I got news for you.
The ladies have great imaginations and I
have repeatedly been told that the two remaining
females in my family (we are getting old)
that they feel earthquakes when
I record absolutely nothing. I have noticed in
the past that boom like sounds will rattle
windows and such and never record
as any kind of EQ. I have a suspicion that
females are more sensitive than males to
vibrations and such and if they have no
seismology training want to call just about
anything that shake rattles or rolls an Earthquake.
It is best to keep your hobby stuff within the realm
of those interested in the science or you will be
pestered by false alerts...especially when dealing
with females. This is just as it seems to me
and might not be a reality since it would take a
research in Forensic Social-Psychology on this subject
of false perceptions to be sure.
