What is a BoobQuake Earthquake?

Jen McCreight, a feminist from Indiana, has created an international Boobquake stir after hearing a statement by Hojatoleslam Kazim Sadeghi, an Iranian cleric, when he said that when girls and women dress inappropriately that they spread promiscuity in society: "When promiscuity spreads, earthquakes increase. There is no way other than taking refuge in religion and adapting ourselves to Islamic behavior."

This hard-line Iranian cleric is saying that women who dress in a provocative manner and tempt men are the cause for earthquakes. What a ridiculous statement to make in my opinion. But that is his religion and he is entitled to his opinion.

So Jen started up a FaceBook group encouraging women today to dress in a more revealing manner than they normally would, but nothing extreme, to conduct a scientific experiment today to see if it would cause an Boobquake. As of two days ago she has over 50,000 women pledging to take part, all in the name of science of course. Well maybe to poke a bit of fun at this crazy statement that was made.

The winners of this test will surely be men worldwide. Let the cleavage contest begin! But I'm sure you must be wondering: What if there is a major earthquake today? Will it have been caused by a BoobQuake? How will we ever know for sure? We just may have to repeat this awesome experiment often. I sure wouldn't mind!

Seeing how CNN and FoxNews have picked up on the Boobquake story and it's currently #7 on the hottest trending topics on Twitter at 3:30 A.M. I Couldn't pass this story up. I always love to write about a funny story. And when its about Boobs, well that's just icing on the cake.

Science Verses Religion

On Jen McCreight's Blog she says: "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.

She goes on to say: "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."

It sure won't hurt any that Jen McCreight has size D breasts, she says this in the YouTube video below. She can contribute a lot to her own BoobQuake experiment.

To keep this a truly scientific experiment Jen has promised to collect statistics on how many earthquakes there are today and their severity. Or should that be how many BoobQuakes all of this causes? If there were to be a major earthquake today this experiment will only grow larger and larger just like an actor's Boobs who is addicted to silicon injections.

If there was any truth at all to the statements made by this Iranian cleric surely all of Las Vegas would have long ago been destroyed by earthquakes. Thankfully Las Vegas, NV. is still here as it is where I live.

You can follow Boobquake on Twitter to keep track of the official earthquake inducing boob news throughout the day. You can even buy your BoobQuake 2010 T-Shirts to help support the cause. 100% of the sales goes to charity, half to the Red Cross and the other half to JREF according to the BoobQuake Facebook page Jen setup.

I plan to update this hub throughout the day with any new Boobquake news as it develops.

Seems the "b00bs" word triggers the spam filter in the comments. I don't think AdSense like it either. I hope you found what you was looking for Tony, that's my name too. Thanks

I'm happy you liked this fun hub of mine trsmith. Its great to see a group of people uniting for a cause. It is awesome that the power of the internet can make their voices heard by millions when something like this catches fire and gets national media attention even if this was all in fun.

Too Funny! I participate everyday, in a bikini top tarring roofs, he,he. What can I say, it's freakin' hot up there and I like the tan. :) Geez, I keep waiting for the earthquake here to prove my boobs did the trick. I must not be big enough to cause such a stir, lol. Guess I'll have to keep working on that!

Great Hub! Clerics have a way of knowing exactly what causes everything...why don't they have an answer for what causes fanatical extremeism? Which by the way is not limited to the Islamic states.


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 6 years ago from California

LOL. Way to reveal this to me. Without your fine hub exposing the jiggling truth behind earthquakes and the cleavage that exists between Islam and tectonic stability, I would never have grasped that such a pair of opposing spheres of information could rub against one another as they do. I'll gladly lend a hand in supporting this movement.

I also like NoBSSEO's comment about me, 'Gives a whole new meaning to the question "did the earth move for you?"'

LOL.

This hub has been bookmarked for more study. :)

Man that's a great, creative comment Shadesbreath. I can only imagine how well written your hubs must be. So many great writers here and so little time. I really wish I had a few extra hours in the day to keep up with this place. Thanks for the laugh Shadesbreath! :)

Yet another great comment NoBSSEO. I should have thought of that when writing this hub. Very funny. Thanks for commenting.

Thanks CarpetDiem. I'm glad your enjoyed the great comments which are probably better than my hub. :)

This hub was only an experiment to get tons of traffic for a news story. It worked very well. 3,435 views in 4 days (1,333 from HP) :)

Quick shameless plug: Please check out some of my other hubs that I feel are better than this one.

I don't know about an earthquake being caused by cleveage, but cleavage can jar your attention in much the same way.

Which way is the beach?


MyWebs profile image

MyWebs 6 years ago from Sheridan, WY Author

Harlan Colt you make a good point. While there are not any beaches close by, I do always have the Las Vegas Strip. Considering how women often dress there, it isn't much different than a beach. One of Las Vegas's nicknames is, Adult Disneyland for good reason.

I'd love to have you stop by sometime, MyWebs. I'm going to take the request you made somewhere, here or elsewhere, that people not take your boob hub as "you" and read your other stuff and go do just that. There is a lot of "noise" on HP. People have to slow down and connect on human levels. Read for real, not ... whatever. Your point about that seemed so genuine. So, I'm off to poke at a few of your hubs randomly.

Peace.

MyWebs 6 years ago from Sheridan, WY Author

Shadesbreath I'm trying desperately to recall this statement you say I made, but I can not. I have a bad memory and blame the 70's, 80's and 90's for this.

I do try and get to know users here on hubpages, but I'm not a very outgoing person so I'm sure I could do much better. I will come by soon and read some of your hubs. Thanks for your comments.

Wait a minute! This explains everything! No wonder New York NEVER gets any earthquakes because our women are butt-ugly ;) Whatever dude.

I've not heard of this preposterous rumor until now...What will people think of next?!

Great write-up on a fascinating, yet titillating topic!


MyWebs profile image

MyWebs 6 years ago from Sheridan, WY Author

LOL Dohn, I'm sure you must have your share of hotties there, all areas do. I just may have to come to NY and check things out one day for myself, but only when its warm.

Thanks for coming by and commenting my friend.

Wow I never thought a cleric would associate earthquakes with women's boobs. Maybe the cleric didn't like science that much that he associated it with us. But this hub is funny! great work you have here MyWebs. And I would like to know the result of this experiment and the reaction of the cleric. =D


MyWebs profile image

MyWebs 6 years ago from Sheridan, WY Author

The results? Well there was one major Earthquake that day, in Taiwan if I recall correctly. So I think we need to do this again and again until we know for sure.
