    Saw that the other day... Not much we can do about it. Kinda like when years ago they were saying a huge earthquake was going to put 1/3 of CA under water. Mother nature at her best....

    Yeah I keep hearing that one day the San Andreas fault is going to rupture, with an earthquake so powerful that the entire geography of California will be permanently altered....

    Here in NZ we are in a similar situation, we straddle the Pacific and Indo-Australian plates and are pretty earthquake prone. Scientists say we are well overdue for "the big one". We even had a 7.1 earthquake in September last year that caused over $4billion in damage (this was 3 hours north of where I live). With the flooding in Australia, earthquakes in Pakistan, the Haiti earthquake, it makes me think of the whole 2012 scenario...

    Well, we Californians don't care because we NEVER prepare for this sort of stuff.

    Then when it DOES happen, we wonder why 7-11 is charging $50 for a gallon of water!!

    Depending on who you ask...

    1) We are being too heavily taxed so we can't buy a water purifier
    2) Corporations are gauging their prices so only the rich can buy a water purifier
    3) We were too lazy to buy a water purifier
    4) We don't know how to horde water

    Or a combination of the 4. This is the reason I live off soda :D

    Without a doubt we'll be getting hit with the big one eventually and especially in the LA area, there's really not much besides the basics that can be done to prepare. If Northridge thought they had a bad shaker, it's going to pale in comparison to the release that's bound to happen in the near future with the San Andreas.

    Hah... I'm not sure heavily taxed is the word for it. Raped? Pillaged? Hell, We probably need the rain anyhow... At least I'll have a green lawn. :D

    Get a few friends, go live way in the middle of nowhere, set up an environmentally friendly house that runs completely off the grid and grow your own produce... There are too many corporations that are using the practise of price gouging to bring in more profits than they need. Sometimes it really pisses me off that the corporations can be so greedy and get away with anything they want, but as the old saying goes ; the bigger they are the harder they fall. I look at how Enron used to be worth something like $25 billion and then they went bust...

    It's media bs to make people read stuff. There's no storm heading towards cali right now. It is hypothetical, means it may or may not happen one day. if you google california super storm, you can read the whole story.
