Great news. Major earthquake hits off Japan. The tsunami wave will cool down the melting reactors. This impact will result in more damage which can be repaired, so the Japanese economy will be better off. Another earthquake hits Mexico, but nobody cares because the only people left in Mexico are drug dealers. The rest have come across the border into Arizona and are living in SSS’ house. The message to take away from these great developments according to Larry Kudlow and CNBC:
BUY THE FUCKING DIP
Strong quake hits off Japan; new tsunami alert issued
Tokyo— The Associated Press
Japan was rattled by a strong aftershock and tsunami warning Thursday night nearly a month after a devastating earthquake and tsunami flattened the northeastern coast.
The Japan meteorological agency issued a tsunami warning for a wave of up to one meter. The warning was issued for a coastal area already torn apart by last month’s tsunami.

Officials say Thursday’s quake was a 7.4-magnitude and hit 40 kilometres under the water and off the coast of Miyagi prefecture. The quake that preceded last month’s tsunami was a 9.0-magnitude.
Buildings as far away as Tokyo shook for about a minute.
Emergency workers at the stricken Japan nuclear plant in Fukushima were ordered to evacuate, according to Japanese broadcaster NHK.
U.S. Geological Survey gave the preliminary magnitude as 7.4 and it struck off the eastern coast 100 kilometres from Sendai and 140 kilometres from Fukushima. It was about 345 kilometres from Tokyo.
The depth was 40 kilometres. Shallower quakes tend to be more destructive.
Hundreds of aftershocks have shaken the northeast region devastated by the March 11 earthquake, but few have been stronger than 7.0.
6.5 earthquake shakes southern Mexico
A 6.5 earthquake rattled Mexico on Thursday morning.
The quake occurred in the Vera Cruz region at 6:11 a.m. The quake was felt strongly in Chiapas and other parts of southeast Mexico. But the U.S. Geological Survey said it was not felt in the United States or along the California-Mexico border region.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
The quake was about 379 miles from Mexico City.
