    Inconceivable. Too sad. Really difficult news, just had to switch off and get on with the day.

    @Ppap: The co-pilot is recorded breathing naturally and normally all the way to the point where they murdered 149 people.

    This 'man' needs to spend a much longer time incarcerated for this heinous crime.

    Thing is, that the US measuring system is only a veneer of how science measures: Metric. How is a lb. defined, through a % of a kilo, which in turn is the international standard of weight kept in a vault in Paris.

    Pound (mass) = 0.45359237 Kilograms . Pound (force) = 0.45359237 Kilograms * 9.80665 m/s2 (Gravity) So, long story short : Pound always refers to kilograms - And it doesn't matter whether you're talking about Pound (Force) or Pound (Mass) .

    Suck it up America!

    @Veejay: We left because we assessed the situation as dangerous. I took my young family out of Japan on March 14th, had left Tokyo to West Japan on the 12th, after Unit 1 exploded. Once Unit 3 went. Bye.

    We stayed out of Japan proper for 2 months, and have moved away from Kanto. Our choice, respect it. No one squealed. We respect yours, if you were even in Japan then and decided to stay wherever it is you live / exist.

    “Though global safety standards kept on improving, we wasted our time coming up with excuses for why Japan didn’t need to bother meeting them.” Madarame Haruki, Chairman, Nuclear Safety Commission, Diet testimony, 2/15/12

    QED.

    @Cleo: Yeah, right. No, it was very gender and character attribute specific. There are feckless mothers and murdering grandmothers, just as there are the male equivalents.

    @Panbellend: TEPCO didn't even begin to admit the truth about the meltdowns --read melt throughs-- until the middle of May.

    @Mike: Reactors? WHAT reactors? Unit 1, 2 and 3 have nothing that resembles a reactor contained within their units anymore. There is no apparatus in which a nuclear-fission chain reaction can be sustained and controlled, for generating heat or producing useful radiation in those buildings.

    @Panbellend: We knew where the reactors were, mostly in the air as a plume blowing in the wind.

    Edna said there has been no radiant release and there will be no release of radiation. He also had the classic, there are no immediate detrimental health effects.

    @Stranger: I disagree, anyone is undoubtably whole from each, two wholes, not two halves. Your children don't know half a cultural aspect from each contribution but the whole, again, it's not how it is used or received in Japan and by the Japanese, but internationally, "haafu" as the now dated and inappropriate half-cast is another way to divide, a 'us and them' soundbite, that categorises 'others' as different. Nationalities are a human abstract, so defining yourself as such immediately restricts your definition, we can be more than that. Just look at Miss Universe.

    Ms Miyamoto, you go kick some butt young lady. Well done.

    Haafu? From the waist down or up? Left side or right? While the Japanese, on the whole --pardon the pun-- seemingly use the awful 'haafu' with no malicious intent, if they are going to use a katana-ized foreign word to describe something attributed to people they should be aware of its negative connotations. Half? Half of what? AS Sab wrote double, is much more positive, for a start.

    Japan's corner is getting sharper, deeper and darker. If you leave it too late to change the angle of escape it will close snap shut. Flatlined. Stop feeding those that don't care with our money.

    @Tessa, plenty of Japanese own have breasts that create cleavage. Don't kid yourself, and they go up, pert, when released not down to the ground. There's a truth to chew on.

    Some transplanted tissues have been printed off and used, colon and there too, only matter of time until functioning organs can be printed too. Science, hurrah!

    @Penfold, why, stuck to the spot via the weight they carry from the subsidies they stuff their pockets with. Our taxes. That's where the nuke industry is, fat and rich, not moving an inch.

    As some have mention Robert McNamara was haunted by what transpired, and Le May and his British equivalent Harris would have been tried for crimes against humanity if they'd lost. If you haven't, see The Fog of War.

    A sentiment that is laughed at and sneered at by many, but, hey, IMAGINE...

    Peace.

    The special forces now have a name, a face and an identity that allows them to eventually find their target. Happy Days. The time for this regional psychosis to end was before it even started, the Arab Nation needs to step up and put boots on the ground. NOW.

    Nuclear power is not an inevitable feature of energy supply systems. It has many attractive characteristics, but also a unique combination of problems, including military connections, problems of civil liberties, of safety and environment, of regard for future generations and, above all, of deteriorating economy. It's the most expensive, dangerous and damn right stupidest thing the baby-boomers got excited about.

    Then, added into the mix are the lies, deceit, obfuscation and the Apologist Clowns, its the funniest circus in town.

    4 years and counting, nuclear free and fancy... safe.
