Global warming? Climate change? Act of God?

Is it your belief that volcanism is related to climate change..?

Please take a basic geography course. Review an episode of "Bill Nye the Science Guy", or something.

Posted in: Woman using smartphone falls to her death from bridge in Shizuoka Prefecture See in context

All the people judging the lady about smartphone use... she was just trying to take photos of wildlife, seems the rail was unhelpfully low. How about a little compassion though?

Yes, but the trend shows plainly that while males generally will take photos of "X", women generally will try to include themselves in the photo with "X". Thus, it is likely she was taking a selfie and edged closer to the railing to get a better angle. Downvote all you want. This would be the logical assumption until proven otherwise.

Water is vital but alone is not sufficient to replace electrolytes lost through perspiration. Some sports drinks like Pocari Sweat actually do a better job than you might think.

It’s difficult to understand the pride and pleasure some people take in their own disgusting vulgarity

The answer is, the prestige of imaginary internet points.

Japanese Brazilians, man...

They just always look so much more healthy, and robust. Diet, culture, attitude... All very different.

Maybe they should go through discipline training before given access to deadly weapons...

"Discipline training"? What's "discipline training"? You mean the discipline recruits are subject to from Minute 1 of entering the military? Yeah, they get that.

I served for 16 years. Once you give a man a weapon, he has every opportunity to suddenly decide to stand up, turn around, and murder someone. All that stops him is his conscience as a human being, or eventually, the instructors around him.

Frederik has clearly never served a day in uniform, but like many, he just needs to chime in with his opinion.

Progressives: OmG u go grrrrrrrl. AwEsOmE! YeAH!

Sensible people: A child should be nurtured at home in a calm and proper environment, and given proper love, care, and attention. Out of respect to colleagues, and for the sake of the baby, a political office environment with commotion, loud noises, people speaking through microphones, and overstimulation is not the place to raise a child.

Progressives: REEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

I’ve never actually watched any Charlie Brown myself, or not as far as I can remember. The nostalgic comments here make me feel like I’ve been missing out on something.

You have, indeed.

Posted in: Japan ranks 116th in 2022 gender gap report, worst among G7 See in context

So we're still confusing "wages" with "earnings", are we? Yes, of course there is an income gap. Cultural differences and women's choices account for them not entering and remaining in the active labour force in the same numbers as men. Thus they EARN less overall, but aren't necessarily PAID less individually.

Women choose to remain at home more than men. They take time off to have children while men earn money to support the family. They choose part-time careers...

I thought we were done with this foolishness.

Posted in: Counting the coronavirus cost at Tokyo Olympics See in context

Man, I have never read such hate as in the comment section of Japan Today. Any positivity is downvoted to oblivion. Any comment crediting Japan with carrying out an extremely efficient Olympics despite the most horrendous of circumstances is downvoted. I made a comment that the US team DID in fact take a knee, and it was right there for all to see. Downvoted.

"...suggested falsely in a statement that the women had refused to stand for the national anthem during the tournament."

I don't understand, they DID kneel for the anthem, AND refused to wear their national jerseys, sporting BLM jerseys, instead. How is this wrong?
