About an hour West of Philly.


I would not have guessed that! I drove back to school in Cincy one time and got there a couple hours after the "big quake". I'm sorry I missed that. I want no part of the "BIG QUAKE" when it hits out west.

We had a 2.3 earthquake today which doesn't happen very often. The was one when I was on grade school, but I don't remember it. This is the first one I ever felt and heard. I can't imagine being in a serious one.

Neither a nor 2.3 or 9.3 earth quake will kill you.  Structures collapsing because they were not built to withstand an earth quake will

Unless a fissure opens up and swallows you whole.

 

Or you get caught in a landslide.

 

Or a tsunami gets you.

 

Or you die in the resulting fires.

 

Or a tree falls on you.

Fissures: trauma resulting from a fall
Landslides and trees:. Crushed to death
Tsunami: drowned
Fires:. Burnt to death

Again, not killed by the earth quake itself

I'm more shocked to find out he's 91.  He is one healthy-looking nonagenarian.

Plastic surgery, ya think? Anyway, you're right. He's a handsome man for his age.

TIL that left turns make up less than 10% of all UPS truck turns. This policy was put into place in 2004 and has saved UPS 10 million gallons of fuel.

Sounds like honey bees may do better on some wonderlic tests than some QBs.  Are honey bees limited by "social environment" like some QBs?
