Dying at home isn't what I understand "recuperate" to mean.

Posted in: Trump blasts 'leftist maniacs' in women's Olympic soccer team See in context

So in his tiny mind, winners are all rabid right-wing nationalists? He should be in a padded cell for his own safety, not to mention the rest of the world being safe from hearing his demented ramblings.

Posted in: I want the government to seriously consider legal measures, including lockdown-like restrictions on movements. See in context

Good luck with that. Obon's coming, people are tired of half-hearted restrictions and a shambolic vaccine roll-out. Expect some high numbers over the next few weeks :o(

Posted in: Japan's jobless rate falls to 2.9% in June See in context

I wonder how many of these new hires could actually survive on the pay from these seasonal / restaurant / retail jobs?

Posted in: U.S. media say anti-COVID steps at Tokyo Olympics go against press freedoms See in context

What on earth makes them think that Japan cares in the least about press freedom?

Posted in: Tokyo Governor Koike hospitalized due to fatigue See in context

She must be, what, 75 years old? Maybe time to relax and enjoy her golden years rather than being remembered for the shambles of Tokyo 2020?

Posted in: Crowdfunding opens on Japanese version of a gadget that makes any canned beer easier to drink See in context

Another solution to a problem that doesn't really exist.

If you're not capable of drinking from cans, maybe you shouldn't be out by yourself, and you certainly shouldn't be left around sharp objects.

Posted in: COVID vaccines to be available to all under 65 in Japan at same time See in context

From June? Really? Absolutely nobody believes this.

Over 65s here who called the same day they received their cards were told "End of August...." and there are, as we all know, a lot of over 65s here....

Posted in: Most Japanese medical workers still not fully vaccinated See in context

My in-laws received postcards and tried to make appointments the same day. They were told August. So clearly (as if anyone thought otherwise) the over 65s will not all be vaccinated by the end of July.

"...sluggish vaccination rollout"

Sluggish seems to sound too fast. How about glacial?

@Yukijin I have to admit, it did make me think of Blinky, the 3-eyed fish from The Simpsons!!

Posted in: Japan has entered 4th wave of COVID-19 infections, says gov't panel chief See in context

So the experts say there's a 4th wave, and Suga says "I don't see a big wave (of infections) nationwide." Who to believe, who to believe.....

This is a lot more than "beating up" another kid. This a shocking assault.
