    Glad to see all 50 workers escaped alive, it was too much for even the most dedicated workers on the planet. I get the feeling the worst is about to come and one of the rods will explode with Reactor 3 being the most likely to explode.

    I hope this means the next STALKER game will take place in Japan.

    Hopefully this doesn't end up into another wasteland. Luckily the Fukushima power plant is nowhere near Tsernobyl but it can still get messy [​IMG]

    Things seem to just keep on getting worser and worser for Japan :/
    Hopefully they're able to get back up to what they once were.

    Shits getting worse for us too. The more damaged Japan is, the more we are damaged in every kind of way possible.

    Life hasn't been normal since these 3 disasters. It's downright depressing and heartbreaking.

    Lol if the guy who thought of building nuclear power plants on fault lines is still alive, he must have committed suicide already or hiding from angry mobs. xD

    Well, now it´s not time to joke around. If this persist it would lead to nuclear fusion, which will be a thermonuclear reaction. A lot of heat spread over the atmosphere (like people thought in the '40s)

    And to tell you the truth.. japan´s the first domino which could fall, but we´re next. Chile´s shore form part of the Ocean pacific.

    Someone needs to beat him with some sticks, same with the fools who thought of putting nuclear plants near the coast in California.

    I really doubt that the world is going to end in 2012. The Mayans were great astronomers and had a good, valid reason to stop their calender at 2012. They probably knew about the effects of the sun and moon better than the scientists we have in modern times because they worshipped the sun and moon. 2012 is just an estimate of the devastating effects from the sun and moon that will ultimately lead to the world ending. This estimate could be WAY off, could be near too. Could be tommorow, could be next month, fifteen years from now.. Who knows? No one thats who, only the one who created this universe.

    Actually, scientists miscalculated the year 2012. They redid it, and it's 2208 if this calculation is right xD


    Though, poor japan O_O
    Is whole japan effected by the earthquake and the tsunami? I'm not sure..

    Physically, no, only the northeast coast of Japan. Anywhere west, southwest, northwest or southeast of the area are fine.

    Economically yes

    Agree, from where would you think Japan could have its sources of electricity? It´s quite understandable.

    But on earth who´d have thought tremors would´ve been just triggering a bigger problem now?

    How could those unlimited sources of energy be shut down? I´m sure more than one know this for sure.
