Starting to think someone just down votes upon seeing my Korean name. I said nothing political. Got some haters of Ronald McDonald and his character friends here.

As for the support Ukraine is getting from around the world, it has ALL been voluntary. Any suggestion otherwise would be a false narrative.

US president Biden has pledged $33 billion in TAXPAYER dollars to ukraine in weapons and other aid. In congress now...

UK prime minister Johnson pledged another $1.3 billion of TAXPAYER pounds...

So, no. It is not voluntary.

Posted in: Russian ambassador to Poland hit with red paint See in context

Ambassadors and their guards are authorized to use proportional force in protecting themselves and the ambassador, especially if the local police aren't doing their job. Bear spray or a tazer could be considered proportional, as I don't think it's easy for bodyguards to carry paint.

And the ambassador himself will begin to doubt his dictator, if he doesn't already

I'd think it would have the opposite effect. If someone threw something at me, I wouldn't say "oh, you're right. I'm wrong. How silly of me." I'd first punch his lights out and then have more of a hatred for his ideology.

Everybody: Why is doctor who portrayed as black and female?

Me: why is doctor who not portrayed as a Dalek, zarbi, voord, or other alien? Why doesn't doctor who speak with an alien accent or at least a non-british one (eh american, Russian, kiwi)?

Seriously...phonetic spelling is nice. We have different letters for different pronunciations for a reason. If you don't like the Latin alphabet, feel free to use another. I spell my name phonetically when using English (latin alphabet), but I can use Hangeul.

Purple depressed bacon:

It was actually an ancient practise of keeping bodies within the home. Ancient digs have found multiple bodies under the floor in the main section of the house. Perhaps we are just slowly returning to an ancient practise?

Only in Japan. I dont think there is any other country that would allow this type of cafe to operate.

Believe i saw a few maid cafes in the States. Definitely nowhere near as many as Japan, but they are there.

Well, comedians dont have to be funny to everyone or anyone on a joke, but that's their job to poke fun. Many in the states do so with trump and his orange complexion.

...making them look like pretty anime or manga characters.

Giant eyes and blue, green, etc hair would do so -- anime must have that.

And this is 26kbs where I live. Dialup speed for 100mbs speed. They say the speed varies based on tower locations, but if that's the case, then they know from my address that there are no tlwers and I should pay only like $10/mo for the inconvenience speed.

Toasted heretic

Not sure why anyone listens to the witterings of pop stars from 30, 40 years back. Heroes are always going to disappoint you, eventually. It's not like the people in the 1918 flu epidemic were listening to the opinions of tired vaudeville stars from the 1880s?

Werent they silent and black and white back then? ;)

@William77

This is why Germany is a trusted and well liked European country now.

Japan has a long way to go

China, North Korea, and south Korea used and still use anti-Japanese propaganda to redirect away from internal struggles and failings of their own regimes. Imagine germany, defeated and govt changed by the allies, surrounded by the Peoples Republic of France, the Democratic People's Republic of Belgium, and the Republic of Netherlands (capitalist dictatorship until 1988). Those leaders in those countries don't want the people to concentrate on terrible conditions and human rights of their own govts, they want the people to look at what the germans did to them. "Its all their fault. Dont blame us, we're the govt trying to save you from the imperial-fascist foes of germany for the past 80 years. Their fault."

And no, not trying to minimise the comfort women issue. The govts of those countries don't care, they just want to keep the scapegoat for all their failings.

For the prices they sell these machines at, it should come with a built-in internet (or "xbox net") that communicates with other consoles. Not a modem, but a full-fledged internet without subscription, etc. Working right out of the box.

RecklessToday 04:24 pm JST

I recently started playing Fortnite on my pc with my son who plays it on Switch. Internet games are great but the downside is the internet connection which sometimes causes a delay or error at a crucial moment. I think both dedicated consoles and internet games have their place

I'm currently in the boonies. Internet is 26kbs usually (dial-up speed). Unless the console games available are standalone (dont require internet for registration, logging on, general playing, or anything else), don't require internet updates, and I can buy physical games rather than downloading (you know how many months it would take to download 1GB of data on 26kbs?), I cannot buy.

Thought a teraflop was a type of flop, like in movies.

Flop - failed

Kiloflop- failed badly

Megaflop- failed miserably

Gigaflop - failed terribly

Teraflop - the worst fail currently allowed by technology

example - the latest sale of the Xbox 180 was a record teraflop when only 10 sales out of 100 million projected were recorded.

My guess is that if the law passes, Australian news disappears from those sites. No link to or nothing. Already have that issue with new Zealand news. No live. I finally found choppy pieces of 2 min segments from NZ, but hardly the best.

Just a thought, but how about bringing businesses to the depopulation towns in the not-tokyo regions? Revitalise the Tokyo. Defintiely would lower costs, be cheaper to build, and less traffic. Japan is not just tokyo.

Posted in: Father arrested for forcibly giving 11-year-old daughter buzz cut See in context

Don't parents already do this with boys (the buzz cut) for different reasons? Equality one step at a time...

MeiyouwentiToday 05:46 pm JST

“The father was arrested for battery, not for giving the daughter short back and sides”

Forcibly cutting someone’s hair constitutes assault and battery

I agree. While I was never forcibly cut, I was facing torment as I didn't want to cut my hair but I didn't want to disappoint my parents. Then later, a friend went into the military and he was so psychologically scarred from his buzz cut. If women can keep theirs, why can't men? Some men find it just as mentally damaging losing their hair as women.
