ever think of suicide before ?
Train is coming..1..2..3..be prepare to suicide !!
(I got this from my friend.)
I found it to be very interesting and at the same time it raises my doubt on why do Japanese like to take their own lives.As a matter of fact, Japan has the highest suicide rate in the world.I bet jumping onto a moving train is the most popular suicide style of all.Especially in Tokyo it is almost a daily routine.Japanese trains are so punctual that if it comes late, one can easily guess that the train had bang on someone.
Why human suicides ??
1. Because of lost love
2. Because of stress in job
3. Because of money problem etc
But in Japan I found out that they suicide on different reasons.They can even (1) suicide just because of bullying problem in school or (2)just because they are too bored with their life or (3)just plainly because of embarassment. Isnt it too fragile ?? In Japan everybody can suicide!!From country's top minister,headmaster of a school to a primary school student.And they can even kill their own neighbour just because they are noisy. I was shocked to read a news today that a policeman has took his own life in his very own policebox.Isnt he the one who is suppose to stop people from suiciding ?!!
I cant understand why. Can we call this a different of culture?
To me, no matter how harsh a problem turns out...suicide will never be in my option!!
By the way, today i was asked to introduce my lab in front of my junior so that they can have a rough picture on what to expect and in the meantime help them decide on which lab to choose.
Frankly said, everyone in my lab hates our lecturer especially there is this one girl who planned to critise him to the worst so that nobody will come to our lab next year.She asked me to help...mm..i dont hate him but still i dont like his style...so i didnt promise her.But dont know why,in front of my juniors unconsciously everything came out from my mouth was only bad words about him.
Now i felt a bit guilty as i did something which i had always critise.Am I being influenced into the japanese way of talking bad words behind one's back.
sorry to my sensei...
