So, just the list of unnatural experiences to go through...

:nervous:

Quite a few sideways shakes on the quake. I thought the local gasworks had gone up.

Football.

Toon Army = Stripy Fat Half Naked Geordies

Hang on... if they are half naked, how can they be stripy?

I slept through the great storm of 1987 and went to college the next day. It was only when it was closed because of the storm that I finally noticed all the snapped off tree branches strewn in the streets etc.

In fact in New Zealand I experienced an earthquake in Wellington (5.5 IIRC). By the time I worked out why all the cars were shaking in the streets and stuff was shaking in the shop, it had finished!

Erm, apparently I’m not very good at noticing natural phenomena…:cute:

I remembered a lame joke about Beckham mistaking Tsunami for Toon Army (VAGUE assonance....)

4.8? In California, they call that a weekday.

Yeah, just another day in Cali. ;)

Then again our buildings and infrastructure are built to withstand earthquakes. They have to be. Doubt it is the same in England.

I've never been in a noticeable earthquake. The Midwest US isn't that active ... Although it has registered the biggest earthquake ever in the US.
