a net drop in visitors for the games!

I've never understood why people feel the need to waste millions on a "fake" ceremony and party for people they hardly know. Then live in a tiny rented apartment saving to buy a place of their own. Well, actually I do understand. Its all about the parents saving face and looking how they thing others expect them too..

There will not be 800,000 "fans" visiting for the Olympics. There will not be 80,000 either.

Of course Fawlty Towers could never be made today. Yet one of the few shows that are still funny.

Posted in: If you die from the COVID-19 vaccine in Japan, the government will give your family over ¥44 mil See in context

Burning bush.. As I think you well know, those deaths in Norway were NOT the result of the vaccine. They were the number of people ( old and in extremely poor health) who died within 28 days of getting the vaccine. Not one of them died as a result of getting the vaccine.

There is a certain style of Japanese group photography that manages to perfectly make the setting and subjects look uncomfortable and staged. It seems to be a requirement of all official photographs.

Its a very safe bet by the government as of the millions to get the vaccine around the world NOT ONE SINGLE death has resulted.

englisc aspyrgend...... you could go on but that wouldn't make it true. The UN routinely publishes nonsense.... WMDs in Iraq?

Just the usual anti China propaganda we are fed on a daily basic. There are far worse abuses in the world but they are committed by "OUR" allies so.... not mentioned.

Posted in: 12 Japan firms to end business deals involving Uyghur forced labor See in context

Last time I was in China, Uyghur separatists were commititng mass stabbings in and around train stations. This has been stopped. China has invested billions in infrastructure in Uyghur areas to improve the lives of the people. The militants propaganda stories are easy for the usual anti China crew to take on board with no proof or evidence.

Posted in: Man gets out of taxi on Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge; then jumps to his death See in context

Suicides in Japan seem to be extremely selfish. Either disrupting commuters by jumping in front of trains, endangering passersby by jumping off buildings or in this case wasting a taxi drivers time and earning potential. The government needs to have an education program to encourage socially acceptable suicide..

Or better still, choose life. Suicide is never the solution to any problem.

Posted in: What problems do you foresee with the roll-out of the coronavirus vaccine in Japan? See in context

The biggest "problem" is the fact that only certified doctors and nurses are permitted to administer the jabs. They will have to be diverted from their usual work to do this, or work overtime. This is the bottleneck in getting the vaccine out.

Posted in: Mother whose daughters died after being left in overheated car gets 6 years in prison See in context

She waited 6 hours because she was more concerned about getting a drink driving conviction than the welfare of her children. That alone shows just how self centered a person she is.

Six years means out in 3-4 if she is a model prisoner... Justice?
