Tolkien had the right idea. ...
Why bother when we already have cockroaches?

They evolved to perfection ~600,000,000 years ago and haven't changed since (as the world changed around them). :)

Gotta love that: As though we could actually do something about Earthquakes, Lex Luthor nothwithstanding.
Well, we can't prevent earthquakes, but we can design buildings and structures that can survive an earthquake without collapsing. That's something.
