Posted in: Seoul mayor found dead after sexual harassment complaint made against him See in context

He brought it on himself, from the list of lewd actions he continued to launch on his secretary. Not one instance, but a pattern. It's all about power, but she had the upper hand in the hand. Men, why can't they behave themselves?

No mention of reducing the prime mover: consumption, driver of the need for energy. On all fronts.

No hair on the mannikins and no masks. Which is the most appealing?

Posted in: Some people argue that mandating anyone to wear face masks during the pandemic is a violation of human rights. Do you agree? See in context

If I was in the USA, mask wearing would make a lot of sense. Not so much here in Japan, even Tokyo. Use common sense and keep distance, wash hands. Stay out of enclosed areas. Mask is not the magic talisman. I just wish the gym would make masks optional, so I can go back and work out without a suffocating useless virtue signal slapped across my breathing apparatus.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 124 COVID-19 cases Friday; 70% in their 20s and 30s See in context

Where are these tests in Tokyo? Do I have to go to a small, crowded room full of other people improperly wearing their masks? Uh, outdoor testing anywhere? Why is this information not on the front page of JT?

Would be helpful.

I have always enjoyed the light-hearted, yet pointed, artistry of these green and white artistic creations. ON the other hand, I wish the JT/Jgov would put on every cig packette sold the gruesome photos of ravaged lungs, lips, and lives, aka Australia.

Great. Will gyms finally stop requiring masks??? Take down the plastic shower curtains (gross)? Can't wait.

Posted in: Pandemic pushes geisha to get online See in context

Vince, the physical proximity is the attraction. On my computer screen? Not so much. Geisha culture is far from boring. I really wonder how it will cope with "social distancing" until a vaccine is found.

Posted in: Tokyo to reopen gyms in next phase of post-emergency road map See in context

Please god no, no mask rules in the gym. See articles in all today's newspapers about wearing masks while exercising leads to heatstroke. Plus, who can breathe properly while really working out and wearing a white paper face doily.

The photograph is weird. It must be taken at the only 7-11 store in Japan not to have a wall of packets of ciggies behind the register.

COVID-19 absolutely loves smokers and attacks their weakened lungs like they were chocolate covered ice cream desserts. Conbini stores-stop selling cigs and vapor-cigs. Make your profits on something else. We all pay for this nicotine addiction with our national health insurance.

Get it right, people. Those paper masks are not capable of filtering out the minuscule C. virus. Wear them if you are sick (or a hay fever sufferer). Otherwise, just wishful thinking.

Gym on Twitter for Arnold Schwarzenegger's recent tweets. He put together a nifty workout for those stuck at home, including links to videos. He is such a guy! The best. Hope this helps. My own gym is open. Studio classes resume next Tuesday, so far.
