    I'm sure some of you may have heard about this, but apparently people felt it all the way up in Canada. I live in Delaware and can personally attest to never experiencing an earthquake in DE and not knowing anyone else who has. Not saying there has never been one before, but it obviously is a very rare event.

    I was at work and didn't feel the quake, but I heard my brother announce over the PA for everyone to leave the building. Got outside and people were freaking out: OMG my cell phone isn't working! I just had to laugh, and said what are you going to do if service doesn't come back to your phone? I was in part joking, but really there are so many ignorant sheeple in our country.

    Long story short, I went on Facebook and was astounded by all the ppl posting on Facebook and decided to post the following video on my Facebook page. Thought I'd let my brothas at GoTitans take a gander as well.

    I am not a very big fan of NASA for a number of reasons, but take it as you wish.

    PS apparently I don't know how to embed a youtube video in a post on here. My bad, someone school me please.

    I lol'd when he said "come up with a pet preparedness plan"

    I think that guy is an idiot... or maybe he's just preaching to idiots who have no common sense.

    Either way, if you live in fear like that, actually thinking about disasters, coming up with plans to be prepared, well... your life sucks.

    It'll be at LEAST 5-7 more years before I even think about having kids.

    When I do have kids, I won't come up with a preparedness plan. My kids can figure what to do out on their own.

    I don't believe in the women/children first rule... and neither does Michael Scott.

    Kind of weird NASA producing emergency preparedness videos.

    What kind of threats would NASA deal with?

    Is there something they are not telling us?

    Notice how the NASA guy insinuated there is another form of life on another planet...
