I say let the rich do whatever they want. It's their lives, they are responsible of their choices, they need to learn how to deal with addiction, or die.
In theory I agree with you, legalize everything and let Darwin sort it out.
The trouble with letting them do whatever they want is that it not only put their lives at risk, but also they lives of innocent people.

If they had studied 100 people, they would not have had decimal point in the results.
That figure is just out of 100 to make it easier to understand.
In the actual study, they only had 24 participants spread among each group.

Gargling does have some advantages.
Gargling with salt water can help to dislodge food residue and tonsiliths from your tonsils and other areas of your mouth that brushing your teeth can't. I guess gargling with normal water would be less effective as salt water though.

Child neglect and abuse happen regularly in every society, not just Japan.
On the other hand, the Japanese do seem to have a tendency to do it in more unusual and creative ways.

Wow, many of the JT readers have jumped on the media's bandwagon of making something from nothing.
All the PM said was "that would be good", and suddenly he's "demanding Japan's apology" ?
That's drawing a very long bow.
In any case, let's not forget they entered New Zealand's economic zone, I'd like to see Japan's response if China sent a few fishing boats innocently into Japan's economic zone. Quick Scramble the Jets!
New Zealand should be apologizing to Japan for supporting an Eco-Terrorist organization engaged in acts of Piracy
This is not even true, the NZ and Australian governments have repeatedly opposed the violent tactics used by Sea Shepard. What NZ does support is the protection of endangered species.

Look at the younger Japanese generation now who struggle to write kanji correctly on paper due to being reliant on computers. It takes a lot of exposure and practice to be able to read and write kanji correctly.
For foreigners living in Japan, learning to read or write even just 2000 kanji is a monstrously difficult task for those who are working full time.

Black-Haired Wagyu Hamburger Bento
Not the most appetizing name for a bento by any means.

Posted in: The biggest challenge (for the new cabinet) is tackling the country's aging population and low birthrate. I'll push ahead with reforms to create a social security system reassuring everyone.
