Well, the Crown is a very good omen indeed – the whole story is there in the rocks, if we’re patient and clever enough to read it. The question is whether observed liquefaction features were generated in a single impact, or over the course of many earthquakes. Detailed stratigraphy, in particular as regards unconformities, will be important – and iTunes claims that others are interested in the question (“En At Tygge På” = “one to chew on”). Or perhaps it’s just the psychic influence of our resident Impact Guy.
The Outcome is a song about a farmer’s daughter who sleeps with a passing beggar, and is “quite undone”. There are layers and omens and portents here I don’t understand, but I’m going to call it as ambiguously in favor of seismogenic liquefaction.
