    I'm no expert, but I call BS too:

    "Correlation does not imply causation" is a phrase used in science and statistics to emphasize that correlation between two variables does not automatically imply that one causes the other.

    So, just because B follows A, doesn't mean A causes B.

    But then again, perhaps he's right. icon_biggrin.gificon_eek.gif

    jprichva saidOf course it's nonsense.
    2012 is still 8-1/2 months away.

    I think this is actually really interesting. The San Andreas Fault is way overdue for a "major" quake according to the intervals that they regularly occur (45-144 years) there. The last one was in 1857.

    I'm not saying I agree that it'll happen tomorrow, but I do think it'll happen within our life time.

    Yes. Definately. An enormous earthquake will hit California.

    When exactly . . . is not predictable.

    As it happens, the only group of mainstream geologists who claim to seriously be working on earthquake prediction are the Japanese. Gee, look how that's working out icon_rolleyes.gif

    Anyway, San Andreas is a noisy bitch, but she spends her energy all the time, so she will never build up to a 9. Cascadia is the evil one. She just keeps quietly building and building. When she cuts loose, you will pay attention.

    Named for an semi-artificial lake that lies along the fault. The valley naturally collected water (and then later expanded) because it forms a low point along the fault between the two plates, and named by the Spanish long before they knew about the fault -- Andrew Lawson who identified the fault apprently in 1895 named it for the area which already had the name San Andreas.

    Well, he was close.
    I just felt a little jolt (March 18, 2011).
    Or, maybe that's the precursor to the big one, tomorrow.

    You sure what you heard/felt wasn't the sound my cock made when I took it out of my jeans after viewing your profile photos? So DAMN hot! icon_razz.gif

    The most worrisome is the Hayward fault it extends North from San Pablo, then through Richmond, Berkley (the fault runs underneath the UC Berkely Memorial Stadium), then through Oakland, San Leandro, Hayward, Union City, Fremont, Milipitas, and close to San Jose, CA. The majority of the East Bay transportation corridors including the 580, 880, 238 highways would be impacted. It is expected that the fault is due to rupture and would be at least in magnitude 7.0 or higher. Additionally, BART runs through this major corridor.... transporting passengers from Downtown San Francisco to the East Bay. As you can imagine the impact would be enormous, especially in rush hour or evening hour commute. I can not even imagine the destruction that will occur not to mention the loss of life. I am already planning to have emergency provision for at least 3 days in my area.

    I heard that the current scientifically calculated odds of a 7+ quake in California is 85% by the year 2023.

    No, I think God is pissed at Westboro Baptist and this is his way of getting back at them--he creates earthquakes on the coasts, keeping them in Kansas, which is torturous by itself.


    My logic is undeniable.

    jprichva saidI've always wondered about that. Why is it San Andreas' fault? Did he piss someone off?


    ...no..San Andreas didn't piss someone off...he just cracked them up

    Before the big 9.0 off of Japan, there were 13 notable earthquakes leading up to the big one, starting 2 days prior. http://neic.usgs.gov/neis/qed/ And there have been 14 aftershocks since.

    Read this and stop trying to guess (or believe others' guesses about) when earthquakes will happen. It's enlightening and will make all of you laugh at your previous statements.

    One minute on the timeout step for each year of your life for that.

    you made me snort my coffee.
