    It’s just a good shape. When it comes to a blastwave the ratio of density to surface area makes all the difference. Buildings, which are hollow and have walls like sails, have no chance next to that thing.

    My Japanese isn’t that good, but that gate is called a torii. We have a park here in Dallas with one of those, but I doubt it is put together as well as the torii in Japan.

    They rock on Honshu, I lurve me some Jap stuff. I am huge fan of Japanese cinema and their culture. My woman, The Warden, is half Japanese, and all mean ;)

    I do not mean to be a downer, but the earthquake and tsunami in Japan happened nearly a thousand miles from Nagasaki…

    This seems to be where everyone is getting the pictures from:

    Good question, indeed. I bet Larry could RUN with that in one of his books…
