i look forward to part 3, in 24rs, of your series. maybe you'll actually talk about tokyo.
as a matter of fact, i don't even think you're in tokyo and you're trolling hard. this thread belongs in the hoax bin.edit on 18-3-2011 by randomname because: (no reason given)

To everyone who thought it would be clever to insult, attack, impolitely question, and otherwise engage in douchebaggery I would like to offer you my sincere condolences for being born as such giant anuses.
When so many are obviously appreciating and gaining insight from something that will not hurt anyone and could possibly help it is not prudent, polite or otherwise conducive to learning and growing as a person to engage in these behaviors. The only thing this could accomplish is similar to the little kid who doesn't like the other kids playing with a toy so he breaks it. Which is nothing at all.
Perhaps there was confusion? Was this an intellectual thread that would warrant this kind of critical questioning? ummm no!, was it a political statement that goes against your political beliefs? Some made it so but it wasn't.
This was a journaling of first hand experiences in an area many of us are intensely curious and concerned about at present. As such ALL of those responses which were not thanks or legitimate polite questions were not appropriate and ATS would be a better place if you were all banned. But you probably won't be because using discretion and being a decent human being is apparently not in the T&Cs.
Can you tell I'm irritated?

I've done nothing wrong. I pointed out the insensitive behavior of his posts and I was chewed out for it. How can you get so offended over what someone says but not be sad that all this has happened. That 11,000 people are dead. It just boggles the mind. Perhaps he's desensitized and blinded by whatever 'business' he has. Humans are worth more than a buck anyday.edit on 18-3-2011 by soaringhawk because: (no reason given)

Hang on a sec don't you think you should be aiming that at the people that once again derailed his thread with nitpicking?
Not at all, he knows what he did and it is blatantly obvious. He is trying to make us believe that the nitpicking is bad enough to keep him from letting the outside world know what is going on in the most devastated country that we have ever seen to date.
What a tool. I'd hate to have to interact with this guy on a professional level in the real world. I'd hate to have to interact with him on any level actually because you never know what might set him off. He is a tool of epic proportions for not being the bigger person. Yeah, he let the nitwits win. How easy was that for the nitwits? It really never was a fair fight, the nitwits had it in the bag from the get go.
So he had champagne.... So/ If it was available at the bar in the hotel he was staying at should he of stuck to water? What difference does that make to the fact that we could of asked him more pertinent questions?
What does that tell us about the champagne sipping, private luxury hotel staying, many amenities and money having silent thunder?
very obviously that was done to avoid us doubting where he was..... If he hadn't of done that (and actually even though he did) people would of been demanding exactly that sort of proof....
Really, taking pictures of scraps of paper with silent thunder written on them to prove he is where he says he is.
If he was really interested in showing us something he would've. Believe me, he has nothing to offer us here because he cannot get over himself. Its all about silent thunder you see not the tragedy.

Desensitized by what he's been exposed to in life. And how can you say I can't judge if I've never met them? I never met Hitler, I never met Stalin or Lenin. I've never met a bunch of people. It doesn't take meeting someone to call them out for what they are.
Now, we are supposed to be getting valuable information. He came here offering an 'inside look' to the situation. I am willing to over look the past & put it to rest.

Edit to add: I will check my U2Us for a few days to see if anyone is looking for specific loved ones in Japan or Tokyo. I will try to help you if I can, but I can gaurentee nothing. I will not respond to or read other U2Us. This will be for emergency and life-and-death issues only, please. Please don't abuse this.
Well, after three years, you've finally driven old silent thunder off ATS, at the point of his greatest need. I know I am overreacting but I'm not exactly in a normal frame of mind.
