I was actually on Datalounge, eating lunch yesterday when my house in Ohio started wiggling for about 15 seconds. I thought it was a sudden wind squall, but then noticed the trees weren't blowing at all.
Did you feel it?
That was just Wynonna, pounding on the door of the Golden Corral so it would open early.
your entire geographic region is eventually going to be destroyed INTENTIONALLY by fracking.
Please protest this and demand that it be stopped.
The recent earthquakes in Beverly Hills haave all been caused by fracking -- even the wealthy aren't safe.
fracking is evil
Fracking is totally safe! Hey did you guys hear about Elmo?!
They've been predicting the big New Madrid quake for years,supposedly it's long overdue to happen.
Hmmm ... maybe God wants them to secede, too.
What's the New Madrid, r7? I presume it's an earthquake fault line but where is it located?
I got this off Wikipedia.In a report filed in November 2008, The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency warned that a serious earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone could result in "the highest economic losses due to a natural disaster in the United States," further predicting "widespread and catastrophic" damage across Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and particularly Tennessee, where a 7.7 magnitude quake or greater would cause damage to tens of thousands of structures affecting water distribution, transportation systems, and other vital infrastructure. The earthquake is expected to also result in many thousands of fatalities, with more than 4,000 of the fatalities expected in Memphis alone.
Holy shit, Batman. That's some scary stuff, r10. Perhaps those wacky Mayan's were right after all.
Haha, R10. All red states!
Bye bye wacko nutjob repig freaks!
No need to secede - you'll just fall into the New Madrid fault. PROBLEM SOLVED!
Most importantly, stress the first syllable of Madrid - MAD' rid.
I live in western Kentucky so we've been hearing about this looming disaster forever.
