One of my friends is from Sri Lanka and he almost cancelled his birthday party in a few days because of this. Turns out his relatives are all okay, so the party is back on.

Word has it that the quake moved so much water that it disrupted the earth's rotation.

This is beyond horrible. Children make up most of the dead so far.

Yeah, grown men were the majority of the survivors because they were strong enough to hold on to trees and stuff.

There's no way the death count is stopping at 50,000

Its awful. 50,000 just wiped out. And it wasn't some tewrrorist attack or war or some shit. Its was an act of nature. It was the fucking ocean getting up and just over powering several nations. Canyou even hope to fight that?

Don't be stupid. It was George Bush. With global warming because he didn't sign the Kyoto Accord. And he also used the Patriot Act.

GWB's response is positively sickening. His lack of sensitivity and attention towards the disaster really shows you how low the creature really is.

On the other hand, it's nice to see prominent sites like Google and Yahoo putting up links to relief agencies on their homepages.

How You Can Help
A partial list of agencies accepting donations to aid tsunami victims in south AsiaNewsweek
Updated: 1:33 p.m. ET Dec. 28, 2004Most aid agencies agree that cash donations are the best way to show compassion in the wake of an international tragedy. Although many people share the impulse to send canned food, clothing and other material goods, giving money is often the most efficient and expedient means to help. For more information, consult the nonprofit umbrella group InterAction’s guide to giving and the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s list of pointers on donating.

The following is a partial list of organizations accepting donations to aid those most affected by the devastating tsunami that struck southern Asia on Sunday, killing at least 33,000 and displacing more than a million people in six countries.

100,000 and still climbing.

And they say a small percentage of the deaths might have been avoided too. But they were afraid of impacting tourism if they sounded the alarm.

"More terrifying still is the growing realization— reported sporadically in South Asia and Europe but almost unmentioned here— that some percentage of these deaths could have been prevented by timely warnings, but were not, out of fear of damaging tourism.

Bangkok's newspaper The Nation reported that Thailand's Meteorological Department, which supervises the country’s Seismological Department, was conducting a seminar at the hour the earthquake struck, Sunday morning, prevailing local time. Told the initial Richter Scale measurement was 8.2, a leading member of that department reportedly concluded there would be no tsunami, because another 2002 earthquake in the same Sumatra region that had measured 7.6 had produced no tsunami. The meeting devolved into the pros and cons of hurting the nation’s huge tourist economy in the event a warning proved unnecessary."
