From the Chicago Tribune:
"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.In response, skeptic Jen McCreight over at Blag Had has proposed 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.In honor of Boobquake, and because it's really hot here today, I'm going topless. I can do that, you see, because we have no neighbors. So far, no local quakes. Maybe I'm not trying hard enough.
Note: You will refrain from making comments about pictures. It's not like I'm a sweet young twenty-something.
