Nahh, just drop the crew off at the front door to their countrie's embassy. Let them pay to return the crew.

If the guy bullying his neighbours, regularly caught for cyber attacks and generally behaving in an anti-social manner holds a party, how many people would actually want to go?

I'd love to see a sporting event for democracies only.

Posted in: Alcohol linked to 1 in 25 global cancer cases: study See in context

Alcohol causes cancer, yep.

How many?

Is it more than the number of fatalities caused by alcohol on the road? How about death as a result of domestic abuse induced by alcohol? What about cases of lives destroyed by drunken rape?

On a scale of harm caused, alcohol out classes other drugs like Heroin or Cocaine.

Posted in: Americans apologize to Tokyo court for role in Ghosn escape See in context

I deeply regret my actions and sincerely apologize for causing difficulties for the judicial process and for the Japanese people. I’m sorry,

I'm sorry that I got extradidted to Japan, more like....

These guys would have known the risks of the mission when they accepted it, sureley it would have been priced into the fee. They certainly are tougher than Ghosn in accepting their fate, now they are just playing the game of an apology and sit out their jail time.

Her execution won't bring these men back.

Hopefully those left behind will take some solice from this, maybe even a sense that justice has been done.

If it makes one person reconsider the consequences for their actions and saves a life, then I see that as a positive.

In Australia there has been an ongoing campaign for Don't Drink and Drive for over the last 30 years.

That said, it would be better if there was more support to help with care of the elderly.

The staff aren't paid or trained to deal with the ensuing confrontation.

While something like this is a total pissant move, in Japan the procedure has been followed correctly. Let the police deal with this entitled fool.

Once is an innocent mistake, this guy is a serial thief and needs to be dealt with appropriately. Idioms to quote here "a stitch on time saves none" and "the thin edge of the wedge" and "the behaviour you walk past is what you choose to accept".

Theft is theft and because small matters like this are treated seriously, Japan as a whole is relatively crime free.

Extra time off, great.

Pity for all the non-regular workers without holiday pay.

If people do stay home for long enough, I wonder if we will have a mini baby boom in September?

Sorry but what was Quibi? Never heard of it before this article.

@Spitfire ever seen the over packaged fruit in department stores? These pears were probably destined for something like that. That's 400 yen each, probably his wholesale price too.

Posted in: No jail for parents who left daughters at home while they used COVID cash handout for hotel stay See in context

It's moments like this that I favour bringing back corporal punishment.

If you impose gaol time upon them, the kids will suffer because their parents are locked up. (but not much different from what these people did to their kids already)

If you impose a fine upon them, then there will be less money for the kids for food, education or sports.

A few strokes of the cane however, that'd make parents like this think twice.

Posted in: Japanese KitKats are shrinking; Nestlé says previous size may have been too large for customers See in context

This is one symptom of a depressed market.

If income is good, then people are prepared to bear the cost of inflation.

Because incomes are flat or falling and have been so for the last 20+ years, people aren't prepared to accept price rises. Shrinking products are what you get when businesses are unable to pass along cost increases.

Posted in: China's imports, exports surge as global economy reopens See in context

There is zero need for a formal boycott of Chinese goods, nor do we need tarrifs.

What we do need is a grassroots campaign for people to re-consider their purchases. Instead of buying new cheap stuff from China, why not buy something well made second hand? Targeting waste is an easy way to redirect funds from countries that operate concentration camps.

Additionally, policies to ensure that as much PPE & equipment for healthcare and disease control is made locally and meets requirements for efficient recycling.

Posted in: Japan's top court backs lower pay for nonregular employees See in context

Way to go Supreme Court's No. 3!

Let's make more people in Japan insecure with their work and retirement.

People insecure with their work & future are FAR less likely to have children!

Now we know the current legal interpretation, how about some new laws that address this?

Or do we want to let Japan's population continue to age and shrink?

Say all you want about convincing people to start a family.

But when workers have no time to meet anyone or look after kids because of BS busywork overtime and wages are a joke, why have children?

It is about time that nations are waking up to the fact that China isn't their friend.

The world has become top reliant on them for cheap stuff and has to move away and find new suppliers. Ones without concentration camps.

Posted in: Nintendo's Switch faces French claim of 'planned obsolescence' See in context

This is why we haven't moved from 3DS to the Switch.

Our 3DS will last forever on a single charge, are sturdy and well built.

Sure the 3D function is a gimmick and got quickly turned off, but the unit is reliable.

Switch just doesn't have the same sturdiness, glad we didn't move over.
