    actually, with tectonic plates all locked together, it makes sense that if there is a big mov in one point it will affect other points and then other points etc like falling dominos. So we have had haiti, japan, chile now taiwan...pacific rim or close to it. something gonna give in southern euope in response?

    Damn, I hope that big fault line running just west of Denver doesn't ever slip big.

    I remember going climbing through that fault line once. It runs through a canyon and if you know the right spot, you can climb inside of the fault.

    Now whose fault is that?

    how you doin' on your bucket list?

    anyone remember a movie from from maybe 40+ years ago. there was an earthquake and the earth eventually split into 2 pieces and at the end of the movie there was a couple that were either separated by the split or wound up together - I forget exactly. I think as the earth was splitting the scientists tried to blow a hole in the earth's crust to stop the crack

    someone in p&r claimed that there was a conspiracy to hide the truth that the earth is actually growing. what a plonker.

    gotta love unscience fiction movies.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    actually it is made of silicon. bikes is only its second specialisation. computers and semiconductors is its main focus.

    i just had a thought. does this mean iphones are going to get more expensive?

    Looks like earth got into rodeo mode and decided to shake us all to hell! Though that makes me wonder how it feels when you're on your bike and suddenly you get strucked by an 8 and Up earthquake...

    That one was roughly 60 miles from my house. My wife felt it (she was in bed, propped up against the wall). We all thought she was crazy until the news feeds started coming in.

    With tornado season coming up, gotta decide to be either sucked up to the heavens or sucked down to hell...
