    • @kanns01 I can tell you are not one of the usual residents here this event would have caused a fury of text messages and comparisons how it was much stronger than the last and a competition whose lights or furniture / appliances moved the most.

  • Those buildings there are like adobe.
    I would expect them to crumble real easy.
    I went scuba diving about where the red dot is.
