What started as joke, may have actually proved the power of the female anatomy. An Iranian cleric blamed a major earthquake on woman dressing 'immodestly'. With the intent to prove the cleric wrong, Jennifer McCreight planned a "Boobquake" where woman were encouraged to dress scandalously. That took place yesterday. You know what else happened yesterday, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit Taiwan. McCreight claims that it was not their fault because Taiwan was outside of the 'Boobquake time zone'. Coincidence? The scientist in me says we need a larger sample size and further experimentation.
"Boobquake, a day of action that calls on women worldwide to dress scandalously and prove wrong an Iranian cleric who blames natural disasters on immodest cleavage, has started disastrously, news.com.au reported Monday.
At 11am (local time), a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit Taiwan, no doubt causing thousands of Boobquake fans to hastily button up.
Although Boobquake founder Jennifer McCreight, of Indiana in the U.S., has claimed that the quake does not count because it happened outside her Boobquake time zone, she admitted on her blog that the wobble was significant, but not unusual.
“On avg, 134 magnitude 6-6.9 earthquakes occur annually,” she wrote on her Twitter feed, before following it up on her blog with: “If we get many of a similar magnitude in the next 24 hours, we might start worshipping the power of immodesty.”"
