We have bears here at Lake Tahoe, and sometimes they come into town to find a nice dumpster (or whatever) to raid. Last evening there was a loud crash out in our garden, and I came out to find a large bear had torn down my gate and ripped up some fencing like it was cardboard. One swipe with the paw is all it takes. They are powerful animals, sometimes I wonder why they bother being scared of us. Without a weapon we are nothing more than two-legged Happy Meals.

The San Andreas fault, running through half of my state, is seen as the source of the "Big One" in popular culture. But we have a much more destructive earthquake zone running through the Northwest. On average, it breaks every 243 years. It's been 315 years since the last.

When it goes again, there will be too many disaster stories to cover on the news.

Wow, didn't see that coming. I wonder if the launch escape system would have functioned correctly if it had been installed in this Dragon capsule.
 
SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket Explodes During CRS-7 Launch
June 28, 2015: "During today's launch attempt of a Falcon 9, the rocket was seen to disintegrate during first stage flight, it is not known what caused this yet. The launch was to send the Dragon CRS-7 spacecraft into orbit full of cargo for the International Space Station, vital since the loss of a Russian Soyuz Progress vehicle and the stand down of the Orbital Antares rocket due to its recent malfunction."
