A truck just rolled up to the local LCBO. A web alert went out, and my son fought the crowds to get the bottle. Magnificent, rolls on the tongue like ambrosia. A hint of cloves and spice. Too bad you can't get it. :) ** ...

Brings to mind the first Apple 'big brother' ad.  :)

Marcellus shale gas production way up for some reason. Expect lots of OK earthquakes soon.

Nah, they send all the water to OK.

OK schools crumble. Huge block walls have almost no seismic capacity, and all schools are built this way.
The big earthquakes in Oklahoma are doing damage to many buildings, including a school in Crescent.

I agree, that school is toast.

I like how she is using my whimsical thought experiments, like riding down the fault. For these monster systems you need a 9+ to create a stress shadow for a few hundred years. Anybody up there should follow my rules for a safe house. :)
The fault that lies beneath the Himalayas is kinked, with a subterranean ramp that grows the mountains in between major earthquakes, new research finds.

As a followup to my geotechnical article. This is what they are doing on my imaginary site. I was totally wrong since I misunderstood the intent. The sewer people intend to restore the land and plant trees. The conservation people intend to destroy the land and leave a big scar that will settle unevenly.

Large bricks on silt will create sinkholes, to break your leg.

No more webisodes for a while, until the nightmare advances more. I finally figured out where this thing is coming from. We used to do this up north with the old company. The tailraces of dams had a horrible problem, since the water would go up and down several times a day. So for inaccessible banks we made a road along it for the whole length, and then backfilled coming back.

This is what they are doing here, and these guys are from the north, and probably worked for hydro, since they have jackets with 'erosion control' on them. Only this time they are working by themselves. I talked to the guy in charge (maybe) who was running the excavator. Looks like they have maybe two people. They are going put up a bridge to the other side and then do the road thing. I'll wait a few weeks.

I'll being doing a series of these on YouTube. I can jump around and yt fixes it like I have a steady cam. My brain refuses to accept this as reality. You are viewing images from a crazy brain. Be warned, do not view this ...

Nice opinion, but where's the money? Nobody is going to get stuck in this.
Today in Oklahoma, earthquake activity has become as reliable as the sunrise. The rate of increase of measurable tremors (greater than 2.5 magnitude) is almost exponential over the last three years.

Grapes of Math. Callie is copying OK, but who's on first?
A 2005 spate of quakes in California's Central Valley almost certainly was triggered by oilfield injection underground, a study published Thursday said, in the first such link in California between oil and gas operations and earthquakes.

A little physics please. Ships have been around forever, are they any worse these days? The orcas have been doing fine all this time. Are there other pressures?

Very friendly and family-like atmosphere. Beginners are well treated, and I should know. You'll go a long way to find joy, but here it is.

My son had it done, but I practically lived there. :) Now my daughter is having done. This is all absolutely first class, and it satisfies a crusty old engineer.

Great place but they soak you for WiFi. Go to McDonald's.

Friendly working class. They have a weird buzzer system for the restrooms that is hostile to tourists.
