7.2 Quake Rocks Japan

By Wyatt Earp | June 14, 2008

Hopefully, the Hello Kitty factory and the Mr. Sparkle plant were not affected.

Okay, that’s not funny. Well, it’s a little funny, but not appropriate.

I swear, between this and the terrible floods in the Midwest, I am starting to think these are the signs of the Apocalypse. Someone did something really bad, because God. Is. Pissed! Hopefully, some of this will subside soon enough, but until then, please send your prayers out to these victims.

And for God’s sake, hope these plagues don’t come to your town.

TOKYO - A powerful 7.2-magnitude earthquake rocked a rural area of northern Japan on Saturday, killing at least two people, triggering landslides and reportedly knocking down a bridge, fire and disaster management officials said. At least 64 were injured.

Two nuclear power plants in the area were undergoing inspections but there were no immediate reports of damage, said Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura. Electricity had been cut to about 29,000 households in the quake zone, he said. There was no danger of tsunami.

The 8:43 a.m. quake was centered in the northern prefecture (state) of Iwate about 280 miles north of Tokyo. It was felt as far away as the capital. ()

Good grief, what’s next?

    This is the norm, NOT the exception in Japan.

    Luckily (if there is to be anything fortuitous in this), Japan is the type of country that has really strong buildings designed for huge earthquakes.

    Scary. The world does seems to be crumbling, though.

    “Flooding & earthquakes” do not mark Teh Apocalypse™— It’s called “weather” and “plate tectonics”.

    You aren’t falling in with the The Goreacle’s Dhimmicrat Doomsdayers™, are you?

    If God was going to smite a place with flooding, because they were not wicked, it wouldn’t be the mid west. From what you tell us of your fair city though…

    Get your umbrella ready Wyatt, and start building an arc.

    Hell yeah that was funny, At least I will know somebody when I get to hell.

    Living in the world is inherently dangerous.

    I heard from my Grandmother, who was a full blood Cherokee, that you never ask “what is next”.

    Old NFO - Then they need to move!

    RT - So, they also have buildings designed to withstand fat people? Sweet!

    B.C. - Bite your tongue!!!

    Marvin - I welcome a flood! Wash the thugs away!

    Admiral - Mention my name, you’ll get a good seat!

    If God is going to smite the wicked, then watch - the long awaited Big One is about to strike California followed by Mt. Rainier erupting.

    We’ve actually got sunshine here in the midwest now and the puddles are getting smaller, thank you! At least we were able to avoid the majority of the tornadoes.

    So what plague shall be visited upon the city of brotherly love?

    The ‘big one’ isnt allowed to hit LA until I retire in 5 years or so and get out of here!

    Kim, that plague you asked about will be the NBA finals returning to Filthidelpia. ;)
