Jujuy is not a very densely populated region.

From the first informations, nobody was hurt.

My birds have been going nuts all day - it's what they do when a storm front is moving in OR if there's major earthquake activity somewhere.

...Could be this one or maybe Alaska.

Are you actually implying that an Earthquake in Argentina caused your husband and daughter to be in foul moods? There are tons of earthquakes DAILY. Are they just constantly pissed off?

Earthquakes happen EVERYDAY!!!
You posted a link to a website and gave absolutely ZERO input as to why you were posting this or HOW it was signifigant in ANY way.

Could you tell me your take on this Earthquake and why it is any more signifigant than any of the other
dozens of EQs that happened today?

I DO feel that things are heating up on a global scale with natural disasters.
I do feel that they are getting more and more frequent as we draw nearer to 2012.
I just don't understand why this one is any different.

Please clarify.

So your line of reasoning is that yes, there are more earthquakes, and yes this is a sign that something unusual is going on, but earthquake news should be ignored because somehow the very quantity of earthquakes makes every single one of them by itself insignificant? If that's not the snake eating its own tail, I don't know what is!

My guess is it's significant because it is above a 6.0 and it's very shallow.

No, I never said EQ news should be ignored.
You are putting words in my mouth and assuming much.
If you would like to ask me a question because you need clarification please feel free.
Otherwise continue on doing what you are already doing, namely, putting words in peoples mouths.

screwed,
you asked for it from warpcrafter......you wanted more clarification.....and
you got it.
I would like to ask you a question, what makes you think this eq isn't significant in relation to the volcano that blew today.........hum.....................or is there no correlation between volcanoes and EQs? my bet there is and oh yea.....we just had some CME's go off recently too.........maybe that doesn't matter either. just sayin........
I love your posts screwed.......but hey you did open your self up...
