Re: Melbourne Shakes, 5.2 earthquake

It was recorded a 5.2 and shook for like 20 seconds. Were probably so scared because we are not used to this stuff

Re: Melbourne Shakes, 5.2 earthquake

The biggest one I've felt was a light shake that lasted 1.5 seconds

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Melbourne Shakes, 5.2 earthquake

People have been joking about it a lot, a bit in distaste considering the tragedies around the world, but I must admit I laughed.


And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: Melbourne Shakes, 5.2 earthquake (mini)

Melbournians? Are we still having shakes or is that just the wind?

Just the wind. It is pretty strong, so freaking cold in my place coz theres a small part of the window in the bathroom you cant shut
