2011: An earthquake with the magnitude of 9.0 appears under water not far from the coast of Japan.
First the quake itself devastates the area, but more importantly it triggers a tsunami wave which adds on top of this.
A nearby nuclear power plant in Fukushima was affected heavily by both and, due to human arrogance and greed that made it be constructed suitable to economical needs, but not apropriate to the needs of a facility that stands on a cliff coast of a volcanic island, a meltdown appeared during the following days.
400.000 people in estimated numbers had to leave their homes and be evacuated in the zone set by the state around the power plant.
The state of Japan, being located where it is, hung on a thing thread depending on the outcome of the acute actions made to meet this disaster.

Still until this very day, the consequences out of this event keep the authorities busy.


2009, Winnenden, Baden-Württemberg: A 17-year-old student takes a Baretta pistol from his Dad’s possession and kills 13 people at his former school, 2 more and himself on escaping the scene to a psychiatric clinic and eventually a car dealer.

What this case maintains memory with is an opposite to „good police work“ - a SWAT team having surrounded the school couldn’t prevent an 17-year-old from escaping through the backdoor and capturing a random car on the street, including a driver, to continue his killing spree.

But interesting that the media is really quiet about it. But when it happened, they were saying that the fish will be contaminated for the next 100 years or more considering the half-life of radioactive particles. But they sell fish and sea weed harvested from the Pacific ocean and even advertise them like wild-caught, as if it is so great, don't they?

Admittedly there's not much talk about that anymore.
Everything does its business as usual.

Btw, was surprised that the second event was on the same day as the first, only a few years earlier.

Maybe it is the moon tides or something? Usually some people nowadays like to explain system f**ups like that. In reality it is just consequences of the environment and it is the cause. The date is just coincidence, I think.

Ah, no, I didn't mean it like that!
I'm aware of the fact that it's just coincidence...
It was just strange to notice, as I somehow don't have the second one that exactly stuck in my head. Always I've got to look it up.
