Sure, questioningall's posts are well presented and offer loads of information for the curious but almost every doomsday thread is about earthquakes
that do not happen.. I'd bet less than half of the people who starred questioningall's thread read the entire posting
Massive quake moves NZealand closer to Australia
With the countries separated by the 2,250-kilometre-wide (1,400-mile-wide) Tasman Sea, the 30 centimetre (12 inch) closing of the gap in New
Zealand's southwest won't make much difference.
But earthquake scientist Ken Gledhill of GNS Science said the shift illustrated the huge force of the tremor, the biggest in the world so far this
"Basically, New Zealand just got a little bit bigger is another way to think about it," he told AFP.
While the southwest of the South Island moved about 30 centimetres closer to Australia, the east coast of the island moved only one centimetre
westwards, he said.
The biggest quake in New Zealand in 78 years caused only slight damage to buildings and property when it struck the remote southwest Fiordland region
of the South Island last Thursday.source
Wow! Don't some of you guys feel like idiots? Maybe next time you'll listen to the girl, instead of posting your useless opinions on matters you
clearly know nothing about.
I know, you'll cry "coincidence... idiots always do.
