Many Brits keep their central heating on 24/7 and wear t-shirts indoors.

You know this how? Checked them all have you?

Those who can afford it may do that but those who can't afford to eat won't be sitting at home wearing T shirts with the central heating on 24 hrs a day.

A sad loss. I've seen The Ventures live here 4 times, the last being about 4 years ago, maybe 5.

 With over 100 million records sold, the Ventures are the best-selling instrumental band of all time.

That says it all.

Japan Today, if you are going to run an article like this I think it’s a good thing to mention at the end of the piece where people can get help/counselling etc.

To be fair to JT they usually do, perhaps it will be added? Please.

Reason I still refuse to buy wireless earphones.

Interesting comment. Wireless earphones only receive, they don't transmit. Do you use a mobile or any kind of cordless 'phone?

How would you truthfully and accurately describe a man born in Lancashire in England ?

Unlucky, by those of us from the other side of the Pennines, but seriously, a correct description would be "a British man of Pakistani descent", something which most people guessed at before the information was published.

Anyone who has ever handled a weapon knows the difference between a live and blank round. It’s a pathetic excuse from someone who only had one job to do.

nandakandamandaToday  09:56 am JST

Since dummy rounds can be spotted during loading in live action on camera, there is a special dummy round that looks externally like a live round, apparently.

Generally speaking, a live round has a bullet in one end of the casing and a blank does not, the ends of the blank casing are crimped so it only goes "bang" when fired and ejects only some sparks and small debris. the difference in appearance and weight is very easy to see/feel.

A dummy round however looks just like a live round in that it has a bullet in one end of the casing but contains no, let's call it "explosive", so it cannot be fired. The weight difference between the two is very small and pretty much impossible to detect by hand.


"The lawsuit adds new details to the chain of custody for guns and ammunition on the “Rust” set on Oct 21, describing the appearance of a new box of ammunition — presumed to be harmless dummy rounds with no explosive — shortly before a revolver was loaded and passed to Baldwin."

He said that "said he wanted to address “continuing misinformation” in the interest of ”alleviating broader concern in the community about my presence in Australia.” However the failed to mention that he had travelled to Spain and Serbia when asked if he had travelled in the previous 14 days and then tried to pass it off as an "administrative mistake". Total lack of credibility and lying on an immigration form surely has to be an offence? Seems he is incapable of filling out a form for himself and needs a "support team".

OTOH, I'd think that any Olympians would be in shuttle buses, not personal vehicles.

Article doesn't mention personal vehicles, buses are vehicles too.

"In case of traffic accidents with special vehicles for the Winter Olympics, please pay attention to maintaining a safe distance," Beijing's Traffic Management Bureau said in a post on the Twitter-like Weibo. "Do not make contact with vehicles or personnel in them and wait for professionals to arrive at the scene."

The system includes dedicated transport between venues, ...........

We can use them to spy on US bases

You do know that every US base in Japan has hundreds, if not thousands, of Japanese citizens working on them, full time, some in command headquarters positions, right? Not to mention that many US bases in Japan are actually jointly operated with SDF units.......

So using a billion yen drone to "spy" on US bases that are normally, (outside current COVID restrictions), open to the Japanese public with very little restriction, seems a bit overkill, (pun intended).

Recognising sarcasm seems not to be your greatest skill.

The couple briefly stopped to scream profanities at a counter-protester, according to prosecutors.

She came “to peacefully protest what she believed at that time to be a fraudulent election.”

“felt she was embarking on a noble endeavor as a representative of the citizenry."
