Maybe it's just because I feel more connected with Japan and its inhabitants that I can't understand how they are able to laugh with something terrible as this.
In all honestly I think it doesn't matter if you feel more connected to the country, everyone I know has been blown away and heartbroken by what's happened in Japan, regardless of whether they know anything about the country.
After everything that's happened, I sincerely hope that Japan doesn't suffer a nuclear disaster. At the moment it doesn't look promising, and I hope everyone there is able to stay as safe as they can.
(This is the first time I've been back in a while actually, I was curious to know if there was a special dedicated thread to it).
