No remorse, no cooperation? then make him pay fully for his horrible crime.
Are you trying to suggest that remorse or cooperation would be grounds for reducing his punishment?

Posted in: Once a home is more than 10 or 15 years old, its value is worse than nothing because of the cost of demolishing it. Land without anything on it has a higher value than land with a pre-owned house on it. See in context
Can you trust a chief economist who can't spell "worth"?

What "Japan Inc" avoids talking about is the fact that Buffett bought all five of the big shoshas, because he doesn't see any significant difference between them. Meanwhile, these shoshas are all competing unnecessarily with each other in the exact same fields, doing the exact same things. Now should Buffett ever start pushing for conglomeration, that would really shake up Japan.

"Physical: 100" caused some controversy by pitting contestants of different genders against each other, prompting questions about whether it was fair. Ultimately, the top five contestants were men.
Had to laugh at this. Where are all the people assert that gender is nothing but a social construct, and canceling those who dares disagree?

Why media articles continue to give such prominent column space to fringe elements that dispute scientific fact is beyond me. Stop pandering to these minority interests and focus on the majority middle. Most people in society are not actually extremists baying for cancellations at the slighest offence.

Describing the former owner thus is problematic journalism to say the least. Doesn't matter that he was Jewish. Doesn't matter that he was a banker.
Good journalism provides context and colour to a story. Otherwise, it wouldn't be relevant to mention the owner was a Japanese company, or that the Nazi's were involved, or that the decendents of the family are in America. And yet, all those facts are there, to provide context and colour.

When the coronavirus pandemic struck, and restrictions on people's movements made it difficult to travel to the ocean, Kei decided to permanently move to Ichinomiya from Tokyo's Sumida Ward in January 2021.
What? I've been here the whole time, and there were definitely no such restrictions. I AirBnb'd in Ichinomiya in both summesr of 2020 and 2021. Need to stop this sort of dishonest journalism.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer nation. Not only do they censor information to their own people, but they try to influence us through pro-China discussion forum bots/humans. Don't get sucked in!

Twitter stock is already dislisted, Musk has taken it private after he overpaid.
And who is shocked that tons of people would flock to claim "official" accounts once he opened it up to anyone who had $8.

There's another perspective, sometimes you contact a Customer Support representative, who has a chip on their shoulder, and wants to feel "powerful", as the Customer, in such situations we inevitably have no solution.
You seem to have not finished your thought. Did you mean to add "... but to yell and harass the customer service staff." ?

They're consenting adults and are allowed to do what they want on their break. What's the problem exactly? Our society is so prudish and judgemental.

These protestors are like the missionaries of 400 years ago in Japan, trying to impose their values under the assumption of moral superiority. Nowadays, people who think that every social injustice, no matter how niche, needs to be solved prior to doing anything. You just need to shake your head and laugh. "Utopia (as defined by me) or nothing!" seems to be their motto.
As for me, I'm very much looking forward to the World Cup!

If you accept the author's premise that Kim is a strategic leader that must be taken seriously, and that his goal is to unify the Korean peninsula, then it should also follow that he would not use nukes, because such actions would only take him further from his goal. Threatening to use nukes, however, can be very effective, as evidenced by this author quaking in his boots.

This poor schmo probably really believed he was a big star, but then one day he woke up, looked at his bank account, looked around at his washed up career, his lack of future prospects, and then decided to get high instead of thinking about it any further.

Would the US tolerate a Chinese warship (not commercial vessel) near California or New York?- Highly unlikely.
Actually, Chinese navy vessels have visited Cuba many times.

How does a modern household in Japan even watch these movies nowadays? You can't seem to stream it anywhere. Do you actually have to go out and buy hardware that will play a physical disc?

Wow, a lot of socialists on this board. If there are enough people who don't put up with crap salaries, then the tide will rise. The problem is the apathetic "shoganai" attitude of the worker. If you're underpaid, do something about it. Change jobs. Then market conditions will then dictate that they will need to raise salaries. This exact dynamic has already happened in the video game industry in Japan. But if you have enough workers that stay, then nothing changes.
