Posted in: What is umami, the mysterious taste of Japanese cooking? See in context

> I like Japanese food as much as the next person, but when I first heard someone say that it has a taste all its own, one so distinct it warrants its very own adjective, I was pretty skeptical.

I am still skeptical. The food here is great but not better than food anywhere else in the world and I have more experience eating food from around the world than probably 99.9%;of the population. Just more hubris from the "humble."

I definitely definitely definitely don't understand wanting a FIFTY-year-old woman's underwear.

> You'll mature one day! I don't particularly have a fetish for underwear, bur what's wrong with a fifty year old woman?

You're joking, right? Her age is what's wrong. Halve it and then we can talk! I won't down vote you though because somebody has to want them!

I definitely don't understand that fetish. I definitely definitely definitely don't understand wanting a FIFTY-year-old woman's underwear. He needs some serious help.

The disappearance of Julius Ssekitoleko came at a time of high public concern over coronavirus risks as thousands of foreigners arrive for the Games

Thousands of foreigners who arrived with no virus and won't get anywhere near the public, but we all know how this works. How many cases were there in Tokyo outside of the Olympic Village this week?

Pogacar is tough as nails and those mountain stage victories were tremendous. Too bad for the Missile though, but maybe he comes back and gets the stages title next year. Great Tour.

Posted in: Olympics worker arrested for allegedly raping woman at stadium See in context

Women don't suddenly get a hankering to have sex voluntarily with men they only just met hours ago, in a public place, during their work hours. This does not happen

You should speak only for yourself.

Posted in: Sleep, if you know what’s healthy for you See in context

I was always sleep-deprived during my teens through to my forties due to being a night person with loads of energy who never felt tired until it was time to go to bed at three a.m. or so. I do believe that caught up with me and was one of the underlying factors in me getting a life-threatening disease. Nowadays, I still don't sleep enough but I get much more than before and I don't take it for granted. I try to slip in forty winks during the daytime whenever I can. Definitely helps with weight management too. I also focus on the intestinal microbiome by consuming lots of different types of yogurt, kefir, etc. Glad I lived long enough to find out and get a good understanding.

Talk about real skeletons in your closet itching to come outside! The owner was probably thinking there might be some old clothes, a belt, maybe a kimono inside but definitely an old man.

Well, it's good he didn't think it was hard enough to kill her. How considerate of him to use a less forceful blow. Take a few months off his sentence because I do think he should go to jail.

Goodbye and good riddance. Why have a statue of a traitor to Union in the first place? Don't like it then just secede again and don't come back.

Removing a piece of history from American history

There's a lot of American history that isn't represented by statues and that statue represents Southern secessionist history. It does NOT represent the UNITED STATES. It represents the Confederate states.

Posted in: Man arrested for organizing rally of 200 motorcycle riders, motorists See in context

Not a cop in sight more than likely. Probably arrested days later him while he was pouring concrete at the genba. These incidents happen with regularity especially on Saturdays and Sundays on that road and there's almost never a cop around. Suspended sentence at best with maybe a "stern warning" like this: You can participate but don't be the organizer.

So, up to now Toyota was just as foolish as the idiots who swore the election was stolen but had no proof. Just more evidence that being great in one field doesn't mean you are a genius in anything else.

Posted in: What's your favorite coffee shop chain in Japan? See in context

Starbucks sells mostly sweets that are supposed to be coffee. Doutor is very skimpy, doesn't come close to giving you a full cup and usually has tiny overcrowded shops. Excelsior is OK and the staff are usually very courteous but Tully's is the best for coffee. They also have nice modern locations around the main stations and there's one where the female staff are hotter than the coffee. Keeps me coming back.

He hits home runs against the Yankees and we get a story. He gets shelled for seven runs in one inning and there's no story. He definitely deserves the all-star nod but I'm glad to see the story hold off on the Babe Ruth comparisons.
