Seems like a mental health problem to me. He himself has actually gone feral.

Anyone here in the comments who is supporting this dude should first think about what it might be like if you were his neighbor.

He needs some help for sure but not more funds to continue the craziness.

He is not that dissimilar to those peeps who compulsively store stuff in their house.

Buy the dip.

If you are long term in Japan, you can keep your funds in banks that pay close to nothing or invest in a stock that pays a dividend of 5% or so.

Enforcement is always an issue. Like Google and their threat to Australian media.

Nobody has heard this kid's defence (the article explicitly states that no reason was given for the refusal) but unilaterally condemn him or her. No wonder Trump's call for action on the election gained such traction.

Three essays in a row....now that can't be a coincidence.

Do not believe everything you read.

Should we really thank China as one writer suggests?

Posted in: Signal, Telegram see demand spike as new WhatsApp terms stir debate See in context

All these people posted so much personal info over the past 15 years and Facebook just took that data and ran with it. Made billions. Literally big billions.

What were people thinking? That this great "free" site lets me "connect" with everyone. How can that be bad?

If you want to continue to be a sucker, continue to use their products. They work well but there is a cost.

Don't ask the price. Even I don't know what it is exactly but you get what you pay for.

The Japanese market is poised for huge gains next year as the Trump debacle reverberates through Asia next year.

Trump just showed all of us how fragile their society really is. Asia will be the engine of world growth when this pandemic ends for many years to come.

Amazing story and Musk is certainly a visionary.

However, Tesla is now valued at absurd levels. It has a market cap of 780 billion while Toyota's cap is around 210 billion.

Posted in: Suga under fire for year-end dinners as coronavirus cases mount See in context

@spitfire what should he be offering? and so now, Abe has charisma?? That's a bit odd.

If they took the necessary precautions, which I am sure that they did given the microscope that they work under, I personally do not see the problem.

They have to run the country and that involves meeting peeps.

I don't see Suga in snack bars...just not that kind of dude.

I think I am kind of left but reading the above comments, makes me verge right.

Let the down votes begin.

They look like a happy family but looks can deceive.

Add media pressure. Mix with speculation from private punters like myself and you have yourself a very unhealthy situation ready to be served, dissected and spewed back into the mainstream with concerns about their mental health.

Ya reckon?

I worked in a Sydney high school in the late 80's where 1/3 of the student body were Asians and the majority were Vietnamese. Great students and they were part of my inspiration to live in Asia.

The chance of catching COVID is small if you take sensible precautions.

The chances of dying are close to zero.

They are making the right decision here. I know that JT folks will oppose this opinion but that is OK.

There appears to be vaccine here soon but those Aussies love a good block . Have you seen the youtube episodes on border control?

They way overplay their commitment to getting every sketchy player. Quite a few get by...you wouldn't think so but they do. Does it matter? Of course not. Public servants living the life.

Posted in: Nikkei ends at highest level in 29 years on solid earnings See in context

Until quite recently Japan was the only place with zero interest rates. Now, it has become a global phenomenon. Incredible really.

Quality, internationally focused Japanese stocks can yield 2 to 5%. For readers with limited financial knowledge, yield refers to the dividend paid to the holder (typically twice a year). It is somewhat like the interest banks pay to depositors.

Currently my bank pays interest on 1 million yen of about 1000 yen. How good is that?

The correct answer is "not very good".

What are the chances that there are more than a few Nissan execs feeling a lot of sorry for Kelly's situation?

Even J-execs have a conscience sometimes.....if they aren't blinded by company loyalty.

Three lawyers filed a motion, eh? I presume the lawyers are Lebanese but who here doesn't think that someone from Nissan had a hand in this?

Kelly must walk....what exactly was his "crime" again?

A movie is in the works....this will just be typed in an old-style font complete with typewriter sounds just before the final credits.

Posted in: Trump claims victory despite uncounted votes; Biden urges caution See in context

People who were concerned about Covid, mailed in votes, those not concerned about it chose to vote in person on the day.

That is pretty much the delineation of the two parties right there. Dems will dominate the mail votes, Trump knows that.

Not a done deal by any means at this stage.
