last major one I felt was back in 2000, when one of the same magnitude rocked Napa at fuckin 1:30am. I remember hearing everything (including a giant glass hutch) falling over in the apartment below and the lady who lived there screaming. Then I got up to check on my sister and saw a record cabinet had fallen over on her, then we went outside and waited for like half hour in the freezing cold for a friend (our dad was outta town that weekend) to come get us.

Nothing funny or comedic or cool about earthquakes.

I was living in Northridge when that one hit and my friend who was living at the Northridge Meadows got injured badly.

My other friend had his chimney collapse and land in bed next to him. Luckily it didn't land on him.

Everything I owned at the time was destroyed. My building was red tagged and I couldn't go back and salvage anything.

God knows I tried but I was escorted out by the National Guard.

I hear ya. Back in 2000, I think some young boy died because he was asleep on the floor by his chimney when the quake struck, and one of the bricks fell on his head and killed him. It ain't funny.

Our chimney in our current house is still capped off and unrepaired from that last quake.

I'm housesitting in a big home here in Rancho Mirage and was taking advantage of the acoustics here, playing my guitar. I thought I was the one causing the rolling until that jolt. Now I'm wondering what my little condo full of eclectic decor and precariously balanced shit looks like...5.6 in Chico Hills?

Lame. Why am I the only person who didn't get to feel it?? Everybody in my office felt it except me! I am in Beverly Hills just below Mulholland.

I love earthquakes, but probably only because it has been such a long time since the Northridge one that my memory has gotten hazy. I do remember that sounded and felt like a freight train coming into the house and that terrified me when it was happening (we were less than 3 miles from Northridge). It gave me an instant panic attack...which was probably exacerbated by the fact that I had been on a 3-4 day meth bender with no sleep...which continued for another two days cause I was too scared to go back in and sleep inside our moderately damaged house. I sat in my driveway wrapped in a blanket watching TV with an equally tweaked neighbor. Fortunately, those day are long behind me.

I have been saying for months we are due for an earthquake, and I have to go and miss the first good one in a long time...gah!

Yeah well everybody here is ok thank god but still..... not that i take everything serious and this earthquake was not strong here in the valley but earthquakes are pretty fucking serious. We can laugh this one off for the people that didnt feel it that hard but i dont think we should find it humorous that someone had an earthquake related death. a 6.0 earthquake can hit in a lot of places in cali especially so cal.

I must have been swiveling in my chair or something. I am sure that it didn't feel anywhere near the 5.6 they say it was, at least up here in the hills. But a messenger guy who came up here to pick something up shortly after said that he felt it while he was driving down Wilshire Blvd.

I was in the middle of interviewing a candidate for a position in our office when it hit. I always thought I would be petrified being in an earthquake (the only other one that I had felt was while I was sleeping and it woke me up), but it was kind of a cool in a lot of ways.

This is some good fucking news for me. I get to go back to CALIFORNIA(sarcasm, this is terrible)... Why did it have to hit on the nst/nph 095's.... For all of you that don't speak hieroglyphic nerd, that's the fault friction point, but it means I likely get to go back down to Harvey Mudd, and re-align all the fucking little instruments that were disrupted. Like you guys actually care about my life, lulz, BUT if I do go, I will be able to tell you all specific information about the earthquake, and when they expect the next one to be(with an estimated error of like 20%, so the total error of the error is like 45%, thats still like a 35% chance that they are dead on, nothing ever quite adds up to 100% these days.)
That would be especially bad for you Randy, because I don't have any ability to get oxy down there at the current moment and If I do go, my work will expect me to clean up all other chores that I was putting off until later in fall, but it does mean more money.

It wasn't in downtown La, and so the shock wouldn't travel through the mountain range(a deformity caused by the intersection between a very very very old sheet and the san andreas fault) north of la into burbank very well at all, I am surprised you did feel it. But down at the epicenter, it was enough to scare some people, and thats really what counts.

Earthquakes are all luck. What I really mean by that is that, nothing can be official in an earthquake of any size, there are infinite possibilities to consider, that death, transportation and fueling(food + oil mainly) issues don't necessarily take effect right away or even at all.

You should stick around California, for about 10 more years, if you want to feel the real strength of an earthquake again. The 1994 is a perfect example of a good shake, But the fact is there is enough core pressure down there for whatever the goddamned reason is that if 1/10 of its pressure were to blow out the San Andreas Fault, the Mississippi would run backwards for a couple of minutes. If all the pressure is released via the San Andreas, then you would get this "Island California" deal. California would be blasted like a fucking hockey puck into the pacific (well not that similiar but, a few hundred miles at least.)

But what you should all be worrying about is not earthquakes. MegaVolcanic activity in Yosemite, over last 2 years pressure activity has increased beyond the limit they understood was possible. We are due for an explosion no later than 2029. It will send the world into an Ice Age, this doesn't mean apocalypse, It just means things will change. A LOT. Everything has to move towards the equator to survive, its just like that shitty shitty movie the day after tomorrow, but not like that at all. It would not be that cold that you instantly freeze in New York.

Are you sure you are not meaning to say "Yellowstone", or maybe "Mammoth"? As far as I know, the volcanos at "Yosemite" are long extinct, but Mammoth is likely to erupt within the next 50,000 years. Also, Yellowstone was a "super volcano" a long time ago and it's possible that it could erupt again, although it's thought that since North America has been moving over the hot spot, it could be farther west when it does erupt.

OMG. You are sooo smart and cool!!!! Can I hang out with you????

.....Not really.

You barely even qualify as a geek. Everybody loves to say the a part of California is going to break off an fall into the ocean. Let me ask you this...WHERE THE FUCK IS IT GOING TO GO????
Into some void? Is it going to break off and land under water? There is another plate there, and even in the event that the San Andreas had a massive slip, the likelihood that it would move more that a few inches (which is HUGE, by the way) is pretty slim. The theory that the west coast could possibly fall into the ocean and disappear forever or for that matter, become an island, is erroneous at best. It is all attached, Bright Guy. The Earth is not flat, I think we proved that many years ago.

This is silly. You always choose earthquake over nuclear bomb, dude. 1906 in SF was a 7.8. It killed a little over 3,000 people. And that's in a city with a denser stacking of population in higher buildings, all of which are on a fucking 45 degree angle to begin with. A 9.0 would destroy tons of buildings and probably kill less than 1/5 as many people as need to die for So Cal to be tolerable.

RotationSlimWang
08-01-2008, 08:29 PM
No a 9.0 would kill everything, its a huge difference between a 7.8 and a 9+ as I am sure you know. Its about 32x as powerful in energy released, A 7.8 is destructive sure, no where near as close as destructive as a hydrogen bomb obviously.

A 9.0 is about 39-35 gigajoules of immediate energy released
The median immediate Nuclear Bomb energy released is about 15,000 - 20,000 terajoules thermal and 20,000 terajoules kinetic.


So obviously the median Nuke is more powerful and therefor thought to be more deadly, but both will kill everything. Just the 9.0 Earthquake would do it overtime. Slowly things like disease, famine, and riot would all break out. I would rather be turned into ionized gas particles instantaneously than have some rican stab me for my tv and die of gangrene or suffocate in my own collapsed house.

But the earthquake is environmentally friendly, so I guess its all about whats best for the earth.

If you're proposing that a 9.0 would cause 32x the actual damage I am calling a general bullshit despite understanding very little to none of the significance of those measurements in practical terms. 32x force will not equate to or exceed the same factor in terms of actual damage--the force is not concentrated, depends on far too many variables to effectively predict whether it would kill 30,000 or 300,000 or 3,000,000 or send part of Cali floating off into the ocean.

I absolutely reject the premise that it would "kill everything." By what means it would do so except the collapse of buildings and other structural facets I cannot imagine, and if you really think the rioting following a quake would be worse to endure than whatever follows an H-bomb, well, that's fucking silly.

See, my grandfather worked in nuclear weapons development for a while as some of you have heard me bring up, probably multiple times. Specifically he was heavily involved in the course of study that raced to insure America would invent the next evolution of atom bomb before anyone else. He spent most of a decade in the course of study that helped to birth the hydrogen bomb, switching projects shortly before some breakthrough that finally gave us a power that made A-bombs look mild.

I asked him once when I was young about whether I should be afraid of nuclear war with Russia. He told me there was no point--being in the middle of New Jersey we were only 60 miles tops from the detonation target in NY and even if not for NY we were only a couple hundred miles from DC.

"But, Grandpa, I thought an H-bomb blast radius was definitely less than 200 miles--you'd told me the exact figure and it was between 100 and 150 miles (in 1990 or so). Would the radiation really be inescapable?" He laughed slightly and explained that what practically no one but other scientists and military figures were permitted to know about hydrogen weapons that made them even more worrisome than just the 100-plus times size of the blast:

We wouldn't even have to worry about radiation poisoning because everyone within at least twice the blast radius would suffocate very quickly. The magnification of the explosions witnessed in Japan through this new technology created a bonus devastation in that an H-bomb going off in DC would consume all the oxygen for up to 300 miles in every direction or so. New Jersey would have all the air sucked out of it into the detonation and the atmosphere wouldn't stabilize in anywhere close to soon enough for anyone to live unless they had a private oxygen supply.


So bring the quake. I'll take my chances, maybe get lucky and be outside when it happens. Always take the gamble when the sure thing is a fucking H-bomb, Little Miss Scientist.

I would take my chances with the quake. The overall fall-out from a nuclear blast would create problems for so many reasons as Randy pointed out. Also, an earthquake will probably be limited a smaller regional area while a nuclear attack will more than likely have a recourse and other cities would be annihilated. I don't believe an attacking entity would limit itself to L.A. in its quest to destroy the U.S.

Also I ain't exactly that afraid of a building collapsing on me compared to nuclear blasts. People survived the WTC collapses for fuck's sake. My duplex ain't exactly terrifying me more than Terminator 2's dream sequence, sorry.

You are right about what we feel though, its is all a percentage, it doesn't necessarily mean anything but, I again would take the nuclear bomb, because I would not want to die I an earthquake which is very fucking likely for me, I have plenty of loose and sharp objects around my house that would impale me. Also if an H-bomb were to go off, people would think twice about war and military. If an earthquake occurs, people will just think twice about money, money has given me nothing but debt and greed.

I got your solution: get rid of all the shit that could potentially impale you. Duh. And I doubt people's big concern would be "Man, maybe we should reconsider our military exploits across the globe" in the wake of an H-bomb blast; they'd more likely be caught up in the minutiae of sorting their lives out before their inevitable impending deaths. And for those on the other end of the country, assuming there wasn't a simultaneous attack near them, they'd probably want to retaliate in kind, which would also go against your retarded "think twice about war and military" statement. Additionally, I'm sure that in the aftermath of a massive earthquake, the first concern would be about the lives of those who were in the effected area, not how much money it's going to cost to take everything back to how it was before.

Wow wasted you really think So Cal is better off with a nuclear blast then a 9.0 earthquake huh?? its been said before but ill say it again. A lot of people would die with an earthquake, somewhere probably along the thousands especially around the L.A. area, but MILLIONS would die with a nuclear blast. Not to mention how sick people would become by the radiation that will be swept across after the blast. Hell, all of Los Angeles would disappear. How is that better than a quake??

Why is this even discussed?? maybe you would prefer a nuclear blast because god only knows whats going on in your disturbed mind but im sure 99.9% of the population here would prefer a quake.

And as for your place. Go to your local hardware store and buy a hammer and a sack of nails. Nail everything dangerous in your house that could fall on top of you and crush your small childish body. Duct tape EVERYTHING down. It may not look too appealing but its safe.

A moderate earthquake occurred at 8:18:42 PM (PST) on Friday, December 5, 2008.
The magnitude 5.5 event occurred 26 km (16 miles) WNW of Ludlow, CA.
The hypocentral depth is 6 km ( 4 miles).


Felt it here in Palm Springs.

It was so insanely small for me here in LA. It felt like...a 3 year old trying to shake me awake.

The 6.5 in 94 was terrifying for me as a little person.

However, is it weird that I'm looking forward to the big one? Just so we can get it over with and be clear for the next 50 or so years after

Hahaha im sorry that you were made fun of and got a nickname out of it all.

Ive been through plenty of earthquakes, but they still make me stop whatever Im doing and pay attention to my surroundings. However, the only way Im goin for cover is when stuff starts falling. Im not gonna sit there and laugh it up while its happenin, but im not gonna duck for cover until there is an imminent threat.

I can understand that. After enduring something for long enough, it's not scary anymore.

You know what's not at all scary? Hurricanes. The news in the west tries to make it sound scary for the east coasters - but it's really just a bunch of drunk people sitting on balconies, laughing as the power lines blow out.

Almost everything comes back to the misconceptions of liberal media.
