      True.

      On a side note I heard a promo on News Radio for the ABC's upcoming radio coverage of the NSW election this morning and was a bit dismayed that they'd used all sorts of techniques to make the voiceover sound like a bad Cher song mixed in with a desperately dramatic commercial TV promo.

      On the other hand, the coverage on the abc website has been excellent.

      Spare a thought for the staff remaining on site at the nuclear facility. I recall reading about the people that stayed on site to try and diminish the impact of chernobyl. Most of them died from radioactive poisoning in the weeks following the event.

      Seems to me that the worst of it is over. Thank God for that. The thought of a radioactive plume heading towards Tokyo was quite surreal.

      Anyone seen the Miyazaki film Ponyo? The idea of the ocean swallowing up a fishing village now seems quite prophetic.

      HUGE Miyazaki fans here, but Ponyo wasn't one of his better efforts

      Howl's moving castle is one of my favourites.

      You wonder why Japanese mythology is full of such apocolyptic imagery, then something like this happens and it all starts to make sense.

      I was scared of mdt's nuclear apocolocolypse, until I found [SA] goons had gone all Wikipedia sometime in the last 10 years. Now I'm frking terrified.
