At this point you are probably well aware of tomorrow’s Boobquake, in which women (and any chubby men that feel like participating) will flaunt their breasts to test an Iranian cleric’s theory that immodest dress causes earthquakes.
However, if you look carefully, his claim is slightly different:
The prayer leader, Hojatoleslam Kazim Sadeghi, says women and girls who “don’t dress appropriately” spread “promiscuity in society.”
“When promiscuity spreads, earthquakes increase,” he says in a video posted Monday on YouTube, apparently of him leading Friday prayers in Tehran, Iran, last week.
This makes my inner scientist worry. Maybe immodestly leads to promiscuity, but unless it leads to same-day promiscuity, then we shouldn’t expect to see an earthquake tomorrow even if Sadeghi is right!
There’s only one way to make sure the science works out. Promiscuity-quake! Who’s in?
