    I live in SE Penna., about 30 mins W of Philly. The quake shook the building I work in so badly it was unreal: the bookcases and desks were clattering and jumping about for 10-15 seconds in three or four waves of tremors. My building was evacuated, as were all the other area buildings occupied by the company I work for. Although a lot of people are making light of it, I can assure you that in some areas it was no joke. (What`s shown in this video is nothing, admittedly.)

    Look, its just different for us on the east coast. We don`t usually feel earthquakes so its interesting to us. Of course you can see the absolute horror on his face when it happens. Hell, it takes him 3 seconds after the initial shock to even process what -might- have just happened. Of course, God forbid you get an inch of snow in the west. Everything closes down and people panic claiming you`re snowed in. We feel an earthquake, pause for a few seconds, go "did you feel that?" and go on with the rest of our day. Its the media who`s having a field day with the idea anyhow.

    I`m happy it was just a little earthquake for you East-Coasters :) I live on the West Coast, but up in Canada so they terrify me- but his reaction wasn`t exactly spectacular- I wanted to see him freak out- not just stop playing guitar and walk off screen .__.

    "Hmm... Is that shaking..? I can`t really tell, it`s so miniscule."

    And then the white house and pentagon were evacuated.

    I`ll never get over that.

    The epicenter was in Virginia so of course DC was going to feel it a little more intensely than someone in Brooklyn. There are cracks the mutha F-ing Washington Monument now.

    I found it funny. Maybe it`s just me but the joke here is everyone overreacting from an Earthquake that barely was.

    People are saying the best part of this is when nothing happens. But we see this crap on TV every day. Nothing happens there either, yet we continue to watch. What`s that all about
