Posted in: Court finds COVID restrictions for Tokyo restaurant chain illegal See in context

Good, I hope the people that lost their businesses are well compensated. The fact that commuting, work and school were never stopped proves the Jgov was just picking and choosing what scientific 'facts' they felt like following. 10 hours a day in an office building, or an hour at a pub on a friday night, which was more 'dangerous'?

Wow, shifting the blame! Very cowardly thing for a leader to do, especially wen his people are so poor so he can be rich.

@noriahojanen

I'm sure the mayor's cousin's legal firm has been working around the clock on this case and deserves every bit of the 5 million yen they've quoted.

@Tom Doley

Animals absolutely abandon their young all the time. Humans have resources and, one would hope, the mental capacity to realise how cruel and evil this is though.

They are gonna rake this guy over the coals when, I'd guess, at least 75% of covid relief funds ended up in the bank accounts of people that didn't need it. The giant concrete squid is a perfect example. Some politician's cousin's concrete business cleaned up there.

He's 24, living in a rural area, he likely would never see that amount of cash at one time in his account EVER. They are absolutely trying to ruin his life by adding on those legal fees, that alone would take years to pay off. Not saying what he did was right, but I understand.

Technology should be making our lives easier and giving us more free time. Instead it is just making jobs harder to find, forcing people to move to cities to work, and forcing them to accept terrible jobs that haven't been automated yet.

This is going to destroy the mother. 3 years of hope and fear building up. I really hope she has a great support circle.

LMAO @ all the cool jealous boomers saying "who?"

He's literally one of the most famous people on earth. You are just showing how out of touch you are. He's gonna have absolutely no problem living in Japan, he'll basically get to experience the absolute best of what Japan has to offer infinitely.

I'm not a fan, I've seen exactly one of his videos about 5 years ago and it made me cringe. But his success is undeiniable. He's gonna be fine.

The options seem to be, join NATO and have some sense of security, or don't join NATO and just hope Russia or whoever leave you alone.

"If Komuro were still a bachelor, he could work things out even without financial issues, and keep taking the bar exam until he passes it," remarked cartoonist Mayumi Kurata, who has been observing the couple's activities since they first announced their engagement. "But now he's got a wife to support.

She's a princess and they can already apparently afford a $5000 a month apartment. When is it EVER enough?

Posted in: Do you think political correctness will be the death of comedy? See in context

We've seen comedians like Louie CK bounce back from cancellation, and Dave Chapelle continues to say what he likes, these guys are too big to cancel. But, if you aren't a millionaire comedian you probably aren't going to risk all the twitter psychos hunting down your job and family to ruin you life for the sake of a few risque jokes in a nightclub.

Posted in: It is important to pass on a sustainable social security system to future generations, and supporting child-rearing and youth generations is a pressing issue. See in context

Inaka towns are dying fast, young people are moving to big cities to live in apartments too small for even a couple, let alone a small family, all for a salary that is no higher than what I made as a teenager working at Micky Ds in Australia. If these old Boomers have finished funneling every yen they can into their pockets and ruining the country she should gtfo and let the healing begin.

Posted in: What's your stance on abortion? See in context

Humans should have total control over their body, no exceptions, that means abortions, drugs, operations and ending their own lives peacefully. Anything else is just being cruel for the sake of it, which of course is nothing new.

Posted in: Who left the tap on? Teacher in hot water for pool bill See in context

Ok I'm really gonna show how bad I am at maths here, but the article said the bill was for 3.5million yen and he used enough water to fill the pool 11 times.

Does that mean it costs roughly 300000 yen to fill a pool? If so that's nuts, never thought about that.

Posted in: We are reaching our limits both mentally and financially. I believe that a boom in visiting Japan will definitely come after the pandemic. I'm worried that guides who can handle that situation will be in short supply. See in context

@zichi

Me included, can't wait for my family and friends to visit Japan. I love Japan, I hope tourists come back strong and things can get going again. As much as I loathe my fellow Australians treating Hakuba and other ski places with absolutely no respect, they've been sorely missed by all the local businesses. I want to see them thriving again.

I really don't know what I'm talking about, but I feel like it's gonna be hard for Japan to bounce back. Everyone I've talked to can't wait to travel to places like Vietnam or Thailand where they can live like kings for a week or two. After two years of no travel, are people gonna want to spend their two weeks off on a beach in tropical paradise where they feel rich? Or spend their time calmly walking through temples and a few nights out in Tokyo?

Spare the public this menace and give him 7 to 10 in the slammer. Of course, if he has no strikes against his name maybe it was a one off. It's a shame when people throw their lives into the gutter like this.

Elon Musk is an enemy of anyone who likes freedom. He wants us all in his self driving cars, using his version of google maps, to restrict, log and curate the route of every trip we make.

I would never trust an app. The amount of times we see 'data breach' appearing in the news makes me way too nervous.

In my home country I use a credit card all the time because if it gets stolen or skimmed, it's the bank's money getting taken and the few times I've had a problem they are quick to reverse it.

I rarely use anything but cash in Japan. I can't imagine how mendokusai it would be to get a scam charge reversed, if it's at all possible.
