With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high tension wires down

Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them

He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town

Reuters story - doesn't seem that bad:



TOKYO (Reuters) - A strong earthquake measuring 6.8 on the open-ended Richter scale shook western Japan on Sunday and officials issued tsunami warnings, broadcaster NHK reported.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the quake, but NHK said a tsunami measuring 20 inches had already reached the Wakayama region.

People were being warned to stay away from coastal areas, NHK said.

The strongest tremors were felt in the Nara area, the ancient capital of Japan where there are many temples. The quake measured five on the Japanese scale of seven.

It wasnt necessarily a 6.8 by the time it reached the population, and Japanese buildings are built to deal with big quakes.

Dont ya'll forget about Baby Godzuki.

Remember when he would try to blow flames out of his mouth and he would just get those little smoke rings.

How cute!
I hope they dont wreak to much havoc on the island.May be its Mathra causing all the ruckus??

Yeah right tell that to all the dead of Kobe...

But sounds like this one went off well off shore.

7.3 is huge and will make a serious Tsunami somewhere. Maybe not Japan. It could be as far away as Hawaii or more. Not good

Jeez, huricanes, floods, wildfires, wars, what's the place coming to?

Where was the epicenter?

I hope no one was killed... Japanese buildings and society are planned for earthquakes. They practice earthquake drills in Tokyo a lot, from what I hear. They are pretty conscientious and prepared.

I know that the Japanese stereotype is one of short people, guess it must be true.

Damn it!!!

It's not Bush's fault.

He was aiming at China.

Our earthquake weapons systems are just not that accurate because Kerry voted against funding.
