To come so close must be a friendly move, but did they not say 'Hello!'...?

(I guess all their listening equipment was wound up to full pitch, and the results of the fishing expedition shared and analyzed.)

Well, Japan is largely a peaceful nation, so I hope they all enjoyed the scenery.

For those who say it pollutes the oceans, I guess they must be totally anti-nuclear anywhere around the world. Consistent. Fair enough.

For those who say tritium pollution is what all nuclear power plants emit into the oceans anyway, and no worse than NPPs everywhere, including Russia, China and Korea, I guess these people are basically pro-nuclear power in general. Consistent, fair enough.

I’ve seen examples of these photos in the past. Anyone trying to make money off them must really be scraping the barrel, hoping that a few losers might want to pay up for their ‘services’.

Good to see a packed 2022 calendar. Let’s hope the virus goes off to some other planet and no races will be cancelled next year.

Posted in: Japan media watchdog organization responds to complaints about 'Demon Slayer' See in context

Although strangely not mentioned in the article, the people complaining are surely worrying about the fact that children are watching it, further that peer pressure will make sure that everyone will want to see it regardless of parental advice.

Although I think this anime series is very well done, bringing alive the strength of friend and family ties and loyalty, there is an element which harks back to a time when the Japanese sword was being used to slay the ‘inferior’ people of other nations.

In other words, if you decide that your enemy is not really ‘human’ then you can detach emotionally and engage fully in whatever it takes to suppress them.

There is however an attempt to show that even devils can be redeemed.

Yes, lessons for almost every country worldwide. WHO refused to declare a pandemic weeks and weeks after it was painfully obvious to everyone else.

Posted in: Case involving teenage cyclist accused of reckless riding sent to prosecutors See in context

Not a ‘cyclist’ really, he was just a high school kid on a bike. In the video you could see him weaving right and left, almost over the center line at times, then suddenly braking, as if inviting an accident, just to annoy the lady.

Road rage and Aori-Unten are like a bad rash nowadays, and the cops have vowed publicly to come down hard on it. They’ve even got traffic helicopters measuring the gap between cars down below. This kid was caught on camera, a really bad time to be doing it, so he’ll get a serious talking-to.

What rubbish. The public would never has accepted an earlier lockdown. They won't accept anything except a concept of 'freedom' to do anything you like.

Almost no-one is wearing mask nowadays, and there's a really bad cold going around London right now. 'Coldvid'.(?)

Peter14's million dollar coin iedea might work, but I would certainly buy a $1,000 coin if it was offered, and I am sure millions of others would. And they'd all go into a drawer somewhere for safe keeping.

So that nice photo has nothing to do with the story? The caption changes halfway through. "It would be the token of all tokens..." What would be? A little confused here.

Yup, that just about sums it up. If I had to choose, I’d put my money on Lewis for the Championship this year. It’s just a gut feeling. (Here’s $10)

Don’t blame the Nissan robots (or the cars) for taking away jobs for the millions.

I have had many cars throughout my life including several Nissans and they have been good. Sunny, Bluebird, Cube, and two Skylines, R33 GTR, & R34 GTR.

Good for Nissan executives, but I fear for the future of humanity. So many people are out of work, and yet they say there is a labor shortage that the robots will help fill? Really? (My guess is that many ordinary people would be happy with the security of a simple job in a factory.)

Motor Racing

Congratulations to Lewis on acquiring Pole Position, set while breaking the lap record in Istanbul. He looks good with his trophy.

The photo caption says he will start in 10th place on the grid, but paragraph 2 is probably correct in saying 11th place.

The rules do not say that he has to forfeit the recognition of winning pole position, only that he has to drop ten places for the race start. This seems like a double punishment.

A step in the right direction at last. Japan has been slow to even treat such acts as crimes.

Posted in: Taliban say they won't work with U.S. to contain Islamic State See in context

To be fair to the Taliban they did not emphasize so much that they “won’t work with the US”, rather that they feel they can do it on their own.

They are probably reluctant to give the US carte blanche to conduct drone sorties throughout the skies of Afghanistan. Understandable in the circumstances.

Actually Lewis is only changing the ICE block, and none of the peripherals, meaning a lighter 10-place grid penalty.

Rain forecast for today I heard, so that should mix up the qualification sessions.

In the name of ‘purity’ of religion IS will use any underhand motivation (racial discrimination, sectarian divide, anti-Chinese sentiment) and any means (mass atrocities, forced ‘suicide’ bombers) to divide and weaken their enemy.
