    Just wrap yourself in bubble pack and you'll be fine. It's the earth's way of giving you a farewell from California.

    Call it schadenfreude, but I am always amused by the travails of people who deliberately live in dangerous places. I wonder if these people are also an easy mark for Nigerian lottery winners, and salesmen peddling bridges and swamp land. Why shouldn't they be? After all, they live on an active fault line.

    Recoil is how you know primer ignition is complete.

    It could be worse, I guess. A volcano forming and erupting in San Francisco and/or Los Angeles would be pretty bad. Pompeii on a large scale.

    And it's not like California doesn't have some volcanoes that could get frisky sometime in the future.

    Well, let's be fair --- lots of people live where there can be tornadoes or hurricanes too. I wouldn't call Wichita "dangerous" -- unless of course you head down to the KitKatKlub on Hydraulic Avenue.

    For historic sake, Hydraulic Avenue use to be, and may still be, the raunchy zone of normally placid Wichita. All the chancy bars were there, kind of a redlight zone. When I went to school at KU (Lawrence KS), I dated a girl who got into grade trouble and dropped out, went to Wichita to find work, found instead a dancer job at the KitKat. I used to ride my bike there, Kansas Turnpike, to visit her. True.

    It's that frickenfracken.

    I didn't feel that one either.

    No I'm not drunk!

    It was just a 4.0. Funny!

    I'm betting more on lack of lubrication at the subduction zones. Maybe they should drill down to those areas and squirt a mega dose of K-Y jelly down in the area to make things more slicker and avoid the herky jerky stuff.

    K-Y jelly sounds like a great idea, squirt tons of it deep into the ground.

    Then later, pump some cigarette smoke down...

    Had a 4.7 in Talkeetna today....1 day after the 50 yr anniversary of the big one. Folks here are nervous.

    Youngest daughter just moved from SF to LA and felt that one the other night. Shook her doors and bookcases.

    No KY needed. Just more stimulation. Frack away!

    When I lived in Cupertino and SanFran, and we'd be at work when a temblor hit, we'd go "four point five" or "five point one" and the guy who guessed the closest without going over would win $5 from each bettor. Sort of like when we used to play "huckletybuck" while drinking lots of beer.
