We are all same under the skin.

I'm sure some religious extremists purposely twisted the teaching of the founder.

Good to know some JP companies are still thriving in the scientific field. Maintaining imagination is critical to surviving in the international market.

No offense to both the royal family and H&M.

For me, the system of having the royal institutions with our tax money is becoming nonsense.

Shameful behavior. I used to think they had at least drawn a line not to cause such a brawl in public.

For me, good religion gives hope to people and not discriminates against others or ask for donations.

Posted in: Nintendo praised for new rules against customers who harass staff See in context

The ”Customers are always right” policy drives employees to go mentally depleted.

On the other hand, some service providers should make their service much more simple to prevent unnecessary inquiries, such as mobile phone companies.

I often found myself cutting unnecessary option deals and ending up inquiring them how I could cancel them.

Like cancer, it spreads gradually but could be too late and wait for the end of life by the time it's completely visible right next to us.

I'm really sorry to hear that Andy is going through such a hardship.

Duran x2 is one of the most amazing UK bands.

Posted in: Japan to keep stake in Russian energy project in Sakhalin See in context

I believe Russia tries to take all the benefits away after the development is sufficiently done.

They cannot be trusted.

I personally don't see any problem if kids recognize other genders differently as long as there is a respect for the difference.

Speaking of the health insurance card, I heard many wrongdoers falsify it as their illegal ID because of no picture.

Posted in: Yahoo! Japan won’t let anyone post comments without providing a phone number See in context

Personally, I disagree with imposing a censorship-like system to disrupt our freedom of speech.

Having said that, because I also often see purely hostile comments there, to an extent, this system might work in democratic states.

This is so inspiring amid so many war scaremongers insisting to adopt fossil fuels or nuclear power as opposed to green energy.

Posted in: 170 cats abandoned in house in Gunma after owner falls ill See in context

If he couldn't provide proper care at home, the home should have been open for the poor cats. I just hope his wrong way to love and obsession with cats never happens again.

Posted in: Japanese mom’s don’t-touch-my-baby-stroller sign stirs up debate See in context

Maybe I wouldn't mind elderly people kindly talking and even touching my baby with care as long as I'm not in hurry, because in Japan, I don't have to worry about kidnapping, however, I agree with her opinion COVID-wise.

If the decrease of their population is a part of the evolutionary stages, probably it is OK, but this sort of rapid environmental change always impacts the entire ecosystem after all.

Speaking of loopholes, why tax authorities aren't enthusiastic about imposing a decent corporate tax on online retail behemoths?

Japan could improve its well-being and its rank in the Global Gender Gap Index if those decision-makers try to show more compassion and are more inclusive.

Maybe Pu cannot put his fist down because it's too embarrassing to admit that his hypothetical enemy poetry didn't work.

What a surprise for Snowden to be finally granted Russian citizenship - it's so obvious... he should've read Animal Farm.

Given the circumstance that the main culprit was plump, she should receive the same experience the boy was being through to truly repent her crime.

Posted in: Gov't to pursue U.S. base relocation in Okinawa despite Tamaki's win See in context

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine and some countries' willingness to have a good rapport with Russia, it demonstrates invasions can happen anywhere when we are off guard.

If I were Prime Minister of Japan, I would certainly have no choice but to keep the US base in one of the best defensive locations, which is Okinawa to deter China's invasion of Taiwan, to begin with, then Japan.

Of course, the US is not perfect, they obviously want to keep their influence, but much more reliable than China, Russia, and their allies if I have to choose.

Although some argue that those offenders typically suffer from mental illness or substance-abuse disorders, consequences always turn out to be so unfair to victims and their families.

Not care so much about wrinkles but definitely interested in staying fit until die.

With rather a sedentary lifestyle, 30 mins daily dumbbell exercise and stretching are secured but feel like it's just a drop in a bucket after reading this article...

Hopefully, Brazil won't follow inhumane nations' shady attitude on this.

This guy should come under a proper interrogation no matter where he is.

Posted in: As Japanese manufacturing fades, a factory town fights to stay alive See in context

I think some of the small-mid business owners rather want to end their business peacefully if they can afford to close it without debts because they know more investment is required to even just keep going.

On the contrary, those who want to hang in tight need not only financial support but also feasible future planning with reliable data to decide which pass to go, shift, or quit. I wonder if they have access to that kind of support...

Nothing against helping friends when they have a hard time, but added to the financial aid to Africa, hopefully, it wasn't ordered from Japan's bigger ally.

Posted in: Robot issue delays fuel removal from Fukushima nuclear plant See in context

The total of running nuclear power plants including decommissioning cost easily outweighs the development of other renewable energy sources in a long run, but we always come back to using nuclear power for some reason.
