I expect him to open the floodgates for other Japanese sumo wrestlers into College football and the NFL, just like the Polynesians did before. I'm rooting for him.

If Japan wins, we should get the year off, with pay.

For those asking, "Who?" Someone with over 100 million YouTube followers. That's "who". The top dog in a world of wannabes.
As for how long he'll last, he's got enough money and staff to make the normal annoyances of living in Japan less annoying. So no eikaiwa job where you as the teacher ask: "What did you do this weekend?", and the students answer: "I slept and cleaned my room, and slept while cleaning my room".
By the way, while reading about him, I learned the term "weeb". Can anyone tell me if that term is considered offensive?

The gov needs to lift that PCR test at the arrival airport requirement if they plan to allow in tourists. If not, you're bound to have riots on your hands from the visitors stuck at Narita or whichever airport for four or more hours just waiting for their PCR result. And as for that quarantine upon reaching the arrival area...

Lots of commenters calling for more gov support. What kind of "support"?

Why does everyone assume the daughter/classmate was the target of his "affections"?
He and the daughter had been study mates. He had come over to their house before, and her mother had always served both of them tea and sembei. He was smitten, but alas, his love was unrequited. So he flipped out.

Postal worker = deliver mail. If you can't even do that, then what good are you?

Simple solution: if you're unvaccinated, no hospital for you.
You made the choice, then deal with the consequences on your own.

It was a good movie, kind of in that shomin-geki genre. 3 hours passed by like it was 3 minutes.

Don't knock it until you've tried it. If those Oculus headsets become lighter so that you don't feel like you're wearing your laptop on your head, it will revolutionize communications, events, travel... you name it. Think "Minority Report" and that opening scene.
It has to eventually incorporate smell and physical sensations to be truly immersive, but I'm sure they're working on that.

Just send your application to Wolt, Demae-can, ??? panda. Lots of options.
Or, or, they should learn how to operate drones and set up a company that wipes all of these Uber and Uber clones off the map. Drones can deliver your food to your balcony, one day in the future.
Or they can set up those "ghost kitchens" and wipe out 90% of restaurants, one day in the future.
The world is their oyster. Speaking of oysters, they should learn to farm raise those.

China is no threat. They will not do anything that will jeopardize their economy.

@NAM: Good point about the drivers wanting the rider to leave a positive review. But I have found in the U.S. that people are generally fond of Japanese and even the language. It's still a bit of an "exotic" culture in the U.S., despite all the Japanese restaurants. Compared to the other Asian languages, the Japanese language does seem to have a mellower tone, at least to the American ear. And there are far few Japanese compared to other Asians, like Chinese, Korean, or Cambodian.

My 2nd shot was from one of the Moderna lots that had the contaminants. Thought I was headed for that great Torii gate in the sky. But a week or so later, maybe I just crapped it out like the rest of the poison I put in my body, like don quixote cake doughnuts (those things are hard to resist).
