I guess we can only hope that oil is used up before the climate in which humans can survive is destroyed.

Yeah, I've seen couples at restaurants who spend the entire time staring into their phones. And we wonder why the birthrate is falling.

I remember seeing that program when I was studied abroad in the US in the late 1990s. I liked the sense of humor expressed in the show.

I like it. If I'm ever accused of a crime I did not commit, all this data will show that I was not at the crime scene. I'll be proven innocent.

I grew up here in Shinjuku in one of those old neighborhoods, with 2 story houses and mom and pop shops. I knew everyone since I was a little kid, and we kids grew up together. That neighborhood was all torn down and replaced by 25 floor condos. OK, they put me in one as a condition for buying my property about 15 years ago, but I still don't know anybody. The old times were great.

Posted in: Okinawa pub posts 'Japanese only' admission sign based on some shaky logic See in context

About a two decades ago, lots of bars in Shinjuku Ni-chome area (Tokyo's gay town) suddenly attached "Japanese only" signs to their doors. A few months later the signs were all gone because it was realized that the signs would mean "Japanese people only", but what was meant was "Japanese language only".

When foreign friends of mine saw signs like this, they say that it is a nice warning that the people in the place are not people that they want to meet. So they just walk on.

I'm really glad that there is a ban on handguns in Japan. Rifles are also basically outlawed, but farmers, for example, in remote areas can get them because they may be attacked by bears or wild boars.

Now it is the boys that will be hurt again, by not being able to perform and make a living. I don't like the boys being harmed like this. Maybe I'll drop NHK.

Just a detail, but I would translate 渋谷センター街 as "Shibuya Center Street" rather than "Shibuya Center-gai". I don't think that "gai" would be understood.

Posted in: WTO warns of 'first signs' of trade deglobalization See in context

Deglobalization started with Trump. He lost confidence in the ability of the USA to compete globally, especially against China. The aim of deglobalization was to build up the US economy. Trump didn't realize that the US didn't have the new technology, or an American workforce trained to use the new technology to compete. The US is falling behind.
