Read this today in Newsweek and it made a lot of sense...
"Even more worrisome than geography and topography, though, is geological history. For this event cannot be viewed in isolation (Japanese earthquake) . There was a horrifically destructive pacific earthquake in New Zealand on Feb. 22, an even more violent magnitude-8.8 event in Chile almost exactly a year before. All three phenomena involved more or less the same family of circum-Pacific fault lines and plate boundaries-and though there is still no hard scientific evidence to explain why, there is little doubt now that earthquakes do tend to occur in clusters: a significant event on on side of a major tectonic plate is often-not invariably, but often enough to be noticeable- followed some weeks or months later by another on the plate's far side. It is as though the earth becomes like a great brass bell, which when struck by an enormous hammer blow on one side sets to vibrating and ringing from all over. Now there have been catastrophic event at three corners of the Pacific Plate- on in the northwest, on Friday; on in the southwest, last month; one in the southeast, last year. That leaves just one corner unaffected, the northeast."
"“This island, Hokkaido, looks like the head of a dragon with the body being the rest of Japan. The people of Asia have worshipped the dragon for 5,000 years. If one looks at the place where the earthquake took place, it looks like the soft underbelly of most vulnerable part of the dragon. Let's pray that the deep idolatry and the worship of hundreds of idols under the guise of Shintoism, Buddhism, and allegiances to being “sons of the dragon” will be broken and thousands will turn to the Lord.”
So as many of my fellow TPB fans probably know, Corey and Trevor are noticably missing from the 7th season of TPB. I was always curious why, and it turns out that, according to Michael Jackson (trevor), the cast and crew of TPB was pretty much screwed over. Here's the rub from trevor
