    where geology and people don't see eye to eye.

    I grew up on Maxwelton Beach. Some rich f**ck bought a house on top of the cliff on the hill behind us. This jerk cut down all the trees on the top of the hill so he could get an open view of the Olympics. She warned him as he started doing it that the hill would fall. He lost half his lawn, and my mom's irrigation cistern (which simply captured water flowing down the hill from the aquifers inside) was buried by a slide in a few years.

    Why do these people think physics doesn't apply to them?
