This is a loong day. Not only extended by 9 hours err.. 15 hours because of flying from SF to Oslo, but it started with loud rattling and shaking at 03:21, well over two hours before I intended to get up.

The SF Bay earthquake quickly woke me up. I had to pay attention to how things moved and for how long to judge how far away and how powerful this was, while being slightly concerned about how long it would last and whether it would intensify. The movements were fairly large, but gentle, so I assumed that the epicentre had to be some distance away, but not too far away either because it calmed down after 20 seconds or so. A Big One elsewhere in California surely would be a much more lengthy business.

I got online and checked usgs.gov who shortly reported an M6.0 some 40+ km north of me in Napa, the biggest in the SF Bay area in 25 years. Then I waited for the quake to reach my own seismometer in Oslo 8300 km away, and surely it did appear loud and clear, particularily strong 30-60 minutes after it settled in SF. It was a pretty odd thing to do: I was using instruments 8300 km away to measure something that happened just where I were.

This was not the only geological incident that interfered. During the 24h before I went to catch my flight home there was not only a big earthquake, but the airspace around Iceland, which lies in the flight path, was shut down due to an assumed eruption. It seems now that the warning was a bit premature, but the risk of something big blowing up in Iceland at any time is still quite present. We flew over Ireland instead and got an hour late or so.

This is what my seismometer recorder:

It sounded like a good prospect (though wildly "in your dreams") until the "cold beer that was made in America" part.

Just realized I broke the rules with that picture, guess I should've read it instead of skimmed over it. Lets pretend its root beer and end it at that. Also robots replace jobs, so you wouldn't really having a booming economy in the classical sense.

Rand Paul image


Is not Rand Paul the man who plagiarized from the Wikipedia article for a sci-fi movie in the speech he made in support of some Republican candidate? A quick search reveals he has plagiarized many other times, including in his response to the State of the Union address and in a series of weekly op-ed articles in The Washington Times.

Yes, this is the man who will lead our country to greatness. tongue
