I have no problem with them doing this; as long as the water is first tested by a team of reputable, global scientists.

The infantilization of Japanese society is one of the biggest cons for me about living in Japan.

This. So much. My company has freakin' bells for lunch and breaks, just like at school. Utterly ridiculous.

Still teaching English?

I was at NOVA back in 2007(?) when things went south. We were told that our salaries were late due to a "computer glitch". I handed in my resignation three days later and found a new job.

And who in Japan (besides the homeless) can live off a 100,000JYP per month pension?

Huh? With the mortgage paid off, that's easy to live off!

I can't ever imagine lining up to eat something as mundane as ramen or soba. Why do people do it? Stuff tastes the same wherever you eat it, surely?
