Posted in: Coppola backs Scorsese's comments on Marvel films See in context

Movies as inspiration, movies as entertainment, whatever man, no point hating the market, especially as we all worship the "free-market" so much. You can't just love it when it works in your favor.

The communist is now controlling the capitalist using its own medicine, profit. Don't we live in "interesting" time ?

Posted in: We shouldn’t treat plastic as an enemy, nor ostracize those who use it. What’s needed is appropriate management of trash and to search for solutions through innovation. See in context

Plastic is literally a super material. Light, easy to mold, cheap and the best thing, it's indestructible! Which makes it ironic, because we use it for 5 seconds and we throw it.

Posted in: A great many people fear getting trampled, thwarted, left behind. Machines take their jobs. Traffickers take their dignity. Demagogues take their rights. Warlords take their lives. Fossil fuels take their future. See in context

Why is it that the guy that is supposed to have solutions never seem to have any solutions ? And tax payers keep paying their salary ?

Posted in: The Japanese government says the consumption tax has to be raised to help pay for the nation's ballooning social welfare costs. Do you agree with this view? See in context

Mostly welfare to sustain old people (a.k.a. nenkin), which is okay if the government doesn't totally ignore education for young people.

Posted in: Greta Thunberg: Climate savior or puppet? See in context

The world is never a simple black or white, she definitely started with good intentions, became famous (or "influencers" in today's term), which makes her a potential candidate to be used as puppet. As history has proven, the messenger and her believers have different goals most of the time, and at this point, I can surely say I dislike some of her believers and some of her critics.

Plastic packaging and CDs can go in a snap, steam is a proven game platform, Sony and Microsoft can do the same with their consoles, why don't they ?

"No nukes" and "Stop climate change" ... what if I told you, nuclear is one of the solutions to stop climate change ?

Posted in: Do you see any alternative to Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) dumping radioactive water from its destroyed Fukushima nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean as it runs out of room to store it? See in context

I'd pay Elon to ship those containers into space, along with the executives responsible for this mess.

Posted in: What is the policy on paternity leave at your workplace? As far as you know, has anyone taken it? See in context

I work at a pretty big company here. It wouldn't be possible 5 years ago, but plenty of fathers take paternity leave for like 3 months now, no one bats an eye, it's just the new normal. Some in management that are deemed too important, usually strike a deal to go home early (like 3 to 4pm) everyday for 6 months or so.

Posted in: S Korean cosmetics firm boss quits over YouTube video praising Japan See in context

I was wondering why SK are so fired up by this event, then I read that 20% of South Korea's GDP is from Samsung, the country and the rest of the people exist pretty much to support Samsung's economic activity, it's little wonder that Japan's move is taken as "personal" to most Koreans, we're literally threatening their means to life.

Posted in: Police arrest another Chinese man over 7pay fraud See in context

So, we had Chinese neighbors where we live before, wife was often asked to purchase diapers, and was given 1000yen as "reward".

I'm just guessing here, but I think the modus operandi is like this. So the hack was done by entities in China and they wechat it to friends of friends of friends who happen to be in Japan, ask them to buy stuffs with the hacked account, with rewards of course. If you think about it, Chinese in Japan are sleeper cells (maybe involuntary) for hacker groups in China.

Posted in: 'No Japan' banners scrapped in Seoul district after outcry See in context

Japan moves a finger, whole South Korea throw a fit. This only shows how much influence Japan has over South Korea. I don't like Abe, didn't vote for his party last election, but I like that they don't back down over their decision on this matter.

At least we know that Trump has not dipped any of his tiny fingers in the games industry's $135B value, and probably in too deep in the guns and military industry.

Posted in: Want to add trillions to the global economy? Back female founders See in context

The study, by consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, found more working-age men start businesses than women in every country except Vietnam, Mexico, Indonesia and the Philippines.

That's because in these countries, it's either start your own business or stay dirt poor all your life, no man to rely upon, no government to rely upon.

Posted in: Do robots and AI lead to more job creation than they destroy? See in context

Yes and no. Yes for those who are willing to learn about mechanic, robot training, etc. No if you prefer menial work. But it's a mistake to just leave people out of this advancement, which is why I'm a supporter of basic income. When robots do a lot of things, that leave us to do the creative things, actually living instead of working to survive

Posted in: 56% oppose amending Constitution under Abe gov't: poll See in context

Aso just said that with LDP winning majority of seats, that means the country supports tax raise.

This is a weakness or weirdness in Japan's democracy, people vote for the party without supporting their policies.

Posted in: What is your understanding of the expression 'cultural appropriation?' See in context

The definition of cultural appropriation is that of dominant culture adopting minor culture. I think that anyone who sees that as bad, think that their own culture as superior/dominant that they don't need to learn from others. Afraid to be painted as racist, they hide behind their narrow mindedness. You can never do wrong if you don't do anything after all.

More foreigners coming here and refusing to observe the local culture beyond anime, kimono, samurai, and oooh exotic Japan. Japan is not your theme park, even in a theme park you have to abide to rules and customs.

Posted in: Do people think about their retirement money on the assumption they'll live to 100? I don't think ordinary people do. People have to think now about whether or not they've got any money. See in context

Just got big bonus last month, you want to know where it goes Aso ? 100% into saving! I also read that 30% of Japanese also save their big bonus this year, You and BOJ can keep dreaming about that 2% inflation, lol lol lol.

Also, I read that top government officials got paid highest in history this year! What the hell are we paying you for dude ? You and your cronies won't get my vote in the coming election on the 21st for sure.
