Listening to news1130, the past hour has been about the quake.

Was reminded that a 9.0 earthquake would be 15,000x stronger than the one that occurred tonight.

Was sitting on the can, thanks to having the stomach flu or food poisoning. The first thought that came to my mind, is that of all days a potentially hazardous earthquake trembles through is the day I may literally shit myself.

Was working at downtown the whole night. Didn't feel a thing. Only found out when friend msg me. We were hanging some pretty heavy things in the ceiling any movement we would have noticed. Anybody else also in downtown at the time? Wondering if it's the building I was in or downtown just didn't felt it...

Probably a well designed building.......... gentle sway instead of direct transferring of shock waves. Japanese technology, maybe?

Me and friend's conversation on the quake
Friend: "dude, I was fapping and then the whole fucking house shook"
Me: "ok... , I guess you could resume shortly"
Friend: "no, dude, it scared the shit out of my dong and now it doesn't respond to any porn I throw at him"
Me:

If the epicentre was indeed in Victoria area, like this one, I doubt there would be a huge tsunami. Just by the way the island(s) and inlets are situated. If it were off the coast a bit further out, then that'd be a different story.

Also, it all depends on what type of shit is underneath us (sand, silt, soil, bedrock, etc.). I would imagine a lot of sinking and breaking apart more than damage from a tsunami. I should have paid more attention in Earth Science classes.

Not my "fault", chick next to me was hot!

IIRC it's good that these smaller earthquakes are happening, to relieve the pressure preventing one huge one.

Not sure if that's true, but I recall hearing it somewhere and it makes sense

Yes, release of pressure on shorter intervals is way better than pent up energy over long periods of time........... sort of like no fap challenge. NVM, bad analogy.

Debatable. Earthquake magnitudes are measured on a logarithmic scale, so you'll need a substantial ( 10^N ) amount of smaller earthquakes to dissipate the energy of a larger ( the big one ) earthquake.

some say small ones are a precursor to a big one, so yes, debatable.

someone in this thread mentioned another earthquake further south of us. We are part of the ring of fire, but we are also in close proximity to a smaller plate.

man, I find this shit to be so interesting. Make me want to go back to school.............. not!

As ntan already mentioned, energy on quakes is exponential from one level to another.

link

The idea that small quakes releases the likelihood from big one is more of a urban myth than an actual fact.

If anything, this could be a warm-up to a larger quake based on history of major quakes.
