As if it came out of from the plot of the adult videos so common in the country, people like them are going to ruin the culture of onzen and sento.

Japan still going long with the cases, but at least the disease is now much less risky and people are better protected.

So sad seeing producers making huge efforts to promote their products in a market that will close at the slightest excuse the CCP can find. I know they really want to sell their products in China, but maybe giving up in a market so easily manipulated would be better in the long run.

What are you f** talking about? Do you even believe the bla bla you wrote?

I was going to comment that using profanities and personal attacks is against the rules here, but seeing your latest comments:


It is that is all you do, calling other commenters stupid and telling them to shut up (and in CAPS LOCK no less) so I guess you are being protected by the moderators.

The guy is not as bad as some of his predecessors, but Japan gets in worse shape every time there is someone too long at the top.

Posted in: AI and machine learning are improving weather forecasts, but they won't replace human experts See in context

eventually AI will replace humans in these kind of problems where variables are controlled every year. Maybe in 5-10 years weather forecast will be done automatically and with more precision than now. Sad for the people doing this work right now but maybe they can find jobs helping the AI

Posted in: Long COVID affects more older adults; shots don't prevent it See in context

Omicron is milder, so maybe long covid is also rarer, what nobody can deny is that vaccines protect against both short and long covid, but i dont know about simple infetion without symptoms. Antibodies are antibodies so having lots of them should always be helpful.

Hopefully the electricity for the buses will come from relatively clean sources, if not they are only moving the pollution from their city to other locations.

That completely defeats the point of having a press conference, which I completely approve.

Posted in: Tokyo Governor Koike hospitalized due to fatigue See in context

This is not the time to leave the government of the city headless, Japanese really need to consider with more care their overworking patterns, taking it easy at times is much better than going all in until you need to take a looong break.

what is the point of local pilots directing the passage if the owners of the ship still have to pay for any problem?

of course the cruise company is going to pay back everything and an extra fee for the ruined vacations of the passengers, right? it would not be logical to participate without even this basic agreement.
