A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. - James Dent

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

In response to Board Question #48356, there is actual scientific proof to this claim, or something similar. California lies west of the San Andreas fault, putting it on a different tectonic plate (The Pacific Plate http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_Plate) than the rest of North America ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_Plate). However, according to this ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Andreas_Fault#The_San_Andreas_Fault_in_popular_culture) article about the San Andreas fault, because of the type of plate it is, while California may eventually become an island, it is not plausible that it will simply fall in to the sea. (The relevant statement is the fifth one down in the Pop Culture section.)
