    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Balls, and how to show you have them.




    Enson Inoue, former MMA-fighter of no small renown,
    traveling the disaster zone in Japan on his own,
    to provide help where he can
    .


    You went by yourself, right?
    I went by myself because I actually didn't have anyone who offered to go with me. I had a lot of people telling me not to go though!

    What was it like driving up through Fukushima and into the areas that were badly hit by the tsunami?
    Driving up through Fukushima felt like I was stepping outside into the rain. Like something came over me when I realized what I was doing. The highways were like roller coasters. Because of the earthquake there were cracks everywhere and the roads were really rippled with ups and downs all over the place. I have a radiation detector, and I was constantly checking that as I was going up.

    What did you take up?
    I had a Hummer loaded of supplies. I had over 100 pounds of rice, cases of water, curry, ramen, tampons for ladies, diapers for babies, diapers for elderly, a lot of junk food. You know for me, what I would be wanting is potato chips and chocolate. A lot of clothing, a lot of socks, anything I could think of. My Hummer was just filled.
    Enson Inoue is not asking for donations and suggests that if people can help, they should donate to the Red Cross.

    the fact that he brought tampons for the ladies will ensure even his childrens children will get laid.

    That's a cat who has been through some rough things already in life but pushed on and is now using that strength to be fucking awesome and helping others. Big steel balls.
