Trivia 6/12

Did you know…

The deepest lake in the US is Crater Lake, OR. It formed when an ancient volcano eruption 42 times as powerful as Mount St. Helens blew, and the mountain collapsed some 7,700 years ago. Approximately 4.6 trillion gallons of rain and melted snow filled the crater it left, creating a lake that today is 1,932 feet deep.

CRAP !!!
the san andreas fault is a narrow crack in the earth's crust that extends from northern california southward to san bernadino.
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.
