"Okay Huston, we've had a problem here."
I cannot sleep. I've been trying to wake earlier, but today's unrest was more than just that. As I lay in my bed and imagined things that shouldn't be
thought, one of them is becoming a pattern. I have seen the Great Lake Erie Tsunami. I have written about it here- haven't I? Glacial rebound on my
mind this morning. Can't forget the moon. I have been watching Popo.
The first thing I did when I turned on the computer was check Arkansas. Woah. I didn't waste any time and checked the big board. Nothing big. Huh.
Better look again. Oh, it's more locals me thinks. Yup, much. Texas. Frack
My nightmares will become yours. Trust me. As I sat listening to the sillier thoughts in my head this morning, one of the band members wanted to write
a song about Yellowstone. About how they're going to frack right up the the park's borders. They'll stick in that long straw so as to suck out the
juices as down and away as they can get at it. Maybe on a little horizontal, creeping beneath. Sorry. If I wasn't such a quiter, and if I actually
could ever finished anything, the song would have been very folksy.
There is one part of maddness I enjoy. Trust me, most of it is hell, but, when you get the cosmic joke, and the whole wold becomes painful absurd and
insane, the only thing you can do is laugh. Laugh manically at the stupidity. You have to laugh now. You have to laugh hard. and don't let
embarassment or reason stop you. It's all fracked up. You have to laugh now, now before the tradedy. It's all fracked up. Sorry, that's wrong. Tradegy
already being written and we've long since had the opening act. It's all fracked up.
Situation Normal All FraCKed UP
I'm still snickering and have tears in my eyes. I hate you all. I hate you because I love you so very much. I am laughing and calling you names
because the human race is no better than a bunch baboons with machine guns. It's all one big circular firing squad. Homer Simpson and Borat our high
minds of wisdom.
Did you know they have oilfields in east Springfield? But if the real Springfield is in Oregon, how's that ...? forget it.
When I was laying in bed, I was looking at the map of quakes in the U.S. It's that pathetic. In my mind's eye, I've got that USGS map always running
and this last bunch of activity was trying to tell me something. Oh, duh, ya right. Clusters. I'm sick of me too. This last cluster started in
Arkansas. It did some kinda arc thingy and spread beyond.
Before I forget. On NPR all week they are doing reports on fracking. I'll try to put up a link.
On May 20th Popo will explode violently.
Asia shut off. Cascadia has relaxed somewhat. Exluding Washington's swarm. Overall the world is on the low side of normal but not ghostly quiet or
anything like that. I'm sure Puterman's graphs will show it's mildly steadish.(edit, he posted while I blathered and wrote it down) I know I started
this thought with a prediction, but I am really focused more on zones and whether or not they seem switched on or off. Although I am keeping things
differentiated. The Central US is unique due to man's idiocy.
Wait. I have something for Muzzy about NZ. and it almost got lost.
The other day I was complaining about that anchorwoman who equated the last Texas quake to the disaster of the space shuttle. She'll be comparing this
morning's earthquakes to... I didn't even want to finish the sentence so as not to be demeaning to those that have suffered during the immense
tragedies that have occured too frequently in the last few years.
It's just when they use should over-loaded terms, it sucks the life out of the really big stuff. Why didn't the people of Joplin immediately seek
In the end, that Texas anchorwoman may indeed report on a local disaster. Just not yet.
So.... The east end of Erie is bouncing up, and the. No, wait. Sorry. The West end of Erie is still rebounding and the east End, the one with all the
salt mines, is...
"Okay Houston, we've had a problem here."
Had to edit. You must watch this local news report again. It is amazing. And I'm not abusing the word amazing. Awesome. There again. I think it fits.
This news report is so bad for so many reasons. I'll comment on one thing which happens within the first ten seconds of the report. They used the lady
as a booster for their station. The first ten seconds could have been a promotional spot for the television station.
stay tuned for further remarkable reports from Texas....
Another edit. I had to shower. Afterward I checked out the homepage of the TV station. I was transfixed by Billy the Bug Guy. Americans. Love you. I
saw nothing on their page about most recent earthquake. But I did notice the red scroll. Flood warnings for the region. Hmmm. Long, long severe
drought followed by rain. Along with drilling on a massive scale- using water- both pumping it up, and pumping it down. Connection me thinks.
Here's the NPR report on Fracking.
Great series. Except I'd give them an A-
I don't think they've been current enough to add Dimmock and the EPA. I have to be balanced. The EPA didn't finding fracking chemicals in the water.
And I think they don't mention the earthquakes in the NPR series. Although I could be wrong.
