Haha yeah I thought the washer was having fits again. Then my buddy in Ottawa texted me. Different sort of experience.

We had a 3.0 earthquake in my area the other day and it was probably the biggest one I've ever experienced. It was the talk of the town afterwards

San Diego area is getting about a 3.0 a day right now.

If your buildings are built correctly, an earthquake is like a male streaker. You all talk and laugh and hope it doesn't last too long.

Earthquakes under about a 5.0 really don't bother me anymore. Once they get over 5 and are long, I get worried.

Yeah it wasn't really a concern, it was just a "what the ****?" moment because we never have earthquakes in Sweden. It was the first one I've felt where my first thought was "this must be an earthquake" instead of "man there must be a truck rolling by or something" which is what they usually feel like, but even those are limited to like once a year. It's definitely an interesting experience and if something bigger came along I'd probably be freaking out

Heh, virgins.

I liked the post where the guy said he dove under his desk. My first job in High School was at a tutoring center and my boss was from Ohio and had obviously never experienced an earthquake before. The first one she felt was while we were both in the office, it wasn't a bad one by any means but she was flipping out while I and most of the little kids just ignored it. She was petrified the rest of the day and even the slightest noise would cause her to jump out of her seat.

LMAO, 5.0 is nothing. I slept through the Northridge quake. If the big one ever hits I might soil my pants though.

Wow

The Northridge quake threw me back in my bed when I was trying to run for the door jam. I thought it was the big one.

To be fair to myself, this quake was powerful enough to take out a bridge and plunge it into a lake in Quebec, and considering I wasn't sure how powerful and how long this quake was going to be(let's not forget the fact that the only earthquakes I witnessed before this could've been passed off as a huge truck passing by the house), I thought that my diving under the desk was quite appropriate

Everyone else, including the rest of my family, ran out of their houses.

I think most people thought it might be an attack related to the summit.
