    Explain to us stupid peons: what are we supposed to be looking at that makes it earthquake-resistant? =)

    I like the Half-Life 2 vibe with the colour scheme.
    How to tell the difference between Machine Learning and AI:
    If it is written in Python it is most likely Machine Learning.
    If it is written in PowerPoint it is most likely AI.

    Metal wobbly frame with bracing to give it an upper wobble-limit

    Crossbeams maybe? Otherwise looks pretty normal to me.

    I'm going to guess the way the cross bracing is anchored makes the frame of the building really flexible. It flexes vs breaks from being too rigid in a shaker. The big problem with brick or non-reinforced concrete or something is it just all gives way under a shaker.

    I was in a tall hotel in Tokyo during a 6.5 once. it just creaked a bit and flexed. Weird, but none of the staff looked worried at all.

    I'm just glad at least some people there are taking New Madrid seriously.

    Not earthquake proof, but it has built in troll protection

    A more realistic short-term threat than Yellowstone but hardly anyone knows about it.
