Comment on Tokyo Governor Candidate: “I Will Ban Violent Games” by Ihmhi:
“Nobody questions things in this country anymore… everybody’s too fat and happy. Everybody’s got a cell phone that will make pancakes and rub their balls now, ya know? Way too fucking prosperous for our own good. Way too fucking prosperous. Americans have been bought off and silenced by toys and gizmos, and no one learns to question things.” -George Carlin
Substitute “Americans” with “Young People in damn near every industrialized nation”, and that explains things pretty well IMO.

Konata #19? She is QUEEN OF PETTANKO. It’s a status symbol! But seriously, maybe it’s because I’ve been watching anime for 15+ years, but when I hear “pettanko” the first thought in my head is Konata from Lucky Star.
- FOX: “Japan Will Become Extinct!”:
Fortunately the problem is self-correcting. The people who are too hung up on tradition will be bred out by the people who aren’t. It’d be a fantastic time to hit the lottery, buy a mansion in Japan, and father a dozen kids or so. A hundred years from now your family could have been the starting point of a large population segment. d=
