Posted in: Man robbed of ¥3 mil on Nagoya street See in context

It is so weird that people in Japan are so obsessed with cash but still fall for the oldest tricks on the book. In my country this would be such an obvious trap that the victim would be automatically suspected of being part of the crime.

Posted in: Do you think that once the pandemic ends and travel resumes, there will be strong international demand for tourism to Japan? See in context

Very likely, I mean by the time the government finished vaccinating enough people to let travel resume a couple of decades will have passed, people like to visit places that have been isolated for that long.

I was sure I would find the usual copy-pasted antivaxxer misinfo, quality dropping though, the falsehoods are becoming too clear and old.

If it was not for the previous shows of incompetence from those in charge I would think this was made with malice for sure.

Posted in: 2 top LDP officials say Olympics cancelation, no fans still an option See in context

Damn those politicians playing with the hopes of the people, it is not going to happen but hanging the possibility of a cancellation in front of everybody's noses should be a crime.

@Ricky SanchezToday

Isn't these acts a crime? 

Not necessarily, if something goes against the rules of the school it becomes sexual misconduct, even if it is not a crime. Maybe letting a door close when talking to a student, or telling a girl her skirt is too short and her underwear is showing, things like that.

At some point the pretending have to stop, nobody is listening, so no need to pretend objections are taken in account.

He had not been vaccinated, but his only known contact outside the hotel was a co-worker who has received two doses of the vaccine, officials said.

This makes all the difference in the world, I really hope (against all hope) that I can read this same kind of news in Japan.

Posted in: Japanese regulator bans nuclear plant restart over lax safeguards See in context

I am very pronuclear as one of the options necessary to stop fossil fuel dependency, but nuclear power depends very strongly on safety, consequences of lack of safety mechanisms are too strong and long lasting, so I completely agree with a ban based on this reason.

How come energy companies have not learnt their lesson?

Drinking with teachers in Japan was a real eye opener, it is not surprising the ministry has so much trouble recruiting.

So, lets see what is what President Biden will do when these tragic circumstances put in his lap the decision on one of the problems that the US government always try to avoid making a decision on.

Posted in: Australian police commissioner suggests app to prove sexual consent See in context

Responses to the consent app suggestion have been largely negative or skeptical.

That must be the understatement of the month.

I always wonder if these guys don't talk about their genius ideas with someone before going public.

Posted in: Fans to be barred from Tokyo Olympic torch relay start See in context

This makes me feel like everybody wants to cancel the whole thing, but is afraid to get on the bad side of some important boss over 80 years old so they are cancelling things little by little so he will not notice until there is nothing left.

Wow, I skipped the part where Bach got his doctorate in virology so he had a hint of authority to say this.
