Boobquake was a resounding success; women everywhere have bared their cleavage (and other things) for science. I’m so proud of us!

But I’m also disappointed, because it appears our boobs do not have supernatural powers. Yes, there was a 6.5 in Taiwan yesterday—earthquakes around that size happen over 100 times every year, so there was a good chance one would happen yesterday. But the overall number of earthquakes on Boobquake was no greater than it was on any other day. If you’re interested in the science and statistics, Professor Braile has written an interesting summary.

Hey, maybe it needs more testing. I’m willing to loan my boobs to science again, should the occasion arise.

And don’t forget to get your Boobquake shirt!
