Posted in: Yes or No? Vital vote on Brexit plan set for Saturday in UK See in context

I have been against Brexit,but very much opposed to a do-over. Lost a referendum when it would have been easier to survive it,so no second chance needed.Unfortunately those who voted for Leave will not bear the economic pain of withdrawing,because they have money or want ethnic groups out no matter what. So the only angst I feel is for those voting Remain,but will suffer the brunt of not being under the EU umbrella.

When said crime is done by someone under 20, we always gotta read about how they're a minor,so can't be named.Now she's 20, but no name? Explain that. Is it because she goes to uni? And if she were a jobless mother,it'd be printed? The double standard in society is real.

This is the year of the step-father and crimes.Even the seven year old missing from weeks ago,had her mother in a relationship with her de facto stepfather.

There's a new term of musu-kon,which is the way mothers fawn over their sons that has reduced the boys to being pretty feeble,mentally and emotionally.Starts from kindergarten and goes all the way through.A major part of the why boys are so lame in their lives.

Posted in: Japan beats Scotland 28-21 to advance to Rugby World Cup quarterfinals for first time See in context

A great game.One of two halves,with Japan hanging on at the end,coupled with Scotland's carelessness when they had chances to score.There was some stout D by both teams too. Like Matsushima going forward with the ball,but the bloke can't tackle. My only real gripe is that the game finished at 80 minutes on the dot.With so many guys going down crock and delaying play,there were at least 5 or so minutes that should have been added on like in football.But Japan still deserved to win.Gonna have to go next level for South Africa though.

Sorry, @cracaphat. That was an awkward typo, not my intention.

I saw 118 comments,but for the life of me couldn't see the traction for them.Haven't looked at any either.Japan's been bankrolling her and Naomi seemingly has to choose her nationality.Probably will keep her U.S. nationality discreetly,so where's the ongoing discussion?

If Scotland wanted to secure a quarterfinal spot and not risk enforced draws due to the weather, then they needed to win their earlier games.

The above goes without saying.But my simple point is that favoritism would've been shown to the N.Z. team if their situations were reversed.And with the policy of stronger teams being given yonks between each game as opposed to the minnows,my point remains probably true.Scotland ain't no rugby lightweight,but...

Posted in: Typhoon makes landfall on Izu Peninsula; one dead, at least 50 injured See in context

In the end,all's well that ends well. An unfortunate loss of life,some damage of various kinds,but not on a justifiable scale to shut down,particularly the Kansai area, for a few drops of rain. And the "Better safe than sorry" line is as annoying as shoganai. Prepare for the morning the night before comes to mind.

I understand the reasoning behind it, and do think it is somewhat necessary.

If N.Z. were in Scotland's shoes, in need of a win,the game would be played no matter what. I mean just for their haka is what Japanese fans love seeing.Getting bored of it myself.

Posted in: What do you think about diplomatic immunity? See in context

I guess the question stems from the U.S.ambassador's wife who killed a young man in England the other day whilst driving.And how she hopped on a plane and left the country quick sharp.Treat it like a hit and run case.But more importantly,she's a regular citizen,NOT the actual ambassador.Do the right thing and send her back to England.But with now administration's morals good luck with that.

To be fair,the worry of the typhoon is really only for the Kanto area.But the idiot box was going on like it was the whole country lol.Rain's just about stopped here. Might go to the supa.Lol.

To the end of saving lives, minimizing injuries to people, and property damage, as well as, in the possible aftermath such as power outages decreasing the stress and deaths that might occur.

When things go really bad, the media often later gets blamed for not having given sincere or proper warnings, cracaphat.

I'm fully aware,but my point still remains that the media lay it on thicker than it has to be.Unless you're a newborn or dgaf,we know how to behave by now.I feel for the rugby tourist fans who might come from countries that don't have this kind of weather back home. Gives 'em something to talk about when they return home though.

Posted in: NBA decides to remain silent for rest of China trip See in context

NBA's business with China is worth $8 billion dollars.Nike's business with them is $36 billion dollars. It's clear to see who told the players to shut up and dribble. Everyone/enterprise has a boss. China's Nike's.Nike's the NBA's and the NBA's the players. But the silence has exposed the NBA and the players getting money from China as just money-grubbers.

Kansai area will get some constant rain but that's about it.Clearly with the typhoon heading Kanto's way it's a problem.What annoys me is the way the tv is sexing up the impending typhoon with proclamations of this and that.Showing recent and last year's strong typhoons to clearly scare-monger people.Telling us what it might do and just generally getting people fired up to what end?

Everywhere is shutting down for the day except for this school that's having an seminar if you want your child to go there. Can't have a chance for your child to enter unless you go today!

Japan's decision to hold the Rugby World Cup during the typhoon season was a big mistake.And on top of that,next year's Olympics is during the humid,sweltering season they call summer,which on paper listening to the bellyaching, is another own goal.Everyone knows the best time to visit Japan is during the spring,in part to the weather.And the "summer" Olympics could be held in May and still warm weather.

Every day is a new article/ fear about the Olympics. Fear of lack of accommodation,the hot weather, language communication,the transport system,climate change and today's security shortage.Why hold the damn thing in the first place then?

Posted in: England reach quarterfinals as red card cripples Pumas See in context

Back in my youth I used to play rugby in England and Australia. But when I became an adult I lost interest because there was too much kicking.And watching the games there's a whole lotta kicking,especially the high up and under.Not feeling this World Cup so much beyond the S.A. vs N.Z. game. Will wait for the business end for it to get real.The group stage is just exhibition rugby.

Westerners for the most part,have an innate respect for Japan,meaning international sporting events are going to be generally trouble free.I remember when Japan/SK hosted the football world cup and the fear was of the unruly hooligans,particularly English fans,going amok.But there was nothing of the sort and I put that down to Asian cultural respect and Japan has that in the world.
