On the Brink of Fairy-Story and History

"... an equally basic passion of mine ab initio was for myth (not allegory!) and for fairy-story, and above all for heroic legend on the brink of fairy-story and history, of which there is far too little in the world (accessible to me) for my appetite. I was an undergraduate before thought and experience revealed to me that these were not divergent interests -- opposite poles of science and romance -- but integrally related." --- John R. R. Tolkien, professor of English (Oxford University), 1951

Subject: Six plumes erupt over 12 hours -- California and Nevada -- ALL VOLCANO SITES

Provides an interesting fit with expanding earth models.

When do we get the offshore underwater earthquakes, followed by tsunamis, that take out nuclear power stations in California?

Or should we be more worried about Stuxnet viruses at nuclear power plants?
