It’s not funny to joke about earthquakes, especially since we never know when one will hit. Yes, California always get a bad rap and the big one will come eventually. However, you got to admit there have been some peculiarities about a 5.9 magnitude earthquake that caused people all along the eastern seaboard to run out of their buildings and panic.
For goodness sakes, you live on the East Coast, where it’s hot and muggy as hell during the summer, and cold as Antarctica during the winter. If you guys can stand to suffer for 10 months out of the year, what’s a little shake and bake? Nothing at all!
Living on the East Coast is like choosing the red door which has a hairy masochist in a gimp suit waiting to smash your pinky finger with a sledgehammer everyday. Just when the bleeding starts to coagulate, you get another bash! Since it’s a free country, you could easily choose to walk through the West Coast blue door where there lies a super model waiting to give you a rub down every afternoon. Haven’t you seen Katy Perry’s California Girls video where everybody is all sexy with lollipops? Because of the freedom of choice, I admire my brothers and sisters on the East Coast so much for their strength! After 10 years there, I had to get out and now I’m a soft mound of dough relaxing out West.
We’ve had this debate before about East Coast vs. West Coast, and the conclusion is hands down that the West Coast provides a far superior quality of life than the East Coast. Don’t believe me? Click on both articles and read the 200 comments to see the light! The only people to object to this tautology are those who’ve never spent more than a month living on the West Coast, or who have never even been to the West Coast in the first place!
As the optimist that I am, the good thing about the Virginia earthquake is that East Coasters will stop making fun of those who live in California. It’s like you guys think we have devastating earthquakes everyday or something. The amount of hurricanes and tornadoes that rip through the East Coast every year causes multiple times more damage than the average blue moon earthquake here.
The other great thing about living on the East Coast is that things can’t get much worse. Wherever you go travel or decide to retire, life will be that much better! For those who live in Hawaii or California, it’s going to be a little rough retiring elsewhere. That’s why we never leave. However, on the upside, think about how much money you’ll save on housing and watermelons!
So let us all pray that the big one never hits either of our coasts and come to the acceptance that the West Coast is the best coast. Glad everyone is OK and if you’re from the East Coast, I’m just playing with you. The two months of the year in Fall really are spectacular! Stay safe America!
Readers, where were you when the Big Virginia quake hit? I was getting a massage from my super model masseuse when I got a Tweet notification of mass pandemonium of flight cancellations and building evacuations.
