I have come to realize something important about earthquakes. They happen all the time. I haven't been in one lately, but I check religiously the earthquake site, http://earthquake.usgs.gov/recenteqsww/ , and those things happen all the time. I thought they were rare but no, I mean all the time! That whole Ring of Fire thing wasn't a joke! So Japan more or less gets an earthquake of some scale about every two weeks or so. And every three weeks we get a typhoon. There is a typhoon going up Japan right now. It is raining like Japan gets paid by the liter. I use to be afraid of natural disasters now I am in two a month! Luckily all the natural disasters I have been in so far have been heavy on the natural and light on the disasters. Let's hope it stays that way.
