I know that the data are inconclusive for antipodal activity and earthquakes although there is enough to hint that there is a dynamic there which is intriguing and worth a look at. I know also that it's more pronounced in major impact events, but in light of recent activity, this kind of popped out to me.

We have extensively documented the fact that engineers knew that Fukushima was built in an area which was highly-susceptible to giant earthquakes, and that it would fail in a large earthquake.
Unfortunately, Pandora’s Box may now have been opened.
Specifically, Japanese scientists have published a scientific paper in European Geosciences Union’s journal Solid Earth saying that the 9.0 earthquake last March has apparently “awakened” the Fukushima earthquake fault, making it likely that a large earthquake will occur this year right near the stricken nuclear complex.
This process, together with the exertion of horizontally extensional stress regime, induced by the Tohoku-oki mainshock, caused reactivation of the Idosawa normal fault, leading to the 2011 Iwaki earthquake and
Scientists say that there is a 70% chance of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hitting Fukushima this year, and a 98% chance within the next 3 years.
