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

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.

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?

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

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.
