    Oh no, Hawaii is going to get hit, too, looks like.
    It seems I've singed a troll or two too many with my trusty flamethrower, and now hark! The ban hammer hovereth. Troll me more, and I'll see it falls on your head and not on mine, by the power of the report post button.


    On a side note, I'm sorta cranky, but I love you all anyway!

    I heard it was 4 meters in Japan. Not nearly as large as the other one although the earthquake was a lot higher on the scale. Who knows what will happen other places. This should be in off topic though I would think.

    I think someone said Chicago?

    I'm a little more worried about the poorer countries this could hit than about Cali or Japan or Hawaii. Their buildings can take a lot, at least I hope so. If you ever get a chance to look at earthquake and tsunami death toll differences when it hits a wealthy country vs when it hits a poor one, it will break your heart to realize how many needn't have died in the poorer countries.

    I was watching CNN early this morning and was watching cars and boats floating down the street in Japan.
    I couldn't believe my eyes. Then I heard about the nuclear reactor there. They couldn't cool it or something.

    At Tokyo Electric Power's Fukushima Daiichi plant, three reactors shut down automatically as designed after a magnitude 8.9 earthquake struck off the northeast of Japan on Friday afternoon. The quake also caused diesel-powered generators used to cool the reactors to stop operating, leaving the utility company with a shortage of coolant to bring the reactors to a safe temperature.
