Posted in: Tokyo reports 342 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,030 See in context

Jumping in because I see many posts asking about how many tests... on all of these daily articles, the words "new coronavirus cases" right in the first sentence are hyperlinked to a PDF file where they give the daily tests over the past 3 days as well as the 3-day average. Now, whether you believe that number, or not, is a different story, but you can get your numbers for Tokyo there.

Anyway, going back to lurk mode now, have a wonderful evening everyone.

"Meanwhile, they are having a hard time infiltrating the Japanese mob due to the fact that they still communicate by Fax."

Posted in: Man arrested for spraying NHK fee collector with fire extinguisher See in context

When we moved, we got rid of our TV and never got a new one. The guy who came to get us to sign up actually refused to step in our house to confirm if we had a TV or not (we offered to let him come in and look). He simply left and never came back.

A few months later we got a contract in the mail and a bill for back fees. I merely called NHK HQ customer service and, being the jerk that I am, spoke only in English. I told them I don’t have a TV, and they said OK then we will void the contract and you don’t owe us anything. They haven’t been back since, and this was about 6 years ago. Dunno, maybe I got lucky?
