Get rich or die trying

Yoko and I, in an effort to get rich or die trying, are going to be investing a large amount of our collective capital in utilities. In the EU. I know, sounds riveting, doesn't it. But here's the deal, if you are Japanese (which I guess I sort of am now), any sort of offshore investment is prudent because the yen is super-weak and Japan is slowly losing its economic prowess.

Disagree? Think the Japanese economy is going to get better? Well, take a look at this picture:

This is the diaper aisle at a local grocer. The adult diaper aisle. And yes, everything you see: diapers. You can't work 80 hours at Mitsubishi with one of these on. Don't ask me how I know, I just do.

Yoko and I encourage you to buy Danish natural gas. It's refreshing.
