Book related: Read somewhere that the Rock of Gibraltar is at risk of hiving off a great slab, and that if that happens it'll cause tidal waves to strike the eastern seaboard of the US. Anyone know where to find info on this? Google turns up zip. Thought I read it in "The World Without Us" but can't find a ref in the glossary. Apparently geologists have been petitioning govts to address the issue for a while. Anyone?

I did some digging, found this:

Also, a lot of mystical crap.

A quick google suggests The Rock is made of limestone and, not that I am an expert, but that's a substance that is more likely to weather, crack or erode than plunge into the sea as a solid mass.

Super hilarious:
When googling for some info "will the Rock of Gibraltar collapse" I found Twilight fanfic. With eye-fucking?
