Busgus elevates earthquake odds to ridiculous levels


I looked it up and argued with people on my collection, but it is true.  They have knocked up the hazard by a factor of 50 for the next week because of this cluster.

They've always said that a cluster knocks up the odds by 1 to 10% for the next week.  I blame this typo on their new 'PR Wall of Suits'.  Nobody can get to a scientist now, with Trumpy scaring them to death.  So this just goes on and on.  The Wall will never admit they were wrong.

ps.  lots of articles tiptoeing around this now.  All of them state that a cluster only adds 1% to the odds of it happening anyway.  None of them go after the busgus.  They are too kind.  :)

Another fish story

I have the world's worst fishing dog.  I've told her again and again to not snap at the hook because it's 'bo-bo'.  Now she takes it as her job to warn everybody about it.  So I take up my fishing bag and rod, and she barks all the way down.  At the dock, through the very clear water, I see  the Godzilla Fish that lives under the dock.  He's wandering around.  So I start untangling my fishing line, and cast.  "Bark, bark, look out it's sharp!"

I dangle the bait in front of the fish.  He just looks at it.  Then he actually tilts his body up and looks at me.  "You're kidding, right?  The dog told me all about it. "  His continued to diss my artificial worm, and I gave up, to look for other fish.

Our dock fish have been trained not to fall for the artificial crap.  The only way I could catch a dock fish is to shoot the dog, and sneak up with a very light line, with a real worm totally covering the hook.  I actually caught one like that.  Somebody kept the dog busy.

Cottage Report

The season is winding down at the old shack.  We close up on Canadian Thanksgiving.  It's getting darn cold, the nights are near-freezing.  I'm stacking firewood, and clearing dead brush.  We had our nice summer, and this is more typical weather.
