Posted in: Toyota begins building smart city near Mt Fuji See in context

I am wandering if some of you have actually read the article in it's short entirety or maybe did not comprehend it for some reason, as it says and I quote "the so-called Woven City to be built at the 70.8-hectare former Toyota factory site in Susono, Shizuoka Prefecture" Which if I am not mistaken is not farm nor forested land...

There was a virus vaccination drill just two weeks ago and I said at the time that it was pointless because they fail anyway. Now they don't have enough syringes! How more inept can this government be?

Why would there not be insurance cover for this?

Because insurance in Japan isn't worth squat, it's a ripoff.

I wouldn't trust SDF to protect Japan!!! Didn't you hear the latest news about a Japanese submarine hitting a great big bulk carrier Ocean Artemis. I mean how is it possible for a submarine with all the radar and sonic equipment to be mishandled as to hit something that big!!! This is incompetence at the highest level!!! 2 billion a year is cheap, stop wasting money on SDF and get any other PROFESSIONAL army to protect Japan, one that can actually do the job right.

Posted in: Woman arrested over deaths of two young sons See in context

I strongly believe that many people in Japan get married for wrong reasons and then they have children and then they realize they made a mistake and then bad things can happen. As for wrong reasons, husband has a good gob or comes from a rich family or owns land or his family owns land . As for men, wife comes from a rich family or owns land or her family owns land. Not many are friends and that is a problem which showed up a lot in this pandemic, where couples were at each other because they were spending a lot of time together, cases of domestic violence shot up. That is a symptom of a much bigger problem in the relationship.

Posted in: Japan does not plan to repatriate nationals from Myanmar See in context

No need to repatriate them, they are in safe hands. I mean they are in the hands of the very humanitarian army aren't they? The same army that has burned down villages and raped and killed the inhabitants. No, there is no need at all to repatriate them, and it will be too expensive...

Posted in: Japan to clarify copyright rules to prevent cosplay violations See in context

We definitely need this law because there are sooooo many of them running around making all this money and not paying the copyright fees. Pathetic waste of public money!

"To further promote 'cosplay' culture, it is important to have an environment in which people can feel safe and enjoy themselves," Inoue said.

Hmmm??? I didn't realize public felt so threatened by the fact that the person in one of those outfits might not have paid the copyright fee. And then how do we identify the ones that have from the ones that didn't??? I know! Hang a big ID card round his neck so that he/she can be identified from 10 meters away or stick a flag pole down his/her back with a flag saying "I paid the fee"

CCP is afraid of people who believe in freedom of expression and democracy and that will not change. So, if you can, immigrate to UK or any other country you can!

Posted in: Japan's probe into alleged Olympic bid bribery flawed: French court See in context

There is no public trust, only complete morons trust what officials say...

in Japan such a transaction is only considered bribery if a public official is a recipient.

That is because without bribery nothing will happen...

Posted in: Coronavirus vaccination simulation to be held on Wednesday See in context

 it's obvious that what they are doing is a check on the logistics of mass vaccination, e.g. lines of people around the block which you don't get when people go for their flu jab. They need to know just how many people one vaccination team can safely throughput taking into account eligibility, distancing, storage and delivery of vaccine to the point of use etc. Better to know in advance and plan accordingly than to have chaos.

Just like they do for the earthquakes and tsunamis, right? As you might have noticed that they always fail miserably, no matter how many practice drill they go through...

I don't see how that is going to make a difference. Same number of people still need to get home, so more people on the last train... Is that the secret to prevent catching Covid?

The only people who will decide are the athletes themselves if they are prepared to or able to come and countries around the world if they are in a right condition to compete or not. Not UN not IOC and not JOC!!!
