Maybe the sea-level will eventually rise enough to submerge San Francisco and Oakland. Mother Nature has a way of dealing with decay.

Snazzy, it can't happen soon enough. Just think of all those poor people that paid big bucks for oceanfront property...wonder how long it will be before they are looking for their FEMA checks.
This is what happens when you build too close to the ocean or bring in fill dirt to cover what were once tidal areas. You can't fool mother nature......

Yeah, and I can't wait to get a load of all the Island people around the world who were stupid enough to settle on an Island, or the people in Venice, or the people in New Jersey, or New York, or New Orleans, or Florida. They're all so stupid. And the really stupid ones are all the scientists who are ranting about global warming, an increase in storm intensity, and the rising of oceans. What a laugh! All people like me and Snazzy and marty can do is laugh at their misery. Ha-ha-ha.

Is it true that they are calling the tides 'Queen tides' in S.F?
