Physicists find way to hide buildings from earthquakes

Basically, it involves fitting a series of concentric plastic rings into the earth around a building. The surface wave would then hit these and be directed around and away from the shielded structure by the curved barriers.

Which then presumably might then hit other buildings, causing them to crumble, which in turn could create a mighty cascade of lawsuits. Or maybe we’ll have dueling concentric plastic rings aiming earthquake waves at each others buildings. Hmm.
