Posted in: 70-year-old man arrested after brawl with over 10 bikers See in context

I read about this in the Japanese bike press. They were a group of ‘ normal ‘ folk out for a spot of gentle weekend touring and were apparently dangerously tailgated by this guy on a single lane road who wanted to get where he was going faster than they were going. They were riding big bikes and not driving dangerously or slowly enough to cause a nuisance. The driver needs his license revoked. Shouldn’t be driving

Who’s to say the 76 year old didn’t just decide to cross the road wherever and whenever she decided was convenient for her? That might have made it very difficult for the driver to stop and hence the nurse refuting the allegations. I see old folk do this all the time.

Watching a freshly painted wall dry would honestly be more interesting. Then there’s the ekiden relay race, another unbearably boring part of new year in Japan.

Superb analogy. Unfortunately many people would then say' I'm don't need no one telling me how to drive' ( double negative in purpose to hint at a lack of education )

I don’t see why everyone is complaining about this. If the poor ole cops didn’t get out of their cost little police boxes to do this , they’d be bored stiff. Gives them something to do!

In the uk there is a 9pm watershed where programs before 9pm must be suitable for all ages. This is being aired at 9pm which is kind of late for young kids to watch tv surely it’s a question of parents having enough common sense to make sure they don’t allow their kids to watch such content late in the evening. I speak as a parent of a 4th grade elementary school student. No tv, Netflix etc after 9pm .

so right. I know a top manager at Shionogi really well and he told me the whole company is strangled by a level of management in their late 50s and 60s who are too scared to open a window on a calm day. The ceo is a despot who controls with an iron fist and their cash cow was antibiotics, now it’s patents which will soon expire. They are now settling up a joint venture in china because if they don’t get the Covid 19 pharmaceuticals into the market before AstraZeneca, Takeda etc do, they are dead.

Never going to get the same respect from the public abroad as Errol Spence, fury, usyk, triple g, Terrence Crawford, canelo, beterbiev, Hugo Chavez, Tyson, haggler, foreman, bjs, aj, etc etc until, until he moves up a few weight divisions. Then it can happen

that’s one difference many might say between Japanese culture and UK culture. In the UK personal expression through music, clothes, transportation etc is deeply ingrained in the national psyche, not the overwhelming urge to always blend it and not stick out.

regarding the article, the French get upset at the drop of a hat often. I was living in France and found an English newspaper in a local store. The shop keeper rolled his eyes at my delight upon finding it.

macron needs to reel in these illegal immigrants. It’s his duty to stop illegal immigrants that are already in his country from threatening the borders of other countries.

they were already in the west. The wanted to go to England due to the easy money to be had for illegal immigrants who claim to be asylum seekers. Money which should be spent on infrastructure for legitimate uk citizens.

If people didn’t have guns, this wouldn’t be a story. Road rage happens everywhere. Americans, with their arrogant assertions that they are always right and never wrong, and their beloved guns, however, make a situation where tempers fray into a potentially lethal confrontation

leave china to their own affairs. Exactly. The problem is the Chinese can’t keep to their own affairs. World wide internet assaults on companies and governments by Chinese agencies are rife. Also, why don’t they come clean about the source of this coronavirus?
