Aviation, interesting. Maybe I could speculate that the conspiracy theorists are right. Enjoy the freedom of intercontinental travel while you still can.

Back to topic:

Internet links for comparison of shipping and air traffic are attached.



I don't think it's worth mentioning to compare the emissions of an airplane and a supertanker.

Posted in: From K-pop to sales girls: AI goes mainstream in South Korea See in context

Personally, I think that the AI that we have been dealing with lately is only the surface of the true power of AI, which is hidden and locked away somewhere. I myself use Chat GPT and Bard, to help make the software code for trading strategies and fifty percent of the time I end up figuring it out myself. Which isn't bad after all.

After all, it was their decision. They were willing to stoop to the lowest level for easy way to fame&glory. When they realized that nothing would come of it, they are now demanding money. Come on!

A kiss and a hug. Is this a crime. Could the young lady be imagining six months of free dining in restaurants?

This is the same as in the 1950s when throwing barrels with radioactive waste in the ocean. I do not see the difference.

Hmm, when I used the bus from Emmachi station to Kamishiciken, there were mostly three to five senior citizens on it, regardless of the time of day.

Maybe, as many times before, the crew's recklessness and the execution of maneuvers that they are not up to. The result is a direct impact into the water at approximately 350 km/h.

Posted in: Attack in Wakayama raises alarm about VIP security weeks before G7 summit See in context

Based on the video I watched, the whole thing seemed to me like some kind of rehearsal before the start of the summit. But I did not understand why the suspect was being carried from one corner to another and that five people could barely move the man.

Wonder why the cops showed up after someone called 119? That's the number for the ambulance not the cops! Cops are 110!

In some countries, when first aid is called, the police are notified at the same time

Posted in: Japan eyes higher corporate, tobacco taxes to fund defense spending See in context

If you want spend more funds on the military and thereby increase the production of domestic military equipment or any equipment needed for defense purposes, it is understandable to some extent.
