Could the same be said if natural disaster struck here?

    I cannot imagine what it must be like over there right now. Any suggested charitable organizations to donate to?
    Well, it could be due to their culture, or it could be due to the borderline apocalyptic nature of the storm. My money is both.

    Seconded about the organization.

    They are having blackouts all over the country. We are having ours from 13:30 until 17:30. Don't know how many days that will last. The gas stations have no gas left. And I am a way away from the centre of the quake. Lots of businesses are closed because of the blackouts.

    Hope you stocked up like A LOT. Since I've been reading that store shelves have practically been cleaned.

    Yeah well, I'm human first; nationality is further on down the list. Getting it the other way around has always been a mystery to me... a world where birthright is more relevant than species and children are more important than people? It's a bizarre mentality.

    Yeah, I haven't been shopping. But my wife said there is no bread and milk, stuff like that. And the shops are packed.

    It never really ends in Japan. They have 1,300 noticeable earthquakes per year.
