Hopefully this guy is wrong.



And if he's right, I hope to god it's not the Cascadia subduction zone that will go off... because if it is, say bye bye to Seattle, Portland and Vancouver.

I believe the quake may have been a result of the gravitational pull of the moon. March 20th is when the moon will be closest to earth.. so lets see if more destruction will ensue. What blew my mind is the fact that this earth quake shortned our days, even if only by a couple micro seconds... The Chili earthquake took off, what, about 7 micro second off the day... thats crazy stuff....

1145: Tepco, which runs the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, has apologised on its website for an earlier incident in which "an abnormal noise began emanating from [a] pressure suppression chamber". This led to a temporary evacuation of workers. "We are aware of and sincerely apologize for the great distress and inconvenience this incident has caused to not just those inhabitants residing in the immediate vicinity but also society at large," Tepco says

Didn't they say last night it was because of souring radiation levels? Can't trust Tepco.

I sure hope this whole quake situation does not
interfere with the taping of ninja warrior..

I love that show.

I wonder if that is even being considered right now
because of this recent crisis.

Things seem to be getting worse and people are trying to sugar coat it.

This would not of gotten a dedicated forum if this was *no big deal*

Kyodo News: NEWS ADVISORY: Seawater injection into No.4 reactor via helicopter too risky: Edano (11:39)

Even if they ask the U.S. for aid, what do they expect to happen? It is too dangerous to do anything on land, and do dangerous to do anything by air...

Effing idiots. This is where they should be using the stupid machines/robots that they have invented and designed to send them inside with a firehose to re-fill the reservoir for cooling if they cannot send humans. If they are taking chances and letting sea water in then surely they can do this as well. Can't they? Just my dire strait thoughts.

If I remember correctly, they tried using robots in Chernobyl but the robots started to malfunction. I have no idea how much radiation it takes to cause problems but I'm sure the entire Japanese government didn't over look robots.

With a technologically advanced country like Japan that specializes in high tech gizoms such as robots I'm surprised they haven't sent something in.

Too early to make a "domo arigato Mr Roboto" joke?

Yes that is correct all the robots they tried to used malfunctioned and stopped working - I remember seeing that on the documentary about Chernobyl here in the UK but have forgotten the reason why

Both you and jaredfelix should look into Piers Corbyn @ www.weatheraction.com... because he says both solar and lunar forces have an effect.
