Japan Nuclear Crisis
If you're at least somewhat up to date with current events then you've heard about the earthquake and potential meltdowns of a few of Japan's nuclear reactors. Due to the loss of electricity from the tsunami, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has been unable to pump water to the fuel rods which continue to build up heat and energy. As long as they do not burn through the barriers containing them and combust with the outside air, a major catastrophe can be averted for the most part. What better way to explain the disaster than a little metaphor. Even in the midst of such a predicament Japan finds an oddly hilarious way to inform people about the incident. Am I a bad person for finding this video funny?
