I dont know about you guys and galls, but Im sick fed up with the politically correct, protect our ass talk coming from all corners of the Japanese government agencies.

A nuclear core does not partially melt...Its Melting is what its doing. Thats like saying water partially fell over the waterfall. It dosnt partially melt then stop. Why cant they just say "This is the truth" we cant stop this and its a disater like never seen before.

It reminds me of the shoplifter saying they just forgot to pay...instead of saying "I didnt pay" While Im on a roll can I just add, we can all feel there is much more to come in the very near future.

Respects

Most recent aftershock was a 6.1


GFZ Potsdam - Earthquake Bulletin
Region: Near East Coast of Honshu, Japan
Time: 2011-03-12 23:24:48.6 UTC
Magnitude: 6.1
Epicenter: 141.66°E 38.01°N

I've followed NewEarthquake on Twitter for over a year and have the tweets sent to my phone. As soon as a quake is registered it sends them out automatically. Extremely informative & interesting to follow.

Edit to add: Another two just registered: 5.4 & another 6.1

See, just want to remind people that the Japanese are very loved by American youth in a particular way. We worry about our oil and our various big people problems, but children worry about the people that make and produce their games, cartoons, books, movies, Pokemon cards, ect. Play is children's business, and kids are taking this seriously.

Thanks for a thoughtful and refreshing break from all the hysterics.

tsunami expected can cause major danger for rescuers even a 4 or 5 ft wave can move all of the things already in the water towards the people.

And if a 7.9 quake occurs then would it not create another tsunami?

Seems things are getting worse by the minute.

I was willing to give CNN the benefit of the doubt here...But it seems like they are purposefully posting conflicting reports and misinformation.

Starting to piss me off.

no all of the high mag aftershocks have been reported the plant story
is important atm and would cause more damage than aftershocks until
the tsunami arrives. also the aftershocks are effecting efforts at the plants so very revelant

The events are related wouldn't you say? Especially since some of the rumbling is causing further damage to the nuke plants.

CNN, FOX, MSNBC... they all love to do that kind of stuff..

Just like they will show replays of old footage (from hours ago, to even yesterday) on the main screen, with LIVE ----- BREAKING NEWS still flashing on the screen, while they voice over whatever current news personality is saying.

They're doing it now with the japan disaster and they do it all the time; it was bugging me when they did it during the gulf oil spill. It seems like they almost try to "trick" whatever viewers might be surfing through channels to stay on their channel and listen to their LIVE BREAKING NEWS even though it happened yesterday or hours ago and they have already reported by six other news personalities on the same network. Nothing is wrong with summarizing what has happened, but they are almost deceitful about it... just to be more dramatic and capture your attention.

I prefer to get my news from a variety of online sources and forums like this one, and then cross reference all the news agencies and decide what is reliable and what is not. It is sort of a game to me to figure out "real" info for myself before it shows up on CNN.
