Cathaleon: 7.9 Earthquake on news Putin dissolved the Russian Government?

It's Cheney, I know he's behind all this.

We just had another earthquake here (new window)about 20 minutes ago, and you don't see me getting all excited.
Ok, maybe a little. We've had several that you can feel over the last couple of weeks centered right in my back yard. That 8 may be on the way and I'll have beach front property.

/gotta go buy more bottled water

Karl Rove's weather machine, actually.

Surprised both stories didn't insta-green. Mebbe everyone's still asleep.

Seeing as how the article is from Aug 9th the news flash may have been a bit much....

Ahh, I gotcha. I understand why you were saying that now. I had already read about it so I didn't click the actual link subby put up. :d

Standing up of course.

What kind of mining operations do they have in Indonesia that would fail to cause such a large quake?

It is the Bush/Zionist/Pentaverin alliance testing their new underwater nuclear lasers.
They are the tool the infidels are going to use to try and destroy Islam and conquer the world!

I like living somewhere the earth doesn't move violently at inopportune times.

If this happened to the US, Indonesia would have thought it Allah's doing. Our God is meaner than your God.

Cathaleon: 7.9 Earthquake on news Putin dissolved the Russian Government?

You just KNOW there are people in Russia saying "Oh sure, he announces this right at the same time there's an earthquake story to report!"

The Father of All Earthquakes.

from the full article:

The 7.5-magnitude tremor caused no damage and did not trigger a tsunami, probably because of its depth, 290 kilometers beneath the Java Sea according to geophysicists.



Wait, so the full article is about an old earthquake? WTF is going on?
 
2007-09-12 09:28:14 AM
Ouch -- looks potentially bad for Bengkulu. How large is that city? The coastal province of Benkulu has a population of about 1.4M, so I'm guessing a fair percentage of that is in the city...

They didn't issue a warning, Subby


Others shouted ``Allah Akbar'' or ``God is great'' as they ran outside.

It's good to know that after all the advances in science, we still think natural phenomena come from the gods. I wouldn't want to be there during an eclipse, that's for sure.
 
2007-09-12 09:29:27 AM
And CNN is going completely spastic trying to fill dead air with the total void of information on this one.

Masters of padding, these guys. Keep at it.

therealitysoldier: If this happened to the US, Indonesia would have thought it Allah's doing.

Yeah. And so would a lot of fundie Christian preachers.

You mean they wouldn't blame the gays, Satan and/or liberals?

Next to the CNN article is one about Led Zeppelin reforming for a concert.

Well, that explains it. Hammer of the Gods man, hammer of the Gods.

AndreMA: You mean they wouldn't blame the gays, Satan and/or liberals?

Nope. I tuned into the 700 Club when Hurricane Floyd was hammering Robertson's complex. I wanted to see how he would explain it.

Guess what? It wasn't a message from God. It was just nature taking its course.

So farkin' predictable.
 
2007-09-12 09:40:30 AM
Submitter, you are a lying sack of crap.


From TFA: Geophysicists almost immediately ruled out the possibility of a tsunami.
 
Ni!
2007-09-12 09:41:55 AM
The news people are gritting their teeth while they report the "good news" that the tsunami warning has been lifted. They wanted their devastation so very badly.

Tsunami watch, I should say. Because someone will correct that. :)

Yahoo says that a 9 foot wave hit Padang. That sounds like a Tsunami to me.

To those who posted California's "quakes" last week, please take notice.

7.9 = earthquake
4.2 & 3.5 = tectonic qweefs

/We now return to your regularly schedule Fark, already in progress
 
2007-09-12 09:55:43 AM
Is the US going to get blamed for making this earthquake, just like last time?
