Beached As

Feet up New Zealand a sleepy dormant fault line has just woken up after a long sleep and it might just be grumpy. According to geologists the Hikurangi subduction zone has begun to move. This little fault has the ability to cause 9.0 earthquakes and the mother of all tsunamis. Sleep with one eye open bros.

Surf’s Up

If dodging aliens hiding in suspicious Japanese clouds isn’t enough, scientists now believe Australia has a massive super ocean sink hole which could cause catastrophic earthquakes and tsunamis. Goddammit does that mean I have to hang my washing up higher? The so called “tear” in the sea bed is 7 km deep and just north of Australia. Scientists are now calling it the biggest fault on the planet. …nice one.

Yep, same thing happened in Japan shortly before that big shaker caused the uber tsunami that sent the Fukushima nuclear plant into meltdown … just saying. Sleep with one eye open.

Jailhouse Rock

It’s a bitch being a scientist in Italy. An Italian court has sentenced 6 of them (plus a government official) to 6 years jail for failing to predict the L’Aquila earthquake of 2009 which killed 300 people. The group were all members of the National Commission for the Forecast and Prevention of Major Risks whose job it was to keep an eye on earthquake dangers and keep the city informed. Sheez, who knew those low level tremors would lead to a  6.3 shaker. Anywho, on the bright side I hear there are 7 new positions vacant.

Want sauce with that?
