Posted in: Japan eyes tougher jail sentence for insults to tackle cyberbullying See in context

to those saying oh just don't go online are either Luddites, not creatives/business owners of some kind(they use socials for promoting and sharing their work) or just plain ignorant.

the fact is that the internet is and has been a part of our lives for decades. we need to learn to treat each other better using it. it's just as real and impactful as physical space.

secondly what an insult to Kimura that those people only had to pay 90 dollars for contributing to her death.

Posted in: Trial of accused 9/11 mastermind restarts, days before 20th anniversary See in context

not that I'm okay with the acts they are being tried for...but it's absolutely laughable (in the most depressing way) that THEY are treated so inhumanely as war criminals and yet the US presidents who are guilty of far worse sit comfortably in their designer suits.

Posted in: Opposition protests LDP's refusal to convene Diet session See in context

The saddest thing is most Japanese under 45 just don't vote. They've bought in wholesale that their vote doesn't change anything. And thus...here we are

Posted in: Int'l body calls on Japan for stronger anti-money laundering actions See in context

I've had my cash card suddenly stop working only to report this to the bank and be met with a stack of anti-laundering forms to fill out. I suspect it was done on purpose so I would fill these out. Absolutely insane. They treat regular people like criminals and yet the LDP can accept massive bribes as it pleases.

Posted in: Illegal amounts of overtime going on at 37% of Japanese companies in government inspections See in context

@Monty

exactly this! it's wholly inefficient! they are wasting human and physical resources by sitting in the office for so long. wasting electricity and life.

It's honestly disturbing how many Japanese people I've met who don't have any hobbies or know what to do outside of work aside from drinking.

Posted in: Schools take action against rising pandemic-linked student suicides See in context

it's still just lip service!

these schools will still bully and enforce their militaristic rules for any child who is different. There is no mental health support here.

going "back to normal" for these schools is just causing child death by their regular means and not from the pandemic.

I must be missing something but how can a school claim authority over a students life outside of school? sounds more than a little sketchy.

Posted in: Pet ownership in Japan on the rise amid pandemic See in context

pets aren't a fad, they're living feeling creatures. the state of animal welfare in this country is utterly depressing. I'd love to see a ban on "puppy mills" and tight regulations on breeders as well. don't even get me started on pet stores...

Private citizens filling the gov'ts responsibility. This isn't good when the gov't fails so completely at their duty, that regular people need to volunteer to provide a necessary service. Unironically depressing.

Poor cows indeed. I wouldn't say the waters are "shark infested" though. There's no infestation, they literally live there, it's their home.
