    Another 6.1 quake hit Haiti and has caused more damage and more people have been killed. I think they should just get everyone out of there and not try to rebuild anything there. They will have to try and help them find a different place to live. It is not really safe to live there and if they do rebuild anything, it will probably all get destroyed again and more people killed. Haiti is on a dangerous fault line and scientists have been saying it is not safe to live there and there is the potential for some more severe quakes in the future.

    The largest aftershock before today was magnitude 5.9.

    Aftershocks happen.

    Are you nuts? Where exactly do you suggest the millions who live in Haiti go? Miami? Cleveland? How about we send them to Appleton, WI??? Los Angeles is also on a major fault line...would you suggest they all relocate too? Earthquakes happen. It's a tragedy, but life will go on and they will rebuild, just like New Orleans is coming back after Katrina.

    But isn't their tenuous grip on life all part of god's plan? If it is, then, we should just let nature take it's course. It is god's will. Stop suggesting that god's plan is imperfect you fucking heretic.

    More people have not been killed unless you count the one lady who had a heart attack.

    Personally, I like the notion of sending the Haitians to Appleton, WI. G-Force can use his photography skills, teach them to strike-a-pose, and turn them all into supermodels icon_lol.gif

    Have you ever been to Appleton, WI? I have, and wouldn't wish it on anyone. It was awful.

    Ah, it's not so bad.--a lot of nice people here. Weather in the winter really sucks, though, but the weather does keep a lot of people employed.

    But I'm not sure why anyone would want to rebuild in Haiti. Scientists says the danger from earthquakes is very great right there and likely to receive another there. The danger from quakes in CA is NOTHING compared to Haiti. Yeah CA could get one, too, like this, but their buildings are built 10 times better than Haiti and it would not cause as much devastation.

    But the type of construction there will never hold up under such quakes. From what I hear from people who saw this first hand it was like dominoes.
    I know many are not going to stay there. You really have to be nuts to do so when they know this will happen there again.

    Some people will build on flood plains, too, and after about the 5th time of losing their house, they finally move out and some other gullible person moves in. icon_rolleyes.gif

    No, living in an area where there is a history of devastation like this and numerous warnings by scientists that it will most likely happen again is NOT God's plan. God doesn't want anyone to be stupid. icon_smile.gif

    But yeah mankind shows stupidity by never learning from the past and doing the same things over and over again, History is HIS STORY. The snowmobilers were told many times the ice is very unsafe right now. What did they do? Take their snowmobiles on the ice. Nobody has to worry about them doing that again. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

    Or perhaps they can learn.

    Japan has terrible earthquakes, and they changed their building materials and design to match.

    This was the first earthquake of this magnitude in 240 years. It's not an every day occurrence. And doesn't warrant moving an entire civilization. Hopefully, the international community will help them rebuild with proper materials and code.

    No, I never even heard of it until G-Force. Apparently, it's the home of the world renowned "Fox Valley Technical College". Who knew icon_lol.gif

    You mean like suggesting we move 3 million Haitians elsewhere? icon_rolleyes.gif

    You really have it out for FVTC, don't you? FYI there are world renowned educators teaching there and WI is rated very close to the top in its higher educational system, including FVTC. These are provable facts. So knock education here all you want but statistics tell a different story than your biased opinion. You think any educator who is a Christian sucks. Admit it.

    That is half the size of the nation of Israel at the time of the exodus and they had no problem getting to Canaan all on foot. NO ONE has to remain on a earthquake fault line that is going to quake again, unless you are stupid. Don't underestimate the size of our earth. If they got on the island, they can get off of it.

    How many planes do you think we need? You don't think we have enough? lol We can always make 2 trips, too. This will cost a whole lot less than rebuilding and then watch it all fall over like dominoes AGAIN! Do people actually want to see this AGAIN?

    There's plenty of VACANT places to put 3 million people and great soil ,too where they can grow crops for food. If the American Indians can do it, so can Haitians. Great fishing , too! They will become richer than they ever have been in the past. Better than just giving them handouts, where they never learn how to feed themselves.

    Well if Haiti needs to be evacuated permanently after a series of earthquakes, then why wasn't New Orleans and all its surrounding suburbs not permanently evacuated after hurricane Katrina. Haiti might sit next to an active fault line but at least it is well above sea level. On the other hand New Orleans along with suburban Metarie, Kenner, and all the smaller suburbs in Jefferson Parish and along the Mississippi River are mostly 4 to 10 feet below sea level. I think being below sea level in hurricane country is far more dangerous than any earthquake fault line.

    Fine. If they really want to see this all over again, rebuild there AGAIN where scientists say the risk is VERY HIGH for this to happen AGAIN and most likely sooner than 240 years. Don't listen to their warnings and rebuild in the exact same location. icon_cry.gif I really don't understand. people's thinking. How many times do you have to be devastated before you realize, maybe this isn't the best place to live?

    New Orleans is not Haiti. icon_lol.gif There is no comparison.
