don't tell me you'all are gonna move to california now.
if you remember tecumseh i think it was, who was college educated i think, where he learned about eclipses of the moon and earthquakes, he used the eclipse as a ploy on his fellow indians to "predict" natural events, anyway, i think he used the eclipse as a battle cry to unite against the US, but was underimined by his shaman brother, who was probably jealous. anyway, i think he also "predicted" the earthquake that changed the course of the mississippi about 10 miles or something like that, i think it may have actually flowed backwards as well. also, remember, yellowstone is sitting on top of either the first or second largest megavolcano in the world. it's actually pretty interesting there hasn't been more earthquakes in the midwest, or volcano's for that matter. obviously we get them because we are on an active fault line. another interesting fault line is on land where krakatoa is. when it blew, it was the first world wide event that was covered globally as the transcontinental wires had just been laid and it was covered almost live. i think the shock waves from the blast was recorded at least 7 times at it clapped back and forth around the globe. it changed the weather world wide. anyway, krakato sits on top of two merging land masses, which is why you get volcanos. these two land masses that are merging which are only a few miles apart, have extremely different animals on the two islands on either side of krakatoa, on e is java which is actually west of java and the other island bali. this line is called wallace's line, which is bascially the junction between australia and the orient. he was probably ahead of darwin for the theory of evolution, as darwin found out about him and rushed to publish. wallace was an eccentric, and in my book, should get credit for evolution, not darwin. there's a great book about krakatoa, from the news gathering perspective, and how it was covered in the news. if only the dinosaurs had radio back then.
