Don't worry, I'm not hurt. Even if I was hurt my free healthcare would cover it.

If Godzilla were real Americans by the millions would cross the Canadian border in search of medical attention because our health coverage probably has a disclaimer that won't cover us in case of ocean going monster attacks..

Okay, just don't expect our military of like 3500 soldiers with 1980's gear to protect you very well.
Some people say that vampires hate garlic and sunlight. But what they REALLY hate, is turtlenecks.

Besides, a lot of girls seem to like them. If the idea of a pale antisocial white guy appeals to you, why not date me?

If it was winter we couldn't get there unless we drove over the RVs with Ontario plates.

Back on topic, I heard from someone there was once plans for a godzilla anime. It would be quite a coincidence if godzilla rose up to attack japan at the time it aired there.

Godzilla is real. All those movies are to prepare us mentally when it becomes obvious and they can't hide it anymore.

In defense of nuking Godzilla

Quote
There's no higher power that governs Godzilla's relationship with humanity. Godzilla can flatten whole cities without breaking a sweat. It's literally impossible to tell what he's thinking because he can't communicate in any known language. So rational governments who want to survive have little choice but to prepare for war with Godzilla.

More than just prepare, in fact: strike first. Think about scope conditions 2 and 3, the ability to harm and communication. Whatever Ken Watanabe's Godzilla-worshipping scientist says, there's no way to actually confirm that Godzilla's intentions towards humanity are peaceful.

Moreover, once he does turn on humanity, nuking him becomes prohibitively costly. You'd have to target whatever city he's wrecking, spreading fallout throughout your own country. It's in every nation's interest to take him out before they're forced to make that choice.

That's it then.. We need an all out nuclear war against every city on earth remotely close to an ocean.. Say...anything even close to within say 5000 miles and all of humanity has to huddle together somewhere around central Eurasia.. I knew that the easy solution was right under our noses all along..

One of my cousins says pretty much the same thing every time we have a big UFO movie. "Close Encounters" was a forecast.
