The Shock Felt 'Round the Nam

So, who else felt the earthquake today? I was sitting on my loveseat, felt shaking, and then the apparently characteristic slight dizziness/disorientation that I attributed to the way the loveseat was shaking and not an earthquake. Until other people on Facebook mentioned it too.

Really, I'm going to let Facebook handle this post from here on.

Other notable statuses include people saying "deal with it." Okay, fine, we didn't really have injuries or damage, but this is the first time this has happened in 100 YEARS. This isn't the same thing as rain, or even Snowmageddon, which was ridiculous but handled pretty well by the Nam. This was an EARTHQUAKE. In PENNSYLVANIA. That shit is weird, no matter which way you spin it.

Mostly, though, we were trying to figure out why all our stuff was moving because let's be real, Fayette County, we didn't know what the hell was going on. My thoughts were: explosion at a gas well, robbers, or alien invasion. Apparently I'm not alone, because others assumed ghosts.

And no, God isn't displeased. This isn't a sign that we heathens need to change our ways or that it's the end of times. It's a sign of one thing and one thing only: SEISMIC WAVES.
