So, uh... yeah. We had

So, uh... yeah. We had an earthquake here last night. I was on Instant Messenger with my friend in LA at the time:

Friend In LA (1:39:21 AM): whatcha doin'
Anil Dash (1:39:31 AM): i am watchin' P. Diddy
Friend In LA (1:39:40 AM): ??
Anil Dash (1:39:44 AM): And I am infinitely more funky than this man.
Friend In LA (1:40:06 AM): who is P. Diddy
Anil Dash (1:40:22 AM): you're joking.
Anil Dash (1:40:28 AM): Puff Daddy?
Anil Dash (1:40:32 AM): Sean Combs?
Anil Dash (1:40:35 AM): Bad Boy?
Friend In LA (1:40:48 AM): I know who Puff Daddy is
Friend In LA (1:40:55 AM): who calls him P. Diddy
Anil Dash (1:40:55 AM): these are all the same man
Anil Dash (1:41:04 AM): he calls himself that, now
Friend In LA (1:41:08 AM): I know
Friend In LA (1:41:11 AM): really
Anil Dash (1:41:13 AM): :-)
Friend In LA (1:41:21 AM): why
Anil Dash (1:41:24 AM): Far be it from me to deny the man his name
Anil Dash (1:41:35 AM): also, it's the name of the song
Friend In LA (1:41:53 AM): huh
Anil Dash (1:42:17 AM): the video, it's called "DIDDY"
Anil Dash (1:42:57 AM): what the fuck....
Anil Dash (1:43:12 AM): the building here just shook
Anil Dash (1:43:25 AM): we don't have earthquakes
Anil Dash (1:43:29 AM): maybe it's the wind
Friend In LA (1:44:06 AM): haha
Anil Dash (1:44:09 AM): something very abnormal is going on
Anil Dash (1:44:20 AM): my first thought is that a plane must have hit something nearby
Friend In LA (1:44:37 AM): you're scaring me
Anil Dash (1:44:47 AM): yeah, i was kind of scared myself
Friend In LA (1:44:47 AM): what's happening
Anil Dash (1:44:55 AM): i don't know
Anil Dash (1:45:04 AM): it must just be some weird wind thing
Friend In LA (1:45:11 AM): is the building still shaking
Anil Dash (1:45:13 AM): no
Anil Dash (1:45:17 AM): it was just for like 10 seconds
Anil Dash (1:45:30 AM): hmm
Anil Dash (1:45:38 AM): everything looks normal outside
Anil Dash (1:47:14 AM): hmm
Anil Dash (1:47:31 AM): must've just been the wind
Friend In LA (1:47:43 AM): some wind
Anil Dash (1:48:04 AM): yeah
Anil Dash (1:48:17 AM): there was a big windstorm earlier
Friend In LA (1:48:25 AM): huhq
Anil Dash (1:48:28 AM): maybe it just hit the right speed to make the building shake
Anil Dash (1:50:49 AM): well, that was odd

I am thinking now that all we need to finish the items on the End Times checklist is a plague of locusts.
