Tongue in cheek or not, I don't particularly like it when people say they wouldn't care if my father was killed.

So is that a significant quake or what?

We don't actually have them here since we quit injecting atomic weapons into the ground back in the 60s. :D

4.5 is ok. I personally didn't feel it, I was high on nyquil at the time sound asleep. My wife didn't feel it either.

Nope...it's a good 4-5 second jolt.
