Boobquake! Run for your lives! Wait....don't they make a special bra for that? You know, more support or something?

If you are among the innocents that think of boobquake this way, let me clue you in, it gets much deeper than that. Boobquake will in fact become a threat...and in more ways than one.

Jen McCreight, a young college student, seems to be leading "Boobquake" as a worldwide effort to prove Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi's words wrong, when he said promiscuously dressed women were responsible for earthquakes. Ms. McCreight self describes herself as, "a liberal, geeky, nerdy, scientific, perverted atheist feminist trapped in Indiana." She's a Purdue University student who insists, "In the name of science, I offer my boobs.

One wonders in light of the fact that Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi, is a Muslim cleric who leads Friday's prayers in Tehran, Iran, how many participants will face threats and violence at the hands of Muslim believers. Boobquake asks that you deliver as much cleavage as possible, to prove scientifically, that the soft mounds of comfort are truly not earthquake mongers at all.


As Jen McCreight explains, the whole thing was truly innocent, and only in response to the ridiculous claims that women cause earthquakes. Though she hoped to put the issue to rest for both, Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi and "Fundamentalist Religion". She never dreamed that the movement wold grow to these proportions. Though it is hard to know for sure how many women will actually reveal more bosom, 200,000 women have pledged to participate globally.

Women have been quick to jump on board with both boobquake as well as brainquake, where women prove they have much more to offer than just their sexuality. The idea on both sides is to prove that women are not responsible for earthquakes.

So where is the proof one way or another? Follow this link to monitor seismic activity

"An earthquake struck off the southeast coast of Taiwan on Monday, causing buildings to sway briefly but no casualties or damage. The temblor was felt at the site of a massive landslide in northern Taiwan but did not hamper rescue efforts.

The 6.5-magnitude quake hit at 10:59 a.m. (0259 GMT), 195 miles (295 kilometers) off the southern Taiwan city of Taitung at a depth of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers), the U.S. Geological Survey said. The agency's initial report had put the quake's magnitude at 6.9.". Vanity Fair calls the quake "Philosophically Poorly Timed"
