When large seismic events strike on the crust of the earth it's very possible that the shock waves traveling around the globe will cause havoc at the antipode opposite the disaster. The space body that slammed into the Yucatan sixty five million years ago very likely did just that. India was an island at the time, moving north and was right over what's called the Reunion hotspot. Right about the exact time frame that the Chicxulub crater was formed, one of the largest outpourings of lava in earth's history happened, forming what's termed the Deccan Traps, half the size of modern India. Right at Yucatan's antipode.

Powerful earthquakes probably can do the same thing. NASA claims the big one that hit Chile a year ago was so strong it actually shortened the earth's rotation by a miniscule amount, and the ring of fire is heating up down in South America - another big one hit the same area only a month ago. This Japan quake is the most powerful that the countryhas had in three hundred years. It's antipode is just off the coast of Chile. Are they bouncing back and forth?

It's also quite possibly true that quakes can trigger other fault lines to cut loose. Is this the reason why in late January FEMA ordered 140 million emergency meals specifically for an earthquake along the New Madras faultline, which has yet to happen? I think someone better check to see if HAARP was a little extra busy this morning.
