Kabuki actor Ennosuke, who assisted his parents’ suicide, walked free. He’ll probably be back on stage in a year or two. It’s not fair.

Yep I was having the same exact thought

other countries wouldn't elect a black President or PM

England, Belgium, Iceland to name a few have multi-racial or LGBTQ prime ministers. America is only unique in making a fuss about electing a colored president. Maybe you better compare your country with Afghanistan, Yemen just to name a few countries where daily shootings are an order of the day, and women will never be able to run for presidency.

Posted in: Argentina beats France on penalties to win World Cup See in context

Nasty team won the world cup as wished by FIFA. The whole road up to the final has been in Messi's favor. But they played a great first half, of course helped by a disputable pk. I just wished people stopped calling people the "goat", it just creates blind followers.

Posted in: Messi ready for fitting World Cup farewell See in context

Messi, Messi, somehow the world is rooting for him to get world cup...no matter how. Dirty tactics, falling on the ground like dramatic ballerina's, an obnoxious crowd, whistling like hooligans any time the opponent has the ball. This will be all forgiven once they win....god I hope they lose, if they display this behavior tonight.

Posted in: Japanese gov't wants to give people an extra ¥80,000 to have babies See in context

First revise the Japanese education business scam. Everything about this educational system is created so that some parties earn big bucks. If it isn't the obligatory uniform, than its the cram schools which without make it close to impossible to enter a proper university. Public universities are a dime a dozen with ridiculous entrance exams, and the private universities cost up to 1.5 million a year, which Japanese parents feel obligated to pay for. This government is blind l, stupid and deaf,..the whole baby to junior high school part is not what is worrying young parents....it's the part after that.

Posted in: France beats England 2-1 to advance to semifinals See in context

It was what it was, the best game of the tournament. Two attacking high quality teams and a fairly good referee. I think he kept the game well in hand with a "let them play" and not a "handbrake" attitude. Both teams could have won, with France the more technically gifted and England the more passionate team. From here on it will only go down. Morocco and Croatia are both hard working teams but just don't play at the same level as the top teams. Argentina will use any dirty trick available to win, to give Messi his missing medal and the arbitrage will let them. England/France should have been the final...

Posted in: Argentina beats Netherlands in penalty shootout See in context

Lionel Messi is peaking at the right time. Outstanding footballer who has the ability to take his side higher up in world football. Well played Argentina.

It's not his ability, it's his brand name.

Posted in: Argentina beats Netherlands in penalty shootout See in context

I was thoroughly disgusted by this Argentinian team and the referee. The Dutch team were playing against 12 men against 11. Messi is calling out the referee on the news, conveniently ignoring the fact that he got away with a clear hands ball. The Argentinians got away with a red card too. Pity, I used to be Messi's biggest fan, but seeing him falling down like a one-legged muppet every time a Dutch defender got close and his whining made me lose it all. As for the continuees whistling during the game anytime a Dutch player was on the ball, well that showed the level of thuggery in the stands and on the pitch. Pity Brasil is gone, pity Spain is gone, I can't believe Argentine can continue.

Posted in: Riots in Belgium, Netherlands after Morocco's win at World Cup See in context

To be clear; the rioters were young Moroccan lads. There has been a huge problem

with these youngsters in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Raised without the strict islam family rules and exposed to western freedom created a

generation of uncontrollable young thugs. They have Dutch/Belgian citizen ship so they can't

be shipped back to a country which doesn't have the need for them anyway.

Well this has also to do with the fact that some airlines charge you now to check in luggage. 20.000 yen plus is a lot of money.

These poor people are left on their own, taking care of their ailing partners, while the government completely ignores this problem. The amount of "killings" is astonishing, it's time to open the door for euthanasia wider and stop ignoring the problem.

I'm definitely going to watch this. The Rock is the Rock, no matter what movie he's in. You know what you're going to get and that is in some way very relaxing. For the same reason I used to watch all Swarzenegger movies and watch all Ryan Reynolds movies. I have enough drama in my life as it is.

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.

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..

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.

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.
