Posted in: If you could get tested for the coronavirus, would you? See in context

Depends on how much it costs and who pays for it. I don't have anything against getting tested per se, but since I am relatively healthy and live in Iwate (the only prefecture with ZERO cases), I don't want to have to pay a lot of money for it. And why isn't preventive medicine such as vaccines and tests not covered under health insurance? It seems to me that an ounce of prevention would cost less than a pound of cure.

You are the type of person letting this happen, you are putting us all at risk. If you aren't going to wear one, stay home.

No. If you are sick you should stay home. If you are at risk, you should stay home. If you are scared, you should stay home. I am not the type of person letting this happen. Those who are scaremongering are letting this happen. If you are sick, at risk, scared, etc., stay home. Let the rest of us breathe the fresh air without getting heat exhaustion and sweaty.

Does it infringe on (your) rights to spread a nasty virus? What rights does the mask affect?

My right to breathe without collapsing from heat stroke and breathing difficulties.

Those who don’t want to wear a mask in public should just stay home.

Umm... No. Those who are sick should stay home. Those who are at risk should stay home. Those who are scared should stay home. Let the rest of us live our lives however we see fit.

You can down-vote this all you like, but you know I'm right.

And the woman in the picture shows exactly why I don't wear masks. They are stifling hot, creating lots of sweat.

Let the negative votes soar, but you know I'm right.

I wish some of that money had come to me. But then, I can't vote. The whole vote buying law is bogus anyway. Once in the booth, no one knows who you are voting for. I say abolish the law. Throwing good money after bad.

Get the Ojisans off the roads.

As soon as I can afford to retire, I am going to quit driving. I hate driving to begin with. I don't want to have to do it any more than I have to. I will keep my license, but only for in the case of emergencies. I love walking.

It should be declared again as soon as possible before corona cases become 1,000 tomorrow.

I just want it to be declared again so that I can take some time off.

But, alas, I live in Iwate, with ZERO confirmed cases, so even if declared, I will probably still have to show up.

I went there against my will a few years ago. My wife wanted to go, but I had no interest. Until I actually went and saw everything. It is a wonderful place to visit and if I ever go back to Hokkaido I will gladly go again. I highly recommend it.

Not living near Tokyo, I won't be going anytime soon, and certainly not until they admit people who don't wear those god-forsaken masks, but I welcome anything that brings us back to a state of reality.

More than anything, right now, I want grandchildren. But I have not said that to my children, because I don't want to put them under any pressure. Having children is the best and worst experience in life. I desperately want grandchildren, but not at the expense of my own children's happiness. I will support my children no matter what decision they make.

Yet another reason I won't be flying anytime soon. It's been 15+ years since I've been home, and it doesn't look like I'll be going anytime soon with these stupid rules. 14 hours smothered under a mask? No thanks.

I still say the best way to "downsize and simplify" is to just cancel the damn thing. Throwing good money after bad.

"The cold never bothered me anyway."

Sounds much better than a sauna. I would love to try it, but the price is a little too high. Plus, I don't live in Tokyo. Maybe on one of my trips down there, but not until the price goes down quite a bit.

Posted in: Abe's support rebounds despite ex-justice minister's arrest: poll See in context

The problem is that the voting system is such that there are very few "district" candidates. The top however number of candidates are elected. No candidate has to directly relate to voters. As long as they make the cut they are in. Very few, if any, candidates, ever get a majority of votes. If they went to a district system where candidates were actually held accountable to their constituents, something might actually change. Though, I can't say that for sure. It hasn't helped much in the US. But still, as long as your in the top 30 out of 31 candidates (like in the local city council "elections" where I live), why should you feel accountable? Do as you will. But if you are that one loser, what a loser you are.

Posted in: Store staff stop talking to customers because of coronavirus; some hope change is permanent See in context

My answer to being screamed at with "IRASSHAIMASE" is "irasshaimashita."

I could certainly do without being screamed at by every employee. I actually had a part-time job at a major so-called Super-Supermarket, and part of the training for the meat section employees was to yell out IRASSHAIMASE in order to attract customers. Or so they said. I didn't work in the meat department, so I didn't have to do it, but as a customer, that just turns me off.

"There is a possibility that clinical trials will continue in July," a Fujifilm spokesman said, responding to a Nikkei report that any approval will be delayed until July or later, due to a lack of patients for trials.

Isn't it a good thing that there is a lack of patients? As I have said from the beginning of this mess, it's much ado about nothing.

Let the negative votes roll in.
