Here's an interesting map I thought I'd share with user's here.

If you've ever wondered where — and why — earthquakes happen the most, look no further than a new map, which plots more than a century's worth of nearly every recorded earthquake strong enough to at least rattle the bookshelves.

The map shows earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater since 1898

Very neat map.

Kind of looks like the Call of Duty Black Ops main screen that shows all the players active in the world.

Really puts into perspective where all the earthquakes happen though.

It looks like the safest place to be would be sitting on top of Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota in the U.S., just above the tiny picture of Lincoln in Abe's right eye socket.

The ring of fire has lived up to its name, hasn't it.

And rolling a rowboat almost anywhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean seem like a safe haven too.

Nice find, thanks!
