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.

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?

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.

On average there's over 100 magnitude 6.0-6.9 earthquakes recorded every year, about 20 7-7.9 magnitude, and 8.0+ about once every 5 years. A 7.0+ is generally considered a major earthquake. If there is a 7.0 or bigger on that date I might somewhat start to believe it.
Here's a list of recent quakes http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak...quakes_all.php

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.

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?

|Donutz||Don't know anything about this guy, but as a general rule this is how frauds and quacks use chance to their advantage. Earthquakes happen almost every day somewhere on Earth. Just redefine "big" to include whatever happens on 9/27 and viola! You're a swami!|

|Qball||Okay Nostradamus. Who the hell laughs when a disastrous earthquake hits?|

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.....
