      Jon M, earlier this year, read an article (CA based publication) where it stated the San Adreas fault line intersects with another fault line, running parallel to it, in the Bay. Isn’t this the event which some have referred to as the BIG one that is to eventually occur?

        Janie, so sorry but not the BIG one at all as there are more serious faults nearer to San Francisco and that area. The San Andreas doe meet with another small one but in the Santa Cruz area very serious, and lots of mud slides when it rains hard, heavy and lengthily. They keep saying here drought, drought, drought, but having moved here in 1960, the drought is because the state requires each city to build houses whether needed or not, accept low income people but can rent them to illegals, and the governor stopped water to the agricultural area (that we want to keep with us) and then allowed that water to run into the ocean rather than saving it, he loves to spend our money on Lord knows what because we never see any infrastructure repairs, and deprives us of water. His railroad to nowhere is now up to billions and we have absolutely nothing to show for it, but like all democrats they are becoming millionaires! We happen to have an outstanding mayor in our small city and he is fantastic and a joy because like Trump he is on OUR side and explains everything and what we can’t do without the state ruling against it so the state has imposed so many mean laws/regulations that soon we won’t be able to breathe for the fires he has allow through his stupidity and the smoke is now traveling throughout the state so we have to protect ourselves. As soon as I can, I am out of this state of dictatorship and stupidity.

                Just thought id mention it. Just discovered a private dmv office for legislators in sacramento. And briwn doesnt want a dmv audit. (Cough, motor voter)

                “In California, long lines are a fact of life at Department of Motor Vehicles offices across the state, but for California lawmakers and their legislative staffers, there’s an alternative.

                Hearst’s Sacramento television station, KCRA, has learned of a DMV office that is not open to the public.

                It’s located inside the Legislative Office Building on N Street, adjacent to the state Capitol.

                The office, inside Room 121, has no markings on the door and was locked when KCRA visited it on Thursday, but after knocking, a worker confirmed it was a DMV office and said it’s set up to handle customer complaints that escalate to the legislative branch.”

          I have to say Carrie2, I feel a great deal of sadness when I read comments from you and your fellow Californians Treepers about the declining state of your state. I was stationed at Camp Pendleton from around Dec.1970 to near the end of Dec.1972 and feel in love with California, never regretted my choice of selecting the West Coast; traveled to the north (San Francisco – so charming) and south (San Diego). Absolutely beautiful scenery and the beaches/weather/people were amazing. That you residents have to endure unrelenting massive fires breaking out, perpetual tax increases w/o any benefit, water rationing and the increasing influx of illegals from the South infuriates me. I’m sorry. Wish you had better governors who were more concerned about its bona fide American citizens rather than illegals and lining the pockets of their wealthy friends/constituents.

        The Hayward Fault runs up the east side of San Francisco bay and the San Andreas just one coastal mountain west of the bay and Silicon Valley. In about 1500 the southern San Francisco bay was a meadow one day and was 65 ft under water the next after an enormous earthquake. Most of the chip production there is less than 65 ft above sea level on flat land that has been underwater before.

          Fremont and Newark are more like 15 feet (or less) above sea level.

          Look up the Marina district in San Francisco and “liquefaction” for a rather distressing read. Foster City is sinking at 2-3mm per year, and has been since it was completed…

          It’s probably just a matter of “pick your poison”. Some folks (like me) don’t mind earthquakes, though MANY years ago I used to drive the Cypress structure every day…
          Other folks don’t mind floods, or tornados, or hurricanes, or whatever. It’s probably just what you grow up with.

          Over here in Germany, our biggest (un)natural disaster are the Greens and Die Linke. They do more damage than fire, flood, earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, and everything else put together…

        There’s the San Andreas Fault, the Hayward Fault, and the Calaveras Fault, all running through the bay area. There’s also the Greenville fault, up by Altamont Pass (Livermore
        [we used to say Lawrence live-no-more]). There’s also the Cascadia Fault up north by Eureka, which heads out into the Pacific.

        For some reason a lot of the CA and USGS sites are generating 404s (hope there wasn’t a quake 🙂 ), but here’s some info on the Bay Area faults as a start. Apparently they’re looking at the Hayward fault as the next to go…
        https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/events/1868calif/virtualtour/modern.php

        If you drive 680 South (or north, for that matter) through Fremont, the Calaveras Fault runs underneath it. Occasionally a chunk of the earth under the west side of the road will fall away (usually after a heavy rain) and end up in someone’s yard…

        Janie the Calaveras fault intersects the San Andreas fault in the lovely coastal town of Stinson Beach just north of the Golden Gate bridge. The whole Bay Area is riddled with fault lines including the Hawyard fault which runs right through my alma mater U.C. Berkeley’s football stadium. There are even a few large cracks in the concrete up at the top rim of the stadium! In 1989 I was there for the 6.9 magnitude quake on the San Andreas that caused the cancellation of game one of the A’s vs. Giants World Series. The “big one” you mentioned is that there is a 7% chance a mag 8.0 or greater quake will occur along the San Andreas in the next 30 years. Lots of damage and some loss of life, but California will not split off into the Pacific Ocean 🙂

        The San Andreas that snapped in SF in 1906 and in 1989 covered a length of only 50 miles or so as I remember. The San Andreas that snapped in SoCal in 1857 snapped over a length of around 250 miles – vastly more deadly. There are 2 Big Ones predicted that I know of – the SoCal quake that can potentially destroy Los Angeles, and the fault just off the coast of the NW U.S. going up to Canada, which supposedly can also generate a huge tsunami.

        I’ve been in a few quakes in SoCal from 1981 to 2007, and the power of those things has to be felt up close to be appreciated.

      Jon, wait a minute we do not live on this fault but sometimes get a little fibration from it. There are many!! faults in CA, NYC, the MidWest. We just want to secede from the coastal cities, less San Diego which is more rational and no longer a sanctuary city, Sacramento, the seat of the dictator moonbeam and the legislature of screwed to the left democrats. Now that would allow us to form our own new nation of our Constitutional laws and Bill of Rights, and take back our educational system from the DNC. The rest we want gone has no real values, morals, want communism (call it socialism without a clue they are really two different things) and want to protect their ignorance and money while taking our money and believing we are as ignorant as they. Now, I also don’t wish this particular fault at all in our area where it is strong, because they are with us and not the idiots!

      Cases like Mike Brown and Treyvon make me worry the police are going to be afraid to enforce this correctly. Imagine if you were a police officer, a couple of years from retirement, and stumbled across a family in a park, will giving their kids juice boxes with the plastic straw. Would you be afraid to enforce the law, worried that somehow the situation might escalate, and you would end up a pariah with your picture on the news everyday for a year? What if your taser couldn’t stop the mother? What if the children chose to fight back? That’s how these cases get started. That’s how we descend into lawlessness. I’m glad I’m not a cop.

      Ever been in charge of the diapers in a family before disposables were invented? Ever washed diapers out of a stinking diaper pail? Every day? Eyes burning from the ammonia? Ever dealt with a baby crying round the clock due to a diaper rash that will not go away (because of cloth diapers)?

      Take away zip-loc bags, plastic bottles, plastic toys, plastic plates, whatever…. but, for the love of God, don’t take away disposable diapers!

    Yeah we pack straws everywhere we go. In addition to a car full of grocery bags. Some places do not bother with paper straws, at 4x the plastic price. And I was refused a lid as well in L.A. A bill to ban straws and probably other plastics is going through the state legislature right now.
    Way beyond the nanny state. Even a nanny knows straws keep your teeth cleaner.

    Meanwhile, a middle school was on lockdown as there was a report of a child using their finger to mimick a straw. Frightened parents were racing to the school to pick up their traumatized children. As they were waiting in line, the fire department had to be called out as a Tesla kept bursting into flames. Yet with water being diverted to save the non-native smell farter, or whatever the name of that fish is, the firemen had no way of putting out the fire. The National Guard had to be called in to restore order, but they were promptly arrested for carrying firearms onto school property. This is CNN reporting…and we do not suck..

    California is a desert in more ways than one! Mentally, politically, spiritually: here we see that the kids have more brains than the Dems who supposedly govern the chaos out there.

    And people: don’t move to a desert and then complain about the lack of water!!! Incomprehensibly dumb! My brother lives in San Juan Capistrano, and says that mismanagement of water – and now the politicization of water – has plagued California for decades. He claims that enough water does exist, thanks to various water projects decades ago, but idiotic policies cause the shortages.

    So cities (the article I read specified San Fran, but I’m sure others as well) in Kalifornia hand out crap tons of PLASTIC syringes that are then littered everywhere, but drinking straws are a problem?

    Liberals are so damn stupid.. I remember when they banned natural biodegradable paper grocery bags because it was killing trees so they social pressured the industry who then came out with plastic grocery bags. The plastic grocery bags are now polluting our oceans and killing untold amounts of sea life – LIBERALS DID THIS.. Due to liberal activism they have polluted the earth with tons of plastic. IT IS THEIR FAULT..

    LIBERALISM IS A FAILED, DESTRUCTIVE IDEOLOGY..

    I know around Sundance’s neighborhood they have banned straws. I was in a nearby restaurant and they brought me my soda and I said ‘where’s the straw..’. They said it will cost me three bucks. Three bucks? I said ‘your kidding.’ Nope. Three bucks for a stainless steel straw or drink it from the glass. I rhetorically asked when was the last health department check and how hot was the dishwasher water tested at?

    (Restaurant glasses are commonly not properly sanitized because the dish washing machine is the most neglected piece of equipment in a restaurant. They commonly test positive for streptococcus. How do I know – family members who have had two generations of restaurant ownership – and guess who was the “dishwasher”..).

    I paid three bucks for a metal straw..

  38. How will the kids have spitball fights ?

    In grade school we used to have spitball fights.
    We would ball up a small piece of paper , wet with spit , insert at the end of the straw, aim , blow to launch spitball at target….usually, the target was the girl you had a crush on…go figure 🙂

      Naw, the old Bic pen was the best. Take the ink filled container out and remove the bottom cap using your thumb nail.
      We used to cut them down to size, so you could hide them in your hand. Then, take turns spit-balling the teacher when their back was turned while they were writing on the blackboard. Fun times!

    In Chicago Rahm Emanuel attempted to ban plastic grocery bags. Well that didn’t go over so well because a lot of people take public transportation and paper bags do not work when you have to carry groceries on foot or on the train or bus. So they came back but we are now charged 7 cents per bag and I’m not sure where that money goes but I’m sure someone is stealing it, because that’s how Chicago rolls you know.
