Japan Earthquake Causes Great Shift

      I recently stumbled upon some interesting news. Aparently, the 8.9 magnitude earthquake has caused Eastern Japan to actually shift 13 feet closer to North America. The earthquake was so powerful that it actually shifted the Earth's axis. This caused the planet to move faster and shortened the day by 1.6 micro seconds.
