Posted in: Do you think stores should stop providing customers with plastic shopping bags for free to reduce plastic waste? See in context

Enough with this stupidity. Unless you are also going to end giving out other plastic items, you aren't saving the world in any way, shape or form by axing one item. Been to PH recently, and you're given a paper straw for a milkshake (for example), and 1/3 the way thru it, the straw turns to mush. Nobody is recycling either there, paper nor plastic.

As for Japan, they already lead the world in retail waste. McDonalds probably goes thru a small forest each year with the amount of paper bags they give out.

Posted in: What do you think are the root causes of the data falsification scandals that have plagued corporate Japan in recent years? See in context

Doesn't require 10,000 words to answer. The answer is obvious: Japanese fear of failure and loss of face.

Posted in: Australia seeks to ban schools from expelling gay students See in context

The problem with this is then you'll have privileged gay students claiming the reason for their expulsion was because of their sexuality, not because of the actually offense(s).

Why would the schools admit to anything? That would require people to be honest.

Japanese aren't really good at driving anyway, so not surprised by all the passive-aggressive road rage.

No problem, TEPCO. Simply dump the rest of the water/waste into the ocean and be done with it. We've all moved on anyway with the 2020 Olympics on the way. Yippee!!!

Maybe start with fully cleaning up and re-housing ALL people affected from nuclear meltdown in Fukushima area before wasting time/money on this new pet project.

Posted in: Rise in juvenile fraud offenders causes huge financial loss in Japan See in context

There's a simple solution. Start charging the "kids" with crimes. If under 14's can't be charged with anything, I'll be sure to train my kids to be Bitcoin hackers while in elementary school. No consequences for anything.

You want people on bicycles to folow rules when you have idiots of scooters, motorcycles, and the like weaving in and out between cars, ridng the middle line, going around cars on the left and right lanes to be first in line. Yea, ok.

Japan can't even sit down with S Korea and squash their disputes. As if a meeting with N Korea would end any differently.

Makes sense, as does nothing else in Japan. Don't have people qualify who belong. Just have people considered by the organizers to be prominent gamers on YouTube. No different than Japanese game shows who only feature people already gamefully employed and over paid - comedians, actors, musicians, etc. So much for giving the average person a chance at anything.

Posted in: Our goal is to create unmanned production lines that can operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We expect this to address problems with productivity and labor shortages. See in context

More robots, less robots - you still need people, and that is the area that Japan has no solution for. Are they going to build robots capable of impregnating females here so the population can grow?

If they can remain profitable year after year with such a scheme in place, then more power to them. Certainly the polar opposite of what you'll see in the rest of Japan.

This is what you end up with when you have a society of victims (and bystanders) who won't stand up for themselves/each other.

I don't want a doctor who needed 4+ visits to the exam board to pass a test. Doesn't bode too well for their competence in all the other areas they'll need to be fluent in along their career.

No cares about their employment status. I'm more concerned with the stupidity of immediately visiting the Koban and confessing. Better to give yourself a fighting chance and at least make a run for it, act surprised when caught, say it wasn't you.

The reason all the shady dealings went down in the Philippines is because that is the way you do business there. There are no rules to even play by in a country such as that. And it's not a whole lot better thruout the rest of Asia, expecially when dealing with large scale construction, casino business, etc.

Keep icing that elbow. But people need to slow down on the "greatest" comments when he's so early in his big league debut. Revisit that debate in 10-15 yrs.
