I dunno, I'm content to be a Californian living in the redwoods and pastures of Humboldt County, Northern California, eating bento, and maybe still missing out on those four extra years or maybe enjoying them, (but who really cares, my life is slow) instead of being Japanese and living in a supercompact megalopolis teeming with hierarchical collectivized conformity. (As long as we're going to use stereotypes, might as well pull em all out, right?)

grass is not always greener

yes, but you've got your own problems; rampant health care costs, racist hillbillies (and not just the police dept), you have to drive everywhere and your governor is one generation removed from being a goddamn nazi; that on top of being a hollywood square. (pun intended).

japan, too, has its pluses and minuses...

Those problems dont feel like my problems since I have Medicare, I don't associate with racists (most people I meet aren't hillbillies... not cityfolk sure, but I moved here to escape the them anyway), I take the bus everwhere, and the governor is out in a year!

Re: grass is not always greener

sounds like a nice place to keep your head in the sand, then. "not my problems..."

i wasn't only talking about YOU, but the problems of the collective you vs. the collective them in japan.
