My Widdle Bwain

Another Day, Another Earthquake, Whatever

Several news agencies apparently felt the need to stir up trouble by reporting a 6.5 aftershock from the March 11 Japan earthquake. I'm baffled as to why they felt the urge to do so now... This has been going on at least daily since 3/11. Can't someone be arsed to call USGS and ask them for an Earthquakes 101 lesson?

I still haven't posted my rant about how bad the news coverage has been. I should get around to it at some point. I don't usually have so much understanding of the area being covered in the news, and so have never been in a position to spot how over dramatic and misleading the news is. It's... daunting.
