Oh my. I just saw the news. We had a country-wide earthquake. I didn't even notice. I vaguely heard something about it this morning but it didn't sink in.

Anyone experience this? It didn't affect Deptford, although.. I would probably have slept through it.

We never have big earthquakes! O_o

Just like those people who "just knew" there was something funny about the man next door who happened to be a serial killer? Heh.

I felt nothing. Probably too far away. What was it? 5.6?

only 5.2 ?? Those occur almost daily in California. People there don't even stop to notice unless the quake is at least 6.0. One of these days we expect California to be like UK -- slowly drifting out to sea. I've lived in my area (about 1500 miles from California) for about 30 years and have felt an earthquake only once.

Well martians walk around mars all day, but they don't do it here. If they did we would start a thread about it.
It's unique for this region.
I remember there was one a few years ago. Not strong at all though. Big talk. And then there are hurricanes. Not much of them in this region either. More frequent than earthquakes. But not as much anymore.

Not really -- there are places around the world that have bad things happen a lot worse then we have -- we have a few hurricanes on the east coast, earthquakes on the west coast and tornadoes in the midwest (where I live). I'll bet India gets hit with bad weather a lot worse than we do. Only had one valcano explode in the 48 states in my lifetime that I recall (hawaii has them often).

Cars -- yes they're bigger and they guzzle a lot more petro too

meals -- they are probably bigger which is why we are fatter. If there is ever a world-wide famine we will be the only people on earth who will survive.

Depends on the source. If the source of the famine were some kind of blight (disease sense) or devastation upon our fields, we'd probably go down first.

And can it be described as a famine if food is available, but the means to transport it isn't? I was reading a book a while back which had the premise of a massive solar flare hitting the earth, and the difficulty of transporting goods and people without the tech we've become used to was one of the things it touched on.
