Yes, Eastern Japan and Western Japan were influenced by different countries in the western world, as I understand it. The first generators in each were from two different countries that operated on different frequencies. By the time they thought about the difference it was too late to do anything about it.
Not geothermal, natural gas (sorry).
Also I believe they started up some of their old geothermal plants. Either way, the Kyoto Protocol seems like it is no longer an option here (I am also a resident of Japan).
As if guns weren't easy enough to get without a proper license...
This sounds very similar to the plot for "Contact"
As long as it is not required (or not unreasonably hard to continue the game without buying), I don't care. I went through all of Dead Space 3 without any urge to purchase anything, and finished the game. As long as I can keep doing that, I am happy. If not, however, there will be hell to pay.
It's not that current games are keeping me from switching, it is that I want to be able to play new games when they come out, not after an enormous delay. That delay may have become shorter in recent years, but that is the reasoning that sticks with me.
One point will actually be 4 pixels, not 2 (2 horizontal and 2 vertical since it is 2x in both x and y).
What was the point of mentioning the price? "You can get a screen replaced for a couple hundred dollars"....where have I seen that price before....OH right, the price of a new contracted 16-gb iPhone 5!! I will never pay $200 for a screen replacement when the parts cost a mere $20 and it takes less than an hour of my time to accomplish, and neither should anyone else.
They had systems in place for a loss of power event. The problem was they didn't anticipate the length of time the loss of power event would continue. There was a steam/battery powered system designed to cool the reactor without any external power but the batteries ran dry before any help could arrive due to the devastated state of the roads and land around them. I suppose they assumed that if they lost power, they could sound the alarm and quickly get a generator truck in place while they worked on restoring the main power.
The 2nd line was not a conclusion of the first. The first two lines were the givens. Though I thought the same thing when I first read it. His post is in reply to this one:
CO2 + Light = Algae
CO2 + Algae = Light
The Tokyo one seems mislabeled as milli instead of micro (especially going by the block sizes). I think there would be a huge problem with 40 millisieverts.....
Works fine for me in Firefox 12.0
As for number 2 I'm pretty sure OP was just saying 0.01 seconds to eliminate the acceleration factor from his argument about the 1.3 seconds.
Probably not....Japanese people are much more willing to put up with personal discomfort for the sake of the collective. A big part of their culture revolves around keeping harmony with the people around them, so speaking up with a complaint is unbecoming. Also having an idea that differs from other peoples' is frowned upon. This summer will probably turn out to be the same as last summer, with the rolling blackouts making a comeback. Although since more power plants have been shut down, the radius of blackouts might be extended. I don't know what my company will do during the blackouts if they come to our area, since we develop software and obviously can't do that with no power
