Posted in: Exploding Takata air bag inflator has killed another driver in U.S. See in context

The accident is an isolated case of unreplaced air bag. Anyhow, I wonder if Takata still in business.

This is what happens when a man can't keep his sexual urges and pudendum in check.

Posted in: Ex-SDF member says misconduct routine in her unit See in context

In a male-dominated society, a lady bringing to light the misconduct of military men would have been unmistakably tough. Hats off to Ms. Rina Gonoi for mustering the courage to come forward!

Glad to hear that the Defense Ministry took a pivotal action to discharge men-in-uniform who did not remain true to their oath of service to Japan and its countrymen.

Posted in: Croatia reach World Cup quarterfinals with penalty shoot-out victory over Japan See in context

If the Japanese footballers had stuck on their guns right up to the last minute and stepped on the gas in terms of ball possession, they could have advanced to the quarterfinals. But Samurai Blue visibly lost momentum in the second half.

Anyhow, it goes without saying that Japan put up a good fight and has established itself as a force to be reckoned with and a team to watch for in future major football tournaments.

Posted in: Japan's Defense Ministry, seeking arms buildup, makes opaque budget request See in context

"...opaque budget request"

Opaque is not the best descriptor to use for "budget request."

How about "vague budget request" or "obscure budget request?"

It is suicide mission in the guise of chivalry.

If China can do it to a Japanese diplomat, just imagine what it can do to powerless individuals.

Posted in: Japan condemns Russia's move as violation of Ukraine sovereignty See in context

Without sanctions, it's all bark and no bite. Russia's invasion of Ukraine should be seen as an attack to democracy. But if Putin could get away with what he did in Georgia, Moldova, and Crimea, how is this going to be any different? I won't be surprised if Poland will be the next country he'll invade. China is closely monitoring this chaos while intimately thinking of Taiwan. Democracy is hanging by a thread. The next thing you'll know, Communism is right at your doorstep.

Depression is a walking time bomb. It needs psychiatric and pharmacological interventions. 

To anyone reading this who is undergoing depression right now, find 101 reasons to live and keep you going. 

Remember, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Never give up. One day, you'll get through it, and you will be grateful that you did.

Posted in: Mask mandates imposed by governments and employers: Persecution or protection? See in context

Real talk, those unvaccinated who feel punished for wearing protective masks are but a bunch of selfish people who only think of themselves while potentially putting at risk the lives of others. And mind you, most of them are the same people who do not believe that COVID-19 exists. Just imagine their audacity to challenge governments. 

I do not know why vaccination has come to a point of being politicized. The idea behind it all along was to give immunity to people from certain diseases. So, in a nutshell, it's all about public health. What part of it is hard to understand?

Posted in: 3 stabbed at University of Tokyo ahead of entrance exams See in context

My heart breaks for the old man who is in the surgery room right now fighting for his dear life.

My heart also breaks for the two students who burned the midnight oil to have a shot at their universities of choice.

But my heart mostly breaks for the 17-year old attacker for all the obvious reasons.
