We have this every.single.YEAR! Government can't even come up with fast-response-prefab-room where people can have at least better sleep during hard times!

China is backed by American corporations, corrupt as hell.

Posted in: Traffic law to punish tailgating to go into effect Tuesday See in context

The problem with Japan is that old drivers don't get updated on new rules, they've built bad habit and care not about changing how they drive.

Posted in: Japan puzzled by Indonesia's policy shift over high-speed rail plan See in context

Why on earth would you let China build infrastructure in your country ? So they'll break and you buy more crappy stuffs from them ? Even Chinese don't buy Chinese-made stuffs.

"forgot", meaning "I'll just leave her so I can work" ... work culture in Japan is toxic.

Posted in: Tokyo ranked 3rd most expensive city in world for expats See in context

Keep in mind that "expat" in this context merely means those who are here on company's expense, live in azabu juban, have meals at michelin-graded restaurants everyday, and don't interact with the locals.

Posted in: Do you think the closure of a bookstore or a newspaper's print version is a sad thing? See in context


A personal observation, I've noticed that I don't remember much about the books I read on my phone, but I remember quite a lot about the books which I physically touch and read.

I later discovered from reading neurology article, that when multiple senses are stimulated during an activity, the "learning" effect lasts longer, or leave better impression.

Posted in: Can a democracy exist without competing parties? See in context


The point is to have as much conflicting ideas as possible, debate on them to see which ones withstand scrutinization. Today, no one has time or even care about that, which is why it's easy for the ruling parties to take away your democratic rights.

Posted in: Lawyers say Japanese video game time ban for kids violates constitution See in context

It's more of a "we did enact a law, if your kids are still addicted, then it's your fault" gesture that Japanese politicians love to do, so no blames will fall on them.

Posted in: Japan enacts law toughening regulations on tech giants See in context

I don't like China, but their policy to block Amazon, Google, Facebook has birthed their own Alibaba, Baidu, Tencents, etc. It seems that innovation works when you allow your people to innovate instead of being overwhelm and drowned by giants.

Posted in: How do you feel about your "friends" posting mind-numbing details about their daily lives on Facebook and Twitter? See in context

People may need to vent or boast once in a while, no problem. But, with repeated offenses, I will diagnose said friends with "attention whore" syndrome, then I simply unfollow.

Posted in: Why is Taiwan excluded from the WHO? See in context

The fact that there are only 15 minor nations - no offense intended - who recognize Taiwan, says a lot about how much China controls the world. It's appaling how the freedom-parading-home-of-the-brave-bully that is the US only has enough bravery to impose trade-sanctions to harmless Venezuela, but not China who actively pose threats to the US.

Posted in: After the coronavirus is contained worldwide, what do you think the global community's relationship with China will be like? See in context

I hope countries & companies start bringing back productions back home or elsewhere, we need to stop relying our ability to provide for ourselves on a regime that's openly lying and acting tyrannical when called out.

Posted in: When you look at Facebook, do you sometimes get the feeling that everyone else has a more interesting life than you? See in context

Not anymore. Ask yourself a question, do you also see them when they're depressed, crying and sad ? Facebook is nothing more than a digital version of family/friends photo albums, afaik, there's almost no sad family photo albums.

Posted in: Japan to help shift output to ASEAN from China after virus disruption See in context

ASEAN doesn't like China either, not even Singapore - which is Chinese ethnic majority - likes China, ASEAN maybe small compare to China, but a rich ASEAN is a balancing force in the region, an advantage in global politics and economy.

Posted in: Ex-Green Beret led failed attempt to oust Venezuela's Maduro See in context

I've been wondering a long time, why is it that the US always meddle in other people's business ? If Venezuelans want to live in a communism and they're happy, just let them be! Why does the US have to trade embargo/sanction them, so they become really poor ? Is it because socialism makes people happy ? and the plutocrats are afraid that people would find out ?

Posted in: Many Japanese defy appeals to stay home to curb virus See in context

Say, 70% of people stay home, but after days and days of seeing the 30% enjoying life as before, the 70% would little-by-little just flip the table and go out. The age-old dilemma of "why should I sacrifice when the others won't ?".
