Subby wins tar internets!

At subby's mom's house. Of course, the earth moves with every step she takes, so...

Sounds scary, but USGS says its regional fault activity, not volcanism

Natalie Portmanteau: Sounds scary, but USGS says its regional fault activity, not volcanism


Have they adjusted the meters to account for 2020/2021?  In January of 2020, corona was just a gleam in the eye of politicians here in the US salivating for ultimate power and the ability to go to the french laundry without underchuds on the road.

Anyone see the back end of a spaceship sticking out of a mountain?

Subby borrow your Mom's plunger ... when she's done playing with it.

Masterbating furiously, until subby's mom walks in....

There was also an earthquake in subby's bedroom?

To have been located within such a small area, it would've been pretty week. Anybody there wouldn't have felt much of anything at all.

Technically speaking, a neighbor was doing some kind of construction project that involved a back hoe or something that shook the whole house.  It was kinda annoying and went on all day.

FTFA: "Oregon's highest peak was shaken by at least 100 small earthquakes, the strongest a magnitude 2.7"

Oh no, everybody panic!

Though with my luck, when Cascadia finally does sh*t itself I'll be at work and the mess will be my problem to deal with. That's going to be a lot of paperwork, assuming there's anything functional left to do paperwork on. XD

Regional fault activity sounds pretty scary to me.   Looks nervously towards the subduction zone right off shore.

You're not going to feel a 2.7 (the biggest of this swarm) unless it's shallow and right under your house.

I'm in Cal and we had a swarm of ten quakes Saturday night. Biggest was 4.2. I first guessed 4.5, then revised my guess down to 4.2. It was a decent jolt, but didn't last long. It was initially reported as a 4.5, then corrected to a 4.2. Nailed it.

That's good to hear.  The people there should live long and prosper then.

Stand downhill from several million cubic meters of snow on a (relatively) warm weekend and say that.

Eh, I'm on the west side of the river. I'm more worried about the total sh*t-show I-5 is gonna be. Y'know, more so than usual. :D

You really want to say your mom drives the train?

Meh, 2.7

Sure!  She takes it down to Tijuana every weekend for the donkey show.  She says she loves donkeys.  I mean, they're great animals, am I right?

 QUITE a number of years ago, quirky CHEK-TV on Vancouver Island closed out a news show with a "man-on-the-street" series of interviews about a similar geological event. A few first-person recitations of broken windows and dishes, spilled What-Not Shelves and the like.
The final interview with the most stunning, beautiful model-esq young lady you can imagine, dressed to the nines. A grade "A" knockout with a Sharon Stone sexy sultry voice:  "You're asking if the Earth moved for me this morning?"
"No.  I had a headache."  She quickly turned and walked away, without any further comment by the newsman. The camera just followed her and followed her. No end-of-show credits, no hurry, no ad.  Just watch the stunning beauty walk away.
Best live newscast ever.
