^ That is hilarious. I mean, I don't see the point of the show... but subversion seems a bit... over the top.

You know what, those meatballs are still f-ing delicious, and it reminds me of a line from Babylon 5 that every culture has their own "Swedish Meatballs". Also this seems to fall in the vein of pizza and pasta being Chinese inventions appropriated by Italy.

Number of children in Japan falls for 37th year to hit new record low

Low birthrate and fairly strict immigracy policy probably means that the trains are going to be a bit more empty in the 20 years or so.

Portugal also has super low birth numbers. Hopefully the situation changes before governments impose laws or something. The situation would have to be really dire for that to happen though.

Most of the developed world has low birth rates. It's pretty much inevitable that this will happen in countries that are wealth and stable.

Two recent news stories

The first is the continuing issue on Hawaii's big Island, Hawai'i where the volcano Kilauea has been erupting for the last week, raising concerns that it could suffer from steam explosions not seems in over a century, sending boulders the size of refrigerators hurtling through the air and causing further damage to the island, and forcing a mandatory evacuation. Hopefully the volcano goes dormant again soon for all those affected.

And on a lighter note, a tanker truck in Poland crashed, sending it's cargo of liquid chocolate all over the motorway.

Tornadoes just aren't something you think of happening in the hills of New England, its more of Midwest thing, right? So... quite out of the ordinary for New England, two EF1 tornadoes touched down in Connecticut yesterday during some severe thunderstorms. Two fatalities have been reported so far.
