brimed03: So this is what it has come to.

In some Farkers' desperation for greenlights, we're now camping the USGS website and submitting context-free earthquake data. No information about affected people or structures, tidal waves, anything relevant. And Subby gets rewarded again when subsequent (actual) articles have to use the Followup tag.

Never has "It's not news" been such an appropriate motto.


Show me on this doll where the USGS touched you.

whither_apophis: make me some tea: Papua New Guinea is in the region where the Indo-Australian Plate collides with the Western Pacific Plate, and essentially in an intersection of the Indo-Australian, Phillippine, and Eurasian Plates. It's ocean crust that's been forced up to 16,000ft above sea level from tectonic forces.

Eventually all of that area will be dry land.

Dry land is a myth.


Dry land denier!

zimbomba63: Ivo Shandor: zimbomba63: It might be me, but things seem to be heating up in Earthquakeville recently.

I get notification emails from the USGS for 7.0+ quakes. This is the 7th this month, and the 2nd from this location.

I use the RSOE-EDIS website.  It has everything, hailstorms, major vehicular accidents, volcanoes, objects approaching  near Earth, you name it.


I love that site. It's perfect if you want to have a panic attack.

northguineahills: FunkOut: Papua New Guinea is a pretty fascinating place. Do a GIS for  Papua New Guinea hornbill. Those are some bizarro birds.

And most of the birds of paradise can be found there as well.


And crazy giant pigeons.

themindiswatching: Australian tourists might care, subby.


Yeah, and  subby also specified "English-speaking."  What's your point?

Hollie Maea: Panguna...interesting place. In the 70s they found copper, and opened up the largest copper mine in the world.  Francis Ona was displeased that they were trashing the island and siphoning all of the proceeds out of the country, he formed a landowner's association to try to rectify things.  That didn't work, of course, so he found an old WW2 sword in the jungle and said "fark you all".  They sent in the police, but that didn't work.  So they sent in the army, but that didn't work either. So then the prime minister hired international mercenaries.  But he got in Big Trouble for that stunt.  At some point, with the mine shuttered and Francis controlling the entire island, he proclaimed victory and set himself up as king.

He immediately died of Malaria, of course.


That read like a Terry Pratchet intro.

Be sure to include "hornbill"... otherwise... it's just page after page of sagging boobs.

Straight Outta Wells Branch: zimbomba63: It might be me, but things seem to be heating up in Earthquakeville recently.

It's all God's way of warning us about the evils of Obamacare. If only we can repeal it, then the earthquakes in far off lands that America has never heard of before will stop.


Are you sure?  I thought it was because we were letting homos get married.  At least, that's what the preacher man says.
