Ever get the feeling you're creating reality in your mind?
This whole thing has been making me feel like we're in the Matrix, and I've never even seen that movie. This whole thing has got to be some bad dream.

Yes, you have a point there. But the history of Japanese Culture goes back 10,000 years with inhabitants of Japan rumored to have come from China and Korea. What I think will happen is that the Japanese who survive this calamity may move to other lands and mix with people from other cultures, but the Japanese culture will remain (?)
It's a longshot, but I hope this does happen.

Alright, this is my first post in the thread and I must admit to having more than a couple of drinks this evening, however:
It seems logical that if humanity faces a problem that can't be properly adressed from one estate alone.... That it becomes an issue of international security...
What my drunken ass is trying to say is that I'm pissed the ffffk off that international agencies and other highly influential countries didn't step it up from the get go.
It seemed totally logical that this would have been tbs case from day one, but ... We don't live in a sane world.
Tamara Kruglikova waited days for Soviet officials to announce the Chernobyl nuclear disaster about 140 kilometers (87 miles) from her home. Hiroshi Ishikawa posts radiation levels every 30 seconds online to supplement Japanese government reports on the fallout from Fukushima.
On April 26, 1986, as Chernobyl’s ruptured reactor spewed radiation into the air, children in Kruglikova’s city of Gomel played outdoors and adults prepared for May 1 rallies. The one curiosity was why the mud turned an orange-yellow color after it drizzled, she said in a telephone interview from Gomel.
“The Japanese cannot even imagine what ignorance we lived in,” said Kruglikova, a 60-year-old literature teacher. “Everything we knew at first was basically just rumor, but many people trusted the official line.”

"Partial meltdown" is realisticaly the equivalent of "Slightly Pregnant"!
Perhaps they mean that the fuel rods have only partially melted?
