Why is a Shinto mikoshi being carried to a Buddhist temple? I know that Asakusa Shrine is right next door to Senso-ji Temple, but someone seems to be mixing up their religions. Good thing I'm atheist and don't have to worry about such superstitious rituals.

Posted in: Kishida's cabinet support rate edges up to 24.2%: poll See in context

After the political funds scandal was revealed late last year, the support rate for Kishida's cabinet, launched in October 2021, dropped below what is widely recognized as the "danger level" of 30 percent and hit an all-time low in March at 20.1 percent.

So I take it this means that the new "danger level" is 20%, since he doesn't seem to feel in any danger. How low can you go?

Sounds like they want to prevent people from knowing that the lawmakers are still going to be taking kickbacks without letting the public know. This in response to the LDP using slush funds.

Posted in: Hamas says Gaza ceasefire efforts are back at square one See in context

I hate to repeat what others have already written, but since some of you don't seem to get it, I have no choice.

The terrorist attack by the terrorist group known as Hamas is what instigated this war. Israel was singing and dancing and having a good time when the terrorist attack by the terrorist group known as Hamas came down, killing over a thousand innocent people, raping numerous women, incinerating babies in ovens, and doing all sorts of other horrible things. Just because Hamas is full of hatred.

That is how it started. But then Hamas took it further. Instead of quietly giving up the hostages, laying down their arms, and making a complete surrender they decided to turn Gaza into a hell hole by using their own people as human shields, using hospitals as military bases, and leaving innocent people to fend for themselves. They consistently attack any aid trucks or convoys that somehow get through, and keep everything for themselves.

Hamas is one of the worst terrorist organizations on Earth right now. Israel has no choice but to obliterate them. If innocents are harmed, it's because Hamas cowardly put them in harms way.

Israel will win this fight no matter how hard Biden, other congressional idiots, and stupid university protesters try to stop them.

All that being said, once again, Hamas has the power to end this war by simply giving up the remaining hostages, laying down their arms, and making a complete unconditional surrender.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to hold my breath. Hamas is full of hate for Israel, Jews in general, and freedom.

I remember Denpa Shonen from back in the day. It was my favorite show. Hiroiki Ariyoshi got his start on the same show when he and Kazunari Moriwake, known as SARUGANSEKI, hitchhiked from Hong Kong to London. I was so disappointed when the show was canceled.

It's all up to Hamas. Return all hostages and completely surrender. Then there will be a ceasefire. It's all up to the terrorists. If the terrorists don't surrender, Israel will make them surrender.

Posted in: First foreign-born sumo grand champion Akebono dies at 54 See in context

I would argue that Akebono was the best of that era. Sure Takanohana had more yushos, but Akebono had to go against all of them. Takanohana, Wakanohana, Takanonami, and others from the Futagoyama-beya didn't have to compete against each other, which gave them a distinct advantage. Akebono and Musashimaru wrestled all of them, as well as each other. I got to meet Akebono a long time ago. There's a picture of me with him somewhere. If it weren't for Akebono, Musashimaru, and Konishiki, I would have never gotten into sumo as much as I have. The era may have passed, but the memories remain. RIP.

Posted in: Hamas says Israeli proposal fails to meet Palestinian demands, but is under review See in context

Israel's immediate aim is to secure the release of hostages seized by Hamas in the Oct. 7 cross-border rampage that triggered the conflict. It says it will not end the war until it annihilates Hamas, which has run Gaza since 2007.

Sounds about right. All Hamas has to do is return all hostages and completely surrender. Hamas started this mess. They can end it. If they don't, Israel will.

The only talks should be about when the terrorist Hamas returns all hostages and completely surrenders. Until then, Hamas will be the sole target. If Hamas puts innocent Palestinians in harms way, that's on them.

So Biden is finally asking someone else to let Hamas know that they are the instigators and should give up the hostages and totally surrender? That's the only way this war will end. Aggressors are going to aggress.

Posted in: Adult siblings fall out over infirm or deceased parents: Who nurses them? Who inherits the property? See in context

I am living here in Japan while my youngest sister and her family are taking care of my mother in the U.S., who thankfully, can still pretty much get by on her own, but who knows when things will turn south? I've already made the decision that I'm not going to ask for anything or contest a will or do anything to break up whatever relations I have with my family. If it were up to me, my sister would get everything since she's the one who has been doing all the work. Even if I am left something (not likely since there isn't that much to begin with), I would probably just give it to that sister. She certainly deserves it. As long as I can keep my relationship with her and my other two sisters, I'm good.
