Chile, the world's top copper producer

Will copper be the new copper again?

Generally, a magnitude earthquake is a problem.

Major 7.1 magnitude earthquake hits Chile

Those are much worse than minor 7.1 magnitude earthquakes.

Chile, the Lindsay Lohan of the world.

What? No one is paying attention to me?

Ok, huge earthquake.

What, no one is paying attention anymore?

Trap some miners and say they won't be out until Christmas.

What, people forgot about the miners? Bring them out early.

Ok, people have forgot about us again. Lets start the cycle anew.

May 21 - Jan 1 = 140 days.

That's not a lot of time for all the rest of the plagues.

Hey, how does that "hold F11" joke go again? I know it has something to do with earthquakes, and someone always brings it up and goes "lol" so it's pretty hysterical.

Earthquakes are just the physical manifestation of what happened when Obama raised everyone's taxes. This one was a particularly galling tax increase.

In other news, the water has receded from California beaches, in what locals are calling a freak low tide.

A Chilean miner quake?

Chile, the world's top copper producer, has seen its economy surge on heavy spending to rebuild cities ravaged by the February quake and record prices for its main export.

So what the U.S. needs is a disaster to wipe out a major city and to increase production of Jersey Shore and the economy will be OK then, right?

Don't forget to watch out for that dangerous lightning too.

Quick! Someone set up a lucrative and elaborate
foundation that predates on empathy and compassion
with a dash of new years guilt.

Those trapped miners must have delved too deeply and/or greedily.

Sometimes I wonder if 7.1 is just enough or too much.

Someone needs to tell these people that they are only allowed one big natural disaster in a two year time period.

Otherwise they are hogging all the news resources and insincere celebrity concern.

Subby's wrong. Jerry Lee Lewis would only shake for a minor.

True, but the more minor she is, the more major the shake.
