I NEARLY FILLED MY PANTS!

Recommended Posts

Here I was, browsing the pages of LEF in the early hours as you do when suddenly my pc, window and chair started to shake!!! Thought the riot police had smashed through the front of the house but after only a few seconds all was still and quiet again! Absolutely bricked it!! :lol:

Glad to hear I am not the only one being spooked by eathquakes! Though I guess they are somewhat more unusual in Nottingham than they are here.

There is one almost every day somewhere in Japan and more or less every week there is one here that has me ready to dive under the desk. Take a look at this web site. Along with weather statistics we also get eathquake statistics.

The development centre I work in is built in an extinct volcano (we even have 2 tunnels to go through to get in and out of the complex, just like in James Bond movies!) that is situated on the intersection of 2 major fault lines. A brilliant bit of business planning I thought!

I felt a small tremor, attributed it to the red wine. :lol:

well that explains the weird dream..

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Yeah woke me up and I was looking round the house looking for the burglar! Only thing that had moved was my Lotus! I keep it in the garage without the hand brake on and it had moved forward slightly and was pushing on the garage door, opening it a bit.

I felt bugger all :D

That's just what my Mrs says after the earths moved for me!

Look what Q's brought us. Isn't it nice!

At least that explains the red wine stain on the (white) carpet this morning :D

I slept through it completely, I always seem to miss these things. Back in the eighties when the infamous "Apparently a lady rang the BBC and said she heard there was a hurricane on the way. Well, don't worry if you're watching, there isn't." hurricane I slept soundly all night long only to wake up & find half the neighbourhood collapsed!

It was pretty harsh here. I was just going to bed and the Mrs was in bed. The whole house shook for about 10 secs and the dog went spare!

Kids woke up scared but I have been in a stronger one in the far east before so knew what it was.

Question: Can they blame it on global warming? :D

Sounds like a good idea for a new UK tax.

Clearly it was caused by the removal of crude oil from under the North Sea, this in turn warms up the ocean, and the wind pattern changes as a result, causing trees in Brazil to be timbered for corn crop, causing birds to get fatter and not fly and cows to pass more gas, so the ozone hole is getting larger due to the lack of CO2, or the CO2 is creating the issue or something like that, and the whole thing can be corrected with taxes really, if spent on the correct prodject....

...so I hear. Hahahaha...... Now, all of you send money to me so I can stash it on my secret island or I'll fire up my Earthquake machine again.... Wooohahahaha....

(yes, I am looooosing it)
