You'd dislike them even more if they chose to all arrive together as one, instead of lotsa itty-bitty groaners.

Stress-relief is always better than breakage.

I'm a prepin' fool... Got my 7k generator, just waiting for the big one... Me and my wine that is. Costco has a really good chateau ste Michelle Indian wells cab and a great Kirkland signature series cab (mountain curvee) from napa... The Kirkland cab and big bottle cab will do in a earthquake too...

The bikes are upright. The house is still on the foundation. The livestock are calm. Serena is still on the mantle. All is well in the west.

Yeah, downtown on rollers. It's a little weird that a six story building is on rollers but it works. The windows didn't come crashing down like they did about 10 years ago. But since I'm about 100' from the cliff, if we get a really, really big one I'm counting on at least one of you FFs to bring a hose down there to give me some air.

I was under my Suburban up on a lift. Never felt a thing. Couldn't figure out why my phone was getting blown up by the family until I got home!

You must be losing it. I was standing 20 feet from you and felt it. It shook the whole building.
