    It's the end of the world. The Mayans predicted it.

    its business as usual, but the press is focusing on them more then they usually did.

    there are on average more than 10 earthquakes of this magnitude per MONTH.

    I can't imagine this will have a massive effect on pricesm unless manufacturers really use this an an excuse.
    16% may be a tad alot but im sure we have a helluva lot just sitting in stock.

    I've been in a 6.2 earthquake, they aren't all that exciting, although it did worry me that my TV was going to tip over, other than that just rattled the dishes, nothing broken. :p

    If you think the world is going to end in 2012 you need to educate yourself on what the Mayan calendar is and the fact that there is no "prophecy" just the changing of one clock system to another.
    The Judeo-Xian penchant for death and destruction is being overlaid on a very accurate time keeping system. Fire and brimstone is a Xian thing not a Mayan one.

    Note to BT, everyone thought you were talking about the plant closing due to high numbers of people playing Quake, use the word "Earthquake" to denote the difference.

    no there won't, you'll bring fortune to that island :)

    also thought it was to do with the game, really need to use normal letters if it's not to do with the game Quake.

    there goes my plan for a 27inch IPS panel...... 900 Dell is already too expensive.

    Agreed!

    As many other people, I also thought this was about Quake the game, people going on rampage with blazing guns destroying everything in their path.

    It's also true that earthquakes like these happens many times a month but media only "cares" for them when they inflict some sort of damage or scariness to the human being... So what? The planed had this phenomeni even before the human race, deal it with! Even in here, in Portugal, there was a mini-typhoon on Sesimbra which is totally uncommon but it happened!
