Lesbian Couple To “Wed” At Disney World Japan

Disney World in Japan has agreed to allow a lesbian couple to hold a symbolic marriage ceremony at the theme park. At first park officials insisted the couple must dress as a man and a woman, apparently hoping no one would notice they were both women, but relented after an Internet backlash erupted.

Japan Tsunami Debris Washes Up In Alaska

Debris from the 2011 tsunami in Japan has reached North America. Plastic bottles, children’s toys, and insulating foam from buildings is washing up on beaches in the Alaskan panhandle. Although it is estimated that 70% of the tsunami debris has sunk, it is also estimated that as much as 1.5 million tons is headed for North America.

Japanese Tsunami Debris Headed For U.S. West Coast

A massive collection of over 25 million tons of cars, houses, body parts, and other debris from last year's tsunami in Japan is headed for the West coast of North America. Congress is debating if the debris counts as "imports" and should be calculated-in to the trade deficit.

U.S. Nuclear Plants Threatened By Floods, Wild Fires

NRC spokesmen claim flooding around a Nebraska nuclear power plant poses no threat.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is downplaying disaster threats to U.S. nuclear plants in Nebraska and New Mexico. They claim there is no similarity to the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan.

“In Japan there was an earthquake followed by a flood of seawater. In Nebraska there was no earthquake and the plant is being flooded with fresh water – totally different thing. Unless the water gets higher than say two feet and two inches inches. Then it will pour into the containment vessels and you’ll see massive explosions and melt-downs that will sterilize the entire state. But there is absolutely no chance the water will exceed the safe depth.”

Nebraska disaster response officials say the water surrounding the plant is at two feet, with more rain on the way.

This nuclear plant at Los Alamos, New Mexico is in the path of raging wildfires - but an NRC spokesman says the flames won't get close enough to be a threat.

Meanwhile, in New Mexico, another nuclear plant at Los Alamos is surrounded by raging wildfires. Again an NRC spokesman says there is nothing to worry about. “This isn’t anything like Japan, where they had an earthquake, a flood, and then major fires at the Fukushima plant. There were no earthquakes or floods here. Earthquakes and flooding are the real problems – I mean the fire would have to completely consume that plant, and to do that there would have to be high temperatures combined with high wind – and what are the chances of that?”

The New Mexico weather service has predicted high temperatures combined with wind will sweep the state for the next several days.

Japan’s Nancy Reagan

She knew Tom Cruise in a former life (he was Japanese). She “eats the Sun”. She rode to Venus on a triangle-shaped UFO (and says it’s very nice there). She is Miyuki Hatoyama, Japan’s new First Lady (or “Filst Rady” – sorry, no way to resist it). And she’s absolutely nuts. This woman can deny “pillowing” to the leader of the second largest economy on Earth. Perhaps those plans to let Japan have it’s own army again should be put on hold.

Japan's new Prime Minister and the Mrs. have their picture taken. Fortunately she wasn't invisible at the time.
