We didn't feel a thing in Texas, but then Rick Perry was standing on the NE border with his arms crossed and a look of determination on his face.

Been to California many times, but never experienced an earthquake (at least not to my knowledge), however based on some of the personal accounts I've heard concenrning this one, I'm betting that a few of the past episodes wherein I thought I might be having a flashback or a stroke, just might have been the result of tectonic plate shifting.

No, I'm sorry, the earth didn't move for me, you'll have to try harder next time.

I was about a quarter mile from Littlek in Kendall Square in Cambridge, and no one in my office felt anything. We found out about it happening from somebody who was goofing off online, which as we all know trumps personal experience these days.

1:08 am. Strong aftershock.
This continuing series of them is not going to be good for our mental health.

@Region Philbis,
Just as funny and with much less of a chance that someone could be offended.

I'm not offended by the other one, but I winced a bit when I saw it.

@Finn dAbuzz,
I didn't make it, of course, but I think it was made to make people wince a bit...and think a bit...about the grand scale of things when it comes to suffering a natural disaster. Like people in Bangladesh who are already living in grass huts and are hit by a cyclone/tsunami, etc, etc, blah, blah. Like that...Kind of a bleeding heart thing, I think. Anyway, I didn't make the image. I just chuckled at it.
