    I point to earthquakes, and I point to icebergs, that is all.

    To summarize: if the planet jiggles like a fat girl on a trampoline, icebergs can get shaken loose. Join us next week, when we draw a tentative link between baby-shaking in previous decades and current supporters of the Tea Party.

    Cynicism aside, that is a pretty cool story about the icebergs. It’s just another way to illustrate the nearly unimaginable force exerted during a tectonic shift.

    Not much a surprise to anyone who’s grown up in a region with lots of lake ice … used to seeing the effect of waves on ice sheets in the spring.
