“It was awful. Health and economic impacts were tragic,"

These people are living in a fantasy world, and are allowing this virus to thrive and morph, putting the entire world at risk of something bigger and more dangerous. Now, the virus affects younger people, and the reports of people being infected q second time are beginning to grow.

How old are these kids?!

the league will allow spectators to clap inside stadiums from Sept 7.

Seriously? That was a thing?

I hope that makes it into the coronavirus museums. Oh, and please include the music player’s masks they invented. These things must be documented in order to preserve the “we did our best, before saying shoganai” image.

mine also went straight to savings. if your job hasn’t been affected and you don’t live a debt ridden life, I don’t see what’s so unbelievable about being able to save an extra chunk of cash.

the head of a household receives the total amount of the cash handouts for family members transferred to his or her bank account.

i don’t think this is the best system. I realize it simplifies the process for the government, but I’m sure some people in need can’t access they’re money depending on their relationship with the “head in the household”.

I’d really like to hear the thoughts of the one who gave a thumbs down to my comment.

Because ancient microbes are in fact frozen in time in there.

Or is it just that JT infection of someone always having to disagree?

Posted in: Mask-wearing during labor to prevent infection stirs debate See in context

HOLY MOLY!!! Who makes these rules! Obviously not anyone who’s given birth recently, especially in japan where natural, no pain killing birth is the norm.

I gave birth 18 months ago, and unlike what most moms say, oh! I DID NOT forget the pain.

I think I would have died if I wore a mask.

If they are worried about false negatives, test 3 times. Heck, test 30 times. Anyone would be happier with that than with wearing a mask during LABOUR!!!

What’s next? Marathon runners and gymnasts wearing masks at the Olympics?

Posted in: Plastic bag usage at Japanese stores down by 50%, but plastic bags sales through the roof See in context

I get so frustrated when I’m line at the bakery. Someone buys 10 buns. They wrap each of them in a plastic bag which they meticulously close with plastic tape. Then in a box (also closed with tape. And lined with parchment paper no doubt), then all placed in a large plastic bag. Oh, which is closed with, you guessed it, plastic tape.

The bakery is definitely at fault for continuing to offer this ridiculous “service”, but more so I judge the customer just standing there like a blind ghost

i haven’t read all the comments, so perhaps it’s already been suggested, but we have 2 large tuppers to collect all the garbage scraps. They may still smell in the summer, but I sprinkle a bit of baking soda on top and it lightens the skunk when I need to open it. Then I dump them all into the garbage just as I’m about to throw it out.

I hate wasting plastic bags, and I don’t like to handle little iffy bags of leaking fish guts either. The tuppers are just a million times better.

If you’re more of a go big or go home type of person, you can make a worm bin too. We have one and it eats about 1/2 our scraps, but I realize this wouldn’t be the most popular idea for various reasons

it may seem like there are so many accidents involving trucks, but they spend so much time on the road, you just can’t compare with your single skill of driving a car.

i presume you have travelled all over the world and studied truck drivers and accident statistics?
