OK earthquakes are picking up again, just when I thought they would hibernate for the winter. I suspect that everybody is going nuts with fracking, with you-know-who in the captain's chair.
Plus we've got New Madrid perking up. All of this activity means I'm calling for a big quake before Christmas. I'm still high on my last successful prediction, that I'll say it's a 6, simply because that's more interesting than another 5. Been there, done that.
But for a 6 to be interesting, it has to be a shallow one, those deep-sixes we've had are forgettable. Since this is all sarcasm anyway, I'm calling for a shallow 6 that will knock down at least 3 abandoned downtown cores, composed of ridiculously tall, thin brick walls. Nobody will be killed because nobody lives there. :)
ps. the EPA is gone. Opec will soon be gone. This express train is on the rails!
