A lot of the anti-nuclear hysteria in Japan is unfounded but people are right to not believe the Abe government or Tepco. They’ve shown that they can’t properly regulate nuclear energy. Tepco executives should be in jail for their negligence. Bring in outside scientists for these evaluations.

The problem being that they'd be painting someone as an addict even though she had no drugs in her system, even after a night of partying. There isn't anything in particular to indicate that she had any addiction, nor that she was anything more than a recreational user
That doesn’t really matter to the police or the media, though. Remember the story about the rugby player caught with cocaine? According to the media and police, he was clearly an addict because he admitted to doing cocaine once a month. ONCE A MONTH. I don’t care what the substance is, if you only do it once a month you’re not addicted. When it comes to drugs, the authorities and media in Japan are so distanced from reality it’s really pretty frightening.

So smart one what would you do instead? It is easy to disagree with everything and everyone but coming up with a solution that works and tat others agree is a challenge.
Uh, quit contributing to making the places the immigrants are coming from horrible places they want to leave? Quit funding death squads because they’re “fighting communism”? That would be a good start. Basically just leaving the area alone would probably do wonders.

My general policy is that unless I’m expecting someone or something, I don’t answer the door. It’s never a neighbor stopping by unannounced, it’s always someone selling something or NHK. If it is something important, they will leave a note.

Yamamoto was aware of and impressed by theindustrial might of the US. What on earth did he think would happen?
Iirc Yamamoto knew exactly what would happen but was ordered to do it anyway. He knew that if they made the attack on Pearl Harbor it would give the Japanese about a year to do whatever they wanted in the Pacific and Asia. After that the proverbial s would hit the fan and they were bound to lose. It was a classic case of “The boss wants to do this stupid thing, shouganai.”

Welp, looks like the secret is out among younger Japanese people. Marijuana isn’t the super dangerous drug they were taught. As pointed out by other posters, alcohol is worse for you. It’s easier to just repeat what you were taught in middle school than critically think about it and do research, though. All while sipping on a 9% chuhai of course!

My favorite thing about Yamaguchi is that he’s clearly a lizard person but doesn’t seem to care to get a convincing mask.

I think she was a bit confused. The phrase is "drowning in debt" not "drowning by debtor"!
