Quakes are like housing prices

Somebody has actually plotted general earthquake activity near Los Angeles, and has concluded that they are currently in a 'lull'. This article.

The only problem is that lulls can be shattered. Or perhaps, they have proven the obvious, that random events cluster, and that 20-20 hindsight doesn't get you anywhere. I suppose one could think the lull will last another 1000 years, and also that housing prices will rise forever.

Ah, such are the dreams of the happy people...
