So is Rainier about to spew Santorum?

Really? "The MRI are"?

Remove the prepositional phrase and recompute:

Maybe they are writing in British English and consider MRI to be a plural, like how they say companies are plurals (groups of people, which is the historical meaning of "company") whereas in American English, companies are singular entities.

Data is, technically, plural too, and MRI scans are collections of data.

(sorry, I have probably spent too much time doing ass-pull explanations for bad fiction writing.  It's probably a writer error)

I like my subterranean magma chambers like my women: molten, vast and only visualized with magnetotelluric instrumentation.

Regarding "data": there's no "technically" about it.

Datum is singular.
Data are plural.

'MRI' of Rainier's intestines finds massive magma reserve


better than a massive smegma reserve.  imagine that erupting

'MRI' of Rainier's intestines finds massive magma reserve

Oh boy, interesting science!  Let's introduce it with ridiculous terms that have absolutely nothing to do with the article.  Surely our readers are too ignorant to understand words like seismic and magma, but they'll have no trouble with MRI and intestines.

And of course nothing suggests the magma reserve is particularly special or significant as far as volcanoes go, but let's throw 'massive' in there to make it sound threatening.

/Mainstream coverage of science is like having your mom tell people about what you do while you're standing right there

Rainier is srs business.  If that puppy blows, it'll make St. Helens look like an afternoon at the park.  There will be a real shiz-storm when that one goes off.

As someone who lives a mere 40 miles from it, I wonder if I picked a bad time to move to Washington.

Dunno, are you still sniffing glue?

We're not too far away, and definately in the path of the lahar, near a river. Homeowner's doesn't cover this issue.

Maybe you just moved to the wrong place in Washington. The central south part is quite safe.

I'm surprised that it doesn't.  I'd figure that they'd figure that people would be too dead to file claims.

Oh, that are surrounding Trojan where a high number of babies are being born with 'anomalies'?

I think I read an article a while back that said something about Rainier slowly building up to an eruption.

So really, while everyone's been freaking out about Yellowstone possibly erupting sometime between tomorrow and 500,000 years from now, Rainier has been getting ready to blow its top and fark the hell out of Seattle.

Sneaky volcano is sneaky.

That is water related damages so requires the separate flood type insurance.  Based on a cursory search it appears that flood insurance would cover a lahar under a policy but you would need to check for sure to see if basic flood insurance covers that or if a separate policy is necessary specifically covering mud flows and lahars.  If your close enough maybe the pyroclastic flow would blow the house away and that may be considered wind type damage that may be covered by your basic homeowners policy.  You may be dead in a horrible matter, but you could be compensated so look on the bright side.

VOLCANO INSURANCE! GET YOUR HOT STEAMY VOLCANO INSURANCE HERE! IT COVERS LAHARS! IT COVERS PYROCLASTIC FLOWS! IT COVERS FLAMING DEATH BY LAVA! STEP RIGHT UP! I GOT VOLCANO INSURANCE HERE! AND FOR AN EXTRA HUNDRED THOUSAND A YEAR I'LL UPGRADE IT TO SUPERVOLCANO INSURANCE!!

Ummmm.. Trojan is in Oregon, but their babies still have a higher rate of anomalies than south central Washington.

It's on the Columbia River, closer to Wa.
Most of the birth defects are near there or the area in WA. where to containment is buried.

Get on google maps and look at the satellite image around Rainier and Tacoma. You'll see how past eruptions have shaped the landscape.

Looks like I better work in a hike up there again soon.

Commencement Bay in downtown Tacoma was scoured out by a lahar from Rainier, back in his teen years.

We're in Tacoma for the first year or so; after that, who knows.

Beautiful.  Definitely on my bucket list.  Hubby and I were thinking of next year, but now we're leaning towards going to Banff, Waterton, and Glacier.
