Bringing up Alfred Hitchcock was an excellent argument against gratuitous violence. I know I personally can't stand to watch graphic violence, but I hold a strange sort of fascination with Hitchcock productions.

Fantastic news for the allergy-plagued people like myself!

I'm not about to comment on the warped view of needs that leads to such a place, but is there no vaguely sexual motivation that is not capitalized on in Japan? If the novelty of this fails to wear off, and people continue spending money to earn temporary social privileges... I may have found a new thing to despair about.

That's "has the will." Whoops.

I'd say these defeatist jabs at the male psyche have more to do with number 5 than 1 or 2. Can you get a man to truly have "eyes for only you?" I doubt it. I'll agree that men subconsciously, and sometimes openly enjoy looking for opportunity. But I refuse to believe that there exists no man who lacks the will to resist such temptations, so long as he convince himself that he cares about this partner.

@almxx Don't fret now, there's no need for philosophy to butt into microbiology, here. DNA, and how DNA influences cell division, possesses no concrete determinism-- unless you think it was destiny for you to become a human, and not a frog.

Pardon, replace "thinking" with "think."

Haha! Amusing, but an unrealistic estimation, I'd wager. I assume somebody's considered it already, but did anyone thinking about resource and living space limitations? The way I see it, by the time the next economic boom begins (assuming there's enough young people to find a niche to start it), there should be enough room for births to bounce back. "Nature will find a way."

Where's Braddock Washington from Fitzgerald's "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz?" Yes, it's a short story, and yes, he destroys the source of his wealth, but the amount of radium the Washingtons had tucked away should have been worth a great deal of money.

I can't imagine pigeonholing men into various types helps form good relationships at all. I can easily imagine a woman carelessly picking her type, and thus avoiding what could potentially be a caring, perhaps lifelong partnership. Furthermore, in an attempt to get into a relationship, a man could attempt to contain his true character to fit into one of these niches, and does that ever work out in the long run?

Now, I generally hesitate to say things that would prompt responses of "get your mind out of the gutter," nor do I know how popular this is in Japan, but should this come to Japan, isn't the name "TINTIN" a bit iffy?
