I can't believe the news from southern Asia today. [29 December 2004|08:12 pm]

You know you want to have a shot at this questionnaire from yesterday's entry.

Axver has a Hut Dab-tastic new shirt.Collapse )

Right now, I am watching footage and reading reports of the Asian earthquake/tsunami disaster, and I am simply speechless. I hope all of you are paying close attention to this because it is likely to be the worst natural disaster in our lifetimes. This disaster is incomprehensible. SBS, the network I consider to be the most reliable for news in Australia, is reporting a death toll approaching seventy thousand and it's only going to grow. As an illustration of that, the Indian-owned island of Great Nicobar was closest to the epicentre of the earthquake and remains out of contact. It is home to forty-five thousand people. Yes, you read that correctly, forty-five thousand people on one island alone are unaccounted-for.

More information on the disaster. I ask you to read this. It's going to be disjointed and haphazard, but ... please, read this, especially if you are uninformed about the disaster.Collapse )

I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes and make it go away
[...]
And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
Today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die ...

- U2, Sunday Bloody Sunday

Freakily apt.
