There was a very good BBC documentary called "Do we really need the Moon" shown about a month ago it's no longer on iPlayer but is on Youtube, I just found this site that has the video embedded and is worth watching.

I don't normally believe in things like that, but it is certainly an interesting reading.
Maybe the current tsunami is not the worst we will see then.....hmmmm.....

My best pal has a close friend living in Tokyo and has been trying to get through to him by phone and via Skype, without success Sad

It's probably because so much of their power is down - at least one hopes that's what it is............

It more than likely is for those reasons plus everyone else is no doubt using the networks and clogging up what is available making it hard to get through.

There is no significant link between the moon and earthquakes...

That being said the quake is very badly economically timed but Japan has modern cites; buildings have larger resonant periods and are strong in comparison to other places around the world.

Imagine if this happened in somewhere less equipped to deal with the situation.

This quake registered as the sixth biggest in the world, since 1900.

The US Geological survey site makes interesting reading.

Ive linked to the bit with the largest quakes in the last 7 days. When you look at the map you can see why the Pacific basin is regarded as the ring of fire.

I've just heard from our friends via e-mail that they are all OK and their homes escaped damage (what a relief) . It does look as if maybe Tokyo escaped fairly lightly compared to Sendai region.

Just got an email (via iPhone) from our friend in Tokyo. He's Ok.

So it looks like some of the mobile networks are up and running.

Was sat there with my lil niece watching the bedtime hour on ceebeebies, been baby sitting her all day, so not seen or heard nowt until my bro rang and told me, flicked bbc news on and saw what was happening. My niece will be 4 in May but she knew this was not some film, it scared her so i turned it back onto waybaloo until she was picked up.

The Japanese are a strong and proud nation, they will soon recover and come back bigger than before. In the meantime, lets hope the international community dont f*** up again.
