Posted in: Common-law couple plead not guilty over death of 2-year-old girl See in context

I've heard the saying "children can't choose their parents" but in this case it's "they can't choose their grandparents"..

What a messed up world we live in.

Posted in: Hokkaido police officer arrested for assaulting woman while drunk See in context

A little bit of alcohol isn't bad, takes the edge off when you're stressed out. I don't know what it is with a lot of Japanese people, but they just handle their liquor and/or have no idea where their own limit is.

Good old England. They really know how to put on a great show .... NOT!

Abolishing mandatory retirement age rules would help. Keep people who want to continue to work and pay taxes.

I agree. Just no jobs that involve driving.

Posted in: Car overturns in collision, killing 2-year-old boy in Chiba Prefecture See in context

My wife says I'm pretty chilled about most things, but it comes to buckling up, I'm like a drill sergeant..

The kids squealed and complained for a week or 2, but it was all worth it because not when they get in a car, the seatbelt goes on, as it should.

I love living in Japan, but for such a supposed "advanced / developed" country, they are really behind on adhering to traffic rules. Not wearing seatbelts, speeding, running red lights, playing around on devices... And so many more things that could make deaths like this preventable.

Posted in: Man Utd ease pressure on Ten Hag; Spurs, Newcastle stunned See in context

Playing without Maddison was always gonna be the test for Spurs. With him out injured now, we've lost a big part of our creativity. On the other hand, you're right Jizmo, Wolves are a pretty formidable side.

The soap opera that is Manchester United is great to watch. I find myself waking up every morning to check if anything else has gone T#&S up.

I think Ten Hag might be sacked, it's a possibility unless they pick up more points.

But who do bring in if he does get sacked ?

Who would do well there with those players .. it's a mishmash squad of players bought by 5 failed managers over the last 6 years

Posted in: Newcastle inflict first defeat on Arsenal; Fernandes rescues Man Utd See in context

Doku looks very good. As if Man City needed more firepower.

Yeah, he fits in really well.

I think that's the difference between Pep and the rest. He sees who will fit well not only into his team, but also into the premier league.

AND, he didn't overspend on him.

The headline is causing confusion here.

She was using her smartphone as a camera to take a picture, as I've done many times, not walking on a dangerous road surfing the Net.

Poor father ... Really feel terrible for him.

Posted in: Messi wins eighth Ballon d'Or as Bonmati claims women's award See in context

I'm disappointed that it's gone to Messi again this year.

He has decided to play in a far less competitive league so he's not playing any champions league football- at his age, no one can blame him for deciding to do that, but it should disqualify him from being a contender for this award.

If he's guilty of doing what she says he has done then I'm guessing there could be other women coming forward with similar claims.

Great to see such a competitive league so far this season.

I don't care if we're top ... I'm just happy that we're playing good football, not that boring stuff that the "special" managers tried to push.

Posted in: Refugee applicants to Japan surge in 2023; may reach record high See in context

YubaruToday  07:44 am JST

The number of refugee applicants to Japan is surging this year,

Gimmie a break with the vocabulary here. "Surging"?

I don't know how many we accepted here recently but I remember 1 year a while back, it was 11 or something like that.

So based on that number, it could be 'surging' but still be quite a small number.

An old Japanese friend of mine used to brag about getting by on 3-4 hours of sleep. Long story short, he has a brain tumor removed last year, and now sleeps 7 hours a night

Posted in: Man forces his way into apartment; tries to assault 7-year-old girl See in context

7 years old, 1st grade elementary school kids. I'm not sure if it's the same nationwide, but around where I live the 1st graders wear fluorescent yellow covers over their rucksacks to tell them apart from the other grades.

I'm sure their are some sick #@#@s who prey on vulnerable kids in their 1st year of elementary school so you're not wrong about the number 7.

It's a not exclusive to Japan though.

If we can't win silverware with this current squad then we're never going win anything. Good creativity in the middle of the park with Bellingham and Rice, and a decent strike-force ... Just the defense is a bit of a liability

Ibaraki ranked ‘least attractive’ among Japan’s 47 prefectures in survey

Sadly, this is pretty accurate.

I've spent a lot time in Ibaraki over the past 20 years as the in-laws live there.

Apart from Mt. Tsukuba, there aren't many places with good scenery, just a lot of fields ... And then more fields.

I like my wine and cheese.

I tried BN a few times but it's too fruity for me .. maybe that's why it sells well here. Japanese people always overpay for anything fruit related.

Posted in: 'Every Hamas member is a dead man,' Netanyahu says as strikes devastate Gaza See in context

There are no "butchered women and beheaded children" in Israel

And you go by the name "Observer"? I didn't parrot anyone's lines and didn't say anything about beheaded children as you can clearly read in my comment. I'm telling you that because of the massacre, most people are going to accept that Israel needs to take Hamas out by carpet bombing parts of Gaza because it's riddled with traps and terrorists.

Posted in: 'Every Hamas member is a dead man,' Netanyahu says as strikes devastate Gaza See in context

Where is the international outcry?

People have run out of tears for the Palestinians since Hamas decided to massacre women and children. There are fighters and traps waiting for the IDF so it makes sense to try to take them out before they go into Gaza on a ground offensive.

Targeted assassinations and drone attacks. I'm not a warplanner Jimizo, but you asked me what he should do I said 'get rid of Hamas'.

What about you, what do you think he should do?
