Posted in: Japan to test anti-virus measures for big events at near-full stadium See in context

Perhaps you could fill an open-roof stadium to 80% capacity, with everyone wearing masks and being really careful. But this is cool October climate - in the hottest days of the year the olympics will have people pulling thier masks off to to drink water, avoid heat stroke, to breath that lovely humid Tokyo 'air' And even then with 20,000+ people crowded together in larger groups outside the stadium, getting food, on public transport ... it's there where Covid can be spread easily. They are so desperate to hold the damn olympics though, it's beyond belief, but then 2020 has proved insanity has no limit.

Incredulious to blame governments when its each persons own responsibilty to keep social distance, keep contacts low, not do unesseccary travel, wear mask , wash hands etc... but some people just couldnt care less and went to party, holiday and indulge themselves. Then they blame each other. Humans being humans.

No wonder people distrust governments and make up their own story. This is no better than China saying no community transnmission since August (all cases, a tiny number like 10 or 20 each day, were 'imported')

Drivers in Japan might be able to park their car to a few cm of a wall, but once the speedo goes over 2km/h, they are pretty careless - especiall oyaji's over 50 who don't want to live anymore.

Not the same ring as " boldly go where no one has gone before", true. So I assume they'll stick with what works.

'one' is a binary number

Don't they do this kind of stunt when they want media attention away from gov negligence? Already 2 articles today around same topic of drugs. Plus they were very likely tipped off by someone, the key stones couldn't solve a 5x5 crossword puzzle.

For those who are so ignorant with prioritizing the 'economy' over people lives. Do you see the article below this one on the fron page?

Millions return to lockdown in Philippines as virus cases soar

Look at Melbourne, look at USA, look at UK. But you can't look, you are blinded by money. Enjoy your Economy when there isn't anyone to sell your tat to.

I'm in Tokyo and in 1 day last week I saw 3 caucasian guys on 3 seperate occassions not wearing a mask. That was in and around Yamanote Ueno / Shimbashi areas. Can see how people get the impression they are careless.

Posted in: Gov't decision to scrap advisory coronavirus panel draws flak See in context

What 'economy' will there be when everyone is sick and close to death? Perhaps funeral parlous will be all we will have in that goal of 'economy' This isn't just here, its most of the world governments who are putting $$$ first and foremost. For the sake of strict global lockdown in the first 2-3 months, we now suffer for the next 1, 2 or more years.

Not only the crowds, the ignorance but 40 tonnes of rubbish left by them AND they were assaulting staff trying to clean up THEIR mess. Security was called to protect the workers. Animals have more cleanliness than those savages.

The 'temperature' you see in the media is always 2c or so LESS than the real temperature, especially in 'downtown' also its goes up 5+c in the direct sun. Here in the inner 23-ku my weather station recorded 33.8c. Regardless of mask wearing, take care of yourself and your younger / older ones as we endure next 3 months of hot weather (although Thursday could give a brief respite with thundery showers and

Posted in: Gov't to launch probe into murky virus relief deal linked to Dentsu See in context

This.. this is just incredible, yet completely normal here -

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and... contracted a group.... to implement the program for 76.9 billion yen, only for the group to subcontract the task to the advertising agency for 74.9 billion yen

And the 'advertising agency' will sub-sub contract ... how do we apply for some of this state-aid? Oh, you need to be a member of a certain select group.

How easy it is to fool people. The photo is tele-photo to give the impression of people right next to each other. Being outside, more than 1.5m apart and wearing masks, not in strangers faces. They are doing nothing wrong. But so many have been brainwashed so its sadly a lost cause to point such things out.

Its beyond belief at this point. The Olympics should be cancelled for good, from right now. Its become nothing but a corrupt, cartel driven sham. There are World Championships for all major sports (including BMX and surfing) those have some integrity, at least.
