Friends? Engineering students from the prestigious Kyoto University of Japan have got no time for friends!

Thankfully, university officials recognize that fact and installed a series of screened seats called "bocchi seki" or "lonely seats" in the engineering school campus lunchroom. According to Asahi News, the seats turned out to be quite popular with the forever aloners:

"If you are sitting at a big table by yourself it's like you don't have any friends and that is embarrassing," said one 22 year-old male student. "When I don't have much time or I'm in a hurry, the lonely seats are convenient," said a 22 year-old female student.
