After all the repression around the world related to deadly covid for the last two years, from now on it will be less dangerous than the flu?

Who's kidding who here?

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.

But if you burden the citizens with more taxes, and the equipment supplier from a foreign country gets the money, it's downright silly.

Since when do the Yakuza deal with the statements of a fourteen-year-old on a social network? I think he will have to return his membership card.

In the event that a thief becomes a murderer for a few yen, the investigation must be taken very seriously and not given up until he is caught.

Posted in: EU ministers to study call for ban on Russian tourists See in context

I'm from the EU. We have become a victim of the duel between the USA and Russia, and while we're at it, let's sink the EU economy and standards a little more. The USA is once again solving its financial crisis at foreign expense, but this time in a more sophisticated way. I have no words for the puppet European leaders. Hello cold winter.

Posted in: Japan reports 166,205 coronavirus cases; 23,511 in Tokyo See in context

As I see, the topic of the posts is about vaccination and its effect. Let me tell you about my experience. Somehow half of my acquaintances are vaccinated and half are not. I'm not vaccinated either. We all got over covid. I was infected by a vaccinated person. This person recovered with a slightly more severe course. Younger than me. That's how it is.

However, how much vaccination helps, based on the daily number of new infections, should be evaluated by each individual.

Posted in: 70 Japanese volunteer to fight for Ukraine against Russia See in context

So the Russians invaded Ukraine, without any resistance from the Ukrainian army. And with all the media pomp what a patriotic spirit they have? Do not say that the Ukrainian army does not have the equipment to fight. It is just a sign that someones interest is that the war will drag on, people will suffer, and some will get very rich. You can read Yenki like a book.

@theResident: Ha! You asked the right question. The official PCR test was positive. You convinced me to go for an antibody test (20 €). If the antibodies turn out not to be present, well....., then we can imagine what a charade it is all together. Stay well!
