Boobquake Update: Did the Earth Move?

Fox 5 rises to the bait at the Dupont Circle Boobquake.

According the Daily Mail, there was a quake in Taiwan on Monday. It was fairly powerful–6.5 on the Richter scale–but evidently their was not too much damage and few if any injuries. The earth moved at 0259 GMT so it wasn’t even Monday yet in the Western Hemisphere, where most of the Boobquake activity occurred. I would call that an inclusive result.

Lead researcher and Boobquaketrix Jennifer McCreight:

On avg, 134 magnitude 6-6.9 earthquakes occur annually…If we get many of a similar magnitude in the next 24 hours, we might start worshipping the power of immodesty.

The quake in Taiwan does create a new wrinkle in the inquiry; a wrinkle in time, if you will–Did the effect of the Boobquake propagate backwards through time, since the earth moved before most if not all of the boobquake cleavage was in play?  Someone call Aharonov and Tollaksen.

In my opinion, further experiment is needed. If the experimental result cannot be replicated, it is just noise, a meaningless datum. If an experiment can’t be repeated, it’s not science.

Additional boobquake events must be initiated in order to obtain a usable sample.  The cleavage to quake interval must be accurately determined.


One response to “Boobquake Update: Did the Earth Move?

  1. Agreed. A single test does not a successful conclusion make. (Also correlation is not causation, etc etc.) That’s the kind of shady science that’s used to sell penis pills and it’s just no darn good.
