had actually heard price of gas might go down for a bit since Japan is something like the 3rd largest gas consumer...

not sure if there's any truth to that.

Well, oil has dropped today. It was under $100 a barrel at one point.

Speaking of oil, last time gas prices were this high barrel was $147 a barrel. Something there doesn't make sense.

One of the Japanese islands shifted 8 feet to the east after the quake. :shock:

These pictures on CNN.com are unreal.....it's one thing to see shit like this happening in places like Haiti and Indonesia, but a country whose standard of living is basically the same as ours?? Damn.

Mother Nature doesn't know what a standard of living is.

Plus, the Japan quake was much worse than those others.

magnitude of death, you are correct.

magnitude of power, this was, if I heard correctly, 1000 times more violent.

Had someone ask me if I wanted to buy a $1 shamrock for MDA today at a bar.

Me: No thanks

Her: It's for charity

Me: That won't ever make it to the MDA

Her: C'mon it's just a buck

Me: Fair enough. Here's your buck, now GTFOOH

Cash for charity = not something I typically do

There's nothing I find more loathsome than begging for money. Our bar's holiday promotion this year was "give cash for this fucking poor family in Lynn so that their kids can have Christmas presents." And our (mercifully recently fired) dipshit bar manager made me stop trivia for seven fucking minutes so that he could go around and beg customers for cash. What a fucking embarrassment.

Charity is private. I do charitable things. But I'm not going to talk about them in detail, because that's not the point of performing charitable acts. People should do what they feel they can. And that's it. It's not something that should become grounds for judgment or an obligation. That defeats the whole purpose.

I'm sorry that Mk had to deal with somebody who thought that what she was doing was socially acceptable. Hell, I had a guy with a squeegee come up to my car at the end of the South Station exit off 93 south on Thursday who started clearing the rainwater from my rear window. I rolled down the window and told him "whoa, whoa, I'm all set, buddy." Nobody has manners anymore.
