I read the movie just borrows the concept of Death Note. Makes sense to me, the book could be dropped off anywhere on earth and it will have different stories

Some parents can't fathom the idea that "letting kids play/read/whatever, keeping track of time, telling them when to stop" is all part of the training to make the kids more responsible and aware about scheduling their time

I lived in Singapore for 3 years, lunches were SGD$5 for three side dishes, less than 500yen!! Rent was 100K yen, 10 minutes walk from Outram Park train station, right in the middle of "tourist" area. It's hardly the most "expensive" city. Tokyo is a little bit more expensive than Singapore, but really not that much different.

Isn't well known that Japanese language school is a system abused by all the parties ? The foreign students coming here using "study" as excuse and becoming illegal when visa expired, companies for cheap labors, the school getting some money, and the government getting taxes. It's a "pool" no one in politics nor industry are willing to stir.

Those who are offended being called "hafu" also contribute to this meaningless brouhaha. Like "gaijin", the Japanese never intended it as a derogatory word, but hater-gaijins just take it as "offensive".

Hey orange, do you know how Florida can produce so much of you, so cheap that everyone can eat an orange everyday and there are still left overs for exports ? It's because they can afford machines to help them, whose parts are made all over the world, including America, thanks to globalization and trade.
Now with your protectionism pet project, those machines will become more expensive to maintain because parts break, then oranges will become more expensive, and Americans and Japanese alike will buy less of your oranges. Your orange producers make less money, they use machines less often, replace parts less often, your parts producers make less money, they layoff some people, those people buy less orange, your orange producers make even less money, and so on, and so on.
Do you understand this elementary concept of economy ?

I'm for free education for everyone, even if they raise taxes by 100%, I don't want my kids to live in a society of stupids.

So, they ignored all those protests about Japan reducing "pacifism" from its constitution, but a few miserable people who don't like children are "heard" ? Something is wrong ...

Personally, falling prices is not why I don't make purchases, I don't hold off buying food because prices will come down next month. I don't buy stuffs because I know the economy will crash, I will lose my job, and when it happens, I make sure I have a sizable amount of money to keep me and my family fed until the next boom starts.
if you need to learn something BOJ, learn this. It's not the "falling prices", it's people's outlook for the future that affects the economy.

Posted in: Many people think investing is risky, but those risks can be eased if you diversify your investments or invest multiple times rather than all at once. I hope people will start thinking immediately about how to prepare for their future.

This orange doesn't even realized he's been president for a few weeks now, cause he's still rambling about how big he "won" the electoral. It's like getting a boyfriend and he can't stop rambling about how much he sacrificed for you and you should appreciate him more ... what a total douche
