    In Washington, DC, that's probably the only thing that might work!

    Earthquakes are scary no matter how long you've been experiencing them. But they can be quite a heart-stopper if you never experienced one before.

    The West Coast teases East Coast.

    Post-quake, West teases East on social networks - Yahoo! News
    On Facebook, Twitter and even Google's fledging Plus network, people asked Tuesday if it was really an earthquake they just felt or perhaps Godzilla paying a visit. For many, it was the first quake they ever experienced.

    Their West Coast peers, more used to such rumblings, promptly started making fun of them.

    "Really all this excitement over a 5.8 quake??? Come on East Coast, we have those for breakfast out here!!!!" wrote Dennis Miller, 50, a lifelong California resident whose house in Pleasanton sits on an earthquake fault line. He said he's had a number of people click "like" on his post on Facebook — all of them from the West Coast, though.
