I'm not kidding, but I was just in the kitchen putting the finishing touches to my car I'm racing tomorrow and the entire house shook violently..... I mean really violently - I could see it moving!
I almost dropped my bum out and thought it was coming down around me - went outside and theres only a medium breeze and no bins over so it wasn't the wind - no damage but everyones looking out of their houses and its just gone 1 am... I am not alone!

Few! It scared the sh*t out of us! Not long in bed, just dropped of to sleep, then get woken up by a bang and the whole house shaking BIG TIME!!. Thought the tv was going to fall of it stand it was shaking that much.

When I first heard the bang I thought it wa the daughter coming into our bedroom and falling into the tv unit or sumat.

I thought something had exploded, it was that loud.

Impressive.

How come, when I'm living on a huge fault line in a high risk earth quake zone... ENGLAND gets a bigger earthquake... ITS NOT FAIR. In 6 months I'll only felt 1 tiny tremor, and 1 that shook my bed across the room.... RUBBISH.

Jealous guys.

I know it woke the neighbours because they started banging each other afterwards. :wtf::cry:

That wasn't fun. :thumbdown:

It must have been a case of: "Well...we're awake now" <squeek> <squeek> <grunt> <squeek> <grunt> <ahhhhh>.
