When those racists know their victim knows karate, they think twice. And some grannies fight back with wooden planks!

The clampdowns will be more strict -glad to be in the UK where the virus is being eradicated.

So, did you manage do get the vaccination with the NHS, courtesy of tax-paying UK residents?

Google is your friend Pukey. Anywhere between 17-22k all in. By the way that is cheaper than what yo have to pay in London to get the right forms as demanded by Japanese Immigration to come back...Plus your day 2 and day 8 tests in the UK are not free. You have to pay. Catches all over the place.

The test and certificate at Heathrow only costs about 80 pounds which doesn't come anywhere near 17-22,000 yen. Plus, I had to pay well over 20,000 yen for a limousine because we're not allowed to use public transport from Haneda/Narita. Plus, are these day 2 and 8 tests in the UK obligatory (if you stay home?).

Catches all over the place, yes. But more so in Japan. I don't see the French having to pay for these tests.

Most of my older relatives abroad have already had their first vaccination. In Japan, the most important people in the country, the Olympic athletes, haven't even had theirs yet.

The boys told police they did it because they thought it would be fun.

It sure would be fun if they'd glued themselves to the toilet seat!

Is kinda sad when muslim had to cry for aid in western countries and even in Japan, while the whole middle east is turning a blind eye toward these crimes. Heck, they practically are ignoring it. Aren't they very protective of their religion?

LOL! The Middle East (especially the peninsular where construction workers and domestic workers/slaves dropping dead like flies) and Japan have shameful working conditions themselves, especially for foreign workers. Maybe that's why. Saying something might put yourself in the spotlight.

jefflee:

Do the airlines and immigration/airport authorities recognize the results or certificates issued by these hole-in-the-wall places?

I'd like to know too. Is there also a catch? Like, is it going to cost 15,000 yen to get a certificate needed to travel abroad? That's another dirty trick those clinics have up their sleeves. At London Heathrow Airport, they just print it off an ordinary printer right in front of your face. Maybe 5p for the paper and ink?

Posted in: China warns Washington not to boycott Winter Olympics See in context

China can't demand. While I don't care what happens to any future Olympics, I do think there is a double standard. It was known that Russians were cheating bigly, and that they were killing gays and have done nothing against racism. And yet, there was no boycott. The result? More cheating and absolutely no change in human rights. And they're still killing off political opponents. I don't know whether this preferential treatment towards Russia was because most of them are white or because Russia isn't giving America a run for its money with regards to economy size and power. So why exactly was there no boycott of Sochi?

Mar. 25 07:12 pm JST Posted in: New Zealand Olympians to get early access to COVID-19 vaccine  See in context

aah, must be great to be a member of the elite.

There's a difference. NZ has by and large contained the pandemic and there are very few cases, so the need for vaccination is not so urgent. And also, NZ athletes will be travelling to an infected country, so they need to be protected, unlike NZers who are staying withing their own borders. Japanese athletes aren't travelling anywhere.

bassfunk:

No, conservatives don’t like this guy at all, but they know he’s not the real threat, Xi is.

The ONLY reason why you and the crazy GQP think Xi is the greatest threat is because China is about to overtake USA as the biggest economy soon. Amerika wants a global monopoly on power and is not willing to share it with anyone else, even if with an 'ally' like Japan or India. If Russia were the second largest economy, you can bet the GQP will be panicking about Putin. If India, then GQP would be turning on Modi. Your fat guy loser was willing to make private deals with any dictator, be it Putin, Kim or Xi.

But sure, if you want to be friends with Putin, go ahead.

By the way, the fat guy lost.

Why? It was Muslim land before the Han Chinese showed up and subjugated them. Let the Han Chinese get out.

Sure. Let the Japanese get out of Ryukyu. Let the Americans get out of Hawaii (or the whole of America, except for the natives). Where do we stop? I'm sure North Africa didn't always used to be muslim.

There is a word for this in Mexico. It is called Doxing, and it is a crime.

I think the word doxing (from docs) is now universal.

That guy looks like a creep, anyway.

This disgusting excuse of a tax-payer funded worker needs to know who is paying his salary and who he is accountable to. I wonder how he would feel if his address and details of his private life were splashed everywhere.
