Olympics have surprisingly being a success so far. Kai should join in enjoying the games. No point protesting them at this point.

Posted in: Japan concerned over S Korea's Olympic food site See in context

South Korea continues to ban imports of fishery products from Fukushima and nearby prefectures, more than a decade after the earthquake and tsunami disaster 

Good. Takes more than 40 years to fix this. And water has leaked into the ocean. Also Japan has reputation for mislabeling products, including those from Fukushima. Happened a few times just right after the disaster and it happened locally.

Dear Japan, nobody cares about your (fake) Fukushima feelings. Americans have their own food. Yet, we don't see you accusing them of hurting your Fukushima feelings or anything. Grow up!

Buahahaha. They got what they deserved. Have they used regular clothing they'd have gone unnoticed. But nope. Had to use their team uniforms. Morons.

Whenever I'm a bit stressed I go swimming laps and I come out new. But since the pandemic started I haven't touched a pool and clean beaches are so far.

Well, I hate to admit it but he's right. The 4 thousand something infections are local not connected to the games.

Posted in: Sony announces ZV-E10 mirrorless camera See in context

Not interchangeable lens? Design isn't good like Olympus and Fuji.

The camera has an E-mount where you can attach hundreds of lenses.

Olympus and Fuji are brands names. The design on the ZV-E10 might depend on which camera you're comparing it to (OM-D E-M1X, Pen-F, etc.)

Do vaccinated people need to go back to masking?

Is your body organic? If the answer is "yes" then it means you can still carry and spread the virus.

Posted in: Mother arrested after 1-year-old daughter, left in car, dies of heatstroke See in context

Too many stones thrown against this woman. The article says 30 minutes but it could have been 20 (or 40). She didn't forget the kid while going to play pachinko, went shopping or sleeping for three hours. She was upstairs taking care of the other kid.

It may not have been a great idea, as it turned out but it was an unfortunate accident.

Maybe there should be a law in Japan like the one letsberealistic mentioned that would help prevent parents from leaving infants alone in cars.

Why not put a sign outside your door saying "door's open, dozo." Or just leave the keys hanging on the door. The amazon delivery driver won't be that much more honest than your porch thieves. They're just as muricans.

Posted in: Little cheer in Tokyo for Olympics See in context

We're kind of busy with Corona and lose of jobs, taxes are probably gonna go up next year and now they want us to stop drinking too (while the same politicians keep on partying). I really couldn't care any less about some corrupted games that are about money and politics. I'm sure many more feel the same.

Why not buying underwear at a store and then wank at home with some good old fashioned internet porn? He went through a lot for stealing those undies. Hope he doesn't just get slap on the wrist.

Posted in: In Trump's Jan 6 recast, attackers become martyrs, heroes See in context

The BLM protestors were protesting for BLM. The rioters were almost all right-wing subversive groups trying to make BLM look bad 

Mmm, actually no. The rioters were black people looting Foot Lockers for the latest Jordan, Wal-Mart, Target and even Apple stores. Just as they're doing now in summer 2021. I doubt any of those people looting care about the left or the right. They're thieves who would use whatever opportunity those lost in politics give them, and the big majority happen to be black.

He should be deported immediately and the people that were harboring him should be investigated.

How come? He never committed any crime.

People just wanna complain about stuff, all the freaking time. The beds were planned this way pre-pandemic so they could be recycled. For you know, life after the Olympics.

Posted in: S Korea removes banners at Olympic village after IOC ruling See in context

It has been mentioned before but South Korea's objection to the Rising Sun flag is a relatively recent phenomenon. Japan had flown that Rising Sun flag decades before including during a naval review and South Korea had no problems with it then.

I think this is in part due to the age of the internet and later generations (millennials and zoomers) being more sensitive than previous ones (gen X and boomers).

Posted in: S Korea removes banners at Olympic village after IOC ruling See in context


Koreans really really don't want any Japanese help. 

Is that why Korea started the whole boycott against everything Japan in 2019 for being taken out of Japan's white list of trusted partners?

You may say Koreans don't want any help from Japan. But as seen from all that baby crying on that year, Koreans may not want Japan's help but needs it.

The Korean team bringing should have just stayed home if they were gonna bring all this hate and politics with them. Just as muricans can't bring their hate infused BLM banners, so everyone else should leave their politics at home.

I disagree, the views of science is only accepted by left

Oh boy, here we go again. Talking about natural disasters but some people always need to turn this into politics. Like my dad who's a hardcore religious guy who needs to explain absolutely everything with "but the bible says yada yada."

Posted in: Kono says local gov'ts need to slow down vaccinations due to supply crunch See in context

What would be the point of slowing it down, when what you want is to have as many people vaccinated as possible? Is there a logical reason behind it or is it just to save face by saying "we're vaccinating people everyday."

Posted in: Kono says local gov'ts need to slow down vaccinations due to supply crunch See in context

Why are posters keep saying that we shouldn’t send vaccines to other nations? We are only sending Astra

Because they're haters and need to bash Japan in whichever way they can.

Posted in: Sean Penn says Trump 'machine-gunned the vulnerable' during COVID See in context

Guys like this one keep on blaming politicians, in this case Trump and his crew. But keep on failing to recognize the true responsible party or individual for what happened then, the guy in the mirror.

True that Trump was by far not the best leader of a nation ever during the pandemic. Greatly downplayed the virus, blamed other Europe and China for what was clearly USA's fault, talked crazy like let's inject disinfectant into the body.

But that's all one guy. President but still just one guy. The real and true responsible parties for what happened last year were white boys marching true the streets of US with a bazooka and big guns. Those crying out loud "my body, my choice." Religious leaders who couldn't put their services aside cause "we serve God." Black Lives Matter demonstrations were another, if not the biggest guilty parties when it comes to spreading the virus (and hate). Like all of a sudden they all forgot about Covid. Far left activists taking control of police stations and letting anarchy taking over. Increased racism across the nation. Etc.

I honestly don't think they were trying to discriminate against one side or the other. And that they really didn't think it through and ended up looking like idiots.

Didn't Suga say a few times that Tokyo Olympics 2020 (in 2021) were gonna be a symbol of humanity being triumphant over the virus? True everyone knew those were just politician words. Still, that's another slap on his face.

Quasi or full SoE, doesn't really matter. Last order was already at 19:00 or 19:30 so no different at all. And if restaurants and bars wanted to ignore the full of quasi SoE, dance clubs are still open till 6 in the morning so... Yeah, that's that.
