    Enormous earthquake in Iran

    Not many details yet (USGS is making noises about 8.0) but I'm seeing tweets asking about an earthquake from Dubai and New Delhi at the same time.

    I don't like the sound of this.

    Something very eerie about an attack on a running event and an Earthquake in Iran on the same day.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    You'd hope not in India, being an entire country and a bit away.

    Ya it was too far from the epicenter to be dangerous in India.

    What's with Iran and earthquakes off late?. Just last week a quake killed closet to 40 people.

    Should probably call my Dad in Lahore to see if he felt anything. But then he'll ask me if I paid his bills so maybe I won't.

    yeah the tremors were quite significant even here in Dubai
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
