Haha, i also used to play this game in Taitung when i was waiting at traffic lights: 'What will i do if a tsunami hits right now? Climb up that pole and try to scramble onto that balcony? Try to drive out of it?'

Looking at the wikipedia table below, it appears last year may have been slightly above average in terms of overall earthquakes though probably not the Armageddon we warned of when the articles came out saying that a slowing of the earth's revolution speed would cause an upsurge in activity.

Did seem to be a lot of volcanoes erupting though. There were 77 eruptions from 71 volcanoes, including 36 'new' eruptions that started during the year.

Apparently there are about 1500 active volcanoes on earth of which about 50 erupt each year https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2018/12/photos-2018-the-year-in-volcanic-activity/578...
