What is good about this news is that, the prankster has succeeded in damaging a greedy pharama company and at the same time able to make a very powerful hit to mElon Musk.

@to all who for some reason think that Japan is the only country in the world leading teen suicide and suicide overall.

First of all, I am not denying that Japan has a high rate of suicide. I am saying that that image that many still hold almost religiously, that Japan is the suicide leading country is wrong and outdated (the first link demostrate it clearly).

Second, the suicide rate of teen in average is high in EVERY country, because teens are suceptible to suffer from that.

The US suicide rate of teens is still high (not like Japan of Sout Korea) but it reaches 14%.

https://www.nippon.com/en/japan-data/h00857/

Also, a consideration has to be made regarding how the US defines suicide for the cases of teen with guns, and how many Latin american countries count and consider suicide (being the influence of catholic religion a big thing).

Third, I wonder why you so eagerly want to put Japan in first place for suicide, to the point of ignoring data, and why attack people that suggest to revise your views.

Lastly, as I person who suffers from clinical cronic depression and have in the past 2 unsuccesfful attempts of suicide (if i were succeful in taking my life, the statistics would not have been in Japan but elsewhre), I think I am able to see thing in another light. I live in Japan currently, and just last year a had one of my hardest episodes of depression of my entire life... I got to the point of thinking that I did not need to live anymore.. but my wife, friends and doctor (all of them Japanese by the way) help me to reconsider.

The cause, was not in fact the "evil" Japanese society... but in fact due to power harrasment and psycological, social and laboral abuse from a couple of people from a non japanese (non Asian) country.

@tora

And the way suicides are classified as such is the same from country to country? Me thinks not.

Huh? how on hell can "suicide" be classified?? so it is voluntary suicide, involuntary suicide, accidental suicide, chemical suicide, magical suicide??

Suicide " the act or an instance of taking one's own life voluntarily and intentionally",

What other type of suicide is there??

No doubt that Japan needs to have enough fire power to defend itself and its interests, but that and having nukes are two very distinct things.

@Eugene

I said it before and I'll say it again, suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

From a third person point of view, yes it sure seems like that.

But from the point of view of the person who is suffering or having that types of thoughts, the situation and the logic that you are trying to apply may not be valid.

Not everyone have the same brain connections nor perseption.

Please considere that, that type of comments may be as hurtful to the person suffering as any bullying.

@Spitfire

Yes it is a problem... but suprisingly Japan is not the country wiht more suicides in the World, is not even in the top 10. So perhaps the image of "Japanese society makes you wanna die" type of narrative is wrong and old?

sooo recap....

Musk make fuss that he will buy twitter paying 44 billions

Then, Musk noticed that Twitter was not such a good deal (wonder why Musk being so smart and business saavy didn't got that information sooner....), so he back off his own deal.

Twitter said, "you said you are goinna buy it, then buy it", Musk say "nay".... Twitter said "to the court"....

Musk and Twitter talking at the court... the court said "this Musky deal seems to be binding"...

Musk then said to himself (or pehaps a higher mind??) "oh shcuks, I think i have to buy it before this get more costely"... so he bought.

...But... Musk did not have enough cash to he had to sell a coupe of his golden shares (Tesla) to cover part of the 44 billions (bad time to sell shares, considering their prices are very low at the moment)...

Musk said "I sell share 'cause Twitte money does not make"... in a big pompous way..

... But then we say, "we all knew Twitter did not make money, some time ago... why genious Musk did not know that?"....

Musk say: "i am here to save da day, cost 8 dallars to have a blue jay",

but we say : "Twitter never charge for a jay, though that machination must have surface on an early day. Surely, a smart man will have other roads for salvation, since he has rockets, cars, robots and excavations"

Musk say: "oh I know, half the staff go away, the other half will work am to pm eyday. Blue ticks will cost 8 dollars, gray ticks are not my thing, go away you schemer of the gray !!!"

Musk say : "Twitter will be like its chief. So Twitter be as Twedle dum"

@Painkiller

The thing is that many people (and in some way myself too) have a not very well defined concept of "freedom of speech"... or "freedom" in general.

My concept of freedom (and I hope it to be close to what ideally shoudl be) is that, freedom have limits that are defined by the freedom of others. "my freedom ends where your freedom begins"

But I feel that many, have the idea that freedom is limitless, where my freedom goes over your freedom...

Posted in: Defectors seek alternatives to Musk-owned Twitter See in context

The origin with the dislike with Musk, is that he has had a very well recorded hystory of being an opportunistic and selfish person that make promisses but does not honored them.

In May this year (at the begining of his Twitter buyout scheme), he cleary stated that he was a "free speech supremasist" and noone will be banned, EVERYONE will be able to twitt what they will... He even reiterated that a couple of weeks ago... But then, just a few days back, he banned for life several people, under the reason that they violated the new guide lines of twitter.. one of which was that "parody accounts has to clearly stated that they are so".... many banned parody accounts where following those guidelines but still they got banned, reason? because, Elon "Perinum" Musk.

This is just the latest example of why people does not like Musk...

@AgentX

As you well know, that's the first step that never gets taken in Japan. It's an unfortunate paralysis.

Sadly yes.... I was sincerely shocked when a Kohai (like 5 years younger than me), made a friend and colleague of mine to quit the company, because "It is a man's job... and my wife should be at home"...

I almost punch him, when I heard this if it not were for my friend herself that stopped me (it was during a nomikai).

The other shocking thing was that she oblige to what he was saying....

Not surprisingly, I was not invited to the wedding and she was banned to contact me by any means....

@papigiullo

Just because a law or a norm does not stipulate any kind of penalty or punishment does not mean the law is BS.

The mere existence of the law ables the people and the authorities to take actions (like the present case).

It is sad that a law like this should have to be made... in a ideal society it should be a matter of commons sense and respect enough to prevent these kind of hate speech and other stuff like this

Posted in: 'Pregnancy rotas' add to working women's woes in Japan See in context

The problem is... there is soo many old timers and/or people with a ancient way of thinking in most Japanese companies (and in many non-Japanese companies too).

But the most concerning problem, is the lack of interest and help from colleagues of both genders.

I was actively involved in ways to improve and facilitate the working environment specially for women, at my former job, but the real lack of commitment and interest for my workplace colleagues made any effort null.... At the end I was seen like I used the workplace Seminars, workshops and talks as ways to skip out of work.

Many of my friends (women) either had to find another job (2 people) or had to simply quit (like 5 of them), it really made me feel useless.

So, basically I am saying, people in the workplace has to speak up and be involved...
