Wish I had won the contest. I don't care how low the price gets, I doubt I will ever be able to afford it.

Grew up with this show. Always loved it. Still watch some every now and then on YouTube.

I'd rather get jabbed. I don't like putting stuff up my nose. Kind of feels like drowning.

Posted in: An entire generation of Americans has no idea how easy air travel used to be See in context

And that is why I haven't traveled internationally for 15 years, and probably never will again. I'm not afraid of terrorists, COVID, or such. I'm afraid of the people who are afraid that are in charge.

Posted in: I find it hard to believe such a thing could happen in this day and age. See in context

Municipalities in my area issue "official" notes for citizens who have plates from other prefectures. My question is why don't you have to register your car where you are residing.

I might need to get one for the wife and me. It looks more and more like our kids aren't going to have any kids.

Posted in: Despite its reputation as a superfood, natto has failed to gain popularity outside of Japan. It has, however, attracted enough attention to end up in the Disgusting Food Museum in Malmö, Sweden. Have you tried natto? Do you like it? See in context

I've tried it. Several times. Disgusting every time. I'm finished with that stinky, smelly garbage. Edamame is great. Why rotten them? Talk about mottainai.

Posted in: Opposition candidate wins Yokohama mayor election in blow to Suga See in context

Yokohama is the capital of Kanagawa Prefecture, the second-most populous city in the country after Tokyo and home to the constituency of Suga's seat in the House of Representatives.

Wouldn't it be nice to see Suga not only lose the LDP presidency (thus being Prime Minister), but also his seat in the Diet?

Posted in: Why refusing the COVID-19 vaccine isn't just immoral – it's 'un-American' See in context

I don't understand the meaning some people assign to the word "selfish." Being selfish is not doing something for yourself. It is asking others to do something for you. In this sense, it is selfish to push something like a vaccine on to others for your own benefit.

That being said, I, too, am totally pro science and vaccines. I get my second shot this Saturday. Can't wait for it.

Posted in: What are your feelings about the upcoming Paralympics which begin on Aug 24? See in context

That they should be cancelled. Just like the Olympics should have been cancelled.

Posted in: Sapporo man arrested for kidnapping 14-year-old girl he met on social media See in context

Anyone thinking the girl is at fault at ANY level in this case needs to reexamine their own sense of morality. 

That would be the Japanese government that has set the age of consent at 13, with no plans to change it, at least in the near future. I don't remember if the article concerning age of consent I read was here on Japan Today or on another site, but it was sometime last week. The difference in age is what might get him.

Posted in: Sapporo hopes Tokyo Games success will boost 2030 Winter Olympic bid See in context

You have got to be joking. After all the crap the IOC put Japan through, why would anyone in Japan ever want to host another Olympics?

Then again, this is the same country that will most likely vote in the LDP again this fall. Japan, please learn from your mistakes.

Oh, wait. I looked it up and it appears it has been approved. Must have missed the news.

Why is the AstraZeneca Plc vaccine made domestically under license, but not approved for use in Japan?

Posted in: Did you watch any of the first week of the Tokyo Olympics on TV? If so, did you find that it helped take your mind off the coronavirus? See in context

I'll just say no and echo all those above who have the sense to not waste their time on such trivial matters.

There is no one I wanted to see lose more than this guy. I am absolutely ecstatic that he lost. All the Olympics, but especially these, should be canceled forever and for always. Or at least made 100% paid for by the silly participants. Absolutely NO tax money.

2,848 new daily virus cases

Expect those numbers to keep going up, especially in the next week or two as these Pandemic Games continue.

I am proud to say I haven't watched a second of this farce. I just keep on flipping channels or turn on a DVD.

Posted in: Do you think there should be permanent host cities for both the summer and winter Olympics? See in context

I voted no because I don't think there should be any more Olympics. Yes, it is extreme, but I just don't care about sports.

Posted in: New Mexico is 2nd state to make gas stations liable for DUI See in context

It's that last paragraph in the article. I was thinking the same thing from the beginning. I haven't had anyone pump my gas for me, nor have I paid for gas to a person, in years. Unless you put breathalyzers at the pumps so that they can't be used if there are indications of being intoxicated, I don't see how gas stations could be seen as liable.

Posted in: Djokovic says he will play at Tokyo Olympics See in context

He might not be concerned about me personally, but all those silly athletes should be concerned about how much they are looked down upon by the vast majority of the Japanese people who don't want them here. Of course, you are right. They don't care anything about the Japanese people, either. If they did, they wouldn't come. Good show from Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Dominic Thiem and Angelique Kerber.
