Marauding mobs! (Japan earthquake)

filed under: journal  :: earthquake  :: japan

It's now the night of Day 4 of the earthquake in Japan, and I think we can all need to relieve some tension...especially in Japan. This is being retweeted around in Japanese Twitter circles now; being that Japanese is a more compact language all the links and headlines fit in one tweet, but that doesn't work for English. So here is it as a blog post.

The rough translation of the text is: "Mad rush for food. Fighting over scraps. Devastation after riot. Marauding gangs. Is this the reality of Japan? Do not look! DO NOT LOOK!





(doom....)





OK? So, here are the photos to go with those headlines!

"Mad rush for food!"

"Fights over scraps!"

"Devastation after riot!"

"Marauding gangs!"

Enjoy. Or not. At least it's better than that ridiculous panda photo (from 2006, from a zoo in Taiwan) floating around.
