You might be tempted to bleat out some rational scientific reason. But wait! Don’t make up your mind until you hear all the evidence.
Boobs did it
Originally Boobquake began as an Facebook page started by Jennifer McCreight, a self-described “geeky, perverted atheist feminist” (and obviously my non-genetic twin) who was disgusted at the comments made in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake of 2010. Muslim cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, stated:
Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupting their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.
In order to test the assertion that cleavage in women leads to cleavage in the earth, McCreight started her FB/Twitter campaign:
I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that’s your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I’m sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn’t rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it’ll be one involving plate tectonics.
So, who’s with me? I may be a D cup, but that will probably only produce a slight tremor on its own.
This was in April of 2010. Fast forward to almost a year later, and we have an earthquake of enormous magnitude in Japan. Can we blame the boobs? After all, almost 100k people “like” the Boobquake page on FB.
I speculate that the tipping point for the tectonic influence of tata’s was achieved when China released this product:
God did it
Hey- it is as reasonable and explanation as the one offered up by this self-righteous little twat who wants to give all the credit to God, who she ironically refers to as “good and loving”.
They did it to themselves
But wait- could it be that Japan’s earthquake is really just karmic payback for Pearl Harbor? This looney bunch of hate-filled douchetards think so. Please report their FB group so it gets shut down!
