Still no cure.

Better not try that in CA, we'll fall right off the continent.

Why use all those explosives ...? They could just set up near a fairly large chili cookoff ...

Didn't Lex Luthor try that already?
2002-10-27 11:30:45 AM  
Dr. Evil did.

Liquid hot MAG-MA.

Does anybody besides me think this is a very BAD idea?

"To minimize interfering ground motion caused by vehicular traffic, people and livestock moving around, vibration from pumps and the like, the experiment will be conducted between 10 a.m. and 3 a.m."

good thinking. shoot for 5 p.m. or so

Yeah, man that idea is so 1978.

Sure Lex Luthor tried it -- though blue boy stopped him.

And it seems that George W. Bush just might try it in Iraq. I hear those daisy cutters can really shake the ground!

I can't wait until they try to make their own volcano.

Yellowstone has a hundred+ cubic MILE bubble of magma about a dozen miles down, all they'd need to do is drill down to it and they could give most of the western half of the US a damn nice show.

"Scientists plan to measure the effects of the blast on the unstable seismic region and speculate whether it will disarm a potentially larger earthquake that would otherwise occur. The New Madrid Fault, often referred to as the George Bush of fault lines (for it's low level of regular activity and high potential for catastrophe), offers little from historical analysis to suggest what the possible outcome will be.

'Yeah, we're not sure,' says scientist Bob Fark, "but there's a stong chance that everything west of St. Louis will fall into the ocean.'"
