He came here to compete but suddenly he changed his mind. Not a problem. He can go back to where he came from.

Uni student from Uzbekistan? All he needs is a good scholarship for 5 years in the best Japanese jail and then a deportation with honors to his country for his PhD.

Unreasonably light sentence. Any company executive at 72 can make a phone call and have all kinds of services delivered at his home or office. Especially in Shibuya area. No need to kill. Might be a drug addicted old man.

@virusrex

Please let me know why the ''vaccines'' contain magnetized nano particles and graphene oxides.

Do the Russian and Chinese vaccines contain the same ingredients?

Thank you,

Posted in: Ninja dojo opens in Tokyo’s Asakusa, offers courses in shuriken, stealth, and sensory perception See in context

Talking about Ninja schools, in Chiba-Ken, Noda-Shi, near Atago Station, there are two ninja dojos belonging to world known Ninja Hatsumi sensei. Thousands of ninja students from all over the world have studied and are studying the art of ninjutsu there. Most of the students are holders of 3rd or higher dan in other disciplines like Judo, Karate, Aikido, Yaido, etc. The majority of them are professional instructors of special forces in their own countries. Hatsumi sensei must be now 85 years old and he still teaches and supervises the training together with a number of high ranked excellent Japanese Ninja instructors.

It is no the name of the cryptocurrency that is important.

It is the blockchain technology that is going to shape the future.

Posted in: Former illegal manga site operator gets 3 years in jail See in context

When blockchain technology and smart contracts become mainstream, the manga author will have his artistic work as a smart contract on the etherium, or cardano or tron, etc blockchain. The customers will download it directly for a small fee. No big companies to exploit the public, no pirates, no .... Just wait a bit more.

Posted in: Immigration bureau sued for locking up 17 foreigners in small room See in context

I read such articles and my heart bleeds. Sri Lankan woman killed, Nigerian men killed, Japanese immigration cruelty, etc. But why so many foreigners come to Japan?

Why don't they go to Greece? All illegal immigrants are accepted there with few formalities, they are given accommodation with free Wi-Fi and 400 Euros monthly from the European Union for living expenses. Later a number of them finds their way to other European countries. Is there a more friendly country than Greece in this world?

As an avid skier I've always been wondering why those cable cars slide on only a single cable line. What about a double cable line one to move the bloody cable car and the second to support it in the air in case the moving cable breaks? RIP.

Crypto and blockchain technology is the future. Web 3 is going to change everything. What about a new cryptocoin named ICP (The internet computer). It's price today is Yen 15,370. Can you guess it's price in May 24, 2022?

Posted in: Diet begins examining bill to release asylum seekers See in context

Yes, release them and send them to Turkey. From there on they can advance easily, legally or illegally, to Greece. The real paradise of democracy. Thιs paradisaical democracy accepts people (refugees, economic migrants, asylum seekers, criminals, etc.) from all over the world and from every walk of life. All migrants in Greece receive a monthly amount from the EU, free housing, WI-fi and free Greek lessons. There are some covid-19 restrictions though but nowadays this is the norm in every country.

Posted in: British citizen arrested for dumping bento trash in mailbox See in context

The realistic question in this case is: What is better, to throw the plastic bento-box in the street or hide it somewhere?

This otherwise excellent Anglo-Japanese citizen chose the crypto-route. Unfortunately for him, a pair of police eyes witnessed the cryptocrime.

Posted in: About 30 charged for allegedly exchanging stolen cryptocurrency See in context

''Some 58 billion yen worth of digital money NEM was stolen from its operator Coincheck Inc in January 2018. While the Metropolitan Police Department will continue its investigation of the theft, it will soon conclude its probe into those exchanging stolen NEM as it is nearing the statute of limitations.''

The statute of limitations is only 3 years ???

Posted in: 3 women arrested for operating massage parlor offering sex services See in context

A fashion massage parlor never provides sex services.

Only oral works. I remember, former president Clinton said once ''There was not sex just a bj".

If the area is not restricted for such businesses there is no problem whether the operators are Japanese, Chinese or Koreans.

Posted in: 9-year-old boy pushing baby stroller hit and killed by car at intersection See in context

Why drivers don't stop completely at the intersections when the light for the pedestrians is green? I always stop even if no pedestrian is crossing and look very carefully on both sides. Sometimes a speeding bicycle is crossing the moment the left turning driver enters the intersection even at low speed. It should be compulsory for all drivers to stop completely before an intersection when the green light for the pedestrians is on. There is no excuse if a car hits a pedestrian crossing the road with green.

RIP.

Nissan and Renault are two very good motor corporations. They are facing difficulties right now but within a couple of years they will be back on their feet.

As for those who write hateful comments about the former Lebanese CEO they give me the impression that they are just losers.
