Assaulting the boss? Not really the way to get promoted at work.

Made my daying seeing KC lose. Their fans are insufferably smug and seemed to think the Superbowl was there for the taking. Hint-there is another team on the field with you.

"It is true that I have been hard on staff, but I reject the suggestion that I have targeted staff of any particular nationality," he said.

Get with the times. If you want your staff to perform well, bullying is not the answer. In my former line of business they finally figured that out and productivity and results blossomed.

Redd died of a heart attack at a rehearsal (of another show). At first they thought he was doing his fake heart attack routine, but it turned out unfortunately to be the real thing

this is a custard pie that contains Canadian maple syrup,

I doubt that very much. Real Maple syrup is expensive. This will be maple flavoured syrup which is not the same thing at all.

Posted in: Tokyo changes age limit for kids going into opposite sex’s bath at hot springs and sento See in context

Last thing I want to see is other middle aged dudes with their junk hanging down hopping into the tub with me

You don't have to look at them. Look up at the mural, look to the side or whatever. Why are you staring at them?

Posted in: Tokyo changes age limit for kids going into opposite sex’s bath at hot springs and sento See in context

The onsen culture itself is too overrated. I just don't get why people are so obsessed with getting naked in front of strangers and sitting in a pool of warm water.

Totally disagree. Love onsen and sento. Wish my home country had them as well.

Posted in: Toyota overtakes GM to lead U.S. auto sales for 2021 See in context

 The last GM vehicle I road in repeated times was a 1970s Gremlin. A Govt vehicle provided to Dad. It was junk. 

The Gremlin was not a GM vehicle. It was American Motors Corporation, (AMC) who also made the Pacer, Matador and Jeep.

Posted in: France bans plastic packaging for fruit and vegetables See in context

The problem in some places is customers paw each and every fruit and vegetable looking for "the best ones". Why someone has to paw piles of bananas or oranges is beyond me.

Possibly someone who embezzled and now feels guilty about it. Or a Robin Hood type character.

all this because of cold-like symptoms.

5.3 million deaths globally. Some cold, eh?

Local paper today saying 2 month old newborn (born healthy) died of covid this week. A cold does not do that.

Should be named, fired and his life destroyed like everyone else.

For 200 yen? Seriously? Dock him a few days pay and move on.

Make the trash forfeit his pension in its entirety. Thatd be a fair punishment.

No it would not be fair. For 200 yen crime you should not forfeit a pension. That's about as harsh as England in the old days that sent people to Australia for stealing a loaf of bread.

Perhaps the killer isn’t a foreigner and is already in prison in Japan

No. They would have his fingerprints then and would do a match or partial match to the prints left at the crime scene.

Japan needs to figure out a way to let overseas tourists visit. Surely a COVID test and proof of vaccination would do the trick

Without these tourists thousands of businesses will fail

. I don’t know of any bus where you exit from the front.

Have you never ridden a bus with a fare board where you pay as you exit into the machine beside the driver? Fare is based on distance.

There are plenty of buses like that in Japan.

Last time I saw these they were advertising a bar that had opened...I tried to find the place, but finally gave up. Figured I would try and patronize someone who used them.

PS-at first I though it was a spoof of the Abbey Rd photo.

While I am sure that is true, does he have any worry for the family of the deceased?

Surprised they are going to live in New York. New York is horrible now (high crime, dirty, poor political policies, etc). Tokyo is way, way better, cleaner, and safer city.

The whole point is they have to leave Japan where they are under the microscope at all times . In NY they will be almost anonymous and free to do what they want.
