Posted in: Maisa Tsuno of Japanese rock band Akaiko-en dies in apparent suicide See in context

Corona media works its way into everyone’s life. I can’t say why this person chose to end her life. But somehow, I think it’s overall a corona effect.

Rest in peace.

Posted in: Catching coronavirus outside is rare but not impossible See in context

Most people seen wearing masks outside - for example riding a scooter etc. - are just doing that because it’s a nuisance to put on or take off with dropping into stores etc.

” Hard to believe that people in Victoria are standing for this”

Yeah. Especially since there are videos of people beaten into submission there. It may be difficult to organize major protests.

But then, I don’t know how the whole world either is standing for this blanket destruction of our lives by world gov’t agreements.

Such a strong guy - and leader. An inspiration to those facing or afraid of having to face a Covid diagnosis.

Nothing wrong with that, people.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 203 new coronavirus cases See in context

If the number of cases is actually much higher than reported, than that means - considering the very low daily deaths - that the virus is even less dangerous to life than previously thought.

Posted in: Typhoon expected to bring heavy rain, strong winds over weekend See in context

This typhoon is basically a miserable cold rain soaker. And it’s drifting away from Japan - actually turning southeast. Very unusual. But good news for those fearing wind damage.

Posted in: Teacher arrested for sexually assaulting teenage girl in hotel See in context

Why doesn’t this article say the age of the girl? Is she 14? 16? 18?

Not enough details. Did he really punch her? We’re there bruises etc.?

Of course, they cannot give the girl’s name. But they should not give the teacher’s name either, considering there’s such sketchy information.

This is a case of Japanese saying what they don’t really believe to be true. That is tatemae. Japanese can do it. Westerners cannot do it - If Westerners say something, they’ve a pressure to actually believe it. That’s why political correctness is not as dangerous in Japan as it is in the US, for example.

It’s still disgusting, though.

Oh yeah. And let’s get more black sumo wrestlers into sumo in Japanese tournaments. And let’s have street demos until they are represented ( even if they aren’t really interested!)

Posted in: Japan may see resurgence of coronavirus cases, experts warn See in context

Yeah, hype it up. Scare people in case they get happy.

In Canada news ( also a country with low incidence), they like to show an interview with a person in a hospital warning people. I’ve never once seen an article interviewing someone who has it explaining how they’re making their symptoms better and keeping their chin up.

Never once!

The continued destruction of the economy and of small business around the world.

By the pandemic? No! By the people who are handling the situation. Handling our lives. And if you criticize, they’ll say you’re only interested in money - as if you were sitting around counting banknotes - and not about people’s families and livelihoods being destroyed.

” I wonder how many down with COVID vs. how many down with heat stroke”

Exactly right. Such huge numbers of those heat stroke victims in ambulances that we saw and heard all summer. Taken so casually.

From being a great movie maker, Spike Lee went to total self-consumption by his anti-white racism. I’m sorry. I really did enjoy his movies - She’s Gotta Have It, Do The Right Thing and others. Sad.

Further to my above post:

And this number of COVID deaths is not permanent. It will decrease or disappear someday. However, the other deaths are from causes that will not disappear, even though there are many things which could be done to decrease them. But nobody complains about it.

So get over yourselves and live your life and let others live theirs as they want to.

Posted in: Trump revels at Michigan rally as thousands defy coronavirus safety rules See in context

There would have been 200,000 dead anyway. It’s the nature of dynamic America to have high numbers in its 335,000,000. Ask yourself if Biden could do anything to lower deaths/day. Anything?

Anyway, how many people die every day in America? You don’t know. Well, I’ll tell you. Over 6,000. We’ve lived with losing 6,000 a day up to now. Well, so now it’s 7. And probably many of those are actually dying from their original ailment anyway, but happened to be COVID positive at death.

She was the very classy tough-sexy secret agent in The Avengers with the older, crispy but humorous agent John Steed.

She just called him, “Steed”

He called her, “ Mrs. Peel”.

I liked that.

Posted in: Tokyo to end shorter hours for bars; virus alert to be lowered See in context

Having fun spreads the virus. So bars etc. are out.

Laughing spreads the virus. So, socializing is out.

Mask covers my smile. That’s half communication. They can’t cover the eyes. Well, they could force goggles, I guess.

The living dead.

But online life supporting mega-billionaires.

I said “No” to two men in a car that pulled up beside me. I was a boy of 6 years old. I almost went, but I knew something was wrong. And in broad daylight.

That’s a long time ago. I sometimes wonder what would have happened.

Why do they put the ages of the two people? Because they want you to be more enraged because the man is much older?

Yes. Old Japanese men who go up on the roof to fix tiles in a typhoon: I would like them to get less news coverage. And little children who die from parental neglect should get MORE coverage. That should REALLY be big news.

JMA online weather site: This is the best weather information site that I have seen anywhere. I’m from North America. Nothing there is as good as this site. Too bad it’s only national. I wish it were for all countries worldwide.

Stories of neglectful single mothers, out drinking, slaves to their obnoxious new boyfriends. Their little kids dying as a result.

This is happening in Japan all the time. I’m so disgusted. DISGUSTED! And we have to hear that Japan is such a safe country, but why do these crimes go on all the time!

Somebody, DO something! This is so sickening.

Stay safe, everyone.

Typhoon is coming to Kyushu. They’ve had typhoons lots of times before, but need reminders to stay safe.

And in case, you’re thinking of going out in the storm, please remember - stay safe.

And coronavirus is around and you may forget about that.

So, I just want to tell everyone one thing.

Stay safe.

Re: “stay safe”

People don’t resent this. It’s just that it’s such an obvious thing. They are not little children.

Also, people are irritated by the constant “stay safe” message associated with the virus.
