Quake In Central Pakistan Makes New Island : NPR

… SIEGEL: Now there are also very intriguing reports that this quake created an island off the coast of Pakistan. How is that?

HARRIS: Well, I can’t vouch for the photo that’s making the rounds on the Internet, but it turns out this is possible. It turns out that buried in the sediment offshore from Pakistan, there’s a type of ice that’s made mostly of methane. And it turns out that during earthquakes, this methane can sometimes be released from its ice form and turn into a gas.

And when that happens, it can create a mud volcano, which can push its way though the surface of the ocean. These mud islands have actually formed in previous quakes in Pakistan, so it’s possible another one has emerged during this quake. But the islands are low-lying and they don’t last very long. They’re - it’s a big surprise though. …



So, no weird temple constructed with abnormal, non-Euclidean geometry loathsomely redolent of spheres and dimensions apart from ours, huh?

I’m bringing this back because this morning it was announced that Malala Yousafzai has been officially nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Congratulations, princess.

Rupee Mania Spreads Across Pakistan: Iran Somehow Involved « Antiwar.com Blog

The humble one rupee coin, worth around the same as a US one cent coin, isn’t exactly big money in Pakistan. But a mania has spread across the country, apparently originating in Makran last week, which has everyone, including the nation’s central bank, taking notice.

One rumor had it that the coins, which are made mostly of aluminum with a small amount of copper, had been “accidentally” made with gold, and what started as a rumor with children collecting the coins eventually had adults buying up the coins en masse, at a significant premium, under the assumption that they would pay off big.

The funnier rumor, however, is where the Iranian nuclear program enters into this, and the public began to believe that these coins had large amounts of weapons-grade uranium minted into them, to be smuggled to Iran for making nuclear arms.

Needless to say, neither of the rumors proved to be true, and the Pakistani State Bank is warning people not to pay a premium for the coins. Tip for Pakistanis: a coin of the same size as the 1 rupee coin made of weapons grade uranium would weigh about 10 times what they normally do.

People who believe absurd rumo/urs are so cute, aren’t they?

Ta much, dear Edosan!
