Mexico's World Cup goal didn't just stun Germany; it caused an earthquake

Mexico's World Cup goal didn't just stun Germany; it caused an earthquake | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The Earth, however, was not amused.

According to the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Investigations (IGEA), the mass jumpathon prompted an angry response from the crusty old neighbor "downstairs."

The agency's sensors registered tremors at two sites in Mexico City — seven seconds after that soccer ball found the back of the net. That coincides convincingly with the 35th minute of play, when Lozano scored that goal. Researchers at IGEA are calling the resulting tremors an "artificial" earthquake.
