I'm sorry what? They were arrested for abandoning the body or actually killing him?

Posted in: Woman with COVID-19 loses baby after being forced to give birth prematurely at home See in context

So many people think the Japanese health care system is great. It's really not at all. If this were the U.S. she'd have been in a hospital right away and that baby would have had a better chance. Perhaps Japan needs to let more hospitals treat covid.

Posted in: Half of Japan's population has received at least 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine See in context

I had my first dose on the 5th this month. Unfortunately it seriously exacerbated some underlying conditions I have. I've been stuck at home since then slowly recovering. Now I have no hope of being fully vaccinated. I don't know what to do.

People get angry we are there. People get angry when we leave. We tried to train Afghans to defend themselves, but they didn't take training seriously enough. Did they really expect us to stay forever?

Stop overdressing like Darth Vader. Stop drinking Strong Zero and Chuhai. Stop playing sports in the middle of the day when it's hottest. Common sense really.

Just got my first dose 3 hours ago and my body is certainly reacting to it. I think tomorrow is a sofa and Xbox day. At least I know it's working...or is it quasi-working?

Kids in Japan hardly have any free time to pursue interests outside of school or cram school. No wonder...

There is nothing wrong with turning back or asking for help. Her calling it off shows her maturity and experience.
