Posted in: Abe says sorry over political funding case See in context

I still don't understand why paying for a party is so bad. There are so many other things he did that are much more worthy of censure or worse. Bringing the Olympics comes to mind.

Posted in: What are your fondest childhood memories of Christmas? See in context

All the Christmas shows and specials. How the Grinch Stole Christmas. A Charlie Brown Christmas. And many more.

Posted in: Prosecutors decide not to indict Abe over dinner party spending See in context

Instead, they are planning to file a summary indictment against his state-paid secretary soon for allegedly not keeping the financial records.

So, as always, the underlings have to take the heat for the elite. Pathetic. Not that I think paying for a meal is a real crime. This is going nowhere.

Posted in: What is Christmas going to be like for you this year? See in context

We're (my wife and I) are empty nesters. Two of our three children live quite far away. We have no grandchildren. The two of us have to work that day because, well, because Japan. So, this year Christmas will be like any other day of the year.

Posted in: Biden addresses COVID bill, holiday pandemic precautions See in context

I was so happy to hear that President Trump lost the election.

I was so depressed to hear that VP Biden won the election.

Are there no good people to vote for? Not so much.

Mezameshi Terebi said it was likely an aftershock (余震) from 3-11-11. Seems like a long time for an aftershock, but I would prefer that to a precursor to another 3-11-11 in the future.

Good on JAXA! I look forward to reading what they discover about these particles and other substances.

Posted in: What we know about COVID-19 vaccines and side effects See in context

Bring it on. I'd rather suffer from a little needle in the arm once, even if follow-ups are required like for the flu, than suffocating masks for months. I want a badge that I can hang around my neck certifying I got the vaccination.

Posted in: 90% of Japanese firms plan to skip year-end, New Year parties due to virus See in context

It's kind of ironic that the one year that practically everyone wants to forget is the one year when a party set aside to do so shouldn't be held. I want to forget this year, but I'll be doing it at home. No gatherings for me.

How about just getting rid of school uniforms altogether?

Posted in: Japan to begin COVID-19 vaccinations on reservation basis See in context

Bring it on. Do we get a badge to wear around our neck certifying we have been vaccinated so that we don't have to wear those useless masks?

Not from me. I agree 100%.

Posted in: Are you becoming numb to the daily reports of surging coronavirus cases or does it still worry you when you see each day's figures? See in context

I am not numb to it, but neither do I worry about it so much. I look to the numbers more out of curiosity than anything else.

Still waiting for that vaccine so I can take off the mask.

Posted in: Texas asks U.S. Supreme Court to help Trump upend election in long-shot lawsuit See in context

I don't particularly look forward to President Biden. But then again, I wouldn't particularly look forward to a second term of President Trump. But it is what it is. Get over it and hope for the best.

Posted in: COVID-19 wrecked 2020. Will 2021 be different? See in context

Bring on the vaccine. Get rid of the useless masks.

I got my influenza shot last week, as I have done many years before, and as I will many years hereafter. An additional vaccine for corona would be no big deal. Unless a person has an underlying health reason they can't be vaccinated, they should. Certainly better than having to wear a mask.

I want a return to normal because I want to be able to enjoy visiting my children who have moved away (that is, be able for myself to travel or my children to travel) and to go to restaurants, amusement parks, and other places without those despicable masks.

I will be first in line, last in line, whatever in line to get a vaccine. I will even sign up as a test subject. Anything to get rid of those stupid masks.

There are many places that require masks, even for those that have legitimate reasons for not being able to wear them. Why not have those places require vaccines? Certainly more effective than masks.

In case I haven't made it clear, I HATE MASKS!

Yet another reason to cancel the Olympics this time, next time, and forever and for always. They are a joke with no laughter.

Posted in: Have you or anybody you know been tested for the coronavirus? If yes, what was the result? See in context

I know one who was tested because the person was to be hospitalized for a non-Covid reason. That person tested negative and was hospitalized normally instead of having to go to a special ward.

Posted in: Support for Suga's cabinet falls to 50% amid virus resurgence: poll See in context

Why anyone cares who paid for a party is beyond me. Abe may have done a lot of things in the wrong way, but this is a non-issue.

Cancel the Olympics. Too much money spent on a non-event.

Give me the vaccine. I will be a guinea pig. I just want to get rid of masks.

And the LDP is no where near being either "liberal" or "democratic."

Posted in: No 'bonenkai' this year ... and many employees won't miss them See in context

Haven't heard anything from my workplace, but I doubt they will hold one. Almost every other "event" has been cancelled, so probably the bonenkai as well. Attendance has never been mandatory, with only half or so showing up, so even if they do hold one this year, it will probably be even lower. I will not be going.

Posted in: First in line for COVID vaccine? Some U.S. health care workers say no See in context

Sign me up. I want to get rid of those horrendous masks and be able to take a trip to Tokyo to meet my children, or have them come to visit me, without a 14-day self-imposed quarantine.

Yet another reason to get rid of school uniforms. SHIFUKU for all.

Posted in: Have you been eating out at restaurants much recently as coronavirus cases surge? See in context

No. I can probably count on one hand, certainly both hands, the number of times I have left the house except for work and shopping. We used to go to sushi or yakiniku restaurants several times a month, but not now. I hate those despicable masks, so I won't go anywhere that requires them. My wife, not so much. She was used to wearing masks due to her allergies, so she takes up most of that work. If you want me to patronage your business, get rid of silly mask rules. Until then, I'm a "stay home" guy.

They must be really strapped for cash to go for such a low amount. Not even a month's salary.

Posted in: Once it becomes safe to travel again without the hassles of coronavirus tests, quarantines and being vaccinated, which countries are going to be top of your list to visit? See in context

I haven't left Japan in around 15 years or so, long before corona, and I have no plans to go anywhere anytime soon, no matter the conditions of air travel. The TSA in the US and airlines in general have made the experience absolutely horrible. Why leave such a great country? I can't imagine a scenario in which I would willfully go to another country. Japan is the best.

Posted in: Mos Burger’s new luxury burger contains 0.18% alcohol See in context

The main problem with Mos Burgers is kind of hinted at in the article. They are so soft and crumbly that they are almost impossible to eat by hand like most burgers from other fast food joints. I always put the burger on a plate and eat with a knife and fork. Even so, they still break up. But they taste good, and this one sounds like something I would like to try.
