OT...What's going on with all the earth quakes?

I understand there have been 5 earth quakes near Manchester this past week. Keith what have you been up too?

There have been loads in the past 2 days, had another few today. It's getting quite annoying actually, now that the novelty has worn off. I'm just wondering why suddenly we're getting loads of the bleeders, sounds like Manchester is about to cave in on itself.

Sirzap. Point of geography, Keith and his Bacon butties are a hundred miles or so away from Manchester. Can't be his stomach rumbling can it

Now why did everyone immediately think Keith had something to do with it ?

It all started during his 10 day absence...

As I understand it there are no fault lines under that part of the the land...I was thinking he had started a excersise program and was doing daily jumping jacks, shaking the bedrock in the process...

Is that such a bad thing?

Manchester...Earthquakes, we laugh at you. 2.9 on the old Richter scale, the mere sigh of a feather falling to earth.

Now here in the West Midlands our quake was 4.9! We don't mess about in the Black Country (back me up here David Manning).

People from Manchester wouldn't know an earthquake if it fell on them.

To all,

5,6 on Richter scale. That was 3 years ago and Athens really swang. Last quake I felt was on August, near Zakynthos island(Ionian sea). 4,5 if I remember well.

Bah Kieth, that singular quake you had there was more than noticeable up here too, but at least we Mancunians are polite enough to keep ours within our county

There are actually fault lines under Greater Manchester, 3 or so I do believe, but they aren't sure yet which fault line caused the recent quakes.

Quite appropriately, the last quake happened whilst I was in geography in college today...

Dan, I'm not gonna disagree with ye there, Manchester ain't the best place ever

Matt
