Hard to practice rugby when every high-school has a gravel ground instead of nice grass to play on.

Posted in: What is the policy on paternity leave at your workplace? As far as you know, has anyone taken it? See in context

I think we can take paternity leave on paper, but no way in hell would I chance the repercussions by taking it. I need my current job and bonus more than I need some time off.

Posted in: UK court: Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament unlawful See in context

So? It's a Scottish judge. Stay strong, Boris. Get to Europe pronto and start telling countries to veto any further extension to Brexit.

Posted in: What are some tips for keeping motivated if you're in a repetitive job, doing the same thing all day every day? See in context

I only work to earn money. I don't understand the concept of being "fulfilled" at work. My boss often asks me what my ambitions/motivations are. Of course, I invent some nonsense to appease him, but I am only thinking "to earn enough money to have a decent life".

Posted in: Johnson tells parliament: You can tie my hands, but I will not delay Brexit See in context

Best PM in a long time, delivering on what a majority of the UK electorate voted for. Just get a couple of sympathetic EU countries to veto any extension, Boris! That way, we're out on October 31st NO DEAL!

Posted in: British Airways pilots ground planes in unprecedented 48-hour strike See in context

Awful airline. Why anybody flying to Japan from the UK would choose BA is a mystery to me, when you can also choose from JAL/ANA/Asiana/Korean Air etc.

Posted in: UNHCR calls on Japan to do more as refugee approval rate 'quite low' See in context

Japan accepts genuine refugees, not economic migrants. There's a huge difference. It's very hard to find yourself a genuine refugee in Japan, simply due to geography.

Posted in: British PM to suspend parliament before Brexit; opposition denounces 'coup' See in context

Excellent decision by the PM. "Subverting democracy"?! Give me a break. The people truly subverting democracy are the Remainers who still refuse to accept the result of the referendum back in 2016. Here's hoping for a no-deal Brexit. Go Boris!

She knew what she was doing. You see girls like this around Shibuya all the time.

She should be prosecuted for murdering and dumping her baby.

Non-Japanese men who are less than 100% fluent in Japanese sound silly using "ore".

Posted in: What are your best money saving tips when it comes to grocery shopping in Japan? See in context

Go shopping around 8pm or so; deals to be had on meat. You can pick up all sorts of cuts of meat cheaply. Even if it looks a bit yucky, but it through a minder and make 100% meat burgers. Great for summer BBQs!

Posted in: Trump says he does not have 'racist bone' in his body See in context

He didn't say anything racist. Honestly, he could cure cancer single-handed right now, and the left would find fault with him in some contrived way or another. Also, a bit rich for someone from Somalia(!) to be criticizing her adopted country!

Living in a tiny mountain village in Japan, Prime is awesome for me. I use Amazon so much, for almost everything, groceries, cleaning products, gardening stuff, books, beers....and it all gets delivered free!
