I brought this up in IRC the other day, but figured it was interesting enough to post about.
http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5jGtNgeoxLtX_60kT7_7qa2Kkj55AD900250O0

The gist (For those who somehow can't fit clicking the link above into their schedules): Unexplainable earthquakes have been happening off the coast of Oregon.
My favorite part of the article: "sound like low thunder and are unlike anything scientists have heard in 17 years of listening"

So, any theories?  ;)

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Theory 1: giant tunneling worms.
Theory 2: viral marketing for new cloverfield movie.

Thats pretty weird. There was a small earthquake here too(here being Southern Indiana). My money would be on the Mole People.
By the time you finish reading this signature, I've gotten into your house, stolen your t.v., and re-decorated the place so that it fits with your hipster lifestyle.

It's obviously a potent mixture of swamp gas.

And a weather balloon.

And an elaborate hoax.

Or possibly a hoax if a weather balloon filled with wamp gas.

Nukes? ??? A bit unlikely.

New type of earthquake? Maybe.
