I do care about human life. I do care about Japan. It's actually one of my favorite places to study regional history. I'm just not going to panic about an unlikely nuclear meltdown right now. That shows maturity, not immaturity.
When this stuff was first posted, it was all speculation. If something changes - and it's dependent on so many factors - then I'll adjust my concern accordingly.
When this story first broke, everyone was like, OH MY GOD! ITS GONNA HIT THE US! runnnnnnnnn and what did we get? WHAT CRAZY BIG SENSATIONALIST NEWS HAPPENED?
Some big waves.
And I did not comment until today, if you look around. I saw a lot of folks that were basically yawning at the possibility of nuclear meltdown. Perhaps they need to see the mushroom cloud. Dunno. Maturity? I am certainly not guilty of being mature. Ask anyone that knows me. Old man that forgot to grow up....CHECK.
All media uses speculation to increase viewership. They also use sensational headlines. They use pretty faces to tell us to worry. Same crap, different location.
