Was That An Earthquake?

This should be filed under perfect timing: yesterday California State University, Monterey Bay had organized an earthquake drill complete with police, rescue workers, and actors to play victims. Five minutes into the drill a real earthquake hit. Reportedly "it didn't appear that anybody who took part in the drill was noticeably frightened by the real quake." Probably because they figured it was all part of the simulation.

Yeah, I hope they don't try a nuclear war drill.

Yet another time God decided to play a prank. Even the all-powerful have to have fun sometimes.

Big Gary C, don't you mean nucular? If our esteemed Mr. President pronounces it that way, it must be right....

Yeah, Mark R, that's all part of the phony Texas accent Shrub uses to cover up his Eastern prep-school origins.
I have a REAL Texas accent, and I pronounce it "new-clear."
