Good call!

"Walk softly, but carry a big stick."

Basically just that Joe, these days people love to go off the rails on basic common sense.

Posted in: 'Call of Duty' latest battle is between Microsoft and Sony See in context

When companies do things like this, it's the gamers that get a bad deal. As far as Call of Duty, Sony has done it's fair share of exclusivity for like the past 5 years.

However, I'm getting to the age that I wont be able to keep up with these kids ramped up on Cheetos & energy drinks for much longer. This might be my last COD.

I don't mind a McBurger every now and again, especially some of the limited burgers. Still have a soft spot for Burger King though. Have found a few amazing self-owned Japanese burger shops that surprised me.

Posted in: Mayweather easily beats MMA fighter Asakura in Japan exhibition See in context

Japan would do well to lead the pack, rather than being a tame follower like all the rest.

I don't know if Japan will do away with karate, judo, aikido, kendo and sumo.

Every fighter knows the risks and as long as there's billions to be made from it, it's not going away anytime soon.

I'm not to happy, I don't really deal with dollars much, except for Playstation games and online passes (digital codes from Amazon US). Was casually checking today and saw ¥9,980 for a $70 game....wanted to cry.

Of course not. But it's because I'm a level 50 Paladin with an Ancient Orcslayer Dagger.

Why did that make me laugh so hard?

Might check out Black Adam after I see a few more trailers.

Kids from an early age play video games that depict Killing with all it's gore as just something that is normal

Not to be a jerk or anything but the "video game" thing is usually so far beyond reality it's pretty much impossible to relate to real life. You can shoot as many zombies as you want in the head and still be shocked to see an actual person shot in front of you.

The first season was pretty good, 2nd wasn't, don't actually remember the 3rd season. 4th (so far) I'm only really interested in Hopper in Russia, but hey milk it till its powder right?

Maybe they should go after actual IRL bullying first, as is endemic in schools and workplaces.

Nah, cause the internet is not Japan, Japan doesn't have those problems, *wink

Posted in: BTS rekindle debate about military service in South Korea See in context

"BTS has done a job that would take more than 1,000 diplomats to do," he said.

I don't know why, but that sounds pretty sad to me.

But either way, I think it would be better for them to all serve their 2 years together, would be a great show of love to their country.

Posted in: App developed to automatically delete children's nude selfies See in context

I mean, yeah it's an idea but there are already workarounds for pretty much every parental monitoring app out there (Google Family link is still pretty good).

Also, if you take a picture through an app (twitter, line, etc.) you can share it pretty much instantly.

They have commercials, tv spots and even citywide PA announcements about people scamming the elderly. Why not actually shine some light on the dangers instead.

LOL, you know I was thinking the same thing.

Wow. A word in a language Lewis doesn't speak, used in a podcast, with no attempt to understand from a culture perspective, is deemed racist…

Sooo, it's not a racist comment because it's in a different language?

Desert Tortoise,

Yeah, but very different region and the depth was only 6-10km. The Tohoku quake was 8.9m but like 30km deep. Also the building pictured above probably doesn't have the same building codes as Japan.

Posted in: Osaka court rules same-sex marriage ban not unconstitutional See in context

I really don't like the "everyone" should be able to marry who they love thinking.

30yo man and 15yo girl are in love - let'em marry!

Woman loves 2 men - 2 for 1 discount marriage package!

While I support the ban, NO ONE (supporters or not) has offered ANY kind of compromise.

For example, A legal certificate with could deal with legal and medical issues between them.

I just think that there are too many things in "traditional" marriage that same-sex couples are just not fit for.

Posted in: U.S. naval officer in Japan faces prison over deadly crash See in context

While this is a tragic accident, the man passed out with his wife and kids in the car, basically it was a medical emergency or they just like to run people over as a family. Also after a 1.6 million dollar "restitution" his sentenced should have been suspended.

He later testified to feeling sudden mountain sickness — a finding supported by a neurologist's June 2021 diagnosis — but the judge said such a sensation should have abated as Alkonis drove down the mountain.

Didn't know judges knew more than neurologists.

So we need to protect the abortion seekers and not the lost innocent lives. I see.

Left-wing prosecutors who swear to uphold the laws of the state wouldn't prosecute women breaking the law?

Gave absolutely zero thought to rape and incest victims huh?

Oh, and they'll probably need government assistance too right?

Then the "MY TAX DOLLARS" rants.

Posted in: Why isn’t Japan as tech savvy as it should be? See in context

People I talk to back home always say things like "You're living in the year 3000 over there" it makes me laugh looking at the average Japanese homepage, the sounds of the 2 fax machines in the office, 1GB Wi-Fi but no hardware in the PCs that support it. Practical thinking and application are just not in the cards here, and any suggestions that go up the ladder ends with an oyaji with a flip phone and a pager or something. I think a lot (ton) of it comes from them being spoon fed what to do, say, study for most of their lives. Haven't really had any chance to stretch those brain muscles.

Yeah, I stay for those bloopers that are playing while the credits are rolling on the other side.

Work schedules, exams, due-date on taxes, rents, and bills are never canceled, for most any reason.

Probably cause those things actually matter.

Also, if anyone who hasn't actually been to those fireworks, just google some pictures.

FFS, bars are open, events are taking place, basically life is normal.
