IMO opinion if someone is that much of a loser to harass people online, they deserve whatever they get.

What is this fascination with Israel from the anti-vaxxers? Israel has about 62% of the population fully vaccinated. Get your head out of the echo chambers and into the real world. My office was getting mullered by covid until they started vaccinating people, which stopped it in it's tracks.

It's understandable. Having armed forces easily vulnerable to sickness is no use to anyone, except your enemy.

Posted in: Quarantine remains biggest deterrent to air travel See in context

It just seem like too much hassle to me. Tests, quarantining, not being able to relax or do things properly at the destination just makes me feel like staying here. I'd love to see family and friends back home though.

Posted in: Reduced splash, easier smart phone operation among reasons more guys prefer to pee while seated See in context

Fox Sora WintersToday  10:06 am JST

Why is smart phone operation even a factor in this decision? What is wrong with people that they can't even go for a leak without their smartphones?

Actually in Japan you should always have your phone with you but that's not to say you need to be glued to it all the time. I discovered this necessity on March 11 2011 as I had stepped out of my office quickly to the convenience store, leaving my phone at my desk but the big earthquake hit as I was out....

Posted in: Case involving teenage cyclist accused of reckless riding sent to prosecutors See in context

I do not believe bicycles should be restricted by too many rules, as the benefit of a bicycle after all is to be a convenient and cleaner form of transport. Dangerous behaviour is not cool though.

Umbrellas don't really get stolen in Japan. Most people put some into the system and sometimes take back.

I was pro-Eu, anti brexit but I've come to realise the authority of the EU does need to be scaled back. It should only be a trading union, not a federal one.

You did not because they would never get planning for it. What you might've seen them build is a metal frame steel reinforced breeze block building but no way a brick house, that'd be suicide. If it looks like a brick house it will be brick effect siding panels.

Here, you don't need to apologize:

There are no brick houses in Japan.

Oh, really? So I didn't just see my neighbors building a brick house next to mine then? Zichi, do you even live in Japan?! Clueless.

I don't like Bojo at all but in a way he is right. Having been raised in England and knowing what the people are like, they will find their way. It might take some time but they'll be fine, no thanks to the government.

Me too, I love my life here. That's not to say it wasn't tough at times in my earlier years here but some hard work and marrying the right lady has made life pretty sweet.
