Productive land and farming skills are the only real valuables in times of troubles. Follow that with gold, lots of bullets and guns.

Posted in: James Bond producer rules out female 007 See in context

I don't want a female 007 that solve problems just like the male 007, shoot/punch/kick first then explosion. A female 007 would solve problems silently, through trickeries and deceptions, which then may end up with giant explosion.

Posted in: Your money or your life: Can nations prosper by putting well-being before GDP? See in context

What matter is GDP when your population live in stress, depression and anxiety ? Fear of losing jobs not because they're lazy, but because there are forces like automation, shifting economic climate - that they can't control - forcing them out, without safety net to bounce back.

Posted in: Nissan has to decide whether it more interested in pursuing Ghosn or fixing what's wrong with the company. It has already proved that it can't do both. See in context

"Fixing what's wrong with the company", LOL. Every Japanese companies I've worked at don't think there's anything wrong with their company, it's just the foreigners who don't understand the Japanese people's "peaceful ways".

A shame really, Nissan Leaf is about the only decent and affordable electric car in Japan. If Toyota comes up with something similar (which they probably can't, since the Keidanren probably wouldn't allow it), Nissan is done.

I saw on TV some combini put soon-to-be-expired food on the internet, but take them off shelves. People check it through an App, and buy it for 50% off.

Posted in: Things look bleak for Japan: Rising layoffs, AI taking jobs, crumbling infrastructure See in context

I was driving on the west side of Biwako a few months ago. The highway there looks like it has been abandoned for years, although the road is still okay, but trees and plants grew into the road covering up road signs whose writings are barely visible. If you live in the big cities, things may look okay, but once you go outskirt, the deterioration of infrastructure is real.

Posted in: Japan Post CEO may resign after 12,836 improper insurance sales uncovered See in context

He made a lot of money for the shareholders, thus only a resignation and a lot of bonus probably, otherwise no-one would want to be the next CEO to do the scam for the shareholders anymore.

I just went to one, 90% are juniors 15+ younger than me, I'm feeling the gap, too wide. Like the article says, it's probably better to arrange smaller private parties with people I know.

Posted in: Japan considers withholding tax system on casino winnings by foreigners See in context

The only thing I regret is that these casinos will be in Osaka. The city is already a cesspool of crime compares to the rest of Japan, and now they're adding fire into it.

He probably experienced working with a couple of lazy chinese then judged the whole people based on this. Such narrow mindedness shown by a supposedly "highly" educated person.
