Fighto

No, the posters like a “breath of fresh air”, meaning athletes sticking to tennis instead of using social justice politics to shine a light on themselves.

Athletes are humans first. There is nothing wrong being aware of social injustice and raising one's voice in the present day. Some prefer to remain indifferent but others love to get involved. What's wrong with that?

That's how medical research generally works.

I wonder how many of you experts have actually played a professional level game and experienced the pressure to be judging others. Losers.

To those who seem so worried about future generation kids: whether you like it or not, the world is competitive than what it was in previous generation. We have more debts than what our parents had. We seem to be doing alright. The next generation will learn to adapt. Our job is to educate them so that they will be prepared to survive in a tougher world.

For God's sake, have you ever thought of the countries where millions of people have no access to vaccines whatsoever?

Yes, in Japan, about 100 million people have no access to vaccines whatsoever. What's your point?

Get a wider perspective of the world. You will be thankful that you are in Japan.

Numbers are going down and vaccines are finally happening.

Are we talking about Japan here? Or another country where 40% of the population is vaccinated, which is needed to have an affect?

For God's sake, have you ever thought of the countries where millions of people have no access to vaccines whatsoever?

It is strange that nobody believes the Japanese government statistics, but they believe without doubt the statistics of Taiwan, Australia, and every other country.

Exactly! How could people be so naïve!

Posted in: Japan's wagyu beef looks to conquer the world See in context

I don't know where they get this information from. They've had wagyu beef cattle in Australia for decades, but it's very unpopular. In fact, 90% of it is exported, most back to Japan. To me, it is the most overrated, overpriced and tasteless beef there is.

And your source of information?
