    Felt The Earth Move In Bed Last Night.

    5.9 magnitude earthquake near Mae Sai, Chiang Rai, Thailand and Mandalay, Myanmar : July 21, 2022 17:07

    An earthquake at 00:07

    If I'd been sitting on a chair I might not have noticed it, but the bed was definitely wobbling for about eight seconds, and not because of the cans of Stella Artois.

    Then I must have fallen asleep quickly - having all my favourite podcasts taken over by women's football will do that.

    Anyone else notice it?
    at 50 something, you're not a millennial any more.

    Yup, upstairs in bed. Was thinking it's unusual as usually only feel them when high up in a condo.


    Bugger. Better check me condos haven't collapsed.

    Not that anyone's fokin' renting the bastard things.

    Normally you dont when you live 2500 kilometers away.

    But your post count did go up one post.

    That wasn't the question though, was it?

    I'm really not interested in a high post count.

    I was awake and checked my phone at 12:30. Noticed there was an alert from the Googles.

    But I never noticed anything.

    Yep, I felt the earthquake here in the UK.
    However I wasn't drinking the wife beater though
    Getting up the stairs was a fucking nightmare, 2 steps forward and one step back, ended up falling asleep in the basement.

    Arose to carnage, I reckon the magnitude was possibly a 6.9.

    Hopefully they will be no after shocks
    Shalom

    Cyrille is appealing for witnesses, because the person he was sleeping with didn’t feel anything!

    Apparently the tremor struck when Sweden scored in the 92nd minute .
    Cyrille had one hand on his stella artois and other on his remote control

    Great building standards are not at the forefront with those pics, looks like the ceiling battens were held on by chewing gum.
