image for Newest Disaster Discovered

The International Council for Useless Panic have found and registered the latest potential disaster that may hit the planet.

They have reached an early state of "Highly Concerned" but not yet full "Panic Stations" over continental drift.

In the words of a spokesperson: "People just don't appreciate yet how serious continental drift can become. You fall asleep in one country and a few million years later you wake up in another. Not only that but you could wake up on a mountain that wasn't even there when you dozed off. The very ground under our feet is moving all the time, back and forth, up and down. It's about time that governments acted and put a stop to all this uncertainty.

"The damage to the atlas and road map industry alone will be catastrophic, no where will be stable until this random wandering is halted or controlled."

The Council advised that the use of a number of nails 5,000 miles long could possibly halt the continents drifting around and at the cost of only 200 trillion trillion trillion dollars they would draw up the plans straight away.

When questioned about the reason for issuing this alert the Council answered that they had high hopes of this becoming as successful as the Global Warming theory and their getting in on the ground floor, so to speak, offered an opportunity for high financial return.
