Posted in: After virus-hit Olympics, public split over future Games in Japan See in context

I did read that no host city has made money since Barcelona so there’s certainly no financial incentive to host it. Also, it’ll be decades till Japan gets another chance so what’s the point of this questionnaire now?

Posted in: Japan business lobby seeks to end quarantine for vaccinated arrivals See in context

Isn’t it just the tiniest bit hypocritical that Japan is asking countries to allow people traveling from Japan not to be confined to quarantine, yet it’s still a full 14 days in solitary when you arrive back here? Especially when Delta et al are already in Japan. Sort it out!

Lots of people doing thumbs down for anyone offering a degree of sympathy for him. Yeah, alright, he shouldn’t have bit the medal. What a tit. But FFS get over it, he’s a human being and nobody should suffer this evil virus. Bring on the dislikes people! And stay safe.

The government need to tell people to keep their noses in their masks too. The amount of guys I see with their shnozes sticking over the top as if the virus doesn’t live their is ridiculous.

“These are young people and they have their own speak,” he said. "If somebody says ‘the wave are bad, man' — meaning the waves were great.”

Are these young people who arrived in a time machine from the 80s?

He used the example of the German word “schadenfreude," which means pleasure derived from the misfortune of others.

"This kind of word exists only in German and it would be difficult to express that concept in English. 

Actually, we do have a word in English for that: it’s called schadenfreude. Duh!

Every time I’ve ever seen skaters in Japan they’ve always been terrible. They never land any of their tricks and always, always bail. Maybe things will get better now!
