Wow, another article from Japan. I always got the impression that everyone was in a big sleep about their hopeless government, but this article shows some life. It's all about some bizarre earthquake subsidies.
In Japan, most of the old houses are disasters waiting to happen. But a handy-dandy government subsidy allows you to find out how really doomed you are. But no way to fix it!
Needless to say, not many people are taking them up on the offer. Ignorance is bliss!
