Make like a banana

and split.

I live in a place. It’s visible on this map, pretty much. Because of my home’s proximity to Lake Michigan, I can find my hometown almost instantly, even in pictures taken from space. It’s bad enough I have to worry about things like failing infrastructure, sale of ground water to international food conglomerates, and the possibility of Line 5 busting open underwater somewhere, now I find out that the entire planet is looming in the quakey shadows of my tectonic neighborhood. And don’t think I’ve forgotten about Yosemite.
