Great news. Everything is ok then. Back to normal folks.

I say go for it.

Most mornings recently, I have to avoid drunk revellers coming home from a night out as I make my to the station going to work. Yesterday there were two staggering drunk, shouting in the streets!!!

Certain people can't be trusted and certain businesses are not acting responsibly.

Do do what needs to be done.

Get over it already. Put a mask on. If you don't, you're being self-centred. The reasons for it are loud and clear.

I see quite a few maskless thirty somethings and younger walking through Shinjuku station on a daily bases. I wonder what types of people they are. Do you have loved ones? Do they care about others? It seems not. Very sad.

That's enough judging for one day.

Microwave cooking is basically steaming. It is one of the healthiest modes of food preparation.

There are alternatives to plastic wraps. Have a look in Loft for some ideas. Otherwise, a loose fitting plate can act as a cover.

Ps I don't actually believe I took the time-out to write that!

I have yet see any social distancing go on here. Some people still won't wear masks.

Have to agree with Tokyo M. Once vaccine and medical treatment is in place, governments will go back to putting economic gain before people's wellbeing. We'll be back to trashing the place in no time.

Posted in: Japanese buff men delivery service will send beefcake, and also things to eat, to your door See in context

If men are ok with being objectified, then why shoudn't that be the standard that we are all held to?

I can't see how your comments and standpoint can be the accurate representation of all men, which undermines your posts.

I'm all for people being happy. If a significant number of people are unhappy with a gender being objectified and it is a rational to be unhappy, I support them.

Like my comment said for the "good of society" is where I am coming from, not my self serving opinion. Why not give that approach some consideration, no?

Strangerland asked

How does this backpedal on gender equality?

Recently someone posted this sage comment in a different thread. I don't know his name but I think it might answer your question.

For the good of society, we all need to be held to the same standards. Without equitable relations for one sex, the other won't buy into it.

Thank you to that poster.

There sure is. News sources being the biggest culprit.

Posted in: Japan joins calls for investigation into WHO's virus response See in context

I also strongly think that all media outlets should be investigated on how they have been reporting this crisis.

Who can say that the daily news has not made the situation worse in most cases???

She looks terribly cold for someone embarking on probably the most significant experiment in modern times. Could some one not have supplied her with clothes as well as a new vaccine?

Being able to see the top of her black bra is also not very "inspiring". (cringe)

Is anyone surprised? The daily pattern...

Glimmer of hope = Smash = It's worse than all that = No hope

(repeat daily)

Why does the WHO not produce a fact list of what we know so far, things we are unsure of and what other countries are doing to combat this problem. Rather than this latest fatalistic discourse after 4 months into the crisis: "Most countries are still in the early stages of their epidemics," warns the head of the WHO"

Considering what the whole world is in the middle of and where it all started, it is no surprise (an hard to feel any sympathy)

Hosting them should be a privilege. Some sort of conditional agreement should be made that will reduce the chances of this world crisis happening again.

From what I have seen and heard, most people did some sort of hanami before this soft-lockdown.

Nonetheless, next year will more the merrier. Stay safe every one and stay in doors!

Now Gril in Tokyo, don't you remember your promise from last week? Just to remind you from March 22 you wrote:

Your input is valuable, and I will immediately stop being sarcastic. Instead I will stay completely quiet,

Why do I care?

Because your responses are muddying and confusing a very serious issue. Like I said before you are compounding the issues that your are campaigning against.

This is worrying.

From the above link

So, tone down the sarcasm and work on clever wit instead which is usually devoid of hostility and thus more appreciated by those you’re communicating with. In essence, sarcasm is easy (as is most anger, criticism and meanness) while true, harmless wit takes talent.
