schmitty34 Well, there weren't any big earthquakes yesterday...which is a good thing.

As a result, I punched my coworker in the face and called him a bad name for freaking me out and forcing me to build a bomb shelter, hoard fire arms and take my kids out of school in preparation for the giant earthquake that was going to cause Mt. Rainier to erupt and wipe the entire PNW off the map.

CheeseForSteeze It's quite all obviously there result of global warming. Human induced global warming. Wait, it's human induced global climate change.

Donutz Oh, I agree. If there's a legitimately big one on that day, it's time to start muttering 'WTF'. Thing is, the gravitational effect from an asteroid at that distance would be less than from a mouse on the ground, so we'd have to start thinking 'sixth force' or some such. The next question would be - is it just this asteroid, or all asteroids? If it's just this asteroid, time for a space mission to collect the alien technology.

This (probably not novel) script idea copyright ME. You listening, Hollywood?

Look at you doing some research! I didn't realize there were so many earthquakes each day.

The three earthquakes were something like 9+, 8+, and 7+ so yeah, I think you could only consider 9/27 a "match" if it was another big one in at least the 7-8 range.

ha, ha, totally true, but this guy isn't trying to make any big claim or anything, I just thought it was interesting. After seeing the earthquake thread in this section it just made me think of it so I posted it here.

This guy is just a "normal dude" that is smart and kind of nerdy so he spends his time reaserching and analyzing things that interest him like tax revenue and space....I don't know

2 of the 3 earthquakes were historically big (Chile and Japan) and the one in NZ was pretty big as well. So it's either a crazy coincidence or there is something to it.

Okay, back to being serious....obviously he, or I, won't be laughing.

I'm actually interested in seeing if it actually happens. It's either a crazy coincidence that all three earthquakes happened when the asteroid is lined up, or there is something to it. I don't pretend to understand any of this stuff, but I could see the gravitational pull of all three objects having some sort of effect on the plates in the earth's crust. Who knows?

Still, no foil hat. I think he uses the excessive amout of hair product for that.

But when there's a big earthquake on 9/27, he'll be the one laughing.....
