Have to start somewhere. Elders are a precious commodity that we should always cherish.

Guys, stop it. He's doing his job as a prime minister. If he had not shown up, you'd be blasting him for showing a lack of sympathy. Some people can do no right.

@darknuts

Well said. Regardless what the guy says or does people complain. Plenty of time later for that.

"condolences to those who lost loved ones."

Agreed. Repugnant that at least one person disagrees.

It might not be that they disagree. When viewing articles on your phone it's easy to miss the up-vote and hit the down-vote by mistake. I'm just trying to offer a positive side to it.

"I ask the people of Japan to remain vigilant against landslides and flooding rivers."

And the winner of the most pointless public statement by a rich man who has never spent a moment in danger his whole life goes to...

No matter what Abe says or does he's criticized here. Sheesh....Give it a rest for just one day while Japan and it's families recover from this tragedy.

Watch women get upset because they can't use the toilet

Seriously, you don't have to do that extreme in order to see them get upset. Just look at them and most will shoot you an angry glance.

I love Japan. But I'm so glad I booked my travel time there before the Olympics and all the people that will arrive. No interest in being there at that time. Fall and Spring, the best of times there for me.

That's just great. As a first timer I picked coming to Tokyo during Rugby (/s). I wanted to experience Halloween. Guess the only saving grace is most of my time there will be after Rugby is over.

Think about it... USA dominance is not going anywhere, it's truly a country of business and humans flock from all over the world for a piece of the American Pie. Politics is good theatre but in the USA it's always about the money..

Well said "JustMyThoughts". Most of the negative commenters do not understand the comment above.

I'm not going out that way. Once I start needing a nappy, it's a bottle of brandy and a whole bunch of pills for me.

I understand what you mean. But when that day finally arrives for you and it's time to carry out your plan your survival instincts might just kick in.

Lousy statement above. I never understand someone's need to generalize.

Relationships can be difficult - lots of emotions and people acting irrational. Relationships while married, well that's just plain wrong. I would hope his wife had already started divorce proceedings and that this guy finally gets some help.

Smith,

Awesome comments.

I always appreciate your input and I agree with you so often that it is mad.

Sorry but I'm not a fanboi. 86% of your oil goes thru that strait. If you do not want to participate then plant a few of those ridiculous oversized fans off your coast.

It would be really swell if everyone (Dems, Repubs, et. al)would get to work. American politics is like a GD fourth grade class of whiners and rabble rousers.

I never thought I would hear this from Chip...... nailing both sides of the aisle! Thank you Chip and very well written and I could not agree with you more! Well done Sir!

I foresee this initiative having about the same impact as Premium Friday.

Underrated comment of the day shown above.

This works until management wants a meeting and most people are supposedly working from home. What about a meeting via cam you say? Then management finds out people are out running personal errands instead of at home telecommuting. It only works for a short period of time and then it's cancelled and everyone is back to the office permanently.

Posted in: Saudi Olympic official reportedly hugged female hotel worker in Tokyo See in context

What a disgusting country Saudi Arabia is.

Well then mark it off your bucket list of places to visit. I love it when people generalize. I suspect most Saudis would not "hug" a woman they do not know - yes there is probably more to the story. Japan has a certain culture and so does Saudi Arabia. You should certainly do your best to respect that country's culture and traditions that you are in. I love Japan, but why do they have certain sections on trains for women?

Posted in: Japan sets up working group on impact of Facebook's Libra See in context

Given that Facebook can't protect user data

If you're that concerned then don't sign up for Facebook. Most of it is just a photo op for the Democrats to rail against the system and grab votes. Use a freaking ad blocker like UOrigin and delete your tracking cookies using CCleaner. It's just that simple.

Only a fool would allow this company to handle their financial affairs.

Then simply opt out of Libra. It's backed by major credit companies so check your freaking statements like you should normally be doing anyway. It's really just that simple.

People suffer from extreme paranoia.

Posted in: Abe apologizes to relatives of leprosy patients for their suffering See in context

I do want people treated with compassion. But 1907.... We simply did not have the extensive medical or scientific knowledge to know much about the disease so I'm not sure placing blame on the governmental institutions is totally warranted. I'm in the U.S. so maybe there is more here culturally that I do not understand, regardless, I still feel heartbroken for the families and individuals involved.
