I really miss you, darlin'.

                                 <Pause.> God, I've been working my ass off

      that slide in opposite directions along their adjacent sides.

      Strike-slip fault: A fault in which two sections of rock have
      moved horizontally in opposite directions, parallel to the
      line of the fracture that divided them.

I love you.

                                 <Pause.> Yeahyoutoobye.

      changes. Heat, pressure, or a chemical reaction may cause such changes. 

Sigh. <Click.>


      Shock metamorphism: The metamorphism that results when a
      meteorite strikes rocks at the Earth's surface. The meteoric
      impact generates tremendous pressure and extremely high
      temperatures that cause minerals to shatter and recrystallize,
      producing new minerals which cannot arise under any other
