Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Those small earthquakes...weren't those great?

After the Northridge quake of '94 I got so that, were I seated during an aftershock, I could call out the amplitude to a tenth of a point.  I joked about having a calibrated ass.

I remember the same feeling the day after that one. While picking up all the spilled items in the kitchen, a 5.9 aftershock comes by and we ignored it except to call out our guesses.

Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
