Japan and their stupid overexaggirations. You can't do ANYTHING in Japan without somebody freaking out. Now, I just don't give a flying fart and do what I want to. I get the same looks as before, when I actually tried to be polite. That speaks volumes to me...

I think this is ironically funny. Why? This kind of happens all the time...and it got attention only now?? I don't know how many tweets and posts I see from people actually asking for help because they're depressed, suicidal, etc...but nobody pays attention to that.

Posted in: Japan in 2030: A country from which families have disappeared See in context

It's the women's fault? How so? If it's the men that drove the country and had all the rights for centuries? It's the men that wanted the women to stay at home and do nothing...now after centuries of that they want change and blame women? Reap what you sow. Change doesnt' happen suddenatly over night, it's a gradual process...

If people still are set on the idea that men provide and women nurture...than yes. Japan doesn't give people enough wiggle room for both men and women to work comfortably and still support a family. So the stress of work is dropped on the man's shoulders. Japan did this to themselves. Why not alleviate some of that stress and give women more rights...and not degrade them. For instance, not stigmatize a middle aged woman for wanting to have a career...and not stigmatize a middle aged man for wanting to be a househusband.

Japan it’s kinda hard to want keep old school traditions while at the same time wanting to be the top of anything modern…see the conflict? Pick. Get stuck in the past or move on.

@ Jo Ha, yeah being a foreigner is pretty bad in Japan, being a woman foreigner is even worse. They are so sexist there. If you're foreigner and a woman you're pretty much shafted.

@ Maiko_Toyama, yes I have been neutralized. My parents have moved here when I was 14, and I was treated horribly as a foreigner by other students. The teachers said nothing. Before Japan we moved to Russia, and nobody picked on me cuz I was a foreigner, they just called me the quiet kid.

And I've been to America, north and south, central too. Canada. Australia, South Africa and Kenya, Russia, Belarus. And Japan was the only country that really picks at their foreigners and then complains that their population isn't growing.... Only in Japan, for such a "save face" society will a native be rude to you cuz you're a foreigner, but no be obvious about it. At least everywhere else in the world if they don't like you they'll let you know why instead of leaving you dumb founding and guessing why.

Posted in: 50 reasons Tokyo is the world's greatest city See in context

Hum, Tokyo is the world's greatest city? This an opinion coming from a person who comes from a military-family background and has lived in a few major first-world country cities around the world. Most of what's on the list is an eye-catching tourist trap and you can find in any other first-world city. If you live here it's meh. It's like any other overpopulated city. It's stressful living. The noise pollution is horrible cuz there's no law to mandate it. The people are ok, they have a superiority complex and don't really want to include foreigners for immigration...yet complain about their diminishing population. I think Tokyo, like any other city, has it's perks and cons. But I personally wouldn't want to live here again.

Oh one thing about Seattle is that well, it's green? You have mountains on one side and the ocean on the other. Concrete doesn't' take over the city. Unlike a lot of other major cities. And it doesn't rain a lot here, it's more of an overcast that's the "issue". It rains more in Chicago when compared to Seattle.

Hey YuriOtani guess what? Your country isn't more less special then any other country. Sorry to burst your patriotic bubble. Everybody in the world thinks Japan needs to grow up and own up to their war crimes and denials. But Japan keeps thinking that they're "perfect and they didn't do anything wrong, etc".

Posted in: Fukushima nuclear plant still vulnerable, says director See in context

Zichi. Almost all the damage has already been done. This event has released a small fraction of what Chernobyl did, and it's going to stay that way. Western (light water) reactors are simply not capable of releasing anywhere near as much as Chernobyl if they actually blew up.

Some numbers for you:

370,000 TBq 131-I + 137-Cs = 3.7 x 105 x 1012 Bq 3.7x1017 Bq / (3.7x1010 Bq/Ci) = 10**7 Ci = 10 million curies [roughly 5% of this would be 137-Cs]

Chernobyl released ~50 million curies 131-I, half of that present in the reactor, because there was an explosion, core meltdown and no containment. [add 5% of that in 137Cs]

[IMO: Estimated Dai-Ichi release of 20% of Chernobyl seems really high, given an essentially intact core, good containment, very low dose rates outside 18-mi total contamination radius (~2,600 km2) vs 200,000 km2 light to heavy contamination around Chernobyl. 370 PBq is suspiciously round]

TMI released 30 Ci (a million-fold less) very locally, because containment held.

The entire 1950s Nevada Test Series released 150 million Ci 131-I, delivering an cumulative average 131-I thyroid dose over ~10 yrs of 2 rads (= 20 mSv) to each of 160 million Americans. Dose rate was worst in plains states northeasterly of southern Nevada [http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/causes/i131/nci-reports]

So basically, Japan is a freakin' drama queen and likes attention.

...Japanese people are supposed to be educated. I mean they go to school then go to cram school! I guess they lose all common sense after they leave school? Or is it only book smarts and not street smarts/common sense???

Evacuating the whole city? To where? And what basis is this whole "worst case scenario of chain reaction explosions"????

Oh wait oh nos it's like the Aztec calendar says, END OF THE WORLD! Well at least for Japan... Come on Japan...be realistic....and stop playing the victim and being an effin hypochondriac!

In short to answer all the questions, people need pills cuz we're lazy! My dog died, i'm depressed...we have a pill for that! My kid drank coffee! But now they have AHDD! We have a pill! My kid is jumping off of walls and won't sit for 3+ hours straight watching tv like I want him/her too! Oh wait we have a pill for that! Etc etc etc....
