Please do, I live in a city with strict garbage code, yet just a stone throw away is another city with very laxed garbage code. I could just pick my garbage and put it at the next city's collection point, it's pretty stupid.

Posted in: Man arrested for raping woman in Tokyo; admits to similar crimes from 4 years ago See in context

To anyone saying women should feel safe at all times, I agree completely!! But in the mean time, while we wait for the rapey guys and the creppy guys and the violent guys to learn that raping, being creepy and violence is bad and that self-control is good, do you have a more immediate solution than the typical "guys shouldn't do this", "girls shouldn't do that", etc. ?

“all their friends go; can they be the only ones who don’t?”

Soccer, if kid loves it, sure! But it seems the kid goes because "all their friends go". Yeah, bad investment! Statistically speaking, only a very-very small percentage of kids who "love" soccer manage to grow up and become professional soccer players. In that context, it's more like gambling, quite effective at destroying your savings.

Juku is not needed, it's practically a class for coming up an answer for 32x78 in under 2 seconds. If you rely on Juku to educate your kids, they will be replaced by AI in the future.

65000yen a month, 780000yen a year, 7.8million in 10 years, that's your kid's college education there but you wasted it.

If you have decent income but no savings, you're really bad with statistics, chances, money and long-term planning.

Posted in: Japan's trade balance returns to surplus after dip See in context

Sometimes you have negative, sometimes you have surplus, sometimes you buy more useless stuffs from others, sometimes others buy more useless stuffs from you, that's just how trade works, in the end, it's the relationship that matters.

Posted in: World faces 'staggering' obesity challenge: study See in context

there is no 'one size fits all' approach

This "political correctness" stuffs is the reason why this epidemic won't be solved. The solution is a simple 'one size fits all' approach, less sugar, less meat, more walking, nothing else will work. Of course, if you say this, then the food industry will discredit you, the meat industry will discredit you, and the car/oil industry will discredit you, and everybody else will scream "you're infringing my freedom".

Posted in: Moral education, which takes up the issue of bullying, is currently an extracurricular activity at schools, but it will become a subject in the regular curriculum of junior high schools from April 2019. What do you think about this? See in context

Elementary School already have this. The class is called doutoku 道徳, it's pretty funny actually, I kid you not, but in the textbook, there's a lesson dedicated to how loud you should talk depending on how far the person you're talking to is away from you, and where you are.

I'd rather see grafiti than signs of "KEEP LEFT", "KEEP MANNER", "LOOK WHERE YOU GO" on laminated paper hanged everywhere!! Do city planners think those signs are a "nice" part of city beautification ?

Posted in: IMF's Lagarde warns of protectionism in Asia See in context

@M3M3M3, Chinese goods should face restrictions if those goods are destined to Africa or countries with less development than China, countries who want to develop its industry. Western countries are already rich, do they want to continue competing with China to make useless plastic craps ? I sure hope they don't.

A country should protect its industry at all cost until it's ready to compete globally, akin to a parent who protects an nurture her child until adulthood before plunging her into the real world.
