It is nice but it's a very small nice area. Not worth the journey out there solely for that IMO.

Indonesia has taken an interesting view of vaccine roll out. They've decided to vaccinate younger people first so they can go out to work normally, reopening the economy. With many transmissions happening between family members at home from the person who needs to work, it's actually a pretty good idea when you think about it.

I said to travel, read my comment properly before being facetious. People should've been prevented leaving and entering the island. How anyone can deny that would've helped would be denying reality.

Too early to say anything about Biden's future at all.

People just cannot be absolutely sure how long he will be fit enough (both physically and mentally) to call the shots by himself.

He already said himself he's just a transition President.

Sad American GI Joe wannabees in military fatigue, losers. The US will eventually have to wake up to the fact it's not a good idea to allow stupid people such easy access to guns.

Britain has finally shut it's travel corridors, 9 or 10 months too late. I feel so angry at the Tory incompetence and while I'll never know for sure, I guess my family and friends there wouldn't have had to endure such drawn out lockdowns if the islands ports were closed to travel earlier.

I can just imagine these taxi drivers eyes ringing up YEN when picking up a fare like this one.

He was indeed very naïve, probably blinded by the greed. There's no way in hell you're getting a taxi ride like that without proof of payment or payment upfront where I come from.

I really don't understand America. It just seems to me the country that fought to be a republic yearns for a king, at least that's the reason I think there are so many Americans who latch on to these cult figures.

especially as corporations and wealthy political donors distance themselves from Trump

Corporations and wealthy political donors siding with the Dems, as usual.

Well that would be a firm message that they think trump is actually bad for business.

I said it before, Trumps strategy all the way from the run up to this election was discredit it from day one, on that basis alone he deserves impeachment for actively trying to undermine the democratic process.

If a nut attacks you in a bar and you defeat him and kick him in the head for good measure, you have just made an enemy for life, but if after you defeat him you pick him up and buy him a beer you will have made a friend for life.

A friend for the rest of your life you mean, after they've taken the beer you offer and stab you in the back as you're leaving.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say those strawberries are placed right at the front edge of the sandwiches. Open up the sandwich, and it'll look mostly empty.

I'm not gonna buy one to find out but yeah, I'll bet you're right.

So Somalia and about 100 other third world countries that don't even have running water are handling the virus better than Ireland.

If they don't have a government functioning enough to provide running water, how the hell are they gonna realistically have a health service that knows what the virus is doing nationwide??

According to two friends from Africa who both work at embassies in Tokyo (Tanzania, Libya), African countries have the experience of fighting Ebola, possibly stronger immunity of its people, and favorable climate conditions.

Some western African countries had ebola, so yeah those countries have experience and in general Africa has quite a young population which could help. However, many countries are embroiled in conflict making it impossible to get around the country to accurately know what's happening. South Africa gives us a more realistic picture of what is going on.

Wrong, you do not get testing even if you have symptoms in most cases. You have to have severe symptoms requiring hospitalization to even qualify to be a candidate to be offered a free test.

Which is no different to how many other countries approach testing, it's making sure resources aren't wasted. As I have said before, from my experience in Tokyo tests are offered on insurance if you have had close contact with a positive case, was not asked about 2 metres or masks.

Do the hustleToday  07:26 am JST

I guess couples really find out how much they like each other when they have to spend a lot of time together. Obviously, many couples don’t like each other as much as they should.

I'm often surprised at how little time (if at all) many Japanese people live together for before marriage. It just seems like too many people drift into marriage because they're getting older and they've met someone who is attractive and makes an acceptable living. They then spend the rest of their miserable married lives sniping about each other behind their backs. OK I'm generalising somewhat but I don't seem to find that situation much where I come from.
