Well, as a gay guy, I don't really like saying this, but if I could, I'd like to push him back into the closet...

As a little trivia, you may know that the suprano area in "The Fifth Element" comes from this opera. You know the one that is sung by the blue lady.

Well, that's how I look with excessive jet lag, go I'm guessing it's jet lag. Well, I mean that's how I look but without the big dress.

I think if you look carefully, they are forming Japanese characters for "free us now!" Or it could be "we shall overcome". Depends on the angle.

"Also, unlike fossil fuels, nuclear energy is environmentally friendly." That is preposterous! What about the nuclear waste that has to be safely stored for thousands of years? Don't you realize what a disaster it would be if it leaked out? We are leaving our trash for future generations to take care of over thousands of years so we can enjoy our party now. We dont give a hoot about future generations. They can swim in our nuclear waste for all we care. Aren't we nice!!!

Japan is a great place to be when things are running smoothly, and things usually do run very smoothly. Not so when there is an accident or calimity of some kind. Take control! Save yourself! Don't wait for action by officials. Because calimity is rare, officials have no experience dealing with them.

SNL's expiration date passed about a decade ago. Taking TV show ideas from the US? The whole idea of "reality TV" was born in Japan back in the late 70s with Denpa Shonen ("Electrical Youths"?). Sending two guys from the tip of South America to Alaska or from Hong Kong to London (and getting caugut up in a civil war along the way - talk about reality) by hitchhiking.

Well, I'm such a pacifist, but if there happened to be a nice heavy crow bar in my hands and I saw him doing that, I would probably give him a skull breaking hit on the side of the head. No excuse.

Sorry, I meant to say "protect AGAINST radiation".
Posted in: Going back home
Actually, these suits do not "protect radiation". For that you need several centimeters of lead, which is not practical for clothing (although Lady Gaga would probably find a way). Their purpose is to protect the wearer from radioactive matter or particles from coming into direct contact with or adhering to the skin, where you could get radiation burns or maybe skin cancer in the future. Tht is all. Radiation itself can go right through the material itself. They really ought to be wearing lab glasses though.

Well, if they can do it to Sir Paul McCartney (who reportedly smoked a little before being sirred), then they can do it to this chap I have never heard of.

It is in English because this is meant for the foreign press, not the Chinese.

I just saw report of the visit on NHK. I was totally blown away. It was a great gesture and great that they visite the evacuation shelters.

I'm really impressed that the two leaders went directly to the earthquake zone. The symbolism is great.

So we are still waiting for advice from GE, who designed the plant (the GE Mark I). Would GE like to let us in on what should be done? Or maybe they don't know either. Remember that the three engineers who were supposed to sign off on the safety of the design quit instead and joined the anti-nuclear movement ("the GE three"). So tell us GE, what should we do?

OK, so I watched a view of JB on U-tube. Not my type of music, but OK I understand.

stevepfc, if his homophobic remarks are reported over here, he'll lose his fan base. boy-boy love is all the rage among his presumable almost entirely young female fan base. Just watch the latest smash hit anime 世界一初恋 (the worlds number 1 first love(?)). They'll abandon him like a hot potato.

I've never heard of him. Are there enough fans here to fill the Budokan?
