Mom’s First Law of Floods: Where water has been before, water will be again.
Lots of Japanese ignored that law, but the folks of Aneyoshi followed it scrupulously. Too bad most folks don’t stop to read the writing on the wall–or on those corny old stone markers, either…
Update (9 April). Masanobu Shishikura didn’t need to read old stone markers; he figured out the tsunamis were coming just by looking at dirt. Nobody listened to him, either.
No car chases, explosions, big names, CGI graphics, or any of that other Hollywood crap. Just two guys and a loft apartment. Magic.
Tip from the American Digest.
The Amazing Khan does it again with his suggestion to do lectures OUTSIDE class, and “homework” IN class. The guy’s a madman. A wonderful, gifted madman.
Update (28 March). This must be a big deal inedeed if even cow grazier Gary Jones gets intrigued.
Hideaki Akaiwa is a real Man’s Man, right down to the duct tape. And somehow he manages it without the usual penis substitutes, like an oversized SUV or a 60-inch flatscreen TV. Amazing. And on top of it all, the man has a sense of style: Ray-Bans and an amime mascot!
Tip from the Instapundit.
I saw some examples of Don Weller’s watercolors in a sandwich shop the other day. This guy is the real deal.
