Of 69,197 confirmed deaths, 68,636 were in Sichuan province, the rest were in neighboring provinces.

  1. Those “huge rocks” are chunks of unreinforced concrete, the 2nd world’s answer to population control. Those of us in the USA are glad to live in a society that allows you to sue the motherf*ucking pants off a contractor if they build the 21st century equivalent of a mud hut that collapses and kills your family. These poor folks have the misfortune to live in rural China, where a human life is valued somewhere between a can of Spaghetti-Os and a pack of Marlboros.

  2. Damn, I can’t make a joke about that destruction. Just too much death. I mean 100 people dying is alot, this this was over 60,000?? Might as well have dropped a bomb on the place, I think it would have induced less suffering that way

  3. I?m from Chile and as you might remember we had an 8.8 earthquake and tsunami in February, I have to say that luckily we didn?t have that many deaths here. It?s a frightening experience especially when you got kids and I?m glad that we were all together and my kids were not in school. Makes me sad when inocent people die.
