    Contrast this to the son of a woman in New Orleans during Katrina, who complained that no one went to get his mother before the storm hit.

    Don`t we all have a short-list of people we would risk our lives for? I do. If there is no one on your list I feel very sorry for you.

    On the other hand, I wonder who would risk their life for me? hmmmmmmmm That`s going to keep me up all night.

    Oh my god, it`s some kind of monster from the deep, coming to drag me down to the depths of the ocean! (In Japanese of course)

    In Japan? It could have been a sexual tentacle bent on rape, it could have been a ninja also bent on rape ... but it was her husband.

    Go figure.

    Kudos to this man. Thank God they didn`t prevent him from going. I remember a story where police prevented a guy from going back into his own burning house to save his kid. That is completely insane.

    hm, if that guy really exists, kudos to him.

    i`ve googled him in japanese, though, and the only links i found were japanese references to reports in the la times and forbes (e.g. here).

    given that the japanese media love these kind of stories, it makes me very suspicious that there no genuine japanese reports.

    i also don`t want to dampen your spirits and destroy a nice heroic story, but we`re not talking `be brave and take a dive, do some swimming and scuba diving` here. jumping into the waters during the tsunami with all the debris in there is close to certain suicide. you`ve all seen pictures, haven`t you?!

    That reminded me of Tsutomu Yamaguchi who survived both WW II atomic bombs.

    *dude pops up out of the water into air pocket*
    Dude: "Tadaima (I`m home.)"
    Wife: "Okaeri nasai (*extra polite: Welcome home.)"
    Dude: "Such a mess. Did you leave the bath running? I can`t find the table to place my keys. Can I have a sandwich?"
    Wife: "It`ll be a bit damp but, I`ll see what I can do."
    Dude: "This place is looking a bit run down. We should move."
    Wife: "I`m with you."
    Dude: "I know: We should go to a hot spring!"
    Wife: "Jackass..."

    yeah cool story and all but i hate how these things are written. "faith in humanity" is a completely overused phrase and it just reeks of snobbery like it wants to insult the reader - "what have you done today lazy git?" i blame buzzfeed
