Well thanks for the 5th grade science lesson there.

Earthquakes are a mystery so let's thank Gizmodo for stepping up to the plate to explain what's shaking.

That reads like an elementary school wikipedia

Jizzmodo: It's estimated that 500,000 earthquakes occur every year-of which about 100,00 can be felt. The rest are too small, too deep, or to remote to register. But the big, nasty quakes occur far less often, and scientists can predict that roughly ten times as many earthquakes larger than magnitude 4 occur in a particular time period than earthquakes larger than magnitude 5. But that's just an approximation: Some years are worse than others.

Wiki (Earthquake): It is estimated that around 500,000 earthquakes occur each year, detectable with current instrumentation. About 100,000 of these can be felt.[28][29] Minor earthquakes occur nearly constantly around the world....Larger earthquakes occur less frequently, the relationship being exponential; for example, roughly ten times as many earthquakes larger than magnitude 4 occur in a particular time period than earthquakes larger than magnitude 5.

Yep

Yeah, that's just what they WANT you to believe. Those f*cking scientists.

FTA: "Or a huge tsunami sweeping though your town?"

If a tsunami makes it all the way to where I am, then something really, really bad just happened and the tsunami is the least of our worries.

I'm not sure if you did something there, but if you did, I see what it was.

Who isn't afraid of being waken abruptly by a shaking building whose roof is caving in?

Me and every other California native.

Aren't they caused by praying too much? Or too little?

Or something.

I don't think that's quite true, although I too, usually enjoy the earthquake, and when I haven't been in California for awhile, even miss them.

Still, the oodles of destruction I saw as a kid in 71, and that I know are going to be unleashed when the Hayward fault goes, gives me pause.

There's nothing to fear, don't worry, be happy, go shopping. True there are more and stronger earthquakes of late but it's nothing to concern you.

Monday's quake was 19th this year in India (new window)

"New Delhi: Monday's earthquake that shook the capital and certain areas in its neighbouring states of Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh was the 19th tremor in the country this year so far and third in the past five days."

6.1-magnitude earthquake hits Argentina (new window)

"A 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck at a depth of 341 miles near Santiago del Estero, Argentina, Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage"


Five-magnitude earthquake strikes off Kamchatka Peninsula (new window)

"A 4.5-magnitutude earthquake has struck off Kamchatka's east coast in the Avacha Bay. There was no destruction, casualties or a threat of tsunami."

Strong quake hits New Caledonia, no tsunami alert (new window)

"The quake struck 260 kilometres east-southeast of the town of Tadine on the island of Mare at 11:19 pm (local time) at a relatively shallow depth of 15 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said."

Five small earthquakes felt on Islay (new window)

"The British Geological Survey recorded the strongest at a magnitude of 2.8. A spokeswoman said there were no reports of any damage."


Record year for Oklahoma earthquakes (new window)

"Oklahoma Geological Survey Seismologist, Austin Holland says it's uncommon to see the number of earthquakes jump so drastically.

"It's a little unusual, to see this large uptick, some of that is due to the fact we have more seismic instruments in the state, so the more you listen, the more you're gonna hear," Holland said."



I'm not even going to mention the volcanos.

Hold down the F11 key when your browser is the selected window. Keep holding it down.

I'm listening to Sigue Sigue Sputnik so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.
