Quake

Now that I think about it, Japan is basically a nation of people who decided to colonize a bunch of volcanoes.  A big one just hit in Miyagi, about an 8.0 magnitude.  There are now tsunamis too.

There’s literally nothing good that can come from an earthquake.  At least tsunamis can put out the fires of Isengard before Saruman can join forces with Sauran.  Well, I guess earthquakes could make a tsunami that could keep two evil armies of orcs and uruk hai from ever meeting up and taking over Middle Earth…

Japanese people are kind of used to these massive shiftings of the earth.  It of course surprises them, but they’ve built their cities to withstand this sort of thing.  Practice makes perfect and unless there’s a big change in geological science Japan is gonna keep getting hit, regularly…

Timing really sucks too, not that I think there’s a good time for an earthquake, but this is graduation time, so today, Friday, there are lots of schools with packed gymnasiums full of students, teachers, and parents…

For everyone that was hit by this quake stay safe!  I hope you’re all alright!  This means you, Josh, Sat, Yuko, J, Cliff, Hiroaki, Reiko, Allan, Kana, Waka, Chi, and everyone else.
