Posted in: What advantages does marriage offer that a single lifestyle doesn't? See in context

In Japan quiet a lot, a shared family register, children registration, loans, social security, recognition of responsibility in case of a break up. You can be raising a child together as two unmarried partners, but at the moment things turn sour, you won't have any right on alimony etc. If your partner dies you will be also left stranded except if your partner drew up a will.

"look i have the fastest chip and 48 megapixel camera" takes picture of half eaten bagel, sends it with line...

People pay too much for new useless technology, use last year's chips, improve the software and sell it at a lower price.

Wow, it's been a while since I seriously considered a Sony! This device really almost ticks all boxes, even a 3.5mm audio jack! Whereas other companies remove these options in order to sell their accessories... The only letdown is the missing charger...another 3000 yen on top of an already pricey device. Unfortunately the apple business system cloning continues..

It does for some, it doesn't for others. I can't sleep without the soothing sound of my wife's snoring.

Swap black and white with tutsi and Hutu, swap the obsessive Christianity with Muslim extremism, and you have your own English speaking middle East. Maybe it's time for the UN to introduce a peace corps....

Well deserved, if her coach had arrived on time for the 1500 she might have gotten gold there too. On a side note, why do Japanese athletes dress so poorly, next to the Dutch and American girl, takagi looked like she was wearing grey garbage bags.

Posted in: Kishida says he is not considering COVID state of emergency for Tokyo See in context

Everyone will likely catch Omicron eventually, as long as the hospital system is able to handle it I don't see any more reason to strengthen the measures.

> Hopefully they give the healthcare workers some incentives for their heavy workloads

They won't be able to handle it, not with the amount of anti vaccers still walking around

All we give the healthcare workers is COVID, meaning that the non COVID parients will have delayed treatment or no treatment.

Two hours of calling six clinics, ending up with an appointment for four days later. Just pathetic.

Posted in: Japan to expand quasi-emergency areas as virus cases surge See in context

I reckon the amount of infections is much higher, the lack of testing facilities (it took me 2 hours of calling to find a clinic which could do a high school approved PCR test, as other tests aren't approved by the board of education) , secondly the prices varied by each clinic in the amount of 5000 yen to 10.000 yen. A family of 5 has to think twice before doing multiple tests.

Posted in: Japanese parents weigh pros, cons of having their children vaccinated See in context

So many irresponsible parents here, you don't want to vaccinate your kids? Cool, home school them, and take care of them once they get sick, because it's obvious that you don't want to put your trust in the hands of professionals. What is the anti-vax group doing about this epidemic? Right, nothing, just spreading distrust and confusion and running to the nearest hospital when their kids or themselves are getting sick. You call vaccinated people sheep.....I see it different, I see a lot of lost sheep walking around waiting till it all blows over without taking action. Wake up call; This isn't going to blow over.

Wow what an ending! Congratulations to Max, he deserved it, because of him F1 got to be interesting again whether you like his style yes or not. He got lucky, sure, but he has been unlucky lots of time this season, so no complaints there. Hamilton has next year to seek his revenge and go for that record....may next season be even more exciting;

It would be nice if whoever wins invites Kimi up to the podium for all to give him one last cheer before he retires.

That would be awesome.

I predict an easy win for Hamilton, it's a pity RB couldn't match the development of the Mercedes engine. It would be fun though if both drivers go bonkers and take it each other out, and get disqualified.....it would leave Botta or Perez to win the championship!

Posted in: F1 down to the wire in thrilling title fight See in context

At least, it is until all fun and games until Verstappen gets someone killed with his complete refusal to give way ever. A hard-charging mentality is fine, but believing you have the right to do what you like when you like crosses a line. He can never admit his faults either, which makes the whole thing a volatile combination.

Nah all top drivers are guilty of pushing it to the limit, Senna, Schumacher, prost and yes even Hamilton has had some tricks up his sleeve. Hamilton has been unchallenged for the last 7 years due to his superior car...but let us not forget Silverstone....if Hamilton becomes champion the we can always blame him for that......but we shouldn't, let the boys race, and if there's a crash, well so be it.

Best season ever! The emotions are running high with Lulu fans accusing max of reckless driving, max fans accusing Lulu of whining.... Completely forgetting that due to the nature of both drivers we finally got a nail biting finale. Would it be any fun without these two awesome drivers?

Posted in: Hamilton wins 3rd straight in chaotic Saudi Arabian F1 race See in context

A messy race, but exciting nonetheless. Still don't understand why Hamilton crashed into Verstappen's back on a straight part, he didn't brake abruptly or followed the racing line. The last race will decide the champion ship, that's how F1 should be.

Posted in: Hamilton on Saudi pole as Verstappen hits wall in 'terrible' crash See in context

When Hamilton makes a fault, he's losing his cool, when Verstappen makes a mistake he's losing his cool....can we just all agree that mistakes are made at this speed? The increased speed of the red bull and the two black cars in the front will make it an interesting race Pity Perez isn't there again to lend a hand.

Posted in: France issues arrest warrant for Japanese woman over 'parental kidnapping' See in context

Any parent who weaponises their child against the other parent is vile and have ultimately failed as a parent.

Unfortunately a very common practice here in Japan. Many Japanese lack the emotional maturity to not separate the kids from their own spousal problems.

Posted in: EU wants calm amid virus protests; rioters called 'idiots' See in context

"the government lied!"

No they didn't, they have to work with what science brings them. The people in Europe are creating a "them" Vs "us" situation, and blaming them for mishandeling the virus situation. Instead of working against your own chosen government, folks should work with them. The politicians aren't exempt to these measures and have to follow them as well and they too, would like to return to a normal life style as well. The unvaccinated folks absolutely don't bring anything to the table besides conspiracies and unrest. Work with what you have!

“I love it. I love the close battle and the pressure and the demands it puts on you and the whole team. I've thoroughly enjoyed it.”

Sure when your car is that much faster.

Still it was a faultless drive of him, so hat off. I really hope that RB will an answer for Mercedes's flat out speed or this season might end in an anti-climax.
