I read 2 plants are having cooling problems and 1 is leaking

I would have to say this is the worst disaster ever!

To put it to scale
"Quake moved Japan coast 8 feet; shifted Earth's axis(by 4 inches)"

I wonder if that is going to fuck with the weather. That shit just literally rocked the world!

It's a freaking media circus over the nuclear thing. You'd think the city blew up or something.

It is a media circus both here and in Japan (my wife is japanese and has been following the news). Unfortunately, the media does not know what the hell it is talking about most of the time about the nuclear power plant crisis.

For acurate info bypass the media all together and go to the IAEA website.

I see
the one time I needed the media to give me updated current news real quick and I should have known it was fucking shit.
From the IAEA web site.
"Japanese authorities have informed the IAEA that engineers have begun to lay an external grid power line cable to Unit. They plan to reconnect power to Unit 2 once the spraying of water on the Unit 3 reactor building is completed."
"The current situation at Units 1, 2 and 3, whose cores have suffered damage, appears to be relatively stable. Sea water is being injected into all three Units using fire extinguishing hoses. Containment pressures are fluctuating."
So shit is not bad, but at the moment not getting better, but probability, as these projects continue, will be later.

Then what about the loss of life. Now I don't know how much bullshit there is, but about 10000 people are gone? 1/2 dead the others are just not found. That's a bunch of people! I am just waiting for important names to be listed in the news. Out of one of those people someone has to be famous!

Buddy, my wife is Japanese and she and my kids just missed the earthquake by 4 days. Her family is still over there. I get to hear about the food shortages, gas shortages, terribleness every day.

I was not talking about the horrendousness of what happened. Fortunately, Japan was as prepared as it was. What i was talking about was the bullshit circus about the Nuclear power plant. It is not good but not as bad as the hysteria the media paints.
