Wasting Time on The Web

This is the kind of thing this label was meant for...
  • Go to Google
  • Type in elgoog
  • Hit "I'm Feeling Lucky"
  • Type in elgoog
  • Hit "ykcuL gnileeF m'I"
  • Repeat as desired
If that doesn't spin you around in circles, I don't know what will.

Followup: Also too, I was reminded of this: 7 years ago shrub declared victory in Iraq. At that time, if you just typed WMD into Google and hit "I'm feeling lucky," you'd get this page. Now you have to type in "404 weapons not found."

Geologists: 'We May Be Slowly Running Out Of Rocks'

RALEIGH, NC—A coalition of geologists are challenging the way we look at global stone reserves, claiming that, unless smarter methods of preservation are developed, mankind will eventually run out of rocks.
Kaiser claims that humanity has "wreaked havoc" on the earth's stones by picking them up, carrying them around, and displacing them from their natural habitat.

"A rock can take millions of years to form, but it only takes a second for someone to skip a smooth pebble into a lake, and then it is gone." Dr. Kaiser said. "Perhaps these thoughtless rock-skippers don't care if they leave our planet completely devoid of rocks, but what about our children? Don't they deserve the chance to hold a rock and toss it up and down a few times?"
(The Onion) The second paragraph reminds me of a favorite pastime on field trips- screwing with the geologic record. One time we left a chunk of coal near the Owens Valley Fault Scarp near Lone Pine (a site frequently visited on geological field trips, which is key). On the return to Oregon, we left a large block of granite from Lone Pine in the pumice from the Mazama eruption along Highway 97 north of Chemult. In turn, I once found a piece of (Paleozoic?) fossiliferous limestone at Siskyou Summit along I-5 near the OR-CA border. That cut is made entirely of Cascade volcanic rock; the nearest limestone (though not marble) is hundreds of miles away.

With all deference to the experts interviewed by the Onion, I'd prefer to think "picking them up, carrying them around, and displacing them from their natural habitat," not only challenges young geologists to think critically, but provides unique opportunities for the rocks themselves to hybridize, introducing novel lithic varieties for future generations of geologists to study and learn from.

And in other science news from The ONN,

Mars Rover Beginning To Hate Mars

But as the winter lingered, Spirit began producing thousands of pages of sometimes rambling and dubious data, ranging from complaints that the Martian surface was made up almost entirely of the same basalt, to long-winded rants questioning the exorbitant cost and scientific relevance of the mission.

"Granted, Spirit has been extraordinarily useful to our work," Callas said. "Last week, however, we received three straight days of images of the same rock with the message 'HAPPY NOW?'"
Well, yes. I am. Thanks, Onion

April 30, 1980

It's been nearly three weeks since an update on my recollections from the eruption of Mt. St Helens 30 years ago this spring. This morning, Eric Klemetti at the Eruptions blog sent out a call for St Helens memories, and pointed me at a resource I hadn't seen before, the Cascade Volcano Observatory's St Helens 30th anniversary page. (Actually, cross-checking, it looks like the same material I've been using previously, from the Mt. St Helens National Volcanic Monument, though the CVO page is likely the source) And given what I found there, today would be a good day for an update.

As I commented on April 10, between living in an unfamiliar place with a lot of unfamiliar people, coping with a return to school after nearly three years, and my initial excitement with having the volcano getting all uppity just for my sake (as it kind of seemed at the time), most of the month between the middle of April and the middle of May was a bit of a let down. There would be reports on the number of quakes, whether there had been an ash plume, and if so how high it went. We would be told the the north face has bulged out some number of feet farther. But the reports became shorter and more and more repetitive. In the Oregonian, they were moved further and further back into the front section. For the most part, the volcano was no longer front page news.

Desperate then, as now, for some angle, journalists spent more time with Harry Truman at the Mt. St Helens Lodge than with the scientists. I was heartily sick of the man. An obvious publicity hound, I have no doubt he fully expected the whole thing to blow over, and reap plenty of income from the free exposure. Much as I'm ashamed to admit it, I was hoping the mountain would fall on him.

Mt. St Helens had become, if not boring or dull, routine. There was, to me, at the time, no sense of narrative or development. The volcano, as awesome and beautiful as it was, was no longer a major attention-getter for me. Yeah, I'd go through the paper nearly every day and clip every article I could find, but most of those articles said basically the same things, over and over.

However, I distinctly remember this news, from 30 years ago today: "During the quiet, USGS geologist Dave Johnston sampled water from a small pond that had formed in the crater bottom." These pictures (archived here) give me the willies; even without 20/20 hindsight, I don't think I could have been persuaded to do this:

USGS geologist, David Johnston, samples water of Mount St. Helens crater lake, April 30, 1980, image by Rick Hoblitt, USGS

So it wouldn't be fair to say I'd quit paying attention, but rather that I often felt as if it wasn't really worth paying attention to it. Still, the bulge and that massive gash across the top of the peak were pretty damned ominous...

This is part 8 in a multi-part series on the events leading up to the catastrophic eruption of Mt. St Helens on May 18th, 1980, 30 years ago this spring. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7.

Retitling Laura

Via BuzzFeed, here's the "funny meme I just have to participate in" of the day: retitling Laura Bush's new book cover. 'Cause "“Spoken From The Heart,” is just too insipid. You can download the blank here.
Gratuitous "Joker" reference, yes, but the resemblance is creee-py!
Yes, Laura, we've been meaning to talk to you about that...
I think this one is my favorite.

Millions Wasted on Something Called "Oil Spill Monitoring"

Heeeere's Bobby!
In Baton Rouge, Gov. Bobby Jindal declared a state of emergency Thursday afternoon, saying that the oil slick, which has been spreading perilously closer to shore, “threatens the state’s natural resources."
From the NYT.
Janet Napolitano, the Secretary for Homeland Security, said at a White House briefing on Thursday that the oil slick was “a spill of national significance.” That designation meant that federal resources from many regions can be used to combat it.
I'll bet Texas is pissed that their tax dollars might be put to work somewhere else. I'm curious exactly which resources BJ is woried about... my suspicion is that he's concerned this might interfere with more drilling.

Also, here's a semi-answer to the question of how long it might take to get the leaks covered with domes to recapture escaped oil: "....dropping domes over the leaks and routing the oil to the surface to be collected, an operation untested at such depths that would take at least two to four more weeks..." (from a list of potential measures to control the spill)

Feel the Pain

There is a well-done multi-media interactive graphic extravaganza (I never know what to call these things) at The Guardian today, illustrating some of the details unfolding off the Mississippi delta. The big news, which came out late yesterday, is that apparently there's another leak, and the previous estimate of 42,000 gallons per day has been raised by a factor of five.


One of the approaches to containing the spill, using open-bottomed "funnels" (my word) to capture the leaking oil, makes better sense to me now, as does the idea of a "relief well" (apparently, the industry's term). The relief well will take about 3 months to complete, and no estimate is given, as far as I've seen, for how long it will take to implement the recapture method.

So we're looking at ~5000 barrels a day for as long as the next 90 days.

How's that "drill, baby, drill" thing workin' out for ya, huh?

(via EB Misfit)

Not only that, it's looking as if our tax dollars may be used for this clean-up:
She also opened up the possibility that if the government determines that BP, which is responsible for the cleanup, cannot handle the spill with the resources available in the private sector, that Defense Department could become involved to contribute technology.
Not that I'm against that; in an emergency I feel like we have to use the resources available to solve the problems present. But I'm not happy about it. Interesting bit of news from a couple of days ago:
Profits at oil giant BP have more than doubled from a year ago on the back of rising oil prices.

Replacement cost profit for January to March was $5.6bn (£3.6bn), compared with $2.4bn for the first quarter of 2009 - a 135% rise. The profit figure is also up from the $3.45bn profit made in the last three months of 2009.
Now I feel pretty strongly that switching out from petroleum-based energy to alternatives any time in the near future- less than a decade or two- is unlikely to be practical or even possible. And I feel pretty strongly that for non-energy uses it's even less likely. Given that, I support finding and using what domestic supplies are available. We will never meet our own needs, but we should use what we have. In other words, I actually support "drill, baby, drill," though I suspect in detail, very differently from Ms. Palin and her tea partiers.

I believe energy extraction can be done responsibly. I just don't believe that our current regulatory structures and enforcement foster that end. And I don't feel that, as things stand, it's in energy corporations' interests to do so.

Here's my suggestion: fine BP $5.6 billion, and put it toward the response and developing a serious set of environmental and safety regulations, and the infrastructure to enforce them. Do the same for Massey Energy. I am so sick of corporations resisting regulatory reform, hindering enforcement, and cutting every corner they can find.

When they hurt people and the planet, we should have the means to make them feel that pain. Until we do, they'll follow SOP, raking in billions and ravaging everything around them. Yeah, you could say I'm a little pissed.

Derision Putz

It was announced a bit over a year ago that dubya was going to make a book, and it was announced yesterday that it would be published on November 9 of this year.

I can't wait.

As it happens, I was privy to a sneak preview of an early draft. And since there is currently a meme circulating in the left-leaning portion of the political blogosphere to provide a more appropriate cover, here's my offering to reflect that excerpt, Chapter 3.
And in case you didn't notice the title of the post, I'd suggest we change the title of the book, as well.

Other particpants that I know of thus far are:

Followup: Kill It With Fire

test burn of oil
Environment Canada
In 1993, Canadian and American government scientists conducted a test burn of an
oil slick off the coast of Newfoundland.
In my last post, I rhetorically asked the question, "'cause a sooty fire drifting toward shore has got to be better than oil drifting toward shore... right?" I can see all sorts of potential nastiness arising from this decision, but apparently the answer is "Yes, it is actually a better option than trying to simply contain and clean up the spill."

Like I said, lots of interesting news today. Not necessarily happy news, but interesting news.

Wednesday Wednesday

Glurg... too much interesting stuff today. Gulf of Mexico to be set on fire ('cause a sooty fire drifting toward shore has got to be better than oil drifting toward shore... right?)... grease fire Greece threatens to burn down European economy... volcanic architecture... seismic pupfish... glurg. Looks like Lockwood is set to "consume," rather than "blog" today. But I don't want to forget Wednesday Wednesday. From here.

The Lesson We Need to Learn

There was an amusing post at The Volcanism Blog a few days ago, listing some of the disruptions "in addition to grounding European aviation for days on end and exhausting headline-writers’ supplies of volcano puns."
The UK General Election … betting on 2010 temperatures … Southern California music festival … UK schoolgirls’ geography field trip … the Norwegian Government (iPad to the rescue) … touring wrestlers … Boston Marathon runners … the London Book Fair … health of pets … football, ice hockey and running … Premier League referees … the gilded progresses of celebs and pop stars … John Cleese’s trip home … football, cycling and running … Polish state funeral … transport of wounded soldiers … Dubai luxury hotel opening … Morocco golf tournaments … exams, exotic foods and surgery … yet more celebs (Hollywood ‘paralized’, no less) …
That's just a third of the list, and I haven't included the links he found for each item. Now most of the disruptions listed in that post resulted from the grounding, but nevertheless, the estimated economic impact of 2.5 billion Euros seems more and more credible, and it may go yet higher.

As I and others have noted before, the airline companies have been quick to cry "foul," and start demanding compensation for their losses. It does seem to me, though, that over the last couple of days, they've been less vocal. There was a very interesting piece in Der Spiegel yesterday delving further into the regulatory structures- or lack thereof- that necessitated the grounding, and perhaps prolonged it further than was strictly necessary.
The reality, however, looks different: Airlines and primarily the aviation industry are responsible for a poorly prepared warning system that went on autopilot during the crisis.

There is a global network of nine volcanic ash observatories under the direction of the United Nations' International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO). The early warning center located in London sounded the alarm on Wednesday the week before last. A cloud of ash from Iceland was rapidly moving towards the continent. The result: Europe's airspace was shut down.

But it was unclear how to proceed after that. "The system very effectively ensures that airspace with clouds of ash is closed," says Werner Knorr, head of flight operations at Lufthansa, "but it doesn't say how air traffic should resume once the cloud has dispersed."
The industry didn't want to put the time, effort and resources into figuring out a decent set of safety limits for ash. Then when there was a major ash fall, there were no firm, pre-agreed upon numbers to say when it was safe to fly again. This is a lesson that we seem to be doomed to learn forget over and over and over with respect to natural disasters: it's not cheap to prepare for them, even when they are inevitable, and predictable or forecastable. But it's many times more expensive to deal with them if you haven't bothered to prepare.

At least in this case, the cost is monetary alone. No one died.

Tuesday is the deadline to register if you want to vote in the May 18 primary.

You can register online at the state Elections Division's website. The deadline for online registration is 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.

You also can mail in voter registration cards. Registration forms also may be printed from the Elections Division site. Registrations sent by surface mail will be valid for next month's primary election if postmarked no later than Tuesday.

To check your registration, got to and click on Am I Registered to Vote?

Ballots start going in the mail on Friday. They must be received by your county elections office no later than 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 18. Postmarks don't count for ballots.

To bone up on candidates and issues, use The Oregonian's Voter Guide.

(Oregon Live)

Registration forms are available at the post office, the Public Library across from Central Park on Monroe, and probably (though I'm not positive about these) at various locations on the OSU campus, such as the MU front desk, the OSU Bookstore, and the Valley Library.

Can't vote if you don't register. And don't complain if you don't vote.

This Is Just Plain Wrong

After I finished that last post, I went outside the Interzone for a smoke. While it is not unusual to see a Prius parked at the curb, I don't think I've ever seen this plaque before.Now I'm not going to act like I'm offended, but this is just plain wrong.
  • T rex was not piscivorous.
  • Even if it was, its forearms were nowhere near large and strong enough to hold a fish that large, proportionally.
  • Its forearms weren't long enough to reach its mouth. The poor thing wouldn't be able to finish its meal.
  • And how could you let that dear, dear dino get so grimy?
  • Finally, even though this is a hybrid, I think you may be reinforcing the misconcept that gasoline is the result of dead dinosaurs. It's not. It's the result of dead algae. (I blame Sinclair)
So you have some 'splainin' to do, unknown Prius driver.


(The Onion)

If you haven't heard of Boobquake yet, pull up a chair and let me tell you about it. Last week, an Iranian boob cleric made the following comment:
"Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes… What can we do to avoid being buried under the rubble? There is no other solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to Islam’s moral codes."
Old story, right? During the 80's, there was a dog-eared copy of The Watchtower proclaiming that sin caused earthquakes in the geology students' study room... it may still be there, as far as I know. And as far as I know, this little bit of perniciousness goes back to the beginnings of guilt-oriented religions: when bad things happen to people, it's because the people have been bad. And to prevent bad things happening, all you have to do is what you're told, as channeled from God via their human mouth pieces. Bleargh.

So in response to this particular piece of oral flatulence, Blag Hag, AKA Jen McCreight, a graduate student at Purdue, established Boobquake to test the hypothesis, "Female immodesty triggers earthquakes." She has been promoting the event at her blog, and created a Facebook page, encouraging people to participate to the extent of their comfort.
"On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that's your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake."
Below is a photo from her most recent post, as of this writing, demonstrating her earnest effort to incur the wrath of... whatever deity is in charge of making the earth jiggle shake.
Okay, I've been aware of this for a while; as you might guess, this sort of thing gets loose in the geoblogosphere very, very quickly. It's not the kind of thing I tend to blog about, though. So why the exception? There have been such a raft of posts, ranging from hysterical to thoughtful, that I just had to acknowledge the incredible power of boobs.It's kind of odd to find myself posting photos of immodestly dressed women, but in the spirit of scientific inquiry, I feel compelled to participate. And obviously, my own hairy manboobs do not possess the "supernatural power" of women's mammaries.

So without further ado, here are some of posts others have put out there, and pushed me to participate:

Lee Allison at Arizona Geology

Anne Jefferson at Highly Allochthonous, with the following quote from Jen, which went a long way toward calming my discomfort at what seemed initially an exercise in objectification:
I'm asking women to wear their most "immodest" outfit that they already would wear, but to coordinate it all on the same day for the sake of the experiment. Heck, just showing an ankle would be considered immodest by some people. I don't want to force people out of their comfort zones, because I believe women have the right to choose how they want to dress. Please don't pressure women to participate if they don't want to. If men ogle, that's the fault of the men, not me for dressing how I like. If I want to a show a little cleavage or joke about my boobs, that's my prerogative.
And also, Rachel at 4.5 Billion Years of Wonder helped clarify the feminist issues here:
Right now, it's easier for women who meet societal beauty standards to have that required confidence. But you know what? There's a lot of women who don't match that ridiculous beauty ideal who still have that amazing confidence, and good on them. And those of us that don't? It's not the fault of a silly event like Boobquake, and no one is getting on our case about it anyway.
So this event in and of itself isn't about objectification, but the reaction to it is symptomatic of society's incapacity to deal with women's sexuality and objectification.

Chuck at Lounge of the Lab Lemming makes the case that we already have a robust data set to test the hypothesis.

Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer, notes that there is a certain risk in this undertaking:
And there’s the weakness in the Boobquake plan. The idea of Boobquake is to debunk the cleric by saying that women can reveal their boobs and not start a seismic event (ignoring perhaps the tremors caused by geek guys habitually running to their computers every few minutes and checking for updates). But without defining the time period, the earthquake size, and the region in advance, this can actually reinforce the cleric’s claims! Given the huge tracts of land involved, no matter when women of the world unveil their decolletage, there is bound to be a magnitude 5 quake within an hour or so of the event, and a mag 6 quake within a day.
He also posted the following photo with the caption, "The actual cleavage
that causes earthquakes."
Which is all well and good, except that's not cleavage. This is cleavage (from):Goodness. (pant, pant) Talk about immodest! And for my final link,

So there you have it. I officially acknowledge the arcane powers of certain lady parts to cause wanton destruction over huge tracts of land. I'll tack on one more photo almost guaranteed to trigger a 9.5 along my neighborhood subduction zone.

503 Years Ago Today

Via The Bend Bulletin:
In 1507, German cartographer Martin Waldseemueller named a huge land mass in the Western Hemisphere “America,” in honor of Italian navigator Amerigo Vespucci.
Apparently, this is a big day in the history of navigation. From the same link,
In 1859, ground was broken for the Suez Canal.

In 1959, the St. Lawrence Seaway opened to shipping.
From Wikipedia,
In 1513 Waldseemüller appears to have had second thoughts about the name, probably due to contemporary protests about Vespucci’s role in the discovery and naming of America, or just carefully waiting for the official discovery of the whole northwestern coast of what is now called North America, as separated from East Asia. In his reworking of the Ptolemy atlas, the continent is labelled simply Terra Incognita (unknown land). Despite the revision, 1,000 copies of the world maps had since been distributed, and the original suggestion took hold. While North America was still called Indies in documents for some time, it was eventually called America as well.
I've always been a little curious about how these two continents came to be known as America, rather than Columbia. I mean, I knew where the name came from, but why didn't he choose the actual discoverer as the eponym, rather than a second explorer and writer? According to the excerpt below, the decision was made because it was Vespucci's observations, not those of Columbus, that made it clear this was an entirely new land:
Apparently among most map-makers until that time, it was still erroneously believed that the lands discovered by Christopher Columbus, Vespucci, and others formed part of the Indies of Asia. Thus some believe that it is impossible that Waldseemüller could have known about the Pacific, which is depicted on his map. The historian Peter Whitfield has theorized that Waldseemüller incorporated the ocean into his map because Vespucci's accounts of the Americas, with their so-called "savage" peoples, could not be reconciled with contemporary knowledge of India, China, and the islands of Indies. Thus, Waldseemüller reasoned, the newly discovered lands could not be part of Asia, but must be separate from it, a leap of intuition that was later proved uncannily precise.
Also from Wikipedia, the above is apparently the chart under discussion. I love old maps, but the full size image is ginormous, 13,708 × 7,590 pixels, file size: 19.65 MB, and my computer basically choked on it. Below is a crop (from the same page as above) showing our part of the world getting named.
