First of all, numbnuts, it started in Indonesia. Indonesia is a "country" composed of a shit load of tiny islands. There is, in fact, no electricity, no running water in the pipes, and nowhere to run, where the tsunamis hit. Oh, yeah, and they friggin traveled (the tsunamis) to AFRICA. I know it sounds hard to believe for someone who doesn't know how to use a map to find out what mountain range he lives on, but AFRICA is one hell of a lot further than 50 miles away from Indonesia.andy said:no, it's not, because it's simple to move someplace where there's still electricity, still drinking water in the pipes, where money still has value. This is just a minor, localized problem, of no meaning whatsoever to people a mere 50 miles away.
The above quote (by Andy in another thread but about this event) expresses, in my opinion, the attitude of a loser, a bigtime loser. It must be, in my guess, a lonely and miserable life you would lead with an attitude like this. The Tsunamis reportedly were spread across thousands of miles and estimates are now that 15,000 may have died (still going up). This is something that affects (note affects not effects) lots of people who were not even close to the event. Those people will express a variety of emotions over this, and many will do what they can to lend assistance in some way. Many will travel to the areas most badly effected to lend physical assistance, others will donate goods or cash, and others will just pray, some will do all three. Some, the smallest bunch probably, will just say it had no affect on them or had no meaning. I have my opinion of those who would think the last, but I don't have to express it here; let it just suffice for me to say that it is a very low opinion at that.no, it's not, because it's simple to move someplace where there's still electricity, still drinking water in the pipes, where money still has value. This is just a minor, localized problem, of no meaning whatsoever to people a mere 50 miles away
