Japanese nuclear plant crisis vs. sushi

M: about that Japanese nuclear plant, the things get serious now. same threat level of Chernobyl now.
U: yes…it turned into a big mess
M: maybe you will dream it tonight.
U: i hope not
U: i hope i don’t end up eating sushi with radiation
M: sushi isn’t good really. I had read a posting with photos long ago
M: but it gave me a deep impression.
M: Sushi isn’t cooked, right?
U: correct
M: some insects that live on that fish are still alive
M: then they will enter the human’s body and live there.
U: that is true with all food
M: On that posting, those insects entered that man’s brain and lived there.
U: so…you mean worms will eat my brian?
M: he felt headache and at last died of it. I feel so uncomfortable now since I think of that potato.
U: what potato
M: * photo
U: oh
U: well…we are all going to die anyway
U: better to die from sushi at age 80 than to die in a car crash at age 44

Those 181 workers from Japan Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant are heroes??

M: do you remember those employees who stayed to rescue that Japanese nuclear plant and we said heros?
U: yes
M: I have a second thought.
M: The things are not that simple. They are heros for their company for sure. But they are not saving the world.
M: If they just pour cement to end that plant, then the world will be safe. Now, most of the mainland of China have found the radition materials.
M: South Korea too.
M: That plant is threatening its neighbours. Maybe it’s better to end it soon instead of saving that plant to save those investors’ money.
U: they should have used the chernobyl method by now

T-shirt and Japan relief

U: the link
U: we are selling a ton of these now
M: nice T-shirts
M: which one is that you designed?
U: http://www.cafepress.com/+japan_relief_shirt,515861952
M: very nice. that’s Japanese words or Chinese characters?
U: It should be japanese
U: i was told to put those on the design
M: oh, same as Chinese characters
U: really
U: what does it say in Chinese
M: yeah. same meaning also, I think. It means hope too in Chinese characters.  The pronounciation is “xi wang”
U: “hope for japan” is what i was told it means
M: those two words mean “hope”
U: the characters say hope
U: and the “map’ is of japan
M: I think it should prounce different from Chinese words.
M: very nice image in the whole. nice color too.
U: just a cut  out from a map
M: :)
U: and overlay of the japanese battle flag….(the sun rays) laying over the japan image
U: blending with almost the same color red
U: i made it in 30 minites
U: it was an emergency
M: oh, I can’t see the flag.
U: they needed it right away
M: for some activity, maybe
U: http://shop.cafepress.com/japan-relief
U: LOOK CLOSE at the image on the left
U: see the darker red sun rays
M: oh, I see it.
M: it has some lines
M: good idea
U: yes….thats the sun rays from the flag
M: in fact, I dislike Japanese battle flag
M: 😉
U: but the flag in transparent except when over the map of japan
M: I understand.
U: i can understand your dislike
U: but its a cool looking flag
M: oh, it has been printed by the blood of a lot of  innocent people.
U: the lines are thinned and modified
U: all flags are!
M: Americans too? with the victims’ blood?
U: yes yes yes…i know
U: i know all about it
U: but its 2011
M: Chinese flag too.
U: and japan had an earthquake and nuclear error
U: and i wanted to give it some style
M: that’s for humanitarian.
U: and my bosses wanted to take advantage and make a quick profit
U: exploiting the tradgedy
M: 😛
U: so…there it is
M: if I post this conversation online, your boss will be pissed off?
U: no
U: i already told them my thoughts
U: let me show you the difference
M: ok
 *** U sent Imperial_flag.png ***

U: Flag you hate….(old flag)
U: New flag
 *** U sent Modern_flag.png ***

U: see the difference
U: anyway….there was big rush to get on the website as soon as possible
M: my computer is slow, I’m opening them.
U: to try and be the first
U: and i was surprised at how many they sold in one day….17,000
M: wow, so many?
U: yes
U: crazy
U: like christmas
M: the people who bought it must think they are helping Japanese.
U: some of the cost is going to a relief fund
U: i should tell you that
U: its not all for profit
M: I guess so.
U: but…there is still some profit
M: sure.
U: the people in my business love disasters
M: A lot of people do things like it.
M: :)
U: because people wear t-shirts to show support

“I think they (Japanese) want to try and save this nuclear plant”

M: I heard that, 450 U.S. millitary stuff has gone to Japan and they said that they could handle from monitor to control. is it real?
U: i don’t know…i suppose not actually being there I would have to rely on reliable information
M: I think by “control” here, it should be pouring cement etc. Japanese can do so too. right?
U: that is what they did at Chernobyl….it disable the plant forever
U: i think they want to try and save this nuclear plant
U: but as a last resort they might have to disable it
M: oh, they still want to save it. if they just bury it at the beginning, things should be easy. right?
M: it’s said that several workers have died already.
U: really…i have heard the same…but the claim is that none died of radiation
U: most likely from the explosions
M: oh, that manager of nuclear plant had admitted that the radiation can kill people.
M: so hard situation
U: yes…but here is how japanese children are told about what is going on
U:http://www.salon.com/entertainment/tv/feature/2011/03/17/japan_cartoon_nuclear_crisis/index.html
U: i’m not sure if this is a joke or serious
M: they try to make children understand it
U: i suppose…the poo and farting parts will definitely get a childs attention
M: I can’t understand Japanese and their culture.
U: it seems to me that the japanese make it an artform of going to the bathroom
M: maybe
U: from seeing japanese AV…i think its true
M: oh, it seems that understanding Japanese needs to start from seeing it AV
M: for adults.
M: for kids, from bathroom
U: it can be thought of as very creative form of expressing understanding
M: sounds that at least you quite enjoy about it. 😛
U: its better than watching rice farming technique videos
M: oh,
M: good for u
U: there are some that use excellent After Effects techniques….for my creative education purposes of course
M: oh, I show you some papercuts and you pick one you like most to me. ok?
U: ok

U: time to understand Chinese culture instead of japanese
