And yet, novel books from non-elite Hollywood stars have very few buyers. They go unnoticed without millions of dollars in ads or sponsorship.

Ulysses, et al:

The onus should be on the companies that do the booking and assigning points. They did not steal the points, they were given them - they were taking advantage of a loophole that the company left open. We've all had to cancel reservations before, this shouldn't be a crime. Civil matter (lawsuit by the company) at the most. This invites private companies with strong pulls of govt to entice prosecutors to arrest former customers.

This sounds like a civil matter (lawsuit), not a crime. Swearing is also a crime in some areas. Maybe we should enforce that too.

Jessielee:

Have workers show up in whatever they want, including flipflops

It's not uniforms or lack thereof that makes for better work. In fact,some of the better jobs I had involved a uniform (when our team got our work done, we went home - even if just 3 hours [we were salaried]). And flip-flops? I dont want japan to walmartify like america has (pyjamas to school, tattoos all up the wazoo, and having to turn away when someone bends down). One can be professional and relaxed, and not look like they just finished a season of Survivor (dirty half unbuttoned shirt, tattered shorts, etc).

No one suggests yet that phones should be treated like alcohol and tobacco (must 18+ to own or use without parental supervision)?

Girlintokyo:

I'm sure most of us agree that this is wrong. Some are saying the punishment should be more reciprocal. For example, back in the day instead of arresting a child for smoking, the parents would force them to smoke a whole pack until they puked. The kids that take pix up skirts should be reciprocated in many opinions (they should wear skirt and be photoed). Jails, IMHO, should be reserved for kidnappers (those who jail) and murderers (awaiting appeal or death sentence). Rpe is a bit trickier for some. If we sentence them the same way a murderer is, it entices them to just go all the way and kill the victim. Perhaps rpists should be rped.

have [the boys involved] wear skirts and let the girls film under them and post all over.

Best punishment that fits the crime. How best to teach the golden rule than by actually doing it?

it will instruct all students on the proper usage of smartphones at school.

How about not bringing phones to school and if seen or random bag search, are confiscated. Parents would have to come and pay ¥1500 to get back for every offence (or scaled 1st offence ¥1500, 2nd ¥3000, etc).

I have an issue with the specieist service dog label. Service animals can be anything: cats, dogs, rabbits, etc. Some places actually discriminate and dont allow service animals except dogs.

All health agencies should treat unknown illnesses as though they are full communicable (air, touch, fluid, etc) until extensive research has shown otherwise. Really dropped the ball. Ventilation systems....

Ventilation systems...yeah, it allows the spread of germs and viruses. Even if off, the pipes are still there. Every room has.

Desalination. Pipe it through and disperse throughout australia the way they pipe oil through north America. Set up smaller veins off of that for sprinkling and irrigation and guess what? Lakes, green meadows, etc. This would be a wonderful project to start after such a beating.

A problem with the consumerist society - people no longer know how to enteratian themselves without consuming instant content or material goods.

Even before the "consumerist society", people would go outside to be entertained by travelling minstrels, run and play with wooden toys, shop in the market (yes, they still did that - for basic goods at least), go to theatres, etc. Notice, they are social activities where travelling outside and being with people is a necessity. Being cooped up is no fun in any time period. Best they could do is have xbox, computer, et lan parties in a simulated world of one they cannot in reality take part in.

Why do so many Japanese men find very young girls still at school sexy?

Some people find old people attractive too or same sex. Different strokes different folks, i guess. Not just japan either. Society is evolving. People are more open now.

Bike riders on the sidewalk who expect me to give way to them but I don't and just ignore them. I make exceptions for small children.

Always carry a stick to put in the spokes of a bike tyre...just in case you want to enforce the law. Exceptions for small children? Nah, bonus points.

"A pharmacy near JR Shimbashi Station in central Tokyo posted a warning that it would sell each customer or group no more than two bags of surgical masks, a measure intended to prevent people from buying large quantities of the product and reselling them for profit."

Isnt that what the businesses do? Buy in bulk and sell individually, with profit. How dare the peasants engage in capitalism.

If the insurance companies wont cover, businesses should just drop all insurance. Insurers will watch the economic loss then. If insurance is mandatory, then govt needs to either force total coverage or provide their own.
