I feel so...unworthy.

I posted this on Facebook earlier, but I'm still somewhat in awe of it. When the tsunami hit in Japan, most folks in those areas did the sensible thing and rushed for higher ground. Not so for a man named Hideaki Akaiwa, though. When he realized his wife was unaccounted for, he didn't rush for higher ground. He rushed for his SCUBA gear.

Chuck Norris ain't got nothin' on this guy.

I posted this to my FB page and wanted to give a hat tip, but couldn't recall where I'd seen it. This is a fricken awesome story.

Incredible. A true love story for the ages.

I have to say the glib tone of the writing bordered on offensive, though. I get that it's the "Badass's" writing style and tone, but he/she could have taken it down a notch. It came off as irreverant at times.
