Posted in: Gov't to shorten quarantine period for vaccinated travelers See in context

To keep you alive maybe?

Jesus Christ on a bike. Reaching and badly. You've got to be really sick already and up there in age.

Posted in: Gov't to shorten quarantine period for vaccinated travelers See in context

Vaccinated people only will get 4 days shorter? That's how Japan handle covid.

Better than what NSW is planning to do.Re-open for vaccinated from the 18th Oct,but if not,gotta wait to Dec 1st to go out.The mother of all bullying/ forcing of people to get jabbed up or what?

As long as Takaichi's out,it's all good.Though some people are impressed with her speaking.She's too connected to Damenomics for my liking.

I'm pretty sure China could just go and annex Taiwan if they wanted,a la Russia doing the Crimea.And the world leaders would just watch and apart from a few complaints roll with it.

Posted in: Can family relationships and friendships broken or frayed because of differences over vaccinations, restrictions, mask-wearing and lockdowns due to the pandemic be repaired? See in context

Going by the hardliners for demanding vaccinations,it'll be determined by the relationship.Quiet with family,a little distant with friends and flexing on websites.

Posted in: Ohtani hits consecutive triples as Angels rout Mariners 14-1 See in context

 No doubt, Ohtani is the MVP,

I was of the same opinion until 3 days ago.But I saw the stats between him and Vlad jr and though it's a great individual season,it hasn't really helped the team,hence that's not the reason to give him.Vlad has better numbers across the board,though nitpicking over only one triple and 4 SBs is petty. Shotime has 183 whiffs to Guerrero's 107. Can always find a stat if you want. One player's carrying his team to the playoffs,the other isn't.But he's had an impressive season on a weak team.

Posted in: UK counts on vaccines, 'common sense' to keep virus at bay See in context

An article trying to create FUD. I guess it's saying lockdowns should be going on in the UK then? Because it's not suggesting life goes on with or without the virus.And nitpicking on people not wearing masks in public or in parliament,when vaccination rates are so high in the UK, is just unnecessary.You can get Covid, jabbed or not,so what's the writer's point?

Watched the season finale last night and we loved it.The missus even thought it did so well garnering Emmy's because of that final episode.It was so touching and moving.Finished strong!

I read a quote the other day: "In business,what problem are you solving? The more difficult the problem,the more money there is fixing it." Don't need an MBA for that.

China clearly is the biggest shot-caller in the world.All roads lead to them.Bitcoin illegal.Plunge and panic.Arrest our bigshot citizens,we take yours who did nothing.The New World Order isn't looking so great,is it?

Posted in: China declares all cryptocurrency transactions illegal See in context

So many people need to up their level of knowledge concerning Bitcoin and the like.The default position of going negative for negative's sake is lame. It's similar to the stock market but more volatile.And we know the stock market is a bastion of honesty.So pipe down or read up and learn.Because cryptocurrency is here to stay,China crackdown or not.

I watched and loved The Sopranos,but getting tired of these prequels.Breaking Bad did it with B.C.S. which I stopped.Power doing it with Power Book III.Didn't bother looking.A pure money grab in using the son.

A very darn good and da-kine witty piece! If this was a movie what would be your title?

Anyways, the world will be watchin how the UK and OZ votes!

Japan definitely will let TW in , no doubt about it!

Will OZ and the UK do another France? Coming soon...

Thank you Hiro. As to the movie title? Seen this before? Punk'd? The G-7 countries are trying to sit in the middle by kinda recognizing Taiwan,but not enough to pizz off China.But that won't please anybody.Take a position and stick with it.China has theirs,give them yours.And let the chips fall where they may... or not.

Any sports player that has a temper tantrum on international TV should be banned and told to apologize publicly.

My favorite male tennis player was Johnny Mac,but should he have been banned for his bad behavior? Of course not.Only a non sportsperson would suggest such ignorance for attention and to get downvotes.Get rid of that voting system I say.Lazy,valueless comments wouldn't be made if they weren't acknowledged.

Posted in: Taiwan applies to join Pacific trade deal days after China See in context

Democracy or so-called democracy has been found wanting during this pandemic. Cough Australia,cough. So my first feeling is that Taiwan will be rejected to appease the China mainland.I can't remember the last time a country had to feel repercussions for their actions.Generally it's to pick on weak nations like North Korea.The usual big countries don't have that threat due to their economic,military or both influence.The world is so passive and weak today,that even Chamberlain would be like "Got damn.Ain't shiz changed."

Posted in: Australian PM says Macron not taking his calls See in context

It is a week since Australia without warning tore up a long-standing A$90 billion (U.S.$66 billion) deal to buy a dozen French submarines.

If anyone supports this behavior by a Prime Minister, is obviously not doing a business.It is clearly in bad form that Australia didn't have the decency to say in advance and has underlying tones that many can't read or understand.That trying to revamp an Australia,UK and US alliance(wasp) is bad news.Australia is straying out of its lane for starters.

Posted in: Vaccine mandates: Is no jab, no entry into restaurants, cafes, bars, sporting and event venues discrimination? See in context

I am pretty dissapointed at how quickly so many of us are ready to turn on the next guy for something.

Many people have been found out for who they really are during this pandemic,including in our families,friends and internet posters etc.And it's not always about whether you got the jab or not.But at the same time, it shouldn't be a surprise either.A crisis is how we really learn about people,no?

Giving away what people in Japan don't want to take.Yet to read any Pfizer being offered up by the govt.Lol.Priority should be given to people getting one shot before people getting "boosters."

Posted in: Vaccine mandates: Is no jab, no entry into restaurants, cafes, bars, sporting and event venues discrimination? See in context

If you’re mentally strong enough to put up with not being vaccinated in the middle of a pandemic...blah,blah,blah.

I got vaxxed by the way,but unlike many of you vaccine thumpers,I care about people.And discriminating against them openly because they're not doing the same as me is weak.But when you've only known entitled,well...

Posted in: Vaccine mandates: Is no jab, no entry into restaurants, cafes, bars, sporting and event venues discrimination? See in context

It is.It's pathetic that you're not "forced" to get jabbed, but if you don't,you're prevented from being able to do normal things.Like go to bars/restaurants,gyms,indoor or outdoor facilities. Will end up can't talk to someone if they're not vaxxed,which many posters here want to espouse. Being brain-washed to think like that is dangerously sick in of itself. I'm sure you've got family members who won't take the jab.But you'll not ignore them though.Or not with your usual online warrior bravado anyway.

The first season of Ted Lasso was good because I know the filming location very well, and met my wife there. But the second season is really tedious.

Yeah I'm with you about season one being good.But the wife and I aren't really feeling season two.She wondered if the writers had changed or what. But Rebecca is very attractive to look at.

Posted in: Faction politics wane in LDP leadership race See in context

As long as opposition parties are weak,with little chance of winning,the LDP habatsu will still hold sway, regardless of the younger generation's stance.The allowing to vote against the habatsu leaders choice only shows that the four on offer are not so strong candidates that the leaders couldn't decide on a consensus choice.That:s all.
