    Well if Kommiefornia won't succeed from the union perhaps they will succeed from North America via nature. SJ 40

    When California falls into the ocean, where would the new Hollywood be?

    Unfortunately, it will probably end up down the road from me in Austin.

    This year's rains have killed off the drought for the most part. They were talking about pumping water into the ground to fill up the aquifers. There is a Ron of snow up in the Sierras so they want to hang onto it as it melts vs let it flow out to sea.

    Does someone think this only happens when CA pumps water out of the ground? Or oil? Or natural gas?

    Good catch. ;)

    Yep, sounds like AZ is having subsidence problems due to water pumping.

    The experts say that the caldera in Yellowstone is rising. The change in elevation has to be made up somewhere to equalize. So San Joaquin Valley is just equalizing..........Of course this is just conjecture, and the reality may be that subduction really works.

    Don't be surprised if the crack is man-made and illegal aliens come pouring out.

    We have a Hollywood here and it is just a bit north of the old Ivan Tors studio at where they filmed Flipper and later Miami Vice. And certainly we are perhaps even unfairly competitive weirdness wise.
