I was on a cruiser with over 400 people, if you have ever had the chance to tour a warship you'll fully understand what close quarters means. Refusing the vaccine in those conditions warrants discharge. The carrier pictured above probably has a crew of over 6,500. It's really just common sense.

Health care workers should not be in that profession if they don't care about their patients protection from deadly disease.

That's basically all that needs to be said.

So for Bass, Wolfpack, Nomination and Blacklabel

We should have stayed, added more troops and possibly continue the war?

With all of you guys posts, surely you have a perfect mass military evac plan. No need to talk about presidents, politics far right/left this n that. Just what you would have done.

Bass,

Like, for real. What are you even trying to say?

So we should have stayed until every single person was evacuated, overstay the deadline and have Taliban start attacking (and ISIS continue attacking) a limited military force? Would that give your 84% good feelings?

When the attacks start, wonder what happens next. More troops deployed to protect the prolonged evacuation. maybe more troops die. war again?

How can they actually enforce this?

Posted in: Police officer fatally shoots man threatening him with saw See in context

Lol, I see there are a few elite black ops sharpshooters around. Also, shooting limbs can lead to death (bleeding out, especially from upper shots) and amputations.

A 30cm saw saw blade can be swung pretty easily and being that it's a saw, would be more than a "scratch".

The other cop gave a warning shot. I see no fault in the cops.

As others have pointed out though, why don't they have tasers?

Bob, I'm guessing you are a guy. Dogging a women's soccer team which has won women's world cups and women's Olympic soccer.

Wolfpack & Bob,

Just how far are you guys willing to drop to discredit a "women's" soccer team? Ok maybe you don't agree with their protests against racism and equal pay. But.....wait those are the things ur mad about?

Also,

"biological males shouldn't participate in women's sports"

"Boys soccer team beats women's soccer team"

I'm American, but after the team took a knee during the national anthem, I'm glad Canada won (Geaux Canada)!!!!

They took a knee AFTER the anthem for about 10 seconds. You'll be fine

Anyway, was a pretty physical game, I was kinda looking forward to a USA / Japan rematch but its good to see some new teams this year.

Isn't it discriminatory to assume that Italians can't run as fast as other nationalities?

Of course not, Italy has dominated the men's 100m for decades, no reason anyone would be surprised.

What relevance does that have to ones who don't want to play in bikini bottoms and aren't allowed?

They've had a choice to wear shorts since 2012.

I really liked Attack on Titan season 1 (it's labeled in weird parts on Netflix) but it just seemed to slow down for me after that.

I'm really waiting for One Punch Man to return, seemed like not many people were happy about the 2nd season but I thought it was fun to watch.

Flute,

@iradickle

I have stated (more than once) that there has been a choice since 2012.

And ?

I am not the one trying to justify no choice for women (in the sports concerned) or different exigence in term of length, fitness, ... for women than for men.

I'll say it once again for the people in the nosebleeds seats.

THEY HAVE A CHOICE!

You sound like the guys I once met that claim they watch lingerie football for the sport.

So, what do you think of the women who play lingerie football?

strangerland,

Wait, are you serious?

But some men think there is some sort of moral justification in forcing these women to be nearly naked.

I explain that they can wear shorts then give you an article with two women who play beach volleyball on why they prefer to play in bikini bottoms and tops.

You

So? What is the relevance?

Just.... Wow.

Here is an article from two women who actually play the sport. They also give their reasons for not wearing shorts.

*The shorts must “be a close fit and the design is recommended to feature total length of 26-28cm (from waistband) and *26cm above the knee.

Also, selective reading is quite selective. Must and recommended are quite different.

It's amazing how many guys in here think that women should be required to be practically naked in order to participate in the sport. These women want to win. They are the most elite of the elite in their sport. And even at that, they still want to cover up somewhat.

Good god, here are the official regulations for gymnastics. Full length bodysuits are NOT against Olympic rules.

baggy bikini bottoms would suck playing in the sand.

Oh but the men's shirt are just fine?

Ok the let the women chose similar shorts as the men.

Incredible the excuses you guys come up with.

They have had a choice to wear shorts since 2012!!

.Again a little research (or better journalism) and people would know this has been going on long before this Olympics and most in the sport knew long in advance this team was going to do this.

It was no surprise.

I was referring to the gymnastics team. Beach handball is not in the Olympics.

As for beach volleyball, they've had the choice since 2012.

Give one GOOD reason why the women shouldn't have a choice of shorts and sports top?

I am waiting.

Not to sound like a jerk, but I'm pretty sure that the women knew that the rule was for bikini bottoms, again beach - bikini bottoms isn't that absurd. If they were against that, they had a few years to make their concerns known to the IOC. If it was such the abomination that people who are not playing in the event have made it out to be they could have gotten the rule changed. Also, it wasn't that nice for one team to cover themselves up and NOT let any other female athletes know they were "starting a movement"

Beach volleyball, beach handball....... in bikini bottoms!? the two things have nothing to do with each other. Long spandex pants and rash guards for all! In 34 degree plus humid weather.

Do you really believe that "incels" are counting down the days for the next Olympics so they can FINALLY see a woman in a "revealing" outfit?

Either way, If the people actually competing have a problem with the attire they should be able to change it.

“Sport appeal, not sex appeal” is one mantra Olympic officials push in an effort to reach gender equity on the field of play and on screen.

Tell that to "oiled up Toga guy"

"It really annoys me to see how young women are often seen in Japanese animation -- treated as sacred -- which has nothing to do with the reality of who they are," Hosoda said, with evident frustration.

So a shy country girl and her computer nerd female friend getting millions of followers in a virtual world. Apparently the "beast" wants to destroy this world but he's hiding something, I can't for the life of me imagine how this could possibly turn out.........
