When I lived in San Francisco, I sometimes found myself wondering whether I was more likely to be swallowed by the earth or crushed by rubble when the Big One strikes, so in May 2010, I traced a huge PDF map from the California Department of Conversation showing San Francisco's seismic hazard zones into Google Earth. (The original PDF link has since gone dead; the California Earthquake Hazards Zone Application) may be its replacement.)
I imported the areas at risk of liquefaction and landslides into Google Maps, but the landslide map got split across several pages (and seems to have since disappeared?), so you may just want to download the KMZ file and view it in Google Earth instead.
The original release of the first game in Capcom's Resident Evil franchise featured gloriously awful spoken dialogue. I'm not sure if it was the Japanese production team's shaky grasp of the English language or the Canadian-sounding voice actors' odd placement of emphasis, but something about it kept me laughing through the whole game.
