If you are watching this, is the frequency increasing all over the world? When something moves, something else has to give way. Is there some type of major shift and more to come?

We really don't want that. It would take Orange County, the Navy base in San Diego, NAS North Island, Gator Navy/SEALs in Coronado as well as Camp Pendleton with it. We need a new fault line to look forward to.

Nope. Not at all. If anything worldwide quakes are below normal.

However, the frequency of every little quake all over the world getting a FR thread is increasing.

Well the good news is there are less quakes which brings on the bad news, the pressure is building somewhere.

The above link will give you the USGS world map of current earthquakes for the Pacific Rim - or all the countries which border the Pacific Ocean. As you can see by looking at the map - the Pacific Rim has been very busy this year.

As it's been busy for tens of millions of years.

It's a continuation of the Pacific Rim earthquakes - over 200 this year.

If you don't think it's news, then why did you click on the link ..??

You seem to be under the mistaken impression there's anything remotely unusual about over 200 Pacific Rim earthquakes.

It actually looks like that most of the time. The pacific NW is always having a quake.

20 miles down is pretty deep, isn't it? So no-one should be able to feel it?

If you have evidence which you can produce that says that 200 earthquakes in a year for the Pacific Rim is not unusual - please produce it!

Well, the Pacific in roughly this configuration we see today with similar subduction zones and faults has been around for tens of millions of years.

Earthquake activity in 2004 was basically completely normal, even a bit below normal for major quakes, and most world quakes are always in the Pacific rim.

Hence, it's a pretty safe assumption that this year's Pacific Rim quake activity has been going on for tens of millions of years.

Ever looked on Drudge quake sheet? Probably have had 200 in the last month in CA. Most are never felt. This would be a good time for you to get better informed about earthquakes. Check out the USGS.

It's YOUR responsibility to prove it's unusual, not my responsibility to prove it isn't.

But, anyway....

http://neic.usgs.gov/neis/eqlists/eqstats.html

Shows quake activity worldwide this year was perfectly normal. It doesn't break it down specifically to the Pacific Rim, but most quakes are always on the Pacific Rim.

Again, what gives you the idea that that many quakes (and it's actually a LOT more than "200 quakes" if you count all detected quakes it's into the many thousands) in the Pacific Rim is unusual? Some Apocalyptikook site?

If you are going to start a thread about every 4.0 or greater earthquake,
then you are going to be a very busy little ant.

But little quakes are actually good because they releave pressure. You basically want some minor activity all the time.

However, there is a lot more hot air coming from the DNC.

Speaking of the DNC, I have heard that the tidal wave was not caused by an earthquake, but that there are rumors that Michael Moore was on vacation in Thailand and did a belly flop off the hotel high diving board into the ocean. You know the rest?
