Tob:

Two is not a trend. What is a trend is mass shootings in general, and police brutality. Just another day in freedom-loving America.

Having said that, I wouldn't mind seeing Biden have another 4-year term!

He's vile, nasty, corrupt. America deserves to have him as the next president.

Which is why I say having the highest population sometimes isn't something to boast about.

Posted in: What's the best onsen facility you have been to in Japan? See in context

I was going to say my local onsen because it was cheap. But having looked at the website the other day, I've changed my mind. Pre-covid it was about 650 yen. Now it's about 950 yen.

Anonymous:

I have to say, I take more showers at the gym than at home. Sometimes, I don't even have a single shower at home during the week. But I would never want an apt without one, because you never know when you might need it. Using the gym means I can have a hot shower for as long as I like, without having to worry about the gas bill.

What next, apts with no toilets?

Luddite:

Trying to normalise and glamourise homes that are not fit for use. These places would not be legal in many countries, shouldn’t be in a first world country like Japan.

There are channels on YT which try to normalize incredibly small apts. It just isn't right. This is not something people in a developed country should have to put up with.

You don't need to make a charitable donation. If you're a tax-payer, you're already donating.

Japan can thank America and the Plaza Accord for the sinking of their economy. Trying to do the same with China now.

Exceedingly good:

Not a surprise. Most Serbians are supporting Russia. You wouldn't actually expect them to be pro NATO.

Their memories of being bombed by NATO are still fresh in their minds. I still remember NATO destroying the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, killing innocent people inside.

Republicans and Democrats are just as bad as each other. Both conniving, selfish, corrupt, war-loving.

If the west would stop supporting coups, wars and taking advantage of resources in poorer countries, there wouldn't be so many people desperate to leave their homes.

Up the sanctions. Switch off the Sakhalin taps providing gas to Japan. That will really hurt Russia.

Posted in: Commentator Dokic hits out at 'fat-shaming' trolls at Australian Open See in context

The other day I came across an interview with her three years ago on Ozzie TV. She'd lost a lot of weight and looked stunning, so I was shocked that she'd gained all the weight back. Th French player, Bartoli, also suddenly gained a lot of weight when she retired. They shouldn't change just to satisfy other people. and fat-shaming them for their appearance isn't right. But people have to think about their health. Being obese is not healthy. And health is the number one reason why obese people should lose weight. Anyway, Dokic suffered a lot under her father.

I also remember her win over Hingis. But this came after Hingis' mental breakdown and humiliation at the 1999 French Open Final, when after months of taunting and disrespecting Steffi Graf, and showing no sportsmanship during the match, going over to the other side, arguing with the umpire and managers, lost the match when she was close to winning. It gave me great pleasure to see Dokic beat her a few weeks later.

Posted in: Sustainable influencers take on fast fashion See in context

Fast fashion isn't necesarrily the main problem. The problem is that people just over-buy and throw stuff away after a year or two. I like Uniqlo clothes, but I don't shop often, simply because their clothes last ages. I have T-shirts and sweaters from them which have lasted well over a decade, and still going strong.

These people are cockroaches. I don't know how this country tolerates so much noise pollution, whether it's hot-rodders, music blasting out in supermarkets, noisy politicians with megaphones, or pachinko parlors.

Last time people held up blank signs in the UK, they got arrested. Compare this with those holding up blank signs in China and nothing happened to them.

On another note, Diana is probably rolling in her grave at the mere mention of 'Queen' Camilla.

Posted in: BOJ undeterred by threat to consumers from above-target inflation See in context

Right now, not one 'leader' of the west or Japan cares about any threat to its consumers or citizens. They don't have to worry about putting bread on their tables or choosing between food or heating. They're more concerned about pleasing America and carrying on with the war machine. No money for healthcare but lots for weapons.

Posted in: Fans wait for hours at Tokyo zoo to see panda being sent to China in February See in context

fu:

If Japan was like China, they'd harvest sperm and eggs, then work with other zoos to get panda sperm and eggs for breeding without telling China. Eventually, China would catch them and demand payment for rental/theft ... but Japan could point at all the intellectual property theft performed in China and refuse.

Christ, you have a big and wild imagination. Here, we're talking about pandas, and yet there's another tangent to China bashing, as usual.
