The Cali commit I made was about the number of people with the attitude of "Stop being a pansy, little 5.8 quake is nothing."
Instead teasing us East Coasters maybe we should be using this as a teaching tool to get more people to prep. Laughing does nothing
but piss people off and turn them away from what we are trying to do. Hell look how pissed you guys got after I said bite my a$$.
Maybe I went about it the wrong way, but you guys didn't like that as much as I didn't like the attitude. The fact is that Cali buildings
are build to withstand quakes, VA buildings are not.
I can understand if someone was asleep, but working is no excuse things like this are how muggings happen. If you didn't notice
the Earth moving, chruch bells ringing, chandaleers and ceiling fans swinging about, and water in glasses or fish tanks splashing
around...well how exactly are you going to notice the mugger walking up? Hopefully this makes you think instead of getting mad and
just disregarding what I'm trying to say.
I think its perfectly fine to laugh at the Eastern people, not used to earthquakes.
I haven't seen any reports of anyone dying or getting any serious injures.
Of course we North Eastern people laugh at people in the south when they get a little bit of snow.
Though it certainly isn't funny when someone there gets into an accident because of ice.

I slept right through it myself. My mom certainly felt it though. She said the keys, hanging on a hook, were swaying back and forth.
