Teenagers care more about earthquakes than Mary Fallin…


If you reading this, you’ve more than likely been a teenager at some point in your life. If not, then your parents need to do a better job monitoring your Internet history. This place is for immature grown ups! Get out of here and go lick eyeballs, smoke some Smarties or download these nine “dangerous” apps that KFOR warned us you are using.

Since we’ve all been teenagers, we know that most of them are self-absorbed narcissists who think the world revolves around themselves. They generally don’t care about issues or causes or politics. They have more important things to worry about, like talking shit about friends, scoring cheap drugs and destroying property. Granted, you can say the same thing about most adults, but at least we pretend to care about things that don’t affect us.

That being said, some Oklahoma teenagers are defying the stereotype. Earlier this week, News 9 reported that some high school students from Bethel are researching our earthquakes. Well, at least they are until Continental Resources instructs Mary Fallin to shut the school down.

Via News 9:

A group of students are tackling the topic of Oklahoma earthquakes. The Bethel High teenagers are dedicating their time after school to raise awareness of drills and safety…

Now, this talented group of teens will focus their time after class on a topic that has rattled so many in our state.

“Recently Oklahoma has led the world in seismic activity,” said senior Dakota Mullendore. “We’re bound to have a big one.”

So to get everyone ready for the big one, they designed brochures, built a website with all kinds of information – the spike in statistics, earthquake safety and school drills.

Wow. They designed brochures about our man-made earthquakes? That’s awesome. Can we get them to mail a couple of copies to Mary Fallin, The Corporation Commission, the Oklahoma Geological Survey and all the other agencies and politicians who are dragging their feet on the earthquake problem? They could probably use the data.

They hope the video they produced will spread to other schools and spark conversations that could make a difference the next time the ground shakes.

The STEM club is in the running to win another $30,000 through the same competition.

Most high school students are annoying, but these kids are awesome! Way to go Bethel High School Students! It’s good to see someone in Oklahoma act like they give a fuc…. errrr…. dang about earthquakes. I’m sure you’re all going to make a lot of money working out-of-state someday. If he hasn’t already, expect David Boren’s to offer each of you a President’s Scholarship to OU. He’ll probably want to oversee all your future earthquake research.

  1. Don’t those dumb teenagers know that Oklahoma owes everything to the oil companies, that we would still be traveling in horse drawn wagons and shooting Indians with bow and arrows and our benevolent energy companies are completely above reproach and pure as the baby lamb? How dare they bring light to this savage belief?

  2. Wearing lab coats!? Okay, I’m over the posing – way to go kids. Smart and on to a great future outside of Oklahoma.

  3. Not to worry, someone will come along at school or home to tell them we just don’t know enough to come to any conclusions. But good for them! Hope they stuck with it!

  4. I’m not sure this is of as much importance to you, but I attend high school in Central Oklahoma and I started and wrote most of this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009%E2%80%9316_Oklahoma_earthquake_swarms. Here is the page’s history: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=2009%E2%80%9316_Oklahoma_earthquake_swarms&action=history – I try to keep everyone informed!

  5. I’m sure Mary Failing has a lot of experience dealing with a petulant, delusional teenager. She’ll set them right in no time.

    1. LOLZ That trailer will be a perfect spot for homeschooling!

  6. Gee, I thought Oklahoma’s lazy, money grabbing teachers were producing students who couldn’t read or write, much less enabling them to become active participants in finding solutions to our state’s problems. Interesting how the powers that be at the Capitol consider Oklahoma’s public education system not worth crap, yet that same system is preparing a work force desirable to other states.

  7. I suppose if I spent part of my childhood wondering if an earthquake would kill me, I too would be interested in wondering how to stop them!

    Our state doesn’t care about the future generation… poor kids these days are enduring subpar education and earthquakes that wake them in the middle of the night.

    Gotta feel sorry for Oklahoma children! They are bearing the brunt of Oklahoma’s greed!
