It wasn't my intention to make it into one.
I thought this was just a small Earthquake and people were being whiny.
Now that I have looked into it I see that it's a little more serious than that.

Very true.
In space, no one can hear you scream unless your transmitting it on the right radio frequency.

Undulating walls? It was just a 5.9. You might as well have told me your house was washed away after a sprinkle.

But American buildings are made of wood, chipboard and wishes. I could totally see them waggling all over the place.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I mean, on the East Coast REPRESENT! buildings aren't retrofitted to handle earthquakes unless it's the White House or something. They just don't happen here.

Apparently the Washington Monument got a little messed up. They closed it down to repair a bunch of cracks.

So apparently there was a minor earthquake in the Netherlands yesterday evening. Only 4.5 on the Richter scale, but still. That sort of thing isn't supposed to happen here. The epicentre was too far south to be caused by the winning of the natural gas.
I live relatively far away from the epicentre, so I didn't notice. Probably because I was playing TF2 at the time. But my brother and my mom did notice a very slight tremor.
Of course, me being the only person in the Netherlands on the forum at the moment, the thread title isn't really applicable here, but I thought I'd post this anyway.

Isn't great distance from the Netherlands?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

No, she's from Finland. The only Dutch members are Celdur, Xenomorph, and me, as far as I know. Xeno hasn't been here for half a year, and Celdur's in Canada at the moment.

I'm pretty sure there was just an earthquake near me.

It woke me up.

-EDIT- Apparently it was only 3.3, but it was a mile away and like a tenth of a kilometer underground.
