ART CASHIN: Planetary Alignments Could Trigger Earthquakes During The 'Mayan Apocalypse'

•, Sam Ro
 In this morning's "Cashin's Comments," he notes that another planetary alignment could trigger earthquakes during the period when we're supposedly going to experience the Mayan apocalypse:
Coincident Anniversary And The Mayans– Pop culture has delighted in focusing on the December 21st Mayan calendar number. Some have even projected the date as the end of the world. (In fact, floor wags teased disconsolate Romney supporters after the election, by saying "Cheer up. Sure Obama's re-elected but the world's gonna end in a month and a half.")
Some traders note that the Mayan date comes reasonably close to the Anniversary of the great New Madrid earthquake of 1811. They bring that up because, at least one planetary observer claims that the period of December 17 through 23 will have planetary alignments, which he claims may be conducive to more frequent and more powerful earthquakes on this planet.

Oh goody. A chance to bet on the side of the physical world against stupid. And I do not even have to read the article.

I will bet up to $200.00 that by any measurement you care to make that then number or intensity or severity or whatever over the next 30 days will not be out of line with what has happened in the past 50 years by more than a factor of 2. Of course that does not mean that there will not be a magnitude 7 earthquake. It means that there will not be more than two of them.
