Did you consider the possibility that there was something already ongoing at his workplace, and what happened during his last shift is the event that broke the camel's back, and he decided to go through with it?

After having lived outside Japan for a few years now, it really gives perspective how hilariously weird it is that inemuri is acceptable in the Diet. Truly mind boggling considering how insulting that is to the average citizen, and no one gives a damn.

nakanoguy01: It's not that they will need it, it's becaus they will want it. even people with mild cases will think they need to be hospitalized.
It is true that people in Japan tend to go to the hospital/clinic much easier than most countries. If people follow the same logic with covid19, it will clog up the system in record time. In most countries people are told to wait it out at home if it's not "life threatening" level, and Japanese people would have a really hard time accepting this, since they are used to being able to visit hospital even if you have a normal "kaze".

This is like a bad joke. Have you heard his "song" God's Plan? I like hip hop myself but this is not music by any definition... boggles the mind.

Common in Tokyo. In Kyobashi, which is a pretty nice office area, also had a ramen place where cockroaches running on the floor. Workers did not seem to "see" them at all. Outside Tokyo I have never seen problems with hygiene standards. Shibuya is the worst.

Doesn't this kind of rocket launch have a huge environmental impact? Since everyone goes on about airplanes and carbon footprints, seems a bit odd, just for the sake of an entertainment show.

I completely understand why countries like Russia and Canada don't care about climate change - they are set to come out on top with a 2degree rise in temperatures. But America ? You guys are going to get hit hard by this
Don't forget that those countries coming "on top" will be the target of mass exoduses when feces hit the fan. Half the world will try to get in. Will not be pretty.

Some foreigners were found to have obtained their status by listing the names of companies that had no plans to hire them in their visa applications.
Based on the past tense "obtained" my understanding is that this means they successfully managed to get the status.
This would mean they did not check with the companies if the information given was true. Sounds unbelievable considering how strict the processes are. So do they actually only do random checks to selected people or something?

Hard to understand why he would stop the car on an expressway no matter what the circumstances -- especially near a curve. Panicked?
