How far do you imagine people “going about their business” are from a radio or TV?
Do you think towns are without police to take charge in emergency? If you were in Indonesia and the military (they have military based everywhere) started telling you what to do you (screaming in the street, if you want to put it that way) you wouldn’t want to let them know you thought they were nuts. You’d want to do what you were told, and do it quick.
Getting angry may not be much use, but neither is getting complacent
I think breaking into serious discussion with [i aint reading all this shit] is rude, joking or not. Nice, you want? Well, I can promise not to be idiotic…SillyWabbit said:<--puts on moderator hat.
Sun, there is no need to get personal and rude. She did say she was joking. Can you play nice please?

SillyWabbit said:That's debatable, but the point is that she didn't call you names. Please don't resort to name calling on this forum. Everybody deserves respect and the freedom to be able to enjoy the forum without being insulted.
Sun-SSS said:As I've said, there is a system in place.
RitalinKid said:Yes, and if you had read my post or cnn.com, you would know that India and Sri Lanka are not involved in it. They have no bouys or advanced warning systems in place. In 2 to 2.5 years, they will, but only after this tragedy.
Sun, I know it bothers you that this happened, but why are you being so snappy? It's no one's fault, especially no one on this board. In your defense, you didn't call anyone a name, but your comments to lahondas would've have been better received if you were joking. Then, it would've been pretty funny.
Sun SS said:Of course you're not. Some of the words are of more than two syllables. Go to the casino.
SillyWabbit said:Well, in fact he did insult her
Telling somebody that they can't understand because the words have more than two syllables is calling somebody an idiot, isn't it?
Found this... This happened in the morning of Sunday, 26th, around 10 o’clock in the morning Sri Lanka time. ... Not sure when 10 o'clock sri lanka time is but about 4 in the morning england time. Hope your friend is okay.Ice said:Does anyone know what time the Tsunami hit on Boxing Day? A friend of mine from work was flying out to Sri Lanka either Christmas Day or Boxing Day, and no one has been able to get in contact with her to find out how she is and if her family (whom she is going to stay with) are okay
