I don't understand why they don't fast track it but just give a warning that side effects are still undetermined..

that would allow the public to choose for themselves...

Posted in: ALT asked to remove earrings by local education board See in context

The gum analogy is absolutely ludicrious... Why would the board of eduction even get involved?

Japanese schools waste a lot of time having meetings about trivial stuff... The high school I used to work at had a two hour meeting about whether girls should be able to wear tights in the winter.... seriously!!

But they have a tough time making decisions about important stuff...

Posted in: Trump no fan of Sacha Baron Cohen See in context

I loved the first movie and it was one of the biggest hits of the year so I guess a lot of people like him....I watched part 2 last night and it was funny. His daughter was great but parts are cringeworthy. He's too well known in the US to be able to pull off the jokes he did in the first movie...

Trump calling anyone a "fake" is kind of funny...but he would know

Posted in: Texas grand jury indicts Netflix over movie 'Cuties' See in context

It's on here on Japan's Netflix...It's decent film but there's more to it.. The main character is Muslim. Her father just married again (she's very bitter) and she joins a group rebel dance group.. There's no sex in the film just suggestive dancing and a couple of provocative scenes.

She's 12 in the film, I think it would have been less controversial and equally effective is she would have been 16. But all the controversy does is to get more people to watch it....

Mask Facism?? that's idiotic! It's a well known rule on all flights now. If it helps even a little it's worth it and not that big of a deal...if you don't like don't fly!!!

Posted in: Road rage case involving 44-year-old man in Yamagata sent to prosecutors See in context

I get often frustrated while driving in Japan. Some drivers are really really really slow. The speed limit's 40 and they're going 30... If the roads are crowded it's difficult to determine what is tailgating.

Posted in: Chef at top Tokyo sushi restaurant wins lawsuit after being fired for maybe having a tattoo See in context

I hate tattoos but ludicrous to fire someone without checking. My step-sister is a pharmacist in the US and they made her cover it up while she worked. (reasonable regardless of the position)

Posted in: Osaka surprised by impact of her call for racial justice See in context

Some of these comments are hilariously inept...she can be a professional athlete and a spokesperson..(is there a rule against it?)

One comment wrote he wasn't gong to watch her matches anymore..do you think she cares? You can't watch basketball, hockey, baseball, or football either...good luck with that!

It's great she's trying to speak out...

Posted in: Trump: NBA has become like 'a political organization' See in context

If Trump tried to show a little empathy and compassion towards the NBA players protesting instead of appealing strictly towards his red-neck, uneducated base..but he can't....

His number one concern is getting re-elected everything else is secondary...

You can't have a mandatory lockdown in Japan. The government doesn't have the legal power to arrest or fine people.. There can just make strong recommendations.
