Tectonic Time Bomb

I just love that expression! It was used in an article describing the Hayward fault in California. People generally have a thing about timing of these earthquakes. If it shows that the average interval is 140 years, and it's been 139 years since the last one, then they go all bananas! In reality, the concept of 'due dates' doesn't really work.
