There is no luck or skill in in crane games, there is a setting to give a winning (forceful) grab every X tries. I learnt this by going to the amusement convention at Tokyo Big site a few years ago and they showed me how to calculate your profit based on the setting. It's not illegal, because there is still a "chance"... just not widely known.

2500 tests is ridiculous for Japan's population.... are they contact tracing and understanding where new infections are coming from or have we given up because it's all too hard?

Because most universities only have one PhD intake a year which has a selection progress and then they only take about 5-10 students

Posted in: Trump says he has recovered from COVID-19; heads to Florida on Monday See in context

They need to come clean, he recovered too quickly, seems like they were not regularly testing Trump and he was infected way before tweeting about it. I think he infected everyone personally as he is the king of no masks.

Schooling is expensive if you take into account to do any good you need to do juku, which is super expensive. If the government made schools 100% free and increased the quality so juku was not required you would have more kids.

You would think they would be better trained? I really think any accident no matter how small needs to be investigated!

Consider no one from Tepco was jailed or even fired makes that a pipe dream.

Posted in: Japan to reopen borders for all foreign visitors with permits to stay in country See in context

@nihonview: Australians can return no problems, airlines are cancelling flights and flying planes with only business class passengers and blaming Australian policy to why they cancelled. It's the airlines not Australian borders that are stopping them from coming come. Got $15,000 then no problems coming back. Yes it is still crap.

After arrival, they have to stay in self-isolation for 14 days and avoid using public transportation during the period

If you are in self isolation why do they assume you are outside to take any sort of transport?

80,000 people died of the flu in 2017, millions were sickened. Do you remember reading any news headlines about this story?

Totally preventable, there is a yearly vaccine for the flu. Trump killed 200K+ additional Americans because he wanted to get reelected. Blood is on his hands.

Trump wants a war I guess, he is the worst person for the job he is in. He has no understanding of the common man and everything is about him... in his mind, it's not America first... he thinks everything is a competition of who is better.
