I can't understand the animosity toward people who just want equal rights. They aren't asking for new or special rights, just the same rights that everyone else enjoys.

can still remember the first time i heard eruption. it gave me the goosebumps...and it still does so today.

and i love the kravitz quote.

btw, the article implies that autodidactism is somehow similar to being a genius, but the term simply means self-taught/self-educated. furthermore, this contradicts the line about him being a classically trained pianist, why means he received training.

Posted in: Japan's top court sides with tattoo artist in test case See in context

In my opinion it would be hard for a judge or the SC to agree with the prosecutors, as to do so would be to deny the long and rich culture and history surrounding tattooing here in Japan.

Utter nonsense. Did you even read what the case was about? It was about the need for tattoo artists to be licensed as doctors. Nothing at all to do with denying the long history of tattooing in Japan. Geezus.

i don't know how these brick and mortor electronics stores manage to stay open. whenever i have gone into this labi denki, it was always dead, with a handful of customers on each floor. the same for every other electronics store in the area.

Hey Einstein, here's a thought: hate your father? then move out. You're 41 years-old for crying out loud. I hope your cell mate will look and act exactly as your dad did. Karma is a b!

 but I'll just assume that the grandpa probably lost his patience for taking care of his grand daughter.

normal people don't just kill others when they lose their patience. you make it sound like it's a perfectly natural thing to do and that it's the girl's fault. smgfh.

Posted in: PM candidate Kishida cautious about cutting sales tax See in context

It would be tax deductible and the cost is not significant when you consider the over all situation, but then this is the logic of a person in govt in Japan so what clue would they have about anything.

This is what's called myopic thinking. You only seek to remedy the current problem by cutting the consumption tax, but you fail to see the long term problems that this would entail. Reducing the consumption tax benefits the needy now, but kicks the problem of paying for rising health care costs and pension down the road. In a way, you prefer instant gratification instead of solving long-term entrenched problems. So perhaps you and your ilk are a more serious problem with logic than kishida.

my goodness. he is perhaps the world's worst public speaker. his tone and intonation are horrible. he jumbles the words and his sideways lean in the the mic is just awful to look at.

the speech itself was a rehash of what he has said again and again. what a waste of time. at least he could have come up with a new nickname for biden, but nope. i had to turn it off after 30 minutes.

Posted in: Abe set to resign, citing worsening health See in context

you should start a new thread or delete the previous comments when the story changes. it makes the first group of comments look clueless as to what is going on.

Aso would be next in line constitutionally i think, but whether he accepts it would be a different story.

Posted in: Medical staff, elderly should get COVID vaccination first: task force See in context

Why in the world should the elderly get priority? To prolong their lives for another few years? People who contract the disease in their 20s-40s could have medical complications for the rest of their remaining lives. We should not just think about saving lives but saving the quality of lives for those who live.

Posted in: Hong Kong activist Agnes Chow thanks Japanese for support See in context

Funny how Japanese people can be vocal about the politics of another country but are silent about their own

Hogwash. A plurality of Japanese people voice their discontent at the Japanese govt every election by not voting for the LDP. Twitter discontent is as useful as a baby's diaper.

Posted in: Abe says no need for another state of emergency over coronavirus See in context

Even with young people who got infected, need to look at the long term effects, such as lung and brain damage, so the numbers of infection rate still quite important.

Statistically do you actually have any idea how often there is brain or lung damage? The American media has hyped that but there is little proof of any large segment of patients being affected by that. And most likely those patients would have been hospitalized and been in ICU, which kinda proves my point that only looking at infection rates is ridiculous.

Posted in: Abe says no need for another state of emergency over coronavirus See in context

unfortunately, too many people, and the media, just focus on the infection rate, which merely reflects one data point. the more important data points are hospitalization rates, icu rates and number of deaths. if these remail low, then who cares if 1,000 people a day, most of whom are young people, get infected.

Posted in: Japanese government to urge more teleworking as coronavirus cases surge See in context

Right, then why are there more cases popping up daily NOW then back when Abe declared an "emergency"!

Because they're testing more. Not that difficult to figure out of you'd just actually think about it.

How about people, and especially parents, in Japan be held more accountable for their actions? What the heck is a kid doing laying on his stomach on a skateboard in the middle of an intersection?! How about the parents actually doing some parenting ffs.

Posted in: Tokyo confirms 48 new coronavirus infections See in context

These numbers will remain high, and might even increase, because they have started testing almost everyone working in Kabukicho. 2/3 of the infections from Sunday were from Kabukicho. My guess is that the same ratio holds true today.

Not exactly sure the point of this article. What issue needs to be addressed by companies RE lgbtq? What actual discrimination has taken place? Seems like an answer looking for a problem.

Never going to happen, but the best thing that could happen here, is to have a direct election for PM!

And pray tell how will that exactly help Japan in any meaningful way? It sure hasn't "helped" a lot in America.

The alert was totally pointless. Did anyone actually change their behavior because of the alert?
