MERRIE BABY DIAPERS are one of the best on the market soft and absorbent and they would be wise to ship overseas.

Merries is definitely the best, "Goon" is second best (what a name lol). Pampers feels like it's made out of paper towels compared to Merries lol

Sounds to me like Trump, Biden, and the US steelworkers all know something that Nippon Steel's "dialogue" doesn't so far.

I can't even sit through season 3; season 1 was something new and it seemed to be setting the series up for something big, but that never materialized. S2 was uneven, though I didn't mind the Luke parts, in fact it was probably a highlight.

Posted in: Second-hand clothes finally take off in Japan See in context

Vintage clothing has been a serious niche in Japan for decades, especially from the '70s/'80s and onward. Nowadays it's a huge deal, no need to look further than Shibuya and Harajuku stores.

2nd Street is everywhere too.

Taking bets: when all the hostages are back, the ceasefire will be broken and Israel will completely flatten Gaza.

Posted in: Heavy fighting rages near main Gaza hospital; people trapped inside say they cannot flee See in context

The people of Gaza should go out fighting,if you gonna be killed by Isrealis,you should mount a resistance,and at least die fighting

They're only good at surprise attacks, when the fight gets taken to them suddenly they're too chicken.

Posted in: School's out forever in parts of aging Japan See in context

It is indeed sad to literally watch Japan rot, those that say the population will stabilize just arent looking at how many elderly there are & how FEW young people are in Japan, its likely too late for Japan to fix without REALLY opening up to the rest of the world, Japan likely wont have a choice in the matter the way things are going!

Great, so Japan will just turn into Indonesia or Pakistan at this rate.

It people are able to buy such medication without a doctor's approval then there is something seriously wrong with the system.

Posted in: Florida Gov DeSantis says he's sending weapons to Israel See in context

I’m not comfortable with this, nor with Newsom meeting with Xi Jinping. Foreign policy should be the reserve of the Federal government, not individual states.

It's part of running for president, Trump met with Pena Nieto and held a press conference in 2016 while running. It made him look presidential.

This war mongering by Israel is disgusting!

A massive disproportionate reaction to Israel’s inability to have prepared for an attack from militants from Palestine.

Wah wah wah, Hamas hides behind civilians, they're getting exactly what they want.

They whacked the hornet's nest and now want the world's sympathy when they get stung.

Posted in: Tokyo's Shibuya braces for Halloween crowd despite calls to stay away See in context

To be honest if it weren't for the large foreign turnout this would not be an issue. But just look at the annual Akasaka Hikawa Matsuri held in mid September or the Sanja Matsuri festival in Asakusa with drunk yakuza full body tatoos in full display and nearly two million people per event visiting during the three-day event and not a single word by the local government about all the shenanigans happening there!

Ah yes, but those guys paid the protection money for their events.

Posted in: Hamas frees two Israeli women as U.S. advises delaying ground war to allow talks on captives See in context

Biden is willing bet his Presidency on an unpopular politician like Bibi and get nothing in return,that picture with Bibi seal his political fate with the Arab and Muslims voters

Biden is lining up weapons contracts, which seems to be half of the US govt's job these days, he's doing his job.

Posted in: Hamas frees two Israeli women as U.S. advises delaying ground war to allow talks on captives See in context

Delaying is probably the best solution since Hamas will never be wiped out. There will always be another Islamic extremist group that will claim ownership of Israel by force, so even if Hamas is eradicated, another group will sprout and repeat everything all over again. That's the unfortunate reality.


Education levels in Muslim countries are low and if you have studied Islam you'll know that not only does it call for jihad against non-believers, but the Quran cannot be read or interpreted in other ways because they believe it to be the word of Allah, present from eternity to eternity. There is no King James version of the Quran because the language in it has not changed from the time of its writing to the present.

Meanwhile, Hamas dreams of doing all of those to Israel and made its move on 10/7.

The àging wealthy of China too could soon be facing such threats, though they seem a bit more savvy than Japanese seniors.

They're not, phone scams are widespread in all of East Asia these days. Taiwan is also seeing lots of young and elderly people getting scammed.
