Gaia is angry. We must appease her by throwing Al Gore into a volcano. That is all.

Hmmmmmm, maybe California’s turn is not to far off. There has been a whole lot of shaken going on out there lately.

I just said the same on another thread. If Mother Earth keeps this up, she may just split apart before the Mayan ‘predicted’ end in 2012!

I’m here in Taipei and felt a long but gentle rolling quake. No big deal.

LOL! I’ll help hoist him, but he’s pretty big; it’s going to take at least six of us to do it! ;)

That wouldn't work. The volcano would just spit out Gore and be angrier then before Gore was tossed into the volcano.

Leaving for church shortly.

Please ping me to the USGS link when available.

Sigh.

Love those people.

Sounds like it’s somewhat in the center of the Island.

We must appease her by throwing Al Gore into a volcano.

That's cruelty to volcanoes. Besides, I though he was belched up from somewhere deep down below (how else would he be so knowledgeable about the temperature inside the earth's core?)

Seems likely to be in more of a mountainous, tribal, less populated area.

MAY GOD BE WITH THEM ALL.

Round him up and tape his mouth so he doesn’t holler “I told you so” on the way down.

I was thinking-and I’m sure someone will correct me-that last Friday-Saturday a 7.0 Japan followed in ten hours by an 8.8 Chile, isn’t normal or typical.

I sure hope it won't be as big as this one in Taiwan. Then again, California always has earthquakes going on, some large, some not so large.

It's a shallow quake so unfortunately, you're probably right.
