Posted in: Japan to allow unlicensed electric scooter riding from July See in context

The thing that annoys me the most is bikes undertaking me when I’m indicating a left turn. I guess we will have more of this to look forward to.

The Labour have ruined New Zealand, Jacinda should take responsibility for that.

The other nonsense that should stop are the constant coronavirus announcements in shops, malls and supermarkets. Time to take down all the social distancing notices. Get rid of those BS plastic screens in restaurants too.

Tisk... tisk... Chairman Xi doubling down on his idiotic Zero Covid idea... to prevent a huge loss of face. I feel so sorry for Chinese people.

It is quite brilliant, get the aging population to invest in government bonds and then claw most of it back in inheritance tax.

Have you ever looked after 1 child? Try looking after 30 at once... I wouldn't call them lazy. What an asinine comment.

Posted in: Defense minister, Okinawa governor at odds over U.S. base relocation plan See in context

They wouldn't have their prefecture if those bases weren't there. How would they defend against the CCP? "The prefectural government announces "we strongly urge China to leave our prefecture", "Next month they will meet, to have a meeting to decided what to talk about in a meeting to discuss defending Okinawa"

Posted in: Japan food event held in Beijing See in context

China's zero-covid policy is here to stay and the CCP controlled media constantly blames imported foods. I think Japan should look for other markets.

Posted in: France's health body warns of resurgence of COVID virus in the country See in context

@virusrex I was all for precautions before we had vaccines and the virus was more virulent... I'm wondering why are precautions still necessary? At this stage isn't the virus pretty harmless for most people?

Rice farming is especially water intensive so monitoring and controlling flood gates remotely could be useful.

No imagine if Japan or the US fired into China's EEZ... what do you think the easily offended thin-skinned CCP would do?

I’ve got it at the moment even though I recently got my 4th Pfizer dose… our kids tested positive and my wife and I developed symptoms a couple of days later. It’s everywhere and there is no point self isolating anymore. Not at this stage.

…through which local people and visitors to the Expo 2025 can mingle and foster friendship.

On which planet are they going to find locals that know how to mingle with strangers?

Japan needs to stop printing money and raise mortgage rates. Too much cash in the economy.

Posted in: Japan tops global new COVID cases in week to Sunday: WHO See in context

Mask use is pretty much universal here. Since masks are clearly not helping, I think it’s time to retire the “mask manner” nonsense.

That judgment must be a mistranslation. I don’t know if this is a quirk of the Japanese language… but I often catch people mixing up large numbers by orders of magnitude.

Continue the legacy meaning kishida wants the same treatment that Abe just received ?

That is an idiotic thing to say.

Posted in: Kishida vows to push for Constitution reform, build on Abe's legacy See in context

Sweet Jesus. Can the world get any more screwed up? The world belongs to the young, why are old men destroying it? Japan’s constitution should not be changed. It will be these old politicians sending the young off to war. Just like Putin fertilising Ukrainian soil with the blood of young Russian men.
