The most convenient thing for the government is for you to drop dead at work.

@OssanAmerica

"Only if you needlessly provoke a nuclear power and threaten then with nuclear attack. Most nations with nuclear weapons don't do this for obvious reasons."

Which is exactly what Trump is doing. You poke the bear enough and.....

Posted in: Trump says Texas shooting due to 'mental health problem,' not a gun issue See in context

"We have a lot of mental health problems in our country, as do other countries."

Ok, you admit that other countries have the same mental health problems, so, why don't all these other countries have the same level of gun crime? Join the dots and you get either of two answers.

Either, it is the number of guns and the ease of obtaining the guns.

Or, America has the worst case of mental health.

Apart from Sth America, the USA has the worst figures for gun related homicide in the developed world.

The argument of having nuclear weapons as a "deterant" could also have the opposite effect of making oneself a "target".

If what happened at Sandy Hook failed to change attitudes, nothing will. In America there are 113 guns for every 100 people. It's like a cancer with no known cure,

According to the banner, the Matsuri went on for most of the day. This picture would have only been a very small part. I am assuming that there would have been a majority of some very traditional culture. Good stuff indeed.

And meantime, China, Russia, Nth Korea and others are rolling on the floor laughing, waiting for it all to implode if Trump stays. America doesn't need enemies anymore.

As much as Japan likes to portray its self as a lover of nature, it is anything but. If you can't kill it, concrete it.

A bit rich coming from a PM and gov't that is also trying to water down anti discrimination/ vilification laws, saying that we all have the right to be a bigot.

It all starts earlier than the office environment. Anyone with experience of the teaching methods in Japanese high schools will know. Until Japan adopts modern and progressive education nothing will change.

Posted in: Feline good: Cats counter stress at Tokyo firm See in context

In one place I worked at, we had a Labrador dog, which was very nice. Problem was, every one kept giving the dog treats (usually sweet biscuits ) and the poor thing almost exploded, it got that over weight. The dog had to go on a "holiday" to recover as we almost killed it. After this the dog was limited to set feeding times. It is nice having a pet around.

I, like many others I am sure,  would only wish them a loving and long marriage. In all reality, she will probably revel in being not so much in the royal spotlight.

Japanese culture teaches and encourages it's population to be subservient and unquestioning, which is easily exploited by business. The younger generation is slowly standing up to this culture, thankfully, but will still take generations to eliminate this culture entirely.

Any economist will tell you that the wealth gap is widening, and will continue to for the foreseeable future. Unless you are in the top 10% of earners now your standard of living will only get worse. Why would anyone want to offer this future to their offspring. We always thought that our children would do better than us, but not any more.

Posted in: Trump pledges fealty to NRA gun lobby See in context

@bass4funk. What are your reasons for saying that what works in one country will not work in others. I would suggest that the fact that Australia has only a tenth of gun related deaths Per Capita compared to USA would point to either the success of gun control, or is it just the mentality of Americans that leads to a tendency to want to shoot every and anything. Whatever, this is irrefutable proof that more gun ownership does nothing to stop gun related deaths.

Look up Jim Jeffries Gun Control. It explains the logic in a way even die hard gun owners can not refute.

@Fizzbit....who said anything about burying.? Look on line for container houses, very innovative and practical. By the way plenty of people bury them to grow dope inside with no structural problems. They are stronger than you realise.

Cheaper to buy a second hand shipping container and convert it. Four times the size as well.
