How nature points out the folly of men.
Not surprisingly, internet searches for the term "Godzilla" spiked after the Japanese Triple Disaster. io9 has a wonderful essay on the topic here.
I know I made a few Godzilla jokes in the aftermath, and I wasn't alone. But I'm a firm believer that humor is best when there is some truth in it, and it is a useful tool for navigating some of life's more difficult moments. As the essay points out, there are solid, poignant reasons why people reached out for the familiar big lizard-guy to help cope with the tragedy.
I am sure that Japan will prove just as unstoppable and resilient as Godzilla.
