I'm staying the **** away from California for awhile until a giant ass earthquake hits. I would not like to live there at all.

MIGRATION TO WESTERN ARIZONA AS CALIFORNIA LEAVES TO HANG OUT WITH HAWAII.

Seriously, though, condolences to any victims, and let's hope that there are no casualties from this earthquake or the ones that are to come.

Originally they sent out a Tsunami warning, they've cancelled that now. It was off shore, near somewhere called Crescent City. Hopefully no one is hurt, and there are no aftershocks...

Seems to me our planet is in a state of flux. I pray the casulaties are minimal. I sure hope the New Madrid Fault isn't next...it seems things are working this way.......Guess I'll say my prayers and party like it's 1999. What else can one do?
