Posted in: Honda goes small with first all-electric car See in context

Currently getting 580km to 650km on a tank of gasoline in my “mild-hybrid” Suzuki Stingray. Why on earth would I bother settling for less, for tiny, expensive pram?

Alfie, your comment, in this sweltering heat, cheered me up no end.

Which was nice! :)

Posted in: The survivor: Last Korean war criminal in Japan wants recognition See in context

My original comment was removed, deemed offensive, yet this whole article wants us to feel sympathy for a war criminal? THAT isn’t offensive????

I’ll say it again, I’ll send the poor fella some cash. ¥100 so he can phone someone that cares.

Cos, I for one, do not.

Posted in: British music stars resurrect Rock Against Racism See in context

More than 700 figures from Britain's music world, including popstar Rita Ora, One Direction singer Niall Horan and producer Nile Rodgers,

He might've worked with Bowie and some other lesser immortals, but Nile Rodgers is from New York, the last I looked.

Posted in: Japan's supercomputer suggests changes to travel, work amid airborne virus threat See in context


Sounds like the Super Computer should be the PM. Actually not a bad idea, let's ask the Super Computer about that?

As long as nobody asks it for The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, we should be fine.

You can turn it off but you still must pay. All citizens of Japan must pay for NHK , if you are not paying you can be fined and jailed. Anyone here not paying is irresponsible. It's the law so pay NHK everyone.

Must, eh? You, and who’s army are gonna make me?

Send the rozzers, I’m petrified.

No mention of red light.

Besides, IF the driver ran a red, then the bike did too. The pedestrian right of way stops on their red and the car has right as they will still be green. That is how it works here, no?

Posted in: The Beatles' legend lives on, 50 years after break-up See in context

@bass That’s the best post I’ve ever seen you write here. Except for the Yoko bit being the main catalyst. Lennon was itching to do something different before he met her. He could’ve met anybody and the result would’ve been the same I think. It just happened to be her. Besides, the boys were growing up, maturing. They all wanted separate lives. Take a look at the promo-video for “Something.” All four with their other halves, not together.

Posted in: The Beatles' legend lives on, 50 years after break-up See in context

When the Beatles went their separate ways in the early 1970s, few thought that half a century later the pioneering band would still influence pop music culture.

I stopped reading after this first sentence. Utterly ridiculous. They did more in their eight years together than many bands that are still together after 20, 30 or 40 years.

as i said in an earlier article, those who are capable of leaving tokyo should leave while they still can. this is assuming that you're not a carrier of the virus to which you'd better bug in instead in order to keep others safe. maybe this is just the crazy prepper in me saying this but when the masses and the government say something, that situation is already dire and you're already late. pardon me for being an "i told you so" guy but i told you so and i will i tell you things might not look well for tokyo unless the j-gov't do its job properly.

Japan has already survived countless disasters throughout its history, it can weather this one out.
