@Big Yen

Thank you for your answer.

I understand.

I hope the situation in Australia will be back to normal soon and that all of you can go back to your daily life and especially enjoy life.

Hang on Man.

@BigYen

I remember that you told me a while ago, that the Australians like that situation of restrictions, lockdowns...

You said the Australians are happy like it is.

Do you still back up your opinion?

I am just asking out of curiosity, because I am curious to know how the Australians are thinking about how their government is handling the things.

At 8pm I will be in my Mom and Pops Izakaya and I guess the opening ceremony is running on their TV.

So I will also watch it a little bit.

Good thing is, I can bring my own Sake there and so probably around 9pm I am already drunk.

She is scheduled to meet Emperor Naruhito along with other guests at the Imperial Palace on Friday

It is nice to go out, when the population of Tokyo is requested to stay home.

How about dinner?

Was it Take out?

Did you stop alcohol after 7pm?

14 days Quarantine?

Who in the US will ever listen to her anymore, after getting treated like a princess during a SOE.

Today is holiday, but even so I am on my way to work.

But at least I enjoy the empty trains today.

Probably the same idiotic experts like these WHO idiot, who also gave a totaly useless statement yesterday or the day before ( according an article here).

Posted in: Tokyo's drinkers drown frustrations over virus restrictions, Olympics See in context

From the beginning I didnt understand this alcohol restriction at bars and restaurants as a prevention against Corona.

Look at the coffee shops!

Each coffee shop is fully packed, especially with groups of young women, telling their life and love stories to each other, shouting, laughing...

What is the different between that and a bar or a restaurant?

The situation is the same.

Just in one place it is coffee and in the other place it is beer.

But the situation for Corona is the same.

I dont see any big problem here.

Yes, I mean he should follow the quarantine rule and stay in the Olympic bubble, because people coming for the Olympics are supposed to stay in the Olympic village.

But on other side, what was he thinking?

Just go out and get hired easily by someone?

Just with a short time Visa?

And anyway with his visa he is not allowed to work in Japan, right? (I am not sure about the rules these days)

Posted in: Japan prepares for a surreal Olympics, and plenty of questions See in context

Will the normally hospitable Japanese people warm to the visitors?

Some yes, some no.

I guess that all foreigners will be judged as Olympic related people.

Even foreigners who are living here and are zero related to the Olympics will look suspicious to the japanese people.

Will they bring in variants that will spread through Japan?

I am not sure.

As long as everyone stays in the bubble, it should be OK.

But unfortunately rules were broken already. Which answers the other question;

Will the Olympians and others play by the rules meant to protect the country they’re visiting?

Unfortunately there are always black sheeps among the herd.

We get the picture, sport.

No need to keep repeating it.

OK, I will stop.

But sometimes you have to repeat things, because people dont get it at the first time or even second time...

And that the people get my picture was important for me.

Posted in: Internet misinformation fans COVID vaccine hesitancy among Japanese young people See in context

Let me repeat again:

Everybody should decide by themselves to take the vaccine or not.

If rational people, like Virusrex mentioned, are thinking the vaccines are safe, OK then go ahead and blindly take it.

At the end everyone is responsible for his or her own life, body and action.

If side effects, short term or long term or whatever, are coming up, and if they come up, they also come up for the rational people, there is no one to blame except yourself. Because you decide by your own to take it.

It is exctly like Tokyo-Engr said,

I am aware of the fact there are risks in the choice I made

And that also counts for me!

Therefore I decided to take my 2 shots of the vaccine.

If I got side-effects, I can not blame anyone, just myelf, because I decided to take it.

But I would never ever urge or recommend anyone to take the vaccine.

This decision should be done by each human personally.

And one more time:

Nobody should be blamed for not taking the vaccine!

Posted in: Internet misinformation fans COVID vaccine hesitancy among Japanese young people See in context

hey are hugely safer than not vaccinating.

But that doesn't automacially means that vaccines are safe.

Because you don't clearly answer my question with Yes, shows me, that you also know that there are possible side effects, light or strong, short term or long term, which can come up with the vaccines.

Like I said, everyone should take that in consideration and should decide by themselves to take the vaccine or not.

Nobody should blame people for thinking carefully about possible side effects.

And nobody should blame people for refusing a vaccine, because they are worried or scared about possible side effects.

@virusrex

I have the feeling that you by yourself don't know what is correct and what not.

It seems that you are confused by yourself.

In an upper post you said, vaccines are safe, and now you say vaccines do not have to be "perfectly" safe, nothing is.

So what now?

Are vaccines safe or not?

Especially the Covid vaccines...

Yes or No?

Posted in: Internet misinformation fans COVID vaccine hesitancy among Japanese young people See in context

In my opinion, everybody should decide by themselves to take the vaccine or not.

And everybody should take possible side effects and dangers coming from the vaccine into deep consideration.

To follow blindly what so called experts are telling us is completely stupid.

If they tell you, jump into the sumida river, that is the best vaccination you can get, will you do that?

I dont think so.

And saying, the vaccine is safe, and down playing side effects like menstruation problems (tell that to all women, who has already menstruation problems), is stupid and dangerous.

And saying the vaccine is safe, is a good example for spreading missinformation.

Nothing is safe. No vaccine, no medicine, no surgery is safe.

If so, there would not be a long side letter about side effects coming with all medicine you get, there would be no signature before surgery...and so on.

So everybody should consider deeply, if he or she takes the vaccine or not.

Me, I decided to take it.

I got my first shot already, and I will get my second shot in 2 weeks.

And everybody I know, here in Japan and in my home country, who got already the 2nd shot, had a very hard time after it for about 2-3 days.

But I know that, and I am OK with taking that.

I dont think that the Olympics will be canceled because:

Point 1:

Experts say Japanese roaming around during their summer vacations and the Olympics could be a greater risk than athletes and other participants

Point 2:

It is anyay already too late to cancel the Olympics.

Posted in: Many people seem to be tired of staying home, or feel more at ease due to their perception that vaccinations are progressing. See in context

@Virusrex

An expert should NOT say that he has no concern that a person visit the Olympics.

An expert should NOT say that the Olympics is at a lower risk than people are traveling during summer vacation.

A "good" health expert should do a proper and clear stand AGAINST the Olympics.

And a "good" health expert should not only think about just one person, he should think about the complete situation he sends this person in.

And to call someone an expert, this person needs a long years experience and studies about the topic he calls himself an expert.

How can you call someone an expert for a thing that is brand new in this world?

Nobody has any experience with this Virus.

But always when a new "thing" appears in the world, hundreds of self nominated experts appears and bring their "opinions" to the public.

It is up to everyone, how serious to take these opinions.

Today one poster said a good thing to one of your posts.

When the British variant appeared, many expert screamed, "Ah, very very dangerous"...and then later on, they were proved wrong.

But I can not blame then, because nobody had any experience with the British variant.

But let me clear one point:

I am not against all experts.

I just don't like people who called themselves and nominate themselves as an expert without any experience on the field they called themselves as an expert.

And for the COVID 19-fields, there can not be any experts, because it is brand new.

Passengers on board were informed in the early hours that a guest had tested positive

A good example for what I said here millions of times here, a negative test is just for the moment.

Before boarding negative, on board positiv.
