From the article comments:

We can thanks the psycopath Israel for the world being on a knife edge, search, 'Jim stone, Fukushima'... They have brought us to the closest we have ever been to extinction as a punishment as Japan was enriching uranium for Iran... Reactor 4 could not have exploded like that without external force because the reactor was empty! It is like 9-11 building 7! It is a matter of time before that spent fuel in the pool is comprimised and even once it is out, we are far from safe! Israel out of their madness may have killed even themselves because they are deranged murderers! God bless us all...

How much do you have to hate the Jews to try to pin a tsunami on them?

5.3 is nothing. Wake me when they hit 7, otherwise don't bother.

Going by the history of the region, lots of smaller earthquakes are going to hit and very likely another fairly large earthquake and tsunami (not AS large, but large) within 100 years, with a fair chance of it coming within 50. There were also major earthquakes and tsunami in 1896 and 1933, along with a merely strong earthquake in 1978, so I can make this prediction pretty safely. This is not counting the other ones in 1994, 2003, and 2005.

Incidentally, the reason Japan has nukes out in the sticks like Fukushima and Niigata is because they KNEW there was a distinct possibility for problems and wanted them to be away from major population centers like Tokyo.

Seriously, nuclear power is farking stupid. I have come to think there is no "smart" way to "have it all", but nuclear power is just hubris in action (we can "tame the atom"!). Fossil fuels are willful ignorance in action, as seen by my climate change denier PHYSICIST roommate (they aren't dirty or destroying our environment, and it's totally worth it no matter how bad things get!).

rickythepenguin: wow.  Joe Rogan just asked this question on the Mac Lethal podcast from maybe 3-4 days ago:  "what if an earthquake hits Fukushima?  we're already farked, but what would another earthquake or tsunami do?"

Well, if one of the spent-fuel pools collapses (#4 being the most likely), you could suddenly have energy "too cheap to meter."

"No radiation leak was detected."

Probably because their radiation detectors were already spiked.

"The epicenter was 20 km beneath the surface on the Pacific coast but only around 50 miles from the Fukushima plant."

OK; first... That's not close enough to say "at Fukushima". Second, who the f*ck uses kilometers for depth and miles surface distance in the same sentence?!

Old_Chief_Scott: After reading the comments attached to that article, we need to turn this thread into a contest to try and top them.

Only Pocket Ninja or maybe Mike_LOwell could hope to top some of those. And PN has already given us an amazing gem (one of his best ever) in another thread.

SurfaceTension: I have a hypothesis...

I think the big earthquake actually folded a piece of the crust of the plate on which Japan sits underneath Japan. That would explain the shifts, both horizontally and vertically, of the island. I think the almost constant earthquakes in that area since then are a result of this big piece of crust getting pushed under the rest of the plate and ground down. Once it passes, I wouldn't be shocked if that part of the crust (including Japan) sinks a significant amount into the ocean. It doesn't bode well, obviously.

That's one theory...
