CRAP !!!
the san andreas fault is a narrow crack in the earth's crust that extends
from northern California southward to san Bernardino.
geologists call its movement a "right-lateral strike-slip
displacement",meaning that if one stands on either side of the fault,
objects on the other side would appear to move right.
the west side of the fault is moving northward, drifting as much as two
inches per year.
at that rate, los angeles will be a suburb of san Francisco in about 15
million years.

i missed #s 1 and 3, guessing '47 and gin and juice, respectively.

my boy has "are you smarter than a 5th grader" game for his nintendo dsi, which we play on road trips. it's amazing how much you can learn from a game. a few of the questions were on the game.
