I'd try it out. I enjoy technology making life a little easier.

How awful. Sexual assaults happen too much and too often.

Posted in: Is a completely cashless society desirable? See in context

NO. Because it will be controlled electronically. If world financial systems go down or even your local bank how do you get your money? What's to say systems don't get wiped and your retirement fund says zero? We are teetering on that point by everything already being digital. To have zero material that acts like cash (paper and/or coins) that means we have nothing nor will financial institutions give us anything as an IOU.

Posted in: Do robots and AI lead to more job creation than they destroy? See in context

It will lead to less jobs being available because companies won't be paying a robot for work and they would already not be paying a person wages or pension. The lie that robots and ai will create jobs is just a cover for people to be fine with the changes. No thanks.

I hate that we have come to the point where tradition is put before the safety and concerns of human lives.

Posted in: Five-minute walks best way to comfort crying babies, says study See in context

Many people and generations have known this. The problem is if you are incapacitated and can not just get up and walk with baby. What people actually need is solutions for when babies are colic.

No sympathy. She thought she could fool a person because they were not Japanese and the person called her bluff. Foreign doesn't mean stupid.

Sigh...food is meant for eating right? Dock the pay or expand it to all. This just causes division in the ranks.

It saddens me that even when Iraqi women are told yes they are still thrown a no.

I think it was done on purpose and it is a bucking of social traditions. More power to her. Counter culture at its best thumbing its nose at what people guffaw at.

Posted in: Mother arrested over attempted murder of 3-month-old son See in context

I was told that Japanese do not look kindly on adoption and it is the family's responsibility to care for children (and yeah, rightly so). I also volunteered in an orphanage years ago and it was filled with children mostly from families who couldnt afford to care for the kids. The kids lived at the place, having their own beds and getting meals daily. The family would visit them and send clothes/things if they could. When there was sports day the parents would go watch them.

This horrible attack on this baby's life is heartbreaking. I know these things happen all over the world and I hate it but I read it happening way too often in Japan. I feel society is so harsh and burdensome that young adults can't handle rearing children and older adults tire of caring for their aging parents. It is awful.

Posted in: Holding Tokyo Olympics amid pandemic shreds consensus in Japan See in context

It is morally irresponsible to hold the Olympics during a pandemic. "Death or Sports (Money)! Your choice!" I don't even feel that this will unify us during these difficult times. It as a snub. Citizens and visa holders can't get vaccinated yet let's get all these Olympians and their staff vaccinated so they can compete. They don't need to compete. They need to stay safe and dodge the next variant that could pop up.

I love Japan but I am really hating it at the same time.

Wonder if the owner of the car treated the employees at the choux cream place like crap and they took their revenge. That or people are lashing out at the perceived rich during these times.
