Given the terrible earthquake that has just occurred in Japan and the recent quakes in Christchurch, Wellington, China and elsewhere, I predict that in the next week we will have fringe groups making “End of the World” predictions and making unwarranted connections between the different quakes around the world.
I wonder how many of these events the psychics and other woo peddlers predicted (or will claim they predicted).
And it isn’t even a full moon yet.
On a more serious note:
My deepest sympathies for all those people in Japan. Although the earthquake was off the coast, the 8.8 magnitude has been enough to severely shake several cities and produce devastating tsunamis. They were kind enough to send rescue teams to our aid, I’m sure this will be reciprocated as required.
