O.K. I believe "the big one" is coming. I believe as evidence of past earthquakes, that the later it happens, the higher the chance of it each year.But........ I remember my mom telling us what to do when "the big one" comes. I was about six years old, in 1963. 1971 earthquack.... holy cow!!!!! but not the big one several others....The best I can remember was 1987, 1991, 1994, and a few others. STILL NOT THE BIG ONE!!! So, I have two points about that. 1) Be ready, because even the other earthquakes can be big enough for problems. 2) I am tired of waiting and worrying for the big one. So, now I will mock it, hoping to challenge it, thus bringing it sooner, and being done with it!!! Disclaimer: Do not try this at home. the earthquack teaser above is a proffesional on a closed course. Your results may vary, and may have unintended consequences such as headaches, an ichy index finger, or death. Do not try this at home. Not available in the midwest.
