Boom, boom, boom... not going back to my room!

This sounds like one of those things in the prologue to a mega-disaster film. Clintonville, a small town in Wisconsin, has been experiencing odd booming sounds over the past three days, variably described as sounding like distant thunder, a door slamming, or and things like that.

Experts have been looking into the possibility of methane leaks in the town dump, unauthorized mining activities, and explosives usage, and I guess even fracking. But they haven't figured it out.

I hope it turns out to be nothing (or something to which it can be clearly attributed and then stopped), but for now the possibilities are — if media have taught us anything — as ominous as they are endless.

Mmm.... Bacon. 

Off the top of my head, I'm imagining the scenarios to 2012, Tremors (great film, by the way), or Gasland (the fracking* documentary), or a South Park episode on lactose intolerance.

* Autocorrect is apparently in the pocket of Big Gas, because it keeps changing fracking to tracking
