Many elevators automatically stopped, including those at Tokyo's metropolitan government building, temporarily trapping some people.

At 10:41pm?

Is it normal for them to be at office at that hour? Or do they work 24/7?

well it's ironic considering Turks are basically the Turkmans, Uzbeks, Afghans settled in Anatolya. Would be nice if they were more welcoming of their relatives.

But, the fact that they are illegals in Turkey is also a big factor. Difficult times for Afghan brethren.

Why do we even have volunteers in such mega events? These events generate billions in revenue probably. Paying a daily wages for these "volunteers" should be a grain in a ricefield for the economics of the Games.

Give people tax breaks for not reproducing.

I doubt any government would say okay to not receiving those "precious taxes".

2024 - Paris

2028 - Los Angeles

Demand for hosting the Olympics has decreased. Paris and LA were the only cities for the upcoming 2 Games. The Olympics has lost its reputation because of absurd demands put on host cities and the waste of money, space, infrastructure in the aftermath of most of the instances.

And especially after this year's backlash from people in Japan, the Olympics will no longer be a beacon of hope. It's just another means of making money for greedy politicians.

Liberal Democratic Party is considering drawing up another large-scale supplementary budget to finance fresh economic stimulus, apparently looking to win public support ahead of a general election that must be held by November.

There will probably be a lot more profit from the Stupid Games. We definitely want another stimulus package. No matter which stupid party is in charge. We've been under depessing, never-ending SOE for last 3 months, ffs.

If you think about it now, how silly was the Abenomask program. 2 pieces of child-size mask for all. They probably thought the pandemic would end in 2 weeks. Shows how little ahead this government can see.

This is utterly horrendous. We have basically been under some form of ES for the past 3-4months and things have not improved. But businesses no longer force WFH. And now we are asked not to go out for another month at least. This is unbearable. At least give us some economic stimulus, since you earning that profit from the Games, ffs. Incompetent, mingling bastards.
