    No, not the Japanese earthquake... no one cares about anime or furfags.

    I'm talking about the 5.8 earthquake, centered at Virginia, that was felt all the way to Atlanta, George and Toronto, Canada.

    It felt pretty big in central Jersey (everything in my apartment was wobbling) because I was at the very top floor of a tower.

    Good to know.



    But I agree with the above posters.

    What is 5,8 compared to 9+.

    It's like the weather or jersey shore, just log into facebook and you know that it happened.

    Not even close. Richter scale is base-10 log function scale, so 9.0 earthquake (Japan's) would be 1,000 times (10^(9-6)) more powerful than a 6.0 earthquake (current one in US east coast). Even then, it is extremely rare to get anything this strong in the US east coast (last one was 20-30 yrs ago?). A Verizon tower was damaged in central Jersey so cell phones don't work around the capital.

    sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, and paronomasia is highest form of wit. You want to guess who did which one :D

    Sauerkraut. It's stereotypical, sure, but they taste damn good together.

    Also, don't ask him unless he's aus Bayern.

    Japan gets hit by an earthquake that ravages their country, we hear about it for a few weeks.
    America gets hit by a smaller earthquake that wasn't nearly as bad and they will never stop whining about it.
