Top 12 Earthquakes

In About Large Earthquakes, I mentioned that "[F]ive (5) of the top 15 earthquakes since 1900 have taken place in the last seven (7) years. In other words, thirty-three percent (33%) of these earthquakes have taken place in just over six percent (6%) of the time."

I looked at the earthquake list again. Actually, it is also true that five (5) of the top 12 earthquakes since 1900 have taken place in the last seven (7) years. In other words, almost forty-two percent (42%) of these earthquakes have taken place in just over six percent (6%) of the time. What's up with that?

Another thing, when two bad things happen, watch out for the third. Bad things tend to happen in threes (I think this has to do with the shape of multiple universes or something). We had the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear reactor disasters (I'm counting this as one event) and the attack on Libya. What is next?
