That's strange considering they're much more calm when Godzilla attacks.

That's because the Sentai teams are ready to jump at Godzilla.

You think brightly-coloured jumpsuits are rad-proof?.

That is still *so* closer to coping than I can possibly imagine under the circumstances.

And this is why you try to plan for disasters before they happen.

I would certainly hope so. Godzilla's got nuclear breath. I have to think that's a lot of rads being put out.

Come to think of it, the clean-up after one of his rampages must be a stone biatch for more reasons than just the wreckage.

If they did not stoop to the level of bashing each others brains in and scooping out the wonderful edible fruit, then I think they coped quite well. I dont think I could have controled myself.

It was a plot-point in a recent movie that although Godzilla had been destroyed (cut to image of a heart beating on the floor of Tokyo harbour...), the guy that killed the monster had been so irradiated that his daughter couldn't go near him.

I've just ordered an empty cardboard box from Chernobyl Fukushima.

It was the cheapest microwave I could find.


Ukraine Japan announced plans to open Chernobyl Fukushima, their nuclear disaster site, to tourists.

They say it's just like Disneyland, except the 6-foot mouse is real.



Recycled jokes, the true Fukushima disaster.

I lived in Japan during the early 90's and that statement is as panic filled as I've ever heard a Japanese official get. They take pride in being as unflapable as possible and go out of their way to downplay dangers so they don't create any "unnecesary" panic. To me a statement like this from a Japanese official is the equivalent of an American nuclear official running around screaming "Kiss your asses goodbye; We're all gonna die"

Are they still storing the spent nuclear fuel in plastic barrels on the ground at Fukushima?

Fallout: Japan.
