That's tested and considering how many of the dumb things the countries have as well and more then likely if one goes off most will be flying through the sky.
One nuke shoots the rest fire and we humans go through nuclear winter and all that and maybe extinction. Mother nature hasn't done anything that quickly.

I have not slept well ever since this quake hit Japan. I guess I'm venting and typing to myself. God I hope they get through this and I pray all those families stay strong. Has anyone in the UN/Red Cross been stationed there yet? Not like you're gonna browse OCN on your free time, but hey

God I love Phil, and it's so true man. In the end, we're all just humans living on earth. Obviously yes, philosophically, hard to comprehend.

Bing use Japan earthquake as Marketing Opportunity

Ofcourse Microsoft said sorry..... well, they condemned people for misinterpreting their tweet, and gave out $100,000 to the cause. Thats like £60k coming from a $125 Billion company.

They aren't the only company/person to do so. Lady GaGa is doing it too.

It seems that the troubles Japan has been through is now affecting electronics and cars market. Prices are expected to rise due to the fact that a lot of companies closed in order to not use electric power.

Funny thing is, I love how the situation in Libya is effecting stock market prices. But when it comes down to what's happening in Japan. The market did take a little hit, but came right back up.
