  1. Just switch off the Internet as I explained above. Why going to so much trouble with cookies and other stuff when it is so easy?
  2. I can read the Japan Times in my mobile using Firefox with the steps below. Haven't tried in a PC or in another browser. 1 - Open the link as normal. 2 - Switch off the Internet of your phone as soon as the page loads and before the login pop up shows up. 3 - Read the article. Note: After about 10 seconds you can switch the Internet back on and the pop up won't show (at least for me), but it will show up if you move to a different page.

    Yoshikaze situation

    There is plenty of information on the topic about his intai here in the forum.

    He looks miserable in that photo. I would look too if i was living in a doll house.
  5. Don't understand the problem of one of the Nayas using the shikona "Taiho". Wouldn't Taiho be proud and wanted one of his grandchildren to use his name? Don't know if he was ever questioned this before he passed. As per Hakuho, the same. If his son ever shows interest in joining sumo and reaches Juryu, wouldn't he want his son to use it?

    Non-K-November basho 2020 Discussion (spoiler space)

    Terunofuji has now lost 3 yusho playoffs in the top division, addind to 2 more in lower divisions. Although he won 1 in Juryu he must now have nightmares about playoffs. Wondering how that will affect him in future playoffs.

    Names, shikonas and haircuts in Sandamne

    Once the air is long enough to allow it. It's not related with ranking. Just hair size. Once they reach Juryu, then they will use a different style. Some will reach makuushi without a mage, like it happen with Ichinojo, as his hair was still not long enough.

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    How does it work if he retires before geting citizenship? Does he have to leave the sumo association or he can stay with a different status until he becomes japanese? Also, i'm not sure about it, but believe you can leave after you retire and then come back, correct? (Think thats what Musashigawa did)

    Those Musashimaru's sections, are they part of a larger interview with him that is going to be shown at a later stage or was that it?

    Top 10 Sumo Records July 2020

    Aminishiki is the closest i can get to a "bingo" with only 4 ranks missing. Others in the top 10 basho appearences have more missing. Maybe someone with less basho is more accurate and has a full bingo.

    Top 10 Sumo Records July 2020

    Sorry if this looks more as a trivia question than belonging on this tread, but is there a record for the rikishi that has had more ranks in makuushi? i.e. a rikishi that has been M1E, M1W, M2E, M2W, etc
