Oh dude so sad.TODAY’S CATASTROPHIC EARTHQUAKE: Hmm, any Major Nations overdue for a punishing temblor? China, maybe? Very big country, lots of people, not really smacked down by the 2010 Parade of Death Quakes. So, China it is: “At least 300 people have died and others are trapped under rubble after a magnitude-6.9 earthquake struck China’s Qinghai province.” UGH this planet. [BBC News]

    I’d say, “ahhhh, Armageddon!” or “where is that family that moved from Haiti to Chile living now?” but they all seem so overplayed by now.

  • Cape Clod

    I’m starting to become nervous that the volcanos are going to feel jealous of all the attention the earthquakes are getting.

  • Numbat Dundee

    Isn’t Yellowstone overdue to wipe out the US or something?

    [re=555704]Cape Clod[/re]: Will no one think of poor Eyjafjallajokull glacier, being volcanoed apart in iceland?

    [re=555712]Numbat Dundee[/re]: Yes. But with any luck, it’ll just take out Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma. (Fer Starters)…

    At least 300 people have died, thinning China’s population to a scant 50 dodecatrillion.

    So when is California going to slide into the ocean? I’ve been waiting for years now.

    Quake frequencies normal, scientists say. It’s all part of the celestial game of ‘See Who Can Kill the Most People’ that’s been going on for millennia.

    Cuing Pat Roberts saying something stupid in 3. . 2. . 1. .

  • Barcode of the Apocalypse

    [re=555714]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Haha! Minnesota — volcano- and earthquake-free! Now if someone could just do something about all these damn Illuminati loitering around, muttering about their “re-wilding” plans!

  • JMP

    Eh, a 6.9 isn’t even considered a major earthquake by geologists. Now, .1 higher would be; but it’s not quite there yet!

    [re=555725]TGY[/re]: I think “people” still has the overwhelming lead in that contest.

  • Work in Progress

    Clearly “The Core” was a documentary and not an awful sci-fi movie.

  • GoinGreen

    I think it is God punishing us for the Jews and Freemasons – cause you just know there are a lot of both hanging around in China, Chile and Haiti. Can I get an amen??!!

    [re=555704]Cape Clod[/re]: “REYKJAVIK, Iceland – A volcano under a glacier in Iceland erupted Wednesday for the second time in less than a month, melting ice, shooting smoke and steam into the air, closing a major road and forcing hundreds of people to flee rising floodwaters.”

  • Maxine of Arc

    [re=555739]JMP[/re]: In fairness to geologists, an increase of .1 in their ridiculous logarithmic scale describes an earthquake almost twice as powerful.

  • doxastic

    I blame the Large Hadron Collider.

  • Failed 2 Menace

    Proving yet again that despite its many naysayers, the scientific consensus on Global Shaking is sound.

  • JMP

    [re=555770]Maxine of Arc[/re]: Is that how it works? I know a one point increase is ten times as strong, but was never sure how exactly the decimals worked with that.

  • assistant/atlas

    I think if stopped teaching our childrens about plate tectonics, God wouldn’t punish us in this way anymore.

    “Luxembourg is next to go
    And who knows, maybe Monaco–
    We’ll try to stay serene and calm
    When Alabama gets The Bomb”

    Venus doesn’t have plates or tectonics. It does have 900 degree sulfur dioxide raining down — but with a little stimulus money, that can be fixed. I’m just sayin.

  • slappypaddy

    [re=555739]JMP[/re]: it’s a major earthquake if you die in it (not you, personally).

  • Accordion-o-rama

    [re=555722]Diana Davies[/re]: Me too. I love a water slide.

    Hey Barcode! 612 in the hizzy! But just so’s ya know, if El Caldera goes off, we’re one of the first-wave refugee towns, FYI.
