(The Nation)   A while back we sent California thousands of Okies. Now they seem to be returning the favor with thousands of earthquakes. Thanks for that   (thenation.com) divider line 11

Well, here's the silver lining. If there's an earthquake, relief organizations will ship in bottled water, which residents will need because fracking farked up their drinking water supply.

SansNeural: From the Oklahoma Geological Survey, here's an interesting chart I made:

Year    Number of quakes
2003    48
2004    66
2005    22
2006    22
2007    30
2008    25
2009    51
2010    1062
2011    1471
2012    981
2013    2848
2014    1133 as of March 27

Gee, I wonder if it correlates with the number of drilling permits issued... I haven't yet found a database with an annual breakdown of permits over the years, though.


that or the increase of obese people in the state

To all of you blaming fracking, I believe the fracking companies have said that they aren't responsible for earthquakes, so that should be the end of that nonsense talk.

The earthquakes are because Jesus is mad at them for opposing gay marriage.

Oklahoma has wee little earthquakes that you can't feel unless you are right up close. I'm more concerned with all the Californian moving back.

This is another self correcting problem.

Tornado appears and Okies go into the under ground tornado shelter.

While there an earthquake occurs that collapses the shelter.

No more Okies, so no one to worry about the earthquakes any more.

Drill baby, DRILL!!

Real Women Drink Akvavit: SansNeural: svanmeter: The term "Okie" is still considered offensive to many people in California (but is celebrated by others). I should think that FARK staff should be more careful about re-printing headlines that are considered offensive or insensitive. By the way, the headline says Whites may now be a minority in California.

Please try to be more sensitive to minorities.

Serious?

I've never lived in California, but I've been perfectly happy to call myself an Okie all my life.

One of my mom's first buddies when she moved to the US was originally from Oklahoma. She calls the Californians in her family the "prune pickers" and the Oklahomans "cotton pickers". She was an older lady (just died a couple years ago) and came out to Cali during the depression, so I'm sure it meant something back then. No clue what it means now.

BTW, could you please speak to your tornadoes? They seem to be lost. They were right near my house yesterday and did some damage to a couple houses a few miles away. One even ripped one guy's solar panels clean off his roof and everything. It was really scary. :'-(


So *that's* where they've been.  I'll see what I can to - maybe disguise my storm shelter as a shed or something, see if they'll come home.

Man if only Lex Luthor knew about fracking. He would not have needed to steal a nuke all he would have had to do is create a big old fracking drill site to cause a massive 15.8 earth quake and drop California off into the sea.
