The US Geological Survey said it had detected a 4.2 magnitude tremor in North Korea at 10:35 a.m. local time (0135 GMT). The Japan Meteorological Agency said its data showed a tremor took place around Gilju, on the peninsula's northeast coast around 70 miles from the Chinese border.

Greenwich Mean Time is five (5) hours ahead of Central US time (Daylight Savings, as in now). That means the N. Korean nuke went off at 8:35pm Central last night. I wonder if that's why I had such stress falling asleep last night? A great disturbance in the Force, eh?

My living room has about 40 boxes of books right now. That's just the SF - most of the fantasy went to Seattle last year.

Can't say that I've read as many as you have, though.

I couldn't sleep for crap last night, but I just assumed it was the coffee I drank in the afternoon.

Oh, and the 22 month old with three emerging teeth that screamed and screamed at 4am. I think that prevented some sleep, too.

Imagine that - a 22-month-old keeping you up at night! *g*

I can only hope that Condi is having a rough time of it now. As much of a toady as she is, I can't help but believe she's smart enough to see how they fucked up.

You've made my day by pointing out how totalitarianism is dying - yay! Ding-dong, the King is dead, the evil King, the Bushy King. Ding-dong... oops, never mind.

Nice to know that Kim Jong Il has a solid surface upon which to test stuff. Yay.

For a rousing thought, check out normalcyispasse's LJ about his recent trip to Japan. He visited past nuke sites and was returning from his trip just as N. Korea's nuke was going off.
