Just curious, how many of you that think this is a bad idea are against the idea of reactor restarts?

Energy's gotta come from somewhere, this is one way that's clean and provides jobs.

The dam has nothing to do with providing electricity. It is planed to provide water and flood control. However the water demand in Greater Tokyo Area is shrinking for the last 10 years. Noone needs additional water. It is just a project to provide cash to the overblown construction industry.

Where do these guys come up with these ideas? I am not sure that I have ever read any history where an invading country set up brothels for their soldiers by forcing local women into prostitution. Does anybody else have a reference? If not I would have to say that it is unique to Japan. And even if it wasn't unique it is no justification for official mass rape.

Just search wikipedia. The German Wehrmacht also had brothels where they forced local women into prostitution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_military_brothels_in_World_War_II

“Can we say there were none in Germany or France? It was everywhere in Europe,” he told an inaugural press conference, according to local media reports.

This is true. The German military also forced women into prostitution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_military_brothels_in_World_War_II

There is enough money for food and medicine. And speaking about the environment. To understand the environment you need something to compare.

From the sample we could learn how the solar system was made in the beginning and how the solar system evolved. We cannot learn this from meteroites found on earth, since they already changed a lot. This also helps us to understand chemistry better. It is impossible to understand earth if you look only at the system earth. You need something to compare.

Now where is the more important research?

A country like Japan has nothing to do with the world hunger! And it is not Japans or any other industrial country´s duty to fight the world hunger! For this you need better politicans in Africa.

It also depends what kind of job you want. If you want to repair motorcycles, than you must be able to talk to the customers. So you must have very high language abilities, or otherwise it doesn´t make any sense.

Most companies in the world do not care of their employees talent. Especially if it is a big company. Thats the way it is. Also as much as I know working hours in the US are much longer than in Japan.
