Posted in: Trump's vow to only be dictator on 'day one' follows growing worry over his authoritarian rhetoric See in context

In 2016 you had two choose between two villains. First forward to 2024, you've got two similar choices once again, villain or villain.

That third world country keeps falling from the inside out.

Well, Shibuya station is a labyrinth at the moment. Better skip that place and have the party somewhere else.

the bomb was originally developed to use against Germany” is well known in Japan

Mmm, I've met some Japanese people (mostly women) who told me they don't understand why US just dropped the bombs on their land for absolutely no reason, and that Japan never did anything wrong to anyone during the war. I was like like what!?

Posted in: 'Bad buzz': How video games learnt to embrace diversity See in context


You're dang correct in absolutely everything you mentioned on your comment above.

The recent Marvels movie flip flopped and some are saying it did because the movie's main characters are female. But then, like you mentioned, we've had female main laid since forever and people love them. Movies and video games alike.

Posted in: 'Wonka' movie holds remnants of novel's racist past See in context

I never thought about these movies being racist until I read this article.

But with "highlighting his role as her white savior," I still don't see the racism.

Posted in: 'Grand Theft Auto VI' trailer drops, flagging 2025 release See in context

We certainly hope that GTA VI will reflect a more inclusive attitude toward LGBTQ

Please do not include any of that in the game. We don't need it.

And if you do, please do it in a subtle, normal way and not a "pushing it down your throat" like other organizations these last ten years (JT, Bungie, LGBT groups, etc).

Posted in: 'Grand Theft Auto VI' trailer drops, flagging 2025 release See in context

I don't believe it. This will be the same as the Dragon Age 4 and Elder Scrolls 6 trailers. Just a tease and 5+ years of waiting.

Posted in: Half of hospitals see no merit in My Number health insurance cards: survey See in context

Japan always overcomplicating things.

In Korea, with your resident's card which everyone have, people can both use their need med. insurance and get residence related documents. Japan could have done someone similar. Use an already established system and expanded its use.

But nope. Let's create this entirely new and different system that nobody want, give it cringe name, make a cute logo (that rainbow cloud thing) to "make it appealing?" Then keep pushing it when it clearly doesn't look efficient.

The cyclist probably jumped into the road without looking, maybe even looking at her smartphone.

That happened to a jhs student I had. He just jumped into the road on his bike without looking and was impacted an incoming truck. Sadly, he didn't make it.

the cigarette ban would create "an opportunity for a black market to emerge,

I hate cigarettes, their nasty smell and the damage it does. But Luxon is not wrong about that. The moment you can smoking, alcohol and the like, you instantly create a black market.

Posted in: What do you think are some of the major differences between J-pop and K-pop music? See in context

The music, obviously the language. Some good singers in both sides. Psy and Jessi are my favorite ones; loved Namie Amuro.

The idols, Japanese females are... Kimochiwarui, for the most. Always trying to look cute, sometimes sexy but act like ten years old girls. Like they're trying to appeal to pedophiles. Disgusting.

Korean idols on the other side. Grown up sexy women (as plastic as they might be).

Posted in: Eating less meat would be good for the Earth See in context

While I love meat, I do agree less meat consumption is better for the Earth.

But don't start there. Start by reducing portions at restaurants in US and other places where food proportions are too dang big at restaurants. At least from what I've experienced, Americans eat/serve too dang much. Bad for the environment as we would require more to sustain a population. And two, too much obesity in that country and the like, and diabetes.

When saying at hotels in Japan, nothing worse than getting into the facilities and notice the entire place and rooms reek of cigarettes. I rather go through the non traditional experience.

I ignore people whenever they sneeze. Don't think I want to change that. Now I feel it's dumb to tell people "bless you" whenever they sneeze.
