The guy didn't do anything wrong nor illegal. If they take the necessary precautions that might tho with a decomposing body, I see no problem.

It's gonna be a big boom. So much that tour agencies and services will have a lot more than what they could handle.

No and I will watch the games on TV (YouTube).

I try (tho almost impossible) not to buy stuff made in China, and nothing on Amazon shipped straight from China.

Is it normal for taxis to do such long drives? They should probably ask for a valid credit card in advanced for such long drives.

Maybe they'll have restaurants and bars display a double rainbow sign, instead of a single rainbow one, as a symbol of "strengthened" measures?

Zoroto said it best yesterday:

State of Emergency: Close bars at 8pm

Quasi State of Emergency: Close bars at 8pm

Stronger Measures: Close bars at 8pm

Medical Emergency: Close bars at 8pm

We have some real creative geniuses running this country....

Posted in: Biden tightens some gun controls; says much more needed See in context

There should be no gun restrictions at all. If people can't handle them then that's their problem but everyone should have the right to defend themselves

Justify the need of owning a bazooka and assault rifles to defend yourself in the streets of murica.

Posted in: On average, how much time each day do you spend on social networking sites? See in context

I think I've spend too much time trolling on JT this morning. And during the last two years, too much time on Facebook. I wish I could lessen my screentime but man, it's hard. Specially now I've lost contact with say many friends during the pandemic.

Yes, but one wants to erode the 1st and 2nd amendment

So... amendments cannot be amended? Lol.

The right wants to ensure gun rights and democracy, 

By "democracy" you must have meant "anarchy." Or... wait. Those storming the capitol must have been leftist antifa, disguised as rightists saint warriors republicans.

Bass, still hitting on that drum "it's always the left, trying to destroy the country vs the right being saints?" When in reality, they're both just the same, muricans.

Can you believe that with teachers pretty much doing all the parenting, all their unpaid overtime and zero life outside of work, there's not a "Teachers Day" in Japan?

Posted in: Do you feel that you have become complacent about anti-coronavirus measures in one way or another? See in context

Not gonna lie. I went skiing and snowboarding almost every single day from early December till late March. It was the most amazing season ever. No lines, chest deep powder snow and weeks of non stop snowing. Crazy good season (in between all this stuff).

I tried wearing a mask when in close contact with others and keeping as much social distance as possible. But in many situations I didn't coz I felt too complacent or it was pointless.

At some point I started to let the guard down a little and right there, I was in the middle of a cluster of infections. Fortunately I never showed any symptoms and tested negative in both tests. The people I was in contact with that were positive, had a fever and/or coughing for less than five days.

After that my guard went up again but it was impossible to practice the 3C at times. Plus, ABSOLUTELY no one else cared so... that's why we're still in this thing.

Are they also going to start teaching them why women menstruate, why boys' weiners are hard in the morning and you know, science? What, they're not going through that yet? Probably coz they're still 4 to 6 years old.

Let kids be kids. Don't start confusing them with what the parents wanted to have.

Hopefully, it will be determined that the baby was still alive and this pair of scum will be charged with murder.

This comment sounds like someone full of hate. Good thing investigations are performed by multiple people before reaching a conclusion.

Posted in: Tokyo ward begins certifying LGBT families See in context

So like getting a honor certificate at school. Makes you feel good at the moment but it really doesn't mean anything. And since city hall A doesn't know how much hoken you paid at city hall B, even more pointless.

Make it legal already and stop putting pinky bandaids on a large wound. No, it won't stop people from having kids or tear down society as politicians preach it.

Posted in: Couple pretending to inspect apartment rob real estate agent See in context

My wife is a Real Estate Agent and she carries cash, credit cards, bonds, gold, silver, and sometimes bitcoin.

I'm curious. Why would a real estate agent carry so much at the time of showing a property? I thought the transactions were always done at the office after all the paperwork.

Posted in: Labor ministry employee power harassed by his own power harassment counselor See in context

Ha! Why am i not surprised by this?

I had quite a similar situation a few years back. Similar tho I never sued the individuals involved coz I was afraid the contracting company would refuse to sponsor my visa at the time.

At this Japanese public junior high school I used to work at, I would constantly get bullied and harassed by this teacher who thought she was more than anyone else. Actually not just me. Other younger Japanese teachers as well but mostly me. She would team up with two more teachers to talk sh..stuff about me, right on my face and talk down on me.

And who was this, "example of educator," who would come into the teachers office and treat others as she was better than anyone else? Wait for it... The teacher in charge of the students' "ijime zero" campaign. The irony.

I personally have NEVER seen a foreigner without a mask.

Come to Kutchan and that'll change as soon as you start seeing people. Also lots of young Japanese "adults" that couldn't care any lesser.
