Popcorn Cravings A Corny Predictor Of Earthquakes

SALEM, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It may sound corny, but a human earthquake predictor claims people who had cravings for popcorn days before the 7.6-magnitude Pakistan earthquake last Saturday (Oct. 8) were actually predicting the quake.

Oregon-based “biological sensitive” Charlotte King says thoughts of popcorn and corn products pop into people’s heads before big earthquakes because she claims the brain craves the Vitamin B in corn before a big shake up.

King isn’t just popping off at the mouth. Before last week’s quake, she says, “I couldn’t stop eating corn chips.”

Corn isn’t the only predictor of quakes. King says aches and pains all over the body predict the location of a rumble.

For instance, days before Pakistan’s quake she alerted people that an earache in her left ear told her China, Pakistan or India was due for a big one.

If she’s right, the walking Richter scale predicts Pakistan will suffer a second aftershock, equal to the 5.6- magnitude quake that hit yesterday (Oct. 13), sometime between the 26th and 31st of this month.
