"But let the rest of us make our own choices."

Most people have made their own choice: to live collectively in society and do everything we can for the safety of ourselves and everyone around us.

Another choice is to move out and live in the woods. I suggest Alabama.

Posted in: Toyota launches new Land Cruiser with beefed-up car security See in context

These cars are shocking examples of the trend towards bigger and bigger models. Do two little humans really need something the size and bulk of a tank? Is there no such thing as global warming. What a disgusting thing the human species has become.

Posted in: Olympic Games organizers admit to wasting about 4,000 boxes of food See in context

Probably on the exact same day we were bike riding in distant tokyo subburbs when we came upon an old women we often see hanging about, trying to find shade (no air-con at home) and someone to talk to. Perhaps because I am a foreigner she was able to whisper that she had not eaten for 3 days and did we have some small food? We actually had packed lunch and gave it to her. She almost cried.

Read quick this will surely be removed as "off topic!"

Posted in: The 10 best places for young, single people to live in and around Tokyo See in context

In actual fact, for those who hate cities and all those downtown areas listed, there are places in western tokyo where you can ride your bike to buy free range eggs and see the chickens outside rooting around, fill up your bottles with natural spring water, ride beside farmers fields, see Japanese raccoons many an evening etc etc etc. All this and only 30 mins by train from Shinjuku.

So I would say if you take your time you can find exactly the type of environment you want in greater Tokyo.

Japanese hate noise but this is the nosiest country I know. My tiny local station has at least 6 machines the repeatedly speak, bleep or squeak. It also has a highly synthesised sound of a bird whistle that shrieks out from two different locations with such annoying regularity it sets the nerves on edge--and this is supposed to calm people and deter jumping off the tracks under a train. It actually makes me consider it.
