For pity’s sake: the ship was under maintenance when the fire broke out. Under the circumstances, fires are not exactly unheard of.

These are the kinds of people who deliberately have their kids infected with childhood diseases because they do not believe in vaccination.

There is no curing stupid.

Hopefully she was driving with insurance

Even if she was insured, they won’t pay out for DUI.

Posted in: Bread subscription service excites foodies across Japan See in context

Japanese bread comes in three main types: marshmallow, sawdust, and the kind that initially looks appealing but then deflates like a punctured tyre once bitten. All varieties are so sweet I am convinced the Japanese have invented a new kind of sugar.

Masks are not some magic barrier which waves away viruses, though they may slow transmission.

I think some of you here need to realize that, short of donning HAZMAT suits, you will probably contract the virus at some point.

Posted in: Okinawa governor wants tougher action after 61 U.S. Marines infected with coronavirus See in context

By sending the occupiers home (and maybe those who refuse to wear masks) this is precisely about defending Japan.

U.S. military bases are the price to pay for sheltering under its defence umbrella. You are either calling for the Communist invasion of Japan, or for Japan to enter an arms race and develop its own nukes (incentivising the hawks in government to rip up the constitution in the process.

Which is it?

The question is whether this cluster of servicemen and women were infected on or off the base. If it is the latter, perhaps one or two posters here might consider winding their necks back in.

Amazing this has happened given the heightened hygiene procedures put in place because of COVID. I wonder if some ingredients were already contaminated by the time they arrived for processing... I just hope it wasn't deliberate.

BLM need to take a look at China to understand what real discrimination is. Once they get the CCP boot in the walls, they will understand just how lucky they are to live in the West.

Posted in: Osaka aims to hold referendum on metropolis plan on Nov 1 See in context

I've always found Osaka to be more progressive, in many ways, than Tokyo. They figured out alternating one-way streets to smooth traffic flow, and introduced automated turnstiles on the subway system long before Tokyo did.

Could they learn horticulture and plant some trees while they are at it? Osaka still looks like someone kicked an enormous trash can over.

Abe's plan to turn Japan into a giant shopping mall for Chinese consumers has hit the buffers for the time being. He needs to suck up to Pooh Bear some more.

new white followers: please unfollow me if you are not willing to provide resources (financial or otherwise) for the material needs of black people in our continued fight for liberation. this includes the inevitable seizure of your families estate and any other remaining assets

From Twitter. This is what BLM is really about.

Retribution.

If the Democrats are the answer, why is the violence on Democrat turf? Self-awareness does not seem to be a strong point of the BLM movement.

Ha! just tried it and sure enough, he was the #1 result.

Twitter Algorithms for the win.

That a great many people seem to have delegated their cognitive functions to social media is really quite disturbing.

Are you suggesting that only one race is capable of looting? That would be a racist idea, wouldn't it?

It does indeed appear that Yubaru was insinuating that black people are looters, but having read Yubaru's post's I put that down to muddled thinking rather than a racial superiority complex.

Loot made its way into English through Hindi, but I imagine you are referring to Walter Headley, former Police Chief of Miami during the civil rights campaign, and the remarks he made during the protests back in the 1960s.

Interestingly, Headley was a Democrat.

When the looting starts, the shooting starts!

Is there a race of looters?

Racist means a person who believes in the inherent inferiority of one race of mankind to another, and who acts and speaks in that belief.

What is the evidence that Trump believes and does this?

Posted in: Protesters clash with police in New York; Pentagon deploys 1,600 troops into Washington region See in context

He was arrogant and confrontational, and his words, 'when the looting starts the shooting starts' will live in infamy as will his horrifying pro military stance, a dictatorial take that only exacerbates the volatility, and goes against the soul, empathy, love and goodwill of the United States of America.

FFS. Trump has been remarkably measures in his words (at least by his rhetoric). He could have had the security forces cracking skulls from day one, and yet the protesters have claimed more victims than the police (if we are going to be grisly and keep a body count).

Let's not forget that every Trump fan here voted for Trump despite knowing his double conviction for racism against blacks in housing.

Who voted to have their cities ravaged by looters?

Posted in: Facebook in turmoil over refusal to police Trump's posts See in context

Which ever way you look at it, Trump cuts a divisive figure, nevertheless, not everything is about him. One of the things I find about social media outlets is how they facilitate (and even enforce) conformity. Woe betide anyone who goes against the hive mentality.

How does attacking the White House, burning churches and looting luxury stores and the Nike shop help anything as far as justice for Mr. Floyd?

Liberals want to overthrow the democratically elected government of the United States. The ballot box isn't working, so their footsoldiers are stirring up discontent and letting blacks take the rap for it. Check the amateur footage on YouTube!
