So as most of you might now by now, Japan experienced probably the worst disaster in their recent history sense the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. 1200 people are confirmed dead and with the fact that towns are now FUCKING GONE, the estimated death toll might reach as high as 10,000.
Japan is interestingly enough, the 2nd largest foreign donor of aid when it comes to natural disasters thanks to their large economy. From what I've gathered, the rest of the world didn't hesitate when it came to aiding this country and offered their time, money, thoughts and prayers.
Speaking of prayers.
Some people have been like "Oh my god! I'm SO offended that someone would be dickish enough to say that the earthquake is karma for Japan's role in world war two!"
Well yeah, that is a pretty dickish thing to say, but something about this picture offends me on the same level.
I think it's because ignoring the fact that about 70% of Japan does not identify itself as a certain religion,
(let alone Christian). Haruhi Suzumiya is the LEAST likely person to "pray for Japan".
The entire POINT of the show is that Haruhi is a manipulative self-centered sociopathtic bitch who's about THIS close to bombing the Kasumigaseki subway station. She has no empathy and views her fellow members of the SOS Brigade as objects to fit what she desires in the immediate moment.
I had a facebook friend who said that he found it really self-centered of people to say "Oh my god! Japan is in ruin! It's just like 2012!". But this is exactly the sort of thing Haruhi would say, because she views her life like a movie where she is the star and what better way to make her life a movie then to put her in the role of the spoiled man-child normally played by Joan Cussack who survives so he can get back with his estranged wife and children, while soldiers, politicians, doctors and other people of respectable occupations die horribly to prove the gravity of the current situation at hand.
In fact, if you really wanna get technical and bring Haruhi into this awful awful event that's destroyed and displaced the lives of Japan's citizens, I bet you anything it was Haruhi's "friends" who caused this earthquake in order to give the loopy cunt something to be fixated on to prevent her from destroying the universe in one of her many bitch-fits bought on by her own narcissistic personality disorder.
This is on that level of all those people who wrote DBZ-in-9/11 fanfiction where Vegeta would cry and go "Why must huuuumans do this to each other!" despite the fact that Vegeta's actions when he attempted to invade earth with Nappa, put all of Al Qaeda to shame.
For people who would actually like to -help- as opposed to drawing bad fanart, you can text 'REDCROSS' to 90999 and automatically donate $10 that will be billed on your upcoming cellphone statement.
....good god. I at least hope that awful piece of crap gets auctioned off with the proceeds going to an organization....
