Why? Its not yours.

If the someone decides to give you a present of money, for no matter the situation, it's definitely yours to keep.

I suppose if someone gives you a present of money for your birthday, or whatever occasion, you are going to say the same thing! The money was given in good faith, accepted, and them returned.

It's also up to you to decide what to do with it.

Upon accepting the money, it was hers, and it was her choice what to do with it as well.

I once found a couple of passports, US and South Korean, in a bag with, a moderate amount of cash and a small wallet containing credit and debit cards.

Turned it in to the local police station, took about maybe 10 minutes to tell the the details of where, and how I found it, filled out the forms, refused the "finder's fee" and went on my way.

It's just the right thing to do!

roughly half the material related to them was found to have been deleted.

Bull! The material is still out there somewhere, on someone's computer, or in a cloud.

Whomever made this statement is an idiot!

Again with the “boyfriend.” The Japanese press calls him 婚約者(fiancé) as it should be. Why boyfriend? They even talk about Komuro’s mother’s ex fiancé.

THey should be calling Komuro's mother's ex-fiancé, ex-boyfriend too!

Posted in: Woman gets 3 years in jail for starvation death of 10-month-old daughter See in context

One other thing, if I remember this case correctly weren't her older children from a different marriage and the poor baby who died was from her remarriage to her current separated husband?

Konishi has a history of psychiatric treatment and was admitted to a health care facility in Chiba Prefecture immediately after the incident. She was arrested after her discharge from the medical institution.

And why didnt her separated husband do something about it his child? He had to have known something was wrong

I hope they only feed her every month or so for the next 3 years! Just to give her a tiny idea of what her daughter went through.

hundreds of thousands of military will just be released? I doubt it.

What is it with people that have a hard time reading articles being sticking their feet in their mouth?

Or perhaps they did read it, and didnt understand what they read?

Posted in: Opposition parties unite in bid to break LDP's grip on power See in context

he least 20 years have been a failure in many respects (economy dead, population declining and rural areas in decay) But, that doesn't mean that the opposition would have done any better. I really haven't heard much from any politician that makes me think these problems will be addressed).

Add another 10 years and I'd agree!

If the people in the districts where the LDP leadership is running lose their seats it would cause turmoil within the LDP.... never happen, but one can wish!

Posted in: Average gasoline price in Japan rises to 7-year high See in context

Started travelling to work by bicycle pre-covid about 4 years ago. Never looked back. Exercise, free ( bike cost 40,000yen which paid for itself in less than a year) and faster than commuting with the salary zombies to shibuya then changing to shinagawa). I recommend everyone to ditch the gas guzzling cars and busses and cycle.

FYI not everyone in Japan lives in Tokyo, and in fact, many of us own economical cars, hybrids, clean diesel, or electric.

Cant count on public transportation either.

Another "Tokyo-centric" post!

Posted in: Average gasoline price in Japan rises to 7-year high See in context

Always gets my blood pressure up when gasoline prices rise here. ENOS and other suppliers have plenty of "stock" on hand, and yet jack their prices in an instant, their excuse being the rise is linked to future purchases of gas, ok fine.

BUT, they are slower than guano in dropping the prices when costs go down.

Order them with no salt, guaranteed to get fresh hot fries every time!

Posted in: Princess Mako visits imperial graves ahead of high-profile marriage See in context

I feel sorry for her, as she seems to be grabbing on the first guy she could to get the hell out of the grip of the IJA.

His reputation, according to media and of course SNS, aint all that great, and not just the scandal about his mother and her former finance.

I hope he gets her the mental health care she obviously needs!

Posted in: No. 2 House Republican refuses to say 2020 election wasn’t stolen See in context

"I’ve been very clear from the beginning," he said. “If you look at a number of states, they didn’t follow their state-passed laws that govern the election for president. That is what the United States Constitution says. They don’t say the states determine what the rules are. They say the state legislatures determine the rules,” the Louisiana congressman said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Pressed by moderator Chris Wallace on whether the election went beyond a few irregularities to be considered “stolen,” Scalise responded: “It’s not just irregularities. It’s states that did not follow the laws set which the Constitution says they’re supposed to follow.”

Chris Wallace should have asked him for specifics about what exactly he is talking about!

He is just beating around the bush and its bs.

Posted in: IS suicide bomber kills 50 inside Afghanistan mosque See in context

As the civil war escalates, more people will come to support Biden's decision to abide by the contractual obligation of Trump's screwed up negotiated withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Screwed up or otherwise, the US really needed to get out of that quagmire and no matter who was the President, and no matter if it went smoothly or not, someone from one side or the other was going to complain that it was a clusterfruck!

None of this is about "religion", it's all about power, and sadly it's the people who just want to live in peace that suffer all the time.

When I read articles like this, or see news on TV , I always find myself feeling grateful for "winning" the lottery of being born in a relatively safe and secure country!

According to the ministry, Pfizer's Japanese subsidiary has submitted an application to change part of the approved content to allow for the third shots.

Just what is the "Japanese subsidiary" changing in the content of the shot?

Do they really need to be subsidised by tax payers?

The money has already been budgeted, so they have to use it! (sarcasm) And it's also to give a boost to areas that have been hardest hit by the pandemic, but not often discussed, because everyone knew that the virus only spread at nighttime in drinking establishments! (sarcasm)
