**BREAKING**|| EARTH actually shifted from its AXIS by 4 Inches

"At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).

Pin? So the earth moved less than the length of my penis. Kinda trivial don't you think?

If you would get a free miracle, to grow your penis by even 1 inch, Im sure you would do anything for it!

So yeah, 4 inch is a big deal!

Seems like the crust of the earth moved their measuring devices. If the earth's axis tilted it would wobble and we'd spin off into the sun.

You interpreted wrong!

They just spoke of their technique to measure and conclude the shift, by using their GPS data. Their sattelite is simply reading 4 inches off the pre-quake data.

Well, occam's razor then, which is more likely? The measuring devices have moved/malfunctioned/are being misread OR the mass of the entire earth was affected enough to change it's rotational angle?

Re: **BREAKING**|| EARTH actually shifted from its AXIS by 4 Inches
I want to know, what effects does shifting off axis mean to a planet?

And its orbital course? And does this mean, their is a change in our relationship with the moon?

If the earth's orbit changed that dramatically then the orbit of the GPS satellite's would probably be screwed. They'd probably fall into the earth or be left behind as space junk. The moon too for that matter. I am not buying this.

Every earthquake shifts the axis. Question I have, does it shift the same way? Or did this one, shift back what Haiti did?

Take a child's toy a spinning top and spin it on the floor. Watch the wobbling path the top takes as it spins on its axis. Watch as it degrades. As the power declines it falls over more and more until it stops. If the earth was knocked out of a sustainable spin it would be adios amigos.

Might have been Nightline on ABC last night which reported the day is now shorter due to the earthquake.

Re: **BREAKING**|| EARTH actually shifted from its AXIS by 4 Inches
Last year when Haiti earthquake happened, it moved it just a small, tiny bit and WOW at the earth changes it made. It was very apparent to me just how much our weather and environment changed just from that tiny bit... but 4 inches! I don't think anyone realizes just how important this is yet. If earthquakes keep happening and increasing in size and frequency, and the axis shifts each time, then 2012 very well could be a most definite possibility for our planet. It's wobble and poles and everything all going crazy like a chain reaction snowball with no end in sight.

The end is in sight. It's in the sky every day. Earth rotates off it's axis and in say a few million years it slams into the sun. Of course all life on the planet will be wiped out immediately.

Immediately, as in as soon as the earth takes a drastically different orbit. Not when it hits the sun, although that would do the job too. :-)
