I figure the world was already overpopulated with lawyers, commies, politicians, idiots, and those that refuse to accept reality as it is when I was born in 1946.  It damn sure hasn't gotten any better with time.  Wake me up when it's time to shoot them, otherwise I'll continue to ignore them and refuse to engage in their folly....or crimes.

Bob is like a crossbow with a set trigger.  He gets all wound up and tight over a month or two and then the simplest of statements ..... THWANNNg!!!!

I'm just trying to relieve some pressure.

A lack of proper and permanent engine mounts reflects on the mobility of the person that owns it.  Bob ain't lit fer good yet.

I'm just waiting for Jens' setup to trigger "the big one" here on the Wet coast.

I think their whole theory is based on your "thumper".  The whole point of these many little 14 month periodic limit and slip events is that one of them is going to trigger a 9.0 or bigger 700 year event.  Hope you've got thumper bolted down tightly!

Stan--
Interesting how the same data means different things to different people.  The article mentioned 'triggering a big quake'.

The periodic slip, would seem to me to be a signal that the faults are not locked and therefore the energy for a 9.0 is being bled off non-destructively.  It's when they go silent for a hundred or so years that you get the great slip-thrust quakes like Anchorage 1964.  I think the concern is that slip in one place equals stress in another, but how do you discern a 'quiet fault' from a 'bound fault' from no fault at all?

The FACT is, humans haven't been here long enough to have sufficient information to know even partially for sure how all this works.  The ones that sound most sure of themselves get the grant money.

I wonder how much horsepower the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate has to have to move an inch a year?

I think you would be better off having them melt down the subs & have them make new listers & send them over, at least that way you get something of value!! ;D

If someone is melting subs, steel cast redstone would be really nice with steel flywheels (same weight not less.  But thinner cast for the body and strong, less heavier.  :)

Peace!  Sometimes I come out sounding strange sometimes.

I was just being witty but steel is rather nice metal to work with if it cracked or breaks, weld it back together.  Cast iron is diffcult to do.
