    I saw this story on a kids news show and couldn't quite believe it so went looking for corroborating stories. Seems the earth quake in Chile might have shortened the day by 1.26 millionths of a second and estimates also state that the Earths axis has shifted by about 3 inches. Wow! Weird stuff, fun for a doomsday nut like me lol

        Kids news is the only news worth watching IMO, they don't do as much fear mongering hmm

        Supposedly the day is SUPPOSED to get longer as the earths spins slows, thats what I want, a longer day!

      For such a positive person, that statement was the last thing I expected you to say. lol lol

      But, I did read the story about the Earth shifting it's axis because of the quake in Chile.

      It was interesting to say the least. smile wink

            I'm good, but I am low about A Texan's forum ban. He was about to congratulate me on my Hundred, and they said he was banned, so he fanned me so he could congratulate me.

              Don't worry about it his being banned. It isn't worth the energy. It happens to everyone who over-steps the rules of the forum.

              Try not to let it get to you. smile

                I know. I just never even had a run in. I had run ins with people I never met. I came back to a post and found they had all been baiting me, so I took a break from the forum. Mind you the ones baiting me, had never interacted with me, the conversation was with others and from the night before.

                I didn't report it. Why would I?
                I had great respect for those who decided I was a joke having never read a single hub of mine.
                I even recommended them to others, having noticed their high intelligence of the game.

                This too got to me.
