Sh*t earthquakes do while I'm gone

So, I was in Montreal for a few days.  I'm a kept man, so I just diddled around and looked at new construction.  They are sticking with straight pillar construction for the condos, and volcanic bedrock seems close everywhere, so I'm confident the buildings will do well in an earthquake.  Those shitty bridges are  something else!  Anyway I ran out of there before those 'pay nothing' students had their big demonstration.  Just like being in Paris!

While I was gone there was this little earthquake in Mexico.  Look at the beautiful subduction zone!  Do you think a measly M7.4 does it justice?  We are going to get a ripper M9 there one day!  Then we'll see the Mexico City basin do the jelly dance!
