I'm sure you did learn it in "high school". However, for people from different countries, levels of education, backgrounds, interests, and so on,
it might not be that others have come into contact with this concept.
Certainly when I did 'geography' at school we didn't learn about this particular aspect of earthquakes. In fact the one thing I remember most about
geography was glaciation, and ice ages - but that's because it interested me.
Additionally, earthquakes weren't something I was interested in back in school, so it might have been something I was taught, but don't remember.
Same with the OP.
Either way, the idea of quakes having corresponding aftershocks is fascinating to me these days, and something I'd love to know more about. If you
have any links you'd like to share, seeing as you seem to konw something of this topic, I would love to see.
