The Government has thrown everyone under the bus by not taking the control of the virus seriously.

Will probably end up the same as the other 101 gadgets (usually from the 100 yen shop) that end up cluttering the bottom kitchen drawer.

Posted in: Police officer arrested for sexually molesting high school girl See in context

A 20 year old male is way too immature ,both socially and cognitively , to become a Police officer. The male brain does not fully mature and stabilize until about 25.

Hardly a week goes by without a report of a Police Officer doing something gross.

Being vaccinated and tested, they are a lower risk than 80% of the Japanese public, but have to put up with harsh restrictions. Rather ironic considering that Japan still has thousands of new infections Every Day.

The entire world is looking at ways to stop relying on China for manufactured goods. Give it some time and China will have to stop its Wolf Warrior attitude or become ostracised from world trade. Other emerging economies will pick up the rewards.

Her life, her decision. I just find it strange/funny that others that have nothing to do with her can get so worked up and nasty about it. Tall Poppy Syndrome i would guess.

The threat of catching the virus is so low in Australia atm, that people are just a bit blase about the whole thing. All good. Eventually will catch up.

I sometimes think that, as a species, we are getting dumber. The rise of orgs like qanon just reinforces the theory.

The Govt will just blunder on until after the Olympics, it is only then that the REAL figures will be made known.

Its called selling the country a lie, all for the sake of not loosing face.

Yeah, lets all change the rules to suit....China. Sounds reasonable. The world is rapidly tiring of the BS that Chine sprouts.

Posted in: 4 die in fire suppression system accident in Tokyo parking garage See in context

Its a parking garage. It should have been a sprinkler system. Having a CO2 injection system anywhere that people could possibly be is sheer criminal. Is this even legal in Japan. I know that in most western countries it would never be allowed.

Always wanted to catch a two headed fish.

On the other hand, its a bit rich of China complaining after what they just dumped on the world.

Anyone else have a sneaking suspicion that once the Olympics are over the true extent of infections will be revealed?

Just run away, sign the papers, have a bunch of kids, live in a tiny house by the sea, go surfing, be happy. Everyone deserves to be happy and in love.

There is more societal and health damage due to alcohol, but hey, we can tax that. So lets not even look at alternate ways of dealing with this. Plenty of evidence from other countries that point to responsible ways of allowing use.

Posted in: U.S. weighs Beijing Olympics boycott with partners, allies See in context

Practically every sport has a World Championship already. Is the Olympics needed or relevant any more. It seems to have evolved into nothing more than a money making venture , and corrupt as well.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 355 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 2,472 See in context

If they tested anywhere near what other countries are doing then you could add another zero to that figure.

But...the Olympics.

If you let it run rampant like in Brasil, it mutates and now it is killing lots of their young people.

An inflexible learning system, too much early expectations and pressure, and ridicule and ostracised for daring to be different. You either become one of the sheep or you're out. One of the worst education systems in the developed world.

All of this due to the behaviour of the politicians and their staff. Setting a great example.

Posted in: Tokyo experiences drop in population for 7th consecutive month See in context

Its happening worldwide. People are opting for a "Tree Change". Crowded cities are less attractive and lifestyle choices are becoming more important. The ability to work from home is also a factor.

You could probably envisage that in years to come that the only solution will be a huge cover like the one at Chernobyl. As it stands it looks like they have no answers.

I'm not sure if any travel insurance companies will cover you for the virus. Six months ago it was a no.

Virus spike?
