Posted in: Unmarked police cars in Japan use Transformer-style trick when they pull someone over See in context

One of my Japanese friend during his young days bought those fake blinking/waring lights from DIY store (inspired by some Hollywood movies) in order to pretend himself as one of these undercover cops. So he started showing those lights to random cars at national highway until he met one of these undercover cops. Yup he tried to pull one of the undercover cars.

@Bungle: he said it was because I only put one foot on the ground instead of both!

No wonder I see people riding weirdly on scooters with both legs hanging, almost touching grounds :D

Posted in: 300 hotel rooms planned for Olympic athletes with minor or no COVID symptoms See in context

I think Olympic will go ahead no matter what, because organizers have already used most of those sponsor's funding. Just think about those broadcasting rights, ad rights which will be difficult to return as in case of Olympic tickets refund. But J-govt is really playing a dangerous game here, without proper/precise instructions, confused authorities, confused volunteers, confused audiences it gonna be chaos and laughing stock for foreign media. Japan was first country to witness "corona-infection" after China in that cruise ship yet haven't learn anything. I'm getting a picture on those towers... Oh you have mild symptom follow this yellow line. You are negative follow green line. White line for no-results yet group. Red and orange... take the elevator.

Posted in: China pushes to expand virus origin search to other countries See in context

Okay here's a simple logic based on Covid-19 as a "natural virus". Lets assume its natural and originated from bats somewhere in Asia. Well China is the first country (Wuhan is the first city) to get infected with this virus, means the intermediator/ vector (natural) was/is in China. OR the virus is very country specific like J-strain which is only activated after 8:00 pm.

Osaka’s public prosecutors say they plan to throw the book at the four YouTubers.

Stupid youtubers, still they haven't used it, neither they "paid" for it. They just triggered the whole thing yet there was no deal occurred? There's no need to show that much anger unless it was your own undercover agent Mr prosecutors.

Posted in: Japan to extend state of emergency for 2 weeks in Tokyo area See in context

I use to think what an absurd idea? viruses activates only at night? But if you move around Osaka and Tokyo train stations or any metropolitans you would realized how small are those noisy oyajiis standing bars. Talking, laughing, drinking with all the mouth open wide, sharing food etc. Shortening hours means no more drinking after 7. No more drinking in groups. No more places to wandering around night. Once we get off from work at 6:00 (bling bling! if we do) There's no place to hang around as used to be. This might not be 100% effective but somehow brings down the number of clusters. Remember most of the clusters are either hospitals itself or bar and clubs. So implementing short business hours cuts down the latter. Forget drinking, even eat-in is not possible in such short hours.

Drinking after work is somehow became Japanese corporate culture and it will be very difficult to go against it. But I am in full support to minimize those cluster routes. However, I 'm still trying to find the logic behind the great GoToEat and GotoTravel campaign though LOL!

Posted in: Japan likely to extend COVID-19 state of emergency See in context

Its USELESS until done simultaneously in all prefectures. Also, instead of extending emergency just shutdown everything (*exceptions food/medicine) for 3 weeks. Will save lot of meetings, money and embarrassments.

Most of these institute have their own servers / email servers. Researchers must communicate (mandatory) through provided email address. Once you leave these institute all of your correspondence goes with it. Not a user friendly and primitive UI it looks really hackable.

Posted in: Japan to release treated Fukushima water into sea, media report See in context

The release of the water, which has been filtered to reduce radioactivity,...

Most of the radioactive isotopes have been removed by an extensive filtration process -- but one remains, called tritium, which cannot be removed with existing technology.

filtered and most probably 1000X diluted who knows...

A government panel said earlier this year that releasing the water into the sea or evaporating it were both "realistic options".

NAH!!! "option A" to hide all those incapability.

Nice idea, drunk people will have hard time though lol !

Even without a pandemic, the natural environment contains several hundreds of thousands of microbes per cubic meter

1) Thousands of course but the concentration is still low compared uncleaned palm. 2) Uncleaned palms will mostly carry mouth bacteria and human viruses whereas air will carry all types of microbes which might be unharmful to humans (depends on surroundings).
