Sir Scarz I hope that lady will be ok. Poor thing.

I admit that I don't like elevators much. Embarassed I don't like escalators much either, but for a different reason. When I was little I saw that another little girl got her foot cut off in the teeth. I think her shoe got caught in them and it sucked her foot down. I never could get that picture out of my head. I always jump over the teeth if I am forced to get on one. I probably look like an idiot, but I'd rather be safe. XD

No, I didn't know that, but I would worry about Nevada anyway since it is so close to California, especially if "The Big One" ever hits.

I snickers a bit when I watched the movie San Andreas, but I seriously hope nothing like that ever happens.

*chuckles* yes Lady Riley, San Andreas should not be the standard, I believe it showed Hoover Dam collapsing and Vegas drowning under the water. . .(the Dam is south of us and that could never happen, except in Hollywood).

Lady Rayven, I have seen some pretty horrific things happen on escalators, though I have seen some funny ones, too. . .we had a bride get her wedding dress get caught, but she refused to allow them to cut the dress free. . .the repairman said that the only way they could save the bottom section of the dress was if she took it off. . .she didn't even hesitate to get out of the dress and stood there in her underwear until he was able to get the dress out. . .she then put it on and walked away as if nothing happened.

Riley-I hope not too, but I suppose anything is possible. Missouri has a pretty major fault line too, the New Madrid. I don't live super close, but close enough it could cause us problems if the earthquake was big enough. The New Madrid doesn't seem to be as active as the San Andreas though. I probably just jinxed myself. thunk








Sir Scarz-That is good to know about the Dam. I admit I did not know that.

Wow! XD Poor lady. It sounds like she took it well though. I would have just cut my dress since I'd never wear it again anyway.

I think a lot of people outside of Missouri have no idea how dangerous the New Madrid fault could be.

Yes, the bride had a pretty good attitude about it and I found it hard to believe that keeping the dress and not cutting it was so important to her. It also adds to the legend of being able to almost being able to see everything in Vegas froa semi naked bride waiting for her dress to some drunk knocking out Batman. I remember the first thing that I saw that told me "I wasn't in Kansas any more" when I walked into one casino and saw a bride in her wedding gown playing on a "Big Six" spin the wheel game, that was spun by "Elvis"

I know how dangerous it is. There are two fault lines. The other one is under the New Madrid fault line. Dorminat volcanoes um ear Cabool and Arkansas Line.

Sir Scarz-Yeah. To be honest, I even forget about the New Madrid most of the time. Plus I don't believe they've made any movies about that one. XD

Wow. It sure sounds like you've seen it all Sir Scarz. I wouldn't mind visiting sometime just so I could people watch. I don't think I'd be disappointed. XD








Water Dragon-I didn't know about the dormant volcanoes. Shocked I'm glad I don't live down there. I used to have family down that way, but they've all passed away.

Lady Rayven, that line about "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas", is pretty true, though I heard a comedian say it wasn't because in her case "what happened in Vegas, turned 5 years old this month."


Water Dragon, I didn't know about the dormant volcanoes, as everyone only seem to talk about the super volcano in Yellowstone. . .seems like if Mother Nature wanted to, she has so many options to cause major problems anywhere in the world.

Must be because Missouri is stable even though we do experience an occasional earthquake of a 1 or 2. Arkansas has the hot springs near there and the mining of Obsidien,shert rocks,flint,and the natives had Obsidien spearheads&arrowheads.

I was talking to my Dad about this last night, and he said that if we ever have a really big earthquake St. Louis would actually take more damage than we would. Their ground is softer than ours. We're pretty much on a solid sheet of rock here. I believe it after digging holes in our yard lately. XD Sooo many rocks and a lot of clay. Not good for plants though. We even have a boulder in the backyard, and one that is buried in the front yard, but you can see the top of it. Missouri has a lot of limestone which is great for water filtration. My parents have excellent well water.


So you're a native Missourian too, Water Dragon? Very Happy
