Karoshi

Here is another word that many people may not have known existed. Karoshi. The word origin is again Japanese and until recently has been accepted by the English language. The meaning, death from over work carries the same meaning over from the Japanese. I admit it�fs a rather dark topic to bring up here but an interesting one such that Japan has a society up until fairly recently has been a work work work 6 to 7 days a week. As far as I know the Koizumi government has relaxed this quite a bit in the recent years. I�fm not so sure if the acceptance of the word karoshi into English was due to the fact that there are more people dying from overwork. Let�fs hope not. Let�fs slow down the pace and stop to enjoy the flowers!
