Tsunami power of nature and tragic falure outmoded system
16 Jan 2005
Near daybreak on December 26, the earth shuddered on the eastern coast of the Indian Ocean. The collision of two massive plates of the earth had built up tremendous pressures, and the faultline finally gave way along a 750-mile boundary, The floor of the ocean suddenly lurched 60 feet underneath the land mass of Southeast Asia’s Burma plate—moving forward more in a few violent moments than it had in the last three hundred years. The whole volcanic Indonesian island of Sumatra moved a hundred feet south.

This was one of the most powerful earthquakes recorded by human beings—and was followed by at least a dozen secondary earthquakes, several of them massive in their own right. The energy released suddenly by this violent slide was the equivalent of 32 billion tons of TNT. The quake unleashed 30% more energy than the whole U.S. consumes in a year, or (to use a quirky illustration) enough energy to boil 2,600 gallons of water for every person on earth. A massive hurricane would have to rage for two full months to release as much energy as this earthquake unleashed in seconds.

#409 - A Bully with a Badge
15 Jan 2005
Either the officer does not know the law - and therefore should not be on the streets in "law enforcement" or, as I actually suspect, was knowingly fabricating laws to harrass us for asking for his badge number and should not be on the streets as a "bully with a badge".
