Thursday News

The helicorders are pretty active today so let’s wait for quittin’ time to see what’s what.

Hope this doesn’t happen over south Louisiana – Loud booms and rumblings after meteor explosion over West Virginia and meteorite touchdown in Tennessee
and, from Strange Sounds too – Fracking and Drinking Water Map


3.1 quake in Malden, Missouri

Here is some art to go along with the new Godzilla movie opening-

  1. Totally OT ( off-topic ), but am I the only one here, who suspects that the proposed Guatemala and Honduras Atlantic / Pacific canal, and even the current Panama canal may soon become pointless, if not non-existent.

    The isthmus that connects the north and south American landmasses was once sea bed, and with the increasing tectonic activity, I suspect it may soon be again.

    And as I said OT, but maybe not totally, because any submergence or breakup of that isthmus, is going to seriously and very adversely affect any land that adjoins the Caribbean sea, and the Gulf of Mexico, possibly even Europe and Africa, not to mention the Pacific seaboard’s.

  2. My Mother blood type was A + and my Father blood was B + I came out with AB – blood.
    As I said before I grow up in Oak Ridge TN (The Secret City).
    There was times when I was growing up in Oak Ridge they told us not to eat the food from our gardens for a week or two.

    The Museums in Washington DC
    About birth defects from a single cell Exhibit.
    Birth defects from disease or radiation or ionizing radiation or bad genes.
    One of the Washington DC National Museums: I think they move it to Maryland the National Museum of Health and Medicine.
    For decades the museum was northwest of Washington DC, deep in government property, hidden behind the Walter Reed Army Medical Center — the way one might hide a hideously deformed relative. In 2011 it moved to a new facility in Silver Spring, MD. It’s a national treasure where each plastinated organ, skeleton and bone fragment has a tale to tell.

  3. Some of you may wonder why I’m posting this one, BUT…

    M4.1 – 2km ENE of Weiterstadt, Germany
    2014-05-17 16:46:25 UTC

    68.9 miles to the North-west there is a monastery by the name of Maria Laach, but the monastery isn’t the important bit…

    The monastery stands on the shores of a lake called Laacher See. But that lake isn’t the important bit either…

    The lake rests in a somewhat wooded crater-like depression within a ring of hills, also called Laacher See.

    Now that depression, IS the important bit, because when it’s not doing it’s mild-mannered bespectacled ‘Clark Kent’ impression, it’s actually…


    Yes Germany AND France do have volcanoes, and this little volcano, ‘Yellowstone’s mini-me’, is actively bubbling away beneath that lake, and 68.9 miles away from an EQ is way to ‘jelly-shaking’ close for my taste.

    America and the rest of the American provinces ( aka the world ) worry about Yellowstone, I worry about Laacher See.

    Laacher See is more than capable of putting out enough dust and c**p to shut down the worlds airlines for years. Mount Toba it isn’t, but it would still give Europe a good ass-kicking.

  4. Laacher See volcano is part of the East Eifel volcanic field.
    If that volcanic goes up there be a lot of dust and sulfate dust going into the air.

    1816 – The Year Without Summer
    Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death

    Cool temperatures and heavy rains resulted in failed harvests in Britain and Ireland. Families in Wales travelled long distances as refugees, begging for food. Famine was prevalent in north and southwest Ireland, following the failure of wheat, oats, and potato harvests. In Germany, the crisis was severe; food prices rose sharply. With the cause of the problems unknown, people demonstrated in front of grain markets and bakeries, and later riots, arson, and looting took place in many European cities. It was the worst famine of 19th-century Europe.

    North America
    In the spring and summer of 1816, a persistent “dry fog” was observed in parts of the eastern U. S. The fog reddened and dimmed the sunlight, such that sunspots were visible to the naked eye. Neither wind nor rainfall dispersed the “fog”. It has been characterized as a as a stratospheric sulfate aerosol veil.
    I think New Orleans, Louisiana had a Cold Summer that year.

    • I thought it was that year that created the “Little Egypt” moniker for the Miss. delta. All the people had to go way down there to get seeds etc. because they lost their crops that year. Towns like Cairo, Ill. all around the south-mid-west.

  5. I’m beginning to wonder if there’s actually a country on this planet that doesn’t have a super volcano…

    Italy has one, we call it Naples.
    Germany has Laacher See.
    China has one, and America has five ( show-offs ).

    Even the United Kingdom has TWO!!!

    Yes… TWO super volcano’s in the British Isles…

    The Great Glen in Scotland and Scafell in the Lake District, England.

    Now the article would have us believe that the ones in the UK are extinct, and it’s probably true…

    However volcano’s are nasty little buggers that hate playing by the rules, and have been known to resurrect themselves, so to my mind the only dead volcano, is one that has been melted down by the mantle after being ‘subducted’ below the surface.

    And don’t forget, scientists recently discovered another volcano on the pacific sea bed, the only one that makes current super volcano’s look like pimples.
