KBR97 The power of the quake move the island of Japan 13ft. closer to the USA. And its sank about 2ft lower than before. Thats insane.


Oh and btw...if you add ... 9.11.01 + 3.10.11= 12.21.12 (the supposed end of the world). Got that in a text message today.

Bazzer For those concerned with the Nuclear Power Plants and how they are coping may find the following link useful. The media and TV presenters are reporting on a technology they know nothing about and therefore speculate into what is actually happening. The report in the link provided is an account from industry experts and therefore is closer to the truth and not drafted from speculation.

Battle to stabilise earthquake reactors

In the above link is a diagram of a typical Boiling Water Reactor (BWR). In the diagram you can see the Reactor Pressure Vessel. Surrounding that is a concrete shield/enclosure. This is the primary containment. Surrounding the primary containment is the secondary containment (the outer building). It is this outer structure that suffered from the explosion leaving the primary containment intact. An operation carried out in order to protect the reactor pressure vessel. Protecting the Reactor Pressure vessel will keep the reactor core safe and prevent large scale radioactive material from entering the environement.

Carlin was being sarcastic, but Gore was serious when he said, "The Earth has a fever and just like when your child has a fever, maybe that's a warning of something seriously wrong," Gore said on "Good Morning America".

Drive along the coast.
Avoid hills. But my days aren't normal days. I'm an insomniac, meaning I can keep going lot longer than a person without it. Bit preferably, I'd use an enduro bike or street bike.

Still made a point.
Humans cam do a lot more than they think they can. And I'm good with geometry, trig and physics. All have value to me.
And no point in going to Florida.... Head for the hills.... Mountains are safe havens

I have friends from college from Japan and they are in my prayers.

What is crazy to think about is how a island no bigger then the West Coast states in a line, uses 55 nuclear powerplants to create their power. Insane.


That is one butt load of electricity isn't it?

The nuclear fall out is worse than Chernobyl. From the time he news was posted, the radioactive dust will hit the pacific coast of the USA.

What happened in WWII has no relevance to what is going on in Japan right now, so why would it be brought up ?

Japan learned a hard lesson in WWII and takes responsibility for the end result. They're now a self proclaimed pacifist nation. They have no nuclear arms stockpile.

Having said that, give it time, the mindless talking heads will bring it up sooner or later.

The #1 reactor blew. Reactors 2 and 3 have cooling systems that are completely screwed. It's FUBAR.
