Posted in: Beijing police name pianist Li Yundi in prostitution case See in context

Why would the police post a photo of a piano like it's a fun clue in a puzzle or something? This definitely sounds like they are trying to bring this piano player down for whatever reason. Can't believe or trust anything that comes out of China.

I don't get how blanks work. Is there any reason they can't just use a cap like in a starter gun? I'm sure they adjust the audio later anyway.

RIP to Ms Hutchins, and I wish the cast and crew well in dealing with this horrible tragedy.

Posted in: Tokyo, Osaka to lift nightlife curbs from Monday as virus cases plunge See in context

@Blacklabel

Yep, it's gonna be hell. It's been nice visiting ski fields, temples etc. with no (drunk, loud, rude, in the way) tourists. Of course I can't wait until people, me included, can travel everywhere with minimal hurdles, but it has been a little bit nice.

Next weekend is going to go off. Everyone that is vaccinated should still take care, I'm gonna continue wearing a mask, but I'm looking forward to seeing some bands and enjoying some nomihoudais. Can't wait for the staff nomikais too, I'm lucky that my coworkers are great people.

Posted in: 2 bus company execs go on trial over 2016 fatal crash in Nagano See in context

Note also that the bus was only on that twisty downhill road because it had left its original route on the expressway. This is because it was ahead of schedule, and was not allowed to arrive early at the ski resort where it was headed.

Is that for real? That is so dumb, but I believe it.

It's called 'tweeting' when you post something on twitter, what will they call it when you post something on TrumpBook?

It should be called a bleat, the sound a sheep makes.

Sign me up! This is going to be absolutely hilarious and engrossing in the same way reading the diary of someone's decent into madness would be.

You own a bar and you aren't vaccinated?

Wasting more resources their people desperately need. They should stick to making those martial arts videos where they break soft tiles with flashy moves.

Posted in: Vaccines, masks? Japan puzzling over sudden virus success See in context

I reckon its the vaccines and the fact it's a pain in the neck to get a test here, so people with mild symptoms simply aren't bothering and just getting on with their lives. Depending on how this plays out, hopefully it means we are almost at the stage where it's safe to simply live with COVID and we can move on.

Posted in: Some U.S. Capitol riot defendants forgo lawyers See in context

It must be amazing living with this much confidence. These people think they are smarter than doctors, disease experts and now lawyers. Too much TV, reality will be harsh.

It seems extremely weird to see a Prime Minister talking about building a casino.

I'm Australian but I felt the same about the ski fields here last winter, looking forward to it again soon.

Apart from how disgusting this crime is, what a way to ruin any image or legacy you might've left behind right at the end of your life.

So sick of seeing 'quarantine' attached to all these 'opening up' articles. But things are moving in the right direction.

@Blacklabel

Why would you want to be taken care of by a nurse or doctor that doesn't believe in science? Like taking your car to get fixed at a dry cleaner.

People need to be taught that standing up to and retaliating against bullies is ok, even encouraged.

Antivaxxers: have you seen the pictures and videos of people in ICU units with tubes and wires going in and out of them? Have you researched 'air hunger'? It sounds like hell with no relief. Why would you want to risk all of that just?

In my area Donki is the cheapest place to buy 1kg bags of shredded cheese, plus it's on my way home from work. Apart from that I try to avoid it, it's almost as loud as a pachinko parlour.

Posted in: Fire-caused power outage hits trains in Tokyo area; 236,000 affected See in context

Don’t Japanese rail companies put on emergency buses or provide taxis for ticket holders in these situations as the train companies do in the UK?

Must be impossible in Tokyo, but my train was cancelled due to rain in a small inaka town. They put me in a taxi that dropped me off at my house. They dropped a few other people off too, the meter read 15000 yen by the time I got out. Must've stung considering it was a 300 yen train ride.
