    I bet meteorite hunters are having a field day.

    When I was in 7th grade one of our science homework assignments was to collect and identify rocks. I could not identify one of the rocks I found. It had the teacher baffled too until he noticed that it attracted magnets and then cut it in half with a grinder to see what it looked like inside. Turned out that it was an iron meteorite. AFAIK that rock I found is still at the school.

    I guess when the big one hits, California will still want to not be apart of America.

    A 6.5 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Loreto in Mexico amid fears of the Big One striking in the Gulf of California. The epicenter of the quake, which struck at about 10 am local time (4pm UK time), was 6.2 miles (10km) below the surface. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has not yet issued a tsunami warning for the West Coast of the US. The news comes amid heightened fears of California being rocked by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake or greater, known as the ‘Big One’.
    Strong 6.5 Quake strikes off coast of Loreto, Mexico, Fears of “Big One” striking Gulf of California.


    This one says they are worried about the fault line.

    It's been exceptionally quiet up here in Alaska. Nothing really worth mentioning has happened over the past couple weeks. We are having our typical gads of smaller quakes but not much in the >3.0 range - a bit unusual to my recollection since we typically have something in the 5.0 range every week, but I honestly don't pay enough attention to make any definitive theories. I've always had a general idea that big slips down south reflect up here, and big slips up here reflect elsewhere as well, but that's really all I've done on it; geology was never one of my major interests outside of "I like pretty rocks" heh

    Does this mean 3000000 illegals are fleeing back home?
