Hey, I tried looking up those sites again, and now it can't locate the remote server. Do you think he might have seen my comment yesterday and relocated his site out of the east coast into the west coast ;) .

I'd be interested where ever his house is in the strike zone or not, and where ever or not he is trying to sell it? I think people that write stuff like this usually believe what they say through.

That's a huge shame we can't see the stuff anymore!

Do you think it might be a conspiracy to depopulate parts of the Atlantic sea board so that people from the deep hills of Arkansas can take them over?

Not even Jack Bauer can stop this from happening.

what? a tidal wave...er tsunami. Well this is real, the discovery channel has a show about it. Except it's one of thoese "in the future" shows. Theres a huge fault running through one of the Canary islands or Azores islands i think it was. Anyway part of this island will one dya fall into the sea. This is spose to produce a mega tsunami or something. But they also have that show where yellowstone blows up, so i guess it's just dangerous everywhere.


Well hey look at this, it is the canary islands after all

Maybe we should stop this, as it is poor taste, and wait to see what happens. Then we can comment.

Survival tip:

100 Meter waves:

Mountains aren't going to stop it unless the mountain is pretty big, the secret is energy dissipation (the reason these waves can turn corners). There is the risk that the wave might have so much energy as to ride up and over the mountain, so it is best to have at least one mountain between you and the mountain you are standing on, as if the wave has enough energy it could ride up the second mountain etc as well. If on a table top mountain plain, try to find very high hills far in the plain, as the water may well just flow around it.

Well, at least my survival plan, for something like this, is something like that.

I'm pretty sure Jack Bauer can punch the wave away.
