More Earthquake Ridiculousness
Geophysicists are claiming the Sumatran earthquake actually sped the earth's rotation by 3 milliseconds a day, and that calendar keepers will actually have to add a "leap second" to keep the atomic clock accurate. Jeez - as if getting things done in a 24 hour day wasn't enough.
The quake also moved the Andaman and Nicobar islands as much as 100 feet.
Wrap your mind around THAT!
