Boy, I go from incommunicado to ubercommunicado in a short interval don't I.

If there is one thing this has done for me, it has increased my Japanese vocabulary by some 20 words in the last three days. Words like fuel rod, meltdown, unprecedented, etc. I have watched more Japanese news in the last 3 days than in the last 3 years easily. The Japanese news is for obvious reasons more up to date. Even some stuff I read this morning seems maybe 8 hours or so behind.
