Star Wars had its sandstorms (2 of them) Waterworld had it’s, well, everything. And Titanic had it’s funky mushrooms. So now it seems Lord of the Rings has it’s Earthquake.

Reported to me by the ever faithful BreeLander, the NZ North Island had an earthquake. Here’s the techie stuff:

99/10/25 20:31:41 38.51S 175.69E 143.0 5.6Mb B NORTH ISLAND, NEW ZEALAND

5.6 on the richter scale, and no nobody was hurt, no damage to crew cast or anything. Even Bill the pony is ok.
