Skip to comments.Scientists Are Dropping Explosives Around Mount St. Helens, Probably Scaring Bigfoots Away

If you're planning to go hiking or Bigfooting in Helens sometime in the next couple of weeks, we suggest you stay away from locations where these 70 something passive seismic stations are located. Scientists are planning to set off a bunch of explosives all around the volcano to learn more about it and get a detailed map of what the volcano looks like 50 miles below the surface. According to Gizmodo:
The explosions are part of a research project called iMUSH, or Imaging Magma Under St. Helens. As Nature reports, the project staff will be hiking through the mountain to set up for the experiment this coming week: "They will drill 24 holes some 25 metres deep, drop in industrial explosives used for quarrying, and refill the holes...The plan is to detonate the explosives in separate shots over four nights. Each blast will shake the ground as much as a magnitude-2 earthquake." The movement of these shock waves through the Earth will let geologists map the underground chambers of the volcano.

Bigfoots? Bigfeet? Big......nevermind.
“Multiple Bigfoot”? That is more that likely what my English professor would say.
Bombing a volcano.
Because what could possibly go wrong?
“Bombing a volcano....that was active as far back as the 1980’s.....Because what could possibly go wrong?”
——there fixed it!!

quote of the day.....don’t know if you want to ad this one to the napl list....but hey....this article is beyond belief.
“Night of the Grizzles” happened in Montana I think
Anyone know if Moochelle has been camping hear Mt. St. Helens in the past week? (sorry I could not resist)
Anyone suggest it?
“Probably” scaring Bigfoot away?
I guess to liberals, the probably means the science is settled and the debate is over. On to raising taxes to protect Bigfoot.

Don’t worry - the Sasquatches won’t be scared by the explosions since they don’t actually exist. That is all.
Every morning I stand on my front porch and wave a stalk of celery to keep elephants away. How do I know it works? Because I don't see any elephants in my yard.

The passive sensors are where the vibrations from the explosions are detected, not where the explosives are placed. Duh! That's a place where it will take very sensitive instruments to detect any vibrations... unless the author is saying that's where all the biggest will congregate for safety from the explosions.
And everything from Colorado westward has to be declared the Megapod Reserve and people removed from the countryside. Well, except for Vaio and Aspen... Liberal ski resorts don't bother bigfeet.
Who knows, she does love to take vacations. Correct me, I vaguely recall there was a Bigfoot sighting in Aspen and lo’ behold Moochelle just happen to been vacationing there. So who knows where she is right now.
I know for a fact that Bigfoot exists. The aliens told me so on our way to meet with the loch Ness monster.
What could possibly go wrong?
BigFoot gathers up the explosives and drops ‘em down the piehole of St. Helens?
JellySTone cauldera erupts as a result of back pressure..
What could possibly go wrong?
Yep, I loved that book. It was fascinating the circumstances that were the perfect storm that night. Glacier Natl Park in Montana.
“The passive sensors are where the vibrations from the explosions are detected, not where the explosives are placed. Duh! ......”
I have to ask. If anyone is doing explosions up there would they not forbid any hikers from entering? Or is that just me? Then again there are some tree huggers who would go out anyway, I guess.
"Last week, Japanese scientists "explaced"... placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness... to blow Nessie out of the water."
The article said "Each blast will shake the ground as much as a magnitude-2 earthquake". Wikipedia says that a magnitude 2 earthquake has the energy equal to 15 kilograms of TNT, so I doubt they have to clear out the entire mountain, just the area around the detonations.
Is that a picture of Nessie?
