Boy Wonder Predicted Earth Quake

It seems that Dubai and several other regions in United Arab Emirates felt tremors not 30 mins back, the earthquake was predicted for the 26th by a school boy from sharjah named Basim Ahmed, in fact Khaleej Times ran a story about it a couple of weeks back. I know the kid and had actually thought of blogging about it and in fact I had interviewed Basim over the phone on the night of 25th. But since I was not convinced by his theory as most of the other people hearing it I did not publish it. He was sadly taunted by his school fellows and comments were made by his teachers in the school as there was no Earth Quake on the 26th. Basim had predicted another earthquake 3-4 years back which occured and was published about in the local news papers. Whatever makes this boy predict earth quakes seems to work as he’s done it twice with precision. We’ll probably be hearing about the guy in the local media in days to come.
