Posted in: In your experience, how hard or easy is it to get a driver's license in Japan? What were the written and driving tests like? See in context

A foreign doctor friend of mine says he passed the medical license test on the first trial, but failed the driving license test 3 times. I think this can explain a lot.

@Numan

Burial fees are too d$%n high! 

If someone is willing to let her father rot away at their home for months then she can also just choose the cheapest burial ever, pension fraud is easier to believe.

seems like kim's double is desperate to pass for the real thing so now is throwing missiles to better fit the role.

@Raw Beer

The Omicron rollout is progressing smoothly. 

Celebrating people getting infected maybe getting hospitalized or worse? that is a new low, almost as bad as the site letting people openly enjoy the misfortune of others.

Posted in: Japanese parents weigh pros, cons of having their children vaccinated See in context

As soon as I saw the title I was sure the antivaxxer crowd would assemble to make personal attacks and link to disinformation sites to convince anybody naive enough to believe them about the horrors of children killing vaccines.

I am disappointed to the core to see I was completely right. Even the lame autism relationship appeared.

So the game is to give as much power to China and then complain on why it got so powerful? nonsensical.

I hope I can just pop out while still in a good condition, I already have everything prepared just in case some truck gets me tomorrow, I would hate to go over 100 and be limited about what I can do or not.

Just beginning, so it is way to early to sign victory, as long as people keep taking care cases will not turn into many deaths.

Cowardly exit that is sadly still too common in Japan.

The only good thing about this is that professional sports are not exactly the brightest so they are usually caught quickly.

At least people still refrain from talking or riding without masks in Japan, crowds are going to be impossible to navigate thanks to profits being the only priority.

Posted in: Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai denies making sexual assault claim See in context

it seems she choose to live then, too bad her career is now over, just because she dare to accuse a powerful person of rape. At least she will now be left alive after proper indoctrination not to oppose the CCP.

half his life wasted in fighting for justice from a dictatorship and a weak Japanese goverment, sad ending for his story.

Posted in: Japan to speed up booster shots See in context

lol, if antivaxxers end up giving up and just making personal attacks that must mean things are getting desperate for them. now everybody knows how great vaccines have become, accusing everybody that recognize this to be paid shills smells like lack of actual arguments.

it may seem a huge waste of time to let this go on for 90 minutes, but at least nobody got hurt or died, that is a nice thing compared with how other countries would have handled the thing.

Posted in: Foreign Ministry to create post for Taiwan-related issues See in context

so a new post to throw all the blame of not doing anything about it? what is the point if Japan can't even treat Taiwan as a country?

Posted in: Diverse doubts: How vaccine skepticism takes root See in context

lol, if an antivaxxer feel the need to write up 5 pages of excuses, conspiracies and personal attacks it must be because it is feeling threatened. Now people realize the disinformation they repeat endlessly is wrong, their numbers shrinking.

Posted in: Neurotoxins in the environment damaging human brain health See in context

Title of the article is obvious, if something is called a neurotoxin it means it damages the brain, and if it can be found in the environment then it will affect people (and other animals).

Japan is not going to get any understanding from the international community just because it has IAEA cooperation, so there is no real point in doing this.

Posted in: Japan to ease quarantine rule to 3 days for business travelers See in context

Lets see what happens in winter first, one of the very problematic things about Japan is that measures are most of the time delayed until they are useless or they can't be put in order

Posted in: Train attacker says he targeted Tokyo in hopes of increasing kill count See in context

I understand people want to know more about the incident, but getting famous is part of why the crazy guy did this, the less is published about him the best, focus on the victims and safety measures and not on the criminal.

Posted in: Election pledges on LGBT rights boost legislation hopes See in context

Not going to happen, it is just trying to get move votes without having to do anything at all. But it may work backwards here since young people are the most interested in lgbt rights, but also the ones that vote the less.

Posted in: Climate: Removing CO2 from the air no longer optional See in context

As usual this can change very importantly with development of new technology, betting on it is costly, because money and resources have to be spent in research that maybe end up in nothing, but if a new method comes up that can capture CO2 efficiently, then this option comes back to the table.

And then you have Japan that can't even call it a country, not really a friendly relationship if you can't even recognize your friend country is not just a part of his enemy.

Posted in: Why COVID boosters weren't tweaked to better match variants See in context

Reading experts can make you an expert? It might, after many years, proving it may be a problem, why don't you try asking for proof when someone try to push things or make predictions about what the future will be based only in their personal opinions?

Also, what does this have to do with the article?

Posted in: Chapelle special spurs Netflix walkout; 'Trans lives matter' See in context

Chapelle have every right to be offensive, and people that feel offended have every right to complain about it, Netflix is obviously allowed to keep the special if they think it is justified, but they will also assume the consequences of doing it, it may be losing staff, viewers, share in the market, etc. but then again it may not.

Posted in: Irish gymnast slams 'slippery' pommel horse after virus case at worlds See in context

So what is the complain? that measures had to be taken? or that they were badly done?

if she noticed the lack of chalk made the thing slippery why not asking for it to be applied?

Posted in: Vaccine mandates: Is no jab, no entry into restaurants, cafes, bars, sporting and event venues discrimination? See in context

How come the antivaxxer crowd is so active this week? you don't vaccinate, you can't do some things, in the same way that if you want to drink you can't drive, even if you think alcohol makes you drive better, waiting is fine you are just accepting to be treated as not vaccinated until you do (if you ever do).
