    A friend sent me these videos about a cruise ship near the Japanese tsunami.

    I looked at the outside view here first. My reaction was, "So what.  Thats what boats do at sea."

    Then I looked at the inside view here.  Horror.  I thought, "Oh no, loose furniture.  Suicidal."

    The exterior shot was probably taken during a storm, not a tsunami; the interior one would be the same guess.

    Yeah both of those videos have been around for a while... before the Japan Tsunami.

    The Tsunami would probably be undetectable if out deeper than 100 fathoms or so.... just a very "wide" swell that may not be much higher than other waves at the time.
