Don't get me wrong, I believe he is right; but I also know that westerners won't listen to him, at all.

I am sure westerners will understand!

Because Japan was never a member of the original "nazist axis" and got nothing to do with nazism... oh wait a minute..

"Dartora Taniuti" is a Timorese name, but not a Brazilian name, while "Leonel Maia" is a Brazilian name and not Timorese.

I'm pretty sure in this article you have by accident switched their names and nationality.

This is how you say "-Thank you for everything you've done! Now our corporation is healthy again, thanks to you, and to take back control of our assets we must kick you out swiftly; we're sure you do understand. Good luck, we assume from here, bye bye!"

If it can't break, turn around, and "fluctuate" mid-air, then it isn't a car; it's just another airplane.

Look how beautiful we are citizens of this planet; apparently in 40 years we have killed 60% of wildlife on Earth, and some people manage to say "there's no problem with this"!

Posted in: Trump says Japan treats U.S. unfairly on trade by not taking more American cars See in context

I'm not into cars, but around me I see general consensus of "American cars drink too much fuel", so most people I know avoid them due to that spread popular opinion.

Posted in: Japan's youth suicides hit 30-year high See in context

Suicide isn't a "national crisis".

Among youths 13 to 29, it's a global epidemic. And it's directly connected to the way capitalist societies work.

However in Japan and South Korea the issue is a red-alert; to keep things in perspective: my country has almost double Japanese population yet suicide rate in Japan is 214% higher.

Combine that with low birth rates (Japan will lose 6 million nationals between 2019 ~ 2030) plus anti-immigration policy then you get the picture.

Posted in: 51.3% in Japan support bill to accept more foreign workers: poll See in context

The refugees crisis in Europe is completely different from regulated immigration.

As long incoming foreigners are job placed and have no criminal records where they come from, there's zero reason to fear them.

Japan is a rich country, the rich need the poor to do menial work, that's how the world is. Modern Japan is faded to support more and more English speakers in the future.

Send a few jets to explode the rocks... Problem solved.

Oh I forgot, politicians don't want problems to be solved, otherwise societies won't need them.

Posted in: In major policy shift, gov't OKs draft bill to open door wider for foreign workers See in context

For decades Japanese companies have imported Japanese descendants to work in factories for low wages.

What they want now is ability to "import anyone" regardless of race.

There's a large number of people in India, China and Philippines living on wages below $300USD a month... The intention is to import those people and pay them $600USD/month and they might come by looking at raw numbers.

What those people don't is that average cost of living in Japan is at least $2,100 USD/month and unless they live like slaves they won't any money to bring back home after 5 years of heavy work.

In other words, this is a bad deal for the foreigners and a bargain to Japanese companies.

Posted in: Facebook discloses security breach affecting 50 million users See in context

Been programming computers since I was 14.

I find it cute when you tell me to "get educated".

Facebook will only sell the information you opted to provide yourself. There's no mechanisms whatsoever to "steal" anything from you. The problem, the real problem, are people with a "show-off" mentality exposing every single details about their private life, can't really blame a marketing network to exploit general public stupidity.

It's absurdly simple to keep private life private whilst keep using marketing networks disguised as "social media". Btw AdBlock software is very easy to install and configure.

In current reality Japan is still a American State and there's little that can be done about it without surrendering to China's influence. US will not let it go easily by the way.

I expect such technology to be implemented on every model by every car manufacturer, enforced by law.

This is a very important mechanism, children should never die again from cars leaving a parking lot.

Posted in: Life on Mars: Japanese astronaut dreams after lake discovery See in context


We are here just for a fraction of Universe's existence. Maybe "right now" we might be the only ones, but there's billions years behind us and at least 2 trillion years to after Planet Earth plus earthlings are long gone. Until the last star alive fades out and eternal darkness happens (in about 2.1 trillion years) life can happen again anywhere... "like popcorn".

@Andrew Topolski

Sorry, but you're wrong.

Quantum Computers already exist and are fully functional.

Every functional job will eventually be replaced, it's just a matter of how many decades or centuries from now.

People from the future either become AI programmers or establish their own business to avoid being replaced.
