There were only two sentences in the ARTICLE...kind of hard to give an opinion.

Posted in: Retiring in Japan: What’s the best strategy? See in context

Retiring in Japan is a snap if:

A. You have no mortgage or other credit expenses...and you own your own place.

B. You and a spouse are the only dependents.

C. You take in about ¥300,000 from pensions or other sources every month guaranteed.

D. You have about ¥25,000,000 in cash to play with.

Very easy to retire here.

E. Don't own a car...in my opinion. Life is so easy with trains here and if you need a car, just rent one for the specific purpose.

I hope they tossed the food at the buffet into a dust bin. I would have asked for my money back and left.

Actually I would find it quite titillating and honored if someone stole mine to smell. . .especially when they left me a new pair.

Will have to start leaving change in my shoes.

Posted in: Asahi Super Dry’s draft beer in a can, the Nama Jockey Can, is here See in context

Nothing worse than ordering a beer in an Izakaya and head to the toilet and when you come back you wonder who drank half your beer.

If the menu says 500ml of beer, and I get delivered a beer that is half full of bubbles, I ask them to give me 500ml of beer! I point at the menu and tell them it says beer! Not 250ml of beer and 250ml of bubbles.

The overall goal is to make your can of Super Dry feel more like a freshly poured draft beer at an **izakaya pub**

And just like with standard draft beer from your favorite **izakaya, the new Asahi Super Dry Nama Jockey Can has only 50% beer and the rest is foam!**

Agreed

Posted in: FDA OKs first new ADHD drug in over a decade for children See in context

That’s been a problem with earlier ADHD treatments like Ritalin, nearly all of which contain the stimulants amphetamine or methamphetamine.

Studies show that most kids getting Ritalin never abuse other drugs. Same with diabetics.

Ritalin can cause excessive body hair though. One of the side affects of the drug. Males usually deal with it ok, but females can become quite concerned having hairy backs and limbs. So, psychologically they need councelling quite often.

I wonder what drugs they use in Japan...I see signs outside pharmacies saying ADHD.

"fantasizing about the moment I could take off my high heels"

I have lots of guy friends that are called with -chan. It is cute and endearing.

There might be hassles for women at work, but they do rule the roost at home in 99% of the time.

We have been offered money for ours, and you can really get them to pay quite a bit. Enough to buy several new ones.

Posted in: Restaurant, bar owners worry about tighter COVID-19 steps See in context

So many people I know now go out earlier and then go hang out in parks to socialize eating snacks and light drinks since establishments close down. The owners of the establishments usually go along.

So they got a search warrant to look for old shoes?

Many of Tokyo's cases have been linked to nightlife and dining,

Well, I just got back from a party and we were very cautious. Even used sign language and texting instead of talking. Beat the 8 o'clock closing time, so the virus was still asleep waiting to attack after that anyway.

I got tested twice free of charge. Had two operations.

So, if you can figure out a way to get operated on, you will get a free test. Hope that makes everyone happy.

Posted in: Australia says politicians no longer exempt from sexual harassment rules See in context

Questions: Would someone telling me my legs look great in a new dress be called sexual harassment? Would complimenting me on a new haircut be sexual harassment?

There are some lines that need to be drawn.

In America you can't compliment a male, female nor any other made up genders. That is so sad in my opinion. We have lost touch with humanity. Compliments get the endorphins running and that is human.

There are people all over this forum insisting on random testing, and that is absurd to do.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 545 coronavirus cases; Osaka logs 905 See in context

Yes I can and I have. Laws of statistics can't be changed, at least not yet in our universe.

There would be even less cases found if the testing was done randomly, because then you would be testing people without any symptoms at all in general.

It is very hard to get a test here, so if a qualified doctor requests and gets the tests done, there is a reason for it. And as we can tell from the numbers, most of those tests proved negative for Covid-19, but probably showed positive for other illnesses of which they were more than likely tested for as well.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 545 coronavirus cases; Osaka logs 905 See in context

If there were a lot of asymptomatic cases, then there would be a lot of symptomatic cases as that is the standard and norm, but we just do not see it happening, so a waste of time testing those not needing it. Pure logic.

Posted in: On average, how much time each day do you spend on social networking sites? See in context

I have only recently started commenting here and find people friendly to say the least, but do not spend much time commenting. Too many important news sites to scan and compare to make educated guesses and reactions.

Never used FB. Had instagram once for my art, but they kept ratcheting my viewers because they did not like my body art. Silly people.

If the people really want to show their anger, those with tickets should demand their money back and not go to the events. And during TV airtime, don't watch a thing and therefore not watch any commercials.

Would you do the same in a restaurant or coffee shop ?

Where is it against the rules to eat and drink, in the restaurant or on the train?

He did the right thing

Please try that again. Reread what you wrote. It makes no sense.

I ate Pocky on the train today too. It was excellent. I froze them at home first. After inserting one stick I moved the mask up. etc.
