    Not even close to an 8.5 from the webbies that I saw. Big but doesn't seem that big at all. Automatic solutions suck. Wait for the first update from NEIC, it'll be downgraded.

    Post  marc / berkeley on Sat 27 Feb 2010, 7:10 pm

    I just have to point out that altho very tragic, this hit during a syzygy window and is an absolute hit!

    Congratulations JOB!


    ( I am hoping to post this more formally later today, along with yesterdays M7.0 in Japan, later from my hotel.)

    I am on airport wifi right now, flights to hawaii are being cancelled because of the expected tsunami.

    I note that the constant background tone noise I was hearing is gone. amazing.

    hmm,I am just wondering why Valdamir and quaker look just like me? Maybe we should dive in and get an avatar...boys/girls are you with me?!!!! alien

    Personally,I have been looking over the new Laser weapons that are vaulted in a turit ball on the front of a drone or plane. It is crazy bunch of colors as a ball but most of the pics to chose from are connected to a damned air vehicle which I am not interested in.
    Another choice is the physics sponge bob,sure no one knows what the heck I am talking about but well anyway. Sorta looks like the onion ball from the steak house...outlanders? oh I forget.

    So strange I bought many different kinds of canned Chili this month,lots of coupons,have not done that for about five or more years...now I am chillin with Chili and praying that they make it through.
    Dona
    PS even bought chili with NO beans. Have not opened any of them yet. I normally make it all from scratch but odd to have four different coupons for chili and actually using them this month. Strange omen I suppose.

    This month I will be buying lots of lamb and chicken,got a half price deal for lamb.hmm,wonder what that means?
