A massive earthquake in Asia unleashed tsunamis killing thousands, exactly one year to the hour after the Bam, Iran earthquake killed 26,000. What are the odds of two of the most destructive earthquakes in decades occuring exactly one year apart- almost to the minute!
December 26, 2003 - Bam, Iran, only 6.6 on the richter scale, but quake is centered directly under the city- 26,000 dead.
December 26, 2004 - Centered off the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the massive quake, which measured 9.0 on the richter scale, unleashed tidal waves across the Indian Ocean.
A strong earthquake occurred at 01:56:52 (UTC) on Friday, December 26, 2003. The magnitude 6.6 event has been located in SOUTHEASTERN IRAN.
A great earthquake occurred at 00:58:55 (UTC) on Sunday, December 26, 2004. The magnitude 8.1 event has been located OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA.
I would venture the odds are much lower than someone thinking their vanity post belongs in breaking news and front page news, since that happens all the time here.
Well...yes. What else could it be?
....the CIA is testing a weapon of mass destruction....
However, the earth was not in the exact same position around the sun, as 2004 was a leap year.

Who do you think is behind this dastardly plot?
Interesting thing about dates and probability is that in any group of, say, 20-30 people you're virtually guaranteed that two will have the same birthday....most people, just guessing, would assume the probability would be much lower.
Where on the planet was Michael Moore when these things happened? I think there ought to be an investigation!
and your point is???
Wow. That is spooky!
I'm not suggesting anything - I'm just surprised by the timinb of the 2 largest quakes in recent memory.
26 Dec 04 - Indian Ocean Earthquake - 50,000 dead
26 Dec 03 - Iran Quake - 25,000 dead
26 Jan 02 - Gujarat Earthquake - 30,000 dead
