Subduction may be pulling India


It's always a great mystery why India continues to jam up against the Himalayas. The average thing to do would be to stop. But if India is just a piece of oceanic crust, heated up a bit by volcanism, then it would be cooling under Mt. Everest, and going to its 'Ever Rest'.... HAR HAR!

We'll just have to wait for more seismic imaging from under those mountains, which I am sure is a bitch to do!
