    Qt arrived while I went to grab tea.

    Qt Core: hi
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Qt [sorry I was afk]
    Qt Core: np. just arrived
    Gaya Ethaniel: How are you?
    Qt Core: quite good, you ?
    Gaya Ethaniel: I'm okish, thanks.
    Qt Core: a little sad as this night there was a earthquake here in Italy
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh, I didn't know...
    Gaya Ethaniel: I'm sorry to hear that... hope no one is seriously injured?
    Qt Core: sadly yes, there are several death
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes I am reading a newspaper now... near Rome?
    Qt Core: almost (in an international point of view) but not enough to demage it
    Gaya Ethaniel nods... events like this put things in perspective for me.
    Qt Core: maybe as to not to think about how little we are i just think about how little we know
    Qt Core: about our own planet and its working
    Gaya Ethaniel nods.
    Qt Core: at the momente news are still a little confiused but some expert told that it was really unexpected
    Gaya Ethaniel: I saw that there was another quake before nearby.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Well not that near...

    I don't watch much TV but took some time after the session to watch some news about the event. I was surprised to learn that Italy has 2 fault lines and has had many earthquakes large and small all over the country...

    Qt Core: i live in a non sysmic area and i felt my first sysmic wave a couple month ago really unsettling
    Gaya Ethaniel: I had similar experience in UK... you got scared?
    Qt Core: no, it was nothing major, but it almost make me "angry" to the world... hey this is a non sysmic area, what are you doing here ?
    Gaya Ethaniel: mm... why angry?
    Qt Core: as it was out of the ordinary (in a bad way) some of the few sure things you can relax about
    Gaya Ethaniel: There are sure things?
    Gaya Ethaniel frowns... and thinks...
    Qt Core: we'd surely like to think that
    Gaya Ethaniel: Perhaps...
    Gaya Ethaniel: I can't think of sure things... but I will ponder over today.
    Qt Core: the big ones an the little ones, from knowing you will (should) not be hit by an earthquake to being used to go buy the newspaper to the stand just out of your usual coffee shop
    Qt Core: then one of those close...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Things can change though...
    Qt Core: sure, but sometimes more or less conscioulsy we/i start to think about some as immutable
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes it is easy/comfortable to think that way sometimes... I personally do like routines that is related to things being stable.
    Qt Core: in last years some thing changed that i don';t ever knew i toke as stable, and i was surprised by how much their change felt strange
    Gaya Ethaniel listens.
    Qt Core: the biggest suprise was when the archbishop of my area changed, he was there since i knew what an archbishop was and it was even one of the first time i thought... damn, i'm getting old... not only as a joke
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah... ok
    Gaya Ethaniel: You mean you forgot you were getting older?
    Qt Core: well, untill you hot 30/35 i don't think you ever think about that or you think about it as growing, not getting old
    Qt Core: hit
    Gaya Ethaniel: mm... an interesting perspective... maybe as a female, we tend to think about 'getting old'
    Qt Core: it could be, yes
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Gaya Ethaniel: I'm afraid I need to go back to RL Qt. Nice to meet you and talking to you.
    Qt Core: nice to meet you too
    Gaya Ethaniel: Good day to you.
    Qt Core: have fun ;-)
