OK, Here's the deal.... A few days ago we had a "blue moon" and the moon was closest to the earth... We had super high and low tides... When we have the full moon-really close to the earth, in conjunction with super high and low tides. I Believe that puts huge stresses on the tektonic faults and BANG! earthquakes. (I live in San Diego) I predicted an earthquake or volcanic erruption would happen on the second. Well, I missed. We had TWO a few miles to the south east near Calexico. They don't call me seismic wonder for nothing!!! Who's laughing now Cornell!!!! MIT! blagh, return my paper as unfounded claptrap will ya! USGS! Go jump in a lake!
