Posted in: Naomi Osaka called racist after posting meme in response to COVID-19 cases See in context

Naomi is apparently unaware that BLM is a Marxist organization that is involved in money laundering and has done a lot of damage to the U.S., which I notice she has spent most of her life and currently resides in despite making the huge mistake of renouncing her citizenship in order to represent Japan in the Olympics.

And aims for the "abolition of capitalism"

Wonder how she and the footballers taking the knee would fare after that!

'Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except the endless present in which the Party is always right'

Posted in: Britain starts mandatory self-quarantine for arrivals See in context

Right. Read the article, it says those exempt are lorry drivers, "essential" healthcare workers and people travelling from Ireland who have been there for at least two weeks.

*It says those exempt include lorry drivers......*

Posted in: Do you think the Japanese government lifted its state of emergency for the whole country too soon? See in context

Every expert in the world had said the same thing: There will be a second and even a third wave.

Not true. There are second wave sceptics.

Wouldn't the second wave already be under way in China?

There was no second wave of SARS.

Clusters are more likely. This new virus occurs more in clusters than the others. A second wave occuring will likely be due to ineffective measures at the local / provincial level.

Posted in: Shonan beaches to be without huts, life guards for summer See in context

Let's see... a nation where in summer you have a daily report of water-related deaths every single one preventable), reports of what may be a record hot summer (and with people insisting on masks, record high heatstroke deaths), the first wave of a pandemic not passed in a nation that doesn't test, and mere lip-service social distancing, and now they want to remove life-guards to boot. Nah, I don't see any potential problems at all, but we will get a lot of "Who could have known?" excuses.

Ever thought of joining an end times cult?

Posted in: Trump threatens social media after Twitter fact-checks him See in context

The whole Twitter fact check thing fell apart as soon as the personal tweets of their main "fact checker" (Head of Integrity) were published and shown to be non factual and having liberal bias.

A bit like the BBC's reality check, which simply tries to align the readers reality to that of a liberal.

Posted in: Craft beer gets turned into gin See in context

While there are some genuine craft beer makers, unlike real ale, most of the so called "craft" beer is semi mass produced, fizzy, overly hoppy dross. I'm surprised it doesn't last for years such is the hop content. The Americans define a craft brewer as one that produces less than six million barrels of beer a year, so it is often, hardly some small, heartfelt operation. The only craft involved is thinking up a macho or humorous name. It's largely a marketing scam for hipsters and beer bores, paying over the odds in often characterless establishments.
