It was a Japanese who created the Ruby programming language. I can't think of a single contribution Koreans have made to the software industry.

This is a world-wide problem. Demographers are predicting that in 20 years, Russia will be a Muslim majority country. China will start shrinking too in a couple of years.

Also, you can't force women to have babies. Sweden has very generous social programs but Swedes don't want to have children so that country has to import lots of fertile foreigners.

Respect the virus but do not fear it. Wear a face mask and face shield and social distance. If you are sick, stay home. I trust the Japanese people with their intelligence and discipline to do what is right.

I don't think Yasukuni has any Valkyries

They have the hottest shrine maidens, though.

military top brass who got you killed in their stupid, pointless war,

Almost all wars are stupid and pointless in the long run. That is why Sun Tzu and others have advocated for winning them without actually having to fight one.

However, having said the above, I do think the country needs a secular Tomb of the Unknowns to honor their dead.

Cricky watches a bunch of Merchant-Ivory films and thinks the British Empire committed no atrocities in Africa, India or China. It was all roses and Kipling and stuff.

Once you enter the halls of Valhalla and dine with the Valkyries, there is no going back.

Alcohol and knives don't mix.

I thought Muslims aren't supposed to drink alcohol.

I hope they get rid of their insulting Tokyo Olympics broadcasting logo with the ridiculous "Asian" font.

The irony is that the paleness gene originated in North Asia as a mutation against the cold, snowy, no sunlight environments of Siberia. The original Caucasians were dark-skinned people from Southwest Asia that only got lighter as they moved northward into Europe.

Posted in: Anti-Olympic protest held in Tokyo See in context

There will be no Olympics in 2021, this talk of vaccines is nonsense.

The IOC said that if Tokyo can't hold the Olympics, then Beijing won't hold the winter Olympics too.

So I bet China will be pressuring Japan to hold it.

What applies to nationals should equally apply to non nationals.

We ride together. We die together.

No surprise. Bullying in Japan is systemic, top down, and part of the social fabric.

All warrior-based cultures have bullying. Japan, Mongolia, Turkey, Spartans, Romans, etc.

British and French bullying is more subtle and revolves around class and accents.

If Tokyo has to cancel the olympics while Beijing gets to have theirs there will be huge outrage!

Posted in: Japan caught in dilemma with mainland China over Hong Kong See in context

People here talk much about Japan is capable of standing up against China. My question for you is HOW?

Build 3000 nuclear weapons, mount on hypersonic missiles and aim at Beijing.

The situation now commands for a Winston Churchill instead of a Neville Chamberlain.

Abe is nowhere close in gravitas or intellect to either of them.

Posted in: Japan caught in dilemma with mainland China over Hong Kong See in context

China destroyed the Japanese economy with Covid, ruined Tokyo's olympic dreams, and routinely violates its territorial integrity. Abe and Suga bending over for Xi is pathetic. Togo, Tojo, Mishima and Mifune must be rolling in their graves.

Unlike Europe or Latin America, the US has the one-drop rule which means that if you have just a tiny amount of black dna, you are considered black. This is why Obama is considered to be Black and not half-black or half-white. In parts of Latin America, you can have some black ancestry but people around you may not consider you black.

She probably got this idea from the Joker movie where he gives out a card to strangers explaining why he bursts out laughing for no reason.
