Stupid People Staying Away From Rome In Fear Of Earthquake

Thousands of people have apparently left Rome over the last few days over a fear that it will be destroyed today in a giant earthquake, according to the BBC.

The quake was predicted by Raffaele Benandi, who died in 1979. Let me make that clear: the man has been dead for thirty two years.

That’s not the only problem with this – you can’t predict earthquakes and if you could, it wouldn’t be that far in advance.

Anyway, Italy is an hour ahead of us here, so by my clock there’s four minutes left to prove Benandi right.

I think they’ll be fine.

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
