Posted in: 4 dead after Trump supporters storm U.S. Capitol, forcing Senate to evacuate See in context

This sorry state of affairs proves two things...

Firstly, white privilege is real!

Secondly, Donald Trump and his cronies need to be arrested, charged, prosecuted and jailed for inciting domestic terrorism!

Posted in: Kumamon receives over 5,000 New Year postcards See in context

Someone ought to tell them that behind that cute bear exterior is just a piece of extremely profitable marketing that is fattening the bank accounts of a select few.

If only you were more informed about the overall economic benefits that Kumamon brings to Kumamoto Prefecture... That 'cute bear' has generated a lot of revenue for the prefecture, through tourism and product sales....

And if it was just about the 'money'. Kumamoto Prefecture wouldn't grant usage rights free of charge to anyone who uses Kumamon's image (as long as the product helps to promote the prefecture).

Won't start vaccinations till late February? What's with the delay?

The UK have already completed over 1 million vaccinations, and are aiming to roll out 2 million vaccinations a week, starting this week!!

Posted in: Studio Ghibli quietly joins Twitter as anime production company creates official account See in context

Why can't they release new movie at least every 2 years. And Ghibli Park should be larger and better than Disneyworld in Japan. Why Japanese doesn't support this and always stick to American stuff.

When was the last decent Disney animated film?

I'd rather that Studio Ghibli takes their time and gives us a wonderfully crafted animated film. That has always been and always will be the charm of SG films.

Posted in: Britain, EU reach post-Brexit free-trade deal See in context

2021 is starting to look a bit brighter with both this UK EU deal, and Covid 19 vaccines rolling out. Hopefully we won't hear the words 'brexit' or 'social distancing' come the later half of 2021. I know that I'm certainly sick and tired of these words!!!

"Since her skirt was short, I thought I could easily take some images.” 

We often leave cooked meats on the kitchen top when hosting a party. Doesn't mean that our family cat will take that opportunity to eat any of it.....

Posted in: Yuki Tsunoda joins AlphaTauri to replace Daniil Kvyat See in context

The worst kept secret has been made official. Tsunoda's promotion to F1 has long been expected, which is why it was such a shock when Honda announced their departure from F1. As they had been heavily pushing Red Bull management to promote him.

Therefore, it has me wondering. Even if Honda don't remain in the sport. Whether this move will encourage them to see the IP to their power unit to Red Bull, who'll then get constructor status within F1.

Posted in: Kyoto sightseeing livestream for Chinese viewers becomes controversial; sparks ire in locals See in context

I've been to Kyoto a number of times over the past decade.

2013, it was manageable. 2015, I noticed an increased compared to the last time, but still okay for the most part. But 2018 was the worst experience, due to how overly crowded Kyoto had become compared to my prior trips.

Haven't been back since, and if I did, it would only be during the months of January/February. Other than that, I'll much rather enjoy the sakura and Koyo seasons in the Tohoku region!

Posted in: Johnny Depp exits 'Fantastic Beasts' franchise See in context

Growing less and less fond of the Harry Potter universe, that I loved in my childhood. What, with JK being a transphobe and constantly problematic, and now Johnny Depp being forced to leave the Fantastic Beasts franchise (he was, imo, the only saving grace of that film series)

Sadly, the sale of this rice burger heavy hitter is only happening for a short stint,, so you’ll have to grab one fast if you want to try it out.

Or just go to Mos Burger, as these rice burgers are available 365 days of the year.....

Posted in: Abe says he didn’t want to cosplay as Mario at 2016 Olympics See in context

In addition to the 20-hour flight, Abe also recalls that the closing ceremony itself ran behind schedule, and so he spent an entire 10 minutes just standing around at the bottom of the Super Mario pipe he was hiding in, waiting for his cue to pop out.

The mental imagery that is going through my head at this. I can't but laugh to myself.....

Posted in: BTS management agency stock doubles on market debut See in context

Very risky investment if these people are investing for the long term. Because unlike the other agencies such as SM, YG and JYP that have debuted numerous successful groups over the years. Big Hit has BTS, and well only really BTS.... A recent boy group that they debuted, is doing okay, but nothing amazing. So, unless they can hit it lucky with a few more groups of BTS' level. The bubble will eventually burst, and along with it, those high stock levels......

Posted in: Japan may ease rules on 'morning-after pill' next year: report See in context

Doesn't mean one should stop using a raincoat with viruses lurking.

If the people involved are engaging in casual sex, then yes.

But as has been highlighted in the article. The activists are calling for a ease in rules, for the victims of rape (in particular). Because a rapist doesn't care about using a condom
