In the name of science, I offer my boobs

This little bit of supernatural thinking has been floating around the blogosphere today:
"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media. Sedighi is Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader.
I have a modest proposal.

Sedighi claims that not dressing modestly causes earthquakes. If so, we should be able to test this claim scientifically. You all remember the homeopathy overdose?

Time for a Boobquake.

On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that's your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I'm sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn't rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it'll be one involving plate tectonics.

So, who's with me? I may be a D cup, but that will probably only produce a slight tremor on its own. If you'll be joining me on twitter, use the tag #boobquake! Or join the facebook event!

(Confused? Angry? Think my science is crap? Read a serious explanation of boobquake here)

  14. Bt cotton is ineffective against many cotton pests, however, such as plant bugs, stink bugs, and aphids; depending on circumstances it may still be desirable to use insecticides against these.

  15. Looks like it's catching. Egyptian blogger Aalia Magdi Elmahdy has recently posted fully nude pics of herself in protest against Islamic extremism in Egypt.  Needless to say, she's attracting the usual hate-filled comments from all the misogynists. Wonder what that sad Iranian cleric will make of Aalia's protest? Or will he be too busy dividing his time between spewing hate in public, and masturbating over her pics in private?

  17. Muslim countries have been regarded as a barrier to the passage of
    printing from China to the West. According to an imperial ambassador to Istanbul in the middle of the sixteenth century, it was a sin for the Turks to print religious books. In 1515, Sultan Selim I issued a decree under which the practice of printing would be punishable by death

  20. After the American Civil War ended in 1865, British and French traders
    abandoned Egyptian cotton and returned to cheap American exports,
    sending Egypt into a deficit spiral that led to the country declaring bankruptcy in 1876, a key factor behind Egypt's occupation by the British Empire in 1882.

  34. I really hope people know that the iranian language is very figurative and uses a lot of metaphors etc. so the translation is not to be taken literallly...either way, i found this to be hilarious, but i just hope people understand he was speaking figuratively and that the actual meaning of it was lost in translation...
