Remember the earthquake California had in 1992? Afterwards scientists said earthquakes were so unpredictable.
It seems one week earlier there was some underground nuclear testing
in nearby Nevada. Of course, there’s no connection.
Scientists do claim, however, there may be a connection between the earthquakes and the renowned eccentricity of Californians. Not the connection the Religious Right have claimed for years — earthquakes are God’s punishment — but the reverse. Earthquakes have an effect on the human mind.
Of course, nuclear testing might also have an effect, but that would only confuse the issue, so scientists aren’t looking there.
