"This right here is where we think the earthquake started, as of this time it's just a theory."

This article gets the "department of redundancy department award"

Every fact in the first paragraph is repeated in later paragraphs.

Headline is wrong.

6.9, not 6.7
2006-01-08 11:08:09 AM

Always gotta watch out for those killer mediterranean tsunamis.....

OPA! *does shot, throws it to floor, dances, eats gyro*

///not into teh buttsecks
////Greece was busy founding Western Civilization while the rest of Europe was still busy trying to figure out which vine was better to swing from so don't diss it.
//Of course it's useless now, but with that legacy, who cares?
//Greeks invented slashes too, I bet

The damage was devastating:

moogoob: Great lakes tsunamis... whoda thunk it?

The Captain wired in he had water coming in
And the good ship and crew was in peril
And later that night when his lights went out of sight
Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

/Not a tsunami, but it had to be done...

haha i love greek culture and cant wait to go there for study abroad. its just all i could remember about greece at the moment was the butsecks. they made nicer artwork then anybody before them and after them until the rennesance. Also, Hoplites are badasses.

///greeks prolly did invite the slashie

"(the earthquake's epicenter was far away under the sea), that's what saved us."

ummmokay, pollyanna...

That's exactly what I was thinking here in california when I watched the news coverage of hurricane Katrina. The hurricane happened waaay over on the other side of the country. That's what saved California. And the comet that hit Jupiter; wheeewwiee... another planet entirely. That's what saved us.

Greece. Subduction zone. Blah blah blah. Not news.

(Sorry. This sort of thing happens all of the time. Okay, not this big but really this isn't that big.)

Someone wake up Pat Robertson so he can tell us all why God has smote the Greeks.

ExxonMobil officials state that, due to the baklava shortage brought on by the recent earthquake in Greece, we can expect the price of gasoline to rise approximately $0.75 in the next week. Should kalamata olive and feta cheese futures also be effected, that price increase could rise to as much as $3.50 per gallon.

Ares must be up to something.

The tsunami threat for some of the shallow-focus events in the region (a la volcanic related), is in fact, very real, however. The magnitude 7.8 earthquake of July 9, 1956, south of Amorgos (such an event), produced a large tsunami that effected the entire Aegean sea.

Info here: from the USGS site

It's nice to know that when you're at your weakest (drunk, just woke up, etc.), the first thing that springs into your mind is anal sex.

Thanks for sharing!

Never mind the gyros. I wanna know if it knocked that fiddler off the damn roof.

Is Pat Robertson about to shiat his pants
2006-01-08 12:03:03 PM  
If anyone's interested, there's a link to magnitude 5 and greater earthquakes for the past week:

Big List

What's interesting, is no one is shiatting their pants about the magnitude 6.6 in the Gulf of California. Well, probably because it's not newsworthy and these kinds of events hit that area frequently enough.

angry_keebler: NEWSFLASH!!!

...And reported on by an unimportant person, too.

Congradulations to Greece for getting a newsflash greenlit... not like it is actual news that will impact anyone on Fark, and the headline isn't that creative, but still....
