I want to do the right thing. The most right thing, the thing that takes all possibilities of right, good, success in account.

Tsunamis and Car Wrecks
I saw this 26-minute video of the storm surge in Japan after the 2011 Tsunami, and this is a fitting week to share. The guy shooting the video must have been pretty far inland, because the water came up over the course of four or five minutes. I got anxious about how long the videographer waited to get to higher ground. But he does get to higher ground!
The next one is unrelated, but I couldn't stop watching; a traffic accident in Russia. A truck full of explosive gas tanks catches on fire.
Tanks explode, one at a time, for seven minutes.
The best part is how close people were at first. How the cars kept going by on the other side of the road. Then a few tanks blow, and *everyone* stays away, backs up. Even the videographer.

I trend towards long, lecture-like commentaries. After all, I am the child of a lawyer and an English teacher; I love the English language, but love best hearing myself speak it...
