1. My first earthquake! I was sitting at the computer when the house I work in started to shake. I knew that the neighbors, in an adjoining apartment, were doing some painting and hammering, so that's what I thought of. Of course I didn't think "earth quake." I thought "Wow, this house must not have a very good foundation if people moving furniture next door makes everything shake. Then I happened glance at facebook and saw everyone talking about an earthquake. Baby slept through everything.
I think that this video of Strauss-Kahn's lawyer's news conference getting interrupted by the earth quake is pretty hilarious. My favorite bit is how the lawyers all grab each other and split, leaving everyone else behind.
