Posted in: FamilyMart to allow shorter operating hours policy across Japan See in context

What will I do when I want my 2am FamiChiki and beer?

In all seriousness though. A 7am opening (especially in Tokyo) would be a very late opening considering the number of people who are already commuting to work before that time and would be wanting to go into a Conbini for something to eat for breakfast/lunch.

I could understand though if Conbinis in more rural areas would want to close overnight though. And I'd say closing hours of 1am - 4/5am in line with the train operating hours would be suitable for a major city like Tokyo.

Very fortunate that this girl is still alive!

That boy needs locking up in a psychiatric hospital for the rest of his life. I'm sorry. He might be a minor but he is clearly a danger and a risk to the public. Intervene before he actually does kill someone in the future!

Posted in: Hong Kong police shoot protester as activists block streets See in context

@Hello Kitty 321

The police officer shot him in the chest area at close range with live ammunition. I've served in the armed forces and that is a kill zone that you aim for in a shoot to kill policy.

And I implore you to check more than just what is being shown in the media. You need to see the CCTV and phone footage that is being uploaded onto SNS on a daily basis. Because the behaviour of the police has been anything but restrained. (and I use the term police very lightly considering the visual evidence of PLA involvement)

Posted in: Hong Kong police shoot protester as activists block streets See in context

Hong Kong is now a police state where the police are allowed to lose live ammunition on unarmed citizens and they have obviously been directed by higher officials to abide by a shoot to kill policy.

The murderer (I I refuse to call him a police officer) Kwan Kar Wing, police number #A856, is most likely already safely on his way to Bejing.

Posted in: Violence spreads across Hong Kong's New Territories in 24th weekend of unrest See in context

A police officer this morning shot an unarmed kid in the chest at close range. At no point did this kid display himself as being a threat, nor did the police officer issue any prior warning.

Clearly the police are now going by a shoot to kill policy.

(Go on twitter and look up his name Kwan Kar Wing. He's already been named and shamed with his murdering face and name plastered all over the internet)

Saw England vs Japan last year at Twickenham. Was a fantastic game and Japan were impressive even then. Hopefully I'll be able to get some tickets to one of these two games!

I saw the police cars and ambulances outside Italy Park as I was making my way to Hamamatsucho Station. At the time I wondered what was going on and it saddened me when I heard that a newborn baby was discovered.

RIP little one :(

Posted in: Fire causes damage near another World Heritage site in Japan See in context

The risk of a fire at one of these sights is to be expected. Even more so at temples.

But two fires at two World Heritage sites in the space of a week seems a bit suspicious to me. It reminds me of a few years ago when someone was targeting temples...

You won't catch me flying a 737 MAX. At least not for the next few years till it's proved itself. Till that time arrives though I will pay extra on a flight that doesn't use that plane.

Posted in: Everyone is watching us now, says proud Japan coach Joseph See in context

Japan can hold their heads up high.

I never expected them to beat my team or top Pool A (I'm Irish). But they did, and they did it with some very beautiful rugby!

Their games were exciting to watch and I am just as excited to see the continued growth of not only the national team but also all levels. From grassroots rugby up to the professional teams. By the 2023 RWC it would be amazing to see even more progression and hopefully also an invitation to the Rugby Championship for frequent games against NZ, Australia, South Africa and Argentina.

The Chinazi thinking that they can dictate the whole world......

Sad thing is though they will succeed when western corporations care more about money than humanity.

Funny how only the other day I was reading an article about how Studio Ghibli films will never be made available for online streaming.

Doesn't affect me either way though as I have all the films on dvd.

Posted in: Cyber-bullied K-pop star found dead at her home See in context

I was absolutely heartbroken when this news broke. I just couldn't believe it.

I've known of Sulli since she was just a kid and the appearances that she'd make before her debut with f(x). And then I remember her debut with f(x) and watching her grow up over the years from a young girl into a beautiful and talented young woman who wasn't afraid to talk about women's rights, and also equal rights for everyone regardless of their race or sexuality. She wasn't afraid to speak out against Korea's conservative values and sadly as a result she was relentlessly cyberbullied by the Korean media and Knetz.

Everyone who has ever directly sent her hate messages throughout the years are all equally responsible for her death.

I just hope though that she can now rest easy :(

Posted in: Japan beats Scotland 28-21 to advance to Rugby World Cup quarterfinals for first time See in context

Some incredible stats from this year's World Cup (courtesy of the BBC)

Japan are just the fourth non-Tier 1 side to reach the quarter-finals and the first since Fiji in 2007

Scotland have failed to make it out of the pool stages for just the second time, after also doing so in 2011

Japan have won six consecutive Rugby World Cup matches, only Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and England have enjoyed longer winning runs

Samoa (1995, 1991) are the only other non-Tier 1 side to beat two Tier 1 sides in the same World Cup, as Japan have in 2019

If the level of growth that we have been seeing continues in Japanese rugby, maybe in the future Japan's status as a Tier 2 nation should be reevaluated.

What a game!!!

Congratulations to the Brave Blossoms. If you said to me before this tournament that Japan would top Pool A undefeated, I wouldn't of believed you. Not when Pool A had Ireland and Scotland in. But the Brave Blossoms have done exactly that!

And no matter what happens next in the knockout stages. Japan are the team of the tournament!!!

"We strongly demand that the Japanese government compensate for the infliction of the material damage by sinking our vessel," the unnamed spokesman said. "If such an incident occurs again, Japan will face an undesirable consequence."

What will you do exactly? Try anything and NK will be wiped off the face of the earth.

Next time keep out of Japan's EEZ or you can be sent the bill for the rescue!!!!

Too many rugby fans on SNS who fail to grasp just how powerful and unpredictable typhoons can be..

"why not just move to another venue?"

How would you propose relocating numerous teams and all the media/staff etc to the one possible venue on Kyushu that might not be affected? Oh and that is if the typhoon's path doesn't change course again...
