I don't care what others think, the stares or the criticism. I will never ever wear one. I know some people will say it's not about me but protecting others, but those at risk shouldn't be outside in the first place. Ultimately, if I don't care about me getting it, why should I care about others?What makes a random stranger so special to the extent of making others to forcefully wear a cloth over their face just so such person feels safe? I don't get it.

It could jump to 5000 cases a day, it doesn't matter. People don't care anymore, yesterday I went out dining with the fam and a group of friends. It was a pleasant surprise to see the restaurant packed and everyone enjoying their lives.

This is beyond ridiculous, another place to avoid while this nonsense is running, I honestly like the food at that restaurant, but even if they don't force you to use that thing while eating I refuse to support a business that keeps pushing the masks-are-our-saviours narrative.

So is the Arlington National Cemetery in the US and nobody complains about it.

Ironically, loads of Japanese love the USA and their culture, after visiting the museum in Hiroshima I really can't understand why. Had my country of birth been the target of those horrible bombs made by the Americans we would certainly hate them until now. I can't understand the Japanese sometimes.

The reality is that they don't have enough money to give to businesses and people should they decide to declare a national state of emergency. And since most of the infections are among young people who will probably not die and the number of deaths isn't rising, I agree with Mr. Abe on his decision to keep the economy open.

As it should be, why would let's say... Canada worry about a country like... idk... Congo. Every country should care about their own people only.

Latin America has the most corrupt governments in the world after Africa, Latin Americans live very unhealthy lives, most people being obese and ridden with chronic illnesses, plus the health system is a joke. Lived there for many years, not surprising really.

I meant: Japanese are not confrontational on my previous post.
-15 ( +4 / -19 )
I will never ever wear one, I refuse to do so. Why should I unwillingly put a cloth on my safe so others can feel safe? I don't get it, if not feeling safe, just stay home at let others live their lives. Fortunately, Japanese are confrontational and the government can't demand people to wear mask due to the constitution, therefore, I will continue to go maskless regardless what others think.

Globally it will be a very sad Christmas, and as someone said, will bring most people back to the essence of it, which is good. Personally, it will be same as usual as my friends, family and myself aren't worried at all about the virus.

Everyone should have the right to die the way they want, it is unfair for the doctors as the only thing they did in the end was helping her.
Even myself, despite being healthy as a horse, if I didn't have a wife and kids to look for, I'd do it right away if it was legal as life during this pandemic has become unbearable with all the social distance thing, travel bans and mask wearing, etc.
I have read about ALS and seen people suffering from the illness and it's something I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemies, not surprised at all by her decision and the doctors'.

I personally don't care about their corporate scandals, as long as their product is of good quality their problems among executives aren't my concern. I've been a loyal Nissan customer since I've been a car owner in Japan and expect to be one for the foreseeable future.

Whatever! Most Japanese are tired and don't care anymore about the numbers.
If we get it and die so be it, death is an inevitable part of life. If afraid, stay home. let others live their lives.

If I witness it, unless is a family member or a friend, I will keep pretending I didn't see it. Even though I'm a naturalized citizen, if I get involved, the police will be more suspicious about me than the chikan perpetrator, not worth the hassle imo

What about not caring anymore and just accept that illness and death have always been a part of human life. What's with the irrational fear of death? I honestly don't care if I get it and die of it. Life will always entail risks.

Whether the virus comes under control or not, Beijing should be stripped of the Olympics as a punishment for the economic havoc the CCP and their virus have created.

I've been eyeing the car since its concept stage. It will probably be my next acquisition, pending a test drive and reviews from first buyers.

Posted in: Wearing masks and practicing social distancing to prevent the virus from spreading are making people feel stressed, exhausted and sick of the daily pressure they face to observe these norms. That is only natural. See in context
Avoid the stress and don't wear a mask. Do not care what others think.

I've got an easy fix for y'all. Don't wear one!

She's 16, old enough to know what she was getting into. Why is police checking private messages anyway? Scary

We can't put the toothpaste back in the tube. The Japanese public saw the monetary and psychological damage caused by shut-downs and have chosen to take their chances. The low death rates have turned out to be an "accepted risk" just like with other dangers in society. These higher positive numbers will keep some at home and will also trigger more personal prudence for those who are out and about. It is refreshing to see the general population decide their own fates rather than a few people in government. You wouldn't know it from reading JT forums but most Japanese people are objective, sensible, and reasonable. I trust Japan won't turn out to be a Corona disaster.
Best comment ever!

Judging by the number of deaths and the amount of serious cases, 200+ new cases in a city were 40 million people converge, it isn't that bad, stop the fearmongering. Japanese people for the most part are very clean, take baths, remove their shoes in the house, eat healthy, aren't on meds or are obese, this won't go exponential like in the west.

If I'm dead, having money or not won't matter. But since I'm alive I certainly prefer to have some money.
I honestly respect the opinion of the maskers and if it makes you feel better go ahead and wear one. Idk maybe if I lived in Tokyo or a country where the virus is out of control, I'd wear one. But given my circumstances and the ones of the prefecture where I live (0 cases for weeks already), i prefer not to wear one, it is just a matter using common sense and judging your personal circumstances.

Proud anti masker here! Not even the risk of death will make me wear those things, although, admittedly due to the fear of losing money, I reluctantly wear one if visiting a client that requires one on their premises.
The infirm, immunosuppressed and fearful should stay home and let the rest of us enjoy life without a cloth on our faces.
Wear a mask if you want but don't force it on others!
