If the title offends you, you should probably stop reading now. But it will be your loss. Blaghag is, YES, a woman in science blogger who got a little irritated at the Iranian cleric who said that "Women who dress provocatively and tempt people into promiscuity are to blame for earthquakes,"

True scientist that she is Blaghag has designed an experiment. As she explained “On Monday, April 26, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. ... I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that's your preferred form of immodesty.” She is then going to check for tremors. Hey she's a double major in genetics and evolution-- she will figure it out.

For me- I'm wearing my old EFF t shirt. Sadly they currently don't have any more. It's black with great designs on the back, it's tight with a tasteful v neck and I look so good in it, watch out fault lines

PS If you think this is demeaning to women or earthquake victims, be they women or men (and obviously I don't), read her post . She seems exactly the kind of young woman we need in science.
