He needs to be in a facility with security.

Psychopathy is not curable, there is no rehabilitation.

Lucky girl, to have survived.

Electric small cars are still dangerous when hit,

and/or when they hit something or someone, else.

How about frequently running shuttle services,

it's smaller than a bus, larger than a taxi.

Posted in: Superheroes vs cinema? Debate continues over Scorsese remarks See in context

Films are entertainment, a diversion.

It used to be done with song and dance, a great story and acting,

now it's also done with special effects and super heroes...

I'll choose what works for me.

Doing that to oneself by accident is painful.

Having that done to you by your mother?

Who does that?

Good on the observant teacher, who took action.

Posted in: Japan soul-searching over freedom of expression See in context

So what the Japanese government is doing is basically censorship of their own artists, and has nothing to do with international relations, if you ask me.

If this was supposed to be a show to promote friendship between Austria and Japan,

the artists should have stayed within these guidelines.

To try and make a name for themselves for producing "anti" Japan art,

outside of Japan, is lazy sensationalism,

regardless if anyone agrees with the content, or not.

And does "mutual understanding" mean to only look at the good sides of the the other country? I think not.

These artists use their citizenship to participate and disparage their government,

in a friendship between two nations show.

Their actions remind me a 2 year old demanding attention by pissing on the rug,

at a get-together.

Freedom of expression also extends to the word "no".

You can say it, you can record it, you can put it on a poster.

Does not mean you are guaranteed a sponsor, or an audience.

That's all part and parcel of free speech, it carries consequences.

This show goes on, it wasn't stopped, it's just without the endorsement from the ones who were offended, and, isn't that their right?

The abortion pill should be made legal in Japan,

Tillerson's statement illustrates why he was let go.

It's naive beyond belief.

We'd all like to just get along,

but the duly elected POTUS has been threatened and harassed from day one.

It can never be about coalescing, the goal posts are on different sides of the field.

Posted in: Japanese retailers to be required to charge for plastic bags from summer 2020 See in context

But much of that "recycling" involves simply incinerating plastic, often to produce energy -- a process that generates carbon dioxide and contributes to climate change.

Until you have solid, irrefutable proof, stop fobbing this off on the general public.

10% consumer tax, plus we are taxed by the city, which includes garbage removal,

but yet we are forced to pay for the plastic bags to take it away.

Now, we are forced to pay for plastic bags for purchases.

I uses a cloth bag, but I resent all this money grubbing, when there is no outright

reason for it, other than squeezing money.

Yawn.

So they made a "woke" version, who cares.

It'll be a hit at all the "woke" holiday parties, etc.

The song remains in its original form to be sung that way, or not.

I think the original is more than fine.

Somebody should have instilled in her mind that you don't ever

Wow, it isn't enough the stress of a new teaching job, but to bear these

losers and their pathetic behavior when you are an otherwise a strong male adult?

No one should have to endure this kind of crap while being a student, or a teacher.

A job's security should be merit based, not how long you stay and harass others.

Posted in: Organizers fear security staff shortage for Tokyo Olympics See in context

Gotta love the media. The preparations for the Tokyo 2020 are going well. The media is grasping for straws. First it was the weather, now it so call security staff shortage. What is next? Not enough food at the venues?

I read some time ago, that there were concerns over the use of water,

during the Olympic games season...

The most effective way to regulate the use of water is to ratchet up

the fees to use it.

Like "fuel surcharges" on the cost of flights, ( that never went back down when fuel stabilized )

who wants to guess if the cost of water will be raised, and not returned to previous rates?

Posted in: Nissan not currently considering asking CEO Saikawa to resign See in context

Saikawa apologised on Thursday and vowed to return any improperly paid funds as he admitted to Japanese reporters that he had wrongly received stock-related compensation under "a scheme of the Ghosn era".

Complete theater.

Striking that false humility, "who me?" pose so many Japanese do,

to render themselves blameless.

If anything, this is bonafide proof that his behavior is equal to

the charge that Ghosn has been only accused of.

Japan's flag is a "red sun" in the center of a white backround.

"The criminal legal system is designed so that we must look at the evidence," Sogi told reporters at the Tokyo Prosecutors Office. "Overall balance is important."

and he can't do a thing about it.

Posted in: Two 17-year-old girls arrested for dumping newborn baby’s body near river in June See in context

You are saying child abuse is a choice on the part of the child? Children who sell their bodies are not making an informed choice. Where was this child's parents, teachers, neighbours? Why did they all ignore what she was doing, her pregnancy? If we neglect our children we cannot blame them for their self destructive behaviour.

This girl ( 16 is over the age of consent ) drops her newborn infant and leaves it in a bag,

and this is about her being abused?

I'm thinking she kept her pay-date activity secret, and after the pregnancy

went into denial until a baby dropped.

I don't know how or why her parents could not see she was pregnant, 

she obviously kept a lot of secrets.

There are places where a pregnant person can turn, if they need to, 

but you have to seek them out.

This girl took no action except to call a girlfriend to help cover her ass, 

about 9 months too late.

You can blame everyone else for her behavior,

but at some point, she'll have to own up to it.

Posted in: Can Tokyo's efficient rail system handle Olympic strain? See in context

Japanese people and those who live here bear the train crowding, 

but at Summer Olympics with foreign guests, it will be ugly. 

They have put new bars between 2 seats (what used to be between 4) 

to guarantee the "right" amount of people squeeze in seats.

These bars hurt as they press on hips, legs. 

I give up a seat often, as the other person already sitting is too large for me to fit

without a "cutting" bar...

Before the bar, it was easier to find a seat.

They "welcome" tourists here, but then build new trains less accommodating,

for small Japanese people only.

Foreigners having to stand in jam-packed trains might boost taxi service.

In any event, I will leave during the Olympics!
