Posted in: Ghosn says he is helping everyone who stood by him See in context

The day Ghosn returns to Japan is the day Japan returns children kidnapped from their foreign parents who are legally entitled to be with them. Oh wait, that's never.

Once again, the Japanese just cannot convey a message without the use of cartoons for adults. Some of us can read - we don't need graphs, pictures, cartoons to dumb things down and make it easier to digest.

cricky:

Love animals but I'd also rather laws protecting children first,

Why? Did this law come at the expense of a law protecting children? Do you think it's impossible to have both? Are we supposed to just forget about animals? It's that sort of mentality which prevents progress in this world.

I'd rather see a total ban on pet shops. There are more than enough unwanted dogs and cats at animal shelters. Meanwhile, lots of them are euthanized because they are unwanted. This is a sick world filled with greedy people.

Maybe the company can come round my place and collect the cockroaches.

Tigers:

Don't forget, I think the other G7 countries are allowing long-term or permanent residents back in. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. Right now, I think Japanese can return to UK if they live there (and go through the UK/EU immigration gates at Heathrow, might I add). Reciprocity doesn't seem to exist in Japan. And I said it before, but Hong Kong is continuing to help bring back foreign residents from India, Pakistan and Nepal, despite many of them continuing to test positive as soon as they arrive in HK. Why? Because like other nations and unlike Japan, they have compassion and empathy. They know that residents have family, jobs and houses in their host countries.

Richard Gallagher:

I don't know where you are, but if you're stuck in Japan, just pray that nothing happens to your family back home. It's going to be a choice between attending their funerals and being locked out of Japan, or attending an i-funeral on your computer in Japan.

Right at this moment, my advice to countries doing quite well like NZ, Vietnam and Taiwan - don't agree to opening up flights to Tokyo yet. Let them get their sh t together first. Tokyo is NOT setting a good example.

Posted in: Should Japanese schools stop making kids write book reports? See in context

When I was at school back in my country, we hardly had any work during the summer. We either played, took a job, had a holiday or just did something completely different. I actually did do a bit of studying on my own because I wanted to. And everything still turned out ok. We didn't need cram school, didn't go to school on the weekends, and finished school by 3:30pm. We still managed to get to university.

Posted in: If you got tested today for the coronavirus and the result turns out negative, that doesn’t mean you won’t get it next week. So should people be tested regularly? See in context

This question is irrelevant in Japan. Getting the test is like striking it lucky in the lottery.

So American authorities are detaining two of their citizens for what may or may not have been a crime in Japan. Ok, in that case, send back that American woman to the UK. You know, the one who killed a boy because she didn't know what side of the road she was supposed to drive on and then fled back to US, falsely claiming diplomatic immunity.

People on trains are wearing masks which can't be worn in restaurants, bars and gyms.

Rubbish. Since my gym re-opened, everyone has had to wear masks. Yes, it's a bit uncomfortable, but I've managed so far. Haven't dropped dead from breathing in CO2.

If I were Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam or NZ, I'd be very careful before opening up to a hotspot like Tokyo.

What a sensible idea. I can't count the number of times I've had to tell restaurant staff I don't need a straw to drink from a glass. I can even lift my glass with one hand.

I would bet more than beers that third son of Mr. Koizumi weighs heavily on his heart. It must be one of his great regrets.

Did he ever let his ex-wife see her other two sons?

I was never interested in Glee (much preferred listening to the original version of the songs), but I did enjoy Devious Maids.

HK was handed on a silver platter to Beijing by Lord Patten.

Patten (or Fatty Patty, as he's known in HK) was given the job as a consolation prize after he lost a local election in UK. That's how much they thought of HK.

I guess even the Kims can spot a lame duck from thousands of miles away. They just don't want to waste time or energy. I'd even say they feel embarrassed to be on the same stage as that man-child.

Trump is relieved

Relieved? He didn't look it when he was speaking to reporters about it. He had his arms crossed - he does that when he's sulking.

Express grave concern, regrettable, shocking, etc, etc. Japan can just on the sidelines and watch other countries do something concrete. We know Japan is always just words, no action.

Even Brett Kavanaugh ruled against the man-child who must be fuming even more now. I worry the man-child may burst a vein before the elections.

At least one of them is crazy. Who knows, they could both be a bit mental.

I remember Depp from the first Elm Street movie. I always thought he and Ryder made a good couple - both with that Bohemian vibe.
