    Earthquake in Toronto

    There was a minor earthquake here in Toronto just a few minutes ago. Perhaps, the anti-globalists are preparing a new means to stop the upcoming G20 summit.

    That's only a preparation for the G20.

    You believe that He is an anti-globalist?
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    I think He is most likely indifferent to such small things as a possible total destruction of the entire Solar system with all the planets, the moons, and all the asteroids of the Oort cloud.

    Re: Earthquake in Toronto

    Let the media frenzy begin!

    As usualy, the disproportionate (over)reaction on part of the media in an attempt to generate a story out of nothing

    Toronto came through Wednesday afternoon's earthquake largely unscathed, although many people declared themselves to be shaken and stirred.

    Scotiabank, downtown Toronto: “The plants were shaking and it was quite distressing.”

    OMG the plants were moving! I need compensation for my trauma...

    Toronto is not on any thingy-whats-it-called, is it?
    So it can't have been a serious earthquake....

    So what are the anti-globalists planning?

    It was actually rather funny when five minutes after the tremor the internal broadcasting at work went on and a voice said: "A few minutes ago you have experienced a slight tremor. That was exactly what you felt - a slight tremor."
    The guy probably meant to refute our possible assumptions that we have felt a slight tremor, but in reality it was a dragon waving his wings over our building or a behemoth digging his way out of the basement enclosure, or something like that.

    Actually when it happened I thought it was my neighbours doing something stupid again (they tend to do stuff that makes a lot of noise etc)
    that's how "distressing" and "scary" it was for the whole 3 seconds
