Posted in: Ex-interpreter for MLB star Shohei Ohtani pleads not guilty to bank and tax fraud See in context

Anyone know how to reconcile the $41mm of net losses with the $17mm he allegedly stole from Otani? Unlikely Ippei paid that $24mm difference out of his own pocket given his salary was like $70k per year. I have yet to see this difference explained anywhere.

So, no picture of a guy with a big backpack on backwards, carving out space intentionally so that he can hold his smartphone on top of it to play a game or watch videos, while smashing everyone else?

Posted in: 12% of Japan convenience stores don't open 24 hours due to labor shortage See in context

Recently went into my local convenience store late and night to find there were no staff inside the store and signs saying just use the self check-out. One other "customer" was there reading a manga.

Still waiting for the studies to come out about how the Covid-19 restrictions, which lead to CO2 declines beyond any environmentalists's wildest dreams, lead to cooler temperatures and less climate change. Surely they are coming no?

Posted in: Ohtani says he never bet on sports; claims interpreter Mizuhara stole money, told lies See in context

Otani camp refusing to answer ESPN's question of which "authorities" they reported this "massive theft" too, after stating they had reported this to "the authorities". ESPN spoke with every "authority" they could think of from local police to the FBI and all of these authorities said Otani's camp had not contacted them. Things that make you go Hhhhmmm....

And by the way I don't care how rich you are, you know if $4.5mm is gone from your personal account or slush fund.

Posted in: Samsung unveils two new foldable smartphones See in context

I've had he flip 4 since it first came out and love it. I will wait until the Flip 6 to upgrade. Not seeing enough upgrades in the Flip 5 to justify the cost of changing from the flip 4 to flip 5, but the flip 5 does look cool. I can't imagine ever going back to a brick phone after using a Samsung flip.
