Looking at that made me realize that lots of important things happened last year... the earthquake, the lunar eclipse...most events are natural phenomenons, which means that nature plays a big role in out lives.i think 2011 has great things for us, but we'll just have to wait and see Smile

its amazing how many natural disasters happen in one year, it made me realize how much has happened since civilization or before that. And maybe now that these disasters are known to us we have better knowledge of them and can try to do better for a next one, or maybe even stop them.
