make me some tea: Ok I admit it. I lol'ed. Really we should be happy to have someone like Obama as President. With as much power as he has to change things far away and beyond the realm of the possible- he will either save the planet or destroy it. Either way we dont need to worry about it any more.

Aren't the two terms kind of interchangeable? a shock wave basically is a very strong sound wave, no?

Been a looooong time since highschool physics though...there a scientist in the house?

non compos mentat: I would love to check this out. I got a chance to go to Mt. St. Helens in 1982 and take a helicopter ride around the inside of the crater.

Two friends of mine and their parents lived very near the crater base and abandoned their house as the eruptions grew. They had a couple of volcanologists actually visit their house, interview them about any tremors in their area, ask for copies of any pictures, etc., etc. Then, they were told to stay at their own peril and that they believed that they would die soon enough if they ignored evacuation plans that would soon go into effect. They got the fark out.

I met them the first time when, for some reason, they bought a house and settled down in Smallville Texas about half a mile from my house. They had lots of pics of early events at the crater. Even got a quart jar of freshly picked Mt. St. Helens ash out of the deal. To my knowledge, neither one of them have ever been back to Washington.
