The Haves' wealth has, in many cases, grown to unspendable wealth, which is to say that they can spend it seemingly carelessly without danger of depleting the ever-growing pile.

The Have-nots are in for a lot more pain.

Clearly it's one of those 'Japanese' things where some people train and prepare especially for this event and would shamelessly trample you to better their 'luck'. And if one lands a coveted super-ultra-mega-lucky title, defending it will become life encompassing.

No surprise here, but can we please have international presence and technical advice headed so as to not overlook the kind of simple but "unexpected" shortcomings of the Fukushima plant.

Yah, but dumped? Like an unwanted fridge? At least dig a hole, for her dignity.

Avatar is the last movie that I saw in a cinema. That's how bad it was. It scared me off movies.

No, Kurisupisu, not true. I hit a guy who jumped out in front of me on my motorbike. He said he looked. I said it was attempted suicide. The cops let me go.

And then there's the change to digital currency. You'd better spend your savings before that happens.

I suppose it's not too extravagant by Tokyo standards. You'd struggle to feed your family once a month with it though... It is typical, however, that unsubscribing is going to be problematic.

Possibly, Kumgaijin, but I've received unclaimed money that I've handed in. The cops sent me a letter inviting me to claim it. I was pleasantly surprised as I had forgotten about it.

Some here assume that it is his bicycle. Perhaps, but more likely only through possession being 9/10 of the law.

Soup kitchen in Hokkaido? Me thinks not.

But if I was to put it on the line for food, it'd be from a supermarket, and for more essential items than canned drinks.

Anticipating there will be an appropriate followup story here with his trial & sentencing.

Sounds fishy to me. How does he maintain a smoking habit without money? Does he regularly steal? irregularly smoke? Or just pull the wool over the eyes of his inquisitors?
