Re: Major earthquake in Northern California
Sounds like my first earthquake experience.
I was at work in a meeting. Old building in a manfacturing plant with exposed pipes, covered with what was probably asbestos. Found out years later the whole site I worked on was a SuperFund site.
Stuff started grumbling, I said "what the heck is that" and someone mumbled.."little earthquake". I grabbed a pipe and started squeezing. The other 10 cali's chuckled and said "look at the east coaster...ok...you got a pipe...now what you gonna do with it?"
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
