The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow Alert™:
The Mayans predict earthquake in the the Midwest in July.


If we are being all technical and stuff, the Sun got a prophecy right when they said the Mayans foretold of earthquakes in the Midwest in July 2011.

There are earthquakes in the Midwest of the United States almost every day. They are just really small.

The biggest this month in the Midwest was a 2.8 on the Richter scale, epicenter near Greenbrier, Arkansas. California had about a dozen quakes stronger than that this month, none of the them newsworthy. The biggest this month was a 7.0 off the coast of Japan, about 16,000 times stronger than a 2.8 and about 100 weaker than the gigantic quake that hit Japan earlier this year.

So I'm counting this as a technically correct prophecy, but a practically pointless one. People do not need to be forewarned about earthquakes a cat might sleep through.
