Today's Earth-Shattering List of the Day

Sometimes, a natural disaster hits and it brings us all together. Nothing could be more true for the West Coast when on August 23, 2011, the East coast felt a 5.9 earthquake from Virginia to Toronto and went into a fit of panic. Since the West Coast usually sleeps through earthquakes of this size, the West Coast got together (San Francisco, LA, Portland, Seattle, all working in perfect harmony) to relentlessly make fun of the East Coast “Earthquake Virgins” for about 12 hours. Because nothing happened.

Twitter then erupted with a barrage of snarky Tweets from funny people…
