There is lots of news everyday, all over the world, affecting many people. In some cases, news in one country will spill over to another, especially in terms of war, natural disasters and celebrities getting married/divorced/drunk.

To try and cover all of this, I hope that people will discuss the news within this thread to save clutter and to help those who may know little about a story find out more. If it is likely a story will lead to great debate, a debate topic may be a better idea, otherwise post what you think and know here so we may all know about the news from around the world.

Won't you feel so much better for that?

Silly stories may still go into the 'Crazy News' thread

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).

It already is a nuclear disaster, actually. But, fortunatelly, it'll be hard to turn into something worse than it already is. The nuclear technology nowadays is a lot better, so it won't become like a 2nd Chernobyl or something, thank god. Not that's not a big deal, but it's also not something we should panic about.
The good thing is that, since the Japanese are a very cautious people, they are taking all measures to avoid any bigger problems, but, in the other hand, since they have a history with nuclear contamination, they're also very sensitive on the matter and tend to have worse reactions to the possibility of it.

And I'll write my letter as soon as possible... thank you for organizing and giving the opportunity to send our sentiments to Japan. ^^
