U.S. government promises that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange would not face harsh prison conditions if he is extradited to face American justice

Rayn Samsel will happily confirm this.

Posted in: Toyota testing hydrogen combustion engines in race cars See in context

Actually, "perpetuum mobile" was a domain of little tinfoil hats.

"Zero emission" goals, however, are seriously considered by the largest companies,

by politicians and "the most prestigious scientific societies". Why? Perhaps,

because "zero emission" has a lot to do with money: for example, bankers in America

are planning to spend 150 T$ in 30 years to achieve "zero emissions". (This really means they plan for 5T$ yearly inflation). All businesses/"learned society" entities would be foolish to disregard such an opportunity.

Posted in: Toyota testing hydrogen combustion engines in race cars See in context

"Zero emissions" buzzword resembles earlier obsession with "perpetuum mobile".

Although the hydrogen engine does not emit CO2 (except traces from engine oil oxidation), preparation of hydrogen, by any method, requires a lot of energy. If H2 is prepared by electrolysis, the emissions occur during electricity generation. We could think of substituting conventional electric plants with solar panels. However, production of solar panels requires huge amounts of energy, and causes huge CO2 emission, to compensate which you need many years of solar panel operation. It is unrealistic to expect that solar panels can substitute conventional energy sources, because world energy needs are already gigantic without including energy needs necessary for panel production.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 17 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 153 See in context

I make a conspiracy theory claim that can be verified soon: if we assume that the period of maximum daily cases is about four months also in the case of Japan, the next maximum will come in January 2022 regardless of vaccination status of society.

"I'd been looking forward to dressing up after two years," said 41-year-old Sachiko Tsukuda, who visited the theme park in costume with a friend. "I want to enjoy taking photos."

She will start thinking of having babies at 60.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 17 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 153 See in context

the virus has hit a wall of vaccinations (185M doses in Japan to date)

I am not so sure about that, because we know pretty well that vaccinated transmit the virus the same way as unvaccinated.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 17 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 153 See in context

The worldwide plot of daily new cases of covid show maxima roughly every four months. (please see worldometer for example). This is quite different from seasonal peaks of influenza. Nobody really knows why the period of coronavirus waves is four months. But, we can expect another (worldwide) maximum sometime in the end of December 2021/beginning of January 2022.

Science has been abused by politicians and bureacrats such as Fauci and others.

They say "follow science", but in fact their position is anti-scientific. An example of an antiscientific troll here is virusrex.

Various security companies around the world are looking for (experienced) people to work as security professionals in Afghanistan. This makes me think that US just outsourced Afghanistan.

I am surprised that such drinks are popular. Perhaps, those who order them are simply craving for sugar? I had such problems in the past. To overcome sugar craving syndrome, I decided to drink only four fluids: pure water, good wine, tea and occasionally coffee (unsweetened, of course).

akadake, you should try British regional cheeses, we produce more varieties than even France and they are brilliant!

I am not very familiar with British cheeses except STILTON (wonderful!) and Shropshire (fantastic!).

Some Japanese toilets are overly automated. When you enter the bathroom, the plastic lid opens like aligator jaws, which scarred me to death on first time. Then, when you start to pee - it closes in the mid of my act...

I also love cheese from Eastern Europe: Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia. Unique and wonderful. And Middle East: Turkey, Cyprus, Armenia, Georgia! Before thinking of fake vegan cheese - experience what mankind achieved with real product.

Posted in: Sustainable vegan cheese brand introduces ‘faux-mage’ lineup See in context

Vegan cheese is fake cheese. The interest will fade in a year or so.

The best cheese comes from Greece and Italy (goat/sheep milk) 3000+ years of tradition. Spanish cheese is great too. Modern French cheese is generally too fatty.

Posted in: Some governments are thinking of imposing a carbon tax to curb greenhouse gas emissions. What do you think? See in context

"carbon tax to curb greenhouse gas emissions" - it's not about climate "change" or "warming". It's more about resource scarcity. Of course, I am aware that a person who suggested that CO2 increases global temperatures got 1/4 of No-bel prize this year. But, climate warming theories are as doubtful as they were before.

Globalists, and generally enemies of nation-states, do whatever they can to suppress patriotism. Today, there a very homogeneous nation-states in the world. Fortunately, Japan is one of them.

Making a contact with toilet surface, especially a public one is unhygienical. You could contract STD not mentioning covid. (As we all learned covid abounds in excrements). Moreover, think what becomes a splash supressor when you sit - your A$$.

Posted in: Do you agree with the Japanese government's decision to lift the state of emergency on Oct 1? See in context

It is good that Japan does not have an emergency state at present. In fact, Japan should go the way Sweden or Belarus went - try to live and work normally despite covid. Covid poses a minimal risk to young people, and they can easily achieve "herd immunity". Older people need to take precautions, maybe vaccine if they are really aware of vaccine risks. On the other hand, everybody should be given ivm/vit D/doxycycline kits like in Uttar Pradesh (India), because these medicines side effects are low, and they work against covid.

Posted in: Japan's state of emergency lifted as COVID infections decline See in context

   It will be interesting to see how the number of infections across Japan develops in the coming weeks.

It will increase at some point, why not. But there is a good news - Merck announced a "phenomenal" medicine against covid. It works 50% better than placebo when taken during the first 5 days of infection. I guess they will call it Pferdmecktin or horsepastivir.

But coming back to Takaichi, I think she is unskilled and divisive. Moreover, the debate showed she is uneducated (nuclear fusion reactors:) and authoritarian (hard lockdowns). Nationalists deserve a brighter candidate.

I do have a list of dangerous male politicians. But, there are less women in politics than men, and on average women politicians perform more badly as my list shows.
