great comments everyone.

But I think the problem isn't shyness. It's being shy for people who are not naturally inclined to by shy.

Being shy is not a bad thing. I'm shy to an extent, it's just my personality. I don't have depression and I go out every once in a while with friends and go drinking.

However, if you are not naturally a shy person but keep things inside to keep that image of being shy. That's where it gets unhealthy.

"But it is only the transfer of money between already relatively wealthy people"

The makers of the phone are not all millionaires i bet. I bet there are some non-wealthy people putting together these phones, and I bet they get a salary for doing their jobs.

It's OK to buy ridiculous expensive things people!

That money isn't just thrown away. It's used by the makers which with they buy crap and then the money goes around and around. It's a transfer of money not the destruction of it.

Rule #1: never smile, you are above everyone else and have no need to smile. You are… perfect beings! There is no need to appease the onlookers, for you are Models.

all religions resist change (and stick to traditional values) because religions are founded on belief and not on proof or investigation

Posted in: Should JAL be saved? See in context

I wish the gov't would send a contract to each taxpayer, asking each person if the gov't could buy a company with a portion of their money. And if it didn't go well, well then the gov't would have to tax that person more to make up for the losses. And if it went well, then the taxpayer would pay less money. I wonder how many people would sign that contract...

government doesn’t care about profits because the only money it's in fear of losing is the taxpayer's. Gov't business is an oxymoron

Posted in: Some wonder if Japan's new leaders have economic vision See in context

"Aizawa and other free-market advocates worried that the party may step away from deregulating the economy"

hmm? A free mark advocate is worried about deregulation? Usually free market people are all about deregulation

also "If we look at the subject of money, we see that wether it is fiat currency or gold, it all has one common feature: it is scarce."

how is fiat currency scarce? The central banks are constantly printing out money. Its not scarce for the central banks ufortunately

no one is going to read the bill because itll be 1000+ pages long. and just like when the bailout bill was finished. the repubs will have just a few hours to go over the bill before voting begins
