Links: Aftermath of the East Coast earthquake

Pin it

earthquake damage in D.C.

As a native Californian, I am giggling at the reactions to the 5.9 magnitude earthquake we had over our lunch break here on the East Coast. Everyone is still buzzing hours later with what many are calling their first earthquake experience. It's all incredibly endearing.

D.C. clearly had it the worst, being so close to the epicenter and all. Can you imagine such devastation?

A Dominique Strauss-Kahn press conference was rudely interrupted. Watch a video of the media springing into action.

Some are sure that the Washington Monument is about to join the ranks of The Leaning Tower of Pisa, claiming it's been tilted since the quake hit.

For those of you searching aimlessly for some sort of explanation for this natural disaster, the gods may be protesting bare bosoms, since it's National Go Topless Day and there are a bunch of naked boobs loose in Central Park.

And yes, those of you who tasted the first bit of drunkenness of the day during the shaky few seconds, there are some earthquake-themed bar specials this evening in New York to keep the good times rolling.
