"Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration"
Then why aren't you a professional athlete or successful business owner making millions of $ ?

"you can get better, to an extent, with practice. Fundamentally, though, your abilities are determined by the talents you’ve been born with"
I agree but that's true with anything really, music, sports, acting and running a business etc

"Who cares, the way gas prices are going the cost savings will be paltry for the average driver."
Some people care about what they call the environment.
I never understand those people who buy gas-guzzlers just because gas is cheap.
Do you also buy 200 tooth pastes just because they are cheap ?

Even one suicide is too many but any progress is great news You don't go from 26,000 to 0 in one year, let's hope it will continue next year as well.
Forget the typical posters who manage to find anything negative to say in any article. Population went down by 0.2% and suicides went down by 7% and you think you are so clever to associate the two ?

Why not ?
The Olympics have so many sports, so many of them way more minor than Karate, like BMX\ or speed walking etc.
Karate is definitely more popular than them

"i very much doubt that their figures are accurate. If they were the industry would be using their sources to try and stop this loss of revenue, no?"
No. Most people who download music and movies illegally do so because it's free. There was an American girl who got into trouble for downloading more than 2,000 songs illegally. Do you think she would have paid for all of them ?
So they are not losing as much revenue as the illegal downloads

"You have to teach Japanese consumers about your products because they are very ignorant"
One of the most ridiculous advise anyone can give to anybody. You don't tell customers what to buy, you come up with products that customers want. That's exactly why companies like American Big 3, Wallmart and Carrefour has failed in Japan. Funny you call Japanese consumers ignorant since that's exactly what you are

When you pay $12-$15 to see a movie, some of the money go to the movie theaters not just the studio.
When it's VOD, almost all goes to the studio, minus the credit card fees but that also applies when you see it at a movie theater.

"Been here long enough to know that this doesn`t speak for all. And they are still ignorant of other places."
You don't speak for all either and you are as ignorant as they are.

”Best seller in Japan? Most homes I've been into here are jam packed with clutter”
That's exactly why this book is popular. If every house in Japan was clean and organized then nobody would be buying this book, duh
