This quake will make headlines. We're overdue.

Here's a 7.1 that made headlines a few hours ago. No devastation though.


Yeah I referred to that one in the OP.
It happened about 3 hours prior to me coming up with this idea that we are overdue.
So I went and googled recent big quakes and found that one.

So you did. Oops.

Doesn't it double in energy or something like that each .1 it increases?
I won't cheat and look it up this time.
That's just what I vaguely remember.

Not exactly. It's a logarithmic scale. See here.


Thank you.
So it can be described in energy or amplitude.
Interesting. Good link.
I'll remember that.

also worth mentioning.....
the bible says sign of the last days is earth quakes in on place after another
so this would imply an escalation towards the end, as it is a sign, as opposed to a common occurrence

What if, instead of one place after another, they happen in one place before another?

I've been thinking the same lately, a rumble somewhere, a large one.

Hope not, but i do enjoy the occasion.

It's a logarithmic scale. A 8.0 packs almost 3 times as much energy as an 7.7. Either one (or a weaker one) in a population center, anywhere, is going to be a big deal.


Going purely by the odds, you have a fair chance. But are you going to claim an ocean spanning tsunami, even if the earthquake itself is not a big deal?


Well if a mega tsunami resulted and created a lot of noticeable destruction it should count if I win.
But I'd think a big tsunami is far more rare of an occurrence so I don't wanna burn out my luck here.
I'm going to avoid predicting a tsunami.

I think a mountainous region with landslides are much more common and therefore more likely.

Its how I remember the scripture. Who knows what the literal translation is. Either way we are toast.

I'm under the impression that we are, according to researchers who have looked into the seismological history, not necessarily experiencing an escalation. I'm pretty sure our current levels of activity (during the last decade) are fairly normal and average.

I could be wrong because I'm just going with some vague memories of older threads I've read around these parts.

Oh. Gee. That's boring then!! No doom porn here! Just someone predicting that something normal will happen again soon, LOL.

if that is quiet, with all those in one small country. i hate to think what you would call busy. to me it seems the ground has been rocking and rolling.

One thing I've really wanted to write about (and have been talking about a lot in real life) but haven't got around to it is a deep discussion about the Aether theories, all of the major experiments done to test it (like the Michelson–Morley experiment among many others), and then get into a Tesla/Steinmetz v Einstein debate about special relativity and luminiferous aether.

Also I'd include arguments of if Light is a particle-wave or if it is only a wave action in a substrate, which concepts explain things like Gravity better, why purple light spins the Crookes radiometer but red doesn't, etc etc.

I just don't know exactly where I want to go with that yet other than simply to share what I'm researching with others.

It is really a relative distinction if it's too quiet or not, I agree.

But quakes under 5, even in the dozens, is pretty normal Earth activity from what I understand.
There are a lot of very active regions, especially in the ring of fire.

Global scale awe-inspiring, or normal?

I think the OP is talking about common sense normal stuff by using math etc. Nothing outside of normal. Which is boring. Sorry to say, but it is what it is!! Yay for normalcy.

Well when you put it that way -
I refer you to my OP where I said "this is not an important thread".

Well, would a 9.2 off Cascadia along with a 42 foot tsunami be boring?

The stats are bearing down. Each day without one we are that much closer to the next. Chile's acting up. Could be there.

But lookout. A 5 pointer just hit right next to Krakatoa. I mean like almost in it. That can't be a good sign. Last time that went off, a tsunami wiped out a whole bunch of people.

Heheh. I don't mean to criticize, or downplay your OP. I just hate "normal". It's kinda a trend that I think I'm caught up in.

It's not just me tho.. Doom is the new in thing. People want mass change, not deaths etc per say, but things to drastically change as far as society goes. People are sick of working at supermarkets etc while realizing there has to be something more.. some other purpose. BUT, at the same time, trading that repetitive life for a life in say... North Korea, would be WAY worse.

Conclusion? Most people hate life. Some think that a Fallout 4 version of life would be better... at least then there might be a reason to live, even if it means growing a few more limbs and taking RAD pills.

Well at it's core it is most likely very mathematical, but it was inspired by intuition and a gut instinct.

The reason I was looking over various trends in Google searches is because I was curious to see what types of cycles various topics play out within, or if there is no actual cycle at all. Some topics look almost like a Heartbeat in their regularity, for instance "Jesus" always has a small spike at Christmas and a very large spike at Easter. This is totally normal and expected.

However other search terms do not follow any noticeable patterns at all.

So I started trying to weed out natural or calender repitional topics to gauge if certain terms which should not be cyclical are actually operating in mathematical patterns or not.

I was thinking "tornado seasons probably operate in cycles, hurricanes do, etc"
That's when it occurred to me that we are overdue for a big headline Earthquake.

And the weird thing about Earthquakes is that they DO operate in cycles in a very generalized sense - it's just that no one has figured out how to actually predict an Earthquake with any degree of distinct accuracy. We simply don't understand this highly complex cycle.

So my prediction is very generalized because I'm trying to balance the two facts - that it is cyclical in some way, and that we simply don't know how that cycle operates or how to determine where or when.

My reasons to live:

1) Women!!! (and the kids that pop out afterwards)
2) Coming up with cool ideas to maybe write about one day.
3) To play and have fun exploring.

What helps me survive since I'm not accomplishing any of those 3?
Coffee and Cigarettes and Hope that I'm on the verge of those 3!

Much respect Muzzle.


All great reasons to be alive! I just have to scratch my thoughts down now and again. This thread was as fitting as any to do it in. Apologies if I went too far off topic! (Though I believe it's all related)
