This so-called earthquake is actually going to be me taking a magnitude 7 poo poo, and it's gonna happen. There'll be no one to stop me this time.

And if you gaze long into an abyss, you will say `look, no ring.`

I've never noticed that if youlook at a map California is kinda the butt of America, but now I think about it, it explains all the earthquakes.

OP you need to make sure to contextualize those numbers. As in, a 6.0 is 50% more powerful than a 5.5

Apparently this isnt going to happen because the underground stuff in California is the wrong type. You know, plates and subduction zones and poo poo.

How did I never see this before! California is America's butt, Florida is America's wang and the eastern seaboard is the start of America's fat belly.

Edit: Also no way the earthquake will be anything other than scenario 3 as it is 2020 aka Hell Year.

That checks out. California legend Huell Howser did a depressing tour of the Salton Sea area with a bunch of local yokels. The highlight of the episode is Huell and some rando strolling around Bombay Beach and the only thing of interest the guy can point out is all the dead fish and the bars that got burned down or flooded. The dude casually mentions where his girlfriend died in one of the fires, Huell's only response is to ignore it and talk about birds.

The Salton Sea only exists because we hosed up the Colorado River 100 years ago, and now we spend all this effort keeping a valley in the middle of what should be barren desert an agricultural area. We should just let the sea dry up and do our farming in places that actually have water.

I hope you two live in like Indio or Palm Desert, the El Centro/Brawley area is one of the the most unpleasant areas I've been in the state. The nightly pesticide flyovers while it's still 100 is some real post-apocalypse farming poo poo.
