i looked 5 pages back to see if this was a recent repost. sorry if it is.



This is Hideaki Akaiwa. When the Tsunami hit his home town of Ishinomaki, Hideaki was at work. Realising his wife was trapped in their home, he ignored the advice of professionals, who told him to wait for the army to arrive to provide search and rescue.

Instead he found some scuba gear, jumped in the raging torrent - dodging cars, houses and other debris being dragged around by the powerful current, any of which could have killed him instantly - and navigated the now submerged streets in pitch dark, freezing water until he found his house. Swimming inside, he discovered his wife alive on the upper level with only a small amount of breathing room, and sharing his respirator, pulled her out to safety.

If he had waited for the army, his wife of 20 years would be dead.

Oh, and if that’s not enough badassery for one lifetime, Hideaki realised his mother was also unaccounted for, so jumped back in the water and managed to save her life also. Since then Hideaki enters the water everyday on a one man search and rescue mission, saving countless lives and proving that two natural disasters in a single day, and insurmountable odds can’t stand in the way of love. This man is my hero.

Levels of radioactive iodine in tap water at a water treatment center in downtown Tokyo that supplies much of the city's tap water contained 210 becquerels per liter of iodine-131, officials from the Tokyo Water Bureau said at a news conference.

That amount is more than twice the recommended limit of 100 becquerels per liter for infants, the most vulnerable segment of the population. Babies in Tokyo should not be fed tap water although the level is not an immediate health risk for adults, officials said.

As dark that the humor was, it is actually quite true.

I thought a major quake like the Japan one was supposed to relieve tectonic pressure. That freaking blows.

There are earthquakes all over the place all the time. To even mention earthquakes in Taiwan and Myanmar in this thread is borderline trolling. Take it to the 2012 thread.

I doubt the relative plates are directly connected. There's also the concept that a quake in one area can cause another fault to release its building pressure before it builds enough to rupture on its own.

I would pay good money to see a bareknuckle rumble between all the annoying bitches in media, like Bill O'Reilly, Nancy Grace, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, etc... All of them can get nice and bloodied, and it doesn't matter who wins the match.
