Unsure how this affects my plan to move to Ashgabat ......
Same here. They don't call Ashbagat “city of the dead” for no reason.

It's like a one-party system here (Japan), like China. Only difference is that China gets things done.
If that's the only difference you see between Japan and China you might want to look just a wee bit harder.

The comments about the need for more baby hatches, etc. are generally valid but you've got to ask yourself if a woman so callous as to murder her newborn baby isn't so inherently evil (or damaged) as to make that issue academic.

That country will never change their love for guns over people. They believe in thoughts and prayers .
And what do the lucky denizens of the garden spot you call home believe in: a failed welfare state and dangerously inbred royalty?

What exactly is the objective of providing "hundreds of millions of dollars in new aid"?

"Yeah, you'd think those decades of drone bombing would've taught them some peace eh..."

Will I need to wear a quasi-mask? Will Quasimodo now be the Olympic mascot?

Really? What we actually know is that men wearing dresses are real.

Posted in: U.S. President Joe Biden is expected to nominate former Chicago Mayor Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel as ambassador to Japan. Which do you think is more important for incoming ambassadors: To be well connected to their country's leader or to have a good knowledge of the country they are going to? See in context
What a horrible insult to Japan on the part of Biden's caregivers.
There's nothing wrong with political appointees to such an important position. Walter Mondale and Tom Foley both did an admirable job. The fear is that the man who presided so impotently over Chicago's homicide festival will fail miserably.
