    It's the rapture!

    So there are a bunch of small earthquakes. Doesn't mean much to me. I've really no idea how to put it in any context. All he says is "this is the area of my concern"... and then says he's praying for us. What are his qualifications... who is this guy? If you check out his YouTube profile he seems like a bit of a nutjob.

    For me it is almost counterintuitive, his concern. Maybe all the little earthquakes blow off the stress so there is no big one!!!!

    Worrying about it doesn't do any good at all.....I'm a firm believer in fate. When it's my time to go, I'll go, whether it's in DR, NJ or Disneyworld.

    I thought the 3D earthquake view was cool.

    The like I provided says about the same thing without that nasal twang that grates on my nerves! Anyway, yes, things are shifting. like the do all the time.

    There are big quakes off of Honshu...so? Do you see the Japanese all up tight? Nah...

    There are quakes all the time in Chile and California...same thing.

    Lots of smaller is much better than one BIG one...

    Blessings folks, and be at ease...It's Beer:25 in the evening...be cool and be safe..

    Actually, I've seen several rodents in DR so big that they could wear red pants and big yellow shoes......

    You may be right....
