Did anyone feel the earthquake today? I was at work when it happened and didn't feel anything. A friend sent me a text message asking if I felt it. At first I thought she was joking with me, but as I walked around the store I heard various co-workers talking about it. I'm pretty shocked that one happened and a little annoyed too. As crazy as it sounds I've always wanted to experience an earthquake just to see what it was like. Not a devastating one, but something mild would be quite the experience.

Yeah I've always wanted to be in an earthquake too. Not a big one, but just to see what it's like. I think we had a small one back in 1983. My dad said the blinds on his office windows rattled back and forth a bit. He was on the 26th floor.

Earthquakes rarely kill people. It's stuff falling on your head that kills you. :P
