Japan has stood for a long time. There are temples here and castles which are 1200 years old. Tokyo got bombed to nothing in WW2, otherwise there
would be older structures in Tokyo too. Japan is not continually shaken back to the stone age, if it were it would not be the advanced prosperous
place it is. Quakes like the one in March are and remain very rare. That is a fact.
Everyone who lives here can feel that there are a lot of quakes after that huge quake. We know this. We know, we live with the fact and always have
lived with the fact that Tokyo is over due a big quake. It is a fact of life. Japan builds for this, prepares for it as best we can.
The nuclear issue, the government should have emptied Fukushima right at the start. They didnt, and that is on their conscience. Tokyo however, is not
`highly irradiated` at the moment. We are far enough away that whilst it is nerve wracking, this is not the `last chance` to get out, nor was it over
a month ago when you predicted wrongly that Tokyo would be reduced to rubble.
I have not asked ANYONE to help me, apart from my family. I want nothing from anyone nor have I asked, and Im offended you made out like I did.
I have no problem with you saying `I think Tokyo is going to get shaken`, I do too, just I dont think I can say WHEN, I also think that my apartment
is strong enough to withstand it, and I have a good evac plan and am well equipped. It is the WAY you said it. You do realise people have children,
moving like that needs MONEY, a lot of it, when you have a family, and you need a job and somewhere to go to? The super rich who can go at a moments
notice are gone, unless they have work commitments here.
Mimicking a TOkyo mother trying to comfort her child, and mocking that person and their situation will NOT win you any friends, and people here will
nto listen to you after that. Try putting your ideas forward with no sensationalism, a bit of humility and a little bit of calm, then maybe you would
not get people`s backs up against you.
You are not going to burn in hell for trying to help, but try to help if that is what you want to do, do not propagate fear in a sensationalist way.
Have a bit of humility for mother nature. You dont know when the big one will be, noone does right now.
Thing is, if people are going to use their precious resources to run, titles like `last chance` are going to upset and panic people. Call the thread
`Im concerned that Tokyo is going to get a big quake=
