Instead of watching the Raiders second string getting pummeled by New Orleans, I tuned to the Discovery Channel to see something more enlightening. A show called Megaquake. It describes the beating Japan took from the March earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown. It’s awesome. It lets us know the Pacific is a giant bathtub.
They interviewed a firefighter from Tokyo, Yukio Takayama, who was assigned to MANUALLY cool the collapsed #3 reactor with fire fighting equipment. The guy says how frightened he was but his sense of duty counteracted the fear.
I’m thinking while watching this, what a total bad ass Yukio is; on the bad ass scale of 1 (Bernie Madoff) to 10 (dude who shot Bin Ladin), he rated 54.
I just wanted to share that with you.
