Fabulous remark and so true. And each kid has a different father, so much easier to collect welfare.

Doing fantastic on testing those with symptoms and not wasting time and money testing those not needing it.

@zoronto

Very large number 60 years or older. Where do these people get infected? Especially the 80+ years olds. This is why you need to increase the ridiculously low testing, so that their possibly asymptomatic contacts could be kept away

This is why you need to increase testing? Where the heck does that come from Dr.?

I have three safes. Each one includes a code and a riddle to find my money. Would love to see how someone could solve it.

Lucky they did not rape and abuse the poor little woman.

Isn't his uncle the guy that got arrested after hiding in the toilet for the university entrance exam? Maybe that info was on Rocket News.

The age to decide is 20, not 22. And the authorities do turn a blind eye when turning in a renewal application for the Japanese passport, even though the section asking you if you have another is highlited and in red. The bureaucrats say never mind and give it the ok. Dealt with it three times in the last 7 years. I know about the system.

I like the Ginza stores because they speak Japanese first and then English and then Chinese just like Yodobashii camera does. The staff are super helpful and polite.

If you go into a store with a zoro attitude, you should be respected the same.

Japan is fantastic

Nation wide testing was over 55,000. Does that make you happy?

No. Does it make you happy that with a population of 126 million, they tested 55,000?

Actually yes it does. It is warranted and statistically perfect. Or very close to perfect. Why should no symptom populous be tested?

By the way, I love and respect all your posts De. Zoro

Posted in: Kono denies reports of mass vaccine roll-out for general public in May See in context

Here's the leaked priority list:

1) LDP politicians and cronies

2) Business leaders

3) Olympic athletes and anything related to the Olympics

3) Tarento, comedians and other useless people on TV

4) Rest of Japanese people, with no particular priority -- who pays most gets it

5) Foreigners

I definitely believe this is true. Love your posts. You are my hero.

Japan pharma wants to produce their own but they never even got to base one. So the best they can do is to gear up the industry to purchase a license to make some other developed vaccine. Then the govt. will pay them to make it and all become quite rich in Yamaguchi-ken where it will be made.

As the comments move forward, lots of variations on the topic taking place and I think it is good.

I would like to remind everyone that those that get divorced, whether the wife or the husband, the one with the highest Kyosai Nenkin forfeits 50% to the ex spouse with the lowest or no kyosai nenkin. I do not know if you can start getting any back returns should your ex start collecting a higher return later.

Your regular kokuminnenkin money is not affected, but it is so much lower anyway. $100,000 equivalent salary for 26 years will get you four grand in that nenkin. Not sure how much forty years will get you. But imagine working forty years at fifty grand a year and if you have no kyosai nenkin nor savings? God forbid if you have a mortgage.

@Vanity: your income is low, but you sound like a person that lived by their means and did not waste money on unneeded consumer goods. I also bet you saved well, and that is what many people do.
