Malaysian Quake Caused by Naked Westerners

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/malaysia-detains-western-tourists-over-nude-pix-quake-072400220.html#1HLJ92u




Following the disaster, Malaysian social media users and some Sabah officials have focused on the nudists, suggesting that their actions angered the spirits and led to the earthquake.

But Masidi said the idea that the tourists' actions had caused the earthquake was "misconstrued".

"I never said that they actually caused the earthquake but their actions were against the people of the largest tribe in Sabah. The mountain is a revered and sacred site," he said.

Easy to figure out. Figure out the natural frequency of the average Western female breast. Compare it with the frequency of the shocks in the earthquake.

Well, I think that's little over simplified. With such a small group, I don't think we could go off of the "average" western female breast. I think we'd need to see the actual breasts in question, and base our calculations from there.

So you are advocating a more hands on approach to determine cause? Let me guess. You will volunteer?

He is advocating a more visual approach. Normally I would not just go by eyeballs alone and want to have a more hands on approach. However, as of today and the next few weeks, I'm kinda busy after the wife's elbow surgery so I will have to make some sacrifices and go for the tactile approach only and leave the visual stuff to others.

Profoundly Sorry

Nor Azlan, the guide who led them up the 13,435-ft mountain on May 30, said that the girls only removed their bras, while the men were completely naked.

Mr Nor, 36, said the group of ten had not met each other before.

“They were not friendly,” he told The Telegraph. “They didn’t even say 'hi’ like others do, they just kept on talking to each other.

“I could feel they didn’t have any patience and were arrogant. They seldom listened to what I said. I felt they were disrespecting me as a guide.”

So he was pissed that the girls didn't strip all the way?

Well, they could be on to something here.

Are their nude beaches in southern California? Yes, there are.

Are there earthquakes in Southern Cal? Yes, there are.

Sounds like a direct cause and effect to me!

Only problem is WI has Mazo Beach and not an earthquake. My house is a nude zone but no earthquakes. At least none from the seismic waves from the Earth Crust.

No, WI has not had earthquakes..... Yet!

Oklahoma is currently the leader in the number of earthquakes among the US states, but try as I might I cannot find the nude beaches here.

But they must exist. After all.... Earthquakes!
