    5.9 in Virginia...and I felt it in NY...and didn't really care. In fact a lot of people in NY didn't really care...

    well, the news cares. A lot. So much so the Libyan story doesn't exist anymore.

    Stop losing your minds over a natural occurring that has not happened on the East Coast in this magnitude in a while. Shame on you MSNBC. Shame on you Faux News. Shame on you CNN and BBC and all the other medias...you are making this a bigger story than it should be.


    Anyway yeah...who felt the fucking thing? Who cares?

    You guys don't know what real earthquakes are like. Then again, people from California say the same thing about us Washingtonians.

    Seriously man - If you were to listen to the facebook chatter you would think a 9.5 just hit.

    Anyone hurt?

    I was too busy having sexy dreams to even feel a tiny bit of it.

    I haven't seen anything on CNN about it. And of course Canadian news is covering it. What else is more important. Hockey season starts soon?

    Any break from hearing about libya on repeat for the last 2 months is a welcome break for me.

    Didn't feel it in london though. I was out runnin with my dogs in the woods so I doubt I'd feel the little midget earthquake :(

    And ugh you made me lol.

    And pretending you don't care doesn't make you cool. We don't ever get to experience earthquakes here so naturally when one happens despite how small, people get excited. Get over it.

    An eartthquake felt in canada and a quality Ugh post all in the same day. 2012 doesn't seem so far fetched anymore.

    First, I'm not pretending. Second, I don't even care about not caring. That's just how I roll.



    But seriously, most of my friends said it wasn't anything big or even something to get in a stir over.
