I think I found the most useful part of the video was the use of timeanddate.com to calculate dates. Did anyone else bother to check out this
supposed cycle? I used the dates and did searches using the database
over a 3 day period centred on the cycle dates, and I got down
to 2004 before deciding I'd wasted enough time. There was one other period with a 7.1, but the rest had nothing more than a 6.5. It is worth noting
that there is on average one quake in the 6-6.9 range approximately every 3 days.
If this supposed cycle was actually due to a large celestial body, then I would expect a little more than a few cycles as evidence. If the cycle was
all 8.0 and above it would be more impressive, but 7.0's are far more common. I don't think there is any meaningful trend to be established from
the information given. I think they've just taken the time between the two largest quakes in the last two years, and found that half way between
these dates was a 7.0, and another similar quake in the same time frame after the Japan quake. Not exactly a strong trend.
Of course, we could get a strong quake on March 22nd, but I don't think it's any more likely than getting a strong quake today or tomorrow or the
next day. You should be prepared for earthquakes (or any other disaster) at all times any way, regardless of the many youtube prophets of doom. I
don't know about you guys, but I intend on being here to celebrate the arrival of 2013, and I see no reason to expect that I won't.
