Podcast Harassment

[music] Harassment.

The breadth and variety of
harassment I have discovered on

Engineers Japan doing all these
stories over the last few years,

has been impressive, and yet I keep finding
new ones, new ones that I didn’t think

about or didn’t know about, and as some
are justified, some are not. I mean, I’m

basically working on podcast harassment
right now, where it’s either would be a guy

who has a podcast, tells you about his
podcast all the time, or podcasts are just

annoying you. I think it would be the guy,
because it has to be a person that harasses you.

Harassment has to come from
someone and lead to something else, so it

would have to be, yeah, that guy who
has a podcast, who’s constantly telling

about his podcast, trying to take you to
check out my last podcast. I try not to be

that guy, but it happens, because sometimes
we’ll talk about something, let’s say, in

my office, and it’ll be something I did
talk about on the podcast, and I want to

either say the same thing, but I want to,
like, if you’ve already heard the podcast,

I don’t want to tell you it again,
because you know my thoughts and ideas.

But then I worry I bring it up too often,
but I think the fact that I worry that I

bring it too often, I think the fact that
I bring it up too often, which is a fact,

shows that I’m probably not bringing
it up too often. I hope that’s my goal.

My hope, my desire, is to not bring things
up too often when it comes to the process.

I don’t want to be one of
those podcast guys, when I am

absolutely definitely one
of those podcast guys.

Lots of stories this
week, thematically.

I was drawn after I did a couple
of harassment stories in my notes.

I was drawn towards
the harassment.

Pretty good. There’s
some other stories,

but harassment is our
main theme for today.

I normally, for people who
are viewing on the internet,

try to keep the notes
a bit farther away, so

it’s under the camera,
so I’m actually usually

holding it like right
here. I’m half blind now.

I don’t want to get
into my personal issues,

but if I hold my notes
too far away, not only is my

handwriting messy, I just
can’t see them anymore.

So you’re going to see
a lot of me reading the

notes whether relatively
up close to my face.

It is the sad development
of the constant degradation

of the human body, which I
am experiencing in real time.

I’m okay with it though. You know
what’s shitty though, the worst part.

So right now, my
right eye, it’s fuzzy.

And if you want the
story, I’m going to tell that

story in the Seeming
Bee, so if you want the

actual story, which has
some honestly traumatic

elements, you can listen to that episode
that’s going to come out after this one.

But I, it’s not, I’m blind.
I’m fuzzier than normal.

So my eyes are already
garbage. I’ve been wearing

glasses since I was 16,
but my left eye basically

can’t focus right now.
So what it’s doing is

my right eye can’t focus.
My left eye is now doing

all the heavy lifting.
I’m pretty sure that’s

what was happening before
anyways. But as a result,

everything’s a little
fuzzier and I actually

would be easier if I just
had a patch and couldn’t

see. Like that, I actually
would be better visually.

Like if I just had this eye closed and it
was just reading or doing normal stuff,

it’s actually clearer
than having this eye open.

But I’m pretty
sure that’s also bad.

There’s no good thing here.
There are no good things here.

Dave is here.
Dave’s a good thing.

Dave is sleeping my lap.
He’s been very annoying today.

I think I’ve started this
a half hour later than

I normally would have because Dave
would not leave me alone. Harassment.

It’s, it’s, pet harassment.
I’m going to be trying to

frame everything in
some kind of harassment.

Some of the harassment
I’ve learned about there

was a maternity harassment.
So you’re having a baby.

You want to go
on maternity leave.

So they harass you. You get
pregnant and they harass you to quit.

There’s men going
on paternity leave.

They harass you not to take the paternity
leave that you are legally obligated to.

But we’re going to get
some interesting ones today.

The first one and this
is again, this was new.

So I do enjoy new things
in direct power harassment.

And so this, what is
it? It’s actually the kind

of the first question.
What is indirect power

harassment? This is when
you’re forced to watch

verbally abusive behavior
towards a subordinate

which causes you
emotional distress.

So basically you’re in
an office. Most Japanese

offices are open concept. I
work in an open concept office.

I fucking hate it.

I understand the idea
of the concept office.

I don’t think the
reality matches the idea.

I think the idea is that we’re
supposed to be like collaborating

and working together.
But really what happens is

I’m trying to get some
work and the dude behind

me is having a conversation
on his phone and his

voice is way too loud
when he’s on the phone.

The people are in the table,
the desk across from me

are having a different
conversation and they’re

speaking in normal tones. But
that’s just now cross volume.

There’s a dude in the far corner and he’s
decided that this is the perfect time to

open an incredibly crunchy
plastic bag where he’s

going to pull out Sembe
and eat the Sembe as loud

as humanly possible,
eating with his mouth

open, filling the office
with a smell of shrimp,

this powdered shrimp, I
also hate, honestly makes

me feel sick, and then some
there’s some drama somewhere else.

That’s the reality of
the open concept office.

I think the second
part is the open

concept office means that your
boss can see everybody in one go.

So it’s not like a micro-managing thing,
but it’s kind of like if I can see you,

you can’t be fucking
around too much.

If I was going to fuck
around, I would just get up and

relieve the office and
look busy. The interesting

thing, if you’re working
on an open concept

office and you are constantly
in meeting rooms and

conference rooms and
stuff, they think you’re but

this is not advice. Although
you could take it as advice.

If you are constantly
in meeting rooms,

watching YouTube videos
or TikTok or working on your

novel, other people will
see you in that room at

a computer writing,
working. You’re a busy guy.

I’m not saying anyone
has ever done that, but

there’s if you walk around
with paper in your hand

or a notebook and you
walk with determination,

people think you’re busy.
People thinking you’re

busy is more important
than actually being busy.

As long as you get you
or all your work done,

all that extra time
that could be like filled

time, what the fuck
am I talking about?

This guy worked at a
company. It was a government

inspection agency and
he said it was painful

to feel complicit. So
he basically, he’s working

on an office, his boss is
standing behind him with

these bosses subordinate
and his boss is just reaming

this guy and he’s sitting
there in silence and he

says that complicity
caused him pain because he’s

like, I didn’t stand up
for him. I just sat there

and that caused me
emotional distress.

April 2021, he said he
witnessed daily abuse.

The boss was calling
this subordinate a rotten

human and he said he
should give his salary back

because he doesn’t
do any real work.

And then he said like you
should quit or it would be faster,

you should just go hug a
female passerby or expose

yourself below the belt
and get caught by the police.

There’s a couple
of interesting things.

These are very, these
are Japanese insults.

So Japanese insults,
they don’t tend to actually

say anything like that you
would consider directly offensive.

It’s how you talk to
people, not what you say.

So him saying
like you should give

your salary back. I mean,
that’s that’s a lot of pressure.

You’re a rotten human being.

That’s insulting, but not
terrible. But this last one is

like, let’s expedite, expedite
your removal from the company.

Just go commit sexual harassment

and then we’ll be done with
each other and get arrested.

It does lead you to his interesting point
is if you’re the guy sitting in the chair,

what do you do? Do you
stand up for the guy or

do you just like accept
it? So this guy basically

he’s saying, I just sat
there and that caused me

stress that indirect
harassment caused me enough

stress that I’m suing
this government agency.

He filled in a report in
December and by January,

the harassment stopped.
So actually, this guy

who’s making this claim,
he took action and he

didn’t like step in
because I think stepping in

just puts you in the
target. So that’s actually

probably not actually
the best way to house.

He sent in a report. There
was an investigation in

the harassment stopped.
So this boss got in trouble,

but what happens to you?
Well, his evaluation that

year, which was normally
an A, which I assume is

the best, went down to a
B and he says this was an

unfair evaluation and
it’s because he put in

this report to stop the
harassment and everyone’s

going, no, no, no,
no, that’s a fair, fair

evaluation of your work
and your efforts and stuff.

So he’s in a tough spot
and he says, look, he

was treating this indirect
harassment caused me stress.

I had to report it
and then because of

that report, I got a lower
evaluation, that lower

evaluation, of course means
less of a bonus or whatever.

I’m losing money.
So the government

court case isn’t finished
yet, but it is interesting

because I think there
are some valid points

here because it’s not
when you like scream at an

employee in an open office thing, it’s not
just the employee that has to take it on.

It’s the other people like
they get that stress, they get

that sort of reflected
stress. And what do I do

and how do I handle this?
That is all problematic.

So indirect stress, I actually
think there is a validity to it.

I don’t know, I think the problem is like
two people could have an argument, like a

legitimate argument, a
disagreement, whatever,

and then I’m in the
room, do I then claim that

that is indirect harassment because it
caused me stress because I heard them argue.

So then you could see where
it could be taken sort of out of

context, but I think this
case when you get down

to the details because
this guy filed a report

and then it came back on him
and directly everything was in direct.

That’s a very Japanese
way to handle stuff.

It was all indirect.
The boss couldn’t

harass him anymore, but he can
mark him down on his evaluation.

He says this is all unfair.

I think this might be a legitimate
case. I started, I read that title.

I was like, there’s no
way that’s a real thing.

You just got to like buck up and

stuff that happens to another people
you ought to ignore it. And I was like, no,

I work in an open concept
office. I want to murder

half the people in that
room half of the time.

It says 25% murder rate. I
guess if I was successful,

I don’t really want
to hurt anybody.

I just want silence working in the
same place for as long as I have.

I now notice the
quirks of other people

so much that the very
innocuous things set me

off. I’ve always hated
the open concept office.

I don’t think cubicles
are better because I

work with a team and I should
be able to work with my team.

I don’t necessarily think
we deserve an office.

So there is an interesting problem because
for me, the cross chatter, the noise and

stuff, I’m sensitive to it,
I guess. It really bugs me.

I find it very hard to
concentrate. And then we’re

also in a situation where
if I stick on headphones,

I’ll get in trouble. Like
if I stick on just my

noise counseling headphones,
not even listening to

music, they would probably
complain about that.

But in, I’m interested to
see where this case goes.

I’m pretty sure he’s
going to win something.

I don’t think he’s
going to get that much.

The problem is, does
he have to go back to his

office? He wasn’t his
50s. So he might be like

changing sections or retiring
soon or something like that.

I don’t know. But it’s a very tough
position to be in it. It gave me a lot to

think about because I
started out thinking like

indirect harassment. That
sounds like some just wuss stuff.

And then when I actually got the deals,
I’m like, no, because he actually felt he

had to take action and
write a report and then

was kind of punished for it. I do think
this might be legit. More harassment.

This, I think we all
know this. We’ve seen it.

It’s basically Karen’s. They’re
calling it customer harassment.

And I think we’ve
all experienced this

via the internet. So this
experience was not a surprise.

I don’t think this
is a new thing.

But this was about companies
being like, we have to

set up guidelines when
people come into our

stores as customers
and act as at like assholes.

How do we deal with
them? So a lot of them

are like, well, you get
the manager and stuff.

But these are, these are,
okay, we have to define

it. And that’s actually
was the bit to me that was

most interesting is how
do you actually go about

defining what constitutes
harassment? Because

also it’s all conceptual
and about feelings and stuff.

So that makes it a
little more difficult.

It’s essentially
customers losing their shit.

They did a survey in 2017
of 50,000 people. That’s

a pretty good sample size. These were
all people who worked in customer service.

70% said they had
experienced some form of the

following harassment,
most of it being verbal.

So it’s people just
talking, shouting, getting

super angry at some
customer service person.

And this is always bugged
me. I did customer service,

but I had a very positive
experience overall.

I’ve mentioned this before
when I was university.

I sold dog food in
a dog food store.

We didn’t keep dogs. We just sold food.
So dog food cat food, other kinds of food.

People would come in, people with pets,
people would bring in their dogs mostly,

and they were super
chill. You give their dog a

snack, a cookie, and the
owner was really happy.

Everyone who came in, 99% of the people
was super chill. I didn’t have any of these

care and experiences that
you see on the internet.

But I think the dog
food selling industry,

it’s a different customer
base. And as long as

you treat their animals well,
they’re super happy about it.

In Japan, it got to
like people throwing

money at the person and
them crying as they pick it up.

That was one of the
stories that was in there.

And there were several demands that people
get down on their knees to apologize.

Like the bowing sort of you’ve
seen in a movie, bowing to the

emperor, seza, kneeling
bow. I’m sorry, put

your head on the ground kind
of thing, which is demeaning.

It’s supposed to be
and not something

that a customer service
person should have to do.

Because as we all know
deep down in our hearts,

that minimum wage
employee has no power.

They’re doing as they
are told, they’ve been

told what they can and
cannot do and it’s mostly can’t.

And you’re angry at them and you’re
angry at them because you’re not getting

satisfaction for anything.

And you think, oh,
Japan’s very polite society,

Japan’s a very great
place. It’s got its fair

share of shitty people
and those shitty people,

it turns out are a specific demographic.
One that if you’ve watched an industry

in Japan before, you will know what
is coming next. There was a statement,

“Someone grabbed me by the
collar and threatened to kill me.

” So that’s problematic.
The 2020 survey

found that men are
75% of the offender.

So I think in the west,
because of the internet primarily,

we have an image of the
Karen. It’s an older female

who is trying to assert
her power in the world.

In Japan, I think it’s an older
Japanese man, 75% and over 40.

So it’s 40 plus where
most of the people

I think it’s different.
I think they’re trying

to hold on to the power
of they’ve gotten so

entitled because now
they are an older man and

the hierarchy of the
world has built around them

in such a way and
respect and whatnot.

So at any time, they can fly
off the handle and they think

they should just
be forgiven it for it.

They should they think they
should just be forgiven for it

because I’m an older
man and everyone should

respect me and do what I
want and make me happy.

That is the the
patriarchy in action.

90% of the people who do this
kind of behavior are over 40,

75% of total are men.
So not a surprise to me

that older Japanese men
are acting like shit when

they get pissed off.
Because yeah, they have

been raised in a society
where they get to this

point where they think
everyone should do what

they want if they
don’t do it instantly.

They think that’s a problem. I think
some people need some ass cakings.

It’s the final harassment
for today, which is very nice.

A GSDF member, so
a ground self-defense

force member, a member
of the Japanese military.

He was forced to write a 10,000 character
paper reflecting on his self as a penalty.

This was interesting. So he’s
in the military and they’re like

you’ve done something bad.
I kind of want to hold back

on what the bad bit is.
You’ve done something bad.

I want you to reflect on
that. So I’m going to make

you write an essay like
a child in high school.

That is your punishment.
He joined the military in 1986.

This incident happened in 2017.

So if he joined when
he was 20, this incident

actually happened.
He would have been 51

when the incident happened.
The commander was angry

that he had gained
weight. So this guy who was

51 years old in the
ground self-defense force.

His commander was angry at
him because he gained some weight.

I don’t know what
they didn’t say

how much weight. He might have
been a chubby guy, might not be.

This guy claims
they were trying to

get him to quit. He had a
bum leg probably because

he was in the military
and did activities and got

hurt and that hurt never
really healed properly.

I as someone who’s done
judo my whole life have

several injuries that
never really healed properly.

So he’s got a bum leg.
His room was on the

fifth floor with no
elevator. So he had to take

five flights of stairs
every single day up and

down to get to his room.
And they knew he had a

bum leg and they put
them there anyways.

And then they’re like, hey,
you got a bum leg, clearly,

you’re not going to
be able to exercise as

much as you used to
when you were 20, you 50,

one year old piece
of shit. You fat fuck.

So I’m going to make you
write an essay. They wouldn’t let

him leave until he’d
finished the essay.

So he had to work on
this for nine hours straight.

They wouldn’t let
him go to sleep.

And he’s saying like this
was all just different kinds of

harassment to try
to get him to quit.

The government argued
that this was a legitimate order

despite the fact that
like they’re just nigh him

sleeping stuff and they
know he’s got a bum leg

and they’re doing
all this other crap.

He’s suing them for 1.5 million
yen. The court has been like,

absolutely, this is
power harassment.

You know he’s got a
bum leg. He’s 51 years old.

He’s with a bum leg, which
means yes, he’s going to gain some

weight because he can’t
exercise like he used to.

He’s not a 20 year old recruit anymore.
You guys have put him on the fifth floor.

Fuck you guys.
1.5 million yen to him, please.

Shouldn’t you be able to leave the
JSTF after a set number of years?

I mean, you should be
able to leave, but I think

this guy was he probably
done X amount of years

and wanted to stay because
he wanted his pension.

I don’t know. I don’t
know this system because

it’s not the same as
the military in America or

other countries. So
he could have retired.

Yes, but I bet he was
wanted to stay and this has

been his whole life.
Like this was clearly

if he’d been there for 31
years, this was his first job.

I bet to a degree
for most of that,

he liked being in the
ground self defense force.

And he wanted to hit
where he was getting, he’s 51.

He’s like X 65 is
going to be retirement.

He’s going to hit
that retirement age.

And then he’s going
to get a bigger pension.

And then I bet these
commanders like you,

I don’t like you. You’re not like as active
as the other 20 year olds running around.

He probably hasn’t
gotten to this highest level.

Again, and my mind
keeps going back probably

because he was injured.
He couldn’t just do stuff.

So he got a desk job and
he worked as a desk job.

Maybe he was competent.
Maybe not. I don’t know.

They wanted him out.
The thing is weird to me is

the pension set by
the government it’s paid

for by taxpayer money. It doesn’t negatively
impact these the commander of the base.

It doesn’t make him look bad
if this guy hits retirement age.

That’s the weird part to
me. The only reason the

commander of the base
would have done this is

because he did not like this
guy. And that is power harassment.

That is it. Like I’m
in a position of power.

I don’t like you. So I’m going to make
your life worse. He could have quit. Yes.

At 51, though, in Japan,
you’re probably not

getting a different job.
So unless he’s ready and

financially capable
of retiring, because 1.

5 million yen, because we
use the M word, the million,

sounds like a lot. If you
put that into American

money, that’d be about
$10,000. That’s money,

but it’s not life
changing money.

It is pretty shit. I think the
more I read into it and the

more sympathetic I came
to be towards this guy.

Because I bet he was,
again, that fifth floor bit,

that’s one of those little
like just every single day.

He’s got a bad
knee list to run him

down, run him down, run
him down. And that’s years

and years and years.
He lives in that dormitory.

So I don’t know how
much money he has, but

$10,000 while it is a
significant sum of money,

it’s not going to be enough to retire for
the next, let’s say, 20 years of your life.

You’re not living
off that for 20 years.

Prime Minister Kishita, he is pissed.
So they wanted to have a party.

What is it? The LDP, the liberal democratic
party. They have all the junior members,

they’re like, “Hey guys,
welcome to the democratic party.

” You guys are
awesome. We’re all going to

get together, have a
little party. Some of those

are going to dip out,
but you have a good time.

Then, so all these
young junior members of

the LDP are having
drinks this, like I assume,

fancy hotel, curtain
goes up, what happens? A

bunch of go-go dancers
come out in their underwear,

and then the party gets started.

And they got these young
politicians putting thousand

yen notes in their
mouth and holding it out

to the dancers and the
dancers taking it from

their mouth with their
mouth. So you know what

kind of party it was. Now,
this doesn’t really have

the optics that the LDP
really wants to be putting

out in the world.
Japan is suffering from a

lot of like, “Hey, maybe
our patriarchy bullshit

isn’t cool anymore,
maybe we got to stop that,

maybe we got to be
inclusive, maybe we got to

good people, we got
to stop fucking around.

” Back to the old men
issue. We got these old men

who grew up in the
60s, 70s, and 80s who are

still running stuff and
they don’t understand

the world has changed.
And so they’re still doing

dumb shit, like, “Hey,
let’s have a party where

people can take pictures
and have go-go dancers come

out, have them party
with the junior members

where people can take
pictures.” And you know,

that’s not going to get
out and cause us any

problems because we’re
all men having a good time.

So Kishida, the prime minister, gets up and
is like, “Guys, what the fuck? Seriously?”

“What the fuck is wrong with you guys?”
So the two guys who organized the party,

they had to resign.
They were out already.

So two guys who already
lost their jobs over this,

he’s actual statement.
He didn’t stand up and say,

“What the fuck guys?” I
would be a great politician

in that I would literally
stand up and go like,

“Guys, what the fuck?
What are you doing?”

What he said in no way
is this consistent with

the diversity the cabinet
aims for. So he’s like,

we’re trying to be
inclusive. We’re trying to

show that we are
equitable, that we care about

all the people of society, that
we don’t treat people poorly.

So objectifying
women is really just

not on the docket here. You
guys got to chill this shit out.

And since these old
dudes with money,

they don’t think they’re going
to get in trouble for anything.

They don’t think they
do anything wrong.

Guys had to sit down.
They had to sit down and

have a meeting to
organize this party like,

“Hey, two, three, 70-year-old,
60-year-old Japanese

men sitting in a conference
room like we got these

young guys out here. We want to
have like a welcome party for them.

” And then these old dudes are like, “Hey,
you know be awesome for a welcome party?”

Because let’s not even
take into account that at

this time, female
politicians, junior members

might not just all be dudes.
Because back when they

started, it was only
dudes. So they’re like

not in their brain. They
can’t even comprehend

that there might be women included in this
and this might be off-putting for them.

You don’t be a great party.
Back in my day in the 80s.

We had these ladies come
out and they were wearing

like basically nothing.
It was awesome.

They did a little “no,
no, no, no, no, no” for you.

And then we put money in our mouth
and it’s good money over our mouth.

And I was incredibly sexually
frustrated for like days afterwards.

The image is bad. Again,
two guys lost their job.

I’m just to imagine that
meeting that at the end of the

meeting, they’re all like
high-fiving each other

with what this great
plan they came out with.

And then when that first
picture hit the internet,

my god, the surprise
that like, whoa, people

are unhappy about this?
This thing that we did,

the way our government
has run, the only saving

grace of this is they
didn’t use taxpayer money.

This was actually all privately funded. So
at least the taxpayers didn’t put the bill,

which has been a
problem in the past.

All right, since we’re just
sort of talking about sexy,

sexy stuff, there was a
couple of surveys done

about the sexless nature
of Japanese relationships

and so we’re talking
about the birth rate is

incredibly low in Japan.
The step before birth rate

is the sex rate and that’s
something people are

not generally comfortable
talking about, but it is known now.

A lot of young
people are just losing

interest in relationships. So a lot of
young men aren’t going after relationships.

A lot of young people are
not getting into relationships.

A lot of young people are
staying virgins later into life.

This is all problematic because it means
those relationships are not developing.

They don’t know what they’re
doing. They don’t form solid

relationships and that’s why
they don’t have marriages,

marriage rates, also dropping.
There were two surveys done.

So this is why the
numbers don’t match up.

It’s interesting. They did not give the
number of the sample size, which could skew

things very wildly one
way or the other, but 48.

3% of married couples
do it zero times a month.

That’s it. So you’re married
and you just do not have

sex. This is a 16.4%
increase in the last 20 years.

So there’s always
couples. Maybe they’re

not particularly passionate.
They don’t have sex often.

They get a little
older. They decide that

it’s not really worth it.
It’s too much mental stress,

something like that.
There is an understandable

amount of people who
just don’t have sexual

relationships with their partner.
But nearly half is an amazing.

Oh, Dave’s making very
cute sounds down on my lap.

Oh, Scruffy. Oh, USA.

Really? Sexless. Okay, whatever.
Dave, you, Scruffy is not mad, Dave.

This is Dave. He is on
my lap 90% of the time.

Oh, he’s just stretched
his sexy legs out.

Check this out. Oh, you
get a little leg action there.

Okay, young people
don’t get married, but they

have sex all the time.
Once they get married,

Yeah, that’s weird. Okay,
you ask. Because it means

when you’re young, you
are a sexually active person,

getting married
should not inhibit that.

I could understand it the
number going down, like go

ahead from every day to
once a week or something.

Sure, that’s a significant decline, but
still, you’re doing it. I find it weird.

If I’m attracted to someone
being physical with them,

increases that attraction to me.

But anyways, let’s get back
onto the surveys. This is a very

survey heavy podcast
in general. So if you like

your surveys, this is
the place to come 13.

9% do it once a month. So
you have 48.3% or never doing

it all stick on top of that 13.9%
or only doing it once a month.

So that is 50 60% of people are
doing it less than twice a month. 24.

3% of men say their partner
has no response to them.

So basically they try to
get romantic or maybe they

don’t even know how anymore
because it’s been so long.

And their partner does
not respond positively

to their advances. 12% of the
men say they lack motivation.

So they’re too tired from work.

They come home. They
see their wife and like, I don’t

even want to right now
whether she wants to or not.

It seems like in these
sexless marriages, both

parties are in the
same situation where the

the men’s like, I don’t
have the motivation.

The women’s like, well,
neither do I. So there we are.

22.6% of women say
that it is mendoxy.

So mendoxy is the japanese
for troublesome or a hassle.

It is annoying. There’s a
couple of ways you can

interpret mendoxy, but
mendoxy is always negative.

There’s no good mendoxy.
It’s troublesome, too

much work, a hassle. So
like homework is mendoxy.

I don’t want to do
it. It’s too much work.

Living your life for a company
is mendoxy. It’s troublesome.

I don’t want to do it.
So they’re saying having

sex with their partner,
22.6% of women are saying

that is mendoxy. It’s
too much of a hassle to

actually have sex with
them. 20.8% say they’re too

tired from work. So that
there is 40% of women,

20% are saying it’s just
I don’t like it anymore.

It’s just too much work
and the other 20% are

saying I’m too tired.
And my argument about

the birth rate in Japan, I many times on an
engineer’s pan have directly linked that to

the work-life balance
culture in Japan because

they don’t have energy to
do things other than work.

They put all their
energy to work.

It means you don’t have
these other relationships.

These other aspects of
your life. A different survey

was done in 2024
and found that 64.

2% of married couples were
sexless. So that’s one survey saying

48.3% about 50%. The
next one is saying 64.2%.

So that is shockingly different.
That is a shocking number

because now we’re getting
65% of people who are

married just don’t have
sex. And that is normally

considered an important
part of relationship.

But to me, there’s the
other side of it where the

cheating culture in
Japan is so almost blatant

because love hotels exist.
Love hotels they claim

are because we
live in family units.

You got young people
who live with their families.

They can’t just have
sex in their apartment.

So they go to a love
hotel with their partner.

But realistically, that would
not sustain an industry.

So it’s got to be
married people having sex

with other married
people for the most part.

It’s that’s a bit shocking.
12.9% of students

who went to universities
abroad are sexless.

Compared to 53.4% of graduates
from Japanese universities are sexless.

So there is an
exposure to foreign

cultures that actually
increases maybe your drive

or understanding or
desire to have sex.

So it seems like having
experiences outside of Japan

broadens your view, which
also includes your view

of sexuality, which is
a very interesting note

and another sort of
commentary on where Japan is

struggling because if
Japan wants to fix anything,

it’s going to have to
fix its birth rate because

otherwise Japan just
isn’t going to exist anymore.

Update on the Johnny’s
and Associates scandal.

Oh, just to update what the story is,
Johnny Keetagawa founded an agency

that does little pop idol bands, mostly
boys, and he was diddling a bunch of them.

Then he died and then people found out,

which actually, this is maybe
the bit that pisses me off

is that he doesn’t, they’re
actually not blaming him.

Seems somehow wrong.

Like it’s almost like
he died and lived his life

in the horrible way he wanted
to live, but he got away with it.

Whereas the people
now, I don’t know how

guilt, I mean, a bunch
of them are complicit.

So they should at least
be fired, probably arrested,

other things like that, but
it’s not gonna happen either.

Johnny’s and Associates is
going to rebrand into smile up.

So if you were abused by Johnny Keetagawa,
just smile up and everything will be fine.

The new company, smile up, is going
to focus on compensating the victims,

which I assume, I mean, that is
probably one of the better outcomes.

At least they’re doing something
they’re obligated to do something.

But it’s okay.

So the next bit is that there’s a new
talent management company will be created.

So Johnny’s and Associates
was a talent management company.

They’re saying we’re taking that
company and making it into smile up,

which is going to compensate
the victims of Johnny Keetagawa.

Then we’re going to make a
new talent management company.

So they’re not, they’re
making a new company in the

hopes of distancing themselves
from Johnny Keetagawa.

They’re saying the company
we have, we’re going to rename.

And that company is going to focus on.

the recompense.

Yeah, a little torn.

I feel like this company
should not be allowed to exist.

But it’s only because I
don’t know who’s in charge.

Like if they got rid of everyone
and swapped everyone out

and like, okay, we’re
going to make a company

to fix the things and make a new company
that manages pop idol bands with oversight.

Maybe that’s okay.

There are still young men who
want to grow up and be pop idols.

So they shouldn’t have
their dreams crushed,

but they also shouldn’t be diddled
by old men like Johnny Keetagawa.

And that’s the bit that needs to
be said more than anything else.

Johnny Keetagawa was diddling little boys.

He was an abuser.

He was taking advantage of his position.

He was a horrible, horrible man
and deserved to be shamed in life.

He deserved to feel his whole
world come down around him.

And that did not happen.

So that to me is the core injustice

that is not being addressed
because we can’t because he died.

So it’s bugging me
that he got away with it.

So all these new companies and
stuff, they don’t mean anything to me.

So the new talent management company,
they’re like, we got to get a name.

And then the guy who’s
president is like, well, we

should be one of like,
maintain the founders element.

Like he’s like, maybe he
wants to put Johnny in

it, which I’m like, dude,
you should be saying.

Johnny Keetagawa was
a disgusting human being

who did old little boys
who wanted to be famous.

And he’s like, no, no, we want to do that.

And then the statement, this
actually statement piss me off.

What is important is that
it represents the energy

and pride that the
performers have cultivated.

But, again, what you’re
saying is like saying this

guy who abused his
position, who abused people,

that’s not as important as these performers
cultivating all their energy and stuff.

It’s like they’re trying
to pass, okay, this is it.

They’re trying to pass by the issue.

They’re trying to just like pretend,

oh, Johnny Keetagawa’s dead, so
I guess it doesn’t matter anymore.

He wasn’t the only one.

I mean, there are more than one victim.

If you want to know exactly,

there were 478 victims, 325
are seeking some kind of redress.

Ah, man, I don’t know.

If they would stand up and say, Johnny
Keetagawa is gross, horrible, awful.

I think I would be more okay
with what they’re doing now.

But the fact that they
are not addressing the

core issue, they’re
letting the core issue go.

It’s really not sitting right with me.

So like your new company, I
don’t know, what does it represent?

Does it represent what
Johnny Keetagawa represented?

We don’t know because you’re not
denouncing what has already happened.

You’re not taking responsibility for it.

I don’t know what I actually expect.

It’s an entertainment company
and they’re inherently abusive.

But when you have kids, people
try to ask you challenging questions.

They’re usually really stupid.

And my daughter wanted
to, for a little while,

she wanted to do like
not like an idol thing.

She wanted to do like modeling
in like magazines and I said,

no, and it’s not that the modeling
in magazines is inherently abusive,

but the people who are attracted
to that are abusive people.

It’s like the argument like video
games make people violence.

I have played video games my entire life.

It has not made me violent.

I think violent people
will be attracted to

video games because
there is violence there in.

Just like a girl wanting
to be in a magazine and

model and stuff, isn’t
inherently manipulative,

but manipulative people are going
to be attracted to that industry.

So that was my concern.

If the industry had integrity, I wouldn’t
have problem with it, but this is it.

The Johnny Kitagawa scandal
shows that the industry,

because everyone was
complicit, doesn’t have integrity,

which is why I wouldn’t
want my kids or anyone

kids to actually go
into it on their terms.

If there’s another way
you could do it on your

terms, then I actually
think it would be fine.

(phone ringing)

This is a little more
uplifting, which is nice.



Ah, Q-Shoo.

On September 28th, so it’s been a very
hot month, that’s not actually important.

Solar power exceeded the need of the
area and some places got free electricity,

and it may continue into
October and November afternoon.

So, Q-Shoo, very bright place, very sunny.

So the perfect kind of
environment for solar panels,

where I live, I don’t know if
it’s good or not, but not Q-Shoo.

Q-Shoo is a very, very sunny place.

Supply and demand have to be balanced.

This is something I didn’t know.

If supply is higher, and
they have to shut down

the machines, that actually
damages the equipment.

So the ideal for solar
panel is that the supply

and demand are equal
as equal as they can be.

There’s also the issue of the inability

to really store the electricity
generated for long term.

So this is maybe to me,
the issue with solar power

at the moment is solar panels
are great, but we need a solar

panel battery so that the
light, the energy it collects

can be stored for use
when it isn’t as sunny.

It’s actually the reason that in Q-Shoo,

they also use nuclear
power plants, the supplant.

So they’re like flip back
and forth, depending on need.

Houses have smart meters,
and they help with distribution.

It’s really important that the smart meter

can tell you how much
they’ve used in the

past, so they can
actually kind of calculate

how much you’re probably
gonna use today, tomorrow.

If they can do that for the whole city,

they can make sure that everything
is in balance and maintain this stuff.

But it is nice to see something
like solar power being successful.

I think it was in Scotland.

I forget what, there
was a different story,

’cause it wasn’t an
English-used pen story.

Didn’t write it down.

I’m pretty sure it was Scotland.

One of their wind farms created
an excess of electricity as well.

So these green power solutions,
as they improve over time,

are becoming more efficient, are becoming
more, I mean, they’re filling the needs,

and they’re not doing it by
destroying the environment as much.

Again, there’s always some to create

all the facilities, the
wind I’ve been in the past,

very serious about the
difference between a windmill.

And it was solar and
in a wind power turbine.

There you go, my words were gone.

In a wind turbine, I’ve
actually been very technical

on that because of an
activity we do at work.

And suddenly wind turbine
was gone from my head,

so I guess I can’t be
as judgmental in the

future, but I’m gonna
be because that’s my job.

As nice to see these technologies moving
forward, supplying enough energy for areas,

and that plus other energy
sources is gonna be amazing.

Hopefully it will fix some of the problems.

Japan just had the hottest
September on record.

It was up an average of 2.6 degrees,

and that I know people are still
trying to argue climate change.

I guess the argument has changed.

It used to be climate change is real.

Now they’re saying, well,
the climate change is all

the time, and there’s
nothing we can do about it.

And there absolutely is
something we can do about it.

(upbeat music)

Nagoya City in Japan.

So we talked about this before.

They’ve tried to encourage
people not to walk up and down

escalators while they’re in motion, ’cause
they’re worried about people falling down.

They get off balance and stuff, so
what they want is you to stand on it,

hold onto the rail, go up to
the top, everyone’s happy.

Nagoya has begun a city-wide ordinance,

making you are not allowed
to walk in the escalator.

They have done a very Japanese
thing, so they’ve made a rule,

but if you break the rule,
there is no punishment.

So if you come to Nagoya
and you walk up the escalator,

maybe an official will come to
you and go, no, no, don’t do that.

Maybe someone will look at you in a dirty
way, but you won’t actually be penalized.

Maybe that maybe a cop
would talk to you and say,

do you know it’s a rule
that you can’t do that?

And you just say no, and they’ll be
like, well, it is, so don’t do it again.

It is the first city in Japan
to make it an actual ordinance.

They do have many rules in
Japan that come with no punishment,

which makes it very hard in
my mind to enforce the rule.

It’s not like I think it should have a
heavy punishment or anything like that,

but if you have no punishment, then people
are not going to really respect the rule.

(upbeat music)

The Japan government is seeking to
dissolve the unification church in Japan.

It’s primarily because
of a probe into donations

that ruin families,
and they had a story

about trading kids and
other questionable practices.

But the one, so the trading kids
one is actually very hard to prove,

because the parents who raised the
kid are gonna just say, that’s my kid,

and you can’t force DNA
tests in their free society.

I was about to say,
unfortunately, but I guess it’s

fortunate I don’t want people,
I don’t know what I want.

I live in this weird, I live in this weird

in between world, where when
you know it’s bad and they’re

doing bad things, I want you
to go and be able to prove it,

but then also I want them to follow
rule of law and not break the law.

So I guess if I had to have
the debate in the argument,

I would actually fall
on the side of the law,

prove the things you can
actually prove, we should

not be like, er, civil
rights and stuff at all.


Anyways, this all stems from Prime Minister,
former Prime Minister Abe being shot,

and the guy who shot him
was angry about the unification

church, his mother had
given massive donations

to the church and ruined
his family financially.

He didn’t actually intend
to attack the Prime Minister.

He thought there was going
to be a unification church leader

at the speech where the Prime
Minister was and there it wasn’t

one, so he decided, well,
here’s my opportunity, he does it.

So this is the scary part,
this is actually the scary part.

It actually started a
probe into the church.

His story came out and then people started
looking at the church and looking at this.

And then people started
coming forward and saying,

“Yes, the church does abuse donations,
“they do pressure you, they do all.

“these things, they do manipulate people

“into taking all their
money, they do ruin families.”

And now the government’s acting on it,
so in a weird way, and I actually feel like

you shouldn’t say this
out loud, he was successful.

As he got the government
to look at the church

and now the government
is looking at the church

and they’re talking about
dissolving the church.

What this means is that
the church is dissolved,

it means it will
lose its tax benefits.

So it just becomes a corporation, but
it has to pay taxes, and for a religion,

the free money, the non-taxable
money, is how they survive.

It’s why these churches
are so focused on money

’cause they can get as much
as they can, they can hoard as

much as they can, and they
can create programs and whatnot

to actually expand their
church and get more money.

So that’s what it’s all about.

I don’t let people tell you otherwise.

Historically speaking, the
reason the Japanese government

can dissolve a religious
group is it’s clearly found,

it has clearly been found to do
harm to public welfare substantially.

So you could do a little public
harm and you wouldn’t get in trouble,

but if you do a lot of public
harm, substantial public harm,

they can dissolve you,
you lose your tax benefits.

Historically speaking, only two
cults have been dissolved so far.

The most famous one was the Alm Cult, AUM,

back in 1995, they did
the Sarin Gas Attack.

It was a Dunes Day Cult,
so they released this gas

onto a subway and it
killed a bunch of people

who made a bunch of
other people really sick.

I read a book on it, it’s pretty horrible.

The people who survived, so the Sarin Gas.

The problem is they suffer from

essentially like pain and
headaches and stuff all the time.

And initially everyone
was very sympathetic.

This was maybe the weirdest
part of the book for me.

Everyone was very sympathetic at first.

Then two years later when you’re like,

I have a headache because of the Sarin
Gas Attack that happened two years ago.

People have lost their sympathy.

They’re like, well, I was two years
ago, you must be over it by now.

But it is a chronic result
of inhaling the Sarin Gas.

Nothing can do about it.

And then so these people are like, my life,
in a weird way has been ruined because

there’s no physical,
you can’t look at me and

say, yes, he was attacked,
something happened.

I can feel internal pain
from now until the day I die.

And that is terrifying to me.

And then the people around
you, they were sympathetic.

But first, oh my God, you
were part of this horrible thing.

And then a couple years later, like,
could you just shut up and aches?

And I understand both sides.

It is, that is an absolute nightmare.

The Prime Day is a big
important Amazon day.

I think we’ve all partaken.


We have all partook in
Prime Day in the past.

I’m not a homers know sure.


You have partaken, I
guess, would be the problem.

Partook is quite fun to say.

33 workers have decided to halt deliveries

because of non-payment
of Prime Day incentives.

Of course, Prime Day means
there are more packages.

Usually in this area, they average
about 90 packages a day back in 2021.

It kind of went up during the pandemic

because people were
ordering more stuff online.

On the busy days, like, Prime Day,
they can get 200 packages a day.

So more than double
the regular amount of work

they have to do, they have to bust out
in the day to make sure people are happy.

They were supposed to get benefits.

So you incentives to work this day.

And then there was non-payment
from, this is a subcontractor.

So you can’t blame Amazon directly,

but also, I mean, because
Amazon’s been in the news,

because there are people
who want to strike and there are

people who want to unionize
and is being problem clearly.

Things connected to Amazon.

This is what I’m noticing.

So the Johnny Keetigawa
story from the beginning

of the story in this
story, it’s these big

companies and just
the tendrils that go out.

They infect other companies.

And these other companies like, oh,
well, I’ll take the incentive for Amazon.

I won’t pay the subcontractor workers.

They’ll just get the regular
pay and I get to keep that extra.

There’s a complicit nature in these
other companies to profit and benefit.

And they don’t want
to take care of a worker.

We live in a shit world.

I’ve done a couple of CMEBs on
capitalism and not anti capitalism,

but I don’t think the
capitalism we live in right now

is real capitalism, because real
capitalism needs to be controlled.

And that’s actually the problem.

It’s not.

These people talk about free capitalism,
but free capitalism leads to monopolies.

And these monopolies,
the FEC, I don’t know.

F’s, federal trade
commission, FTC in America,

they’re actually accusing Amazon of
being a monopoly on the online space now,

because there’s no company
that come up and take its place.

So they might break them up
or talk about breaking them up.

And that is the natural state.

Companies, they try to gain as much power

and push other companies
out and create a monopoly.

But that’s when it’s not capitalism
anymore, because there is no competition.

Capitalism, the fundamental
aspect of it is competition.

So the government actually
needs to step in and regulate,

essentially how big
these companies can get,

but they’re not doing that because
of our capitalist society and whatnot.

And then these companies
are now paying the politicians.

You know, the deal.

I don’t know if I really
have to explain this again.

But I think what we’re living in at
the moment is not real capitalism.

And that’s maybe the issue.

Because real capitalism, I
guess there’s no real things.

Like true communism, true capitalism,
those things don’t really happen.

We always get some bastardization of it.

But you can’t have true
capitalism without a significant

amount of regulation,
which seems antithetical,

but it’s necessary to make sure
that you don’t get monopolies.

Oh, we’re getting into creepy news,
which is super fun for everybody.

Japan users have begun reporting
that their Google Drive accounts

are getting banned, restoring
erotic anime and adult content.

I didn’t even think about it.

Like I have a Google, I
have a Google Gmail account.

You can send a message to

It will come to me.

It comes with a Google Drive.

So you get whatever the 2, 3, 15 gigs.

I forget how many gigs it is.

It’s just free.

So of course you’re going to use it.

And if you want to like,
I don’t want to keep this

dirty, dirty stuff,
that’s essentially illegal.

Because you got to remember like
uncensored stuff is illegal in Japan.

The erotic anime probably is uncensored.

And that’s illegal in Japan.

So I don’t want to keep
that on my computer.

So I’ll keep it in my Google
Drive where no one can look at it.

But Google probably has spiders and
bots and things searching through it.

So I bet a person– maybe
the bot would report back like a

suspicious thing and then a
person goes in and looks at it.

You agree to that in
your terms and services.

This is just stuff I hadn’t thought of.

So this was very interesting to me.

Because if I was going to keep erotic
material somewhere, it wouldn’t be on my PC.

It would be in the cloud
what I would imagine

to be secure that other
people couldn’t access.

And then I realized, oh shit,
there’s the company could access it.

And they don’t want to get
in trouble for storing child porn

or adult content that’s illegal
like in Japan uncensored porn.

That’s a bad place to keep it.

There was a helpful user on Twitter.

I should start switching over to X.

There’s a company in Florida
called X that is suing Twitter.

And so it’s going to
depend how that rules out

whether or not we end
up calling it X or not.

So this user on X decided to like, just
make sure everyone knows what’s up.

So Google do not use it for storing
your erotic anime and adult content.

Drop box.

Not safe for work material is OK.

It’s a long established company.

So it seems like the good choice.

There is a storage site called
Mega, not safe for work materials OK.

But how long will the company last?

It’s one of those considerations.

Like it’s not a long founded company,

which doesn’t mean it’s
going to last for a long time.

P Cloud is expensive,
but it lasts a long time.

So essentially you buy space on P Cloud.

You can keep it forever.

It’s not safe for work.

He put questionable so their
policy isn’t super clear about

whether you can store not safe
for work material on their servers.

There’s a company called Box.

It’s expensive and you
cannot store not safe for work.

So this was interesting.

So this guy actually did the work.

He’s like, oh, I’m going
to find all the services

where you could
store stuff on the cloud.

And then can you store erotic anime there?

And you have to pay how
long is the service going to last?

How respectable is the service?

And then he said, just a helpful tip.

A helpful tip for our
porn friends out there.

Don’t forget to zip and password
protect your data, which is good advice.

I mean, I’m being really honest.

And again, this is someone who
cares a great deal about their data.

And in a weird way cares about your data.

So of course, zip– he actually
said, double zip and password protect.

And I was like, wow, that is a lot of work.

Because I probably at this stage
wouldn’t be storing stuff online.

I would just find it online.

And then it’s not as
directly connected to me.

Now I’m thinking about how to do it.

You get a VPN so it
doesn’t keep your location.

And you just go on to Reddit or Twitter.

And I mean, let’s face it, the foundation
of those websites is pornography.

You probably don’t think about it.

Like, if you don’t go to Reddit for porn,

you probably don’t realize 50%,
60% of that website is pornography.

And Twitter is the same.

You probably, if you don’t go there
for porn, you don’t see any porn.

But if you start looking
for porn, there’s tons of it.

I would say that’s actually half.

Not a kind of one.

How much of Reddit is pornographic?

Safe for work– Oh, stop it.

Safe for work is 78%
not safe for work is 22%.

So that– OK, that’s a
lot less than I expected.

But it is showing you a significant portion
of that website is actually pornography.

13% of Twitter is pornography.

13% of all tweets–

they can’t monetize those tweets
or a sell or put ads or whatever.

That’s what I mean.

I actually thought those numbers would
be higher, but it’s still significant.

If you creep you creep you person and you
want to keep your creepy, creepy images,

you have to be really
careful about doing

it with, I assume, a
creepy, creepy company.

The new Johnny’s an associate’s
company might be the right place for you.

OK, our last two stories.

They’re kind of– the
stories themselves are

just, again, gross
people doing gross things.

But it was the reasoning that I enjoyed.

Because, again, an
unexpected theme popped up

when I started looking at
the dirty stories this week.

The police knew the tenant.

It was decided on a bus and
he was sitting there so late.

And he brushed his arm past
her and he touched her booby.

And then he’s like, hmm, I’m going to
keep my hand here on this lady’s booby.

And the lady was like,
well, that’s not cool.

So she gets off the bus and
that even he calls the police.

She’s like, this guy touched my booby.

They went on to the bus.

The bus had a camera on
it and they found his face.

They found his train pass.

I see card thing and they could
trace where he was figure out who was.

Lieutenant in the police.

They arrested him, brought him in.

He was requested to resign.

So he was given the initial punishment

of a one-tenth pay cut for three
months, which is fucking nothing.

They didn’t want to fire him.

They requested he resign.

He did resign.

But when he was
arrested, he said, I felt

happy when my arm
touched the woman’s breast.

So I maintained that position.

It’s the– maybe the warped idea
of, well, this is making me happy.

Therefore, it’s OK.

Or this is making me happy.

Therefore, I assume it’s
making her happy because

I’m the most important
person in the world.

I don’t– I would like–
there’s something I want

to drill down into the
minutiae of that mentality.

Of this makes me happy.

Therefore, it’s acceptable.

Or this makes me happy.

Therefore, it’s not a bad thing.

Or this makes me happy.

I like it.

Therefore, they should be OK
with it, even if they don’t like it.

Something like that.

I’m a little torn on what.

I would like a little more explanation.

But I found that to be the weakest
excuse or reason for doing something

because, yeah, there’s lots of
things that would make me feel good.

Make me happy.

But if it doesn’t make the other
person happy, that’s why it’s illegal.

You think a police lieutenant
may understand that.

All right.

So 4am.

It’s 4 o’clock in the morning.

What are you doing?

I’m– I’m never up at 4am.

This is another reason
I’m not going to ever

be like the master
criminal I aspire to be.

Because I think to really
do good crime, you got

to be like a 3, 4, 5am
person, which I’m not.

I would have to like
re-organize my life in a

completely different way
to be a really good criminal.

4am, this guy’s like, what I want
to break into a high school gym.

We did.

Now, the alarm went off the
police arrived and he was arrested.

Turns out this is the
third time he’s been

arrested for breaking
into high school gyms.

The other two times, he stole
some high school girl shoes.

There have been other break-ins
and gyms where shoes have been stolen.

Police are connecting these.

Pretty logically, again,
good detective work.

And they’re trying to see if he’s
done this more than three times.

There’s three times he’s been caught.

But they’re thinking maybe
it’s been more than three times.

He was arrested and they were like,
hey, you’ve been punished for this twice.

Why do you break into high
school gymnasiums and steel shoes?

And he said, because
I like high school girls.

And honestly, I can’t
really argue with his logic.

Have you covered this guy before?

Have you covered this guy before?

It is very possible.

Is this the school desk guy?

No, the school desk guy is different.

This guy, so the school
desk guy, what he wanted

to do was recreate a high
school classroom in his home.

And then he didn’t just buy stuff online.

He wanted authentic high school stuff.

OK, now we all know this
is creepy, creepy stuff.

This is creepy dudes being creepy.

I thought the thing
to did, the high school

recreation in his home, which is
like serial killer level psycho stuff.

He’s in there alone.

So he’s not doing
something in the classroom.

So to me, the terrifying
part of the guy who

wanted to seal the
desk, get them into his

room to create a high
school room is that he

then would have needed
a next step to finalize

whatever his fantasy and his
mind was, which is terrifying.

This guy stealing shoes exclusively.

So I’m going to assume
that he’s taking them

home and satisfying
himself with, again,

I’m going to go ahead and assume the smell
of the shoe is kind of what he’s into.

I may be the touch of the feel.

I don’t know.

I don’t want to get into it.

Ignat’s put into the chat, washing them.

He gets, he just goes
in, watches the shoe,

breaks into the gym
again and puts them back.


That is a criminal I can get
behind somebody who comes

in and just cleans up for
you and then gets away.

His statement, so we
have the police lieutenant

before who said, basically, I was touching
her boob and I liked touching her boob.

Therefore it’s okay.

This guy’s like, I like high school girls.

Why wouldn’t I break into a
gymnasium and steal their shit?

Which is, there’s sort of a mental bit to
this that I think needs to be dealt with.

The fact that the
first guy is a police

lieutenant made that a
little more shocking that

he didn’t understand
sort of the why of the law.

It’s not really about
how he feels about how

the other people feel, but then I
could see like you see this excuse.

It’s when these excuses
come up in tandem that this

guy who you just go straight
up, he’s stealing shoes.

He’s a psycho.

He’s using the exact same reasoning as this
is Luke Tenant, this police lieutenant.

I want to conclusion.

It’s like I want to wrap
up like a sitcom and

have like a lesson
we’ve learned at the end.

Maybe I have to organize it that way.

So we have to learn a lesson.

The lesson we learn
from these two, maybe

creepy guys, is because
I like it or I want it.

That’s not enough to make it okay.


I’m kind of like little
chime to help you

know you realized
you’ve learned a lesson or

maybe the audience goes, “Ugh,
we’ve all learned a lesson together.”

Depressing topics to cheer you up

Corona, climate change, misogeny, we got it all, baby. It was probably sexist for me to add “baby” to the end of that, but I need to be me.

Oh, and there is some more of me complaining about old people, despite being old myself.

Go to just stay home

I make one of the few corrections I will ever make in this episode. Not because I don’t make mistakes, but because I refuse to admit I made mistakes, but since I found my own mistake, damn it is hard to argue with myself.

The Japanese government pushes forward with a series of bad ideas and starts pretending everything is going to be fine. Some people got scammed and someone needed to be a little quieter about their mary jane operation.
