If dodging aliens hiding in suspicious Japanese clouds isn’t enough, scientists now believe Australia has a massive super ocean sink hole which could cause catastrophic earthquakes and tsunamis. Goddammit does that mean I have to hang my washing up higher? The so called “tear” in the sea bed is 7 km deep and just north of Australia. Scientists are now calling it the biggest fault on the planet. …nice one.
A tsunami warning has been declared along the coast of Chile after a 8.3 earthquake struck 95km west of Iquique, a little while ago.
When South Korea rattles from a 4.9 magnitude quake the world friggin panics . Seems everyone is questioning whether the quake was set off by North Korea messing with nuclear bombs. Damn you Mayans and damn you double, Kim Jong Un!!!!
It’s a bitch being a scientist in Italy. An Italian court has sentenced 6 of them (plus a government official) to 6 years jail for failing to predict the L’Aquila earthquake of 2009 which killed 300 people. The group were all members of the National Commission for the Forecast and Prevention of Major Risks whose job it was to keep an eye on earthquake dangers and keep the city informed. Sheez, who knew those low level tremors would lead to a 6.3 shaker. Anywho, on the bright side I hear there are 7 new positions vacant.
