The far right and far left have yet another thing in common: no sense of humour.

JapanToday's, I'm assuming, American readership appears to skew alarmingly antivaxxxxx.

Posted in: Main opposition party pledges to achieve growth by reducing inequality, poverty See in context

There is no "main" opposition party. There used to be, but then they had the bright idea of splitting in two, thus ensuring that their already slim chance of regaining power became even slimmer.

Are Mayu and Misaki Matsumoto sisters?

No. In fact, the article has their names wrong.

It should be Mayu Matsumoto and Misaki Matsutomo.

Posted in: Amazon unveils robot that can patrol homes See in context

It's a tablet on wheels, with a cupholder.

In other words: not a robot.

Posted in: Spectator ban no barrier for Paralympics: IPC chief See in context

These people are unbelievably deluded as to how many people actually care about watching the Olympics, let alone the Paralympics, pandemic or no pandemic.

Posted in: Paralympian arrested for assaulting hotel security guard See in context

A man allegedly knocked another man to the floor cracking his rib. So what! Sympathies to the victim but it's hardly front page news.

I never understand comments like this.

Boomers.

Not to sound rude, but are crowds rushing to see paralympians?

I had my doubts about that too.

Not hard to pick the odd one out in that photo! And a health care worker?

Sorry. What point are you trying to make?

The old "What's wrong with Wolfie?" trick from Terminator 2.

Nice one.

Posted in: Suga says Japan has secured enough COVID-19 'antibody cocktails' See in context

According to a recent poll, just over 20% of Americans identify as antivaxxers.

They would appear to be well represented on JapanToday.

That pumpkin was borderline trypophobia-triggering anyway.

Cuomo's political career is over. Maybe he can get a job as an essential worker.

Posted in: Man dies after being assaulted, thrown off bridge in Osaka See in context

Yes, why is this site reporting that the perpetrator is Japanese when nowhere else is?

It's highly likely that it was one of the victim's fellow countrymen.

Listening to the audio, you can hear the killer saying something just after the victim falls in the water, and it doesn't sound like Japanese to me.

Anyway, whatever his nationality, I hope they catch him quickly.

Posted in: Tokyo reports record 2,848 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 7,629 See in context

Very little to do with the Olympics. Just like some other countries, a premature, post-corona mood is setting in.

vips ??? lol

Virus infected persons.

Anyway, I can't imaging sitting in a near-empty stadium will be much fun.

Perhaps they can populate the seats with androids and pipe in some crowd noise for ambience.
