    If anyone tries to blame global warming for these undersea quakes, I'm gonna smack 'em.

    Lz0,

    You forgot the story about Bush ordering a nuclear detonation to trigger the quake. ;)

    Holy S**t :eek: that's a lot of tremors (good movie as-well).

    And just a week away from Winter Quarter Finals at that.

    Hope none of these small quakes means that there will be bigger quakes closer to shore.

    I think that in the news here (as in washington state) there was a small quake inland a few days to a week ago.

    Thanks for the news report everyone.

    There was a guy who was rather accurate with earthquake predictions, his predictions were based on the alignment of the planets -- and the stress this will cause on the Earth's crust.

    I wonder if we're in a period where the Earth is stressed and ringing like a bell at the moment.

    Sun Baked,

    You forgot the part where you considered all serious possibilities. Like the one proposed in the story posted by Lz0. ;)

    Yes, Little Green Men. And I blame the overzealous military-industrial complex, as well as violent rap and video games, for you hitting me.

    Something bigger on the way???

    In the last two weeks we've had two very small (2.5ish) earth tremors reported in Southwestern Ontario, not too far from Detroit. We almost never have such tremors here. I'm no geologist, but if I was watching a bad disaster movie I'd expect this sort of thing to foreshadow The Big One.

    OK, let me try...

    Well they do use sonic waves to clean jewelery and vehicle parts.

    So somebody can cobble together a huge sonic cannon which should be able to clean up the Arizona and Nevada beachfront property of all that California waste.

    ;)

    At least this hasn't caused another Tsunami. Hopefully scientists will gain some useful knowledge from these undersea quakes.
