I lost my faith in humanity. No offense to anyone.

No. If you don't go to wear the earthquake hit, then its fine.

Yeah. It depends on mode of travel, what one does, what time one does it and who's present for each of these things, too.

They told me that long ago. I told 'them' it was necessary. I was wrong.

Japan isn't real. its a hoax that manga, anime, hentai, ninja, sumo and video game businesses invented. If you know anyone who claims to be from Japan or visited Japan, they are a Squaresoft employee.

I'm glad they made it. That was rather a rather emotional thing. Given their track record of large scale bad events, if a giant sea monster emerges off shore I won't even be surprised. Wait, it did and it was a previously unseen squid. Nvmd.

The terror of thinking that my friend that went to live and worked there after college stepped off perception and into nothing. The added terror of wondering who still calls me if she is in fact unreachable. Assuming the two worst probabilities, her echoing scream that occurred as she sucked into herself and popped out of reality for the silly attempt to move to No Japan, or she's now employed by Squaresoft...

@Vengance101: You do ask a VERY valid question. They don't seem to talk about that as much as they used to. I surmise that everything is fine and they're back on their way to the top. Or at least that's what they want you to believe. Fact of the matter is, the plebians we never be allowed to be told what the "real" situation is.

it's that I read on the news a reporter said it was safe there, and ate some food 6 months later he died of cancer.......

Not if there is Godzilla.

If it's not the United States, then it's got to be Japan. But seriously, you're likely to die faster anywhere else than in Japan.

Absolutely. and the Godzilla threat too.

I think it should be fine, if it was any worse i think we would've heard something about it in the news. The only things I've been hearing is how it is still ok to go to Japan and help them since tourism is something they need.

During court proceedings concerning a radioactive golf course, Tokyo Electric Power Co. stunned lawyers by saying the utility was not responsible for decontamination because it no longer "owned" the radioactive substances.

“Radioactive materials (such as cesium) that scattered and fell from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant belong to individual landowners there, not TEPCO,” the utility said.

That argument did not sit well with the companies that own and operate the Sunfield Nihonmatsu Golf Club, just 45 kilometers west of the stricken TEPCO plant in Fukushima Prefecture.

The Tokyo District Court also rejected that idea.

But in a ruling described as inconsistent by lawyers, the court essentially freed TEPCO from responsibility for decontamination work, saying the cleanup efforts should be done by the central and local governments.

Although the legal battle has moved to a higher court, observers said that if the district court’s decision stands and becomes a precedent, local governments' coffers could be drained.
Step 1) Corporation says "It's not our problem".
Step 2) Courts Rule that the government will clean up.
Step 3) Taxpayers foot the bill.

By dangerous you mean student-themed scantily-clad "timid" chick women would be "radiating" all over you? Yes... It's very dangerous.

I guess curiosity bumped up this thread. Just in case people are not aware, the Fukashima Plants are still in critical condition. They even said that the Melted core found its way buried in the Earth under the reactor. Let's just hope for the best.
