I've lived in New Jersey all my life and have never felt an "earthquake" or anything until 1999 when I went to California for E3.
I was working for a PlayStation website and there was 4 of us crammed into a room at an East LA Hilton.
One night I got back late, so I had to sleep on the floor. The next morning, I woke up when someone was gently shaking me like "hey, wake up", and I rolled over and NO ONE WAS THERE. I was sleeping under the window and looked up and the blinds were gently rocking back and forth. I wasn't scared or anything, I was just like "huh".
Later in the morning when everyone was up I mentioned it, and my roomates (and the people in the next room over) didn't feel it. They said I came back drunk and imagined it.
But I didn't. I witnessed what I guess you Californians call a tremor.

Last time we had one we had to worry about was Isabelle back in 03. I was living across the street from the beach in Norfolk at the time. It wasn't too bad for us, though our apartments trash dumpster got swpet away and never found. Worst part was the Harrison Fishing Pier got completly destroyed. Which sucked because it had been there for about 20-30+ years. At least its been rebuilt, but it took the bitch that owns the property two years to get off her alcoholic ass to rebuild it
When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

My favorite is I was hiking and a metorite hit and caused a good skake and a big scare. The best part was they never found where it hit, but it hit upstate NY. If you can't find where it hit then how do you know where it hit? I'm think an alien spacecraft.

There was an earthquake in my pants but that was from a Burrito I ate.
Del Taco FTW!!!
Mr Simon was there, too, as well as other Germans who lived through the Berlin blockade like Gerhard Kapito.

The one that I felt was only like a 3.6 (which is still really intense)

The one good thing that came out of that one was instead of being in classes, we sat in the gym (the only building in the school that wasn't a century old) for the rest of the day. Part of the roof of our school collapsed.
I was getting ready to go upstairs and yell at my neighbors until I realized that it was a slight earthquake (felt it more than the previous one here...maybe it's because it was right near Berkeley) rather than someone getting a little excited...
