I think I heard on the radio that Australia rejected entry to a Japanese ship this week because it had unacceptable levels of radiation. :-o

You guys see the video of the dog that was rescued from a debris field after being out at sea for 3 weeks? 8-o

Humans have a soft spot for animals in distress, i'm not surprised by the effort at all. Also, I think the fact that they found the dog alive gave rescuers some hope that a person may be alive in the debris as well. They did mention that the rescuers hoped the dog would lead them to it's owner.

National Geographic channel released a documentary type show on this disaster last night. I DVR'd it and am watching it now. Some of the footage of the tsunami defies description. It's like Old Testament Wrath of God.

I'm sure that image has some meaning associated with it. But I don't know what.

i know these things are deceptively strong, but this one still surprised me at how long it lasted (~7min) before it finally got crazy

i think i'd have been screaming like a little girl there near the end :-o :-o :-o
