So I'm a HUGE fan of Firefly.  If you're not familliar with Firefly, let me break it down for you.

Sometime in the future there is a war between the Alliance and the Replublic.  The Alliance wins and now everyone is controlled by this super power that is made up when China and America combine.  Everyone speaks Chinese-English or English-Chinese.  Basically everyone knows both languages.  Oh and Earth no longer exists.  It is Earth-that-was, so it existed at one time.

Anyway I always wondered why it was China that combined.  I mean, I understand that today China is a huge power as far as industry goes, but I always thought that if we were to combine with another country it would be Japan.  That if we were gonna war with another country that MIGHT be able to take us over it would be them.  You know, all that pent up resentment from beating them in WWII and all.  That and cause I figure they are just bidding their time until they pull out the big guns and kill us with weapons their genius electronical brains came up with.

I get it now.  I know I am wrong.  Japan will never get the chance.  Why?  Because apparently they are going to be demolished by a plethora of giant monsters.  Godzilla, Gamera, Mothra, Gaos, etc. 

While recouping last night I had a marathon of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) and watched all the Gamera episodes.  I didn't even know these movies existed.  Gamera is this giant prehisotric flying turtle monster who has a soft spot for kids.  Sound familliar?  Yep these are a blatant rip-off of Godzilla, but not my point.

What I'm curious to know, and what Japan needs to watch out for, is where the heck are all these ginormous monsters hiding?  I know Japan is a fairly large place, but if you take all the monsters from both the Godzilla and Gamera series, Japan isn't THAT big.  So where are they hiding?  And why do the Japanese cheer them on when their city is bieng destroyed in these monster battles?  Do they knot know this will be their downfall?  Sooner or later they will run out of money to rebuild and they will lose it all.

Now armed with that knowledge I now understand why China combines with us.  Because, in the future, Japan does not exist.  Hell, Earth doesn't exist.  I figure these monsters that the Japanese couldn't contain destroyed Japan and then moved on to the rest of the world.  It also explains why Earth doesn't exist and why everyone lives out in space or has been relocated to other worlds.  Because they HAD too.

You're welcome Joss Weaton.  I just explained the part of the story you never did.
