Boobquake: I’m disappointed…yet pleased.
When I heard about the idea of Boobquake, I thought it was a brilliant idea. I enjoy seeing the women in nice revealing outfits like every other man. Making all women wear these outfits all at once is even a smarter idea.
Boobquake was formed when an Iranian cleric claimed that revealing clothing on women caused earthquakes. Yeah, okay. Anyway, a Purdue University female student started a world wide organization call Boobquake. It is a holiday of sorts when women can wear revealing clothes in order to find out if an actual Earthquake happens when that much exposed female flesh is out in the open.
Sadly, there has been an earthquake. From AP news, ((TAIPEI, Taiwan – An earthquake struck off the southeast coast of Taiwan on Monday, causing buildings to sway briefly but no casualties or damage. The temblor was felt at the site of a massive landslide in northern Taiwan but did not hamper rescue efforts.
The 6.5-magnitude quake hit at 10:59 a.m. (0259 GMT), 195 miles (295 kilometers) off the southern Taiwan city of Taitung at a depth of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers), the U.S. Geological Survey said. The agency's initial report had put the quake's magnitude at 6.9.))
Oops, did Boobquake do that?
Well given that the entire world is in a state of flux with the landmasses moving, there’s always going to be minor earthquakes. Earthquakes happen all the time. I could say farting out in public can cause earthquakes and prove that an earthquake happened when someone let a big one out.
So, yeah, an earthquake did happen, but it wasn't the boobs that did.
From Wiki, ((An earthquake (also known as a quake, tremor, temblor or seismic activity) is the result of a sudden release of energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves. Earthquakes are recorded with a seismometer, also known as a seismograph. The moment magnitude (or the related and mostly obsolete Richter magnitude) of an earthquake is conventionally reported, with magnitude 3 or lower earthquakes being mostly imperceptible and magnitude 7 causing serious damage over large areas. Intensity of shaking is measured on the modified Mercalli scale. ))
I see nothing about boobs or revealing outfits.
In the words of Dr. McCoy, “No body is perfect, Mr. Spock.”
Side Note: Because it is dreary and cold outside, I didn't see any of the celebrations of boobquake.
