Self Censor

I got a text this morning.

Japan hit by 8.9 earthquake. Pray for people in Japan. 5th largest earthquake in world history!

What I wanted to say is:
1. It's the 5th largest earthquake since we started recording earthquakes, which started in 1900.
2. The earthquake hit 200 miles off the coast of Japan. The tsunami is likely to cause as much if not more damage than the earthquake.
3. Scientists don't use the Richter scale anymore, they use the MMS.

What I said was: nothing. See, I'm becoming a better person. I will pray for Japan, and I won't be a know-it-all to everyone, only to you.
