Posted in: Double tax season just around the corner for U.S. expats See in context

I read a year ago how US expats are giving up their citizenships because the dual tax laws are so hard to comply with. I believe this is a link to the article I read. http://www.newsmax.com/US/taxes-citizenship-election-2012/2012/04/17/id/436114

@The Munya Times: Yes, it does seem like aluminum with ceramic coating. I prefer to stay away from aluminum as much as possible. If the ceramic coating proves to last a long time it may be safe to use this though.

Posted in: Yakuza membership lowest since 1992, police say See in context

I read somewhere that Japan has had a lower birth-rate for years. Could it just be that the number is down but the percentage of young Yakuza remains the same?

Posted in: Salt-loving wheat could help ease food crisis See in context

@ironchef The alternative to "messing with the food supply" is to let poor people starve because food becomes unaffordable. There are other alternatives like China's 1 child policy or other even worse ideas.

According to a life expectancy study posted at http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0005140.html our life expectancy has been going up for the past 40 years or so you mention. People do get sick today and in the past. We get new diseases today but there were still plagues in the past that could have wiped out entire civilizations.

As an adult, this is the internet so I can only presume, you are free to make your own choices as to what to put in your body. Organic is great if you can afford it. Growing your own food is even better if you live where it's possible. But you had the opportunity to survive to adulthood only because there was enough food for you.
