Posted in: Nakagami signs new Honda-LCR deal for 2021 and beyond See in context

I don't know why Repsol Honda hasn't courted him yet, he's obviously improving each and every race, and being Japanese could raise the profile of MotoGP in Japan.

Sh1mon M4sada, compare the attendance (2019 and prior) of the Motegi MotoGP and the GPs in Spain.   Spain has way, way more MotoGP fans, hence Repsol Honda is signing Spanish riders.  Trying to cultivate a declining market in Japan is not Repsol's immediate interest.

Conbini sandwiches are as nasty as can be!!  No one has a reason to ever eat these ever.  Has anyone in Japan ever been famished with no alternative except these?

This makes no sense.  Cosports, the official Olympic ticket seller for the US, Australia, and a big part of Europe has already had 2 rounds of first-come, first-serve sales in addition to the initial application/lottery round.  There are Paralympic tickets available now on Cosports for immediate purchase.

Posted in: Gov't to subsidize mask makers amid supply crunch See in context

Check out the lines of non-Japanese queueing up in the mornings and casing drug stores and shops, collaborating in gangs, when one identifies a shop with masks they text or call their associates who upon receiving the message break from the line they are in and high tail it to wherever has the masks.  They are making a ton selling them on the black market. The percentage of the masks staying in Japan is pretty low.   Best solution would be to print a Rising Sun Flag on the front of the mask.  See how many will resell to China with that on the front !

He predicted 2020 would be a "tipping point" for 8K going mainstream.

Nonsense. 4K isn't yet mainstream Japan.  Only like 6 channels on cable broadcasting in 4K and you have to pay extra for most of them.  Also only a small percentage of homes actually have bandwidth speeds that allow for true 4K streaming.

A new favorite one that needs to stop is wearing a fat backpack backwards for the sole purpose of carving out your own space in order to hold your smartphone on top of the backpack so you can play games or whatever on the phone.  Removal of backpacks and holding them while on the train used to be taught as the good manner practice.
