The earth is telling everyone "Hey, stop poking me!" Heh, kind of interesting all the earthquakes recently. When Oklahoma, USA has an Earthquake - something is definitely off. Absolutely no fault lines.

Yes, certainly lots of earthquakes in all corners of the world. And no sign of Sharon Stone to give us her opinions or comments.

So now we have South America, Central, and Europe/Africa.... here's hoping no massive quakes in Asia/Oceania are around the corner.

Its all the fault of global warming... Ah, wait that was proven fake. Hmm, lets scare up some new theory this time about earthquakes... Heh, sounds like one of the typical hysterics move.

How about we start a conspiracy that it is all caused by drilling for oil? All those holes in the ground and all that oil extracted, has a certain mad logic to it. A year from now the tin foil hats will be believing every word of it and as usual pointing the finger of responsibility at the US.

No I am not heartless and yes I am being flippant, it is not lack of feeling for the dead and injured, it is what I would expect from others if my house fell in on me. There are just too many “big ones” of late and the planet really isn’t as big as we like to think, not when it comes to earthquakes. Maybe our turn is closer than we want to think about, so be flippant while you can because that might not be a heavy vehicle passing the house.

Ooh, that is a good one. I like it. Yes, its Big Oil's fault!

I of course am being flippant. I hear too much of this kind of stuff lately. It really irritates me seeing intelligent people buying into conspiracy theories, and unsupported pseudo-scientific nonsense.
