This actually isn't related to any prophecy or NWO thing, its just cool.

A massive earthquake last week has brought New Zealand closer to Australia, scientists say.

The 7.8 magnitude quake in the Tasman Sea has expanded New Zealand's South Island westwards by about 30cm (12in).

Seismologist Ken Gledhill, of GNS Science, said the shift demonstrated the huge force of the tremor.

But correspondents say that with more than 2,250km (1,400 miles) separating the countries, the narrowing will not exactly be visible.

Nor, as the New Zealand media have observed, is it likely to bring cheaper air fares.

Its a small expansion but its still interesting to see what plate tectonics can do. New Zealand is on the edge of the Australian-Pacific convergence zone so it is prone to earthquakes making this 7.8 earthquake serious but nothing new.

I wonder how this will affect their territorial waters, any thoughts? Or will they just not notice because its a foot of extra territory?

That is cool!

Can't wait for someone to blame it on global climate change, solar flares, or that dam in China.

Maybe the earthquake was caused by the US because New Zealand pulled out of Iraq in 2004.
