"today i stick to my plan and cash out of bitcoin. 11/28"

Wow, taking some profit I could understand. But cashing out, just before Wall Street and more mainstream adoption? ouch....

Posted in: Fukushima 'voluntary' evacuees to lose housing support See in context

I dunno, 6 years of free rent should be enough for a lot of people to get back on their feet. What is it that the comments are suggesting? 10 years? 20 years? Some other arbitrary number? Lifetime? Free rent for life for their children and grandchildren?

It does say limited support will still be offered to some who qualify. There are also other regular social programs to support single mothers like Ms. Matsumoto.

Having your life completely disrupted and needing to evacuate would truly suck. But if you are not advocating eternal housing subsidies, what is it that people consider fair?

I sugar-loaded over a hundred kids who came to the door trick or treating. Nope, no pangs of guilt for doing so.

Nah, it's probably a case of someone unable to count to 10 on his extremities either looking to collect the refundable portion of the deposit originally paid or that needs financial assistance to move on. Nothing to do with onions.

Posted in: Money transfer platform TransferWise launches in Japan See in context

I think the sales point is that you get a better exchange rate, so the 1% could very well work out cheaper with these guys. Depends on what rate the bank gives. Online is also another plus, takes me over 30 minutes at various banks to just do a single overseas transfer. Also, might be possible to just do multiple transfers of a million yen, but then they also seem to have an annual cap on transfers (200K for US). Looking at trustpilot reviews, a lot of one star reviews complaining about them.

Looks like they have a JPY1M upper limit for transfers :/
