Posted in: Australia calls for another mass evacuation as monster bushfires return See in context

Amazing how many (about 99%) of Japanese school kids who are completely unaware that these bushfires and the smoke pollution are even goi g on.

Shocking really but they do know that the Tokyo metropolitan building has cute Olympic lights.

Good old NHK news

My brother lives in Brisbane and he and his family have gone back to Ireland for Christmas. When I video called him his two daughters had such bad coughs as a result of the smoky air. Can't imagine what Sydney is like

If you go around betraying your allies it will come back to bite you.

Especially when you are creating an atmosphere where everyone is waiting for your downfall.

A very sad individual.

No leadership at all despite having the deepest wisdom the world has ever seen

Posted in: Scotland heading for high-pressure game against Japan See in context

Sadly most countries are pay per view. My mum and dad said they can only watch the Irish games live, every thing else is 15 minutes highlights. They want to spread the game but deny ordinary people to watch it. Same in New Zealand. Stupid.

Now us Irish have to rely on the Scots doing a Gary McKay a la 1988

As an Irish man that hurt but Japan played fantastically. They were relentless.

At least I won the who can drink more beers contest with my local Japanese.

Every cloud has a silver lining

Posted in: Japan bench captain Leitch for Ireland clash See in context

21 years in Japan and the first sporting fixture between Japan and Ireland. Can't wait. Gutted I couldn't get a ticket. But on the upside as a result of the exposure finally Japanese people will realise I'm not from Iceland.

Here's to a good game, with shared beers and a win for the boys in green.

Low lie the fields of Athenry!!!!

Pot calling the kettle black. Johnsons strategy is to stir it up.

Can't believe a PM who has lost all of his first seven votes is still around.

Ask any normal educated Brit is no deal brexit a good idea and they will all say no.

The only ones for a complete break away are older people harking for a time when brittania ruled the waves and insular xenophobes.

Seriously the EU are being kind to even entertain them

They have no plan. Nothing.

Boris the buffoon and his evil string puller Cummings

I would have loved to see Pences face as he had to meet the openly gay Taoiseach if Ireland.

Maybe that's why he stayed so far away from Dublin. Might have been afraid to dine alone with him just in case he tried it on...

Posted in: Mountain hikers warned to protect themselves amid spate of strandings See in context

I climbed Happone in Hakuba during Obon. It was really busy.

I was surprised by the amount of older people who would struggle walking to the shops up there. Maybe because they could get a gondola most of the way.

Also it was very cloudy at the top with chances of lightning. I turned back just in case after 2 hours but most people have to get to the peak.

Think I was the only one not wearing all the hiking gear from Alpen etc.

Felt like a weirdo in a normal t shirt
