Japanese Earthquake: Tsunami Wipes Out Parked Cars

Generally speaking, we here at The Daily Derbi try to take a sarcastic, lighthearted tone in our content. Today’s events in Japan however, will allow for no such tone. Among the tragic destruction caused by what ended up as the 6th most powerful earthquake in recorded history are the victims of this natural disaster, including one Honda employee who was killed and another 30 who were injured.

While our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to the employees of Honda and anyone affected, we found that it was a comment on Jalopnik’s coverage of this story that summed up the situation best. Says reader Spiegel — Nobody sees the name:

We make jokes about Honda and some of the crazy/stupid shit they do but sometimes we forget that these are actual human beings. And sometimes, the only way to break through the jokes and cynicism is to show how fragile we, as a species, really are.

If you’d like to help the victims of today’s earthquake in Japan, please text 90999 to donate $10.o0 to the relief efforts being put together by the Red Cross.
