Images Of A Post-Abenomics Euphoria Hangover

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With Japan's "Misery Index" at its highest in 33 years, it is not surprising that the population of salarymen have turned to the bottle (Johnnie Walker Black) once more. As is well known, Japanese culture dictates that businessmen should not offend their superiors by refusing a drink, but many find themselves imbibing far more than they can handle. The following ten images reflect the other side of Abenomics sentiment-crushing reality - salarymen in various states of intoxication sprawled on pavements, trains and street benches...

 

The train appears to be the most popular resting place when under the influence

Salarymen appear to be able to sleep in the smallest of spaces

Although taking up three seats could be considered greedy

If there isn't enough room to spread out, the walls can be utilised

Or the floor...

Not so much downward facing dog, more upward facing grog...

Inebriated sleeping can lead to Elvis Presley impersonations

It's one thing sleeping in your suit, but stripping off will definitely lead to your picture circulating the World Wide Web

Praying and sleeping simultaneously for base wage increases...

It's daytime!!

I've been to Japan and worked alongside those people before.  I've watched their television.  I have no idea how they continue to exist as a civilization.  I don't know why most of them continue on.  You can't really call what they have a "life", certainly not in our strange sense.  They are more like expendable machine parts, that get worked at maximum capacity all the time.  If they break, they're just a part.  Order a new one.  The tsunami and Fukushima could be seen as a favor from the gods.

I am Chumbawamba.

Pics remind me of the year I spent teaching English in Tokyo.  Lived above a beauty-shop with a freaky gal/hooker from Tasmania, a German gal/hooker with a heroin problem, and a nice girl from New Zealand.  The evening trip home routinely required stepping around 'platform pizzas' - barf on the subway platforms, and stairwells in which lurked urine-soaked chronic drunks.  I can recommend to any young adult the eye-opening adventure of a year spent in Japan.  Pretty safe, and you can make enough teaching English to pay the bills....

Chumbawamba you are right - "they're just a part to be replaced when broken"

But the same is true in the US, Germany, China - slaves to the corporation, and slaves to pay to the state - the robot slave makes just enough to pay bills, feed his family, and has nothing left over for savings. A neighbor who has a Phd, working in cancer research making close to $200k/yr, lost his home in 2009 and is renting since then, has 3 teenage girls that he cannot afford college fees for even 1 of them, and has no extra money for savings. He has a 20 year old Camry and a 1-year-old Nissan Optima, cannot afford vacations, and does not live an extravagent life. 

In SoCal, our State gas tax is $0.53/gal, our top State income tax rate is 13.x%, gas is $4.20/gal, electric bill for a 1,700SF home is $100/mo average, water bill is $40/mo. - nothing cheap in SoCal

A friend who lives in Malaysia pays $5/mo for water, $10/mo for electricty, $0.10/mo for gas (cooking and water heating) - not that I want to live in Malaysia - but WHY the big difference in price for "living" commodities.

The point is to keep us in the sheep pen, producing everyday, paying to keep "their" system going. A world-wide racket.

If America had public transportion, we'd have similar picts of Americans passed out on trains - but our guys are racing home in cars, trying to make it home before they pass out or get a DUI.

Yeah but, because your boss was there with you til just before the last train home, and had the same amount of liquor, you're not expected to do much before noon - so you get up at six and ride the 1st train in still inebriated.

It's a tough life in Japan for the Salaryman. Graduate from college, go to work, marry, have 1.2 kids, your wife "manages" your money, divorces you at age 50 and has all your earnings, and then you lose your job. Kind of a fucked life for many.

Like Chumbawamba said above, you're just a cog in the wheel, a replacable part - in the sheep pen. Not much different in the USA.

My older brother is a lawyer and speaks Japanese.
He lived over there for 4-5 years. I was in college and used to get letters from him with pictures EXACTLY like this.
When he came back to the states and we caught up, I asked him about those pictures. He said in the office he worked at (and apparently every other work place in Japan) when it was quitting time, everyone went drinking. Everyone. If you came home at 6pm, your wife would shit because she'd think your office didn't like you any more. He said you didn't go home until the boss did. The only upside was his boss picked up the check.
I should also add that my brother returned with a fucking cast iron liver. Holy shit could he drink. He brought me back some Saki and we drank it while catching up. Probably went through 3 bottles and I'd never had it before. Anyway, some time during our binge, I blacked the fuck out and pissed myself. I was worthless the next day, as well.
He was fine.
I don't think I'd make it in Japan.
Anyway, I don't think this is anything new. He was there in the early 90's.

I always thought strip clubs are just about the saddest places there are, it's 100% un-erotic, the inmates (strippers) hate being there, and the clientele is pathetic losers who can't get any. Then there's always the slimeball management and the wonderful bouncers. Looking at a fake pair on a bored strung out chick who thinks you're a putz, yeah, uh-huh, I'll pay big bucks for that.

THERE'S where labor's productivity went!

When lying on a subway car floor in a pool of your own vomit is preferable to actually working, you have to begin to question the quality of the choices you've been given...

More proof that government can only produce poverty, misery and death.

Such images are sad and telling but the reality is that in every capital city from New York to London to Sydney such images and worse are to be seen everywhere. And to drunkedness we can add drug taking and other totally depraved behaviour.

Leave the Japanese alone. Heaven knows how many ugly and probably insurmountable challenges they face  as a nation.

you are not a real salaryman until you have passed out drunk in public somewhere. it is a right of passage. i hope feminism finally catches on in japan. passed out women with their dress hiked up around their waist would be much more interesting. if they want to be real salarywomen they will be required to do it. however, a drunk passed out woman would certainly attract a few of the infamous molesters who go to extraordinary lengths to cop a feel from sober women.
