    • crazydog

      You have to wonder if anyone working at AT&T ever gets sick of sucking

      • Joe Dinger

        im the only one of my friends that has at&t, and i was the only one who could make calls

        • thom

          Or do you guys mean because you have an iPhone.
          It might not be the carrier but the device.

        • beeline

          Agreed with Joe here. I was outside my office in Arlington and myself and others were able to use ATT iPhones while the Verizon iPhone users couldn't do anything

    • sarcasm

      One of my friends told me "phones arent working because the earthquakes knocked over the towers!" -___-

    • gozer

      I had this same thought when i was trying to call someone!

    • MacNCheesePro

      If you're a geek like myself, you would have Skype app and a Skype account on your mobile device (in my case, iPhone) and you would use the data lines to make calls instead of the traffic ridden voice lines. I was the only person on a cell phone right after it happened that was able to over react about the earthquake to everyone I knew that had a land line!

  • ProfessorJive

    Do you remember where YOU were when the great east coast quake of 2011 hit?

    I do. I was on a beach, saying, "that was awesome."

    • itsjustme

      I was running from my house thinking that my house was finally collapsing. But no, I just looked like an idiot.

  • jaynecobb2

    there was an earthquake yesterday

    • Firefighter23

      No shit Sherlock/Detective Colombo/Other Detectives I can't think of.

    • Travis

      It's written like a statement, but I'm reading it as a question… hmmmm

  • AMB

    I feel as though some of you are staring to make fun of me…

  • Biggus Diccus

    I work on the 6th floor in a 10 story building in Richmond, VA and I will tell you it had me freaked for about 15 seconds. Since earthquakes are so rare in these parts my first thought was that is was a blast wave from a huge explosion. I was looking towards DC for a mushroom cloud.

    • I love the Chive


    • Dunny_

      Yeah, I'll give you the 15 seconds of freak out since I thought a forklift was trying to break down the wall in my office here in Harrisburg.
      It's the surveying of "damage" anywhere outside of VA that annoys me.

      • hMMMM

        I work on the 36th floor in the City and I didn't even know an earthquake took place until the building fire safety director made the announcement.

    • Sizzle

      I work in downtown DC, within viewing distance of the Capitol.

      I thought the same thing.

    • float

      all a bunch of big fat stanky hairy pussies…

      • Jen

        im in crofton md and jumped up and stood in the doorway screaming. fucking right im a pussy.

        • DaddyD

          If your pussy needs kisses to calm it down, please let me know …

        • float

          hahahaha, fucking pussy

        • Joe pancake

          Wooot crofton! i'm in edgewater!
          drop me a line if your hot

          • Jen

            where in edgewtaer? i'm at the hookah spot all the time

      • Stick

        Damn, straight. NJ never has earthquakes, this was my first.

    • Ali

      OMG you wuss!!!! I live in So Cal and have SLEPT through bigger earthquakes! All you east coast fucks need to chill out! Have you ever heard of Northridge? Yea, that was a REAL earthquake!!

      • douche

        Have you ever had planes flying into your office building?? ass-wipe….DC and NY have to think about these things

        • Ali

          Were talkin about earthquakes, dumbass. And your gonna use 9/11 as a come back? Pleaaaaseee!

          • douche

            oh thats right the earthquake alarm went off. So what you're saying is that we should have realized it was an earthquake because of all the experience with earthquakes? The only times things have shaken in DC are when bad shit happens. Especially when its followed by low flying military air crafts (which happened immediately following). All in all, the best part was when i saw a woman screaming and running out of a government building.

        • real douche ^^^

          Agreed, you do have to think about those things, but once you've figured it out it wasn't one of those things, get the !@#$! over it.

          • douche

            agreed. It was the shiny thing for the day.

      • PoorDawg

        Remember when everyone in SoCal was freaking over that little baby tornado? Kinda the same thing

        • Slappy

          Remember when Godzilla attacked NY instead of Tokyo and everyone in NY was like "Oh shit! and Tokyo was like "Whatever." Same thing.

          • ssstoopid

            AMEN! That shit was scary!

      • ShakeyTheMoyle

        Ali, the Earthquake Hipster B)…..I believe you are just the nozzle sir…just the nozzle!

    • DC Chillin

      As someone that works in D.C. I'll just say we were happy it was just an earthquake.

      • float

        oh you are such a douche, dc chillin

    • Biggus Diccus

      Never thought I'd spawn a East coast West Coast feud. Oh yeah and a hurricane is coming Saturday YIPEEE!!

    • Rocks Off

      I have no doubt that the east coasters were freaked out since the last big earthquake there was a generation ago. But understand that many west coasters have experienced at least one earthqauke and possibly more during the last 25 years. I was 70 miles away from the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989 and damn near the epicenter of the Northridge earthquake in 1994. Now those were earthquakes. California farts 5.8's every year, it's no big deal out here. So when we call you east coasters pussies it's because you are.

      • douche

        call me when you have a hurricane to deal with, pussy

    • Extinct Dinosaur

      Y'all are all pussies. We had a big ass rock smashed into the earth in our day.

  • lawd

    #18. Damn.
    Now that is devastation.


      Oh! The huge manatee!

    • Da_Boz


    • Charlie

      Where the hell is FEMA during this disaster?!!

    • FolleRousse

      only picture that makes me give the slightest fuck

    • ShakeyTheMoyle

      I teared up 😦

    • Johnny

      the only real devastation from the "earthquake". Pussies.

  • rhmath

    people say that dogs bark right before a natural disaster i say when dogs bark in unison they cause a natural disasters

  • Mikey from Boston

    ok ok, this was pretty good. i admit, we lost our shit when our building was swaying a little here in boston yesterday a.m.

    • FlyingSpagMonst

      Must have been a train because the quake didn't hit till just before 2:00pm.

  • Chamezz

    Whining about a 5.9, ROFL. You'd sleep through a 5.5 without noticing it unless you're a very light sleeper.

    • Hiyoooo

      hey tough guy

    • Jen

      good for you, jerkoff.

      • Chamezz

        So you get mad because I'm stating a fact and you resort to personal attacks? Pathetic.

        • Fasteddy14

          She was stating a fact too. Jerkoff

    • Ali

      That's what I'm sayin! I've slept thru bigger earthquakes!! What a bunch of pansies! We had a 5.9 where I lived last year, and no one in my office even flinched!

      • Guest

        Sure , when you're used to that stuff. Let's see you get 2 feet of snow in 3 hours (which you aren't used to) and not freak out. We don't get earthquakes much here so, yeah , it was unsettling.

        • illuminati

          or a hurricane…thats always fun to be in…….good luck florida with that new one headin your way

      • shane

        "I thought only a$$holes used the word pansy"

        • Ali

          "I thought only douche bags replaced the letter 's' with $"

          • mouse

            You're replying to a quote from a movie douche bag.

    • sarcasm

      to be fair to the east coast, it was a VERY shallow quake.

  • Gevth
    • Gevth

      …aaaand now I see The Chive had this same idea in the DMA.

  • Rick Van de Schepop

    #18 is prolly the worst that happened :'D

    • Amy Krananborg

      who cares..its just wine

  • the_junglist

    –Breaking News: It's just been established by the administration that the DC earthquake occurred on a rare and obscure faultline, apparently known as "Bush's Fault".

    • koolaid

      A LOT of people below bush contributed greatly to the current state of things, whether you want to believe it or not.

      • DoucheMcFuckstain

        Koolaid you take the fun out of funny.

        • Palmer8

          so its just ny?

    • ROFL

    • Tomas

      Yep… Bush's Fault, Congress' Fault, Tea Party's Fault and the persistent It'sNotMy Fault. Obama's been know to occupy these regions for the last two and a half years.

    • Cody

      o ya totally n now were just waitn on obama to fix it like he said he wud

  • Lumpy

    #9 and #18 are tragic 😦

    • Bill

  • AnyoneForCoffee


    Holy sheet! That's Wolf Blitzer! I didn't know it was THAT big a deal!

    • Early Cuyler
