Maaaaaan…that’s a pretty fast -- and fearless -- turtle.

Had a little excitement early this morning: earthquake at ~04:15 which woke my ass up. Epicenter reported to be near Decatur, TN along the New Madrid Fault. Initial 4.4 jolt; I didn’t feel the 3.3 aftershock but we heard it.

Whee!

Read that “regulators” in CA are considering a new tax on text messages…and that they’re considering making it retroactive for the last five years.

Tumbrels. Gibbets. Lime pits. Fire.

Of course we are, Fatwa. You don’t get to be the greatest state in the union by not being creative on the revenue side of things.

Earthquake? Wow. Unusual back there, isn’t it?

Watched this again the other night -- one of my favorite horror movies, but then I don’t like many. If you haven’t watched it, I heartily recommend it. Came out in 2001.

What do you think of Jeepers Creepers?

Hiya, Sven!

Earthquakes are certainly less-frequent ’round here, but the New Madrid Seismic Zone is responsible for four of the largest ‘quakes in recorded North American history.

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!

A 4.4 quake? That’s enough to wake you up (but not enough to get you up out of bed). I’m sure it was a new sensation to most everyone in the affected area.
