      Is it possible to survive being homeless in Japan?

      Just wondering?

      I think anything is possible, especially given enough circumstance.
      For instance, it is certainly possible to survive after jumping from a skyscraper for up to a minute, depending on the height of the building.
      Also, the mukade centipede is common in Japan, and many of them do not have homes.
      And, if home is where the heart is, what about those people who travel a lot?
      ---o--- my DCs say I'm dreamy.

      It's possible. I watched a PBS series on Japan, and it showed the lives of various people in different economic situations. There was one homeless guy in it who would collect cans all day to afford alcohol. There was also something about how the government doesn't really give handouts, so things are really hard on them. Also, not sure why your first post in this forum would be completely off topic.

      Off topic? He made the thread.
      Wouldn't an off-topic initial post violate some fundamental law of physics or logic?
      If homeless people in japan is not the topic, what is?

      Auron and sloth, you remind me of the joke that goes something like: You are right, Auron, this thread is off-topic. And so are you sloth, no thread can be off-topic. Wait a moment they cannot both be right, someone might object. And that person would of course also be right.

      Off topic as in: Most people who register to this forum places their first topic in the dreaming section. Not the lounge. Don't you find it kind of odd that he's asking this question on this particular site or is that just me?

      Perhaps he is doing a research study of how different forums respond to this question: how many forums will have a moderator delete it? How many will flame the original poster? How many will answer the question seriously? How many will move it to senseless banter? How many will try to incorporate the site's main topic into the reply, such as "Funny you should ask, I had a dream about that ..."? How many forums will notice that this is the original poster's first thread? How many of the respondents will admit to doing a reality check based on the weirdness of this thread?

      or how many assumptions a poster makes based on the intent rather then just simply answering the question.

      Ok, I will simply answer the question: I don't have a clue.

      EDIT: I bet though the real answer is not simple at all.
