I survived the 2011 East Coast Earthquake, how about you?

So there I was, shaving, at 1:52 PM. I noticed that the shaving leftovers have stopped up the drain. So like any true American repairman I decided to beat it with my fists. That's when I noticed the water in the sink started to rapidly sway back and forth. I was thinking initially, "hey, I guess all that working out is working out! I must be getting stronger!" But then I knew something was wrong when I stopped hitting the sink the water continued to shift back and forth. So I stood straight up, and that's when i noticed the ground was shifting rapidly back and forth. More like a swaying actually. I noticed all the lights where now swinging back and forth as well. I got into a stance that made it look as if I was surfing on the floor, and if anyone was watching I'm sure i looked like an idiot. The swaying lasted for about 10-15 seconds, but it was quite an experience. You don't get many earth quakes in New York, well ANY actually. Which is why my initial thoughts didnt immediately recognize it as an earthquake.  someway somehow I know this is ishoka's fault. XD How about you guys? I know a few of you from the earthquake area, what happened with you?

I was asleep. Woke up and felt my bed shaking. Figured it was a large truck going by (Which happens every so often and since my bed is against the wall can cause it to shake). But then I felt the shaking getting stronger and stuff started falling off my desk and such in my room. By the time it was over (About 30 seconds) I sat up and was like "What the fuck?! Was that a earthquake?! That was an earthquake! What the Fuck?!". All is fine though. Nothing broken here. Also im in Maryland.

i felt it. im surprised i immediately identified it as an earthquake, as here in CT it wasnt much more than a slight feeling of ones equilibrium possibly playing tricks with them combined with the feeling of something like a truck going by.

I was at a lake.  The waves were totally freaky.  It knocked down the a cairn shaped like a Dalek.  :-(

It was felt near Charlotte, NC. Down in Gastonia, where I live, my windowsills rattled a bit, but that was all. I've never even been near an earthquake before, so hearing of one so close was kinda cool.

I've read we're on some thing referred to as "global up tick". MSM doesn't seem to want to report it. We're going to be seeing much more seismic and volcanic activity, in places humans haven't seen in a LONG time. From what I understand it is due to long term cycles in earth's internal mechanism. I think that whole pole shift thing is supposed to be part of it too. There's also some shit about a new planet drifting through our solar system? (don't know, that sounds rather fantastical) I have no clue if that's actually happening. There's also the 2012 planetary alignment thingie, don't think that would be a factor though. I haven't had time to properly go over all the data. There's also a solar cycle peeking or some thing. so much shit going on @.@;
