    Japan is my favorite azn country. The people there are the most evolved in etiquette and self discipline. All the really weird poo they do is because of western influence.

    If it were the USA, the cleanup effort would have been delayed by permit applications, required vendor bidding, environmental impact reports....

    I`m not aware of all the crap IAB gives Japan, it seems like every time I turn around someone here is giving the Japanese the proverbial B.J. Whether it be outright or in a snarky subtle way.

    The wave did not get up that high dude. if you acually watch the video of this exact street getting torn apart, the water got about 20 feet up, not nearly high enough to kill those trees.

    I really hope you do not grow up with that belief. Women and men can do each job.

    If you dont believe that, then enjoy spitting out babies and carting them off to the Nike factory so that you have more time to cook and clean..

    ...and spit out more babies...

    now, lets go see how the south looks 6 years after Katrina...



    This is a historic house in Biloxi. As in this is a landmark, and is pretty much gaurenteed to get FEMA funds for rebuilding. Which it is. 5 years after Katrina. This isn`t mentioning all the other deserted homes and rubble still piled up in places all over. It is really sad.

    "This isn`t mentioning all the other deserted homes and rubble still piled up in places all over. It is really sad."

    tn11, stick to what you know. I see you live in the western US but think you are all about the south. I live in Biloxi and your comment above shows your ignorance. I haven`t seen deserted homes or piles of rubble in at least a couple of years. Near the water you can still find some slab foundations from homes that have not been rebuilt but overall the recovery in Mississippi has gone rather well. Remember over 20,000 homes were destroyed in Mississippi from Katrina.

    Also, a picture of one street in Japan with the rubble removed does not mean that Japan has fully recovered. Japan has a long road still ahead of them and to insinuate otherwise is an insult to the people still struggling after their horrendous disaster.

    This is relatively easy to tidy up. The two problems Japan has are short term where to put all this stuff they remove and long term what the hell to do (if anything can be done) about fudgeushima.

    Japan is generally good about disasters because they work hard and focus on making the future better. Place like New Orleans and Haiti are still poo because the people there are focused on the short term and don`t want to work to make their lives better.

    Don`t be fooled, people. The debris may largely have been cleared away, but new houses have not been built yet. There`s still thousands of people living in shelters and there`s still a shortage of just about everything from food to electricity. But they`re making good progress and the entire coutry is working together as one. :)
