Posted in: Ukraine-born Miss Japan relinquishes crown after reported affair See in context

I don't understand the logic of these liberals here who think it's ok to sleep with a married man. First, it's a classless act that shows no dignity on both parties. The girl can pick and choose any guy in Japan to be with, but she chooses a self-indulgent doctor to play around with. As the winner of Ms. Japan, her standards in beauty and life are supposed to be higher than the average person since she's representing all the females of Japan as a role model. It's kinda ironic how the winner of Miss Japan doesn't mind being the #2 girl though.

Posted in: 3 foreign-born residents sue over racial profiling by Japanese police See in context

One time I was hanging out with two black dudes in Tokyo and we got stopped three times in one night, and each time they kept saying if we had marijuana lol. Another time I was with my bombshell girlfriend and out of the blue I hear a loud "やめなさい!" coming from two cops gassed out from running just to get to us. They first asked my girlfriend if she was with me and if she was ok when it was clear as daylight that she was since she was holding my arm. It was obvious that the violation was seeing an attractive Japanese model wrapping her arm around a foreigner. They definitely did not like that view. But in the end, they bowed and apologized.

Posted in: Foreign-born Miss Japan sparks debate on what it means to be Japanese See in context

Not surprised the Ms. Japan organization has selected a Ukranian Japanese citizen as the winner. Good for her for winning. Unfortunately, many will point to the obvious political propaganda tactics being used, or the alternative, to arouse debate on what it means to be Japanese. Nothing personal on Karolina though.

Now it's Nikki's turn. Let's face it, no Republican candidate stands a chance against Trump. It's a waste of time and resources to even bother.

Posted in: With outburst, Musk puts X's survival in the balance See in context

Reports full of evidence clearly contradict this, what increased was not political opinions but harassment, discrimination and verbal violence.

I use it everyday and I've never seen any harrassment or discrimination, let alone verbal violence. Oh wait, I have seen people insult each other's countries. But that's part of the game. When have you gone to a sports game and not heard fans insult each other? Freedom of speech ftw.

Posted in: With outburst, Musk puts X's survival in the balance See in context

I was never a big Twitter user but ever since Musk took over and eased public censorship towards conservative views, Twitter became a balanced platform for public opinion. I could actually see productive debates from both left and right perspectives. So even if it shuts down, it's currently the best platform to use.

Posted in: Woman facing arrest for theft jumps to her death from apartment while police wait See in context

Depends on where you live in Yokohama. Central Yokohama a 30K apt. would be impossible to find a decent living space. More like a minimum of 4.5. Minimum.

Common sense will tell you to find a cheaper place if you can't afford to live there. The real question is why did she have to resort to stealing? Was she a klepto? Was she really broke? Did she have a job or was she a dependent of the state? If you can hold any minimum wage job, you can survive in Japan, but you have to sacrifice some luxuries in return for a roof and food in ur stomach. Just look at all the Vietnamese people who share small apartments and still manage to send money back to their relatives. Where there's a will, there's a way. Hence, why I believe she had some mental issues.

Posted in: Woman facing arrest for theft jumps to her death from apartment while police wait See in context

The woman lived in Yokohama.

Thanks for the clarification. My point remains the same. The cost of living in cities like Yokohama is extremely affordable even with a minimum wage job compared to big cities in the state where rent is almost as much or higher than a low paying wage. You can get by in Yokohama with a ¥30k or less for a 1k/k apartment working at a pt time gig and still have plenty for food. This problem is not solely about finances as many comments mentioned. I wouldn't be surprised if this woman was going through some serious mental problems.

The cost of an apartment in Asahi Ward is dirt cheap. You can get a 1k/k apartment for less than 25,000 yen. Minimum wage in Osaka is 1,064. Even if you work for 20 hours a week, you can still make 3x more than your rent.

Posted in: Judging from level of complaints in U.S., air travel getting worse See in context

The airline industry went downhill when they lifted their strict hiring policies due to discrimination. I used to work for UA and once they started hiring people without any actual experience, that's when the complaints started pouring in.

Posted in: Adidas says it may write off remaining unsold Yeezy shoes after breakup with Ye See in context

These are considered the "Jordans" of Adidas. Sneaker heads would pay a fortune for these. I highly doubt Adidas will write off these these Yeezys without any profit. They have been regurgitating this nonsence since day one, yet they keep hyping the release of these shoes every other season. Media outlets don't realize that they're actually helping Adidas build hype.

Posted in: Unification Church in Japan offers to set aside up to ¥10 bil in compensation fund See in context

 ...bow at the start of a press conference in Tokyo on Tuesday. 

Picture is deceiving and makes it seem as if they are remorseful. I wonder how much of the 10 billion is going to the LDP and will the UC still keep their religious status?

Posted in: Hamas frees two Israeli women as U.S. advises delaying ground war to allow talks on captives See in context

The U.S. advised Israeli officials that delaying a ground offensive would give Washington more time to work with regional mediators on the release of more hostages, according to a U.S. official.

Delaying is probably the best solution since Hamas will never be wiped out. There will always be another Islamic extremist group that will claim ownership of Israel by force, so even if Hamas is eradicated, another group will sprout and repeat everything all over again. That's the unfortunate reality.

Posted in: Unification Church slams Japan's dissolution request as threat to religious freedom See in context

If all religious groups/cults stop receiving tax exemptions, then should all non-profit organizations be included? Who gets to pick and choose? How do you determine what's a cult? Mormons? The Church of Satan?

Posted in: Unification Church slams Japan's dissolution request as threat to religious freedom See in context

Unification Church after a ministry investigation concluded the group for decades has systematically manipulated its followers into donating money

To be fair, every church demands a monthly tithe from their members and when it comes to fundraisers, it's a common practice for churches to get creative to get more money from their congregation. This is normal. I've met loyal protestants who have donated their homes and savings at an older age, but what's not normal is having a family member kill an important figure and blame it on their church because their relatives donated their savings. If the court is able to successfully dissolve the group, what's stopping them from dissolving other religious institutions or any organizations that are not aligned with their views?

Which hostages? The thousands of Palestinians that have been in Israeli jails for years? The whole population of Gaza? Or the few taken by Hamas a couple of days ago?

How about the innocent children and toddlers that have been beheaded? Even Biden has confirmed this. Tell me, how many Israelis have decapitated innocent Palestinian babies?
