So I was sleeping blissfully unaware when the room started vibrating like a scene from a haunted movie. I am a heavy sleeper so managed to sleep through it.
The magnitude was about 7.2!!
Had the epicenter not been in the desert, I would not have been here posting this topic.
So how many have you ever been a witness to an earthquake and are you aware of the safety tips?
Well, I have, only to realize that it was a mega snake beneath my bed. I am told that it usually happens most especially when one is a heavy sleeper.
Mega snake?! Oh my... I wonder if that ended your heavy sleeping habits.
Not really, I only put my safety tips right. By making a short-list of my dreams on the night. However, I am not sure whether it can work for a 7.2 magnitude. 'Sister, that was a real shake!'
dont remind me about earthquake...i have been victim of it and one minute can change one's life...

My girlfriend told me the earth moved for her last night - I wonder was there an earth quake in Ireland

Thankfully we are fine, since the epicenter was in a desert and it was about 80 km underground, that reduced the intensity of the quake substantially.

Here is a place where you can talk about your dreams (the nighttime kind) and whether they mean anything or not. All kinds. Silly, scarey, frustrated, sexy and on and on. See, no one wants to listen or talk to me about my dreams in real life, so I figure here, it could happen.For...

To me, Obama seemed tired and distracted and Mitt seemed energized. (Of course, not knowing what the "job" entails and how hard change comes could account for some of that.) My husband, who is a Republican, is convinced that Obama planned the whole thing (for some yet unknown...
