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

Posted in: Bicycle traffic violations hit record high as cycling booms amid pandemic See in context

The public appears to lack awareness that bicycle riders are subject to traffic rules just as vehicle drivers are, an agency official said.

This statement can be said for any country.... The number of times (when I've driven back home in the UK), where a cyclist would ignore a red light, cut you up, and then have the nerve to give you abuse.

Whether they are a convicted Japanese or Korean war criminal, it doesn't matter where their place of birth was. None of these men deserve recognition, let alone a military pension!

Thankfully the last of his kind, and good riddance once he's gone!!

My wife and I have already cancelled our annual trip to her parents' house in Hokkaido, for Obon next month. It's unfortunate, as it's something that we look forward to ever year (especially to escape the Tokyo heat). But it's the right thing to do.

There will be plenty more Obon holidays to look towards in future years to come (and it's better to observe Obon, alive and with our alive family members)

Police said Murakami told them he found his mother dead on the night of July 16 and that he took the body in his car to Natori in Miyagi Prefecture where he disposed of it between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. the next morning. 

Might as well just be honest, sunshine, and admit that you murdered your own Mother.....

The CCP and it's puppet, the WHO, can both cease operations and dissolve. Neither are credible, and only act as a hindrance to the global community!

I hope that one day the world will see that the ROC is the country that they should be backing, and not the PRC!!

Posted in: Many schools in Japan reopen after monthlong coronavirus shutdown See in context

A State of Emergency is about to be declared and schools around the country are deciding that now is the right time to reopen? Stupid. Absolutely stupid!! Fortunately for my family, my girls' school remain closed for the foreseeable future.

It is taking a hit on their education and social interactions with their friends (Though we're doing our best to home school them and allowing them to facetime with their friends). But right now, their own safety and the safety of those around them is more important.

> Megumi Aoyama, 34, welcomed the move, saying she was worried that the further prolonging of school closures would affect her daughter who enters elementary school this year.

Since when has that been the school's job? That's your job as her Mother! Seriously...... My girls have known about how to follow basic hygiene practices since they were very young!!

Of course! Suspending the acceptance of international mail, but not putting the country into a lockdown, will certainly sort out all of the problems! Abe and co have saved Japan!! HOORAY!!!!!!!

Posted in: April Fools! K-Pop star pranks his fans that he has coronavirus See in context

Arrogant and ignorant to the global pandemic, and a disgrace to treat his fans in that way. His true character has shined through from this 'joke' of his.

I doubt (hope anyway) that we'll be seeing him being active anytime soon though. He is being torn to shreds right now by Knetz and the majority of the K Pop community. The only people defending him are his diehard delusional fangirls, and fortunately those are very few and far between right now.
