Posted in: Nagasaki survivor urges nuke weapons abolition at U.N. treaty confab See in context

I am not a fan of nukes, but right now they are literally saving lots of lives. Nukes stopped WW2 and we didn’t have any wars between countries who have nukes on both sides. All the countries should have access to nuclear weapons.

It must be tremendously difficult for CCP to control and manage an entire country manually. Especially in crisis situations.

I don’t see the problem. In the worst case scenario it will converge to a US-style system with ghettos here and there where people kill each other as much as they want… while the lucky ones who live outside have a relatively comfortable life if they stay inside their homes or cars for most of the time.

Posted in: Blinken seeks G7 unity on Israel-Hamas war among items on crisis-heavy global agenda See in context

I don’t really see any war here. Hamas is no match for Israel regular army and will never be in these circumstances. Hamas is a relatively large terroristic organization with very limited capabilities. Yes, they can kill a thousand of civilians if they are allowed to do so, but they are no threat to Israel or its independence as a country.

I hope that the demolition and recycling costs are already included in that bill.

Posted in: Nearly half world's countries seeing level of democracy decline: report See in context

I don’t think the world has 173 democratic countries. At most 100. And of course everything is declining because young generations of democratic countries are taking everything for granted and often don’t even care to vote. We will likely are going to experience a big breakdown when many will have a great suffer before getting onto a reasonable path again.

Posted in: Netanyahu says Gaza war has entered new stage and will be 'long and difficult' See in context

“It will be long and difficult,” he said. “We are ready.”

I understand it can be long, because killing 2M people takes some time, but why difficult? Palestinians have sticks and stones and not in a mood to fight the invasion while Israeli army has all types of modern weapons. Meanwhile the few thousands of HAMAS terrorists are probably already not in Gaza anymore.

In these debates about poor Indigenous people enslaved by Europeans etc. I always ask the question: “what these indigenous people would do if they had military superiority at that time?” The answer is they would do absolutely the same thing or even worse. In fact, if Australia were not discovered, it would be filled now with savage tribes fighting between each other with sticks and stones and perhaps even eating each other.

A majority of Palestinians in Gaza do support Hamas, so best to be careful the regime you stand behind as you will have to accept the consequences that entails.

Do you know that majority of Palestinians in Gaza are 18 years old or younger?

Ah common. Just make a couple of nukes and don’t waste taxpayers money on silly toys.

Posted in: What is the most effective way to eradicate the sale and possession of child porn? See in context

Most effective is to eradicate all the people. Much harder and less efficient way is to take better care of the children around the world so there is a lesser chance for them to become a porn material.

Posted in: Casino industry spurs $329 billion in U.S. economic activity, study shows See in context

One more thing is that gambling is also associated with the number of psychological, medical and criminal problems which also generates a significant economic activity in the field of healthcare, insurance and law enforcement area, supporting even more jobs (e.g., doctors, policemen, prison workers, lawyers, insurance clerks etc.) ;)

Posted in: Casino industry spurs $329 billion in U.S. economic activity, study shows See in context

the industry's economic impact in 2022 was up 26% from 2017, before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

By the way, the total inflation in the US between 2017 and 2022 is about 20%. So the net rise is not that dramatic. Also, previous studies show that people with lower incomes are the major contributors to the gambling industry which could be an indicator of the population getting poorer.

It's do much money waste to make conventional weapons. Small nations like Taiwan should play smart, not strong. A few dozens of nukes plus delivery capability will make all the difference.

Only four nations have successfully landed on the moon, the U.S., Russia, China and India.

Not Russia but USSR. Russia just inherited most of the hardware, but incapable to make anything new. In fact, Ukraine played a significant role in USSR’s space program.

The main problem is that the time zone in Japan is wrong. It’s getting dark too early and people can’t enjoy sunsets together after work. Okinawa is more-less fine in that sense hence better fertility.

Posted in: Baby goods in Japan facing steeper price hikes See in context

Disposable diapers are the biggest expense. Here's what we did: we knew our babies' BM timing, in which case we'd spring for disposable; otherwise, we'd use cloth and just rinse them out in the sink. Cut diaper costs by 80%.

Exactly! Let’s stop consuming at all and go back to the stone age, so the prices hikes will not bother us. But I just wonder about the efficiency of our modern society if people have to struggle so much with basic things.

Posted in: As Japan aligns with U.S. chip curbs on China, some in Tokyo feel uneasy See in context

China has their own indigenous chip making technologies. And they are going to hit 24nm next year or so. Then 14nm. 

Not very impressive and the others are not going to wait.

China is currently the only nation that has the chip making technology for the entire process. From ion implanters to steppers to vapor deposition, etc.

Its an advantage only if you play against other isolated countries like Russia, or North Korea or Iran.

The US will be the only one that will need to go on a building spree to refine rare earth metals. And for Ge and Ga, they are trace metals from refining massive amounts of aluminum. The US will have issues refining those metals.

It will cost a lot while China gets theirs from refining aluminum for their own use.

Yes, there are deposits of rare-earths in North Dakota, Wyoming, and Alaska. As long as the U.S. has a democratic president, the Federal Government will most likely not issue the required permits to mine these rare-earths.

Again, assumptions of isolated countries. There are no restrictions to buy anything anywhere for anyone except for China and a few other countries.

So many countries want this guy. It’s hardly an indication of a clean character. The point is that possible corruption of Japanese prosecution system does not mean that anyone it prosecutes is automatically innocent.
