Well that was a good one, started at 00:58 and lasted around 10-15 seconds.

Anyone else experience it?

A few seconds of rumble beforehand, windows shook and some things fell of the bathroom shelf into the bath. Some minor damage to properties and people mainly from falling chimneys.

Where I live in Sheffield is on the edge of a fault line and I rocked in bed! (so that's what bedrock is)  [;D]

Science is continually evolving. Nothing is set in stone. Question everything and everyone. Always consider vested interests as a reason for miss-direction. But most of all explore and find answers that you are comfortable with

Yes, I know - but not sure of its pertinence - are you suggesting the lunar eclipse a week ago contributed to last night's earthquake?

I'm trying to imagine a 5 million blackbirds all in unison bashing their heads into the ground in some field up north .  [;D] [;D]

At least i now know where all the birds go during the night.

A blackbird can pull a worm but I doubt a bored chemist could pull a bird.

We like to be refered to as ladies.

bird is an accepted term for the female form in Essex... i've never had any trouble pulling a bird, but then it might be down to my exceptional looks.

The female members of the human race that I have seen in nightclubs have not, generally, been behaving in a ladylike manner. (I'm not saying I was generally much of a gentleman).
