The TRUTH, So To Speak  
Here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies.
*
The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. The French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you

However, Japan has an alarmingly high suicide rate. ;)


It's probably because of the heat.

I know it's making ME loopy.

As much as I like the idea of Japan, if I was stuck living in that crowded of an area, I'd prolly kill myself, too.

It's really not all that crowded.

Not like people make it out to be, anyway.

Re:
True, but I hate crowds. Even 'not that crowded' is more than I usually like. Still, I want to go visit one of these days, and that's really the only thing I have against it (that and not speaking Japanese), so maybe I could deal.

You should try New Jersey!

Well, it's a good thing I can speak two other languages! I think I'll be dropping English from my vocabulary! ;)

Oh, it makes me want to:

-learn and speak only in Japanese
-drink lots of red wine
-live in a ridiculously small apartment with screens and a real futon
-own lots of fantastically understated furniture (in either Japanese or Euro style)
-immerse myself in Japanese pop culture, starting with watching the frighteningly catchy video Ian downloaded for me that is like a 20 member girl group dancing around and singing on a ship
-be incredibly rude and fantastically snobby (ala France) and carry a camera around and take pictures of EVERYTHING (Japanese touristcore)

Hilarity ensues. And there will be much rejoicing.

Or lots of being drunk and eating fish.

Re:
Most of that sounds like a plan to me!

Have you considered moving to Chinatown NYC?
