Chinese spies on the ground are far more dangerous than balloons in the sky.

Yes, too bad Eric Swalwell couldn't figure that out.

That's not polyamory - that's a harem

Sounds more like a sex cult like on some R. Kelly type of thing and hopefully more victims like this girl come out to put this guy away for the rest of his life. However, sex crimes get measly sentences here in Japan.

Skiers, police and officials cite a combination of factors: a lack of safety information in English

They are going no matter what language you put warning signs in. They know the risks like certain surfers that go out during typhoon weather.

Posted in: Why is R&B music more explicit than ever? It’s complicated. See in context

Explicit R&B was influenced by the king perv himself R. Kelly. One might say Nate Dogg had a hand in it too when he was featured in many hip hop songs througout the 90s. I love R&B from the New Jack Swing era through the early 2000s. For some reason, groups have completely disappeared from R&B. Now most R&B is basically bland trap soul.

And do some research about J-prison. It's dreadfully strict, and no such communication opportunities can ever happen.

Most know the prison conditions here. The main worry is the type of sentencing they get will be underwhelming to what they deserve. They deserve a long long sentence for their crimes which includes a murder.

Everyone being able to raise their voices and cheer is a good thing," Hanshin Tigers manager Akinobu Okada said.

I remember going to several games in 2020 at Koshien where they were letting in only 10,000 people with 3 seats open between each person. It was so quiet you could probably hear a pin drop. Then about the 4th inning, every game had a different drunk old man screaming at the pitcher and the ushers all running to shut the guy up. Those were the days lol

I am mainly a hip hop fan and never look to the Grammys for hip hop expertise. Kendrick Lamar's worst album wins a Grammy but his best one loses to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis? What kind of morons they have working there?

Wow, life sentence, for killing a foreigner. I can honestly not recall this every happening before.

Two I remember off hand. Tatsuya Ichihashi, who killed the English teacher Lindsay Hawker and was a fugitive for 2 years. Also the PTA leader that raped and killed the 9 year old Vietnamese student got life I believe a few years back.

Posted in: Sushi chain limits conveyor belt use to orders after licking scandal See in context

The Sushi conveyor belt restaurants were already doing this over the past 3 years as people were reluctant to go do to the pandemic.

They change they way do business because one sick customer do stupid things?

Stupid people doing stupid things for Tik Tok views usually attract stupid copycats. The best thing to do would be to also lay the hammer down on the boy's family to make these stupid copycats think about trying anything.

Many students and teachers wore masks in ceremonies before the covid pandemic.

Many? The only kids I saw wearing masks were the random ones when catching a cold and visiting the clinic. I have never ever seen students wearing masks at school.

Posted in: 4 robbery suspects may be sent from Philippines to Japan next week See in context

The Philippines is seeking the dismissal of local criminal charges against some of the four men.

and what exactly are these local charges? I heard child abuse and domestic violence but is there more than this. I really want them to serve time in Philippines before coming to Japan and getting light sentences.

They should be tried and sentenced in both countries. The first sentence should be done in the Philippines because Japan tends to protect their citizens from extradition and give softball sentences.

Luckily I studied Geography in Elementary School because if you were my teacher, I'd think the U.S. only had 2 States: Florida and Texas.

I'm sure getting rid of any and all gun regulations in Florida would prevent shootings like this. /s

Gun laws sure working out for California, New York and Illinois. Luckily I studied Geography in Elementary School because if you were my teacher, I'd think the U.S. only had 2 States: Florida and Texas.

Stupidity is bringing race into every conversation every single day. Give it a rest on focus on the guns instead of your hatred of white people.

The statement "Black Lives Matter" is more important than the organisation

and using this statement will change what? What are you doing in your community on a day to day basis to bring change to obviously the biggest problem facing America? Where are the politicians that were active in 2020 for people to rise up against the police and government to make change? What makes this occasion less urgent than in 2020?

I answered a question by another poster and I have never made any donations nor do I ever receive newsletters but from time to time I might read an article or two.

I just want to know why the BLM organization opinion matters. You knew their stance on police brutality so you may give us more of a rundown why I should support the BLM organization. I just need confirmation from you, Wallace, that I can whip out my checkbook and my money will go to the right place.

BLM is opposed to all police brutality.

Do you receive some sort of monthly newsletter from them after the donation you made? Like where the funds go, community events and so on?

Posted in: Company uses whale meat vending machines to promote sales in Japan See in context

I never ate and will never will eat a whale. I do not understand this concept. We in this day and age do not need to eat whale meat.

Ask people that grew up in postwar Japan from the 1940s through 1950s. Most types of meat was scarce and expensive so many ate whale in their school lunches. They ate whale almost daily. I have heard this story from most people 70 and up.

Of course the typical posters acting like their party can do no wrong and ALL Republicans are sick psychos. There are many cases of the opposite happening to Republican lawmakers as well. How about reprimanding ALL political violence instead of picking and choosing who deserves or doesn't deserve to be shot at?
