Posted in: Why Japan's 'rising sun' flag provokes Olympic ire See in context

It's not a good symbol considering what happened in China and other parts of Asia in 1930s and 1940s. A very dark historical past.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympics set for unusual opening ceremony See in context

I call the stadium the toilet seat. Looks like one and it's where your tax has been flushed.

LOL, that made me chuckle.

It's disappointing though, so many tourists are desperate to visit Japan and can't. It should have been a lucrative Olympics.

They should cancel the opening ceremony now, only sensible thing to do.

My gut tells me foreigners won't be visiting Japan even in 2022. Lucky Olympians.

And all of your personal info, such as GPS location, phone number, IMEI, e-mail and message text, is being sent to Chinese intelligence agency servers.

Who cares? I mean what are they going to do with it?

Having said I might get a Pixel/OnePlus next since I'm tired of MIUI OS.

Posted in: Xiaomi grabs number two spot in surging smartphone market: survey See in context

I've been using Xiaomi since 2016. The phones are so cheap I can switch every year or two and three quality is decent. The only issue is MiUI which I'm used to but not so keen on.

Deport them and give them a ban on re-entering

It's just a matter of time before AI can translate well in real time, might take another 10 years but it will happen.

What use will he be to her or the children now without a job?

Find a job or go home.

He's probably got a lot of photos, no way would this be the first time.

The good thing is that the new cars won't have Renault engines in them.

Were the children on the sidewalk, or wasn't there one?

I know space is a premium, but seriously, no sidewalks is just asking for it.

Posted in: China seen as top U.S. partner in Asia, Japan more reliable: poll See in context

Pretty much everything we buy now is Chinese. Designed in the West and made in China. How does Japan fit into this business relationship?

It's a shame, but I guess nothing lasts for ever.

Posted in: Japan's population falls to 126.22 mil in 2020; drops out of top 10 in world See in context

Less people is much better overall for the world. Less strain on resources and the planet.

The world's population is increasing though.

Posted in: Money, money, money: The cost of Tokyo's pandemic-delayed Olympics See in context

It's not that much money when you consider Japan's national debt (12T USD). Plus they can print their own currency.

It's just really bad luck this whole pandemic that's ruined their Olympics.

It's a funny old world. Perhaps the West shouldn't have interfered when Japan tried to colonize China in 1937.

Posted in: Japanese companies opening vaccination sites amid slow national rollout See in context

In 1970 there was a whopping 2 million births in Japan and 700 thousand abortions. That generation knew how to do it, what's changed?

Posted in: Japan births hit new record low in 2020 See in context

Does Japan need a large population though? Surely they are moving away from heavy industry, leave that to China.

Being born just to work and support old people, is that a good reason for life.

Anyway the world population is increasing thanks to poorer nations, perhaps Japan can take some immigrants?

Does anyone in the West just think that China will sit back and take it, they are very wrong.

People should just put their money where their mouth is and not buy Chinese made stuff, but hey they won't do that because it will cost them.

It's like taking your shoes off when you go in a house, and the need to not be wearing shoes when you enter the afterlife.
