Posted in: As anger rises, Muslims worldwide protest French cartoons See in context

And people are worried about Covid-19? Islamic extremism is the most dangerous plague we face. Its origin is not a wet market in Wuhan but the mosques and religious schools in Saudi and Pakistan.

Posted in: Tokyo 2020 announces refund policy for ticket buyers in Japan See in context

They keep the misinformation on overseas “fans” going with no accurate information on foreign ticket sales. The real reason is because “olympic fans” are only in the imagination of the organisers to try to persuade the public that money can be made.

Hosting the olympics is a total waste of money.... A sad shame for Japan’s tax payers.

Its long overdue for right minded patriots of France and other parts of Europe to take a stand and claim back their countries.... before its too late.

I fear it already is.

Lets hope Japan keeps these “workers” on short term visas and not make the mistake that many European countries did by allowing them to stay for ever.

Top tip for the terminal sad cases...

Go home, take a bath, light some charcoal brackets and die in peace without bothering others!

Posted in: What is your favorite Japanese beer? See in context

All the above beers are the same style of beer... Thats the problem with Japanese beers...almost all bottom fermented “lager” style beers. The supermarkets then import some foreign beers of the same kind. Or worse brewed under licence...

Most bars and shops in Europe will have at least 8 different beer varieties not just brands of the same generic rice beer.

This is precisely why the UK has so many cases. Simple rules and guidelines being ignored not just by rugby players under the spotlight but thousands of ordinary people day after day.

Heathrow airport has started testing, results in one hour for a fee of 80 pounds or about ¥11,000.... Why the ¥40,000 Japan?

Nice try to get his sentence reduced.... It seems that he preferred his son dead rather than a “deadbeat”. He got his wish now get on with the time.

Posted in: Tokyo ward assemblyman apologizes for remarks against LGBT rights See in context

Stop all the fake outrage..... All he said was “If everyone was gay the birth rate would drop.” Obviously a true statement. I doubt he is a campaigner for the LGBT community but neither are many others. He has the right to his views as much as you do to yours.

The electorate have the chance to vote him out but I expect that to most people LGBT is not very high on their list of priorities.

Posted in: Japanese KitKats are shrinking; Nestlé says previous size may have been too large for customers See in context

Joanne...where is back home?

UK Kit-kats are very similar to Japan taste for the regular chocolate variety. Australian ones are not so good, chocolate has a higher melting point and poor texture.

Nestle are just following a trend... Pringles are now in a much smaller tube and Boursin cheese lost 25% a few years back...Both kept the same price.

Most countries could learn from China how to conduct a death penalty. Trial, if convicted a speedy bullet in the back of the head behind the jail. Job done.

A student many years ago who explained that she was in her sports wear because “someone” on the train had thrown “something” on her skirt. I didn’t ask for details...

This is more frequent than you may imagine!

Posted in: Japan to release treated Fukushima water into sea, media report See in context

Great news. Common sense prevails at last. This was ALWAYS the only solution. They have done a really bad job of educating people on what this water actually is and how “dangerous” it isn’t.

Sad for the vehicle owners as they won’t be insured either.

I hope they will also pander to other religions in the same way.

No fish on Friday so as not to offend the Catholics.

No beef for the Hindus

No animal products at all for the Jains

No pork for the Jews

I could go on.....

The best thing about Japanese school lunch was that everybody got the same. No fuss

If they demand Hydroyxcloroquine then give it to them. If they die.... Their choice. If they refuse to wear a mask or turn up in a net “mask”... no treatment. If you want to put yourself at risk fine. You have no right to risk others. Your life isn’t that valuable.

Posted in: Japanese actress Suzu Hirose infected with coronavirus See in context

Maybe, just maybe celebrities are spending a lot of their time greeting and meeting? Wining and dining? Close contact in groups? And maybe their names are published in articles like this one? How many of the 27,000 Tokyo residents to have had the virus were celebrities?

Of course there are many unknown and unreported cases, especially those without symptoms, but there isn't a huge number of serious case being hidden. So lets stop the conspiracy nonsense. Anyone with symptoms can fairly easily get a test done.
