they've been having 5.0 quakes since yesterday's samoa 8.0.
poor people. times like this you wish you could just disconnect the whole land mass and float it above the water -- let the tsunami pass on by.

Do you make money, as a trader? Something like 1% of traders in asia actually make money. I suspect the quotient of successful traders in America is about the same -- 1%.

Not trying to bash you or anything, I'm just curious if you're able to make it work or not.

Ah, well congrats on the retirement, and kudos on the success


Gardening is very fulfilling, btw. Although maybe I think that because I grow things that most people aren't allowed to


Thanks for the post, and cheers.

Any one think this could be HAARP or something set up?

It will take an unlucky earthquake to do what it did in 2004, there have been lots of warnings in that area and only this one has had ay effect since 2004, but it does seem that maybe there i an increase.

news.aol.com...



"There are a considerable number of people who've been swept out to sea and are unaccounted for," English said. "We don't have information about the full impact and we do have some real concern that over the next 12 hours the picture could look worse rather than better."


While the earthquake and tsunami were big, they were not on the
same scale of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, said Brian Atwater of the U.S. Geological Survey in Seattle. That tsunami killed more than 230,000 in a dozen countries across Asia.
