When the Gilbert Inlet suffered an earthquake in 1958, a 30 million cubic meter area of rock slipped into the Lituya Bay. The resulting tsunami was
1720 feet tall. The Hilina Slump is 5,000 cubic MILES of land.
Good Gosh!! That was the mother of all tsunamis, No?
There is 12 hours difference in time between here and the USA so I saw the Wrabbits response last night and logged off. Slept right through a big rain
shower and it was darn cool this morning.
For those who took the time to post in this thread I thank you... I went back and tried to star everyone if that means something? I do hope that for
some it was a bit of knowledge you did not have before... It was for me when I came across the article
All of this stuff kinda reminds me of some preachers I knew when growing up that claimed the second coming was at hand or the rapture was upon
mankind... They are all dead now and lived their life in fear or longing depending on their mindset.. Basically a waste of thought energy IMO but it
certainly was a conversational topic for them....
The earthquakes, super volcanos, tsunamis, and all around unfavorable earth changes for mankind are part and parcel of life on this planet. The
tsunami that hit Phuket Thailand was just another day in paradise until it wasn't... Many people died and businesses were destroyed; they were better
off (body count wise) than many were; where the wave hit... but the rebuild has erased almost all the scars and life goes on.
In my great patriotic war we had a saying that was something like, "When the great ticket puncher punches your ticket the ride is over".... Might be
more truth in that than is apparent at first glance..
I just don't want to push him/her into a punch job because I was upside down close to the ground while doing ??? knots and get hit between the eyes
with a big fat June Bug going in the opposite direction.. Lame I know but some will get the picture and smile?
