Thank you all for your participation in this thread.
Many interesting things have come from this. First of all, never did I say that it was a 100% certainty. It was a possibility and I put it out
there. All of the kind people who have shared their experiences, dreams, beliefs, and feelings concerning the unknown have really expanded my
knowledge concerning earthquake prediction and premonition. There are truly some amazing people on this site: Caring, considerate, and
Putting oneself out online and attempting something of this nature was not easy, and I went through some hesitation before I wrote it, but this is
ATS, and it is a place for risk-taking. It still seems abnormally quiet in South America to me, but that's just my personal opinion.
For those who think this was done for stars and flags, I have to shake my head in wonder at the mentality of people who think posters write threads
for things that have no real value. Stars and flags are somewhat validating, but you can't take 'em to the bank. This is not elementary school, and
you shouldn't be in the corner pouting and calling somebody "Teacher's Pet" out of jealousy because Little Johnny got a gold star on his homework and
you got an unhappy face in red on yours.
This is about connecting with others on a certain issue.
As far as correcting "Eminent", I was up until after 2:30 am this morning dealing with this thread and I was starting to nod off in front of the
computer, so I didn't correct it. No need to have an aneurysm about it. Unwad your panties and relax, I shall fix it as soon as I'm done typing
this. I do know the difference, BTW. Again, more childish tantrum-throwing, much ado about NOTHING. People that go on a thread just to play grammar
cop, prancing around on their high horses, don't add anything of value, and are like the pouters crying about stars and flags. Very disappointed to
see these types of responses and the animosity and pure nastiness that emanates from them. It is hurtful but not unexpected, considering that the
anonymity of the internet allows such meanness without reprisal. The quality of your posts say more about you than it does about me and this
Most of the people who participated were absolutely wonderful, and I learned so much from them. I realize now I should have placed this thread in
"Dreams and Predictions", it would have fit better there.
All in all, I'm GLAD nothing happened, even though I got a few thumps on the head from people angry that the magician's hat did not produce a rabbit
for their amusement. Sometimes it just happens that way. Better to be wrong about something of this magnitude than right.
Thanks for all the support and kindness (you know who you are)! If it weren't for you, most people would be too afraid to start a thread, because of
the cruelty and ridicule they might receive if everything isn't completely perfect.
EDIT: I cannot edit the title at this time, it has been too long. I guess your panties stay in a wad then.
