I remember many years ago houses exploded because they were built on a land fill. They learned to put methane pipes into the ground to drain off the pressure, but what a way to go. I remember that town in Wisconsin that was just wiped out in the 80's. Hurricanes, volcanoes, tornadoes, terrorism, random violence, land fill explosions and now sink holes!
We know we're going to die, but we don't know when. There's no time like the present to put our house in order.
