Earthquake and Random Artwork

Before I talk about the Sichuan Earthquake, here's a random drawing of a cute nerdy girl.

Gross, yet appealing.  Other students throw stuff at her yet she still has an awkward smile on her face.  What a poor girl.  It reminds me of the character Ichigo during her flashback in the movie Kamizake Girls.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcmo7_xQZ0Q Maybe in the future, she will have the guts to go gangsta, completely snap, or go on to live a horribly awkward comedic life.  Shame on those other students... and myself for drawing it apparently.

On the Sichuan Earthquake, here's some video I found on Youtube to get a sense of what a 7.8 quake is like:

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBoCik8RKpc I thought it was hilarious when the student said to his other male roommate "WO AI NI!!!!"  But all joking aside, videos like these don't evoke much sympathy but show how crazy it is, lasting minutes.  Having grown up in Los Angeles, an earthquake hotspot, I've felt a few.  They still seem like a rarity actually.  Haven't experienced too many.  The most memorable ones happened when I was a kid.  I don't even know if it was the Northridge one.  LA is said to be due for a "Big One" in the next few decades.  Can't say that I feel ready.

Worser reports and images have appeared on the news of the more serious death and destruction. 

You can view more of these here:

So, what else to say other than "what a terrible thing."  What else to do but pray, give aid, or do nothing.  I prayed.  I'll confess, I don't love giving out money, but since I'm suggesting it, it would be hypocritical if I didn't myself.  I gave, and if you're looking to too, here's some places you can go to donate:

Thank you for posting up those links; while my experience with quakes are also of the LA ilk, the fact is that the most recent one in China is a terrible tragedy - it really is so sad...
