My office is near the stock exchange and many outside signs show stock market fall. Many tv crews are taking pictures all around Nihombashi, maybe I am on tv!

the guys in my office, particularly over 40 JP males are glued to their seats, even a lunch break is a dash to eat and get back then reapply the glue and sit facing each other. thankfully they do not apply the glue to me. i doubt the above will work except for the newer generation and only if they start their own company or work at a foreign company.

@SenseNotSoCommon, I think the Brits are looking forward, they just want to control their own destiny.

I say tax bullets at ten dollars a bullet, that should calm things down. Most criminal types are not capable of making bullets.

@keitai, you make good points, but smoking is a nuisance to others, a health hazard, and dangerous to children if you inadvertantly burn them when you are reading your iPhone jamming away on music while walking down the street flailing your arm around holding the cigarette. In restaurants it is even worse because you smokers cause health risk to the workers who are stuck in their for 8 plus hour shifts, Ghosh bless the poor folks that work at the typical smoky coffee shop. Finally, you smokers completely ruin my lunch or dinner with your nasty smoke. I understand your sense of smell and taste buds are already deadened but mine are not and I pay good money to taste my food without added carcinogens. Thanks.

ouch! that's got to hurt,,,, of course the obvious point is a place like Singapore will be able to draw international talent for a world class education, and based on everything I have ever heard from those gaijin professors in Japan, there is absolutely no desire to import world class gaijin professors or researchers and give them tenure, and if they speak Japanese that hardly matters... expect the trend to continue,,,

I am from Florida and know that gators hunt at the water's edge, and I have seen them on many occasions in lakes and rivers, however, I would never expect that I would be in danger at a Disney resort near the water as one would assume that such obvious dangers would be handled and thoroughly mitigated. A true tragedy and loss of a wonderful life for the young boy.

@sangetsu03, things would have been a lot worse if governments had not stepped up and spent like crazy. As others more learned than me in economics may point out, the government debt can be monetized and amount to an inflation tax in the future. I was especially convinced that governments are doing the right thing by spending via government debt when it was pointed out to me that 1930's Germany went through hyperinflation but did not become politically extremist, but when the hyperinflation was countered by money tightening and deflation, the support for the Nazis dramatically increased.

I get most of my work clothes from Eddie Bauer, and everything else from Uniqlo and GAP. Uniqlo is great but needs better work casual chinos and fitted dress shirts. The XL, L, M, S for non-iron shirts is less than ideal.
