    I donated some money, and I'm going to try to donate some blood (if they let me, they farked a test of mine last time, so I'm not sure if I am allowed to donate).

    Anyway, I think people have the decency to help those in need even without you being an ass about it, jedi.

    Predicting Earthquakes is still very difficult. But if they happen under the ocean, some kind of Tsunami warning system should be triggered.

    I've donated some money. The Dutch people together donated over 9 Million Euro's allready. The government is going to give more than 25 million!! :)

    The quake was in the Indian ocean, which ironically is right by the pacific ocean which is loaded with equipment floating out in the sea capable of detecting Tsunami's. The Indian Ocean however has nothing like this. There are things out there to detect earth quakes though. Scientist saw that there was a 9.0 quake out there, but didnt think that a Tsunami was coming as a result. If this happened in the pacific people would have been warned about it hours in advance and no one would have died.

    Actually, scientists knew there was a tsunami, but the warning system was not in place in the affected areas, so people couldn't be warned of any impending disaster, or at least that's what I heard.

    Yeah from what I heard US geologists warned governments in the region where possible, but there was no way to get word out to the public.

    Confirmed. The mistakes of the few had a very high price indeed.

    On the turning away
    from the pale and downtrodden
    and the words they say
    which we won't understand
    "Don't accept that what's happening
    is just a case of others suffering
    or you'll find that you're joining in
    the turning away"

    It's a sin that somehow
    light is changing to shadow
    and casting it's shroud
    over all we have known
    unaware how the ranks have grown
    driven on by a heart of stone
    we could find that we're all alone
    in the dream of the proud

    On the wings of the night
    as the daytime is stirring
    where the speechless unite
    in a silent accord
    using words you will find are strange
    and mesmerised as they light the flame
    feel the new wind of change
    on the wings of the night

    No more turning away
    from the weak and the weary
    no more turning away
    from the coldness inside
    just a world that we all must share
    it's not enough just to stand and stare
    is it only a dream that there'll be
    no more turning away?

    Donated heavily

    was watching the news today and they did a report on this 14 year old boy in Washington State who donated more money then France did, who only gave a measly (compared to what other countries have given, which have been as high as like 450 million dollar from one country) $150,000.

    Maybe you meant North Korea. France has donated around $115m, including private donations.

    Who's giving what?

    Btw, every dollar counts. :)
