Prayers and best wishes to Japan. It's not even 2012 yet and between Japan, Chile, Haiti and New Zealand, it appears that the Earth is pissed off. Or something.
Now we'll have endless news stories in the U.S.A. about what would happen if the "big one" hit (insert your city here).
As I live in New York, it's just another unpleasant possibility to ignore. Tsunami's, earthquakes, nuclear attacks... we're all dead pretty much instantly; why bother stressing.
