So many bitter jealous people in the comments. What happened to aspiring to other people, this generation is all about dragging people down to their low level, very sad.

Disgusting, cruel, child killing Japanese mother. 3 years?, Should be life without parole.

Posted in: Microsoft shutting down LinkedIn app in China amid scrutiny See in context

LinkedIn went down the drain the same way Facebook did, left wing posters injecting politics into their posts. It's supposed to be a professional work network site yet all over it are lefties putting up politics, they can't help themselves. It's a shame but I'm with China on this one.

Posted in: Main opposition party pledges to achieve growth by reducing inequality, poverty See in context

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that about $90,000, and therefore includes the vast majority of the working population?

Correct, I think something like 10% of people in Japan earn above 10 million. So he's saying 90% of people will not pay any income tax.

All Japanese cast, me smells some cultural appropriation here! Hogwarts is in Scotland. Come on comrades, let's band together and cancel this terrible play, Twitter he we come, are you with me?. Anybody?.... Deftly silence, guess that's a one way street.

Posted in: Average gasoline price in Japan rises to 7-year high See in context

Started travelling to work by bicycle pre-covid about 4 years ago. Never looked back. Exercise, free ( bike cost 40,000yen which paid for itself in less than a year) and faster than commuting with the salary zombies to shibuya then changing to shinagawa). I recommend everyone to ditch the gas guzzling cars and busses and cycle.

Posted in: KFC Japan suspends French fry sales after running out of potatoes See in context

Welcome to the global supply-chain crunch. These bottlenecks are taking place in plenty of countries, except if somethings happen in the UK, then all the non-conservatives tell us it's Brexit's fault.

Yes, I'm still waiting for the plague of locusts and the sky to fall in. Anyday now all due to Brexit.

Posted in: Japan opposition pledges to tax the rich in election platform See in context

effectively exempt people who earn less than around 10 million yen annually from paying income tax, 

Wow, that's a bold idea, who will pick up the slack. Companies? Who then in turn further slash bonusses to pay for this.

Posted in: U.S. Open champ Raducanu loses in 2 sets at Indian Wells See in context

Both were very young with grand slam victories. Both are biracial and are marketed as such.

Raducanu is British, her parents are from different countries. No idea who is 'marketing' her. She has grown up in Britain in school with all of her friends exactly the same. Only racist people say she is not British and focus on her parents nationality.

Osaka is different, she is American but represents Japan due to her own Career gains. Doesn't speak Japanese, doesn't care about mixed race people issues in Japan. I fail to see any similarity.

They have offered years of service already, 

Did they do that for free or were they paid for their services?.

Posted in: 53 Afghan evacuees arrive in Japan See in context

The thing is, as far as Japan is concerned neither you nor I, in fact probably most of the posters here, have any real 'reason' to come to Japan. We just wanted to, and we did.

No, I had a demonstrable skill set that could not be found in Japan, so I had a benefit for Japan. What do these 50 guys offer Japan?

Nothing to be ashamed about losing. Unless of course she starts pulling the victim card / race card / mental health card like a certain 'Japanese' female tennis primadonna.

Posted in: Elon Musk says Tesla will move HQ from California to Texas See in context

I guess musk stepped in one too many human poos, or maybe junkie needles. Great move, it's a trend of companies fleeing these liberal cities in droves.

@cleo

What visa did you get granted, what job were you given permission do do in Japan?.

I had 2 degrees and 10 years of experience and a sponsored job in Japan and it still took me 6 months to get the visa. That made me confident I was moving to a country that were strict about who they let in, only those who proved a benefit to this country and a skill that could not be found internally.

Equality of opportunity not equality of outcome. These ladies were given a chance, gender equality was achieved but on the day the best man won.

Every other Bond film up until Casino Royale was just plain trash and mysogynistic as you can get.

I don't remember Bond hating women, in fact the opposite, seemed very keen on the ladies.

What's 'black cinema', I've never heard of 'white cinema', seems a very outdated concept in the age of 'diversity and representation'.

Very sad to see. My favourite film director is from HK, Kar Wei Wong. It's one of the reasons I visited HK a few years ago, glad I did now as I probably would not go now.

I wonder if she regrets that brief stint promoting BLM Marxist ideologies ahead of focussing on her tennis. Seems to have been all down hill for her since.
