I'm 68 and just learned today that my application for a jab has been rejected because I don't have a membership card at my local hospital and because there are too many applicants on the list ahead of me. The EARLIEST I can apply again is July.

God cannot sink this ship. Sounds like a challenge, doesn't it?

This is not a problem restricted to Japan and I'm tired of reading posts from those who insist that it is.

If it turns out to be the result of a tornado, how often do tornadoes happen in Japan?

Welcome to global warming/climate change.
Really? How do you then explain milenia of bad weather?

I've been following his career with the Angels and am glad he's finally coming into his own. He's a superstar.

You gotta love the fact that teachers drinking in class is "frowned upon."

Name a better solution. Or, downvote it and move along like usual.

Scandals come and go in Japan but this one should be prosecuted.

In the absence of clear information, the human mind tries to make sense of what we encounter. IMO, those who want to assist would-be suicide victims are offering their "help" for some selfish reason. I suspect sex is what they're after.

Japan’s record on safety is rapidly being eroded due to the financial pain felt by the less fortunate
Nah, the internet just makes it possible for us to read what's been happening all along. Japan is still the safest country I know of.

Poor girl, poor man, poor family -- I keep saying it, but I wish there was more support & outreach for mentally suffering people in this country before tragedies like this happen. Calling someone a monster afterward is easy -- but working to prevent incidents like this in the future is a tough challenge.

"Even if people say we don't need to worry about a tsunami, I won't buy it," said a 50-year-old male worker. "I learned from my bitter experience 10 years ago and that's why I evacuated."

It's a beautiful country, with a lot of charm. Don't let tabloid media tell you what to think.
I don't doubt that. Ghosn circus aside, Lebanon has really tried to be neutral over the years. They were the only ME country to form a coalition government.

Growing swell of support by Congress for Trump to be impeached and removed from office immediately.
I worry about pardons yet to come. Your suggestion prevents that from happening.

"I deeply regret attending the drinking party and apologize to people,"
When will these fake apologies be recognized and addressed for what they are?

I'm bewildered about the very slow rollout of the vaccine in Japan.

Always be on guard. Nutcases everywhere in japan like this lunatic. And they’re on the loose, no one to keep watch of them or keep them indoors.
This phenomena isn't limited to Japan. Take the USA, where mental health facilities released patients (in the mid-1970's) to community group homes until their funds, too, dried up. Now these patients live on the streets
