    there we go :P we were playing a strategy game (empire earth) on our computers over a crossover cable LAN (him on his laptop) and his superweapon got to my base and threw a earthquake spell at it and leveled it then he threw a nuke at my other base while i just fusion bombed his base into olbivion then the computer side that we but in pwnted us hard with hundreds of the first unit you get (machine gun infantry)... that game ended and we started playing UT99 (first person shooter) 5mins later the earthquake hit we fell checked the place for damage turned off computer (earthquakes can cause powersurges and spikes as it damages power places) and laughed for ages at out jinxed game

    then the staff evacuated the place until i explained that the house wasnt going to fall down

    I felt bugger all in the West Midlands.

    Mind you, at 01:00 a lot of folks would have been in their beddy byes for a few hours and well into their REM period of sleep which would have needed an earthquake of more than 5.2 on the Richter scale to wake them.
    Conversely I did feel the Earthquake of approx. 18 months ago which had Dudley as its epicentre as that occured at 05:00 and most folks would have been close to waking up and therefore not in as much of a deep sleep.

    Overall though, these occurences make me feel in awe of the raw power of nature.
    When an eathquake hits, it doesn't matter how rich,poor,thick or intelligent you are.
    You are just a plaything of Planet Earth !!

    Well it woke me and the wife (1st time she's felt the earth move whilst in bed.. Oooh Aargh missus).
    We are in Bolton about 100 miles from the epicentre of the earthquake.
