Yep. Skyquake.

More news about the "mystery boom" heard and felt all over San Diego on April 4th. The scientists have spoken.

I agree with their hypothesis, that the sound originated from the west, from the ocean, and was an airburst, not waves traveling through the ground.

And as they say, not the first time. My house faces due west out to the ocean and many, many times per year one experiences sudden window shaking and the eerie sense of a pressure wave going through the house (you can feel it momentarily in your ears). Thing is, on April 4th the intensity of the shaking and the pressure wave was much, much stronger than I've encountered before.

Military's up to something, seems like. Click on the image below to see the SD Union-Tribune's map.

that's just a little disturbing. oddly, I had a dream last night about a military jet producing a large boom, and I did not even know anything about this.

Whoa... sounds like theyre testing the sonic equivalent of an A-Bomb... probably to determine if it's ready for use against Iran.

It makes sense I guess. If you can have something with similiar functionality to a nuke but without the messy radioactive fallout, then you can engage in guilt-free mass bombing to your hearts content. Shit...

Anyone know where I can get a 60's style backyard shelter kit? Might come in handy.
