Peacetrain, THANKS! Just realized I need to renew mine as well,,, I avoid the police as if I was a criminal. They have been trained to be suspicious of foreigners unfortunately.

"Takei, who is unemployed, was quoted by police as saying that he needed money and that he was dissatisfied with society."
I think almost 60% of Japan is unemployed if you consider retired, children, college students, housewives, etc.

This is the most horrible awful thing that could happen to a parent. Anaesthesia is very dangerous and the doctors should be taken out and shotte. My cousin had a surgery at 27 and improper anaesthesia left him suffocating to death in the surgery. Terrible.

Osaka is better than Tokyo hands down. Why? Cheaper and better housing, less crowded commute, much better food, hotter women, close to Kyoto, say again close to Kyoto, Kobe nearby, KIX is great airport, nice people with funny slang.

2. Good hygiene and shave armpits fer sure
3. Holds door for me and other pleasantries
4. Doesn't complain about me and think I need a personal critic on this Earth
5. Has the understanding that money does not grow on trees and does not invest in bitcoins

The dollar is backed by the full faith and credit of the US, which means the largest military force the world has ever had including thousands of nuclear weapons. That is about as good as it gets for a fiat currency. Until that situation changes the dollar will never fall though it may lose value to lessen the impact of profligate government spending and debt. The bitcoin is backed by pimply faced hackers, and that is about as bad as it gets. Comprende?

You may be right Thon Taddeo, but I think a lot of the appeal of bitcoins is anonymity and I think the government is going to try to limit that,,, you can't send more than 10 grand outside JP without filling out enough paperwork to file a federal case.
Also, the bitcoin enthusiasts are a lot less enthusiastic now that the major storage centers seem to have more security holes than a sieve. Good luck!
RecklessMar. 05, 2014 - 03:20PM JST
@davestrousers "Well, its good if that value of what you're holding is going up. Which bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies will. "
You may be right but if history is any guide bitcoins will be treated like the financial product that they are and soon regulated by the SEC and other regulatory bodies such as banking authorities to prevent illicit fund transfers to fund drugs or weapons, etc. (use your imagination). This may ultimately be good for users, but it means anonymity will be lost probably and taxes will follow.

@Robert "lo chorizo" E "i'm just glad i shifted the wealth i stored in a few dozen bitcoins a while ago to a fixed-rate hostess swiss roll fund. i tend to always be ahead of the curve."
I am with you. Must get out of imaginery money. I personally have invested in the secret recipe for hostess pink snowballs, and have begun stockpiling them in a secret bunker for the apocalypse. I will be eating pink snowballs from here to eternity, a kind of heaven, hey hey hey!
