"the geometry was the kicker"
(my geometry, kicks me in the face)
I add the Hawthorne story because it's right near many 'earthquakes'.
Here's another story on earthquake gold.
I don't think we understand water.
How can ice float?
Yes, on this thread we like to talk about the earth. The hard stuff. And how it rumbles and vibrates, and how it can bring the whole house down. Yes,
the recent larges earthquake in Japan, Bada Aceh and Chile, prove once again how powerful and dynamic the earth really is. The other day I provided
some scientist's claim they heard the sound of the Japanese quake out in space. Muzzy and Puterman can tell you how many equivalent nukes that would
be. I just know it's lots. I know I've written about this before, so, let's just say the idea must not be penentrating my skull enough, because every
time I look at the comparison, I'm blown away, not by the earthquake, but by the water.
I'm not discounted the lives lost during these, or any other earthquakes. But when you compare the earthquake to the tsunami, thre is no comparison.
I guess water being the catayst needed to make gold shouldn't surprise me. The same article talks about lubrication.
This is where my bean starts burning. We are lubricating the heck out of everthing. Maybe I exaggerate. We're not doing it everywhere. Just, almost
everwhere on land. Irrigation. Oil, and gas. Mining. Carbon dumping. Waste-water disposal. I'm certain I'm forgetting something. Volcano fracking. I
didn't make htis last one up in my imagination. It's real.
Drought and flood are part of a natural lubrication system. When dry, things tend to contract and crack. When wet, they swell and expand. Over time,
this process erodes away enough rock to then change stress loads. The balancing act it the earthquake which then provides some sort of equilibrium.
For a while at least. Our roads and bridges need constant repair and maintence because the shift from cold season to warm season can destroy concrete
Water is the universal element. Or at least the universal solvent. I didn't do well in chemstry class. duh
hydrogen is an element
oxygen is an element
comets are water
or is it that i'm just all wet?
