It wasn't a real earthquake,it was one of those oil drills that hit an air pocket underneath the ground while drilling that cause the underground boom. These are one of the things the oil companies won't tell anybody.

Its idiots like you who is trying to be a hero in your own stories, you keep repeating yourself saying its a natural earthquake. The workers I know in the oil business tell me that's its from the drilling, idiots like you who lies so much that you believe your own lies & your lies dominate your life.

Wow your the idiot iv been I'n the oil field for 30 years as a toolpusher and its never caused earthquakes .. There is no air pockets that explode under ground the only exploxives that go off on a well is wireline and it's usually to the most 40 charges that barly shake the well head wen they r detonated .. The only thing that would cause an earthquake that we would barley feel is from fracturing and they have been doing fracturing for a very long time all over the world and it's only caused one earth quake In the middle east .. So study ur plates In the ground and u will realize south Texas is right on a fault line

You must be vouching for the oil company's , the reason the oil company's don't want to admit is that the ground shake cause by the drilling into the ground. They don't want the civil liability when someone's property, or gets injured by the ground shaking cause by the drill. Yeah idiot lie to the people making think your a geologist, a liar that's trying to be a hero in his own stories. What are you gonna predict next? A tsunami in South Padre Island on Spring Break!

Why don't you get off your ass and come work on my drilling and start realizing who the one lying is. People say it's oil field when they don't know shit about it . Your the one going off thinking your a geologist saying its from drilling when you really don't know shit about any oil field. So are you gonna start believing the sky is falling too ? Do some research so you have proof . I can back it up any time you want just come work on my rig so you can see no explosions happen when we drill . And FYI we don't drill straight into the oil cavity. That's why they have fracturing.

Just like I said if you did your research we live right on a plate fault line .

REALLY?
**We are so arrogant and so stupid at the same time it is more amazing than Earthquakes!

**Do you think Earthquakes are a recent thing?
**What about those that have occured over the eons? Did we make those? We have been drilling for oil for a little more than a hundred years...since the 1870's at the soonest.
**What about the millions of years before that?**How about the New Madrid Quake in early 1800's? Right there in the middle of the country? What about the rest of the world. It wasn't us, and God knows how many smaller quakes there were then.
**The Earth is 'streaching' as it expands in some areas and decreases in subduction zones.
**Don't want to drill of the Santa Barbara Coast? Well, I hate sitting on those lovely beaches and watching the tar that oozzes up stick to my suit and towel. It's been doing that since the Spanish first recorded it in the 1700's.
** This stuff is here, use it and clean up the mess, so we can move on...
** The earth burps gas up from the seabeds. Where are you?

What you'll only know is the lies you tell so much, is that you believe your own lies. So stick to your own lies till they run along up on you. Your failed hero you tell in your own stories.

Porn Star, really? are you kidding?
You need to do a lot more research.
Earthquakes happen. All over the Earth, not just your neck of the woods. And, sometimes they are VERY big. You felt a tiny one. Big is 6.0+ where I come from.
No one believes Chicken Little's story anymore.

Are you a scientist? If not, you need to slow down on reading to much National Geographic. You talking about California,which is on the Pacific Plate, of course their in for a catastrophe, Texas does not have any plates, Texas have faultlines,not active enough to move. I felt earthquake in California, majority of the man made earthquakes in Texas are from the oil drilling into the earth s crust.

Now San Antonio is a HUD for the oil industry, more drilling is gonna fuck up the earths ground. There accidents they keep quiet,and also one day you'll gonna stick the drill in the wrong area, all that sulfur & volcanic magma is gonna shoot up so fast & quick that there's no time to run hide most of the crew will be dead from the fumes from the gases, no escape. How is that gonna be covered up? I see you say you been drilling for over 30 years? How many times you felt scared while drilling? Feeling the drilling equipment "rattling" ?

And FYI they only drill into the shell no where's close to lava they only drill are roughly 15 thousand feet down the crust on the earth is about 30 miles down
