Posted in: Stop politicizing origin tracing of COVID-19 See in context

"This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC), and China has been transformed and progressing significantly under the CPC’s regime since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949."

What a crock of bull. Except this:

"However, distrust and hostility between the West and China never disappear." There is a reason for that. The CPC can be trusted to do 2 things... and that is to lie and cover their rear ends. Once that part is understood, everything else takes the proper perspective.

Along with the CPC, the WHO can't be trusted either. Nor the NIH. Period.

Paul, try much less than that if it's moist and in a wooded area... Decomposition of a body happens rapidly. My heart goes out to the family of the victim of what most likely was no accident.

Posted in: U.S. Navy man arrested after breaking into apartment, taking shower See in context

I'm wondering if the poor sailor didn't confuse his apartment for the one he went into. Apparently, it's beyond the reporting ability of JT to ascertain where the guy lived, and if it was possible that he lived in that building, and simply went into the wrong apartment. It's not like there's a huge bit of variety in Japanese apartments, especially the kind that have the opening to the apartment on a balcony and it's essentially a cookie-cutter layout inside like all the rest.

On top of that, he didn't BREAK and ENTER. He simply entered the wrong apartment, and that could be called trespassing, IF HE HAD INTENT. Japanese law is clear on this - it must be established that he intended to do this and they have to prove that. And while nobody should be drunk enough to mistake someone else's apartment for another, it's not like this doesn't happen to Japanese, as well. At least it doesn't sound as though he threw up on the floor, unlike the many pools of barf I see in the train station.

But, I guess if JT doesn't report it like this, it won't be a sensation and sell more papers and generate more bad vibes against Americans in Atsugi, when actually, it was a non-event other than the guy was drunk and probably just wanted to go to sleep and mistook his apartment for someone else's that had left the door unlocked.

Frankly, I'd rather deal with a situation like this than to put up with the crazy idiots on 400CC kawasaki 2 cyl bozo-soko bikes razzing their engines at top rpm at 0200 through the neighborhood, but apparently Japanese folks don't have a problem with those morons disturbing the peace and making asses out of themselves.

Posted in: Man injured by wild boar in Yamaguchi See in context

Well, I'll see if this post can be resurrected. It's a bit more than 4 years when I posted last. Belrick, is it still the same in Yamaguchi with the lack of wild boar? They've multiplied here, and in Motegi, where my wift's uncle lives, his neighbor spears them all the time and sells me the meat for cheap. And we love it! I'd rather have him kill them with a spear after he traps them than to see a bunch of guys who can barely shoot a shotgun try to exerminate them with buckshot, and if you've ever seen a broadhead come out of a crossbow, a heart shot will take them down as quickly as a rifle (but you have to have owned a shotgun for 10 years before you can have a rifle). I wish Japan would re-think it's hunting laws.

This would be less of a problem if the Japanese government would allow bow-hunting. For the life of me, I can't imagine why a nation that has a rich history of archery refuses to allow the use of this weapon to take boar and deer, both of which have become epidemics in the rural areas.

"It's a protest vote, if you will." I second that vote.

Posted in: Man stabbed on Saitama street; suspect turns himself in at koban See in context

Jeff Huffman, you took the words right out of my mouth. Additionally, Americanhonor, how does the abundance of police in an area have any direct correlation to the actions of people who are either bent on committing a crime or are mentally deranged? There has to be some form of respect for the law (which the police represent) or fear of the police themselves or fear of the penalty of caught - none of which apparently was the case here.
