Honestly, at this point, I'm actually surprised there aren't more of these types of incidents in that country.

I saw an American tourist kick off recently as we waited to board a Peach internal flight because his carry on was beyond the specified size. Held up the line for 5 minutes while he ranted and raved at the poor Japanese staff. It wasn't a good time to be the only other visible gaijin around.

How nice of them to build yet more high-rises in Tokyo that will be filled with rich Chinese.

Third AB try was a thing of simple beauty - best moment of the game.

But yeah, overall too many pens, primadonna reffing, and TMO reviews. The game needs speeding up.

Posted in: Processing overseas loss and grief as an expat See in context

This will happen to just about all long-term expats in Japan. I've even seen people divorce their J-spouses over it because they felt their other half (and their in-laws in general) were useless or worse than useless in such cases.

In my best friend's case, his J-MIL even had the temerity to criticize his mourning as "Otoko-rashikunai sugata".

He told me that the only reason he didn't throttle her there and then was the thought of how it would hurt his mother back home.

Great job, Djoko! Knew he would have the last laugh and be vindicated eventually. Where are all the salty JT pro-vaxx maniacs who boasted he would never ever set foot in Australia again? Hahahaha

Population is only rising in the the global south. In the northern hemisphere it is declining. These population alarmists might want to focus their attention south of the equator.

Posted in: Biden says missile that killed two in Poland may not have come from Russia See in context

I’m mostly interested that they’re repeatedly trying to sell such small “provocations” as a potential casus belli. I mean, do they really think anyone other than the Boomers gives one hair on an airborne rodent’s posterior about NATO or its oft-misrepresented Article 5, which commits absolutely no one to doing anything.

The funniest part is that the British are vowing “WE WILL DEFEND POLAND”.

They seem to have forgotten that the last time they promised to 'defend' Poland, the USSR ended up with all of Poland, all of Eastern Europe, and most of Central Europe.

I cannot imagine having a baby boy and then years later murdering my son. How is this even possible?

Impossible to judge, given JT as usual has given us next-to-no details about the case. That said, murder is always wrong, no matter the provocation.

Europe should get rid of the mindset that Europe’s problems are the worlds problems.

Exactly. It was that mindset that lead to WW1 and WW2 becoming global conflicts instead of just European ones.

Posted in: Warlord festival featuring Takuya Kimura draws 460,000 spectators in Gifu See in context

Obunaga is a dubious, contentious figure at best. It's like if 460K English people flocked to a town to hero worship Oliver Cromwell, ignoring or just not knowing all the blood he spilled and grief he caused, especially in Ireland. Or, for Americans, those who love Andrew Jackson disgust me as well.

Too many Japanese mindlessly worship this guy, that's what worries me.

Posted in: South Korean parents bury children killed in Halloween disaster See in context

A tragic event caused by combining an imported foreign hyper-commercialized 'custom' promoted and encouraged by their vassal overlords, and by their police incompetence and corruption as the vast bulk of the officers on duty that night were asssigned to blocking a political demo against the rule of satrap's governor.

Posted in: South Korean police admit responsibility for Halloween tragedy See in context

"Lessons will be learned, blah, blah, blah"

The fact is many people were calling the police as early as 7pm that the situation was getting dangerously out of control and that the police needed to come in in large numbers and break the flows of people up. But the police ignored them, because the Head of police was more interested in policing an anti-government demo in another part of the city.

Posted in: U.S. plans to deploy nuclear-capable B-52 bombers to Australia's north: report See in context

The US appears hell-bent on making sure that the Chinese are incentivized to not only take Taiwan, but attack Australia as well.

To say that the US military is behaving in an overtly provocative manner would be an understatement. It’s not at all unreasonable to wonder if the predominantly foreign cosmopolitan elite dictating the US military’s actions in Europe and Asia are pursuing this course of action, not because they are crazy or stupid, but in order to ensure the destruction of the US military.

They really want this war in DC, and they'll fight to the last Ukrainian, European, Taiwanese, Korean, Japanese, and Australian citizen to win it.

Congratulations Australia, you are now firmly in the cross-hairs for nuclear annihilation too.
