    that shit was weak! anyone who experienced the one in 94 knows that a 5.4 or 5.8 whatever they're calling it really is just a lil shake, its gotta be at least a 6.5 to really start freakin out

    I was in a high rise on the 11th floor makin' copieeeesss. building had rollers so the sway was a bit more exagerated...2nd one ive been through in that building...it was nothing compared to the northridge earthquake though. That one was nasty.

    yea that shit seriously felt weak to me. I was walking in my office and noticed the celing shake for maybe 3 seconds. it was nothing, didn't even feel the ground shake. my dad's office building right near me in Burbank was CLOSED after that. I couldn't believe it. I didn't get to take the day off for it. we all went outside and that was the end of that.

    everyone around me just kept working through it...although it did last a while and we were waiting for a big jolt to hit. I figured if the power went out then I'd start to worry. So long as the copy machine didnt mind the quake I didnt either.

    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.
    Shut up. What a spew of bullshit.

    Not unless someone can come up with a piercing sound.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    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.

    Oh and PS-The San Andreas moves North/South. It is not actually the type of fault that is sliding under another. The worst you would see is that your drive to SF would become somewhat shorter.

    on the contrary, the earth "is" flat. california is really an island mass that was pushed up against the united states. it was sold to us along with alaska. alaska is attached to a continental plate so it stayed where it is, california wasnt, so we towed it in. it used to be called californe-i-a. (thats where the "nick name" came from) now whos smart?

    i will never really get the richter scale. isn't it something like a 6.0 is 100 times stronger than a 5.0? that seems like a big difference in strength for only going up 1 point overall.

    We had a 5.6 in Oregon back in 93 and it scared the piss out of me. Woke up to the house shaking and a heavy picture fell off the wall into my daughters crib, luckily she was in the habit of sleeping with me so she didnt get hurt. I can't imagine anything stronger, or even getting use to a quake and wanting it to be stronger.
