These children must be brainwashed. They need to be re-focused to education and should focus on studying instead of attaching people around.

It looks like Iran and Iraq have many plastic toy rockets that give no harm to anyone.

US and Israel are the same country. They are equally responsible of the murder. It didn’t sanction itself. Only Turkey put sanctions but i would it’s trade with Israel isn’t significant anyway. Europe is also giving full support for the murder of innocent people.

Law must apply the same for everyone regardless of ethnicity. It sound like the right decision.

Posted in: 63 doctors, dentists sue Google for keeping reviews they say are unfair See in context

I often use hygienist in japan, they are substantially better than those in US and Australia. EU dentist are terrible, no need for comparison. In England, they cleaned only single tooth and charging 800 pound. I had a fight with dentist.

in Australia, they try to clean under gum meat every so often and i always had problem. It was a horrible thing done just to get money. It costs over $1000. Since i move to japan, i have never had any problem. Just a simple hygienist cleaning once in 6 month was enough, costing less than 100 Japanese dollar (100yen is kind of a dollar).

Thank You Japanese Dentists.

US debt is not important since they can print money without any impact on inflation and interest rates. Other countries cannot print significant money without its side effects.

Wasn’t the secondhand shop owner not arrested for buying stolen item? Given the price, it’s obvious that it was stolen item.

Posted in: G7 leaders condemn Iran, warn of risk of escalation See in context

EU behaviour is absolutely disgusting. They allow genocide and slaughtering of children but they are condemning a passive defence of Iran against it’s embassy. Humanity is dead. Purely, religious based action approving killing people who don’t believe in Christianity or old Christianity.

Posted in: 3-year-old girl dies after being hit by car; driver arrested See in context

Was there a wrong behaviour of the driver? I would imagine the self guilt feeling of the young man is a life long heavy punishment if he was a good person. Unfortunately, accidents can happen especially in Japan with extremely poor, substandard roads.

In theory, nobody should ever over speed as it can result in such a sad tragedy, although the fact is that everyone in their lives must have exceeded road’s speed limits at sometime. I hope this is taken as a good lesson for all not to speed especially in residential areas. I am guessing speed was one of the factors in this tragedy.

Title is misleading. It should be the opposite. US is escalating war around the world by providing a lot of weapons to tiny countries and also dictators in other countries.

By the way, my comment was based on what i read in yahoo.com.au news.

Posted in: Man who killed 6 in Sydney mall stabbing rampage had mental health issues, police say See in context

They suspect he must have mental disorder since police didn’t find any motives. It’s not like he was getting treatment of mental disorder. I suppose you can say this for anyone who would try to do such a horrible action.

Those who wanted to know about the murderer’s religion, he was a Christian. Gaza was not his motive.

Population is too dense for japan. It should be reduced below 80 millions considering the land area.

Posted in: Revenge porn consultations reach record high 1,812 cases in 2023 See in context

4.9% increase is not much almost the same, but if it has been increasing the similar rate in past 7 years, it’s concerning.

is there a stats on what percent of it done by men against women before assuming 100%?

Posted in: Japan launches ride-hailing services in Tokyo; other areas to follow See in context


women in Japan prefers to stand behind the men so that they can grab the wallet, empty it and put it back in men’s back pockets. Men accepts it also, so there is no theft, all voluntary actions.

Posted in: Russia says U.S. military presence in Japan impedes any peace treaty with Tokyo See in context

Russia’s international policy has been extremely poor so far and not in good interest of Russian people. Taking entire world as a target is stupid. The only allies Russia has is China and North Korea, not the best allies you would want to have.

i think that Russian people are good people. I feel sorry for them having poor governments regularly.

Posted in: U.S. comedian Jimmy Kimmel says he was blown away by Japan’s bathrooms See in context

The toilets in train stations in japan are probably the worst public toilets in the country, However, they are very compatible with the best public toilets in US and EU. Public toilets in Europe are really disgusting .

There must be already some research and projects work to convert CO2 in different, more useful things. I hope science would come up with a method to convert it to other things through chemical reactions.

It sounds like he wanted to be caught of a crime and be fired. So he dropped his phone with photos.

They are done great job. Those who say everyone does it, should read article more careful. They didn’t sit in their comfort and send few dollars hoping someone else would do the actual work. They have given their own time and actual effort to carry food to the people who are in difficult condition.

Frankly, i believe only very few people in the world would go through such efforts to help others, extremely rare.

I haven’t stayed any hotel that didn’t secure the money first during checkin. Any extension would require adjusting balance, putting deposit etc. This hotel must be very unique.

Biden tells Israel's Netanyahu future U.S. support for war depends on new steps to protect civilians

Steps? Steps must be bombing children with drone rockets instead of shooting them while they are waiting on a line to get food. What a joke!

Posted in: Japanese judge impeached over inappropriate social media posts See in context

A judge should never post a message about any case on social media. In fact, judges should not be involved with any social media. That’s so unprofessional.

I am personally against all the social media networks. I consider them unsafe for any professional, unless someone is in entertainment, marketing, or show biz (such as politics).

Posted in: Man arrested for posting 39 threats against Nintendo online last year See in context

He sounds like mentally unstable, but nintendo’s actions of cancelling event and delaying cannot be related to an individual’s post. If it’s real, nintendo must also be mentally unstable.

Posted in: Russia says U.S. shares blame in concert hall attack claimed by Islamic militants See in context

However, it is much more important to quickly establish who is the customer and sponsor of this monstrous crime. Its traces lead to the Ukrainian special services. But everyone knows that the Kyiv regime is not independent and is completely controlled by the United States," Patrushev said

i agree totally. US is supporting many terrorist groups around the world openly. Sometimes a part of the groups change name to hide the identity.
