Boobquake — Baring Cleavage To Disprove Earthquake Madness Causes Earthquake?

One of the most ridiculous statements to come out of Iran since Mahmoud Achmadenijad became president was, for the first time in years, not uttered by said president.  It was proclaimed by a Muslim cleric.  The cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, said that scantily clad women and those who acted promiscuously were the cause of all the recent earthquakes. 

His words were: “Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which [consequently] increases earthquakes.”

Of course, someone had to prove him wrong.  Enter: Jennifer McCreight, student at Purdue University. 

McCreight went on her blog, “Blag Hag,” and put out a call for women to unite in a show of cleavage.  She wrote: “Time for a Boobquake.  On Monday, April 26, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. … I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts.”

She also took to Twitter and posted a picture of herself in her most revealing shirt.

Jennifer McCreight told WGN in Chicago, “When I heard what the Iranian cleric had said, I thought it was ridiculous — but it was also something we could test scientifically.” 

By Monday, over 200,000 women had responded to Jennifer McCreight’s Facebook call to arms (cleavage? boobs?).

But did boobquake work?  Judge for yourself. 

Thousands of women wore their most revealing apparel Monday, April 26, in support of the idea that showing cleavage had no effect on seismic activity within the earth.  At 10:59 a.m. Tuesday, April 27, a 6.5 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Taiwan. 

Cause and effect?  Or coincidental independent events: boobquake and earthquake?  Does it matter?  Each side will no doubt dismiss the argument of the other…

But you just know that somewhere in Iran a Muslim cleric is feeling quite smug — outraged over the cleavage, but smug nonetheless…

      Umm. Some cleric claimed that natural disasters are Gods way if punishing sinners. Guess what? So did Pat Robertson who claimed that the Haiti earthquake was the result of Haiti’s “satanism” and the new Orleans flood was caused by homosexuality. So why pick on the cleric in Iran? Oh and Ahmadinejad didn’t say there are no gays in Iran. He said there are no gays LIKE IN THE US meaning open gay culture. So lease stop with the mindlessness.

      “Boobquake” is just a lot of feminist promiscuity and troublemaking. Next they’ll whine because men actually look at them when they pull out their tits.

      False accusations, broken homes, social decay: that’s all feminism will ever lead to.

        How exactly does feminism cause ANY of those things?
        Feminism is about women wanting equality to men.
        Women being able to vote, work, go to school, and make our own decisions for our own lives doesn’t cause social discord, broken homes, or anything else.

        Women not being treated like inferior beings, property or second class citizens doesn’t cause anything negative,unless you think that making the world a place where men don’t have tyrannical,absolute power over all aspects of society while women have no choice or voice in any matter, including over how they choose to live their own lives a negative thing.
        Feminism is about trying to make the world a place where neither gender has power over the other, and where women have every right that a man has.

        You’re either incredibly ignorant or an internet troll.
        If you’re a troll, than congratulations, you’ve succeeded in making some one upset. Have a cookie.
        If you’re ignorant, than might I suggest you move to Amish country, or the middle east? You’ll feel most comfortable there, since you won’t have to worry about any pesky women taking your jobs or voting in your government.

By introducing yourself to owners the first end of the week their FSBO is definitely announced, ahead of the masses get started calling on Mon, you produce a good relationship. By sending them methods, educational components, free reviews, and forms, you become a strong ally. By subtracting a personal desire for them as well as their problem, you build a solid link that, on most occasions, pays off in the event the owners opt with a broker they know plus trust — preferably you.
