Did the earth move...for you?

Check this landslide video out!

(Update [Thursday p.m.] - my tovarische over at Walternatives reminds me (spasiba!) to identify this thing. All I know is that it's somewhere in Japan, and it's a massive translational landslide - probably a bedding plane slide, and obviously one that had been moving slowly for a while - notice the jersey barriers are in place. This is not unusual, and for the Japanese it might even qualify as business as usual - the place is packed with landslides!)

But the bottom line is - geology is still just too freaking cool.
