If you add up all the energy from the smaller and smaller quakes, does the sum converge to a finite limit? Show your work. No calculators.

It's turtles all the way down.

But all of those Quakes were preceded by DOOM.

Gah, smitty, you almost had me til you blew the meter at the end!

That sounds hard.  I think you'd need a pair o' doc's to get the answer.

Timely article subby.

Can't some snakes take care of that?

There are elephants first.

No need to get all gnashy.

This is what the people at HAARP want you to think....

Don't be so Swift, buddy.

but who started the first quake? therefore evolution is wrong

When I feel the earthquake, I'm gettin' the hell OFF this sand dune. I'm 9 blocks from the ocean, if'n the quake doesn't sink the peninsula, I got about 15 min to get up the hill, 15 miles away by road.

The meter works for me. try singin' it to "house of the rising sun"

/This is America, it's in yards. No wonder you're not feelin' it.

So ultimately, we'll reach the tipping point of earthquakes where the world will constantly vibrate and shake itself apart.  I propose to avert this disaster that we kill the giant snakes and carp that live beneath our tectonic plates.

Yes.  The Earth has insufficient mass to overcome electron degeneracy pressure, therefore there exists a lower bound on its potential energy.

Apparently I was the only one to notice that this article was dated 2008.
