as if the tsunami wasn’t bad…

i found this on LiveScience.com:

The Dec. 26 earthquake off the coast of Indonesia was the fourth largest in one hundred years. Scientists have determined that this major shift in the Earth’s plates changed the planet’s shape – enough to shorten the day by fractions of a second and to shift the North Pole by an inch.

of course the north pole moves anyway. but shoot. there isn’t enough time in the day as it is!

    Thats just crazy how Miz. Nature works! Wonder what will happen next, by chance do you know what happened a hundred years ago when the last big one hit? What was the aftermath of that?
