The Nikkei newspaper (subscription only) reported on Thursday that three Japanese paper companies—Daio, and Nippon Paper—are expanding their manufacturing facilities for what are politely called "incontinence products" due to an expected surge in demand. The Nikkei said adult diapers are expected to outsell baby diapers in Japan by 2020, but according to Unicharm, Japan's biggest diaper maker, the tipping point was in 2011.

This is a serious problem in Japan. You have this elderly population that's not working and not enough young ones to support them. @Jayman is right, they need to start having more kids. But I heard it's expensive, especially the education part.
why does that sound bad
As bad as it sounds, they need to start having more kids there. Human instincts are to create offspring, it should be happening there too
yeah i'm with @goyo, it must smell terrible all over the counter
