Calm down!

The death rate is low in Japan, only around 50 per day, it's like 800 a day in the US.

I bet money it never gets to high either.

It's kind of a negative feedback loop with things just getting worse and people less likely to have children.

The thing is, people in poor countries have so much less and are somehow able to have children, the world belongs to their children.

Families in the 1950's and 1960's managed to have big families. There's no way it was easier for them or cheaper. They worked hard for it all.

People are just lazy these days. Women wants kids but needs Mary Poppins to look after them as it's too hard work.

Does Japan really need a huge population? I mean it's a small island with limited resources that suffers a lot of natural disasters. As someone has mentioned, it's probably a good thing that the population declines.

Only thing about postponing is that it will cost the tax payer.

Posted in: Mother arrested over death of 4-year-old daughter See in context

It's completely self inflicted pressure though isn't it? How difficult can it be just to sit the child Infront of the TV? Or give it a tablet to pay with? My wife gets so upset when she can't make our daughter do what the internet says she should be able to do.

Posted in: M6.9 quake hits northeastern Japan See in context

Japan exists because those plates are colliding with each other, pushing up and creating beautiful mountains, hot springs and unfortunately earthquakes. Earthquakes are part of Japan as much as anything else.

Stay safe the best you can.

Do the 80% that want it cancelled still want to pay for it either way? Could be $30B... I suppose it's not that bad, hosting the US military costs $20B post year. Just cancel and print some more yen.
