Epicentre

Recommended Posts

It is driving me to distraction.

Epi- means surface. So, the epicentre is the location on the surface of an event occuring above or below that point.

And, as for "global pandemic'! What has become of Radio 4.

Indeed - the epicentre of an earthquake being the point on the Earth's surface closest to the hypocentre or focus of the earthquake.

Most of the time in the papers you will see the hypocentre incorrectly labelled as the epicentre, but given all the other stuff they get wrong that's fairly trivial.

You would be witty if you didn't have to keep relying on taking the pee out of me for your laughs.  Anyone can do that pet.

U-turn is a particular type of turn so I can understand ...

*** segue ****


if you want to freak out on the road.. go to Melbourne and you’ll learn about hook turns. I fear the day I use one of those intersections in Melbourne. People from interstate can be seen on the footpath just watching it in action.

This is a Melbourne hook turn sign.

U turn being the current media favourite for any change in direction, however slight the deviation.

I can defiantly say that Radio 4 journalists should of done a better job in understanding the pandemic word. I aren't being a pedent, or clever, or anything like.
