Oh?

Hawaii is moving toward Japan 4 inches every year. 

I thought islands in the ocean were tops of mountains. No?

the mountains are moving too. i read about this once and i think it was because of the ocean floor being subducted back into some really deep trench in the middle of the pacific.

Yikes! I wish I didn't know that!! I'm seriously scared of those trenches! Weird, I know but thank goodness I can avoid them ... unless I'm on an island that gets sucked into one. Now I can't put off going to Hawaii. Guam was already off the list and no big loss.
