Posted in: Sushi chain reports diner who licked utensils in viral clip to police See in context

What an absolute loser. Not only is that disgusting, it was completely lame as well. I grew up watching the stunts and pranks of Jackass and The Dudesons, whose work required skill and creativity. The best this idiot can come up with is licking a cup. Tiktok and all social media is pure brainrot.

Posted in: Russia eyes eastern Ukraine push; Kyiv cracks down on corruption See in context

These incidences of corruption are going to make a lot of people stop caring about Ukraine. How evil can you be to steal from you own country while it's being invaded?

If they all quit then anyone that wants to take a train or hospital appointment is going to have a hard time.

Just finding another job is a terrible solution. What if that job sees pay cuts too? Keep job hopping until you find one that is immune to pay cuts and greedy bosses? The point is to make their current jobs better for the future. These are all essential jobs and should pay enough for people to live good lives.

Posted in: Kishida grilled in Diet over son's excursion during overseas trip See in context

This is blatant corruption. Kishida should me kicked out and made to apologise for this. If they are willing to do this sort of thing out in the open just imagine what they do in secret. I'd estimate of the 10% VAT tax we all pay on everything at least 8% of it would go straight into the pockets of lawmakers and their families and friends through various channels. Now they are talking about raising taxes, it's sad to know the potential of this country is being destroyed because of these vampires.

Picturing a beautiful 24 year old rose being traumatized for life by a 60 year old entitled boomer makes me want to vomit. I hope this guy gets a severe punishment, although it's unlikely.

I agree about the cheese and steak, but there's no shortage of good beer in Japan IMHO

The one in the alps near Shirouma Dake in Nagano. Also in Nagano, Maguse onsen which overlooks forests and mountains.

Grim future for Japan. What hope have young people got? They are being turned into whores and slaves for the rich ancient ones at the top. Eventually the only way a young person will be able to make a living is if an elite pays them enough for their services at a pink salon.

Last night a thought occurred to me. The elites running Japan into the ground and draining every bit they can because they know the big earthquake that is supposedly coming will decimate Japan. They don't care about destroying the futures of the young because they don't believe Japan has a future. After the earthquake they'll either leave Japan, or use their wealth to remain as kings while those still living here will live in slums and poverty.

How else can you explain the declining population crisis being met with one uncaring action after another.

These people probably felt they had it made working for these companies. It's scary having to put the security of our futures in the hands of uncaring CEOs.

Posted in: Justin Bieber sells music rights for $200 million See in context

Surprised they were his songs to sell. I wonder how much of the 200 million he'll see. Either way it must be easier for him to sell his songs since he didn't write them in the way Bob Dylan or Bruce Springsteen wrote theirs.

At this point salaries would need to be doubled and working hours would need to be halved to make a real difference, and that's just for a start.

Have to feel sorry for the people that have put 1000s of hours and yuan into this game only to have it all disappear. This should remind everyone to think twice before paying for digital online content, it can be taken away at any time and there's nothing you can do about it.

Posted in: Japan Inc finally giving raises, just not to everyone See in context


how many Japanese are reliant on wages? I bet no more than 20%

You've seen people spend more than they should at a bar so you assume that? That's ridiculous. I'd guess close to 99% of people all across the world rely on a salary to live. No one would work 40 hour weeks if they didn't have to.

Too bad the police weren't so tough with the ex boyfriend of the woman who was stabbed to death, in broad daylight, yesterday in Fukuoka. It's much easier for police to bully a young woman than deal with a violent man who might argue back.

What are you meant to do in her situation if you contact the police about repeated harassment and they do nothing? Seems like you have to wait for the harasser to lose interest or wait until he kills you.

Posted in: There are problems regarding how far companies can get involved in visualizing sleep data of an individual. Sleep technologies are effective as an investment for improving productivity. See in context

If they were serious about employee health we wouldn't have to work a minimum of eight hours a day. They are just trying to find ways to force more out of us. 4 day work weeks, 6 hour work days as start and I guarantee any employee would be sleeping well.

Posted in: What's a 'gig' job? How it's legally defined affects workers' rights and protections See in context

You're an absolute fool, and a tool of the satanic parasites that run these companies if you participate in the 'gig economy'. Being a taxi driver used to be a job where one could earn a decent living. You could jump in a taxi and ask them for recommendations about the town, the taxi driver was a professional that knew how to deal with different customers and knew the roads like the back of their hand. Thanks to uber a lot of these drivers are now out of business. How can you compete with IDIOTS willing to rack up thousands of kilometres on their own cars, pay for their own maintenance and require absolutely no training or support? Both drivers and customers are expected to constantly judge eachother for the rating system. The driver has no idea where they are going, relying totally on google maps and constantly updating their phone looking for the next customer. At the same time they are trying to engage you in a fake happy conversation so you'll give them five stars and possibly a tip. Even in Japan or Australia, where we don't tip, this option appears as normal. No uber, I'm paying for the ride, pay your drivers or close your company. At least in Japan there are still real taxi drivers. Taking a taxi in Japan is a pleasure. If I was rich I would travel to different towns and ask the taxi drivers to just drive me around for hours, telling me about the history of the town and the things they've seen. In Australia, outside of rural areas that uber has deemed NOT ECONOMICALLY VIABLE you will not find a taxi. Just clueless fools driving down the value of their cars.

Food delivery is just as bad. I had a housemate when I was younger who was a pizza delivery driver. Barely a friday or saturday night would go by when they wouldn't come home with leftover pizza. I remember Dad calling up a local pizza shop, placing an order, having a great chat with the guy, sometimes he'd throw extras in. That sense of community is gone. These apps have made the whole thing completely sterile now. Strangers show up to restaurants, standing around awkwardly waiting for someone to bring them bags of cold food. Most fast food places now have signs for these brainless fools so they know where to stand. The delivery guy should be joking around with the people making the food, being part of a team. Again, that little community has been destroyed.

The only 'gigs' we should be engaging in are seeing a band play live. These apps are making human interaction completely sterile and turning everyone into podpeople.

I honestly think Japan will never go back to wearing no masks. Come this March we will have our first batch of Junior High School and High School students who spent their entire three years masked. There are students who have never seen their classmate's faces or been to a whole school ceremony. They have spent three years being praised for hiding, staying home, keeping a quiet voice and avoiding their peers. Not too long ago any kid acting like this would be sent to a psychologist. I predict an even greater wave of isolated, lonely, eternally single and childless adults in the future.

If I want to relax and watch something I can always chuck on an episode of Seinfeld, Red Dwarf, The Young Ones or Married... with children. Any episode, it doesn't matter.

Posted in: Man arrested for assaulting drinking companion in Sapporo See in context

I can't imagine the guilt and shame upon waking up after an incident like this. This incident should prompt him to give up alcohol, but it probably won't.

I've completely cut off people who get violent when they are drunk. I feel they can't be trusted and can't control themselves, so there's no need to keep them in my life.

The 'no recollection' line is just what people say to police before they can talk to a lawyer. It's never a good idea to confess your crimes to the police, especially when you know what you did is unforgivable.

Posted in: McDonald's Japan to hike prices for third time in 10 months See in context

All these price increases, yet our wages aren't going up, so where is all the extra money going? McDonalds will be posting record profits this year, just like every other company. I walked past a McDonalds two days ago that proudly boasted their 950 yen per hour arubaito, sickening. It's easy to avoid McDonalds, but even raw meat is going up at supermarkets. It's all so depressing.
