    According to Wikipedia (so it must be true), there were signs of it reaching 24 meters in Aceh.

    Impact depends on if it's high tide or low tide.

    A 3-foot wave is on the low end of the gnarly scale, dude.

    You might have to talk to Vince McMahon about that one.

    I used to score 40 million on the Earthshaker pinball game, especially when the vanilla shakes were made just right.

    WWF's Earthquake RIP (he died after a long battle with cancer not more than a year ago).

    Probably.

    I mean, they fed his dad something that made him hurl on worldwide television, and for that, you knew one day they'd pay. Go after George Herbert Walker Bush, and George W. Bush is coming after you.

    News like this about Japan always makes me tense. My sister in law is Japanese and her family is scattered throughout the country. Great people. Hope it's nothing serious.

    It's amazing how many earthquakes they have ... they never seem to be of the 2.5 or 3.3 variety. It's always a big-ass earthquake.

    What kind of "intelligent design" is plate tectonics anyway?

    God should have made the world like BathFitter. All the land in one seamless piece.

    God is trying to punish the Japanese for their heretical Shinto and Buddhist beliefs. [/patrobertson]
