That's the key phrase, so leave the man alone and don't ruin his flight.

In Japan, is it constitutional/legal to enforce masks at businesses?

Just laughed a lot ate lots of food and felt comfortable. No government wants that for its citizens?

I wouldn't put a question mark at the end of your otherwise perfect observation, Cricky ;) We are all owned by our governments and it's time to let us be free. Have you ever tried to work in another country without proper credentials and not using a spouse visa to work your desired job? That's just one example of how we are being enslaved.

While in reality, citizens are just hypocritical about the supersized urination outlet valve :)

Posted in: Man shot dead by police after knife attack in Kumamoto See in context

Cool. So after the attacker was shot 4 times, he was arrested at the scene for illegally carrying a knife and taken to the hospital. Nevertheless, a very rare occurrence in Japan I believe. I can hardly imagine the quarrel.

Posted in: N Korea fires ballistic missile that falls into Japan's EEZ See in context

Believed to have fallen? It is or it isn't. How many more minutes away from reaching Japan coast? Is the defence system not working? Because I'd just set an example and take this missile out in the open.

Posted in: Foreigners in Japan face significant levels of discrimination, survey shows See in context

No news at all. What strikes me (and angers me a little) is that only 20% of the foreigners participated in such a questionnaire.

Only 120 small and mid-size companies joined and gave their workforce off at 3pm today. The big companies don't even bother with this. That's like 0.01℅ #onlyinjapan

Posted in: 26 N Koreans rescued as cargo ship sinks off Japan See in context

Interesting. So while they where rescued, the ship was still travelling/drifting 18 miles. Not that it is impossible, just a huge distance to cover for a boat in distress.

Don't be a nerd and mark YOURSELF safe on FB if you live in Tokyo. Even I slept through (after a brief moment of AWAKENING) here in Narashino, Chiba.

Posted in: Americans don't think Trump is qualified. Why they elected him anyway See in context

Just reading the headline only instead of its content: It ain't Americans, it's mainly Japan. The author probably lives in Japan and has access to mainly anti-Trump news. Japan has the highest number of Hillary supporters in the world (right after China for other reasons) because of lack of English in order to be informed by American news sources as well. Japan also has the highest numbers of iPhone users in the world. And coincidentally, Apple is a Clinton supporter as well. Just saying, without being an expert. This new president is for the masses and not for the few globalist families that benefit from the current corrupt financial system. The market dropped and continues to drop for a little while as it is staged by the top "Crème de la Crème" whose wealth will drastically diminish throughout the next 4 years. There're so many other points that one can look into if one just keeps an open mind and knows how mass media is fabricated. Have you forgotten 9/11 and 3/11 already? Trump stated to pull companies out of China. Totally understandable and wise choice in my opinion. But again, am not an expert.

Yeah, sorry iPhone believers, you're on a sinking ship. Only in Japan, the numbers are vice versa. Only in Japan, that should tell you a lot about its folks and believers ;)

gaijinfo: in Japan ambulance consists of drivers only, hardly any paramedics. That's why all the news reads the same. Pronounced dead at hospital.

I always wanted to adopt 1 or 2 more children in addition to the 3 I have already, but was told that mixed marriages cannot do so in Japan.
