Rollin' Like Sisyphus

How To Spend A Sunday Morning

Posted in Dog Days by Huckleberry on August 25, 2014

In a brief 24 hours, multiple earthquakes of sizable force rattled and rolled all up and down the Pacific coast of the Americas, from Valparaiso and Lima to San Francisco and Eureka, and then this also freakishly happened:

So I took the morning to go through all the provisions, both regular and emergency, went out and picked up a couple of extra pallets of water, checked that my plethora of hand-crank radios were right where each needed to be.
It’s all probably nothing, but “wasting” a Sunday morning by taking stock, refreshing my memory on what all was prepped, and topping off the till is worth way more in simple peace-of-mind then the loss of a couple of hours I would have spent doing something else stupid.
The ground beneath your feet is only as solid as it wants to be.
Good luck.

    Watch the dude in the bottom left corner at :10. Who walks like that?

    I’m sure it has something to do with a drug cartel.
    Also the fat kid in the white shirt at 1:11 that just all of a sudden decides to take off running.
    Something’s not on the up-and-up with that.

    No, the footage is being rate-altered. Things look funny when sped up, especially chubbosos walking at pace, and any woman. The whole hip thing, instead of the shoulder sway, plus quite often being pigeon-toed. Fat boys just straddle that big belly, sort of like riding a horse, without the horse, stirrups, or even saddle. Footage sometimes looks to be sped up, sometimes slowed down. Odd.

    That crack happened a while ago. They suspect farmers were diverting water, which caused an underground river, undermining enough to create a collapse. But who knows. I doubt if they do, or that they would get it right even if they had the facts. I’m just not sure if they are wrong because they are so well educated, paid to be wrong, or threatened to be wrong. I just know broken clocks have a better chance at being right by at least orders of magnitude.

    Never mind. It’s always good to check preps in any case. Doing the right thing, even for potentially the wrong or no reason, on the lessor scales of things, is still a check on the positive side of things. I’ll pray that you don’t find out that they were wrongly right in the worst possible ways. Oh, and… *duck* Maybe run. :p
