Global Earthquake Activity, May 21, 2011 (Or, Alternatively, "There Goes Doomsday")



Since the Family Radio website is down (or experiencing too much traffic to handle on this, its alleged Judgment Day), we can't check to see what Harold Camping is up to so let's consult USGS to see if his doomsday predictions are coming true as we speak.

Looks like I packed a Adidas bag for nothing. 5:00and still here on this earth. Drinking a milk shake in a Lion's Choice Roast Beef that has free wi-fi. What? I'm frugal to the bitter end.
