So a plane clips wings with another plane and they need to investigate if it's a manufacturing fault? What a silly conclusion

I'm in Europe at the moment, inflation has hit the average Joe very hard but people still spend more than a measly 45.000 yen. Prices have gone up by 100 percent or some products even by 200 percent compared to 4 years ago. You live only once mentality makes people spend

What I'm getting at is that they need to live in the largest houses, with pools, drive the largest cars and must have the highest salaries. Look at the American policies, force countries to cater them or they'll be boycotted or isolated. The Americans need to keep benefitting, no matter what.

Yup, the biggest consumers in the world. It might be a good idea to slow down for a while, better for the wallet and better for the environment. Why do they think they are the only ones who deserve to have a good life?

Welcome to the new world where you have different views you get canceled, fired, muted or down voted. Free speech, if we agree or not with the person, doesn't exist anymore. Better to keep your political, social, sexual or environmental ideas/ opinions to yourself.

It's ridiculous to expect people to walk around with trash in their hands. Shops and cities should provide trashcans, you like the visitors keep coming and spend their dough? Provide basic sanitary services. Having said that, stations and major shopping streets should have them too

The utter insanity of some countries, with Dubai on top. We are being told to consume less and not to travel on the name of global warming and preserving the environment and nobody blinks an eye when businesses and countries waste resources

Thank you! I've offloaded about 70 percent of my stocks in the past 2 days. Going short now as a crash is imminent. Debt ceiling will be resolved but with big cuts in spending and we are going to enter a recession. Some European countries already have shrunk in the last quarter.and with sky high inflation we'll have a nice recession with stocks retreating 20 percent or more this year

When politicians overpromise and underdeliver it's bound to happen again and again. I'm not saying what happened is a good thing but maybe the politicians should be more careful of what they say and if the things they promise have a chance of execution. Their implementations have an impact on real people's lives so if they don't deliver on their promises they upset some people and some nutshells might opt for an attack on their life to show their frustrations

Don't know any legit massage parlors which are open after midnight. Wasn't it one of those hand job places that disguise as massage parlors?

It's not only hotels, ever tried to get a new phone subscription? Last time I got a new phone for my daughter, I refused and told them it's not mandatory as I pay with my credit card. I said it's discrimination right in their face and they called yahoo mobile to verify and confirmed it was not necessary. Lots of these establishments standard ask for id but if you point out there is no need they comply. Same with banks

Put people who bully others on a blacklist and share it with all internet and phone providers so they won't have internet anymore if their name is on the list. That will teach them. Simple solution. That endless talk about what can be done to prevent bullying should stop and real action needs to be taken. Same with schools and companies, kick the students and employees out so they get to feel the repercussions of their actions. Think about the victims, their feelings and state of mind should be priority

Last month they already increased the average bill by more than 10.000 yen and they want to increase again? And how can a 30+ percent increase only add 2800 yen to the average bill? My calculation is that the average bill will go up by another 12000 yen or so. So an average house will see around 50.000 monthly bills which will be a roughly 100 percent increase compared to last year. Think some people cannot do some simple math. Oh by the way, spot gas prices have declined by almost 70 percent so why do they try to fool us by saying that has is expensive. Bunch of thieves

And how much suffering has he exactly created in his one year of presidency prior to the war Mr Mori? Know what you are talking about before you open your mouth. You're 85 years old, soon be biting the dust, have some manners, dignity, respect and refrain from giving your opinion on every subject.
You and your opinions aren't relevant anymore

Yup, that's the way to serenade a woman, Romeo. Never occured to you that it could creep the hell out of someone by randomly calling them and asking them "do you know who I am" etc?

Yes, great plan. Let's all share our banking details, insurances, driver's license, taxes, employment, passport details and much more under one umbrella. At the same time, let's also encourage the people to share the same number with commercial companies so they can discount coupons or some points. What could go wrong here?
One you do that you basically encourage all cyber criminals to hack into the system because one number gives you access to a person's life. And we all know how good Japan is at cyber security

I think the Japanese don't watch the news. We're in a recession, air tickets are through the roof and people can't pay their gas/electricity/food bills. Are they really expecting millions of tourists the line up to come to Japan?

It's so refreshing to read the other side of Abe, and kudos for this journalist to have the courage to speak up and tell the public as it is. Wish he had said it earlier and more often when he was in power.

All this does is inflate the prices of accomodation, hotels and inns will double their prices because the government will foot the bill. So if we get 11.000 yen per person per day, our stay should be free, because how many hotels charge 40.000 yen per night?

115 yen to the dollar will ease a lot of the pain for the average Taro. It doesn't look like the BOJ will/can increase the rate without hurting the people who took out loans/mortgages

This is my experience with J-cops, believe it or not, it's entirely up to you.
Something happened at our place about 9 years ago. My wife called the cops and when they arrived they were more interested in me and my occupation, residence card etc instead of taking my wife's statement. After about 10 minutes I got so pissed of that I kicked them out of my house. After a follow up a couple of weeks later at the local police station to see what they had done with our report, they couldn't find anything in their system. So the cops basically didn't write any documentation about ever visiting us and our experience. Lost my trust in the system right there and then

Kinda strange, how far can a 2 year old kid go in a few minutes at 6.45 when it starts getting dark at that time. A short sprint around the house would easily make you catch up with a toddler as he's probably afraid to wander off too far in the dark

Any surprised there on not delivering his promises? The late Abe hadn't delivered on his 3 arrows after 9 years so why do people think Kishida is any different?

You cannot fine a person or institution for not breaking any rules. There is nothing illegal about screaming, yelling, shouting or cheering neither about not wearing a mask. These mandates were only requests or urges but nothing illegal. So good luck collecting that money

In other words, we don't know what else to do and don't want to be responsible for introducing another state of emergency and sink the economy. At least we can blame each prefecture if their ideas don't pan out

It's amazing to see so many people who are supposed to be educated, sensible and work for the people to make the nation a better place for its citizens having ties to a cult group. It actually scares the sh#t out of me. How are we supposed to trust their decision making it they don't have the common sense to stay miles away from such groups
