Via the forums, a great comic on being an eikaiwa teacher: Little in Japan.
The National Museum for Emerging Science and Innovation, known as Miraikan, reopened last Saturday after a three-month closure. Part of the Miraikan's ceiling collapsed during the earthquake.
Some video taken on the seventh floor during the quake.
This clip captures the ceiling collapse.

When I saw this story in the Japan Times for a webisode series called "English Teachers" about the antics of teaching at Be Yes! School of English, I thought it would be a live version of Charisma Man.
All you need to know about a day in the life of an eikaiwa instructor. This would hilarious if it weren't true.

Something for a laugh.
I think I've seen one or two of these floating around the internet, but Jordan Pearson has been kind enough to allow me to post them here.
Something light for the end of Golden Week.
