Each year the North American and Eurasian plates are moving apart at around 2cm pa (and moving in shear as well), with a resultant upwelling of magma.

    ... for a caffeine fix. So I gave up on the detox and got a box of imported British tea, which has eliminated the need for Tylenol. I also tried some 'Sirius' Icelandic chocolate, and that is the only thing that has disappointed. In a pinch, it will do, but I don't think I will be rushing out to buy it again.
