Sorry, I misspelled it. I was in the middle of doing something and typed quickly and didn't catch it. My spelling mistake does not however make my comment untrue.
The earthquake was a megathrust earthquake resulting from the release of mechanical stress between the subducting Nazca Plate and the South American Plate, on the Peru-Chile Trench. The focus was relatively shallow at 33 km, considering that earthquakes in northern Chile and Argentina may reach depths of 70 km. Subduction zones are known to produce the strongest earthquakes on earth as their particular structure allows more stress to build up before energy is released. Geophysicists consider it a matter of time before this earthquake will be surpassed in magnitude by another. The earthquake's rupture zone was 800 km long, stretching from Talca (35° S) to Chiloé Archipelago (43° S). The rupture velocity has been estimated as 3.5 km per second.

No power source even exists to produce the energy they would need to even begin to do as is suggested.

"and oh...have you ever heard a number which is NOT important for masons "
My thoughts exactly. People who play the number games have way too much time on their hands. If you wanna add and subtract strange important numbers PM me and you can balance my checkbook
I'd like to add...has there ever been a death, wedding or accident that wasn't a sacrifice to Satan?edit on 4-5-2011 by doctornamtab because: (no reason given)
