Yeah, pretty unbelievable... Its pretty easy to see how stories of cataclysmic events in the bible came to be.. We see them all the time.. there were 100,000 deaths attributed to the tsunami 4 years ago...

My biggest concern is how inured to such news we've become. I can't even feel it, and that's more terrifying to me than the event itself.

I can't even imagine what it must be like working in an organization where it's your job to help.

Its a big thing here... I was just on the phone with the regional office in Myanmar.. The problem is with their Government, theyre not allowing much access..

Right. Classic military junta bullshit.

I see the estimates have gone upwards of 100,000.
