why I haven't done a Line in 25+ years and even then it was total crap

That's complete and utter BS. LINE was created in 2011 as an internal company communication network so people could talk to each other in the aftermath of the earthquake.

Yeah, the Democrats love to throw money at stuff, they think that's all you need to do. Wish they would have funded the wall that we need. It's getting built anyway.

I thought Mexico was going to pay for the wall rather than the US government paying for bits of fence.

OssanAmerica, this world doesn't care what you think, to be honest with you.

True. And likewise nobody on this JT board cares what you think to be honest with you.

Many countries have tried universal basic income. They largely stay away from it. The main reason is that while it has been successful in eliminating poverty, it destroys that picture perfect family. When universal income tests have been used in economies around the world. Women tend become more independent and divorce rates increase.

Even if that's true, are we supposed to sign off on not approving an idea on the grounds disapproval will make women be more needy on men and forcing them to stay in meritless relationships because they need to eat?

i don't know how this happened but China is not untouchable,

as many of us bash the J. Government for lack of preparedness for c19 virus.

China has not done enough to stop the spread of the virus from their side.

It's time for entire world to focus what China is doing or not doing and stop avoiding them like they

are untouchable

Finland tried a trial of universal basic income to a small group of people for two years. The lives of those involved improved during the trial. Nothing about divorce increases?

Universal basic income will be a must before 2050.

In the UK on a serious note the Football Association is looking at what might happen if the remaining 11 games were banned because of the virus which might deny Liverpool winning the title. That would be a very major blow if it happened.

It gives me no pleasure pointing out one specific race for mask hoarding, but when they have been case after case trying to illegally takes masks out of Korea, Japan and U.S. and they are Chinese national, when major TV media is covering these events, case after case, since both Korea and Japan is having shortages on masks now. who do you blame, point fingers,

when one person is taking out 24,000 masks at a time, and their 1000s doing this crap, no wonder we are having shortages.

actually, this is kind of sad, those Chinese people who pimped this masks are no better than human trafficking,making profit out of others suffering. It's a sad world we live in.

Russia is the shadowy player here.

What?!!!

Russia (and Iran) is the only one invited by the legitimate government of Syria.

US, "israel", Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are the ones who are deserving of sanctions...

A Universal Basic Income to keep people afloat above the poverty line would go along way to deal with ongoing crisis this year in Japan

Motor Racing

The top teams are pretty even this year, although most people agree that Mercedes looks marginally stronger. There is more jockeying happening in the mid-field.

Roll on Australia! (and an early death to the pesky virus)

Only stupid, thick people could turn a serious outbreak into political slanging. I guess that's US politics for you, Democrat or Republican, it's the people who suffer whilst the politicians and their shills point fingers.

People dont get it from thin air. The two women clearly had contact or some opportunity to get it from someone. Someone is not being honest or was not aware. It is likely 50 percent of people will lie about thier history and their health to prevent from being forced into treatment. I suspect this one fact alone will guarantee that it will spread widely beyond control if it has not aleady. Our modern culture is so used to being able to go where it wants when it wants with no limits that it is inevitiable.

A good vacine will be the only hope but that will take time. Realistically life as we know it is over ....whether people want to accept it or not. We just need to wait for the events to unfold.

just wondering what kind of parents let their kids go down this path.

Indeed. And what kind of person thinks this is all ok, and salivates over these young people and denigrates them for being pawns in this exploitative industry?

Weeeelll at least my Toto toilet has a wash, drier, heater, asks if your male or female, and is always around (since we are talking about a no paper situation.

I guess the only thing for you to worry about is a power outage.

Yes, Q is an omnipotent Star Trek character who has vast powers :D

Hmmm. I would have thought some posters would be very familiar with QAnon. Given that a handful of them post racist and anti-semitic trash with their links to Youtube videos and suchlike.

Wish they would have funded the wall that we need. It's getting built anyway.

Who's paying for it?

And toilet paper. Well, everyone alive needs to do number 2 everyday, right? Of course you can use other things but it is just too, well, inconvenient.

Yeah, but do all the hoarder obachans need to do number 2 ten times a day now since they buying 10 times the usual number? Seems like TP should be limited purchase, like the masks.

It's not funny, but imagine if this is all over in a month... people will be sitting at home with hundreds of rolls of toilet paper, eating ramen, watching NHK...

Now THAT is a real nightmare.
