“Record 54% of Japanese students not eager to study,” might be more apt.

That old question when you lose your snake: where did you last have it? If I knew that my snake would t be lost now would it?

Blackstar. So if a man’s the victim he must have done something to deserve it. Shame on you.

Alex. So sorry to hear of your terrible experience. Luckily the vast majority of men aren’t like this and are the horrible except to the rule.

Snowymountainhell. After the incident, I went with her husband and another person to her apartment to try and console her and offer moral support. There wasn’t much else we could do as any decision to take it further was ultimately down to her. We weren’t about to pester her telling her what she should or shouldn’t do.

On a different note, a different female associate witnessed a middle aged man expose himself to some young girls on the train. My point being that it’s certainly not rare here.

This happened to a friend and colleague of mine. When she saw the workplace counselor, (a woman) she was told that it because of what she was wearing and that the attacker was probably a foreigner. Even though the counselor hasn’t seen the guy.

The biggest surprise for me is that Internet cafes still exist when (almost) everyone’s had the Internet in their pocket for the past ten years or so.

“I just cannot understand why Japan just doesn't apologize for their role in this terrible attack on Korean women? Why? Oh Why?”

What happened was despicable, but I believe Japan has apologized several times. Of course, no amount of apologies will ever atone for those actions.

I wonder if he said ‘I’ll be back’ just before attempting to drive into the reception.

When I was at school my bag probably cost around a thousand yen. These Randosell bags can cost between 50 and 100,000 yen, and are sometimes compulsory. Oh, but they last for all of school people say. Yeah, great. If your cheap bag gets a hole in it, get a new one for a thousand yen!

Just saying ‘let’s treat it like the flu’ isn’t going to make it behave like the flu. The current variant is ‘mild’ but who knows about the next one? We have no idea.

“Is Japan still going to require vaccinations with all the government data from UK, Scotland, and Israel showing the vaccinated are the overwhelming majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths?”

Do a Google search for the baseline fallacy, it’s what you just made.
