Simple and delicious. This and crab fried rice were my favorite meals when I was first in Japan.

I are some of of this at a Japanese restaurant shortly before the lockdown. It is GOOD.

I would rather have a refugee than a Republican of any income level as my next door neighbor.

These armchair warriors had better keep their mouths shut about this. Taking in foreign personnel who helped our troops in their TV entertainment wars is the least we can do for them, for all they did. Just like the Somali and Vietnamese immigrants.

DanielsanToday  10:30 am JST

The USA cannot even care for its own population of homeless, or properly care for senior citizens or the mentally ill. These Afghanis are in for a rude awakening when they discover that the American Dream is an outdated fantasy.

The American Dream is a lie for everyone. Still, these refugees will have a chance to make something for themselves. Contrary to popular myth, there are no free rides, not for refugees or immigrants. That's a Trumpian lie and we know he is unreliable.

She must be lots of fun at a party.

To be clear, she said:

"If the president's reported slip of tongue is true, he would be quite foolish as president of a country. We express great regret over the president using the word provocation that reporters use thoughtlessly," Kim said.

What a sourpuss shrew she is. She's just sassing off the yap again, she's peeved because the new POTUS ain't gonna kiss up to her bro Mr. Marshmallow Head. So she's gotta look tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-TUFF.

She needs to just shut up and go away. Kim Yo Jong is acting like she's BAD but she looks totally pathetic.

Women want men to stop viewing them merely as sex symbols, and yet they dress like this. (PS I'm totally gay so I'm not directly involved in this.)

Sex symbol status is fine as long as that star has some brains and talent. J-Lo has the looks but her music and films just plain suck. Total wankeroo.

Sugita’s cell phone was later found to contain photos of him abusing the woman by covering her face with a blanket and pinching her nose.

The fact that he photographed himself abusing her is not going to help him. he needs putting away for long time.

he apparantly is getting his kicks from beating her if he photographs himself doing it. What a sickio. What's he even doing working at a place like that?

It was 20 years ago that Saudi Arabians gave Bush II and his conservative buddies an excuse to destroy Afghanistan and Iraq.

JeffLeeToday  07:46 am JST

I exhort anyone to watch Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 911" on this important day. Absolutely brilliant, in light of events that happened AFTER the movie came out. Moore must have a crystal ball. One of the very few (like myself) who could see the real situation as it was.

P. Smith

You should have added "wealthy and priviledged Al-Qeda Saudi Arabians" with a few Jordanians and Pakistanis thrown in. Naturally, that was the cue for Bush/Rumsfeld to target impoverished Taliban (!) in Afghanistan (!) and then Iraq, which committed to no terror against the US homeland.

I saw that film. I also remember on 9-11-01 Bush 43 saying that Saddam Hussein was the 'greatest danger' to the world, which was a total LIE. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Overthrowing that rotten bastard left a void which led to the rise of ISIS which is a menace.

But the GOP and its supporters made a profit from all of this and things led to the rise of the Antichrist Trump, who BTW is not a Republican but a fascist pig. And because of that, the greatest danger to the USA is not Iraq, not al-Qaida, not ISIS but the traitors within. The past few years and Jan. 6 of this year have shown that.

A question to ask is, were there any other hikers nearby at all? There are some racist cruds in the Idaho area who don't like this guy's kind.

Posted in: Japan’s oldest McDonald’s worker defies age barriers, inspires everyone at the age of 93 See in context

HBJSep. 9  09:44 am JST

On the surface this seems to be heartwarming and inspirational blah blah blah.

Actually it's an indictment on something that is horribly wrong in society.

If he's working because he needs the money to support himself, then that says a lot about the lack of support provided to the elderly.

As someone mentioned previously, many people don't know how to retire. They only know how to work.

Many people see working less as retiring.

Spending your twilight years working nightshifts at McDonalds means something, somewhere, has gone drastically wrong.

Some of my retired uncles and aunts have took the initiative and gone travelling, often in groups (guided if overseas) - they go to Branson, Great Smoky Mountains, St. Louis, California, Hawaii. They take jets to Rome, Berlin, Krakow, Medigorge (sp?). One of my aunts in Kentucky has the hobby of belly-dancing. She learns from an Arab immigrant woman instructor, and it's a good way to exercise (it has no sexual overtones whatsoever).

any of these things and more can be rewarding, enriching and good for you. Working and slaving at a McJob at 93 is just plain depressing to me. It's about as bad as watching the idiot box all day and grousing about how screwed up everything is.

Pukey2Sep. 8  10:28 am JST

starpunk:

You may be surprised to hear that quarantine-free travel between HK and the mainland was possible before the pandemic. It was even possible between US and Japan. Does that mean Japan was being integrated into USA? Please can you stop jumping on the bandwagon and using hatred for the CCP to criticize everything. I am not a fan of the CCP, but every other country recognizes HK as part of China, and travelling between the two is the norm.

Before the pandemic it wasn't a problem for anyone. Japan seemed to be doing ok until the Olympics. The USA had half a million dead last year because of an irresponsible lying fascist pig stirring up violence. The most casualties of any nation because of a loser. An additional 100000 since because of some people still being morons. But at least there are restrictions in America and other countries like Canada.

As for China and HK? The CCP just doesn't give a damn, that's all there is to it.

@Simian Lane

I’m so sick and tired of people removing my freedoms. Sometimes I wish the virus had just swept round the world unhindered and then much quickly afterwards we just got in with it

That means a large number of conservative right and conspiracy theorist would get infected and possibly pass away which is why many people are still dying, and the economy has been stagnant while placing stress on the medical industry and limiting people's lives.

Isn't that happening now?

We have those idiot AM radio and TV junkies, Trumpian disciplea and Faux News sheeple listening to the crap as well. They're out there in their 'freedumb' rallies and harassing medical college students. At least TWO AM mayhem radio anti-vaxx gurus recently got CoVid and died but these chumps just don't geddit. And you have these religious fanatics claiming that the virus was sent by God to rub out 'queers', 'infedels', 'Commies' and whatever. Never mind some state governors. CoVidiots!

AddfwynSep. 7  10:08 am JST

I...find this more depressing than inspirational, honestly.

I get wanting to be active post-retirement, but to do so by working for a faceless conglomerate that can't possibly care about you seems like the ultimate picture of late-stage capitalism. I can think of at least a dozen things that would be a better way to stay active.

Speculative, but I can't help but feel this is one of those cases where Japan has so conditioned somebody to work every minute of their life that they don't know how to actually retire. Maybe I am wrong and he is truly passionate about this work, but I just find that hard to believe.

I find it very depressing indeed. Many retired folks go to college to get another degree in anythng just for kicks, or they join fraternal organizations or they do what I enjoy a lot -TRAVEL. Travelling, exploring - you can keep on learning all the time. It doesn't end at HS and it shouldn't.

Some of them pursue hobbies they didn't have time for before. Skiing, kung-fu, belly-dancing. Even Bingo could make a hell of a difference. I just can't imagine anyone being passionate about this work either, esp. after hearing from so many people I know who've done it. I've heard all about the speedy pace, the lippy sass from the supers, the Romper Room 'team talks' and other insults. Immigrants often get these jobs in America because most citizens don't want to bother. And don't get me started about Wally World (Walmart). I'd rather work for Satan than those chumps,

What the heck does a man need women's used underwear for? Filthy habit.

Peter NeilToday  12:16 am JST

There was no real need for America to go to war against Iraq and Afghanistan. Nothing was achieved.

The defense industry has a poker face, putting out the mantra that this is serious business, young men in harms way, kill them over there before the kill us here, reform these countries into democracies, win the hearts and minds of the people, etc., but they're smiling inside.

They got the American people to not even think about the fact that they got $11 trillion (trillion, with a t) in taxpayer money since 9/11.

And this 'nation-building' biz has never worked either. Somalia waa a failure, Haiti in 1994 was a whitewashed urban guerilla war, Afghanistan was broadvast on TV like a football game, wars with Iraq settled nothing and made things only worse. Lives were lost, more were damaged and as rotten Saddam Hussein was - getting rid of him left a void that led to the rise of the even worse ISIS. And now Afghanistan is disunited, let the Taliban and ISIS-K duke it out. it's all been pointless, bin Laden is dead. It's past time to exit.
