Posted in: Tokyo Stock Exchange to extend daily trading hours by 30 minutes See in context

They can't even keep the stock exchange from working unpaid overtime.

And really? They do hour long breaks for lunch?

I'm sure the rest of the world will put trading on hold so that Taro can go wait in line at 7-11 for 15 minutes.

Posted in: Was there no 'Song of 2021' in Japan? See in context


That “Usseewa” song is horrible.

I'm definitely not a fan of BTS, but that's all the minions talked about in 2021.

The choice should be a no brainer.........

Wait. I forgot. They aren't "Japanese."

This joker again..........

Q: How do you "show" you've done something for the people, distribute common face masks, pretend it cost "X" amount of tax money, and get away richer?

A: Make sure that "X" is the exact amount of tax funds you've embezzled over the years, right before you (conveniently) "resign" as Prime Minister.

It makes you wonder, how many of those masks came from the hoarded supply that Abe and his boys claimed during the pandemic to "cause" false scarcity during dire times.

Hospitalized, JUST BEFORE the Olympics.

Hospitalized, JUST BEFORE the elections.

This woman loves to take a break, conveniently JUST BEFORE major events happen.

Are things in the government even affected when she takes leave?

Take a day off, take a month, even a half year off.

I doubt anyone would notice the difference there, Koiks.

Kishida: Hey, Sugi. Where's that list?

Suga: What list?

Kishida: You know the automatic empty promises every new PM has to give.

Sugi: Oh, over there. Under the kyabakura mo..............I mean petty cash.

Posted in: Ota gov't employees in frantic pencil-shaving spree to meet election day See in context

City employees have been tasked with the monumental duty of sharpening each of the rush-ordered 10,000 pencils on their breaks in between work.

So instead of them taking a break and resting from work…….they make them do work on their break?

and for what?

People don’t know how to wash their hands yet, after going out in public in corona times?

just use regular pencils and have a couple of electric sharpeners at each voting station.

more unnecessary work given to people.

Posted in: Kyoto police using targeted YouTube ads to warn would-be voyeurs See in context

Yes, much better idea than say a national sexual predators list or harsher penalties that are actually enforced on the guilty.

And how many of the cops who this video is supposed to represent, are a part of the actual guilty party?

Waste of time. As usual.

Posted in: 47 trainee police officers punished for underage drinking, smoking See in context

I assume there is NO zero tolerance in the Police Academy in Japan either, right?

Generally this kind of rule breaking would result in expulsion or at least lowering in rank for such actions?

But what’s lower than a trainee? Being kicked out, I’d think.

So they’re going to (eventually) “enforce” laws in Japan.

Yet they can’t even follow them. Ok.

Sounds like they’re perfect for being J-Cops.

Welcome to the team!

I get turned on whenever I set foot in a library.

Well, I mean the Dewey Decimal system can be a cerebral aphrodisiac.

For psychos.

Laminated pamphlets could also be classified as a rampage starter as well.

For lunatics.

Posted in: Japanese celebrities urge young people to vote in general election See in context

but among those aged 18 and 19 it stood at around 30 percent, according to the government

That's because all they know how to do is follow others and study for the center or university exams.

Before Japan gets the young people to vote, they gotta teach them how to think and be independent.

Ask one of these young people what their favorite food is, they'll take at least 5 minutes to answer, or have to discuss it with their friends first.
