I enjoy watching TV shows chronicling natural disasters. I’m fascinated by them as apparently a lot of us are. These programs are very popular. Hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes and earthquakes.
Yes, the results of these disasters can be tragic and the suffering caused by them can be unimaginable, but these phenomena are still fascinating to a lot of us.
A recent example of these programs was rebroadcast just the other day on the History Channel. It was entitled Megaquake 10.0. The premise of the show was to examine and compare past powerful earthquakes and the destruction they cause, to a magnitude 10.0 Megaquake, with as much as 30 times more devastating force then most recent major earthquakes.
