Yeah, that's where I'm going. To the earthquake capital of the Caribbean, the Virgin Islands. When I first saw the map a year or two ago, I thought OMG! what a hunk of earthquakes! Then I realized the only seismometers in the whole place are on PR and the US Virgin Islands. Nowhere else. That's the trouble when the instruments aren't even. So I hope for no big earthquake. :)

Neato rat trap. I got the raticator from ammie. I get trainloads of tunnelling rats coming up from the dockland redevelopment. Poor displaced things. Anyway, if they are allowed to thrive and prosper they undermine everything around the back shed. So I am engaged in a war. But at the same time I got the trap, I also got some super rat food from the States. And they went away for a while. But I found that there are no batteries that drain fast enough at 10 below. So no rats killed in the trap. However, the physics is great. You short 2 plates and then it waits. When you lift the wire, it starts with 7000 volts. You can get a beautiful arc about 3 mm long. It does this for a minute 3 times since rats are good at restarting their hearts. It was so much fun! I'll try it outside when the weather warms up, or I'll use the transformer.

I'm not listening to this, but the general premise is that money spent on early warning is better than other things, or that this saves a lot of effort. It's sad.

Trumpyism may open up old injection wells. Neato.

Witchhunt. In the old company, I always found that this sort of thing got everybody to clam up, because they were afraid that a scapegoat would be found. As well, the guilty people had already taken measures to avoid the axe. These things usually come from design decisions.
