Nothing is more cringe than adult men complaining about “woke”.

Posted in: Golden Week holidays start amid post-COVID tourism boom, weak yen See in context

Only the very wealthy with a lot of time on their hands can afford trips to Africa.

That is totally fine, but to call a Zoo a “Night Safari” out of context in a news article is confusing.

Sort of like saying “I am going to India” when in reality you are going to an Indian restaurant.

Posted in: Ohtani passes Hideki Matsui for most MLB homers by a Japanese-born player See in context

What MLB records is he going to break?

He has already broken Babe Ruth’s achievement long thought unbeatable: Most strikeouts by a player with at least 100 home runs.

According to other news reports the man suffered from Schizophrenia and Type 1 Diabetes.

Truly shameful treatment of a human being in medical distress.

Posted in: Japan plans legal revision for quicker deletion of defamatory posts See in context

Any allegation that harms another person's reputation, whether it is true or not, is defamation.

Only in Japan. In the west in order to “defame” someone, the allegation must be false.

In western English anyone 19 years or younger can be referred to as a “youth” regardless of their legal status as an adult.

Posted in: Police say 13-year-old girl has admitted killing mother See in context

There is no modern country that holds 8 year olds criminally liable. That’s just not rational.

The USA is a global outlier, with 24 states having no age limit on criminal responsibility.

Posted in: Over 100,000 foreign visitors came to Japan in July for 4th month in row See in context

I recently got married in Canada — my wife and 8 would have loved to return to Japan for our honeymoon. Instead we spent our 20k budget traveling all around Europe, mask free, with ease, and without spreading or contracting Covid.

Posted in: 14-year-old girl arrested after throwing shopping cart from roof of Osaka store See in context

Give her at least a few days in jail to teach her a lesson. Otherwise she won't learn.

Oh, is that what Japan is giving out for attempted murder these days? With an Orwellian %99 conviction rate, this minors life is about to be ruined for a childish mistake who’s only victim was a broken shopping cart and a bit of chipped sidewalk.

Even an egg thrown at that height could lead to fatal injuries let alone a 8 kg shopping card made of metal.

Sounds like you need a physics lesson.

Posted in: Will Smith plays Venus and Serena's 'lion' in Oscar-tipped 'King Richard' See in context

Serena Williams is a sore loser and a terrible sport. No respect. I'll still see the movie just because Will Smith is impossible to hate.

She is a ferocious competitor and one of the greatest athletes of all time. How do you stack up?

Posted in: Alanis Morissette blasts documentary 'Jagged' as 'salacious' See in context

She went to my high school here in Ottawa, a couple years ahead. We had to listen to her rendition of “Oh Canada” every morning, a truly terrible experience.

Posted in: Osaka immigration footage shows mistreatment of detained foreigner See in context

Every person on here sayin “he was only handcuffed for 10 hours, that’s not that bad” have clearly never spent even 10 minutes cuffed. It is painful and excruciating. I can not imagine how awful 10 hours would be.

Posted in: Human rights groups around the world are urging the International Olympic Committee to rescind its decision to hold the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing and that countries boycott the Games over China's human rights violations of more than a million Uyghur Muslims. Do you support such a call? See in context

I see the daily anti China propaganda is working.... Except in Muslim countries who know that Uyghur "problem" is a western fabrication. The west cares deeply about Muslims in China but not those in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine...... 

Can't compete economically using YOUR rules..... Sad!

This statement holds no water — the West is allied with dozens of Muslim majority countries.

Posted in: OnlyFans reverses sexually explicit content ban See in context

GW — you make an argument based totally outside of reality. Nobody posting explicit content on onlyfans is concerned about loosing their day job.

I am a firm believer that anyone who uses “simp” in an argument deserves immediate disqualification. SMH

Posted in: Why do English-speaking people write RIP when they read about someone's death? Is it a religious or cultural tradition? See in context

It may have religious roots, but is definitely now colloquial slang. It is the least formal, least personal condolence you could possibly offer.

Like if you finish a juice box really quick you might say “RIP juice box.”

Posted in: Do you think employers should have the right to require workers returning to their offices to be vaccinated against the coronavirus? See in context

Your employer has no right about what to put inside your body.

Of course they do:

-You can’t be drunk at work (you would be a danger to yourself and others, just like covid)

-You must be clean and showered at work (basic hygiene, just like the jab)

Posted in: Do you think employers should have the right to require workers returning to their offices to be vaccinated against the coronavirus? See in context

Don’t want to wear a seatbelt? Ride a bike.

Don't want to get the jab? Work from home.

Nobody is saying you have to get the vaccination — but being part of society is abiding by social contracts.

A ridiculous decision— now every time some nut bag disagrees with anything they can just threaten to bomb it and then wait for the government to shut it down.

Oh I get it, because some diabetic or pregnant women can't get the vaccine, it won't be fair! What a load of BS!

I am a type 1 diabetic and am fully vaccinated. My sister is 6 months pregnant and is also fully vaccinated. What is your point here?

Posted in: Australians trapped in vaccine 'Hunger Games,' says top official See in context

It is truly disheartening to see that Australian and Canada turn out to be the places with the worst authoritarian overreach. Just the place one would have hoped would avoid that. Sad all around.

Living in Canada now — what on earth are you talking about? There was a public health crisis here and we dealt with it as a society to save lives. We are now on our way to a fully vaxxed nation. Canadians listened to science and did what needed to be done.
