Saw this in the news today. So I'm guessing moral is pretty low at TEPCO at the moment. Working there you must see what's really going on and how futile it is. Sure, Japan is the suicide capital of the world but this still can't be good.


IBARAKI — Police said Thursday that a Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) employee apparently jumped to his death in Ryugasaki, Ibaraki Prefecture, on Wednesday.

On another note, they are trying to pass off Fukushima fruits and vegetables at the supermarkets here in Japan. See this all the time, poor unsuspecting gaijin shopping at the markets can't read kanji and buy the Fukushima products thinking they are getting a great deal. Could be OK to eat or bad to eat, can't be 100% sure here with how people here greedily slip in products deemed unsafe.

I can read kanji cuz I can read mandarin...don't know how to pronounce it in proper Japanese form, but I can get the meaning...so my question is...what is the kanji for "Fukushima" that "gaijin" don't know so I can avoid said produce or products?
Yeah...people kill themselves sometimes.

Clearly, OP, radioactive fruits and veggies are UNSAFE to eat! *rolls eyes*

Hey, everybody knows that radiation can't hurt you if you keep smiling.
I know its true because the nice tepco man in the expensive suit said so

Many Tepco workers on the site right now are provided by the Yakuza, and some of them are working off huge gambling debts, or are in trouble with them for other reasons. Maybe took the easy way out?

Not according to this guy who was arguing with me and saying that a little radiation is actually beneficial...so he might prefer radioactive contaminated food because he thinks it's healthier? I couldn't convince him otherwise:

I guess some people like him might prefer to eat the contaminated food as a health supplement

how bad must it truly be for someone working at a radioactive clean up site, to become depressed enough to take his own life.

one would think if things were going well, decent, okay that this person would have felt good about what they were doing, albeit concerned for their own health, but good because of their dedication to helping others, yet this man killed himself....

me thinks the situation is at the point of workers becoming depressed because they know how much death will ensue due to their lies and negligence, that's what me thinks.

if you're doing a decent job of trying to help and fix something in a crisis situation, depression doesn't follow, many feeling's and emotions will, but depression isn't one of them and suicide certainly not. i think what we have here is a decent human being who wanted to help, only to find his country and employer don't actually give a rats ass about anything but themselves...

Was this guy even workibg on the stricken reactors? There have to be thousands of tepco workers doing non clean up jobs.

Hopefully the chef is just bringing soya sauce with him. Use veggies and fruits and meats/fish from France.

Man if that were true wouldn't that be a piece of news. Any articles or evidence to support this? You are not the first to state it I am just curious.
