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.
Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.
I want to buy you a hooker.
Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
Not unless someone can come up with a piercing sound.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
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.
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.
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?
Everyone said they felt it And I happened to be in Upland at the time of the earthquake.
I want to see wasted's responses. I actually know somewhat what he's on about, but he's obviously more informed than I (or most of you) are.
He's the JPL guy, no?
Either way, I don't really want to know wht the future is for California earthquake wise...or maybe I do...
I hope we have a good shaker here in nor cal soon...it seems like we haven't felt one in forever...I had no idea you guys had one until this morning...I've been in the cuts for 5 day enjoying the northern coast!!!
Bring on the 7's!!! 94 was a 6.7
Loma Prieta 6.9...I remember that one being a lot bigger???
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.
