Posted in: Fujifilm to restart clinical trial of Avigan to treat COVID-19: report See in context

Good!

Treatments talk is needed talk. Everything these days is masks, vaccine, masks, vaccine.

Look, if treatments are good then people will be less scared of the disease. And then less panic about mobility.

Uh-oh. Think I just answered my own question, didn’t I? They don’t want us to be mobile!!

How about silent walking too? Then, they will have completely succeeded in another step towards total control of people by using the virus. After all, robots don’t talk either.

He didn’t mock .those people. This is taken out of context in his programming. And it was done to defend conservative policy which was attacked under cover of pandering sympathy for certain individuals. He didn’t attack unprovoked.

You’ll never have a normal life if you get slammed into lockdown every time a small cluster occurs.

Posted in: Japan to start COVID vaccinations next week despite syringe shortage See in context

Always amazed by Japan’s fastidiousness to detail. But syringe capacity doesn’t seem very difficult (6? 5?).

Most Japanese obsession to detail doesn’t involve danger.

This one will cost lives! Who’s accountable?

Do you really expect we’ll ever know?

Are the numbers played with?

Sure - but to make us feel the situation is worse than it is. I check worldometer every day. It’s really strange.

My basic conspiracy theory:

Someone (thing) wants to make sure the left and right can never make peace again. In other words, irreparably broken.

What a joke. You wouldn’t have given Biden the time of day a year ago. Now you have to pretend you like him and celebrate him. Awful.

An alarm? What do you mean by an “alarm”?

Do you mean like in George Orwell’s “1984”?

Yeah. They’re the same old guys who get up roofs to adjust tiles in typhoons.

OnTheTrail One of the nicest snow adventures for me used to be taking the Joetsu Line from Tokyo up to Niigata prefecture when a snowy cold wave hits. You go through this long tunnel and suddenly come out at Yuzawa. Everybody on the train goes, “ WHAA..”. It’s great.

You can get an idea of the mentality of readership on here by the fact that a simple short comment like:

” They should be able to think what they like”

gets a barrage of down votes.

Lots of comments to read regarding corona virus. But all I have to do is look at which comments gather a -10 rating and which gather a plus 10 rating, and I already know what their sentiments will be.

Same about sweets. Sugary sweets! - Not so much buttery sweets because that costs more for production.

Compare Starbucks food menu here with elsewhere. Unless it’s a sandwich, everything is sweet. Young women here just love those sweets! And Starbucks is geared to the young female market.

And they will give you one little napkin. Because Japanese - especially women - eat so slowly and delicately that they hardly need a napkin at all.

Me? I would use 10-15 napkins, plus tissues brought from home.

If it wasn’t sufficiently obvious already, I wasn’t asking for a point-by-point guidance. I was asking for opinions as to the complicated procedures involved in getting such a vaccine.

So, here in Japan.

To the “wait a little longer people”, I want to ask how are you going to get this vaccine when it does come out? How long is the line going to be?

And if asking if a person is a smoker, would you ask how often? Some people might smoke 20-40 cigs a day. Some people might have one cig a day. Big difference!

“Do you/Don’t you” questions with everything now leads to the us-vs.-them mentality you have in societies today.

Well, obviously if everyone stays alone in a hole, the numbers will go down. Until....

Like everything in nature, the virus actually does have a certain intelligence of sorts. It seeks to spread itself.

They don’t bring it down. It just waits around till people come outside in a weaker condition. Or, your lockdown will just make it go somewhere else where people are outside.

How about this idea. Lockdowns only extend the virus’s presence. The more we lock down, the more it just moves around to kill people elsewhere. Why would we think that lockdowns can trick a disease into disappearing?

Humans are so arrogant and egotistical.

Posted in: Major floods in Manila as typhoon batters Philippines See in context

Actually, the Philippines gets 20 typhoons/year on average. And this is the time of year when they’re more likely to occur. So, this high number is not that strange - if you check records. Do you check records?

I’m not a climate change denier. Causes? Partly. And what can be done? Absolutely. It’s interesting how COVID-19 supporters of lockdowns are also supporters of costly accords on who-knows-what to “fix” climate change.

Nature is nature, people. And the Left never was interested in the weather until it was juice for political arguments.

Am I invisible? Am I dreaming?

I said 7 deaths out of 125,000,000 ( Everyone talking cases, never deaths)

And that doesn’t get a comment, pro or con?
