USGS had it at 6.3, so significantly more powerful than the 120KT yield.

Re: Responsibility and Accountability in a SHTF Situation

Bumping this due to Harvey's effects. There have been a few people shot and HPD has arrested a couple dozen 'armed looters' in addition to the more common people doing crimes of opportunity. A key theme from raptor's initial post and most of the followups has been that while the S was truly HTF last...

Re: Ok Now You Are a Refugee...

bump for the new friends here, relevant again as we look at Harvey. Where I live we got a ton of rain but no major flooding. We do have maybe 150k refugees in town, though that should start to drop quickly. That's caused some second order effects of supply problems in town. We normally have around 1...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

The debt clock is sobering to anyone with an understanding of basic economics. The two that give me heartburn are: The total US debt per citizen $207,963. So every person who lives in your household owes this amount. The other is the fact that the total US debt is 103% of GDP. Translated that means...

Re: Assessment Skills: Abdominal Pain (painiac Essential Gui

Characterization of Pain Rating: Pain is rated on a scale of 1 (almost no pain) to 10 (the worst pain imaginable). This scale is highly subjective. Smartass patients frequently try to rate their pain as being off the possible scale, like "11". As in, "Twelve out of ten healthcare professionals anno...

those are the folks that have scared the hell out of me for decades.
