I read an article in yesterdays Irish Times referring to an internet driven rumour that a massive earthquake would hit Rome on the 11th of May.
It got so bad that a number of businesses in the city shut down for the day.
It was all based on what was regarded as 'quackpot science' but I nearly fell off me chair last night when I saw the nine o'clock news on RTE telling us that there had been a major quake in Spain.
Now maybe there's loads of quakes everyday around the world, I don't know the stats I'm not a seisMick fella, but it was a bit freaky alright all the same . . .
