    That's Dec. 21, and there has been axis realignment in the world's history. Either way, it won't happen. Planetary alignment may, but it won't throw off our axis.

    No, this is a separate doomsday prediction. Astrology based.
    Go check some YouTube videos on March 22.

    Off by 3 days. It actually hit on the 19th.

    There was a 7+ earthquake on March 14th in Japan.

    These earthquakes happen frequently. It's not a big deal, and his prediction was no good.

    So, unless there's another one coming... he was wrong.

    Yeah, he didn't offer specifics.

    Like I could say that there will be a BIG tornado on March 31st....

    That's a list of all the 5.0 + earthquakes worldwide in just the last 7 days. There have been 29 events. Happens every day, somewhere. It's the same every week.

    Other than Japan and now Mexico, this year, there were also 7+ on:
    January 10, Magnitude 7.2 - Northern Sumatra
    Feb 2, Magnitude 7.1 - Vanatu

    Well, it was pretty big here. Not much damage, but part of that being more horizontal than vertical, but I remembered this thread. Pretty crazy. It was frightening and fairly major really.

    Yeah but it didn't happen on the exact day (is it even the 22nd yet?) and besides big earthquakes happen a lot.

    Interesting that it happened, but not quite the right day. Still interesting.

    Why make the prediction?

    What time zone? Local to the earthquake, or us here NFL land?

    Maybe it'll happen in Wisconsin...

    Sleepless families in a small Wisconsin town longed for quiet Wednesday after mysterious booming noises over the past few nights roused them from bed and sent residents into the street - sometimes still in pajamas.

    The strange disturbance sounds like distant thunder, fireworks or someone slamming a heavy door. At first, many people were amused or merely curious. But after three restless nights, aggravation is mounting. And some folks are considering leaving town until investigators determine the source of the racket.
    ...
    The city is also investigating geological causes. Officials plan to bring in vibration-detection devices to try to determine the epicenter of any underground activity.

    Well, Japan and Australia are out as it's already the 23rd there. China is about to roll over as well.

    East coast and beyond is saved, it's the 23rd now. Hawaii will be sitting on the edge of their seats for the next 6 hours.

    AV, are you going to point at the premature Mexican quake and claim victory or hold out for one to happen today/tomorrow and then use that for victory?
