    As most of you probably know, there was a massive earthquake in the Indian ocean, causing massive tsunamis to hit the coastlines of many nations surrounding it. The death toll is huge, with more problems to come due to disease and poor living conditions.

    Amazon.com has set up a relief fund, with all donations going directly to the Red Cross. If you already have an account there, it only takes a couple of clicks to donate.

    I'm sure the were quite a few Star Wars fans who were taken from this life all too quickly and they will not be able to experience what we will in the future. This would be a great way to help the families and survivors cope with this horrible disaster.

    Just so you know, no replies needed.

    i know you said no replies needed but i would just like to say that the Tsunami was frickin huge, infact it was so huge that i slightly changed the angle the earth sits at on its axis, not by much though, only like .5 degrees but thats huge and should be reason enough to donate some dollars.


    it also move a small island about 24feet north of its original position.

    As if the weather patterns for the past 15+ months haven't been indicative of a much LARGER issue with our little Milky Way Marble.

    At least concerning people who believe global warming actually exists.

    I prefer to think that there is a natural cycle of the earth, from ice age to tropic temperature... lots of fun.

    Also a million years ago, there were thousands of active volcanos many many more than there are today. A single volcano spewing ash can deposit 2,000 tons of sulfur dioxide gas DAILY. Times this by a thousand and it's terrible.

    Mother nature can be just as bad a polluter as us.

    Think about forest fires back then. They would rage uncontrolled. Destroying thousands of square miles of forest. Smoke could probably be seen from space. (As the burning of todays rain forests is seen)

    Sad enough to say, extinction of species is also a natural cycle (except when humans kill them directly, if another species comes in and kills them thats natural.) Look at the dinosaurs. They're dead.

    I think there is a natural cycle of death on earth,but it being pushed at a rapid rate.

    Nah, I think it's natural that humans kill everything they come in contact with. Sure, we wear pants and sometimes comb our hair, but we're just like killer bees that take over normal hives, and those giant dog-sized rats that are eating the Florida Keys. A dominant species gets put here, reigns for a few thousand years, and gets replaced by another. We just happen to drive cars and work in cubicles instead of swoop down out of the sky to eat baby kittens.
