Not even the great thunder beast could fuck up Japan like this...

Japan... Christchurch... Chile...

is it me, or is being a bunch of mindless, drooning christians on a out-of-control, burning airplane perhaps a good thing? (assuming the 200,000 max allowed christians into heaven was only a local zoning ordinance in Isreal and really, everybody will get into heaven when all shit happens next year?)

sorry but for the first time since ive retired last year, im wondering really long and hard what the folk mother nature is up to...

First, I'd like to point out that, despite the perfect setup, I am not going to make the obligatory DBZ joke.

Second... Yeah. Earthquake + Tsunami + Possible nuclear meltdown = Just about as bad as it gets.

So now both reactor 1 and reactor 3 at Fukushima I have blow their buildings due to ignition of hydrogen. The reactors themselves are still contained, however.

As someone that lives on the coastline, I cant wrap my mind around that.

Live Geiger counter in Tokyo.

Mirror of the current measurement.

In an appropriate work of fiction, this is how Japan rises out of the literal ashes to dominate the world.

In real life, this is going to be a major problem.

Gah! Small wonder the USS Ronald Reagan was ordered to pull back from the coastline!
I forsee a large uptick in cancers if the reactors keep spurting shit into the atmosphere...

Yes, bouncing back is gonna be pretty tough- they were already in the economic hole- 200% of GDP, I heard.

What makes the economic impact of all this worse is the total loss of at least those two nuclear reactors- the heroic and desperate decision to cool them with seawater means that they'll never be operational again. Someone on NPR was saying that might cost them as much 7% of their overall energy production, which means more inporting and more debt.

seriously, the radiation from the plants north of tokyo are raising the city's rad levels? o.O

looking these pics makes me wonder, could you even build dykes to protect inland structures? could the damage we see even been prevented or at least lessened?

I sorta doubt it- it's not just the oncoming water that does the damage but all the debris being washed inland from the coast.

Some lucky 70 year old woman stayed in her house and was rescued- search teams found her house (what was left of it) a mile inland.
That's a crazy amount of directed energy.

What i wonder is if there were warning signs that may have been followed- we know there was a "pre-quake" of about a 4, but people assumed that was the whole thing.
Maybe there's a way to determine the difference between an isolated event and the begining of something huge.

I also wonder of all the animals hot the hell out of dodge beforehand?

Moron.
Massive deathtolls, children's deaths or pregnant women's death's are never funny.
A couple of his Tewwt examples:

Damn near anything else goes, but once that threshold is crossed...the media will make an example.
Yes...this mmight just be it- that indefinable something for the press (and their viewers) to fixate on instead of the horror of the situation.

Okay...this is bad.
Workers evacuated from Japanese Nuclear Reactor.

Yeah...I think this is going to go "total failure" and they know it- why else remove the brave workers trying desperately to cool the reactor?

Also, I give you... the Japanese Pat Robertson.

"Japanese politics is tainted with egoism and populism," Ishihara had said Monday, according to Kyodo News. "We need to use tsunami to wipe out egoism, which has rusted onto the mentality of Japanese over a long period of time."
A stupid statement, but hardly Robertsonesque.
