    I blame fracking. Not really sure what fracking is but I usually attribute that to most of the woes of modern society.

    I think it's funny that a lot of the media automatically blames fracking, a technique that hasn't been around for very long.

    Could it just be that perhaps the tectonic plates that have been moving for millions and millions of years are....you know, moving?

    Tangent, if anyone hasn't seen the 30 for 30 special about the '89 quake in San Francisco during the World Series go catch it on Netflix. Fair warning it's depressing as hell.

    The earth is constantly changing of course. Besides something from the north texas industry, I have no idea. The dreamer in me says something Pacific rimmish.

    Conspiracy theory, the go green extremist possibly behind earthquake phenomenon. It's a world wide attack to drive energy and oil down and out. Connect the dots and follow the money, starting with the price of oil.

    The hilarious part is those tremors are all centered around an area by where Texas Stadium used to stand. The ghosts of Texas Stadium probably celebrating a Cowboys playoffs. Of course it's also nearby Dr Pepper Snapple Bottling, too, so there's that ...
