Posted in: Belarus runner alleges Olympic team tried to send her home See in context

She went to the Japanese police for protection LOL! First, the keystones probably had to look up Belarus on a map, then they no doubt laughed at her and sent her on her way.

Man, I'd hate to marry a Japanese "idol". Imagine all the things she had to err "do" to get to that position.

The food can keep going around and around for hours if it’s not busy.

Which is why almost nobody takes food from the rotating belt. You order separately and it comes to your table specifically.

Posted in: 3 billion people cannot afford a healthy diet See in context

What's the definition of "Insanity" again? As long as you continue to exclude the REAL reasons for food insecurity due to your own POLITICAL BIASES, just like you do with violent crime, you will never see the end of these problems!

Agree 100%. This is why I refuse to donate to these so-called "charities", and I am 100% against rich countries sending "foreign aid" to poorer countries.

Here at my company in Japan, I am amazed any of the men live past sixty. They seem to survive on cigarettes, canned coffee, and MSG/salt-laden instant noodles, for five days a week!

Japan doesn’t have a labor shortage. What is does have is a lack of decent jobs paying a living wage. Raise wages and all these positions will be filled the next day.

Show me a picture of a house being built in Japan from "2x4 with tin tacked on".

This site doesn't allow me to upload photos, but I can walk through any Japanese town and see such Third-World "housing". So could you, if you weren't so blind.

It doesn't help that Japanese building codes are so poor. "Houses" consisting of 2x4 with tin tacked on to them....talk about Third-World.

Won't happen. If Japanese companies published a P&L and a balance sheet based on truth, they would all be dissolved within a week.

I would be interested to know more about this man so we can avoid this event in the future. What was his motive? What is his background?

I sometimes use Internet cafes if I miss the last train. You would not believe the level of weird Japanese males you see in them. "Socially retarded" doesn't come even close.

Japanese zoos are horrendous places for the animals. They are built purely for the Japanese people visiting.

I went to an Internet cafe the other day. They stopped selling alcohol due to Covid, but you can bring in your own alcohol. Japan, the land that logic forgot!

Posted in: Apple faces employee resistance in office return plan: report See in context

People would rather mess around at home than go to the office, hardly breaking news. "Working from home" = "slacking off" for 99.9% of people. The virus is just a convenient excuse for most of them.

Posted in: Rebuking someone to the point of letting them break down is power harassment. I filed this suit to let it widely be known to society how much such language and actions hurt people, as I think my husband is not the only victim. See in context

I have a power harassing pr*ck of a boss here. The other day I walked out of a meeting we were having due to his condescending tone and attitude. He freaked out, worried that I was going to tell upper management. Been all good-goody to me since then. These people are bullies who crumble when someone stands up to them. The problem in Japan is the education system indoctrinates you to never speak up.
