first world countries have too much suicide rate.. their tolerance for these things are too low... looks like they need to learn from 3rd world countries.

Posted in: Q&A: How do I receive ¥100,000 from the government? See in context

My Number is still optional. The individual still has the right to refuse it. So I think the government offer another option to let those people get their subsidies. by the way, does anyone know if a family has 6 members, still they get 100,000 for each of them? i heard that the government will just give up to 300,000 limit for each family. so if you are 4 in the family you only get 300,000. thanks

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic CEO hints Games could be in doubt even in 2021 See in context

I am thinking of this even before the postpone. The Government needs to subsidized all family and individuals to make them stay in their homes for atleast 1 month or until all the infected are being point out. else the virus will keep on spreading.

Posted in: Apple iPhones get bigger and pricier; Watch turns to health See in context

what I really like about the iphone is they last about 5 years. i used my iphone5 for 5 years without a problem. now im using the iphone6 for a year already. for my style, I just look for a brandnew iphone that is about 3 years old since released and used it for 5 years. i see no problem at all and i always get it for a very cheap price.

This is why i drive very slow on a very narrow road. as in about about 10-15kph. Tobidashi is always possible anytime. I hate my neighbors who run fast even in a very narrow road.

Posted in: Triumph of the iPhone See in context

what makes the iPhone successful is the brain washing of the people. why would someone choose iphone without SD cards slot, no dualsims. closed system etc over a cheaper phone that has all the accessibility and user access to all its system? apple user here LOL

Posted in: Apple changes Japanese iPhone contracts after antitrust probe See in context

Buy sim free iphone spot cash and just connect it to any kakuyasu sim suited to you like uqmobile, iijmio, ymobile etc.

Or buy it cash via credit card and just pay it through your credit card and connect it to any kakuyasusim. still worth than paying expensive contracts from any of these 3 big tele companies.
