when is it predicted to happen so I can get the hell out of here?


That is the exciting thing about Mother Nature. No one really knows. At this point, it is simply a probability, It may happen during our lifetimes, and it may not. It'll keep us on our toes, though! :wink:

The worst thing about living here is it has turned into a test market for companies. It is dominated by chain restaurants, chain stores, chain everything.... everything is just so... average.


everywhere...even in the little bedroom communities there's no personal style or flavor in small towns anymore...just Super Wal Marts..... Crying or Very sad

Bi- What a horror. The worst part of this entire tragedy, is that we may all have to shop in Wal-Mart. Laughing

There was a reason we bought our co-op in Washington Heights. We live within 100 feet of the highest point on the island of Manhattan and we are on the top floor of our building, so I figure a nice pool side patio will make a nice addition to the fire escape.

Here is the best prediction that this is imminent....when it's announced that the White House is being moved to St. Louis you know the tsunami is right around the corner


The problem is, Bear, that this White House wouldn't be likely to announce anything, even if the entire Cabinet were heading up to a secret base on the Moon on a rocket out of Cape Kennedy. (Those extended "working" vacations at Crawford, TX are starting to look suspicious, though.)

Well if this is true, then this is the first I have heard of this, don't you think more people would know about it and be preparing for this event?? Also, if this is true, then when is it predicted to happen so I can get the hell out of here?
It's predicted to happen in the next 2,000 years, didn't you read the study (or what I wrote)? Nothing to fear until the Volcano wakes up. Then, you'll hear little else in the way of danger threats, I would think. In the mean time, just listen for the name "Cumbre Vieja". If you here that she's huffing and puffing, let that be your cue to take precautions. DON'T wait until they say she's collapsed if you know what's good for you!

Springtime in Manhattan...sitting on your rooftop patio...sipping a tropcal drink...watching as the bloated bodies of stockbrokers and transvestites float by....sounds like your own personal piece of heaven Joe.....

There is hope... a town near Milwaukee just successfully blocked Wal-mart from building a supercenter. They quickly had the city counsel pass a building size restriction for the area and low and behold the new Walmart was just to big to build.

Cuppla years ago in Peterborough, NH (the model for Our Town in the old play of the same name) the populace was successful in petitioning the Zoning Board to deny McDonald's a license to open a store there. Dunno why they were so adamant against it. The rest of the burgh ain't nothing to write home about.

Well don't get your bong back out just yet... You do know that the plate shifting that caused the Indian Ocean Tsunami was as unpredictable as it was unprecedented in those parts, don't you? Shocked

Yes, but this is something they are looking into, if I lived in where the recent tsunami just hit, I wouldn't be expecting it, therefore I would not have a rational amount of time to fear it and death, it would be in the present, not me looking at it as if it is the future

20 miles inland!?! Is this the entire east coast? I am about 1 – 2 miles from the ocean and less than that (in Boston) during work. But at work I am on the eighth floor think that is high enough?

The funny thing is I thought about this and if I had to get some where pretty fast, I know a very high hill (they actually have skiing on it), that is only a few miles from my house. I have scoped exactly how I would drive to the top. I thought I was paranoid, but after what you wrote, I guess not.

Prior to the tsunami, I have had nightmares of huge tidal waves while I was on a beach at a tropical resort. The nightmares were quite terrifying and not even close to pictures of the actual event.
