    Perhaps a group of fat people were trying out 'aerobics'.

    Hey, I live in Cumbria (north-west) and there has just been an earth tremor or something. Everyone on my Facebook is talking about it, Glasses rattling, t.v's shaking and all sorts!

    Does anybody know anything about this? I didn't know we could have any sort of quakes considering we're nowhere near tectonic boundaries or anything.

    It was erm...weird

    Oooh wonder if my sister felt it in Appleby. I've felt one before, it was like the person upstairs was moving their furniture.

    Apparently there was a huge one in Japan earlier today. My friend in Kendal says his living room wall has a huge crack right down the middle... scary.

    We had one a few years back and it was mental my full house shook and it was really loud. Sounded like we had a digger about to demolish it, safe to say I bricked it.

    You think you bricked it? I'm currently on the coast of a tiny island in the Atlantic where we just had two earth tremors.

    I can hear the ocean from my bed and I practically **** bricks every time I hear a wave get louder and louder.

    **** me.
