That's the way the Japanese are informing children about the situation. It's weird like typical Japanese stuff, but also serious as well. No parent in Japan wants their children to freak out after all.

Nope, not at all.
One time when I was high, I thought I was in an ambulance dying. Turns out I was just eating sherbert.

I've kinda fallen out of the nuclear situation. Does anyone know what the status of those reactors are?

well when the hole thing started my sub contractor wondered why they didn't just bring some deisal pumps or some firetrucks in run a line up and cool the reactors that way. And I wondered why they didn't send some robots into the facility. Apparently a week after we talked about it they brought some firetrucks up and brought in some robots from massachusetts.

That must have been an aftershock considering that the warning was revoked.

The warning for the tsunami was revoked was because the earthquake didn't cause a tsunami. It's an aftershock but I don't see how that's at all related to a warning being rescinded.

That kinda makes me wish that Japan wasn't a volcanic island as well as being within the Pacific Ring of Fire.
