So given that I just moved to the Bay Area from Michigan, how worried do I need to be about this stuff?

I mean if there's a big one, I'm farked and all my stuff is farked and that's just a thing, but how worried do I need to be about a 4.2 earthquake walking one of my monitors off the desk or knocking over my not-terribly stable bookshelf?

It would take something closer to a 5.0 to walk your monitor off the desk, unless you are right on top of the epicenter and/or your monitor is right on the edge of the table.

Just moved to L.A. from Minneapolis a month ago. Everyone back home clutched their pearls, and whispered "earthquakes!" at me all wide-eyed-like.

So, this was my first. And yeah, my chair at work moved a little, too. Ooooh, horrors. That's SO much worse than being buried in filthy, cursed snow 6 months out of the year. I'm totally moving back home, and stuff. Boy, howdy.

Earthquakes are a good sign from our planet. When our planets core cools down.....

The first thing you would notice is less volcanoes, and less earthquakes. Hey, that's fun -- but it's just the beginning. Slowly, wind and rain will begin to erode the Earth away. Very gradually, mountains will shrink. Grain by grain, they will crumble down, and get washed away by rain and rivers, into the sea. It will take hundreds of millions of years, that's the good news. But the bad news is that in the end, there will be no more land left! It's a bit strange to imagine, but when you level out all the land evenly across the globe, and smear it out onto the bottom of the sea, you would find nothing will be sticking out of the water. No continents, no rocks, no islands, not even a sand bank. All that will be gone forever.
