I recently watched 'The Case Against Boeing' on Netflix, disturbing stuff.

Many younger Japanese have balked at marrying or having families, discouraged by bleak job prospects, corporate cultures incompatible with having both parents — but especially women — work, and the lack of public tolerance for small children.

Yet no mention of the toxic culture of overworking / unnecessarily long hours. They'll never get it will they?

The first of many indictments to come. It's beautiful. Arguably the best part is now the precedent has been set.

Why does Japan not keep the carcinogenic water in storage as now?

Are you dense or something? They are almost at capacity. What do you propose - that they keep building tanks endlessly for the next 40 years until the plant is decommissioned?

Posted in: End of Japan COVID curbs triggers surge in visitors to nearly 1 million in November See in context

As I move primarly by car/motorcycle I only wear this thing when I'm indoors with lots of people (malls etc) and that's already suffocating for me. Can't go a full week without unlocking the car again to grab the silly mask that serves me for absolutely no purpose but not to stand out as the evil gaijin

Stop being so dramatic.

You're a foreigner, you are going to stand out regardless.

i wear it when i go into a business, supermarket , crowded area.

when im walking down the rd with very few people around, in my car, in my home I dont.

Exactly! A common sense approach.

now were going on the go to travel campaign, Id like to thank the antivaxxers for help funding it with their tax yen, cant get a refunded if youre not vaxxed. LOL

I'm guessing from the vague title that JT is trying to not sensationalize suicide but then why even write about it?

Agree. The article itself was quite vague about how it happened. Its only revealed to be a suicide in the last sentence.

Posted in: Nearly 60% in Japan unaware of relaxed COVID-19 mask guidelines: survey See in context

Don’t wear masks indoor or outdoor. Only in hospitals.

one mask takes 100-350 years to break down in the sea. Over a billion end up in the sea every week. They contain nano-plastics which are harmful to humans and sea life.

I don't know how accurate this is. But I use washable masks - have been for years. More cost effective, and more comfortable.

Posted in: Trump faces blame from GOP as he moves forward with White House bid See in context

Trump is of course toxic and a criminal. But the GOP embraced extremism, so this is a mess of their own making. Let the infighting begin!

Young voters are overwhelmingly siding with the Dems. This will only increase in the coming years as the boomers decrease in numbers. It seems things like bodily autonomy and democracy actually do matter to folks...shocking!

It really doesn't matter what anyone wants. The US military is never going to leave Japan; it's a key strategic location for obvious reasons. End of discussion

Now all the people that were screaming fear-induced lockdown are wondering why the economy is so screwed, and crying for yet more handouts.

I don't know man... the people demanding lockdowns likely don't need the handouts.

It would be unsettling if living in one of the high rises in Tokyo and feeling any earthquakes. I prefer to live closer to the ground.

I'm in the bay area, in a high rise. Unsettling is a good way to describe last night.

Posted in: Biden solidifies U.S. election win; Trump says 'time will tell' if he stays in power See in context

I honestly cannot fathom how people can support Trump at this point with how incompetent he has proven to be. Not to mention the lack of class / decency, his vindictive nature, the blatant lies and nepotism. He's also an idiot (just listen to him speak). Someone who has had a silver spoon in his mouth since birth, and somehow he is supposedly working for the common man?

I get voting on issues you care about (taxes, gun control, abortion etc) but at some point you have to draw a line on principle. Is this really how Republicans think a leader should carry himself? I'm a registered republican, and even I was not stupid enough to vote for a reality TV star to run the country. A man with no history of public service and a draft dodger. And after the past 4 years of chaos, I'm firmly in the #nevertrump crowd. He is an absolute disgrace to what the office of the president should stand for. And to those in congress who stood by while he burned everything down, you should be ashamed of yourselves. The GOP is now infected with Trumpism - good luck with that!

She needs two masks. One for each face. Same for that useless person called PM. Can't remember his name because I haven't seen him for such a long time. Hiding in the bunker too?

LOL, I'm dying of laughter here. Best comment I've read in a long time.

He needs to man up and face the charges in Japan, France and Holland. His wife needs to be prosecuted over the $7m and his son needs to be extradited from the USA and prosecuted over the $10m.

people who helped him need to be extradited and prosecuted.

crime is crime.

I even think the abe stimuls package of given everyone in Japan free money is supcisious as they want to know your bank account info for some odd reason in exchange for 10 man yen....

If you believe they don't already have access to this information...maybe you should lay off the oxycodin.
