    RE: Natural Disasters in Japan

    Because Japan were atheist? They are not atheist, they simply have a totally different belief system! Believing in different gods/deities/spirits doesn't mean anything.

    Seriously reminds me of the chatango guy who wished that my family and I would be blown to smiterines since I'm atheist. Goes against what the bible says.

    Since I have no money to donate, I'm gonna be organizing a bake sale with all the proceeds going to the disaster. That's all waht I can do.

    RE: Natural Disasters in Japan

    She believed whoever didn't believe in her god was an atheist. Still, it's sad to watch. There needs to be some kind of morality test or something for religion that tests them whether or not they will become batshit insane enough to push their beliefs onto others, or wish them ill will to those who don't believe in their god.

    I want to donate, but I have little money on my bank account to live on. I'll probably have to do some work sometime this month, and if I do get paid, I'll donate somewhere.

    RE: Natural Disasters in Japan

    It turns out the person in the previous video was just being a troll which I think is just as bad, she shouldn't have said that, joking or not.

    There is also another video of someone who thinks their quiet time for studying is more important than people ringing to check if their family members are ok.

    It is really quite sad to see people reacting in such a selfish manner to such a tragic event.

    RE: Natural Disasters in Japan

    Wow, even for a troll attempt that's a little too far. As for general ignorance, when I was stuck in my flat's kitchen yesterday with my three manchild flatmates, they were discussing Cardcaptors and Digimon. (I can understand talking about watching it as kids, but they still seek out and watch the new series.) One of them expressed how disappointed and angry he was when Cardcaptors was taken off the air on September the 11th. Seriously, what the fuck? At a guess he must have been about 13-15 at the time.

    I'm surrounded by inconsiderate manchildren and I look forward to moving out. But back onto the topic of Japan, it's amazing how it got shifted about fourteen feet. I hear they're currently testing food for radioactivity levels. O_o

    RE: Natural Disasters in Japan

    ... I still seek those out...

    Though I typically state that with an added "cause I'm sad and have no life"

    As to that troll - seriously, it's been estimated that the death toll for this seriers of disasters will be at least 10,000. You don't joke about something that big.

    I was on the way home from school when this unfolded; I was 14 years old and had just finished my Technology project. My friend kept stopping to watch everything happening live on the TV sets down the high street while I just wanted to get home and have something to eat while not doing homework. I would have to drag him away each and every time we passed an electronics store. And there were a lot of them scattered around back then.

    Selfish? Perhaps. But I was 14, and I was damn hungry.

    RE: Natural Disasters in Japan

    Well, at least you weren't mad at the whole catastrophe because of Cardcaptors. As for the show itself, it's not as bad to watch it if you do watch more... "adult" anime as well. By that, I don't mean hentai. Outlaw Star is more of a teenager's anime, but it has a lot of references that are more adult in nature. Watching anime that isn't made for little girls, in other words, is what I mean. On the other hand, one of these guys won't shut up about Digimon, Cardcaptors and Kingdom Hearts, and starts disrespectfully yawning if I try to mention any kind of anime for an older audience. I've given up on talking to him altogether. I was also told "The King's Speech" was too adult and my invitation to go to the cinema was rejected, unless we were to watch something for a younger audience, like Tron. Manchildren indeed.

    Apologies, though! That's very off-topic, and should probably be in the pet peeves thread.

    On-topic: I listed a bunch of items on eBay today and I'm giving 15% for each final sale to the Japan fund. It doesn't sound like much, but I'm hardly making a profit on these items as it is, and I've already donated to Japan so I'm selling these to get me out of a potentially dangerous bank situation. Still, figured I'd chip in a bit more.

    RE: Natural Disasters in Japan

    You have to admire the fact that the citizens have shown remarkable resilience to the whole ordeal so far and managed to stay completely civilised. If this happened to almost any other developed country, the streets would have been rife with looting and other "quick while the cops are occupied" crimes.

    Also, I've been receiving reams of those 'joke' texts about this on my 'phone, and for the most part they are largely completely unfunny and just plain forced... although I have to put my hands up and admit one did actually make me laugh.

    RE: Natural Disasters in Japan

    The only one I've laughed at has been "Earthquake and a tsunami... They just need an eruption and a hurricane and they'll have the set" But then it was very dryly said, more like a disbelief thing and trying to make it a bit lighter.

    And it's because of cultures. Japan lives on order, and strongly believe that disorder would equal chaos and loads of people would die. And to be fair, it was only after the disasters had passed that those things started, rarely during, so it's typically an angry outcry for being neglected and lack of action by those in charge
