Posted in: Woman arrested over deaths of two young sons See in context

They should give her the death of penalty as a warning to others that this isn't acceptable to behave like this. 

Every sane person knows it is not acceptable to behave like that.

Posted in: Firefighter arrested for shoplifting in convenience store See in context

It is incredible to me how many crimes in Japan are followed by a full confession from the suspect and no attempt to avoid punishment.

The police arrest you and detain you until you make a confession. That's the game plan.

Cost of the vaccine for UK residents $0

Cost of Covid treatment for UK residents $0

Imagine never having to worry about paying for medical treatment or medicines?

Canada has same costs....none. There are many other countries the same way.

Surprised anyone feels strong enough about his repeated actions to call the cops on him.

Indeed. Why not just kick him out of the store and tell him not to come back

Posted in: Japan's consumer prices fall at decade-fast pace, adding to deflation fears See in context

The cost of fresh foods has gone up in recent weeks.

Which is normal in winter. You have to compare this winter to last winter and the winter before, not just look back in time 4 or 8 weeks.

How hard would it be to change the system to getting the coffee first, then paying for it. I mean you don't go to the counter and say I want to buy a beer and then saunter back to the fridge to pick one out.

Posted in: 'We will be back in some form,' Trump vows at end of tumultuous presidency See in context

"He is going to be an asterisk president, a one-termer who did more damage than good," said presidential historian Douglas Brinkley.

Exactly. He will be a 1TW (One Term Wonder) and kids in schools decades will not will wonder how the US voted in such a psychopathic president..

Posted in: Meet Kyuta: the 10-year-old, 85-kilo sumo wrestler in training See in context

At 85 kilograms, Kyuta is twice the size of the other children his age

And he weights quite a bit more than the average Japanese adult.

Terrible--his lifespan will be short.

Posted in: Woman arrested after selling counterfeit Chanel item to police officer at flea market See in context

I really don't understand why so many resources are wasted on such a small item.

Go after wholesalers and big places selling these items if you wish, but seriously? At a flea market? One item?

Posted in: Saizeriya president calls requests not to eat out for lunch ‘nonsense’ See in context

Ever eat at Saizeriya? Once is about enough.

It is low budget, but it serves a purpose. Kind of like their little side salad with shrimp, then get a pasta you like.

When I tell people at home I can get small shrimp salad, pasta, small glass of cheap wine or maybe a beer for about 1000 yen all in, they can't believe it.

They had these on the Sapporo cans sold in the UK in the late 1980s

Still sold in Canada that way..pretty sure in the USA as well

Posted in: Here’s why Japanese supermarkets play 'cheap' background music all day, according to Twitter See in context

I have actually made a hasty exit from some of the stores that play those relentless jingles. I would not classify them as elevator music at all (which is usually barely noticeable and soothing).

Surely I am not the only one that gets irritated by these jingles and the relentless noise (especially in electronic type stores)

Better Recipe- cooked ground beef or similar instead of chicken. No mushrooms. Good qualify tomato sauce stirred in with the cooked beef. Whole pepper with top cut off. Top with cheese and put in toaster oven or similar.

Money at the pachinko parlor? I though all you could win are some balls.

Umm, the customers bring money to the pachinko place and spend it. That's how the money gets there. The Pachinko parlour has to deposit said profits in bank.
