Maybe Aso can serve some of that treated water to his colleagues during the hot summer days. I'm sure they'll guzzle it down quickly.

Dumbest comment ever from a guy known for dumb comments. There must be a manual somewhere in the Diet that instructs them on how to firmly insert one's foot in one's mouth because Japanese politicians really excel at that.

Posted in: Man robbed of ¥3 mil on Nagoya street See in context

Police said the man works for a store that deals in antiques and used items. He said he received an email from a potential seller who had asked him to come and have a look at some items for sale, which is why he had so much cash in his bag.

No connection. Just an incredible coincidence. Yeah.

Whenever you don't like someone or something, just pull out a gun and start shooting. It's the American way, propped up by corrupt uncaring "lawmakers" and the NRA. Start the timer until the next mass shooting happens. It's a sad state of affairs with no end in sight.

Funny, how everyone now trusts the numbers.

I, for one, NEVER trusted any of the numbers as both the number of cases and deaths have been seriously fudged. It's the usual way things are done, however, I do trust the numbers now more accurately reflect the reality.

Maybe the meaning has changed but didn't 7-11 mean they were open from seven to eleven? The guy seems to have had a valid reason to close but the corporation is being prickly. Hard to find a Japanese person who will act against management so I agree with and salute this guy.

Posted in: Saitama officially forbids walking up and down escalators See in context

The ordinance, which will take effect next October, also requires places with escalators to put signage asking riders to refrain from walking or running on the machines.

No punishment and no enforcement. A dog with no bite, like most ordnances. Tonight, I'll go and stand by a no smoking sign and see how many smokers are standing doing their thing as usual.

Police said they had been called to the house twice in the past after Miura complained that Wada had been violent toward her when he was drunk.

Fixed that problem but a prison cell should still be in her future.

Posted in: New ‘2-on-1’ style online lessons look to turn 'eikawa' business on its head See in context

it offers a way forward for learners stymied by the way English is usually taught in Japan.

The teaching is not the main problem. A book and/or a method is no guarantee for success. The more you speak and practice, the better you should get and the more confidence you acquire. With two native speakers, how much speaking time does the student really get?

Japanese tend to feel isolated no matter what the situation and the whole world is scary or you are scary or they are nervous, etc I have not seen a place where people clam up so easily once they are in a different setting. You have to want to be a part of the action and if you don't the action continues on without you.

What a stiff shock! The guy must be nine feet tall or extra extra wide if she figured he wouldn't fit into a pine box. Was she going for a DIY coffin or what? Don't know how anyone could put up with the smell or sight of a corpse for several days much less weeks or months. This is "Weekend at Bernie's" type of stuff and our news of the weird for today.. Psych eval for her immediately.

Not blaming the kid but how often do we see people on bikes making bad decisions ....................just saying

> jeez - we’re talking about a kid here. Kids will always make mistakes. It’s part of being a kid and learning about the world. They should never have to pay with their lives for their mistake. Instead of blaming the victim, better to put the blame on a society that puts the convenience of drivers over the lives of children - as 43% of car trips in Japan are less than 5 kms(so often unnecessary) and traffic violence is one of the leading cause of death of kids.

While I agree with some of this and we all do surely agree that NO ONE should have to pay for this kind of mistake with their life, sometimes drivers get put in a position of not having enough time or space to avoid a collision. We don't know the complete details of what happened but I do agee that people on bicycles - not to be confused with a cyclist - tend to make bad decisions like not wearing helmets or listening to music while riding and almost never think they have to stop. They expect drivers to avoid them no matter what and that is not always possible. RIP to the young boy.

Posted in: Darvish speaks out about anti-Asian racism in America See in context

Good on him and I truly hate to see any kind of discrimination. Trump really fanned the flames against all minorities and I have been really upset to see a lot of other minorities perpetrating crimes against Asians. It's gotten really bad in my hometown of NYC. It's 2021 but it seems like the world has not progressed at all. We have smartphones and stupid people all over the place.
