well, how about...in a parallel world, there was megaearthquake in Tokyo, but we are part of another reality, where this did not happen? we can count ourselves to be lucky in this case. (I love quantum mechanics! :)

Even the wonderful "shojin ryori" in Kyoto is made with fish stock, i.e. Bonito flakes. Being vegan, I make my soup stock with powdered kelp or powdered shiitake mushrooms. Why is this so hard to get ?

I think people should let go of old customs which are no longer suitable for the new generation. Imagine some very cruel festivals from the dark ages in Europe, like "a burning man" for example, which would still be here if human rights activists had no say in the matter. The language used in the article is disconsiderate towards the animal rights activists, which tells me that perhaps the writer might actually enjoy the abuse of the poor creatures s/he writes about. So sad!

I have a feeling this ... preocupation with Riken actually is a way of distracting people's attention from some very important points:Who is interested in putting a break on this particular research? Who is interested in putting a break/end on the successful research that Japan has already accomplished? What other trivial matters can be brought to the public eye, so that the public opinion can be manipulated to self-sabotage an entire country? Good scientists are a national treasure, and a national institute should have decent furniture. Tired of success? Then keep on bullying the ones who brought - or are trying to bring success to Japan.
