Posted in: Few Japanese benefit from living their 'Shanghai dream' See in context

"Time spent as a temporary worker in japan or anywhere is just wasted time unless it leads to a good secure permanent job or you start your own company."

Security is an illusion. People, who seek security, are actually furthest away from it.

"Regardless of Japanese language skills, these lucky foreigners in Japan rarely become managers and get stuck doing English-language related work forever. Most leave for foreign companies or leave the country. The Japanese dream rarely lasts for those wishing to progress their careers."

Nobody ever becomes rich, or gets ahead in life working for other people.

There are 3 kinds of ppl in this world:

=> Those who make things happen. => Those who watch things happen. => And those who wonder, "what's happening?"

This is awesome... Give before you take... Good business practice... But on the receiving end, I would hold back from ever getting anything for free (that is not a gift from family/relative), or cheapen myself by not paying the full price and always buying things on sale.

"I just dont like it when Asian girls bleach thier hair blonde. Asian girls are already very beautiful. They dont need to do that."

I highly agree. Asian girls, who bleach their hair a shade of brown is okay, as "black" hair is supposed to be really dark brown anyways. But blonde? That like pretending to be Caucasian... so fake!

Hmmm, these folks never heard of banks? Just out of curiosity, are bank deposits in Japan even insured by the government, like in North America? Anyways, money doesn't always buy happiness, but it can sure take happiness away from you, like when you get into debt...

Thing with dressing so pretty is, someone else is bound to outdo. When that happens, then what?

This guy's got no girlfriends... Hence, the need to be flashy to attract attention. However, he isn't the player-type either... He's probably doing it just for the sake of doing it and enjoying life. Hence, this is why this picture is A-OK in my book!

A bee! Wow! You gotta hand it to J.T.!! Now, I know exactly what Peter Parker does for a living, when there's no villain fights to capture on film! Seriously, I wonder how much commission this photo generated for the artist...?

Asians tend to look young. You can usually tell their age by the wrinkles around their eyes, especially at the corner of their eyes when they smile.

If I didn't know his name, I wouldn't be able to tell if he is Japanese, or Chinese, or Filipino... Some people from these Asian areas look that similar!

Posted in: Microsoft adds shortcuts, security to new browser See in context

Oh, I forget, with the Opera "notepad", all changes are immediately auto-saved, meaning you don't have to save anything to any file. The browser remembers what you stored in the notepad, even 0.1 millisecond after your last "notepad" entry your computer crashes. Now, that is convenience.

Posted in: Microsoft adds shortcuts, security to new browser See in context

In so far as web browsers go, Opera rules!

Here's why:

=> You can take notes. Very often, you want to cut and paste something from a web page. The Opera "notepad" opens in a tab inside the browser. Can you do this with IE? It's very cumbersome to have to open Windows notepad, just to take notes, and then forget where you stored them.

=> In Opera, you can view all your simultaneously downloads in one tab, pause, and resume with the file transfers manager. When you're downloading more than one file simultaneously in IE, it's very annoying to have to scroll thru the download windows to check if your downloads have finished.

=> The toolbar. Folks, I have an icon to each of my most frequently visited site on a single line of the Opera toolbar. All the web sites that I frequent are one click away. There are about 25 favicons on my toolbar right now, and it's compact, and not even cluttering the browser. In IE, you'd have to click on Favorites (that's one click), click on any subfolder under favorites (that's two clicks), and find what you're looking for (that totals three clicks).

=> Opera speed dials. In case you want to quickly bookmark a web site, you just drag it onto a speed dial, which has a thumbnail preview, so you won't forget what the web site is about later on. Google Chrome tried to rip off this idea via 9 most visited web sites. But this defeats the idea that you can't choose the contents of the "speed dials" in Google Chrome.

=> Security. I stopped using IE as my main browser along time ago, during an age where I would get malicious software installed on my computer just from visiting a web site with IE.

Lol with $100-$200 more, you could get a deccent travel laptop that doubles as an ebook reader. Why anyone would spend money on an e-book reader is beyond me...

Lol... Good for the parlor! They needed to have this lesson! This is how you properly collect money from any kind of machines: Hire two armed police officers to stand on guard while you collect the money!

Btw, people who succumb to peer pressure, like smoking and drinking, are not all that sexy to women.

Seems similar to a story I heard about a kid, who drank more booze than he could handle on his birthday, and was found dead the next day in a bathtub.

Posted in: Start of the 'not so great' Depression See in context

If you believe in all the conspiracy theory about the elite having engineered the Great Depression, and this one, you'll scratch your head and wonder why. It probably has to do with this saying, "it's not enough that I [the elite] succeed, everyone else must fail." That is probably the reason why they engineered the credit bubble of the past and this one. It's human nature, I guess.

If you think 2008 was bad... In 2008, the Dow Jones Industrial Average went from 14,200 points to 7,450 points (lowest), which is a 50% drop. Let's assume that this "recession" is similar to the 2000-2003 recession that saw the NASDAQ drop by as much as 75%, it would mean ANOTHER 50% drop in the stock market to around 3,700 points (75% from the peak) either this year, or the next. So, if you thought the 2008 slide was bad, we're gonna have another one just as bad this year, percentage-wise.

Very true. I don't see any sort of economic recovery until late 2010.
