There is a lot more where that came from. The chevrons mark who said waht and when.
I joined a series of amateur writing groups looking for a way to improve my communication skills. I developed a bad style deliberately when I discovered sci.geo.earthquakes. The place was full of rampant muff-divers.whose sole raison d’être was to prevent any logical discussion about forecasting geo-phenomena. I discovered I had a talent for writing before I really knew what I was talking about. All I really understood was that I was going to be taking the “road less travelled”.
The result has been that apart from one or two spammers I have a blog that forecasts earthquakes which nobody reads. I once wrote to the British Army telling them about a likely ‘quake in Nepal. this brought the predictable results that I have become used to. And the last
