What's the time limit on lame jokes like this?

It shouldn't shock me, most everyone chooses security over making it for themselves, the masses just follow the piper even if they lead them to a cliff.

They're especially good with my morning coffee. The hint of saline goes well with my grapefruit.

Maybe the earthquake will shoot the tornadoes up into a cyclone and we'll have a Cyquakicane?

I'm not sure if you're trying to make lame geology puns or not.

Isn't it due to the fact that the bed rock in the east is much better at conducting the waves than the jumbled mess that is the pacific subduction zone?

Most of the old Republicans felt nothing.

Ding, ding, ding! Give the man the fuzzy dice!

Geologists have known this for a long time. Why this is news is beyond me.

When's New Madrid going to go off again? Another 8.X there will make Tohoku look trivial.

I remember feeling that goofy D.C. earthquake all the way over in Madison, WI. I don't know if it helped that I was on the 14th floor of a narrow building at the time, but the floor started subtly at a regular interval, reminding me of the Missouri earthquake from a few years before. I turned to the person next to me and said "that wasn't an earthquake, was it?", and then immediately my boss who lives in D.C. called and started telling me about the quake.

you have pee hands: When's New Madrid going to go off again? Another 8.X there will make Tohoku look trivial.


Get in line, Cascadia's up next. There was a 6.3 off the west coast of Vancouver island last night, following the 7.7 + aftershocks up in Haida Gwaii last month. Were they stress relief, or foreshocks to something even bigger? Stay tuned to find out.

Oh, I am not falling for that one! I say when it's going to happen, and when it doesn't you will throw me in jail! Lesson has been learned!

"Farther", not "further".

4.3 today in eastern KY. I felt it here in Louisville as a weird little shimmer under my feet. The New Madrid quakes are something of a fascination for me; I've read every historical account I can lay hands on- so it's possible I may overreact when we get these little ones. My first thought was, "ooh, quake!," followed by, "ah, damn, that's all?" Of course, when we finally do get another major one, it's going to be biblical in its destruction- nothing here is built to handle it.
